Monday Moments...

Life is funnier than we think...I'm reminded almost daily of my need and yes, even my choice, to lighten up and laugh at life. In that end, I've decided to share some of the silly moments and thoughts that come the way of the Smiths..:)
"The Starbucks Missile"
My Mom had bought our little family a Vanilla Bean Frapuccino at Starbucks (I LOVE those!) to share amongst ourselves. And although we had managed to down about half of the Mega Huge Large Size (a Venti...right Nickle-Pickle/Tracers?) we still had a a good quarter of the frozen drink left in our cup.

So, we stuck the whole thing in the bottom of the freezer for my dear hubby and I to share at a later time without tiny girlies around. A private dessert-time becomes a sacred thing once one has small children - I once heard a Christian comedian do a whole bit on how he and his wife hid brownies under their bed away from the children. So, when his wife invited him down to the bedroom for *dessert*, she really meant dessert. :) Hee,hee!

Anyway, back to the story at hand.....

We had taken the drink back out of the freezer, where it had, of course, frozen into one large round chunk. So, we got out the spoon and picked away at it, eating small frozen slivers and chunks as we could get them.

This went on for a few minutes before my hubby decided to "soften" the frappucino even more by squeezing the sides of the cup. The cup made a funny sound as he ryhthmically pushed the plastic sides in.

Ka-Thwunka....wait,wait...Ka-Thwunka

It was on the third or fouth Ka-Thwunka when it happened. The entire round-shaped chunk of frapuccino flew up out of the cup.

WAAAY UP....

It caught the tip of my dear hubby's nose on it's flight up, before turning, circling, and splatting his entire face on it's return trip down. Then the disc bounced off the table, hit the chair, and fell to the floor.

This is one of those moments, as you look at your hubby covered in frozen frapuccino and just...

Laugh, and laugh, and laugh....

He laughed too. We bent over we were laughing so hard. We laughed so hard and so long that our little frozen disc melted into mush on the kitchen floor.

The first words out of his mouth were, "You've got to blog about this!" We cleaned up the mess and decided that the laugh was worth it.

I hope that you get a smile out of this too, and remember to laugh today at all of the silly moments of YOUR life! :)

That is such a sweet moment when you can just laugh a good hard laugh with your hubby or anyone that you care dearly about! So glad you got ot do it! Hee Hee!

Matt and I have had a couple of those lately as we learn to try to apply our Love and Respect learnings into our marriage. It has brought us into laughter and there is nothing better than that especially when the situation could have gone the complete opposite way into anger and frustration! :)

So glad to see how much fun and pampering you seem to be getting! The bath salts sound awesome, by the way. ;-) And, I can totally relate to hiding the desert and sneaking a time to share. How fun when it becomes a delightfully funny time of sharing! Bless you.
