awkward and awesome Thursdays

since i didn't feel like getting dressed this morning, i thought i'd dust off an oldie instead. i promise to not slack next week. and why yes, that is a transformer's t-shirt. thanks for asking!

- mr. taylor always tries to wake me up in the morning, no matter how many failed attempts. i'm definitely NOT a morning person, you see. but one day i decided to surprise him and get up all on my own. i walk out of the room to find the living room empty with an open computer. i sit down on the couch and wrap myself up in the nice warm blanket. just then, mr. taylor walks out of the bathroom and sits down right next to me on the couch and gets back to homework on his computer. he sits there 2+ minutes and then gets up to walk to his office. i continue to sit there confused as to why he didn't say anything to me. again, 5+ minutes later he walks back out of his office to come sit back down on the couch and continue working on his laptop. with a failed attempt of making him happy that i actually got up before 9 o'clock, i pull the blanket off of me to grab some breakfast. as soon as i flinched just a little, mr. taylor jumps up scared out of his mind. he had no idea that i was even there! supposedly the red blanket had meshed well into the red couch and honestly did not even see me and my big bed head - head! to his own embarrassment, this has now happened twice. oh mr. taylor, you are not a very observant one, are you?
- going to a church activity night, mr. taylor and i were hopeful to make some friends. while sitting chatting with one lovely lady, mr. taylor leans over to me and whispers, "should we ask them on a date?" it's funny how your new life as a married couple is to ask other couples out. the dating world apparently never ends.
- i was given a number to call for further job information. due to dyslexia on someone's part, i instead called a rude old man from wyoming. it's bad enough when you accidentally call the wrong number, but to be chewed out for it just makes everything much worse. thanks rude old man. i am now traumatized to call anyone i don't know ever again!

- welcome back fall television. i love this time of year when all my favorite shows come back on the air. hello friends, i've missed you all!
- my amazingly beautiful and talented friend, Gavi, just made the big move out to LA to follow her dreams and become the start that she is and sing her heart out. so so SO proud of her! love you girl!
- two date nights in a row! on friday we went to the movies with another couple and saw kungfu panda 2. super cute! the next night we got together with another couple to watch the BYU football game over at our place. during the halftime we made a run (literally, we ran) down to the local creamery and got some amazing ice cream to eat our feelings away at the depressing game.
- in the middle of the night mr. taylor turned over, grabbed my hand, and held it all through the night. my heart nearly melted.
- this conversation: me - "so i went ahead and called that girl about that job. she didn't answer, but i left a message. she'll probably call back later tonight." mr. taylor - "no who else is going to call?" me - "ghost busters!?" yeah, i made myself crack up at my own joke. i'm so funny...

  12. The story of Mr Taylor not even seeing you - CRACKED ME UP. I thought you were going to say he was sleep walking (but that's because IC is a champion sleep talker/walker/mover/shaker).
