Ella's Practical Solution

We were driving in the car yesterday when Ella exclaimed from the back of the car. Here is our conversation:

Ella: OH!
Me: What's wrong Ella?
Ella: Booger! [holds up the offending little thing on the tip of her finger]
Me: Oh--do you need me to give you a tissue?
Ella: [holding up a "clean" finger] No. Me eat it.

Ryan and I were sitting at the table together and I noticed that he has a new out cropping of gray hairs. The following conversation ensued:

Brittaney: Uh-oh, you are getting a bunch of new gray hairs. You know what that means.
Ryan: What?
Brittaney: Everyone is going to wonder how you were lucky enough to find a wife that is way younger AND way hotter than you. You know, instead of just way hotter, like they do now.
Ryan: Uh-huh... and what are they going to think when I'm walking around with you?

Oh Glorious Day!

My sister just sent me this image captured from the Netflix "Talking Animal Movies" section. I cannot believe that I had not yet stumbled across this hidden gem. Talking animal movie buffs rejoice--our time is now.

My Bucket List

See the 7 Natural Wonders of the World
I was just talking about this the other day! It is amazing to me how the processes of our Earth (ok--dorky science teacher, yeah-yeah) have made these incredible structures. I think, if the Earth could put in that much time and effort, I could hop on a plane and check them out.

Adopt a Baby From China
I just want a baby that looks Asian. And, as Madison and Ella have proved, my 11.5 chinese chromosomes just ain't gonna get the job done. No offense to my blonde little rugrats--they are the cutest kids I have ever seen. However, they may also be the whitest. What?

Own a House
Okay--so I have kind of done this one. However, I still walk into my house in amazement almost every day. Who would have thought, years ago, that I could afford to buy a house... that had four standing walls and indoor plumbing.

Give an Extravagent and Totally Unexpected Gift
I constantly run the, "what if I won 1 million dollars" scenario through my head. I just love, love, love giving gifts--the bigger the better. I think it would be so awesome to roll up to someone's house in their dream car or to send a kid to college that thought they could never afford it. I really should start playing the lotto...

Live in the same town as our families
I'm not sure that this one will ever get done. Ryan's family are mountain people--my parent's are (soon to be) full time wine country folk--Gabrielle and Ryan live in Southern California and my Rops are all over the west coast. However, if it is possible, I love the idea of buying a huge chunk of land and living together like one big ol' commune. Maybe we could grow our own food and make our own clothes too. What?

And the truth comes out...

My sister, Gabrielle, just got engaged. I found a fortune teller online and I asked:

"Will Brittaney look better than Gabrielle at her wedding."

The fortune teller answered:

"I know you know this already, but YES!"

Oh-yeah. What?

If I don't answer the phone when you call...

Ryan ran to Lowe's tonight at around 9pm to purchase:

- 1 pick axe
- 1 large burlap bag

Okay... the pick axe is for digging a large hole to roast a pig in and the bag is to put the pig inside of, however, it all looks a little suspicious to me. Just saying.

Why Ryan got the (purple) stink eye...

The other day Ryan and I had this conversation:

Ryan: [staring at my face quizzically] I really like the makeup you have on the top of your eye but the stuff on the bottom looks weird.

Brittaney: I don't have make up on the bottom of my eye.

Ryan: Then what is the purple stuff?

Brittaney: My skin.

Ryan: Oh [long pause] maybe you should think about putting some make-up on it then.

What the H?
