We’re Home!

We had a fantastic time on Paradise Island–so much fun! The island was beautiful, the accommodations were lovely and the rest and relaxation was much needed. We walked along the beach, built sand castles, laid out in the sun, ate and drank lots (too much, actually) and just enjoyed being together.

The resort we stayed at, Club Med, is a French company. All the signs and announcements were both in French and English. It was great!

I’d write more–but very swamped at work.

More later!

Only 19 hours…

Until FK and I are boarding a plane to sunny Paradise Island! HURRAH!! I’m quite excited–I have been checking out the Club Med website and found that the resort is a series of old historic homes and mansions that were turned into a very cool Club Med village. I can’t wait to be sitting on the beach, enjoying the sunshine and relaxing with Frank!! YAY!

Preparing for our trip, we had a few last minute things to pick up. After work, Frank picked me up and we went to the mall. We wandered aimlessly, picked up a few items, ate dinner in the food court and just enjoyed the people watching.

Which brings me to the 15 yr old with her pants down to her knees wearing a thong. Okay, I exaggerate. She was wearing fashionable low rise jeans. And a white thong. I know this because about 4 inches of her thong were exposed. I guess this is the norm.

But then there was the girl that just cut to the chase and wore her red underwear OVER her jeans. That was pretty cunning.

All of this really just means that we are not going to have kids for at least one more year now. On top of how long we were going to wait anyway. Hrmph!

On another note.

Last night Frank was in desperate search for his beloved sandles. He was searching high and low throughout the entire apartment, absolutely focused on finding the old brown birks. Well, after some time, I hear him grumble, “Well, this is what stinks about being married.” My ears perked up.

“Excuse me?” I asked. “What did you just say about being married?”

“Well, see,” he said, “When I was single, I could always find stuff because it was right where I left it. Now, who knows where you put it*.”

“Whatever,” I said dismissively. Then after about 2 seconds of thought, I added, “Check your car.”

Frank’s car is a notorious final resting place for many things. Tupperware. Clothing. Documents of any variety. Which is why I wasn’t surprised to see Frank come back into the house ten minutes later with his arms full of clothing and, of course, his birks. He sheepishly looked at me, holding out 3 pairs of dockers, a dress shirt and two well-loved birks.

“What do you say, Frank?” I demanded (smiling, of course).

“You were right,” he admitted.

Which is how it always is, isn’t it?

That’s what I thought. 🙂

*Portions of the conversation may have been slightly altered. But you get the idea…

SOOOO tired…

I had a pretty restless night’s sleep last night. I’m so tired today. :: Yawn::

I also have to tell you that I was initially a big fan of Mere-D (the bachelorette this season)–but right now–not so much. She’s boring.

Just thought I’d share.

I ate 2 cookies today and a Subway turkey no-cheese sub. Jared says that if I eat subway, everything else is A-OK.

He’s a liar, by the way.

I banged!

For those of you who were wondering about the results of my bang survey–I banged! I love them, too! YAY!

Romantic Things I Long to Hear

I was chit-chatting with my sister, Cait, and goofing around. At one point in the conversation she said, “You know, Emily, you really make me want to scratch my eyes.”

Do you know how long I have waited to hear those words?? I assure you–far too long!

A Week in the Life

Sunday: Went to church with Mom and Dad. Introduced FK to the Catholic church (he had never been) and then went to brunch at Billy’s Pancake House. Delish! After that, FK and I watched Groundhog Day with my parents and then went to Dorothy and Erik’s superbowl bash at Glenn’s condo. Lots of fun–even with Janet’s boob.

Monday: Worked. Came home and FK and I had dinner and watched Average Joe.

Tuesday: Came home, had dinner. FK went out after dinner and I cannot quite remember what I did after that.

Wednesday: Came home, went to Hobby Lobby, had dinner, watched Bachelorette, talked to Mom, worked on Scrap Book.

Thursday: Went out with Kim Y. We shopped a little and went to Fridays and had frozen Cosmos. The tastey fruity concoction really had my warmed on the insides, let me tell you!

Friday: We are “laying low” as it were. was. is. will be. FK rented Lost in Translation and we’re going to get a pizza and salad and just veg. Ah. Fun!
