Isn't it pretty?
Now, I'm not sure quite where she got the idea I wear tiaras. It might be from this post. Possibly from this one. Either way, I'm honored that she thinks I deserve one! Thanks so much, Karen! I'll think about who I should pass it along to, and let you know.
Think it will look good with a ponytail and a football jersey?
We spent quite a bit of time at my MIL's house this weekend, and that always guarantees a good time. It also generally guarantees something funny to post about!
My SIL has a new boyfriend. Well, relatively new. He's been around for a couple of months now. We like him. He's good to her, which is always a plus; he seems to enjoy spending time around my kids, which is definitely a big bonus; he's got a well-trained dog, which as all we women know indicates an ability to commit to something since he took the time to train the dog! He's also really funny when he's just not trying to be, which reminds me of my own kids.
We were sitting around the dining room table, playing games as we often do when we get together. This particular night we were playing Battle of the Sexes. This game is always funny when we play. There is a lot of taunting going on between the two sides of the table. Well, we hadn't played with the new boyfriend, yet. Poor guy. We keep throwing him into these situations, with no warning at all. He's keeping up pretty good, though.
However, if you had been sitting at the table with us Friday night, you'd have heard this conversation about the question What does the Something Blue for a wedding signify?
BF: ...*muttering*...something blue, something blue..... I know! Its that thing around your leg... what's that called?
MIL: A ball and chain?
::everyone laughs for a bit::
BF: No, no.... *muttering again*.... maybe its an emotion.... happiness? ::we all interrupt that not EVER have we heard of blue equaling happiness:: ..... Sympathy?
At this point, we all busted into loud, belly clenching, tear inducing laughter!
Me: *after I could talk again*... Yeah, cuz that's what all women want when they get married.... SYMPATHY!
Yeah, we like him. He's going to fit in with us just fine!
Also overheard this weekend? Bug's opinion when reminded to say Thank You when I handed him his plate for dinner:
I don't know why we have to use manners all the time! You're my parents! You KNOW I don't always have them!
