Best day ever?

Oh you wanna know the best day ever?
Hey lovers, it’s Monday which typically is my least favorite day. Why? Well it’s Monday. Plus that means a busy day at work which means not enough time to blog stalk… I mean…. Eh whatever. Anyway its day 9 of the 15 day challenge! This little ole’ challenge has turned out to be way more than an easy wTay to choose what to blog about every day… I kid that’s not why I did it… well not completely! I infact have learned that Sar the host of this little challenge and I are from the same town and have a ton of the same friends… pretty ridic. Also I have had to actually do some self-evaluation. Kinda good? Not to mention I have found a ridic amount of awesome blogs to stalk, btw I suck at blog commenting because I do the majority of stalking at work and apparently my company doesn’t think that I should be commenting on your blogs on the clock, they block that ish!! How dare them!  Anyway, on to the challenge eh?
{Day 9} Describe the best day of your life to date.

Well seeing how I just looooove to live life this was rather difficult… I mean the best day ever? I could talk about my week long trips to the lake each summer, perhaps my first visit to Disney Land? Maybe the day I fell in love with Harry Potter? The births of my nieces and nephews, trips to Texas, Vegas trips with my besties, wine tasting in Chelan, the day I became an Alpha Phi… Yeah I just rubbed that all up in your faces… do you still love me? I hope so… but the best day ever? Is there really just one? C’mon!
So I am doing a top 3 best days ever. Because I can.
{1} The day my divorce was finalized. Yes this sounds so awful I know, but a weight was lifted off of me. It didn’t take long because we both filed jointly; it was something we decided on together. While it was difficult and embarrassing and painful all at the same time it was also the biggest relief to know I could finally just move on from that part of my life. I called it D-Day for so long and didn’t have the guts to actually go to court I was too nervous and too emotional but when I received a text from my now ex that said you are officially Ashley Mitchell again I had the biggest most ridiculous sigh of relief. It was done. It was over; it was time to move forward.

{2} The day I met each of my nieces and nephews. Granted technically this is 4 days but you know what I mean. What a wonderful gift each of them has been to me.  I endured 30 something hours at the hospital when my sister went into labor with Harley (yeah like I am the one who endured haha) I remember holding her for the first time and being in such awe even though she looked like a weirdo with a cone head and one eye swollen shut, not her finest moment but she made a great come back! Then there was Avrey, I worked all day the day she was born and I called every 30 minutes but was promptly at the hospital with gifts in hand after she was born, little did we know what a little hell on wheels she would be; yet I just can’t help but love her. My sweet, sweet Gavin; while I did not have the pleasure of having him enter my life until after he was over a year old I could not imagine a life without him. He is the sweetest little boy and I swear he has the bluest eyes in the world. Then came a moment I will never forget. The day that put the nail in the coffin so to speak, the day I actually witnessed a baby being born. Watching my little wolverine Hudson be born was without a doubt the most amazing thing in the world however watching my sweet sister give birth was horrifying. While I would not trade those moments for anything I know without a doubt that child birth is mortifying and anyone who has done it is a saint.

{3} Today July 9th in fact is making it on the record books. Today I received an e-mail offering me a new position with the company I work for, Buh BYE call center! BOOOM! And along with that new position came a little something I like to call a raise! So right about now I am feeling pretty good about things! Thank you life for taking a turn for happy town!

So there ya have it Nuggets my top 3/7 days of my life. Jealous much? Love ya!
