Stacey’s house

December 15, 2007

My visit with Stacey (and Cat!) was so much fun!  It was also pretty relaxing…which was needed considering I found out (after I got there) that my surgery was cancelled!  Grrrrrr….  I told my husband, ‘I’m too irritated to go home so let’s just stay here and have a mini vacation’.

Stacey and John are hands-down the most generous hosts I’ve ever encountered.  And I’m a missionary kid so I’ve been to TONS of people’s homes….even her kids were kind enough to let us bunk in their rooms.  It was one of those homes that you feel completely comfortable going in the kitchen and helping yourself to whatever.  They definitely have the gift of hospitality.  I would’ve been a wreck had roles been reversed.

From the moment she opened up her front door, she talked to me like she’s known me her whole life and didn’t stop all weekend!  Come to find out she talks a lot when she gets nervous!  Isn’t that a hoot?  She’s a smooth talker too.  Some how I got wrangled into helping her work at her church for a little bit and was completely oblivious to it until it was all over.  She’s that gooooooood!

Cat, her husband Jeff and her youngest actually wanted to do stuff with us too, so that was totally cool getting to know her as well.  Cat’s a little bit of a wild girl (oh yes you are!!) and Stacey kept trying to keep her in line, so I was constantly entertained.

We ended up going to see Santa Friday night.  The funniest side to this was trying to keep my 2 boys from spilling the beans about Santa to Stacey’s son.  My 2 guys are a bunch of fuddy-duddies and never bought the whole Santa story.  Thankfully they think it’s great fun to play along.

Here are Alex, OldMan, and Brandon playing on the Crayola playset while waiting for Santa:

I love this picture of Stacey doing what Stacey does best!:

This of course is my very favorite:

We ended up talking about everything under the moon and then some.  We’ve sworn on our friendship without involving spit or blood and I’m pretty sure I’ve met a life long friend.

The day has come

December 6, 2007

I can’t believe that I will be sleeping in Stacey’s house tonight!!!!  I’m leaving here in a bit to head on up north.  Not only is she letting me stay with her, but also my whole fam damily!  Yes.  She is that crazy.

I can’t wait to get the whole low down on the real Gidget.  I mean, we met at Silver Dollar City, but geez…it was like speed dating.  Without the dating.  I also get to meet Cat for the first time.  She’s totally slacking on the blogging thing, but she’s got a real job…so there ya go.  Plus I hear she’s skinny…so taking her out….

Not only do I get to interrogate spend hours with Stacey, but I also get to have my head in Dr. January’s lap!

…while a machine gun is shooting God-knows-what at my eyeballs!

Lasik…is it really worth the lap “job”?  I’ll let you know on Monday!

Picture tag

September 25, 2007

I can always count on Stacey to hit tag me!  This is kinda cool except my camera won’t cooperate (grrrr!). 

I’m suppose to take a photo outside of the window I usually blog from (yes, yes…I shouldn’t end with from).  Weeeeelllll, that window is behind me, so I don’t get to look out of it while blogging (short attention span….I’d stare instead of type).  Even though my camera is acting like a 2 year old, I did find this photo:

I took this last spring while in the middle of a downpour.  If you look really hard, you can just make out an Ark in the background.

I want to tag Cat and Misty Dawn.  Cat, you’re looking for something to blog about…here ya go!  And Misty Dawn, like don’t you ever take photos??? (hee, hee…she is the photo queen!)
