Today at 4:00, I am going to tear up post it notes & make homemade confetti & I'm going to celebrate..
& yes, I am bummed that we're supposed to be packing up tonight & heading on the road for a wonderful trip to Gatlinburg... & that got kicked in the shins... or in Ricky's knee if I'm being totally accurate...
& I'm bummed that Ricky actually has to work part of our vacation.
Our anniversary is on Tuesday. 19 years. For the past 18 years, Ricky & I have been off... this will be the first time he has to work on our anniversary. Yeah... I'm a little sad at the turn of events this year...
BUT... like they say....
So my Five on Friday is going to be some of the things I'm planning on doing while I'm off...
I want to shop. I am in desperate need of fall & winter clothes. Summer & Spring, I'm good to go. I have so many maxi skirts & flip flops that I could switch every day & be good for a month. Winter? I have like 3 pairs of pants that I like... I'm on a mission. I want to find some good boots too. Complete the winter look. And with all of this, it means I am switching over my closet. Ugh. I hate that... but I'm determined to get rid of at least half of my closet. Because believe me, I don't wear half of it. I need the room. Get ready Goodwill... I'm heading to you with a load.
2. Sewing Machine
This is probably my biggest goal for my vacation. I want to learn to sew more then anything. & Ricky got me a sewing machine... like 5 years ago.... I know. Embarassing. But I have no where to put it & so it just has sat on the floor under my printer desk in my back room. Well, on vacation week, I'm doing something with it. Even if that means leaving it on the kitchen table for awhile. Heck, I don't cook anyways. I want to learn the basics & learn how to even thread the stupid thing. Watch out - I tend to get obsessed with new crafts so if this takes hold of me, my Instagram will be exploding with sewing things as well as knitting things.
3. Whole Foods / Trader Joes
Its not often I get to go out to these stores with them being so far away from us. I get so excited to go in there & see all the latest things I want to try. & since I am rarely out that way, I know my check book may shed a tear because 1. this place ain't cheap & 2. I want everything in it. I just saw on a friends blog a iced coffee concentrate thing that you add with ice & almond milk... how many bottles can I fit in my back seat? What else should I know about before I head out there?
4. Car Care
This isn't exciting but something I need to do. Something I never want to take the time during my work week. But I need to clean out my car. I basically live in my car ... & it shows. I need to clean out the whole vehicle & get in the nooks & crannies of it with a tooth brush. I need to get the carpets clean (who thought black carpet in a car was a good idea should be shot) & I need to take my car & get my oiled changed. Gotta take care of Miley Cyrus. I still have 4 more years of payments on her :)
Note: I named my car Miley Cyrus before she went nuts... I got my car right when she died her hair that light color - which is the same color of my car... & I said, she looks so "edgy" with the hair cut... & my car is an Edge... so thus, became the car name of Miley Cyrus... I may just change it to Blondie.
The best part of vacation. I want to take my alarm & tell it to shove off .... See ya! Stop bugging me with your loud beeping at 5 in the morning!
I know how I am though - I'll still be up by 6 or 7... guaranteed... the dogs still have their schedule & they know when its time for treats. But I'm going to try & relax as much as I can
... because a week goes by fast & I'm back to it in a measly 7 days...
So if I'm kinda in & out next week, y'all know I'm sleeping, or cleaning my car... or hopefully finding some awesome fashions...
