Good Morning Blogger Friends!

Can we have a moment of silence?


Why?

Because The Mister, who is a man of great wisdom but of very few words, COMMENTED on yesterdays post!!!!

I almost fell off my chair this morning. 

I love him so much. 

Do y'all get tired of hearing me write that? 

Too bad. It's the honest truth. 

And let me tell you something funny. For as much as I talk about him and our relationship and blah, blah, blah. Our marriage is as real as yours is (if you happen to be married).

 For instance, on Tuesday night, around 1am I came home from having dinner with a friend (I'll explain in detail in a second) and crawled in bed. The Mister was still somewhat awake, he had been waiting to make sure I had arrived at home (he's a worrier about my driving late at night). 

Anyway, I snuggled up in bed, laid my arm over his manly shoulders and whispered into his ear, "Happy Anniversary, honey. Uh, please tell me you didn't buy me anything."

To which he sleepily answered, "Um, no, I didn't. Is that OK?"

Sometimes this is a trick

Sometimes the subtext of his 'no', really means, I bought you a diamond watch (which I lost), or pearl earrings (also lost), or my BFF a Kitchen Aide Mixer (at 25#s, is certain to never get lost).

So I re-asked the question, Are you sure that you did not purchase anything with which you will surprise me with, and make me feel horrible tomorrow? Because I didn't buy anything- nada, zip, zero, nothing. Oh, and your "card" will be posted on the blog.

There's nothing like a blog post written for all to see that says I care to send the very best.

We really didn't get each other anything. No worry, no shame. 

His comment on the blog was the perfect card or gift.

Have I mentioned how much I adore him?

All right, I'm finished. Moving on...

I had lunch with the Carpoolqueen yesterday. She is so much fun. I have been a bit sleep deprived since my trip to Texas, so I was moving very  s--l--o--w.  My body and mind just refused to hustle. I just kind of floated through the kitchen as if we had all day to eat our lunch. 

She was gracious, and we had the nicest, leisurely, lunch...can't wait to do it again.

Speaking of friends that I love...
I got to see one of my favorite people(s?) on the planet. (That sentence is horrible, but I'm, gonna go with it.)

Cheryl and I met 12 years ago while our husbands attended graduate school. We had our first babies together, and she was instrumental to my spiritual growth when I was a young Christian. 

To say I love her is an understatement, but I don't know how to say it any other way.

We had a yummy dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, took a quick trip to Sephora, went back to her hotel at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, and talked until 11:40pm (although i could have talked with her until next Wednesday with out running out of things to say.)

I purposely pulled myself away to get home before midnight...

...because nothing good happens after midnight. 

I then began the thirty minute drive back home, but got lost and ended up driving for almost an hour. 

Hence the crawling into bed at 1:00 a.m.

It has been a full, and wonderful week thus far. 

Today I must try to get the last bit of schooling done with the kiddos. As of tomorrow SCHOOL IS OUT!!!!!!!!

Happy Thursday!

"Sometimes the subtext of his 'no', really means, I bought you a diamond watch (which I lost), or pearl earrings (also lost), or my BFF a Kitchen Aide Mixer (at 25#s, is certain to never get lost)."......This sentence right here? I could have written it myself. I've actually told him to please not give me anything of value, especially jewelry, because I will lose or break it. I have not lost or broken my KA mixer.

How sweet of The Mister to take part in your blogging and appreciate your respectful words.

On another note, I'm glad I'm not the only one who loses all of my jewelry...and we haven't even moved!

And did you grandma tell you that line about nothing good after midnight? Mine did:)

Oh, I love that you lose things, Kellie. Because I do, too. And I have Kitchen Aid. Bought for a first anniversary present almost 18 years ago by my mom. I haven't lost it either. But diamond earrings, yes. Pearl earrings, yes. Our God is merciful, though, because Doug lost his new (bought since his other one wore thru) platinum wedding band in the bottom of a lake about 5 years ago. And while I was very sad for him that he lost his ring, I was happy for me to have leverage. Because any good marriage has a set of leverage and marital debt/line of credit. :)

I meant to tell you that I followed CPQ's link to your blog, looking for your recipe. :-)

We love homeschooling. I am looking at stuff for next year and trying to get our space organized/arranged.

I went back and read The Mister's comment...and now I have tears in my eyes. SO sweet, Kellie.

Well, you've had so much friend fun this week. I'm in serious need of some time like that...and SOON!

I love it when my dh comments on a post (he is cbdm when he posts) - it does not happen often, but makes my day when he does!

Congrats on your anniversary. We are 17 years married this year - eeek! (I was obviously a child bride!)
