living the dream
Leading an extremely ideal life, especially in relation to one's career. (Sometimes said ironically to mean the opposite.) Daniel: "John got a great new job testing video games, and he gets to travel to gaming conventions all over the world!" Janet: "Wow, it sounds like he's living the dream!" The only job I could get with my bachelor's degree was some mind-numbing data entry work. I'm really living the dream these days.
