I’m glad to hear that my last posts got a few laughs. I ended up with only one person wanting to join my support group, though I think many of you understood what I was getting at. I hope that you all know that I was only half serious about Joel’s coat and was just looking for a chance to tease him a bit. He can really dish it out, so he has to take it once in a while too :-) I think after seeing him sewing on his own buttons, some of the ladies thought he could do no wrong. He kept up with the comments coming in and took great joy in pointing out how many of you liked his coat!
I have to admit this isn’t the first time I have been wrong about his coats. A few years back, I bought him a coat off the clearance rack as a practical joke. I am always teasing him about his old man tendencies and I thought this was the perfect old man coat (and yes, I realize that I am the kettle calling the pot black here. I didn’t know anyone else in college that quilted! And back then there was a huge stereotype that all quilters were of . . . um . . . advanced age. Plus, there are all those homemade sweaters!). Turns out that he loved the coat, and kept it. Again, shows you how much I know about fashion. Now, everywhere he goes, he gets compliments on the coat. To top that off, last week he had a big motorcycle dude, with a shaved head, goatee, and tattoos offer to buy the coat off his back!
Before I go, I have a favor to ask. Joel and I are heading to Florida for a few days of vacation before the baby comes. We are going to be spending 3 days driving the coastal highway from Miami down to the Florida Keys. We are looking for any advice on fun things to do down there – from good places to stop for food, snorkeling, beaches, sunsets, catamaran rides, other activities or even places to stay. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer! I am just hoping I am not to pregnant to enjoy it! I am just entering the third trimester and this is my view of the world.
Joel assures me that I still have feet, but I guess I am just going to have to take his word for it.
