These Are Better Than I Thought!



Did you ever see the movie, The Jerk, with Steve Martin? One of the most remembered scenes I think for many people is when  Martin ran out of the house yelling and jumping heading down to the mailbox. On his way, he yelled this famous phrase…”the new phonebooks are here, the new phonebooks are here.” He was so excited as he flipped it open to see his name printed in those pages!

Yesterday was my “the new phonebooks are here” kinda day!

My custom order had arrived. The order even came a week earlier than expected, so when the UPS guy yelled into the kitchen window as he left my package on the porch, I couldn’t figure out what was delivered. My hubby went to the door to get the package and laughed as he said your Tickled Pink Converse are here! Oh yeah, I dropped what I was doing and came to look immediately!

As I eagerly opened the box, I was so pleasantly surprised. I thought where I had the shoes custom signed with my name would be stamped on the side of the right shoe. When I pulled the first shoe out of the box and realized it was actually embroidered – well, let’s just say Pharrell’s song, “Happy” came to mind! I was most certainly “HAPPY”!!!!!

I immediately put them on! And if you knew me, I never do anything like that. Seriously. I will buy a new item of clothing, shoes or even a new sewing machine. I won’t wear or use the item for a while. Actually, not until my husband asks why I’m not using the new thing! But this time, I put them on and began snapping pictures! I took the one above —

And then this one…

And lastly, this one…


My hubby just kept smiling watching me be so excited about my new shoes! What can I say – I was just…(here it comes) so “Tickled Pink” with my new Converse.

I usually don’t have such a positive experience when I order things. I for sure have not had something arrive that was better than what I thought it/they would be. It was truly a Tickled Pink kinda day!!!

Talk back to me…have you ever ordered something and it arrived even better than you thought? Share your experience with us below! I’d love to hear your story!

Can You Really Laugh Through All Things?

I believe the answer to that question is YES!
Most definitely, Yes!

If you’re missing me this week, have no fear, I’m still here in cyberspace!  It’s just that I’m visiting someone else’s blog on the west coast!  Too bad I didn’t get to fly out to write and post, huh?!
I’m posting on a blog that happens to be one that I follow regularly. I met Laurie at my She Speaks conference last July and she is such a sweet lady.  Her gentle temperment is admirable and her sweet smile is infectious! She’s a life coach who loves seeing people become confident in who they are and who God intended them to be.  Maybe she could help me!  Or you, if you’re in that spot in life.
Anyway, please come on over to Laurie’s blog and visit us by clicking here:  Living Power Life Coaching.  I’d love to hear what you have to say about my post today, so please pop back over here and leave me a message!
It’s such a gorgeous 72* weather here in Northeast Ohio it’s just making me “Tickled Pink.”  I hope the weather is beautiful where you are, too.  
Whether or not it’s nice out where you are, I dare you to find a reason to laugh today.  Your oblique muscles (stomach/side) are begging to be used today!  You wanna talk about some ab crunches – get your giggle on baby, tell me that doesn’t make those obliques tighten up!  Dare ya!
…and that’s all I have to say about that!
