Proudest Day of My Life

So, I think our bad luck streak is long over. Tink is back from the shop and looks fantastic, but perhaps more impressive-- check out this Scrabble board:

Yes, with words like "wrongest" (which I really didn't think was a word, but Mr. Webster disagrees and it scored me the bonus bingo), "archives" and "wooded"... let's just say Brian didn't stand a chance! :) baaaaaa ha ha ha. ( for all you Scrabble players out there who are laughing at our pathetic board, just realize that usually when we play, everything is clustered in the middle, and we're trying to build off words like "the" "dog" and "an". :) This beautifully spaced board was quite the accomplishment. And that high score...unheard of for us! )

And that is your current edition of "When 2 Dorks Collide". (Hmmm...maybe it's time to change the name of the blog. What do you think? The Newlywed thing will only be true a little longer, after all.... hmmm. Wait for it...wait for it...)

OH...and one more thing. My good friend is doing a special thing on her blog in honor of Thanksgiving. Each day, she's posting three things that she's grateful for. Her blog has been making me so happy every time I read it, and leaving me feeling so warm and fuzzy (ok...that was cheesy, but true. That's the only way to describe it...), that I thought I'd end each post I make this month by following her lead.

So, today I am grateful for:

1-The founding fathers and their wives. Random and weird, but I've been reading a lot of history stuff lately, and my usually average patriotism has been given a big boost. I can't believe what the founding fathers, and even more so their wives, sacrificed to establish America. Go Adams and Washington!

2-The upcoming holidays. Who doesn't get an extra surge of happiness when they realize they're humming along to a Christmas tune while they shop?

3-An amazing husband who provides for me materially, emotionally and spiritually. I melt when he leaves for work at 6:30 a.m, exhausted but not complaining, and then celebrates (seriously, celebrates) when he gets home and hears I had a crazy unusual morning and was able to sleep in til 10. Boy did I ever luck out with him! :)

You ARE the champion of the world!! There is a reason that Nate and I don't play scrabble... After all, having a board at the end of the game with nothing but "potty words" on it, makes me feel less than intelligent and really does something to my self esteem. You guys are awesome!!!

OK, sorry, but "yolky"? As in, "This egg is extra yolky"? Your blog does make me want to play Scrabble though. We can't wait to see you in TWO WEEKS!!!!!!!!
