10 Things That Are Awesome

I've mentioned it before on this blog but I always love checking out Days of the Year and seeing what random holiday/celebration is taking place that day. There is never a shortage of funny days to celebrate and sometimes I incorporate them into my work day. You know when it's national doughnut day or some other tasty food day I have to celebrate. I also got my office on board with national polka dot day last month which was pretty hilarious.

But today... Oh, today is National Day of Awesomeness and I hope you're all ready to celebrate! As described by the site in super-technical terms, today means:

So today I'm appreciating the awesome things in life:

- Finding an unused gift card in an old purse you haven't use in months. Score! 

- Shamrock shakes being back at McDonalds. This is the only time of year I stop in.

- Our kitchen appliances. We upgraded ours in December and the newness still has not worn off. I LOVE them. You know you're an adult when...

- Dog accounts on Instagram. As a non-pet owner but a major dog-lover, I stalk them an obscene amount to get my fix. Pudge the golden is my recent favorite.

- Gifts in the mail from friends for no reason. I don't deserve these people!!

- Freshly washed sheets. No better feeling at the end of a long day.

- Baby kicks/punches to the belly. It never gets old and is not a thing I take for granted.

- Rain/storms on a warm night with the windows open.

- Waking up way too early and realizing you have time to go back to sleep for another hour.

- Blog comments. Totally not dropping any hints or anything like that ;)

So there you have it. Pretty much anything goes today. Celebrate your awesome self, your awesome friends, something awesome you heard on the radio this morning. Doesn't matter- just appreciate the things in life that made you say, "Awesome!" today

  6. Things that are awesome? Totally agree on dogs of instagram (loving pudge too), finding a $5 in a jacket you haven't put on in months, freshly washed sheets, yes yes, and ESPECIALLY the fact that I am officially wearing sandals today - 70s! YAY!

  7. I love celebrating the random Days of the Year during the summer with the camp staff. Insisting everyone celebrate 'old joke' day or two different sock day and making it an announcement during staff meeting always gives everyone a fun and silly energy boost!
    This is the weekend I wash my sheets and I'm so excited to sleeping in fresh sheets on Sunday night!

  8. Hahaha...best excuse to celebrate ever? I love it. Shamrock Shakes are back! I haven't had one yet, but that's definitely on the docket for the next week or so. I'm also loving the rainstorms, as long as I'm inside. When I really sit down and think about it, there is a lot of awesome around me!

  15. Getting new appliances is seriously the best! I don't think that it'll ever get old getting to use them! And hooray for finding old gift cards! It's like finding a $20 bill that you didn't know that you had!

  24. I loved those baby kicks and jabs. People told me that they'd get old, start to hurt, etc. Nope. Loved them right up to the end. Even the direct hits to the bladder. :)

    Yay for blog comments! Those make me so happy too.

    Keep enjoying those new appliances!! They are always such a treat, right??
