There are a few things that have been going on over the past couple of days that make me feel like I'm "winning":

-It's now "summer vacation" for me, and I'm enjoying the idea of being away from the nonsense of work for the next few weeks or more. I'm also writing this from bed, while watching the Today show, and drinking my coffee. Life is good :) (and yes, I felt the daggers you all just sent me) :)

- Our trip to the shore is only 1 day away. Time at the beach with MG's family, MG not glaring at me in the mornings when he has to go to work and I don't, and sunshine! Can't go wrong! :)

- MG and I discovered Bud Light Lime-a-Ritas at the grocery store this weekend. They are quite tasty (kinda like Smirnoff ices) and somehow made their way into our cart, and are making their way to the beach with us tomorrow. There are 12 of them--think that counts for the HOV lanes? :)

-I managed the impossible: getting MG to tolerate the Bachelorette being on the tv for over an hour. Given, part of this was because he was playing a game on his tablet, BUT I know he was listening because he was commenting about the guys on the show. It made me laugh, but I kept my mouth shut. Gotta reel him in and get him interested first :)

-Each day that I have off of work, is one more day that I have time to pack up and move my stuff out of my apartment. All of which gets me closer to being done with Miss Messy (that might actually be the nicest name that I've been able to give

-MG's family is having family pictures taken one day while we're at the beach this week, and guess who has been included in that? :) Couldn't feel more loved and accepted!

-Pinky and I invested in some presents to ourselves this past week with our purchase of the following:

We actually didn't do this intentionally on purpose, but when you both gravitate towards the same thing....what's better than the adult version of "bestie" rings? :)  (Lindsey, don't worry, our future Stella & Dot purchases will be through you, lady!)

And, those are just a few of the reasons why I feel like I'm "winning" lately! And now, I'm off to head over to my old apartment to clear out and pack some more things! Hope you have a good Tuesday!
