Dose Of Happy – IRL

30 Jan

Over at Band Back Together we’re feeling like we want to junk punch the next person who asks us if we have a case of the Mondays.  So instead of doing the time in the resulting anger management program, we decided to take Monday back.  So we’re linking up our Dose of Happy posts and bringing the awesome back to Mondays.  You can play too.  Now get  your happy on.

Happys are getting harder and harder to locate what with all these gray and rainys and the SADs and the depressed economy and the Bachelor still cranking out seasons.  But I had myself a big ole happy in the form of my first Band meetup.  I had lunch with Shevaun, y’all!  And she was freaking awesome because…obvi.

I was nervous due to all the social anxiety and real life person thing, but she was nice and funny and smart and a little bit cheeky all rolled into one.  And she didn’t make me feel like a glutton for inhaling my food in a manner of seconds.  Plus she let me take a picture, even though she’s anti-pictures(as am I for the record.)  But she’s purty and I’m not too hideous of a beast, albeit a little wrinkly around the eye area.

All in all she added up one total badass chick.  She was nervous too, and admitted it, which made me feel right at home instead of the total loser I had been feeling like.   Also?  She was reading a book when I arrived.  Her goal is to read 200 books this year.  Pretty sure she’s halfway there.  My goal?  20.  Which is a stretch what with the tornado that resides within my home.

So happy that I finally got to meet her IRL and hope to do it again real soon.  Because I forgot to ask to see the pegacorn wallet and that is something everyone should see at least once in a lifetime.

    Woot! that sounds like it was a good time. 200 books! I haven’t read 20 since I had kids. (Before that … no problem.)

    I think I’ll be happy with 20 too. Awesome you had a meet up.

    Sounds like a great time! I think the photo is beautiful of you both. I’m impressed by 20 books in a year, I think I’ve read 3-4 in the last 18 months oops.

      I haven’t read many in the past few years, but now that Bubs is a bit older there’s more time. But baby bean might throw a monkey wrench in any of your reading plans for some time:)

    I’m jealous! I totally want to meet both of y’all IRL because you’re both totally awesome. I need to come out to the west coast sometime. I did get to meet Teala this weekend though and that was pretty damn cool. She’s cute as a button with that awesome southern accent.
