in her shoes - a feature with laugh until your cheeks hurt

hello again lovelies!  as promised here is a day in the shoes of shalyn of laugh until your cheeks hurt ♥ take it away shay!!

Hi all, nice ta meetcha! My name is Shalyn from Laugh Until Your Cheeks Hurt, a little blog coming at you from the good ole' Southwestern state of Arizona.

Thanks so much to Lindsay for letting me steal some space on her spectacular blog! So sorry in advance that this post is going to pale massively in comparison to anything she has ever typed - you have been warned :-)

“A Day in my Flip Flops” err...shoes

What motivates you to get your day started?

I usually really have to use the restroom early in the morning, so not peeing the bed is pretty darn motivating! I am also in school to become a Dental Hygienist; a career I have been working towards since high school so getting that degree and educating people on oral health motivates me tremendously! Sorry to sound like Mr. Rogers, but it’s the truth! Floss yo teeth!

What part of your day do you most look forward to and why?

Breakfast (we just got a waffle maker- holy awesomeness!) and right before bed when my husband and I are slaphappy and everything is funny, even our dogs flatulence. It takes A LOT for that putrid smell to be funny!

What do you like most about where you live?

When I drive around with the windows down, it smells SO good outside. I know that sounds incredibly weird, but when I lived in Washington State it did NOT smell like this! Also, we live on the same street as 3 other super awesome couples, two of which the husbands were my husbands’ best friends in high school! (Did that make sense? - email me for a diagram)

What part of your day is the most difficult and what do you do to overcome that?

I am a pretty lucky lady, so I hate to complain about having a difficult day when I know I am so blessed compared to a lot of people. Right now the hardest thing I have to endure on a day-to-day basis is 12-hour days at school and keeping up on my school work, which I combat with some good jokes and lots of diet Dr. Pepper.

What do you love most about yourself today?

This would usually be a hard one for me, but thanks to Lindsay’s beautiful post on loving yourself, I shall really answer- I love that even after being sick on and off for an entire month, I can still laugh and joke with my husband about silly things like being pregnant since I am sick so much (I’m totally not- don't be spreading any rumors!;-)) Also, today was a good eyelash day. I never have good hair days, so I have to celebrate something!

Hope you all get to laugh a lot today, thanks again Lindsay!
