"Sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows..."
Have you ever had the most random song stuck in your head? This one has been stuck in mine for the last few days. My guess is that it was inspired by my visit to the sunshine state over the weekend; the sun was indeed shining, and I was in a very celebratory mood.
I arrived Friday night just in time for dinner with Beaker Luv and fam. Then it was play time with the kids before bed, after which Beaker Luv and I chatted late into the night. We eventually, reluctantly headed to bed, gosh I miss that girl so much, and woke up early on Saturday to run some errands before Rixy's bachelor/bachelorette party was to begin. The bridal party and I all met at their hotel and we spent a few hours catching up, playing hilarious games, and preparing for the night ahead; we dressed the bride and groom in fun wedding theme'd t-shirts that were concert appropriate.
After dinner at the Ale House, where libations were had, more games were played, and food was consumed, we headed over to Downtown Disney to hit up the Dropkick Murphys show at the House of Blues. If you've never heard of them, they are a very loud, energetic, Boston-based, Irish-born, American Celtic punk band that really know how to put on a show. We missed the opening act, but arrived just in time to catch the second opener, Old Man Markley, a punk bluegrass band which we all really liked. When DKM came on the place went wild and we spent the next few hours yelling the songs on the tops of our lungs and dancing around like idiots. It was such a blast and our bride and groom thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
|Woe is the life of the short girl.|
Can't see a damn thing.
Back in Michigan today, as I set out for an easy paced 6 miler, the verse popped back in to my head as the sun was actually shining, but then I started hitting large patches of snow-turned-ice sidewalk and proceeded to mutter curse words as I rolled my ankles a dozen or so times throughout the rest of the run on more of the same. It's sooooooo good to be home. *Grumble*
Doesn't that look fun?
