Right now, it sounds like summer right now. My cul-de-sac has about 8 children running around, riding bikes and playing. And it's January. There is something fishy going on with this warm winter weather. Like it's the second coming or something. Everyday for the last month and a half (I AM NOT EXAGGERATING), I have woken up and checked the upcoming weather on my phone, always hoping for a blizzard. And I have been shut down each time. So sue me, I like snow.
I think it was Carina that introduced me to one of their family rules. "If someone invites you to go to Hawaii for free, you have to go." We are currently keeping that family rule. Ethan just landed in Maui. Or would I say ON Maui? I dunno. Either way, in or on, he is there. And I am not a bit bitter. I wanted him to go from the beginning. He is a hardworking man and he deserves some downtime on a tropical golf course in the sunshine.
Oh! By the way!!! My sister Haley had her baby! Claire Katherine Hall! And I deCLAIRE, she is the sweetest little thing I have held in a long time. I was the lucky one to get a phone call at 1:45 am from my sister who was laughing about her water breaking 9 days early. I climbed out of bed, put on shoes and didn't put on a bra and I drove over to her house to sit with her sleeping first born while her and her husband went to the hospital. As I drove over there, I couldn't stop smiling. These are the best moments of life. Driving down a deserted freeway in the middle of the night because I get a new niece. Life is good.
In closing, I need to get something off my chest. This has always been an issue, but lately, I just can't take it anymore. I cannot be silent. You need to know something. TOMS ARE ACTUALLY THE UGLIEST SHOES EVER. Phew! I said it! I don't care if they are comfortable or if free shoes are given to shoeless children if buy Toms. None of that makes them cute. It also doesn't make them cute if everyone around you wears them.
Okay, I am done now. Thanks for reading.
