Phone call #1: The first call was from my mom, who is always hilarious so I expected to be entertained. She is such a joker and was saying that she was sorry for what happened yesterday and has to limit her pranks to "daytime only". In order to understand what made this call so great let me rewind to 9:50pm last night....
I called my mom on my way home from school around 9:30pm and got the shock of my life from the other end of the phone! I could hear the excitement in her voice from the moment she answered and immediately after saying hello she told me that she got engaged! MY MOM...ENGAGED! Oh heck noooo!! I can't even tell you how many times I asked her over and over if it was true but she kept insisting that her longtime missionary friend, who is overseas at the moment, sent her the ring in the mail. She then told me that he always said he would propose that way and she is most definitely going to say "yes".
So of course I abruptly hung up and speed dialed my hubster so he could calm me down and bring me back to reality. 2 minutes later, at 9:50pm, I'm meeting her at the end of her street so she can show me her bling. I am one of the most curious people I know so there was no way I would be waiting til the next day to see her diamond! She even told me she forgot the letter at home but would show it to me the next day. So there I am, comparing her "diamond" to mine to see if it is legit and I actually believed her! Then she lets me hold the ring, which is as light as a feather, and starts laughing...HARD! Apparently she found the ring on the side of the road when walking the dogs and decided to pull one of the greatest pranks ever on me at almost 10pm when I have not been home all day. Nice, mom, very nice. But I love her and am grateful that she goes out of the way to keep me on my toes. Thankfully, she promised to limit this to daytime only so I am very pleased now :)
|me and my prankster mom|
|me and my world-traveling dad|
Asha: "so someone is going to see their mommy this weekend!"
Daniel: "yea, I'm gonna spend time with my dad and grandma too"
A: "remember when your grandma used to always make you those steak things?"
D: "yea, breaded steak. It was so good and then I discovered chicken parmesan!"
A: "I remember when I had it for the 1st time! I was 13 at Olive Garden"
D: "Wow you were missing out! That stuff is like from heaven!...Oh nevermind, it can't be. That many calories can only be from hell!"
And then we had to get off the phone. I love that guy so much! Even after almost 5 years together we are still learning new things about each other :)
... to get motivation to run every time I see the top shelf of the closet that is filled with jeans that no longer fit
... to go to the mall on a friday night with the hubs to "relive" our high school days
... to feel like the year is flying by so quick that everything feels out of my control
... to eat PB & J for breakfast EVERY morning no matter how many other yummy things there are in the house
... to get impatient because I want so much more from life than where I am right now
... to lay out in the backyard and be just as amazed by the stars as when I was a kid
... to be in disbelief of how random I am after looking at this list I created :)
