*cartwheels across the room*
I'm in a very good mood! You can tell, right? Yesssss I am :D :D
Day 3 of our improvised vacation (improVacation) wrapped up nicely and I am in avery happy place. We saw an awwwwwww inducing, movie about an older couple trying to get the spark back into their marriage today. Hope Springs, starring Meryll Streep and Tommy Lee Jones. Lots of lessons I'll share with you later. This post is about yesterday. Day 2.
I posted this pic on Twitter on our way to the movies yesterday and my head is still swelling from the compliments. Y'all know I have no shame when it comes to getting positive feedback :D :D My sister's husband said it is obvious that I have been "revitalized" since The Hubs got back. See my life? So I have been "devitalized" since abi? It's true though. He just has a way of "gingering my swagger" lol. It's obvious I'm high. Very high.
Did I mention that I got us the movie tickets for free? Yeah! I collected promo codes from cereal boxes and exchanged them for movie tickets online. The buzz I got was just >>>> Look out for me on Extreme Couponing soon ;)
We did Japanese cuisine after. Chicken and Shrimp Teriyaki. Yum yum yum. And the number one enemy of my waistline, ice cream from MarbleSlab. Counting calories is not permitted when you're on holiday, so zero guilt.
These past couple of days have been extra special, perhaps cos this whole "ImproVacation" The Hubs came up with has a big lesson in it for me. Real life, the way things are for me right now and perhaps you too, can be crazy, unpredictable, refusing to go according to plan, but we have a choice. We can complain about how nothing seems to be going our way and make ourselves (and those around us) miserable, or we can choose to make the best of it and have a great time if we take our eyes off what's not working and remember to be thankful for what is.
"A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face;The most inexpensive holiday of my life has turned out to be the best by far. I am grateful for an amazing man, who is teaching me to make the best of what life brings. Steady helping me become a better person. Leading by example.
a sad heart makes it hard to get through the day."
I celebrate you, Adebola. When I count my blessings, I count you twice.
Three hearty cheers for my "Chairman"
I'm laughing so hard,there are tears in my eyes. I am one grateful girl. I owe it all to God. He has blessed me more than I deserve. If you're believing Him for a miracle, I join my faith with yours. He will bring His word to pass in your life. Did I hear you say Amen?
Thanks for coming by again and again.
May your dreams come true
