Do Y'all Know?

Oh hey there.

How's it going?

I just got back from a really great trip to Oregon. It involved an almost all-nighter with a childhood friend. The kind of friend that is like a comfy warm blanket on a cold day. We always pick up right where we left off, and she is always just what I need.

Some driving and flying.

Meeting lots of new people.

Eating delicious food.

Figuring out who I am when no one is calling me mom and not one single person needs me to cut their waffle. And I didn't have to fight with anybody about why it's better for me to pour the syrup.

Entirely too late of nights.

Beautiful Oregon coast.

Laughing so hard my face hurt.

Singing badly. Which is the only way I know how to sing.

And lots of other very enjoyable things.

I'm exhausted. I haven't pulled an all-nighter since probably college and I pretty much just had 2 on this trip.

I came home to my wonderful husband, and even though I had an amazing time, I missed him immensely. A banged up Bo "I fell, then Wyan twipped, then I twipped ha-doe". Basically he stumbled, which in turn tripped his friend, who consequently smashed him into the sidewalk. I just enjoyed his interpretation.

Avery hugged me for a really long time. And then bugged me for "sour candy green kind" the rest of the night.

My darling niece who flew here last night and then babysat the kids all day today until I got home at 5:30. It's a great feeling knowing your kids are in completely capable hands. She's a superstar.

And my sweet sweet baby who looked me up and down and made a wide circle around me, only to beeline to his dad. If it wasn't so funny, it would be sad.

My husband is channeling Kip right now. So I better get off the computer and channel LaFawnduh. However a whiter than white redhead does that...

Don't worry, I'm sure there's a babe out there for you too. Peace out

I'm a little disappointed that Elastic or NCS didn't ask you to cut their waffles.

I was coming here to comment: "Do y'all know?" and then I saw your great title. :)

I'm disappointed that as the blog party ho I did not get to sleep with you. Next time...

I ♥ Nobody.

I would have let you cut my waffle for me.
Thanks for the late night wrong number call...it made my day! Made me feel like I was still a little part of the blog party on Sunday...
Not spending more time getting to know you is one of my blog party regrets...maybe we will meet again some day!

I forgot about "Do y'all know?". :)

Mamarazzi said...

how fun to have a little trip just for you! i could use an outing like that, it's been too long. i wonder if i would know how to act. i might be inclined to ask complete strangers if i could do their hair.

Lafawnduh...forever!

Tori :) said...

I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. Don't mind me.

Tori :) said...

Did I tell you I miss you??

CoconutKate said...

Glad you are home cutting waffles again. :))))) Yeah waffles!

Sketchy said...

I would like some sour candy green kind as long as you're up anyway.

Klin said...

I laughed out loud and startled my sleeping husband when I read your post title.

You are so fun. I am so glad that I got to meet you. I will try to not be too tired next time. I missed telling you g'bye.

Hope to see you soon.

Amanda said...

Awwww, I'm missing you and your great laugh and your fun personality and your "air on air experiments" and....!!! It was so fun to meet you and spend time with you! I loved it! How great to finally get to meet nobody! :)

794.7 miles really isn't that far. Maybe we could meet in the middle!

Lauren said...

I am glad you had a fun time! It sounds like a blast!

Watch out for Aubreys' fist.

omar said...

Sorry, typo in that last comment. There's only one Aubrey who is about to punch you. Aubrey's fist.
