...She might act a little CRAZY.....
So, I have shared many times how I've
managed to put my foot in my mouth at the wrong time,
Or get myself in weird predicaments.....
Oh, you're new here?

And you may want to get a drink of water, it way take you awhile!
It happens A LOT.
Last weekend we were invited over to my husbands cousins house.
A long lost cousin who we just met a few years ago.
And, amazingly, only lives 35 minutes from us!
I'd love to tell the incredible story of how God put it together,
but it's not my story to tell.
Just trust me when I say God is always at work around us!!
They recently downsized from a huge, HUGE, house to
a much cozier house.
An adorable house with breathtaking views of the water.
After enjoying some pre-dinner appetizers, great conversation,
and a glass of wine
I needed to use the restroom.
Here's the thing about wine...
it relaxes your tongue a little...and increases the enthusiasm.
I already have a loose tongue and too much enthusiasm.
Here's another thing...
I have a long standing love affair with claw foot tubs!
I have wanted one since I can remember.
So, I walked into the bathroom and there it was.
A gorgeous, clawfoot tub. Gorgeous.
I ran my hands along the smooth white rim.
And I must have squealed.
Claudia came around the corner to check on me.
"I LOVE YOUR TUB!!" I said... in very breathy tone.
"One day when we return to our Whidbey* house I'm going to get one!!"
(We own a house on Whidbey Island that we rent out, we will retire there in a "few" years)
Then she said it.
"You can have this one, its not our style....We have another one
that we will be using when we remodel..."
"WHAT!? OMG, REALLLLLYYYYY!!!!!??????"
And with that,
I proceeded to climb into their/my tub with my boots on.
I laid my head back and had a "moment".
My heart swelled three times its size.
I could've laid there daydreaming for a very long time
about how it will look and feel in my own house.
Daydreamers, you know what I mean!
at the risk of looking like a total nut job
in front of Claudia and my husband.
(He had come in exclaiming "She has wanted a tub like this FOREVER"
after hearing all my excitement.)
realizing I just climbed into their tub with my boots on...
I got out and toned down the enthusiasm.
(only on the outside!!)
We had a wonderful dinner, laughter and a fun game with their 10 year old daughter.
I can't wait to get together again!
Before we left, I had to
see her one more time go to the restroom again.
I was tempted to lock myself in and rip all my clothes off...
but I restrained myself.
When we got home and my husband went to bed...
I went on Pinterest and continued my daydreaming!
Seriously, I am still so excited, and thankful!
(I'll post about it in a few years when we get moved back to Whidbey
but we have a big adventure in between now and then)
