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.
