i like my aunts, i like my allisons.

I am obsessed.
and want to do this every day. . .

for the rest of my life.


found via rachel (she's a favorite).

FACT.

When I was in college I had bleh days ALOT.

fat days.
boys suck days.
got a c days.
pms days. . .
and 4 billion etcs.

I REFUSED to lean into feeling like crap.

SO.

I invented the bathroom dance.

I would lock myself in a bathroom stall (in the GCB for you BYUHers)
and sing "I'm Walking on Sunshine" in my head. . .
at the TOP of my lungs (my uh, head lungs?)
and dance like a lunatic.

flailing arms a serious must.

try it.

FOR REAL.

the BEST and a TOTAL cure all.

Ashleigh said...

The GCB stalls seem small for arm flailing, but I will definitely try it in my full-sized bathroom tomorrow morning. Thanks for sharing, I totally reposted the video on my blog. Everyone should see it :) Thanks for sharing! xo

I wish I could write something witty but I'm too busy laughing. Thanks!

Love it! And for the record, I have "blah" days all the time. In fact, my father-in-law and I say it's a real diagnosis. ;) It drives my mother-in-law, a registered nurse and manager of the ICU & PCU units, crazy. "There's no such sickness as the blahs," she says. But my FIL and I beg to differ. :) So now, when I have the blahs, I'm going to have to try the dancing thing - I like that idea. A lot! Thanks for sharing! ;)

What a positive influence on my day :)

The Tesimales said...

Oh my gosh I love the video. She is so cute. Just a thought... having that song on your i Pod and blasting it in your ears could help. Not sure though singing it at the top of your lungs in your head does sound awesome. I just don't think I would be able to contain myself. Then again, it's not often I am able to contain myself. I'm gonna try it.

Elizabeth said...

So great! My song is Island in the Sun. I can't be down after belting that out and dancing around.

Babs said...

The sweet spirit of little ones...

Loved it!

Thank you! From the top of my lungs!

Ally said...

That video is fantastic...I would like to hang out with that mom. What a great kid! ;)

I've seen you dance in person and it's awesome. I can only imagine you going all out in the privacy of a bathroom stall! But, put you and richie dancing together and it's pretty much the cutest couple moment I've ever seen.

Sarah Garner said...

Absolutely LOVE the idea. I am going to have to try that - I've had a few too many "blah" days lately.

Bekah said...

I am a BYU student and LOVE this! I'm going to carry this tradition on as soon as one of those many "bleh" days come!
