ten on tues

This past weekend was a doozy. Want to know why? Because I got my first sunburn of 2016. 

Isn't that so special?! It's like a baby's first steps or a child's first day of school. My very first sunburn of the year! Where's my mom to take a picture and brag about my sunburn accomplishment on her Facebook? Oh wait, I'm an adult so am I supposed to brag about myself on Facebook? Ugh, the rules of social media brags are so complicated. 

Anyways in honor of such a success of a weekend in my book, I decided to celebrate 10 On Tuesday by making a list of other 2016 firsts I can't wait to make happen. 

1 | My first mosquito bite! Where will he bite me?! When?! Will I come out with one bite or fifty?! Will my blood be as tasty as it has been for the past twenty-six years?! Oh my gosh, the suspense is killing me. 

2 | My first second, third, fourth, and eleventeenth sunburns of the year. If there is one thing I am good at, it's not putting on sunscreen. I swear I apply it on a nekkid body and get a good layer on, but somehow a ghost comes in and wipes it off my body in random streaks that the sun manages to find within my first five to ten minutes outside. 

3 | A viral blog post. I'm still waiting on my first viral blog post(s) of the years 2010-2015 to happen. Patience is a virtue. Or something. 

4 | The first time I remind someone that my birthday is coming up. <---does that count? Nah, that's just mentioning it. I'll probably wait another month or so before I start the countdown to July 15. It's just getting so close! #fourmonths

5 | 2016 is the year of Freddie and Emily's friends getting married. Our first wedding of about five or six starts in June so I can't wait for my first hey-I-drank-some-glasses-of-wine-and-now-me-and-my-selfie-stick-can't-get-off-the-dance-floor of 2016

6 | My first class as a fully, comprehensively certified Pilates teacher. Oh hey, here's a friendly reminder that my test out is in four weeks. Excuse me while I go simultaneously vom, cry, and study.

7 |  A random love note from Freddie. I keep thinking one day this year I'll get a note on my pillow or kitchen counter or a pocket or a sock or...somewhere that says HEY! Emily! You're my favorite wife! or Emily! I love you! The most! Lupe, don't read this. Or something. But then I remember that Freddie has never really done that before so maybe I should just be okay that he keeps cooking me gourmet dinners every night. I've definitely already had my first (through ninetieth) Freddie dinner of 2016.

8 | Using our wedding china. It's a special day when those babies get used. By special I mean when Freddie and I decide that eating tacos off of china would be cool.

9 | A vague Facebook status. How is it the end of March and I haven't posted a vague, yet meaningful and deep Facebook status?! And gotten at least twenty comments with people offering their support for said horrible vagueness happening in my life. Ugh, I am so failing at this internet thing this year. 

10 | Let's finish with a bang. I can't wait for the first time I DON'T stuff my face while eating Tex Mex fajitas. Who am I kidding? That isn't going to happen any year of my life while living in Texas. 

Have you already gotten sunburned this year? If so, may I peel it?

Linking up with Karli

LOL- Emily! I think this could be the post that goes viral because you crack me up!! :) Except no more sunburns allowed- ouch ouch ouch! How fun that you have lots of friend weddings to attend this year, I feel like Jared and I haven't been to a wedding in FOREVER. 2009-2010 were the years we had 6-8 weddings each, WHEW! I miss it sometimes though ;)

Tacos off china sounds like perfection, lady!

Haha! I'm surprised that you haven't gotten your first mosquito bite of the year yet, especially with all of the rain we've gotten! Hopefully you can hold out for a while! I'm still waiting on a viral blog post too, don't worry! So funny at the vague Facebook status! It always annoys the heck out of me when people post stuff like that, like why in the world do you even post in the first place? I had somebody post about something special their kid said to them, and that what the kid said was too special to share. Ummm... didn't you just basically share everything except exactly what she said?

Haha, this post is the best! Maybe it'll go viral. ;) I thought I got a sunburn in Chicago this weekend, but Chris informed me it was probably a wind burn! Haha. :) I miss Tex-Mex so much. Seriously can't wait to move back to Texas just for Tex-Mex!

Bust out that china, girl!! Tacos for the win :)

Hi, I'm Susannah! said...

I did get a sunburn already, thanks for asking. ;-) Although I didn't get it here in the PNW... I got it on vacation in Mexico!

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...
