- when your very firm and often declared anti-birkenstock stance that lasted all through the 90's and remained strong during their recent comeback suddenly crumbles and you find yourself surfing the internet till 1:00am searching for the color and style you want in your size. (Victory was found at Zappos.com. Hallelujah.)
- husband's new state champion ring. It's faaaaannnncy!
- discovering the Hallmark channel TV series When Calls the Heart on Netflix with your daughter and having nightly living room dates to watch it together after the boys are in bed. It's cheesy and predictable and WONDERFUL... we are so, so hooked.
- when Russ comes home while we are watching said show and within 2 minutes is making horrible fun of it, rolling his eyes dramatically before tuning out to watch hunting clips on his phone, but 10 minutes later we notice his phone is forgotten in his lap and he's been sucked in completely, and at the 35 minute mark suddenly HE'S CRYING and Kendall and I have to pause the episode because we are laughing so hard at him.
HE HASN'T LET US WATCH AN EPISODE WITHOUT HIM SINCE.
I love that guy.
