It's been so long, that I suppose it's time for a little gratitude!
Today I am grateful for a sweetie pie who won't just take a normal picture.
It has been surprising to me because I always thought I'd be the opposite of this, but I've kind of discovered that I prefer that our mush be kept just between the two of us. Obviously we got married because we love each other and think that the other is great, so I don't feel the need to enumerate why he is awesome. Besides, I've started feeling like it's more special when it's just ours. But he is a sweetie.
I'm also grateful for the TWO (count 'em, baby!) close friends who are coming to visit this weekend from out of state, and especially for the extended time I get to spend with each of them individually. I haven't seen this lovely lady in almost 3 years:
Hey, Jen! Is that picture of us not embarrassing enough? Well how about....
Okay, this one is actually just more embarrassing for me. Seriously what is wrong with my face? It's like that banana has already caused some constipation. (It's my blog and I can say "constipation" if I want to.) Well, at least no one can say I don't emote when I perform!
And this one I last saw at my wedding so couldn't spend a lot of time with her, and hadn't seen her for like a year before that:
She has learned Chinese, served a mission, gotten married, and had two babies since then. She doesn't mess around, folks.
I am bummed that I don't have the picture of Jewel-io that I was looking for right now, and only have this cute one of her singin' her pretty little heart out. You got off lucky, Jewel! (You may want to avoid me holding a camera this weekend, because I probably cannot be trusted. Just ask Jen.)
I'll be honest, I don't really have friends in Utah, so the opportunity to spend girl time with such lovely women is about to blow my mind. They are both awwwwesome. Don't be jeal. (And if you are in Utah, then we are probably friends, but not the type of friends who ever talk or do anything. And if you are offended, then maybe you should call me and we will be the other type of friends!)
Aaaaaand, that is all I've got for now. I hope you have awesome people in YOUR life for whom to be grateful. And also that they don't post embarrassing pictures of you on teh internets. (Maybe that is why I have no Utah friends?)
