www.mypaddedcell.com

As you may have discerned from the title, I have a .com! One of our friends (the one who gave me the video from the last blog and who is also coming to visit next month!) surprised me with this a couple of days ago! I was in such amazement then it took a good hour for my jaw to come up off the floor! So you can now find me by simply looking up:

Sterling, you are the man!

On another note, I was lamenting to Branden before bed last week that I'm not looking forward to turning 29 next month. Granted it's the last age I will ever turn, just like Branden's mom and her dad (it runs in the family), but I'm still not settled with the idea of it. In Branden's effort to comfort me, he came out with, "You'll still be young, you're still only a quarter of the way through your life!"

"I don't want to live to be 116!" I wailed. We both started laughing and I told Branden he should never do math before bed!

Now the last week or so I have told some stories about my parents. Today I will give you a bit about Branden's parents. Back in the day both of his parents were models...which is why my husband is ridiculously good looking. The first time they met was on a photo shoot and it just so happened to be a photo shoot for a bridal shop! Branden's mom was the bride and his dad was the groom. They introduced his mom to his dad with, "This is the man you are going to marry". How right they were! To this day they celebrate two wedding anniversaries, the photo shoot wedding when they met and their actual wedding anniversary. They've been married over 25 years and they still get mistaken for newly-weds all the time!

My dad-in-law owns his own business and my mom-in-law posted on her facebook wall a while back (and I'm having to do this by memory since I can't find it now) "The best thing about working for my husband is all the sexual harassment from the boss!" Thankfully Branden grew up with them being like this so he thought it was just as funny as I did...which is great because our poor kids are going to have to have to get used to having frisky parents as well!

My wonderful in-laws on Valentines Day! And yes, my mom-in-law still gets carded when she buys wine!

    1. Mentally I feel like a kid, but my body tells me otherwise if I sleep on my hip wrong!

  2. Branden's parents are adorable and you're just a pup. I'm almost (gulp) 54.

    Love,

    1. I'm the youngest of the gradkids on both sides of my family so that's weird to think of too as I watch the generation of great grandkids below me start to graduate high school! Crazy!

  4. I clicked on your link and was directed back to this page. It was like when I put a cup of instant coffee in a microwave and went back in time.

    1. Back to the Future would have been slightly lame if they used a microwave over a DeLorean...although it could have been more believable ;)

  5. Wow, that is so cool! One thing my parents were never mistaken for was models. And congrats on the .com address. That should be fun.

    1. Yeah, neither of my parents, or anyone in my family, were models...but I won't complain since I got to marry the son of models! I got the long end of the stick :)

    1. HAHAHA, oh this made me laugh so much! Why is it that us women always hang onto undergarments for so long? I could open a drawer and tell tales from the past just from each piece! I can't begin to imagine what tales your bras would tell! hehehe

    2. You are right young one. You wouldn't want to know. You are way too young for such stories.

  8. Well done on the new www. I've adjusted my bookmarks. I'll stick it in the reader when I remember how to do that.

    Friends tell me being frisky with kids is something that requires the organization of a seaborne landing. But the one thing that they found a bit shocking was the P.J's. They said they were never people who donned the head to toe nightwear. But after the kids started talking what they would tell the world about what they saw that morning was sufficient to have the parents becomeing burkah wearers. And the days of padding about in the alltogether just died. The house simply stopped being theirs and became the kids.

    2. Hehehe, my in-laws would tell their boys to go play in the basement because it was mommy and daddy's 'nap time'. It worked! (and the boys did figure it out pretty quickly).
      My dad was always a whitey tighty wearer so a burkah would have been a dream come true for us!

    3. Are you watching Midday too?? I heard that this morning and I even my brain shouted out, "NO WAY!". I still think that 2000 was only a few years ago!

  11. Is it to be a "I'm twenty nine and that's the story I'm sticking with" sort of scenario?
