all dressed up


Luke: Funny how I am like, the best dressed member of this family.
Me: Excuse me?
Luke: Yeah, Clark and Alice have weird food all over them and you appear to be wearing some type of burlap sack...
Me: EXCUSE me?
Luke: Where did you get your burlap sack? Target? Or no, Goodwill. Target? Goodwill?
Me: Uh, neither.
Luke: Oh, so someone gave it to you?


Me: I can't find a single nice thing to wear.
Luke: What about what you had on yesterday?
Me: The burlap sack?
Luke: Uh, yeah. It was super cute and hot.

He was serious about everything he said in both conversations. He is both funny and maddening. I am glad he's my husband. He makes me laugh, even when ten seconds earlier laughter seemed miles away.

I spent Sunday and Monday with my grandparents and hope to go back tomorrow.
I am so thankful for all of the support you have given me. Thank you so much, times eleventy hundred. My laptop is still broken, but I keep reading and rereading the comments on my last post on my iPod. They feel like little hugs.

And for the record, my burlap sack was from Forever 21.
When I told Luke? He made fun of me some more.


  1. Still praying for you and your grandparents. Hope you have a good trip.

  2. Luke really couldn't have picked funnier things to say. I love both conversations :) Still praying for you and everyone's peace and comfort.

  3. Well, at least he did say you looked hot. When my husband says I look hot, it 's with concern; like I need some water to help me cool off a bit. =^)

    Sending love, prayers, and positive energy to you and your family...

  4. Aww. So funny and sad and sweet.

    I wish there was something I could do. Is there?


  5. ahhhh... men... living on different mental plains can be excruciating... and endearing... I love what Moe S. says about men (on the Simpsons). Only i can't think of just what that is at the moment. At least he thought your burlap sack looked hot! ha ha ha.

  6. that is something my husband would totally say! aren't they cute?

  7. I love you and have been thinking about you and your family constantly. I even made up a scenario in my head today while in Chicago that involved stealing the van that my in-laws rented to take us up there and driving like a crazy woman with Coral, only stopping to buy loads of cheese and wine before coming to LaPorte.

  8. Your husband sounds very much like mine. Except it sounds like he has more fashion sense than mine... or at least he thinks so.

    Still thinking of you and your family, Erin.


  9. That is funny!

    Thinking and praying for you and your family.

  10. That is funny!

    Thinking and praying for you and your family.

  11. You guys have the funniest conversations. I hope you're able to have some good time at your grandparents. Praying for you all.

  12. You and your hubby both crack me up! Y'all must be quite a pair.

    So glad you got to spend some time with your grandparents. Y'all are still in my prayers. Hugs to you.

  13. Luke and my husband would get along so well. The burlap sack comment is something Shane would say!

    Thinking of you.
