First - We're Gorgeous. We're kidding. (sort of)
See, the kind ladies over at Life Laugh Latte were handing out awards, and our name made it on the list. Ooooh lucky us! Now we have this:
See. We told you we were lucky. Thanks ladies!
If you haven't checked them out, do it! Click >>> Life Laugh Latte They blog, they vlog and if you scroll back a few days, they have some pictures up of great Christmas decor and a yummy looking tamale pie! And of course, great conversation to go with it.
We know we should pass this on to a whole list of bloggers. But it is almost Christmas and life is a little, um, overwhelming. BUT, we want to do this. For you faithful followers - we love you. You actually read what we write. And you comment! But more importantly, we love YOUR blogs - you inspire us, teach us, entertain us, and fill our heads with all kinds of ideas (watch out husbands and kids!). So please take this award. Post it on your own site and pass it on to anyone you'd like.
And we'll pass it on to just one newly discovered (at least by us) blog:
This is so good. You get the same story told twice - once from the wife, and once from the husband. Oh yeah. It's good. Hilarious. Enlightening. An fun-filled reading ride.
Now do you want to know why we were cool before our time? Well, besides the obvious. (kidding again, sort of). You see, back in the winter of 1981/1982 (I identify by school years here), Lela and I showed up at a high school Friday night dance wearing a trend setting style. (Or so we thought) We took plain, gray, crew neck sweatshirts and cut the neck out. Then we popped those on over tube tops. (Good grief, we were in high school, we weren't about to go BRA-LESS) One bare shoulder sticking out of the freshly cut sweatshirt. We did up our hair and makeup and marched in there like we were 'the shit'. Of course we drew a little attention (very little), mostly from guys (only the nerdy ones). And mostly kids probably thought we were weird and chaperones were probably all wondering if that was okay or if they should tell us to cover up.
BUT, if you'll remember, in 1983, just a year or two later, a little movie was released. It was called Flashdance. Here, let me jog your memory:
Ya see that sweatshirt? Yeah, we did that first. (please don't tell me about any other previous movie, superstar, or high school nerd that did it before us. DON'T burst my personal, delusional bubble!)
So, yeah, we were cool before our time.
