Filled to the brim

As full as possible; also, completely satisfied. For example, We’re filled to the brim with excitement. This expression transfers the idea of a container filled to the very top. W.S. Gilbert used it in the comic opera The Mikado (1885): “Three little maids from school are we, Filled to the brim with girlish glee.” [ c. 1600 ]
