Getting ready for MckMama's visit!

***** disclaimer ***** this entire post should be taken tongue in cheek!!! Meant only for laughs!!!




I'm in such a rush.  I have to get everything ready.  You see, I am getting a very special visitor soon.  Any minute really.  She said she'd be over in 20, but we didn't really discuss the EXACT time she'd be leaving, so, yeah, 20 minutes from who knows when, she could be here.  

You see, I commented on her blog yesterday... well, I do EVERY day that she has a new post.  She had the most adorable Zoom book she was showing us.  Her book was filled with all 4 of her MSC's (many small children or my small children).  I couldn't help but think that her book was so cute, (really, really cute) because she has mad photography skills and she took all the amazing photos of her kids.  Of course she was also giving a book kit away for commenting.  

Now I wasn't entirely sure I had the whole concept down for the contest, so I sought clarification from her and this was my comment yesterday:" Whats that you say? You'll come shoot super fun adorable pictures of my kids and turn them into a book as cute as yours? And I'll sit and hold Stellan and entertain MSC's while you work? Well shoot, count me in!"

Now with over 1200 comments, what are the chances she is 1. going to read all of them and 2. take the time to reply... Let me tell you when she says she reads all the comments... SHE REALLY READS ALL THE COMMENTS!

I know this because this was what she emailed last night, "why yes, vicky, that's exactly what i said! all right if we're there in 20 minutes?"

My jaw dropped and at the same time I flew up out of my chair... until I remembered. Well darn, I knew she lived in the midwest, but by car 20 minutes would be a little bit of a stretch. But I am not easily deterred. So I sat back down and replied "20 minutes should do it, do you have enough jet fuel for the plane you'll need to Minnesota?" And she wrote back yet again...

Now, I wasn't really sure when one of us would be completely stumped by the other one (or when one of us would have to go take care of our Mckmiracle baby)... but knowing MckMama (well, only her blog persona really) she is sooo clever I figured I'd bow down before she would...

But I'm not really sure either one of us expected this outcome? It seems that my visions of her living in either Michigan or Wisconsin, were a bit off. Actually, she assured me, she so wouldn't need to fly to see me, since really she is quite near!  

And I couldn't help but wonder if MckMama had read Angie Smith's post yesterday in which Angie wrote about discovering that one of her blog acquaintances (who she ran into at Starbucks), lived  precisely 3 MINUTES from her house! 

So, MckMama, I ran out this morning and got some steel cut oatmeal and threw it in the crockpot with some ground up flax seed.  The eggs are on to boil and there are fixin's for pizza later.  I'll just be sitting here watching our the window for you.  Oh, and one other thing, I'll let YOU bring the breastmilk!  'Kay? See you soon!  Can't wait!

  2. Okay Robin, since you are the SECOND person to take me seriously, I've revised my attempt to be tongue in cheek! I so thought everyone would see right through her sense of humor and mine... I was sooo wrong. So sorry, I would never intentionally deceive anyone!

  4. Kaleena,

  5. That was fantastic :) I've let her know I'm super annoyed at the idea there might be a little planned get together for her bloggers, and with me not being able to travel... well... it's just not nice.

    BUT, since y'all are so close in proximity and all, I'm thinking you'll be going to whatever get together she might have up her sleeve. In which case you have to squeeze her around the neck for me.

    Well, uhm... I mean... if she doesn't stop by your house first, that is.

    ;)

  6. I don't know Gitz, she hinted yesterday that she was not saying it'd be in the frozen tundra... Hmmm...

    But yeah, when she shows up, I am so calling her out for you! And if I get to go, you and I will put our heads together to figure out some way of including you! Can't forget my Gitzen Girl!

  7. (Saying things in a tongue in cheek fashion gets me into trouble sometimes, too...but of course I was completely tracking with you on this one!)

    Okay, so maybe I won't really be there in 20 minutes...but you might want to still leave a light on for me. Just in case.

  15. Too funny.... when she gets there tell her you want to make a band, and put her kids on Rock Band and let'em go....

    Tongue and cheek that is.

    LOL

    But she is having a meet and greet thing in the near future I think, so maybe you will get to actually meet her.

  16. Misty, I thought you would get a "kick" out of this as I know you love her like I do! Now wouldn't that be a hoot, the MSC's rockband!

  17. Robin,

    You know, I'm thinking since MckMama is offering to meet someplace warm, I may hold out for that afterall... and we just have to figure out how to include Gitz?

    Lilly,
    I even forgot about the contest considering how much fun I was having with her :)
