so there i was.
one day, i found myself in deep thought.
(not deep toots)
about lover of course.
and i realized that over the next 7 months,
none of our blog pictures
will contain the hotness
that is my Lover.
now, to SOME people,
that may be good news.
because some people can only handle so much
of Lover hotness.
can handle quite a bit.
and i didn't want to exclude him
from all the fun family events we'll be doing
over the course of his deployment.
so i found this website
called flat daddy.
they print out a picture
of your loved one
as a hugemongous sticker.
and then YOU, stick it on a foam board.
and there you have your Lover,
to take with you everywhere.
michele had a marvelous idea.
what if we just cut out Lover's head.
and then we ask people to wear Lover
at each fun place we visit.
if someone does something helpful
because Lover is gone or
that Lover might have done himself,
then they need to wear the flat Lover mask.
gosh i have smart friends.
all ready for his photo shoot,
we did a little makeshift photo booth together.
we're silly like that.
Lover has such a nice head, right?
and it wasn't long
before his flatty mcflatness
needed to be put to use.
rita, my friendly neighborhood hot chick,
came over to help me take down my trampoline.
something that Lover would surely have done.
and so, there he was.
my awesome pal, Bonnie,
on the opposite coast
surprised me with pizza one night
to help make one meal,
just a wee bit easier.
and since she couldn't be there
to hand deliver the pizza herself,
i had to make mr. delivery guy
wear flat lover.
he was thrilled.
be on the lookout for more flat Loverness
to come in many more posts!
now on to the pah-tay!
these two cuties,
dan and kim,
invited us over tonight
for some labor day fun.
yummy food, drinks, and dancing.
we rocked out to my new favorite
wii game, just dance.
even izey got crazy mad.
i totally kicked miah's butt
when we danced to eye of the tiger.
but i gave him props
for sweating like a mad man to take the gold.
michele's dan tried to help with gussy.
i dunno if it was the creepy dad mask
or the creeeeeepy dad mask
that was freaking gussy out.
the night turned out to be awesome.
Lover and i enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
pay no attention to the extra brown skin
that Lover is sportin.
he's been in afghanistan ya know.
and on an exciting side note...
took three steps today.
ooh rah gus!
