THE FOLLIES OF A MEREDITH IN OKC

MY LIFE AS A GOLDFISH

1 Comment

ok, so yet again i create a challenge of extraordinary proportions.  and i am mentally like “yessssssss!  this will be the best thing ever!!!!!! and i will tooooootally do this every single day for.e.ver.”  and then five minutes later something else super shiny catches my eye & i forget about my original plan.

it’s official.  i have the attention span of a goldfish.

good intentions?  yes,  i have lots of those.  big ideas?  i’d say more than the average bear.  attention span?

wait….what was i saying?  (oh man, i’m sooooo funny…)

while i have been doing a mental hashtag of all the things i’m grateful for, i have not been great at putting that gratitude out there on the world-wide web like i originally intended. 

life got in the way.  i was way busy.  i needed to paint my nails.  mr bix had the hiccups.  it rained.  i had to brush my hair.  it was a sunday.  [fill in ridiculous excuse here].

which is lame.  all of the excuses are true, but still lame.  so here are the remaining 20 things i am grateful for…better late than never, right???

  1. my super awesome fanny pack.  it’s super.  it’s awesome.  and it holds things for me while i take my evening strolls around the neighborhood.
  2. wedding season…i love being a 2nd shooter.  i get to be apart of someone’s “happy moment”.  i get to eat free cake, i get to drink free wine, i get to dance to my favorite song “Shout!”, i get to kick it with my friend, i get to pick up my camera…aaaaand i get paid to do all of that.  pretty freakin sweet gig.
  3. my roommate.  he’s seriously so amazing that i can’t even use words to describe him.
  4. all of the awesome times hanging out with my fabulous friends.
  5. mix tapes.  they are the jam.
  6. going to see amazing live music.  it’s even jammier.
  7. the fact that my plants are still alive.  even the scary dandelion is pretty impressive.
  8. my brother graduating high school.  proud of you, littlest brother!
  9. thinking about upcoming vacations.
  10. finding hilariously poetic fortune cookie fortunes like this…
  11. sleeping in.  lately, that’s been a pretty scarce thing.  but when it happens, sweet baby jesus, it’s fantastic.
  12. finishing a book.  always a sense of accomplishment, even though it might be a silly book.
  13. HBO’s GIRLS.  dude.  i love that show.
  14. speaking of great shows…so you think you can dance is back on.  and that makes my heart happy.  and my dancing shoes dancy.
  15. oklahoma sunsets.  have you seen them lately?  gah.  breathtaking.
  16. photo inspiration.  i have 2 shoots that i really really really need to make happen.  in my head, they are legit.  now it’s time to make them happen!
  17. my family.  love you guys.
  18. the fact that my old school ipod still works.  seriously, that’s pretty amazing.  2005 technology at it’s finest.
  19. ashley’s sheet cake.  holy sheet, it is the best cake in the whole wide world.

and finally, in honor of tonight’s game…

20.  OKC Thunder making it to the finals….THUNDER UP!!!!!!!!
