They came back bearing gifts: Ashley's mom sent some goodies to us from Florida - so nice! We're looking forward to meeting their family. Ashley had spent some time in India with her dad before Christmas time and she brought back a big bag of Indian goodies for us too! There was also something else hiding in the bag which she did NOT mean to give us, but it gave us a good laugh. We kind of got a quick up close and personal peek into Ashley's world - now we're really family, huh Ash? What was it? You'll have to ask her, but L was bug-eyed for a second, trying to figure out why this was part of the gift. Bwahahahaha! Those are the kinds of things that bond families, and that you never live down.
Seriously though, she's a wonderful girl with a good, hearty laugh. I have a feeling that, being married to Scott, we're going to do a lot of laughing. She's absolutely perfect for him, and we (and he) couldn't be happier! We don't have a date yet, but I have a feeling we're going to have a summer wedding!
CHANGING THE SUBJECT:
This evening was spent getting a new phone - I got an i-Phone!!!! So awesome... and I have no idea how to work it, really. I'm very fumbly with it. My old phone was a pink Razr and so old that one phone call would drain the battery. It's going to be nice to have this phone with me in Puerto Rico this next week. I also got myself some new walking shoes - my old ones had holes worn in the heels. (We do a lot of walking) AND - they were completely muddy from walking the trails after our latest rain, so I didn't want to throw them into a suitcase for PR. So I'm excited - a new phone and new shoes!
But my dear friends, I worked all day and did all of that phone and shoe shopping in boots that I just peeled off right before I started blogging. That was a mistake, as my feet are incredibly stinky right now, so I'm going to excuse myself to go wash them and put some nice smelling lotion on them. Seriously, I can barely stand myself right now. You understand. I'll be back before you know it, smelling much much nicer. For now, just concentrate on the cuteness of this sweet couple:
