The Scoop

I had several of y'all ask me to tell you more about how I met my hubby. It's an awesome story. Like out of the movies. (And it would star George Clooney and Reese Witherspoon- hey it's my movie. I can have whatever stars I want!) was 6 years ago and I was flying to California to go to a wedding with a friend. I had a layover in Phoenix. Now, I don't know about y'all but I'm quite chatty. I could make friends with a brick wall. So when my flight was delayed and there was a whole big group of us standing around I looked to my right and saw a VERY handsome man. I said, "Hey...are you on this flight?" Classy, right? Real original. But actually he said, "No. I'm on standby..." And then we started talking. We probably chatted back and forth for ten minutes and then he said, "Well...I guess I better go check my standby status." Then we said goodbye. I thought nothing of it. I pulled out my People magazine and started reading and then HE CAME BACK! "I never do this, but here's my business card. I hope you call or email me." And when I returned from my trip I emailed him and then we started talking. He had a job offer a couple of months later and moved here to Texas! Isn't that the best story?!

I don't know about y'all but it's been a tough week. My kids have not been well behaved and it's worn me out. I  I promise to post something good tomorrow or Friday. This picture was on Pinterest and I think it's a hoot!

  5. It took me a good full minute to figure out your poster. Then I felt really dumb but I laughed anyway.

    What a fun romantic story!
    ...but I am still in love with your starbucks boyfriend.

  6. Reagan- I still love my Starbucks boyfriend too. Only...he moved to a different store. I have a new boyfriend who wears Juicy velour hoodies that I heart (and have). We have taken it to the next level where we tell each other we are beautiful, but I don't love him yet. I used to tell my old Starbucks boyfriend, "Love you honey!" 'Love you too gorgeous!" We'll get there!

    1. oh my goodness juicy velour hoodies. I would die. I can't believe you took it to the next level. That's hilarious.

  7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this story and I'm so glad you told it (I was one of the ones who asked you for more info!). This is adorable and I love the stars you casted for the movie and I would definitely go see it!

  15. Oh, I love that story! I usually end up talking with an old lady at the airport, not a handsome man!

    I have one MAJOR basketcase in my class right now (no meds) and he is setting off bad behaviors from others that normally I can nip in the bud earlier in the year. Needless to say, I'm exhausted!

    Love the T Rex poster :)

  16. LOVE the picture! Thanks for starting my day with a smile!
