Madly in Love

Around Beloved Bayou we have been consumed with getting the house show-worthy at a moment's notice.  Of course the more difficult after effect of that process is keeping the house show-ready at any given moment.

We had back-to-back open houses this past weekend which meant the flurry of activity and stress levels were very high.

Day two of the open house, a.k.a. Mother's Day, we needed to become scarce so my family took me to lunch.

As we were leaving Subway*, I said, "Thank you for lunch."
Engineer replied, "Thanks for having my baby."
Then we both burst into fits of laughter.

I had a doubtful look on my face and started to say that I wasn't sure if...when he interrupted, "What?!  You don't think Subway is adequate thanks for birthing my baby?"

1-4-3 EM & DM for making me a Momma...and for lunch.

*I am not fussy about where they take me out to eat.  I was grateful for the gift that I neither had to cook nor to clean up. 


  1. I'm with you, Pary! It doesn't much matter to me where we eat if I'm not cooking! Takeout usually provides us with enough leftovers so that means a few more meals I don't have to think about!
