Bend and Snap!

On a whim, my sisters and I decided to get tickets to Legally Blonde the musical...I thought it was rather fitting considering our circumstances! Anyway, we had a great time at the show and loved every minute of it. A few of the highlights from the show were the song "Is he gay or European?" and of course the classic "Bend and Snap" scene! However, I must confess my favorite part of the night came after the show when we had an encounter with an intoxicated homeless man on our walk back to the car.

This was the scenario (don't judge)...

Homeless Guy: "Hey ladies, do you have any spare cash?"

We blondes (and mom): "No sorry sir, we didn't bring our purses."

Homeless Guy: "Yeah, whatever...F*** you! (walks away)

Mari (Looking back at him in disgust): "Really dude? Get a job...A** hole!"

Jan and I : "You're gonna get us killed!"

Mari: "Whatever, he's old and scrawny, plus there's only one of him and three of us...We can totally take him. I'm so not worried!"

I must admit, at the moment, I was a little nervous thinking we were going to get attacked by a drunk homeless dude, but since we didn't, we have laughed about this ever since, and I'm sure it will become another family classic! Thanks Mari, for having our backs!

Super Seniors :)

Okay, so you know how I have old parents? Well I do. All three of us just happen to be seniors...I'm a senior at WSU working on my BSN and they're, well they're senior citizens. Anyway, I recently had the wonderful opportunity to be their designated driver for their twinner colonoscopies! Yep, you read it right...colonoscopies on the same day in the same room! How romantic right? I felt like it was my responsibility to get them to their appointment because I'm "the nurse" and I'm constantly hounding them to take care of themselves. But I always tell them, "You guys chose to have me when you were old, so you better choose to stay alive till I'm old!" Their reply is typically something like this, "We didn't choose to have you." But that's not my fault now is it?! I would like to think I'm a surprise not an accident...But that's beside the point. After all, growing up with old parents has its perks. Going to the movies was always economical... "One child, two seniors, thanks!" And as a teenager, I never had to worry about them hearing me come in late because they couldn't hear anyway. In all honesty, I really do love being the baby of the family and I couldn't ask for better parents...even if they are elderly!

Taking the Plunge

I have always believed that starting a blog coincided with getting hitched, selling Sentsy candles, and/or attending a monthly PTA meeting. But I am officially breaking my own rule and entering the blogging world as a single twenty-something juggling a full-time job, part time school, and a social life in the heart of happy valley. What in the world am I thinking? (PS...My sisters talked me into it!)
