Yesterday I went for a “quick” grocery shopping run and came home 2 1/2 hours later with:
- One pair of silver sandals – that I HAD to have, you know.
- a pink ruffled bathing suit for Cupcake
- a blue ruffled bathing suit for Lyberty (Hello! it was ON SALE!!! Look how much I saved!)
- espresso bean trail mix
- and a pretty blue dress
Then, while Leo put groceries away, I stood in the kitchen and told him, in vivid detail, what I thought about each of those items and why I bought them.
Then, while he held the baby in one arm and continued putting away groceries with the other, I put on the pretty blue dress and said “I don’t really need this, but I thought it was pretty – still. I don’t know. What do you think…” all a little whiney like.
That man turned around and with the baby all tiny in his arms, looked at me with a straight face and said “No, it’s really pretty on you. You should keep it. You could even wear it to church or something.”
I still can’t believe I got that man to marry me.
Luckiest. Woman. Ever.
