It's still warm. It was in the 80's over the weekend so I took advantage of it and wore my new favorite wardrobe item-a dress. I feel like we skipped Winter and are jumping straight ahead to Spring.
I don't know my parent's exact age. I only know if they tell me and then afterwards I usually forget. I don't feel bad about it because half the time I can't remember how old I am but the other side of it is I don't like to think of my parents getting older. By not knowing their age I am trying to trick myself into believing that they will be around forever and ever. It's easy to trick yourself when your parents don't look old. I mean, they have aged in the last 20 years but they still look great and go to the gym more then we do. My beautiful mom turned another year older on Sunday and we celebrated with them on Saturday.
My mom was looking for a new blush so we went straight to Mac and I bought her that and the blush brush as an add on to her Birthday gift. How many times in my life has it been the other way around? Too many to count; so it feels good to buy something for her while we are out shopping.
They also take your picture and give it to you for free. I was waiting for the lady to tell us that it would be $10 if we wanted to buy the picture but there was no charge and they even give you a code so you can get it online. And while we are on the topic; what's up with places charging you exorbitant prices for pictures when everyone has digital cameras and can take it themselves for free? I don't even know what to do with actual in my hand picture anymore. I tend to stuff them into our wedding album that we keep downstairs on the lower shelf of our coffee table.
We were seated with another couple celebrating their Birthday and at one point the woman says to us, "How many years apart are you?" I looked at MJ and we start laughing because it was clear to me that she thought we were brother and sister and that my parents were our parents. It was a little awkward because we are very married and then she was apologizing. I don't know if I felt worse for them or for us but we all just laughed it off. I wasn't offended but it was awkward. We started elbowing each other. I asked mom to make him stop, we kissed (on the lips for emphasis) and made up and that was the end of it. It's not the first time someone thought we were related. I see couples that look related and I kinda think it's funny but I would NEVER ask someone such a question unless I knew for sure. It's not as bad as someone asking how far along I am when there is no baby in sight though. That would be much worse.
