The Day of My Dreams

Well… it’s 1:09 a.m. and I guess one of the only perks to being up this late and having cable is watching the travel channel… and they are showing hot air balloon vacations in scotland. Though that sounds tempting, that’s a little out of my student budget. But, also, as you all know from my Bucket List (click on link), I want to go up an hot air balloon. Bad. Anyway… whilst watching the Travel Channel, I’ve decided that riding in one would be part of my idea of a perfect day. So… with that said. Here’s an hour by hour play by play of what the best day ever would look like for me. Ready?! 🙂

9 a.m. – Wake up, get ready, and get some breakfast… ok.. [pancakes] with whomever accompanies me (preferably a male significant other/boyfriend/husband). 🙂

10 a.m. – Start a mini-road trip to the mountains to prepare for later festivities, and while we’re in the car, play the license plate game.

11 a.m. – Sing Shania Twain for an hour… every road trip needs “Man I Feel Like a Woman”. Come on now. Ok.. maybe not the whole hour.

12 p.m. – Stop somewhere cool to eat a picnic lunch complete with capri sun, lays tater chips and pb & j.

1 p.m. – Go to a park and watch the clouds under a shaded tree… and also read, and take a nice nap absent of bees. : )

2 p.m. – Go on a scenic hike that doesn’t kill Kaylee’s lungs, and does not have bears… (I never want to know what it’s like to be forced into the fetal position… just sayin’.)

3:44 p.m. – Stop at the nearest Starbucks for a hit of caffeine… “Can I get a grande Iced Caramel Macchiato please?!”

4:00 p.m. – Play some card games in the back of Liam (my SUV). Go Fish. War. Texas Hold ‘Em.

5:00 p.m. – Eat dinner. Preferably mexican. Could even be Taco Bell… I’m not picky.

6:00 p.m. – Drive to a place where there are hot air balloons EVERYWHERE. Floating and waiting to be lifted into the air. To which, person I’m with says “Kaylee… take your pick”.

6:44 p.m.: We hop in hot air balloon, as the sun is preparing to set against the mountains, rise into the air, and become amazed by God’s amazing imagination and world.

8:00 p.m.: After feeling exhilarated from said Hot Air Balloon ride… we go for ice cream. Cookie Dough. No exceptions.

9:00 p.m.: As if we aren’t already on a high from the ballooning and the sugar, we have smores around a campfire and talk about life.

10:00 p.m.: Get home, and play a board game like Clue that takes forever… while a good playlist is playing in the background. Also, it was Professor Plum. Revolver. Kitchen.

11:00 p.m.: We get another cup of coffee… and sit next to the fireplace and talk about what a great day we had.

12:00 a.m.: Fall asleep to a premade playlist that includes songs by Bon Iver and Fink.

The End. : )

So maybe this is ideal for now… i wouldn’t mind winning the lottery, and having the perfect flip-flop tan line.. but this sounds pretty good to me!
