100.

Standard

This is post number 100. It’s kind of crazy that many of you have read all 100 posts.

I feel kind of bad for you. I’m really not that interesting. 🙂

Just kidding. Thanks for reading!!

I haven’t posted in a while because I knew this was #100 and I felt like I needed something big to write about. So, after about 3 weeks of waiting for something exciting to happen- I gave up and I’m just going to write something pointless instead.

During our 100 posts we have:

argued about flip flops and here…

debated texting versus calling

moved to Nashville

had a baby

baked a lot

told a lot of anonymous people off 🙂

done a lot of cleaning and disposed of a lot of junk

picked multiple March Madness brackets

“renewed” my vows

given grammar lessons

survived cicadas

graduated college…finally

survived pregnancy

possibly the best of all, survived the pooptastrophe

Those are just some of my favorites. Thanks for reading (seriously). I love writing and it’s always nice to know someone is reading it. 🙂

Snakes, Racoons, and Birdies.

Standard

Let me start by apologizing for not blogging for the past month. Seriously, I am sorry. Not that anyone cared that I was gone, but I should blog for my personal health if nothing else.

I have had two run-ins with a couple of South Florida’s wildlife over the past two days, and I would like to share them with you.

The first happened at the house that I am managing (and hopefully selling) in The Ritz Carlton. I was walking through the gate just as I do several times every week, and as I unlocked the front door, I noticed something in front of me as the alarm was going off. It was a red coral snake that had nestled up under the door and was blocking my entrance into the house. Hearing the alarm going off and knowing that I had no choice, I courageously leaped over the deadly reptile and turned the alarm off. Oh yea, I forgot to mention how much I hate snakes. I am really scared of them, and they make me sick to my stomach. That said, I grabbed the nearest “weapon” to defend “my” house which happened to be a small broom. I swept the snake out into the driveway at which time the snake coiled up and tried to strike me. I swung the broom at it violently until i chase it into the grass. I then courageously sprinted inside and locked the door. White Mamba-1, Coral Snake-0! Boom.

The second incident happened this evening at Abacoa Golf Club where I was in the midst of one of my best rounds of golf in recent memory. Unfortunately, until the 15th hole, I had no company or witnesses to share this memorable round with. As I pulled up to the tee box, I noticed a friendly racoon guarding the tee. He looked harmless, so I got out and grabbed my 9 iron, at which time the racoon jumped in my cart. I yelled at him, so he ran a few yards away. I decided to give him my crackers because he looked hungry, and I thought this would buy me some time to hit my shot. It worked, and I hit my shot to 3 feet. I jumped into the cart, waved to my new friend, and sank a birdie which would end up being the start of my birdie hat trick (that’s 3 in row for those of you who aren’t up to speed on sporting lingo). 6 birdies total on the day, and a great round witnessed by no one except a racoon.

For those wondering, I boycotted National Flip Flop Day.

Some Thoughts

Standard

I don’t have enough on one topic to write about today, so I’m going to do a little topic-hopping. (That’s a good, new, made up phrase.)

First- We had girl’s night last night and it was a blast. I think there were 13 of us and it went great. I am so blessed to have such great friends and they are really blessed to have me as a friend! (just kidding. haha.) Also- I made molten chocolate lava cake for everyone for dessert. I  make it all the time and it comes out perfectly. Attempting to make 12 at a time didn’t go so well…of course. I think they still tasted ok though. 🙂

Second- VBS IS OVER!!! I have to say that VBS was super fun. At least to me. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did. A big shout out to everyone that helped! Brent and I couldn’t have done it without you. I’m already excited for next year. If you want to check out some pictures, here’s a link.

Thirdly- I’m going to Disney this weekend with my parentals. It should be a good time. I am ready for a little vacation, even though next week I’m going on vacation to Nashville. 🙂

Fourthly- That reminds me. I’ll be in Nashville next week for Wes & Marcy’s wedding. I can’t wait to see it. I’m sure it’s going to be beautiful. Being married is great!

Fifthly- do you say the “f” in “fifth”?

Sixthly- Are you really still reading this? You are!! You deserve a prize. I wish I had a prize to give you, but I don’t.

I’ll make you a cupcake or something.

Seventhly- Father’s Day is Sunday, in case you forgot. I did not forget, but I did not have any time to get a gift yet and I leave for Disney this afternoon. So… I hope saying “Happy Father’s Day!” on my blog will count. 🙂

Eighthly- My hair is longer than it has ever been since I was, like, 7 years old.

Ninethly- Today is NATIONAL FLIP FLOP DAY! I think it’s Brent’s favorite day. I noticed he didn’t have any flip-flops on, though. Too bad for him. Tropical Smoothie is giving away free smoothies if you have flip-flops on. If you live in Palm Beach County, you need to go to the one on Donald Ross. Why? Because the owners are super cool.

Tenthly- Seriously- if you made it all the way to here, you deserve a prize. I will give you a sticker that says “Lindsey’s #1 Fan!” Because that’s what you are!
