Post Script

PS, here's our van:


Sunday, October 24, 2010


More of a "Snapshot Weekend" than a Sunday, but let's not get too technical.

Saturday morning/early afteroon. Autumn prancing.

Part II. I'm always so awkward.

Saturday evening. Booboo learned "On the Bus Mall" for me, which is really very perfect and sweet. Then we went to see Waiting for Superman at midnight, which was depressing and certainly worth your $10.

After the movie we went to sleep and woke up and Jared declared that he hates Snapshot Sunday because I harass his entire life with my camera. I actually do this every day anyway, so I'm not sure why he isn't used to it by now.

We went to Mel's diner which had good reviews but was not good in real life. On the bright side, bad breakfast places with steady patronage make me realize I could probably open up my own breakfast/brunch restaurant and do OK, which thrills me to no end.

Then I went to work and did absolutely nothing except order the boys to grab me grenadine and Sprite from the aisles.

I later used them in a Shirley Temple. Deeeeeeeeeeeelish.

Paper to pen

Today I asked Don if any of our bikes were working. He put air in the tires for me. What a peach!

I think Don was getting a little nostalgic, because when I asked him "wait, how do I do this again?" he told me "pedal fast!" and started to tear up. And then I started to cry. Because I remember him teaching me how to ride a bike; it took me forever, but I'll never forget how it felt when I finally succeeded.

This was when I still needed training wheels. I think they should make adult bikes with training wheels, because I need one very much. They probably do make them, but I'm too afraid to Google image it. PS I wish I still had this outfit.

Note to self: just because you bring your camera everywhere does not mean you should bring it on a bike ride. Attempting to take a picture of a random tree will result in you veering off the road and almost crashing into a fence, resulting in this picture.

I've been up since 4:27am doing homework.

It is now 6:17. I give up and go downstairs to make an English muffin, wearing Betty Boop PJ pants, a really awkward tank top, and a tiny bun on the top of my head. I reach the last step and my mother yells from the top of the stairs "WE HAVE A VISITOR!"

I run back up the stairs, where she is almost on the floor, laughing hysterically.
"What do you mean we have a visitor?! WHO IS VISITING AT FIVE IN THE MORNING?!"
She isn't breathing for a solid 5 minutes because she thinks this is the most hilarious thing that has ever happened to her.
She continues to laugh as she locks herself in the bathroom.
I stick my head in my closet and try not to laugh, but now I'm cracking up even though I'm not sure what is so fucking funny.

I still don't know what she means, but there's apparently a visitor.
I don't know why, who, or how.

This is a highly cruel, unjust world.

Oh HELL no!

EXCUSE ME, but how did I not know about this until now?!

The white mini one is obviously cuter, but it only prints out credit card sized photos. Check out this bundle on Amazon. SWEET. Too bad my credit card bill is at $1000 right now. :(

You contacted me out of nowhere and asked me if we could go clothes shopping because you liked what I bought last year and now you need some help.

We both want very similar things. You thought I was perfect. You wanted to spend every second with me. I won't lie and say it isn't appealing. I started to panic because, for a moment, I considered dropping everything and running back to you.

But then I realized I would rather spend the rest of my life, financially unstable and living in my parent's house, if it meant that I could have the boy who finishes Katy Perry lyrics for me and still manages to make my heart skip a beat whenever he kisses me.

Snapshot Sunday/Monday

I woke up Sunday morning and made everyone cinnamon waffles & home fries.

Then I caught up on Teen Mom. Amber is out of control.

I had to work, which ruined my entire life. My thumbs down was cut off. Woops.

On the bright side, the trees are starting to turn on my work route!

After I got out of work, I was excited to go home and squeeze Jared. But he surprised me and was waiting for me in the parking lot as soon as I got out. He brought me presents. Isn't he the cutest?

Then we slept and woke up and went to breakfast with Gina & CJ and it was really bad, so please never drive by "Simply Simon's" and think it's a good idea to eat there. ANYWAY, after breakfast we went to Phantom Farms and I made Jared stick his head in this thing.

The website makes it seem like it's this glorious field of pick your own apples & pumpkins, but it wasn't. There were approximately 2 trees and both were barren. There were, however, previously picked apples & pumpkins in the store. But they were $900/each, and I was SO MAD.

Appleless & pumpkinless, we went home. But we did buy apple cider, candy apples, chai lip balm, homemade oreo ice cream, and random goo sticks. We're still not entirely sure what the goo sticks are supposed to be (I just grabbed them because they looked pretty without reading the sign), but Jared has an elaborate theory that you're supposed to add them to sparkling water and make your own soda. We just sucked them straight out of the tube. Hopefully we don't die.

The apple cider was very very delicious.

Then we cuddled forever and played photoshoot.

I'm insane.

Dawwww. Aren't we sickening?

Then we went to Olive Garden even though we weren't hungry and had delicious breadsticks and died because we couldn't breathe or walk or live. And then we saw The Social Network which was not good at all, and I wish Waiting for Superman was playing around here because we totally would have seen that instead.

The end.

Snapshot Sunday

Saturday was my wonderful boyfriend's 24th birthday. So I went over to celebrate, and little Lilly was there! Is she not the most perfect thing you've ever seen?

Abby was also there, except she was very sad because her father is hunting in Ohio and she misses him. We sat by the fire all night. And then I made Jared go to Taco Bell so I could try a chicken flatbread sandwich. Please do yourself a favor and NEVER buy one. It was possibly the grossest thing I've ever consumed.

Here's the "Happy Birthday" performance/Jared being mad at me for taking a video.

I slept over, and then the next morning, which is today, which is Sunday...we went to Shawmut Diner for breakfast. My waffle was good but my home fries were not. This is Jared gasping at something rude I said and/or did, which is a constant occurrence in our relationship. PS- isn't he so cute in his new shirt that I bought him?

For unknown reasons, we needed to get slush puppies from somewhere, but they apparently don't exist so we had to settle for a slush thingy from Cumby's. ANYWAY, Cumby's = gas station = scratch tickets = my obsession = I had $4 = I bought 2 cashwords & won $5!

Then I went home and checked to see if the grades were posted from my English class. I saw this announcement and was like "Mmmm yup, I definitely bombed this assignment."

But then I clicked on the A papers and saw my name. And died. Because before I actually wrote the paragraph, I spent 2 hours writing about how I couldn't possibly write the paragraph because I really really didn't want to write it.

After dying, I took the most glorious nap. It was such a perfect nap day.

Then I went to work and was very excited to see that the calendar was flipped to October, which, as everybody knows, is the best month of the year.

After work I stopped by Kelli & Ed's to work out the hours/rates for babysitting little Izabelle. And then I went home and made the most delicious garlic bread I've ever tasted. Nomnomnomnom.

Time to watch Freakonomics and sleep forever. See ya!
