Back and Better Than Ever

Hello there!

So sorry for my lack of a post yesterday, it was my first day back at school after being home sick for most of the week, so I didn't have a lot of time or energy to schedule a post.
But, as the title of this post suggests, I'm back, renewed, refreshed and better than ever! 

Today, reallllly early, Mama and Daddy went over to our local Toyota dealership and they're bringing home this bad boy:

Even though I won't legally be able to drive it until August 9th, and BB, what with his recent mishaps on the road, won't be allowed to drive it until at least Easter, its presence in our driveway will still be a heck of a thrill.
The only downside? Two words: stick shift. Blarrrggghhh. But hey, I'll get used to it. Right?

But wait, there's more! In the way of exciting news, I've been cleared to dig these puppies out of the depths of my gym bag and take them chasing pavement:

 And just in time, too! Spring Track "try-outs" (we use that term loosely) start next Monday!

Oh oh oh! And, Monday is President's Day so there's no school for me, BB, LB, or Mama. That's right, she gets the day off, too.

It's all so exciting, I'm grinning ear-to-ear just writing this post. 

Anyone else have super-exciting good news to share as well? I'd love to hear what's got you smiling!

Have a fantastic Saturday!



  1. I'm glad you're feeling better! That's exciting y'all are getting a new truck! Stick shifts really aren't that bad once you get the hang of it :) I hope you have a great long weekend!

  2. Getting a new car is always exciting!! but I can NOT drive a stick shift! Good luck learning ;) And you're so lucky you get a long weekend! Soak up every minute of it!

  3. My dad has that ruck in silver. It is so boss!Stick shift isn't that bad. Driving in traffic with it is a pain though.
