so like i said, i was super excited to meet these fantasmic ladies. i felt like the new kid the night before the first day of school....all kinds of nervous. i agonized over my hair and makeup and what to wear. i changed austin's clothes twice...but that was beecause he spilled baby oil all over his shirt. lol and i added more anxiety when i showed up thirty minutes late! eek.
see, what people don't know is that i'm actually pretty shy in real life. [because the interwebz is fake?..lol] on here i can say things and am super witty and funny [at least i think so], but in person i tend to stumble over my words and end everything with "yea...*head nod* so....". it's really awkward. i'm the creepster that hangs out on the side and listens the conversation and then laughs really really loudly at the punchline of a story...even if it wasn't that funny. or i might laugh at something that wasn't meant to be funny... all in all, i'm just really awkward. so i was worried.
but it all was for nothing! the ladies were super nice and welcoming. and austin, bella and i had a blast. we went to the point defiance zoo and..get this..only saw a few monkeys and a tiger. lol but austin was more interested in running around anyway so i don't think he minded. and bella slept the entire time so i know she didn't care!
