Fear and Sadness had to go, and it would be my job to kick them out...I just said, "Get out," loudly and forcefully, like a true badass, if I do say so myself. "I am not afraid. So get the hell out of my head. Now."2. Kelle made a Dumb and Dumber reference...I just know she and I would get along so well.
3. Hilarious descriptions about the hot physical therapist that works with Nella.
4. She writes about getting overly excited about future plans and how it's fun to talk about those dreams. And it made me think. You know the stupid cheesy quotes (that I probably posted on MySpace more than a couple times) that say things like, "Shoot for the stars" or "Dare to dream?" I think I was a very ambitious child, but recently I really have not liked those quotes because, for some reason I had in my mind that those dreams were supposed to be things like being president or being a famous author or actress or something. And I didn't feel like I had ambitious desires like that anymore. But Kelle's section on page 208 made me think about how, for me, those dreams are really things like being an awesome aunt someday, being a mom, living close to my siblings, and having fun with slash loving my family and friends well. And I realized that those are perfect dreams.
This post was really supposed to be about my trip to Texas, so pardon that long digression. Katie picked me up from the airport and we went to explore Austin for a couple hours! We went to El Chilito in search of the sweet mustache see-saw Cathy told me about. The see-saw wasn't there, which was a huge disappointment, but we got some good (and super messy) burritos. We also went to Amy's Ice Cream and I am a little obsessed with that place now because it was delicious.
He is a babe. And seriously? They know me so well. And on the inside Justin wrote, "Don't waste a wish on being any cuter, because you simply could not be any cuter. Happy Birthday!" What a guy.
