Sproutlings

I know I've been breaking a lot of news around here lately. Haha, not really...I'm just silly and it's news to me. But we've already established that I am kind of behind the times when it comes to certain things, oh well.

So now I have some exciting news. We finally took down our tree like halfway through January and we received a sweet surprise in the corner.

I may have mentioned that we kind of have crappy light from our windows so my awesome calla lily plant died. Mainly because Hal moved it to another window and put the blinds down over it, which killed it. Jerk, he's such a plant killer. haha.

It died such a long time ago though, and this may seem gross, but I just took it out of the window and set the pot in the corner and totally forgot about it. After we took the tree out my lily had sprouted up again! Holy cow I was so excited. Calla Lilies are my favorite flowers. My wedding bouquet was even calla lilies. The first picture is when we found it, when it was just a litle sproutling, and it's grown even more! I'm so excited, I feel like such a success.


Here is another sweet little nugget that happened in the life of sam. I had to go pick up something for my work this week. I had to actually drive down to my old neighborhod. I drove past the street that I lived on through middle school and most of highschool. It's kind of weird to go back there now. I was bummed to see that someone had taken down the trellis my my mom had put up so many years ago.
So when I was going to the house to pick something up I saw the most amazing thing. This old man, literally cruising down the street. He even ran a stop sign in his jazzy, he is seriously hard core. I was stopped at the stop sign that he ran and he totally waved at me. It was awesome. I tried to take a picture of him, but he turned the corner on to my old street before I could so I went after him, and I think he noticed that I followed him because he pulled over to the side of the street and stopped. So I took a picture and drove away real fast. My favorite part, he had flags on top of the jazzy! Oh man, old men are so cool. I have had an inside joke for so long about having a jazzy when I am older and being a crazy old hard core lady, just like this guy. Maybe Hal can see this and take it as a look into our future.

Our tree wasn't taken down until the end of January. Granted, its tiny and fake, but still.
