Oh happy day!!

Today is going to be a good day.

Never mind that I just spilled half a cup of coffee on my dry clean only jacket and I’m going to be meeting a room full of strangers later today while wearing a stained jacket. Never mind that.

Today is going to be a great day.

First, I’m getting my haircut. And all the curls said, “thank you Jesus!”

Then, after work, I’m attending my first TweetUp. A TweetUp is kind of like a blogging get together, except for people who use Twitter. I have no clue what to expect and I’m more than a little nervous, but I’m looking forward to seeing a few local girlfriends who I know will let me cling to them if I start to feel lost.

But that’s not why today is going to be awesome.

Today is going to be awesome because AFTER I get my haircut, and my eyebrows waxed and my social media groove on, I get to pick up my brother-in-law from the airport!!

Hes going to kill me when he sees this picture. Heh.

He's going to kill me when he sees this picture. Heh.

It’s his first visit and I am beyond excited. Jeremy is my kindred spirit in every way. We rival for black sheep status and have intellectual boxing matches. He is, without a doubt, as much my brother as he is Jared’s. Well, except for that whole blood relation thing.


I’m stoked.

Everyone in the house is stoked. The kids have been counting down the days and even Jared has been extra perky. And today he’s finally getting here.


Its like hes not impressed or something.

It's like he's not impressed or something.

  1. I’m totally jealous of your day – eyebrows, haircut AND a tweetup? GAH

  2. Faiqa says:

    I love picking up family from the airport. Especially family that I *like*. :)

  3. RiceWenchie says:

    I went to my first tweetup last year and made some excellent friends. Have a wonderful time with your fresh haircut, manicured eyebrows and visiting b-i-l! :o)

  4. Sounds like a great day! I’m SO jealous. I’m still in my pjs and watching Little Einsteins with my sick 3 year old. Not sure how I’m going to get my work done w/him home.

    Have fun :)

  5. Finn says:

    Have fun. And few cocktails for me, please.

  6. Enjoy. Hope he has a great stay.

  7. Airborne says:

    An eyebrow wax… pour moi? How flattering.

  8. Kristin says:

    YAY! Who doesn’t love Jeremer!
    Have a great time with him while he’s there. Oh, and good luck with all your other things on your to do list today!

  9. MariaV says:

    Have an absolutely wonderful day, Britt.

    That last photo is priceless.

  10. Dawn says:

    Have an excellent time!!!!!!!!

  11. B.E. Earl says:

    A Tweetup sounds naughty.

    Have fun!

  12. Elisa says:

    Yay! Love it when there is another black sheep around ;-)

    Oh, and I’m sorry, but the only one of those foods I might eat would be the cheese biscuits. Hey, I’m Italian and yet I eat NY-style pizza and Asian food, but that’s about as experimental as I go ;-)

  13. Sarah says:

    Have fun!

    I’m sure you will be too busy having fun to even remember the stained jacket anyways.

  14. I’m so glad he’s your brother, too! My BIL? Well, we would probably kill and eat each other if left alone in a dark closet.


  15. NYCWD says:

    Sounds like a jam packed fun filled day!

    I can’t help but notice the omission of work… so is this a day off or are you “working from home”?

  16. avitable says:

    It’ll be an awesome week.

  17. hey darlin” yay!!!!!!!!!!

  18. muskrat says:

    I’m going to my first TweetUp next week! I’m totally going to drop trou in front of everyone’s blackberries.

  19. tell brother in law that i am single. and wonderful. and only 37 1/2.

  20. martymankins says:

    What a cute photo of you two in front of the Christmas tree.

  21. TSM_Oregon says:

    Hope you had a BLAST at your outing and the visit with your Bro!

    I’ve missed you! Hey, did you ever completely quit smoking? I don’t think you want to know my answer to that question. *sigh*

    Anyway, take care!
