Pst...I have two new followers to welcome!! Hi Ellie and Sandra!! I hope you enjoy your stay!!

Once upon a time, I lived in Brazil

It's true!!

I'm not lying, I swear

My parents were there as mission presidents for our church

The mission president is the one that tries to take care of all the missionaries in a certain region. 

200something 19-21 year old boys? No thank you!!

I'll take the 21-23 year old girls instead. :)

Anyway, when they went down I went to live with them

I'm sure in great part it was to cure me of my crazy, wild, teenage ways ;)
And it worked. I grew up a lot and matured a lot while I was down there

The fact that I have lost that maturity since then does NOT count. :)

Anyway, there would be times that I would get bored, so I got on MSN Instant Messenger and bothered talked to Peach while she was at work

We would talk...I would say things that made her "lol" me...we would "lol" each other...we had quite fun

Or I did anyway...I think she did too...?

This continued on for quite a few months

She put up with me enjoyed bonding with me every day just about...except when we were traveling about the mission

Finally one day we were talking and I said something that made her "lol" me again

I said something like this: "Do you really laugh out loud when you type lol?"

P: "Sometimes. :)"

Me: "Hmmm...we should come up with something for when we DON'T laugh out's the opposite of out loud? In quiet? THAT'S IT!!!! LAUGH IN QUIET!! liq liq liq liq"


Peach, if I got the story wrong, please forgive me :)

So it became our thing for a really long time

I went on my mission, kind of forgot about it, and then one day long after I came home I read something she wrote, but I couldn't laugh out loud because I was at work and all of the sudden it popped in my head "liq!!"

So...for my birthday this year she gave me this:

She said this was the closest she could find with LIQ on it and I loved it

But after that it got me to thinking how I wished I could find a way to get her a mug that said LIQ...but I knew I would never find one...

So I thought and thought and thought and thought...

And all of the sudden it hit me

I could make her one!!
There's this place you can go to called Color Me Mine that's really cool!!

They make all different types of pottery, and then let you paint them however you want, then they fire it for you and you go pick it up all finished!!

I'm not creative in anyway, but I love it so I told Boyfriend that we were going there and making her and I each one for our date night

And this is what we did

That one is Peach's

And that one is mine. :)

It was lots of fun and I'm glad I have Boyfriend to go with me so I don't have to force my friends with me anymore

Wanna see my day in pictures? 

I figured you'd say yes. :D

Hope you had a good Saturday!!

Ooo I like the Dr. Pepper and peanutbutter M&Ms!

That is cute with the mugs too... how they are opposites. Very creative. :)

I love the mug story and the mugs. I like Peanut Butter M&Ms too. I tried the pretzel ones the other day and was so disappointed. Remember the crunchy ones-- those were great. Looks like you have fun with the boy! :) happy day.

Dazee Dreamer said...

Baby Sister said...

@ jayaycee - Huh. I had never thought of that. Maybe one day. ;)

Noelle said...

In my memory the liq was because mom and dad would be in bed when we chatted. : ) I could totally be wrong though!

Your mug story is fantastic! Beautifully cute, they look together!! Love the "i" in liq.

Day in pictures made me finally see Dr. Pepper. I am swallowing hard.

You know? Just getting to hold another hand like that and feel loved makes love seem worth it sometimes. :) My favorite pictures are those hand ones. :)
