Conversation Starters

I got tagged like two weeks after having Ella for a MeMe. The MeMe where you tell 50 things about yourself. Yeah, it didn't happen.

But let me give you something else sorta similar. If I happen see you sometime in real life (or in the land of internets) here are some conversation starters. You may want me to expound on these, thus starting up a fantastic conversation. Or not. Whatever.

:: my parents are moving to UT from NM. yes, that was the big Mother's Day news of a few weeks ago.

:: i was sick with the flu last week and didn't eat for like two days yet gained 5 lbs.... very perplexing (not to mention distressing) to me.

:: kaden's graduating from preschool and can't wait to start kindergarten. he keeps forgetting about the 2+ months of summer we've got to plow through in the meantime

:: ella is trying desperately to avoid my attempts at forcing her to learn to crawl. she's winning, so far.

:: brynnlee loves trying to ride her "big girl bike". thank you craigslist. a cheap bike and no one was murdered during the pickup. can't ask for a better transaction, can ya?

:: my brother interviewed with a company here. we'll hear about the possible move in the next few weeks. can't wait.

:: got a letter in the mail letting us know our old neighbor in Idaho passed away and left us $28,000. timing couldn't be better.

Yeah, I lied on one. And I bet you are totally stumped as to which, or not.

Hey! I'm just trying to be cleaver, funny, and entertaining. I make no guarantees as to the success of living up to these ridiculously high expectations I set for myself.

ok, was the 28,000 dollar thing the one you were kidding about? If it wasn't congrats on that one.

Kristen said...

I wish the 28k was for us....need a down payment for a house. Hope all is well. Still biting our nails waiting for an answer with Fluor...hopefully soon. Nathan is going with your p's to look at houses next week. Should be interesting. Love you guys.

At first I was like, "What! That's a coincidence since we just talked today about how nice it would be to inherit money from someone." Then I realized joke was on me--ha ha!!!

Megan said...

stella thinks kinndergarten will start the day after tomorrow...
i keep trying to explain.
we have a little sitter here but no crawling either--truthfully, i prefer just sitting and smiling--it's easier on me.

Chief Momma said...

I hope you're not joking on the 28k...that would be one sweet hook-up!

Nancy Face said...

I've never bought or sold anything using craigslist because I'm kinda scared about the possibility of murderers and stuff!

Amy said...

Addison just barely start crawling a couple weeks ago. It happens too soon... and then they are into everything! Although it is so cute when he comes crawling around the corner looking for me...

PRP said...

Ok, my heart seriously lept at the idea of you inheriting some money...as least your sense of humor is in tack like always!

Sarah said...

Kaden will be such a cute guy in kindergarten next year. It is so exciting for those little ones to finally go to the big school. That sure would have been nice to have some neighbors leave you some money, maybe something even better will happen to you guys soon.

AOlson said...

Yeah, you got me! I was like AWESOME!! So happy for her. 28K would be nice, huh.

I was like, "Ok; that last one has to be a joke". But wouldn't it be cool if it weren't?

Going through the flu is license for losing weight. That totally sucks that you actually gained weight. Stupid flu.

tharker said...

Don't we all wish we were like Jared and Michelle? I keep thinking, "Who does that actually happen to?" Apparently to them, and not us ;)

JustRandi said...

Well, as long as no one got murdered, I call it a successful transaction!

And 28K? Wow. At least it's fun to think about...

Stephanette said...

dang...I was thinking how blessed you are. Then I read the fine print. I love the new blog background.

Shauna said...

Hope you have a great weekend :)

hatch said...

You got me on the inheritence. I thought wow they must be amazing neighbors, and then I started evaluating what kind of neighbor I was......
Then I read the rest.
Having the same conversation about kindergarten over and over again at my house too.

LaDeaux family said...

You got me too. I was like you must be some great neighbors to have someone do that for you. I guess you're just average, ha ha!
