Seth asked Chloe to marry him today…
(note: they both have the same taste in footwear.)
They both decided in order to get married, they needed to be dressed up…
but, when it was time for a nap…Seth decided the marriage was over. Chloe didn’t seem to mind.
In other news. Legolas and Arwen made a temporary truce, especially when it comes to stalking something they can never have…mainly the birds flying outside the window.
I know this is a short lived truce. I am just glad they found common ground.

So, John has wanted a new car for about….7 years now. It’s not that he hated his Jetta, he just hated VW and all that he had to go through every time his car had issues. And, he has had his car for 10 years now. Yes, John and I were still newly dating when he showed up with the Jetta. Before that he had his super fast Talon. I have to admit, when we first starting dating, I really liked the fact that not only was John sexy, smart, and sensible, but he had this “devil may car” street racer in him. However, the Talon wasn’t always the most economical car. And our relationship was somewhat long distance (as in, he lived in Fort Collins, I lived in Denver and we only saw each other on the weekends.) The first time I knew he was really serious about our relationship was when he showed up in his Jetta. He didn’t tell me he was going to get a new car, he just said, “I have a surprise for you.” I have to admit, the gesture was not lost on me.
We were both a little sad when John sold the Talon. It was the end of an era, and it was John’s nod to being a responsible adult. However, neither of us were ready for him to truly lose his need for speed, so when he brought up an interest in motorcycles, I was on board. John is always responsible, considerate, and hard working. But, one of my favorite aspects of him is his love of all things fast and mechanical. I love books, movies and tv. John loves automobiles and motorcycles. Taking those away from him would be like telling me I wasn’t allowed to watch TV. I do think the world would actually cumbust.
John finally decided, after all this time, that he knew what kind of car he wanted down to the color of the exterior, interior, and everything in between. So, when he asked me to drive to Maryland to pick up the car, there was no way I was going to say “No.” Luckily, Chloe rocks with the road trips, and still amazes me with her patience. So, all we climbed into the Jetta, with Chloe’s fancy new booster chair (she finally outgrew the car seat) we drove for three hours, each way, to get John his new car.
It was totally worth it. Not only is his car fast, pretty, and everything he wants. But it is comfortable, has enough leg room in the back for passangers, and it sounds really cool when he speeds up.
Dun ta dun….
