Its "OK" Thursday 10/18

Its Ok Thursdays

"Its OK"

-That I told my daughter that while I was visiting I was going to teach my favorite baby to say "Mimi". She said that if my favorite baby says my name before hers, I will be banished. I think she is serious. I am still going to teach her.

-That my brother in law took my husband and I to dinner Saturday night. I did not get into my car until Monday morning.  He left his take home seafood appetizer in my back seat. He is lucky it wasn't hot or that it hadn't been in there too long. Can you only imagine?

-That I come up with creative ways to have a party/happy hour. This weeks party theme was "I hate frost on the front lawn party".

-That I sat at the salon for 3 hours yesterday. My hair was a mess. Not anymore. I bit the bullet and got long side bangs for something different. So far, so good.

Please excuse the bags under my eyes, they were from too much wine at my "I hate frost on my front lawn party". Next time I will take pictures before, not the morning after.

-That I worked two days this week instead of one. I liked it.

-That my daughter and I went shopping for an "adult" coat for her to wear to work this past weekend.
We stopped in our two story Forever 21 store for fun. When we got in the dressing room to try things on, my daughter said "Mom, where is the charm on your necklace?" It was my monogram necklace I had gotten for my birthday. I was panicked. We spent an hour and a half looking through every nook and cranny of the store. We had been in every section of the store. I finally texted my husband and said "Can you please look in the garage and the driveway for my charm?" He told me to look in my pants. I thought he was being a smart ass. I replied "What would it be doing in my pants?" So...I lift my shirt and look down. Lo and behold there it was, nestled between my pants button and my belly button. How did he know? Do I now have to admit that my husband is a genius? I was so relieved that I found it!

-That while I was at the hairdressers yesterday, one of the other hairdressers came up to me and said "You look so familiar, I am trying to figure out where I know you from". She went up to the front desk to see my name and she kept looking at me. Ten minutes later she said I know where I know you from. Five years ago, you wheeled me out of the hospital after I had my son. I recognized your voice first. (I used to volunteer at the hospital a few days a week when my kids were in school).
I was absolutely floored that she remembered me! I don't even think I knew what day it was when I left the hospital with my kids, let alone who wheeled me out of the hospital! She has a great memory!
I will say that I used to jump at the chance to wheel out the new mothers and babies. That was one of my favorite jobs to do.

-That the son I never had is taking my daughter to the Patriots/Jets game this weekend and I am jealous. She went and got a stencil of the Patriots logo and I am painting her face. I cant wait to use that stencil for other crafts.
She better just hope that I don't add glue and crystals to her face like I do on my wine glasses.  Nothing is complete without crystals.

-That when I went to answer the phone at work on Monday, a stink bug was on the receiver. I jumped up and screamed like a school girl. I wouldn't go near the desk until my friend came out of her room to kill it for me. She is so good to me. Do you have any idea how ugly stink bugs are?  I had the creepy crawlies all day. There was another stink bug perched on the windowsill in the hallway to the bathroom. I wouldn't go to the bathroom for the rest of the day. I am glad I didn't sneeze or cough on my way home or I would have been in trouble.

-That I cant wait to bring this shirt to my favorite baby. How cute is this? It looks like something I would wear. Twelve more days.

-That my daughter sent me this text message last week when she wanted me to go to trivia night with her and my brother in law. She is a funny kid. I am waiting for her text today asking me to go again.

-That today is going to be my first day staying in this week. I will be baking and crafting and not getting out of my pajamas. I am looking forward to it. Two day work weeks are a killer.

Have a great Thursday!
