delicious word of the day — “Tuaca”

March 10, 2008 at 1:34 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 34 Comments

What a weekend! I guess I should say, What a Saturday! Quite frankly, Friday night and Sunday sort of sucked. But Saturday was cool.

We found out Barney was going to be at the toy store doing pictures with kids, so we went up there to do that. Amy brought Ayden, who LOVES Barney and I wasn’t so sure Emma Kelly would get it. I mean, she’s SEEN Barney, but we don’t really put it on for her that much. And remembering how she freaked out with Santa Claus who’s just a guy with a beard and a hot red suit, I wasn’t so sure she’d be able to handle Barney and all his purpleness. SHE FREAKING LOVED HIM. I swear, she was just about to explode all over the place! But it was cute and fabulous and I know she won’t remember it but we got a really cool picture to remind her about it one day. (If you click on it, it’ll get bigger.)


 And since Amy’s been dying to meet “Uncle Daddy” and she’s about to bust out a baby any minute now, we arranged for a little double date for Saturday night which ended up with everybody being invited, seven showing up, and Amy and Uncle Daddy sitting as far as physically possible away from each other. They ended up not getting to know each other AT ALL, but at least Amy and Kinsey seemed to hit it off, so all was not a complete loss. And we had a fun waiter who never would bring me anything I wanted because he knew what he wanted me to have was better. And he ended up being right, so it was cool. I said, “I’ll have an apple martini, please.” And he said, “No, I think I’ll bring you something better.” And he did! Then I said, “I’ll have another one of that drink you picked for me instead of dessert,  please.” And he said, “No, I’ll bring you something even better.” And he did! And when Amy tried to order chocolate cake, he said no. He didn’t think the chocolate cake was any good. But she is stubborn and she is pregnant and she ordered it anyway. Guess what? He was right! And now he’s my new favorite waiter ever.  Amy might not have fallen in love with Uncle Daddy but I fell in love with my waiter man.

Then we dumped the pregnant chick and we all went over to a comedy club where we watched a room full of people try really hard to laugh at a comedian who wasn’t that funny, but when you’ve paid that much to see a comedian perform, you want to laugh, dang it!! We left before it was over and headed over to the dueling piano bar. Wow. People get really drunk at dueling piano bars, don’t they? Is that a requirement or something? I can’t explain to you what I saw and do it any justice, so I won’t. But Uncle Daddy got up there on the drums and busted out a little “Mustang Sally,” which was super cool and I’m like, Yeah…I’m with him…So that was fun. Then we went over to one more bar where we tuckered ourselves out we were home by midnight or so. And that was our big night out. Sunday was just a bunch of nothing. I had big plans of sorting through paperwork and cleaning out closets and doing all sorts of responsible stuff, but that side of me decided to go away again and I ended up watching a “Rock of Love” marathon and eating Pirate Booty all day. And let me just tell you, if you haven’t tried Pirate Booty, you don’t know what you’re missing.

This week, my goals are to actually do some of that responsible stuff I meant to do today and be a good person. Isn’t that a good goal?

  18. Uncle Daddy & Pirate Booty?? Man, am I lost!!

  19. That is the cutest d_m picture I have ever seen. You two are awesome!

  20. Hi Kellie, I heard you this am making a comment about Uncle Daddy and his “bad habit”, I too thought I would never date a smoker, much less marry him. We (or I) had all these deadlines…I will not date you until you stop smoking, you will not meet the kids until you stop smoking, I will not marry you until you stop smoking…but I loved him so much and I knew that he loved me too, and that it would work out. So he would wear a patch when he was around the kids and he worked really hard at quitting. A month after we married he quit and has not smoked in over 8 months!! So proud of him!! He says its a constant battle, but he has not lost it yet. Sometimes, we need to look at a person as a whole instead of breaking down the parts…Just my opinion.

    BTW, E.K. (as everyone has begun to call her) looks absolutely giddy… and you look terrific also. Thanks for being a part of our mornings.


  21. I don’t know what it is about that dang purple muppet that drives the kids crazy!! (Spoken by a mama with almost the same picture.) What a cutie!

  22. where do you get her clothes????!!!?!?!

  23. Kellie you are so skinney! EK looks adorable!

  24. this daylight savings crap has really harshed my mellow today.

  25. That is pure unadulterated joy on Emma’s face!!! How fun! Wonderful memories that will be. You are a fantastic Mom and I know you don’t need be told that buy people you don’t know but, I still think you are. LOL HAve a great week!

  26. Angela, it was really not a grandma sweater, though I can see how you would think that from the pic. It’s longer and looked nice. I was in front of Kellie in the FOREVER LONG line at the store and she looked very stylish!
