Shout Outs

5 Aug

So, my dear friends have had some exciting news!  (And, I mean that exclamation point…I try to limit my exclamation point usage, as I find that many people just throw them out there for no good reason.)  Back to the news: 

My friends Krissee and Daniel became parents last Friday.  And, not just one time…twice!  Their beautiful twins, Smith and Addison, arrived early Friday morning – and they could be the cutest babies I’ve ever seen.  For real, they are the definition of precious.  And, anyone who’s met Krissee knows that she was put on Earth to be a mom, so I’m sure she’s still on Cloud Nine (Hundred).  Can you imagine how ready she must have been for them to arrive?  I feel claustrophobic just thinking about three people sharing one body.  

Then, on Saturday night, my good friend (and former landlord/roommate) Nancy Margaret, got engaged to her boyfriend of almost 3 years!  His name is Bob, and you won’t find a nicer guy anywhere.  (Seriously…this guy will make your boyfriend/husband look like a jerk.)  They were at the beach with his family, and had planned to go on a boat ride with Bob’s brother and cousins, but when they got to the dock, there was no boat.  NM was confused and Bob acted a little mad, calling the guys and ordering them to turn around and come get them.  Then, as the boat approached, Bob tells NM that he can see them coming through his binoculars and asks her to look.  When she did, she saw this:
I know, right?  Just like in a movie!  Well, as if that wasn’t enough, he had his family and her family (and a few friends) waiting to surprise her with their first engagement party.  That Bob, I tell ya…he’s a sweetheart.  She is, too, so you can’t hate her.  If she were a really crappy person we could talk trash about her, but, sigh, she’s not.  She’d give you her last dollar if you needed it.  (Or she might let you turn in your rent check two weeks late without a single complaint.  But I don’t know that for sure, I’m only guessing.)

Congratulations to both couples!  New beginnings are exciting, scary and fun.  Here’s hoping you have lots of excitement and fun, and only a tiny bit of scary.

Also, on the shout out list is my friend Lauren, who celebrates a birthday on this day.  Happy Birthday, Lars!
