Exhibit A: My roommates and I, last year after one of the first snows of the season.
We are not smiling. We were not happy.The only good part about the snow this time was that I woke up to a big can of Stephen's hot chocolate on my front porch and a very nice note from my friend Jourdan Smith giving his winter condolences.
How sweet is that? Even though I'm quite upset about the snow still, it did make me feel a little bit warmer and quite a bit happier.
And speaking of people I love...
my mom sent the funniest text to Jordan, Rachel and I the other day.
Every year on the monday before Halloween my family decorates Halloween cookies and takes them to all the neighbors. I know for most families, this is a Christmas tradition, but my family has never been very conventional so for us, Halloween is cookie time.
Seeing as how Halloween is this weekend, last monday was "the monday" and as I was sitting in my bed that evening doing homework (watching 30 Rock) I got this text:
"First one to text the correct answer to this question gets $20 in their bank account: What do we always do for FHE the last Monday of October?"
Now, being the kind of girl who lives by her phone, I obviously won, responding with "COOKIES!" within .8 seconds. I just wish that all my tests here at school had such easy questions, produced the same reward, and were based on me being a really fast texter.
What a cute mom I have.
My bank account agrees.
