Hi readers of My Life My Way! I’m Sel and I blog over at Growing Laughing and Loving in Life. I’m a High School Teacher turned sahm to my most favoritest kid, my sweet daughter M. While my husband is hard at work, you can find M and I doing arts and crafts, having dance parties, doing sing-alongs, and playing dress up with tutu skirts, tiaras and painting each others nails. When The Husband gets home? He often joins us for the above activities. We’re lucky.
When Nikki first said she needed guest bloggers while she’s off frolicking with great company on sandy beaches with probably a mimosa (or two?) in hand, I stayed quiet. (I may or may not have added the parts other than her just needing a guest blogger. Just stay with me)
I mean, Nikki is one of my blogger bff’s. I wanted to help her out, but what could I write about on her blog? I’m too busy being jealous of her destination vacation while I’m stuck in cold, usually overcast, and snowy weather to write a decent post. But when Nikki then text me asking me to guest post for her, I knew I needed to get my jealousy under control so I could write a post.
And so I did. Sort of.
I just pretended that I was going on vacation instead of Nikki. Easy enough.
I decided to compile a list of the Top Five Things I’d Do If I Was Going To Sunny Florida.
1.) I’d Stuff My Face
Don’t get me wrong. I stuff my face without being on vacation. But there’s some type of guilt-free eating in the world that accompanies being on vacation. And this 4.5 month pregnant lady is quite alright with that.
2.) I’d Sleep. A lot.Thank the Lord my two year old daughter loves sleep. She has always been a fantastic sleeper and is pretty much a dream child. But I guess being pregnant has made me tired. (go figure) And so, on vacation? I’d sleep. More than I probably should. But it’s vacation. So whatever.
3.) Go To The BeachAn obvious one, I know. But I’d probably stuff my face, go to the beach, then go to sleep.
4.) People WatchLet’s be honest, shall we? We’ve all people watched at some point in our lives. Maybe more intentional at some times than others. But when you’re at the beach, the people there are so.amazingly.entertaining. I’ve never seen a truck filled with teenagers hoisting an American flag drive by, followed by a cop car, followed by an old lady in a jeep wrangler wearing only a string bikini, then being followed by the hottest guy I’ve ever seen. (I have Virginia Beach to thank for these sitings) But being from the Jersey Shore, I’ve seen some crazy ish. But that’s for another post.
5.) I’d Do NothingSeriously. When was the last time you just sat down, took a deep breath and thought, “I have no idea what time it is, I don’t have anywhere to be, and I have no responsibilities for a little while. I’m going to do nothing right now.” You probably haven’t said that for a while. Or ever, right?
So my list is perfect for me. Maybe it’s good for you. But we all know Nikki is making out the best, tanning and relaxing and enjoying life. And no one deserves it more than her.
Thanks for letting me take over your corner of the interwebs, Nikki!
