of family, food and fainting.
of love, laughter and late nights.
i spent friday night through sunday morning in columbus.
friday night:: i hung out with malakai. talked about his trip to hawaii, read goodnight moon, read little gorilla, played with his fire truck and off to bed he went. me and jordyn had popcorn and fanta and watched the twilight saga:: new moon after mark went to bed. it was nice to have some sister-time. we laughed together. pointing out everything we love about edward and jacob. we each ate a whole bag of popcorn. no guilt. so good.
saturday:: malakai comes storming in my room wayyyy too early "Shelby up! Downstairs!" i crawled out of bed. threw on a hoodie and went downstairs to hangout. breakfast. music and books with malakai surrounded the morning. ate a little lunch. gave malakai a bubble bath, he went down for his nap and then me and jordyn headed to do a little shopping. well. it was pretty non-eventful until we were in target. she was trying on new maternity clothes, and the dressing room was weird and co-ed and we were creeped out so i went in with her. so i'm sitting there in the dressing room with her. with a cami, sweatshirt, coat and scarf on, holding her big coat and scarf and all the "no's" and all of a sudden her voice became slower and the room turned like a kalidascope. i said "jordyn im overheating i have to take my clothes off" and i just started getting everything off me. then i look at her "dont freak out but im gunna faint." so i sat on the floor and the room just went away. finally she's like "are you okay" and im like "uhhh no" the room is coming back. my hearing is back, and my vision was slowly returning. yes. this happens often. i just faint. it's happened so many places. parking lots. getting a pedicure. school. baking class. shower. just everywhere. i just faint sometimes. so anyways....due to my little spell on the way home we got shamrock shakes!!! i also think it was a pregnancy craving for jordyn, but whatever. still delicious. saturday night was non-eventful. hummus and martinis filled the evening. along with The Help.
sunday:: i'm woken up again "Shelby GOODMORNING!!!!! GET UP! COME DOWNSTAIRS!!! SHELBY!!!!!!" i'm like "okay bean i'm up i'm up" thank the Lord it was after 9. breakfast, books, and talk and pictures of their trip to hawaii...which fingers crossed i'm going next year. i left around 10:30. the drive home was peaceful. country countdown with tim mcgraw basically made my life. and i have a new favorite song of his. "highway dont care" listen. its great. i. love. tim. mcgraw. just so you know. okay. so anyways i got home and aunt julie and uncle richard were here. i love them. so much. they make me laugh more than anyone else i know. cincinnati chili, cookie baking and candy eating filled the rest of the afternoon. they left around 6. i did my homework, watched part of the oscars, and now i'm just writing. about my long crazy weekend. and i feel like no one is reading this today. but thats alright. one day when i cant remember my youth, i'll have this to read. good thinking shelby. i'll tell myself. you were smart to blog at 21. even if no one read it.
in honor of my nephew a.k.a. bff malakai...
[ In the great green room there was a telephone. And a red balloon. And a picture of...the cow jumping over the moon. And 3 little bears sitting in chairs. And two little kittens and a pair of mittens. And a little toy house And a young mouse. And a comb and a brush and a bowl full of mush And a quiet old lady who was whispering "hush" Goodnight room Goodnight room. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon. Goodnight light and the red balloon. Goodnight bears Goodnight chairs. Goodnight kittens and Goodnight mittens. Goodnight clocks and goodnight socks. Goodnight little house and Goodnight mouse. Goodnight comb and Goodnight brush. Goodnight nobody Goodnight mush. And Goodnight to the old lady whispering "hush". Goodnight stars Goodnight air. Goodnight noises everywhere.]
yep. i memorized the book. literally. only looked up what came after "clocks" seems i forgot about the socks. ironic because i hate socks.
okay well before i say anything dumb because of my insomnia brain. or accidently publically proclaim my love for someone. i think i'll stop writing.
love you all.
Blessed by a Heavenly Daddy,
