Post 96: Significance of the Snapshot

And the answer is...

My parents came to visit on March 18th!  Now, before you assume I am out of my stinking mind (which, for those of you who know me, you understand that I am most definitely out of my mind), I will explain how a picture of a barbecue represents my parents' visit.  They came as a surprise to me on Friday, March 18th!  Travis fooled me into thinking that a friend of his was coming to New York and needed a place to stay.  Therefore, I knew that I needed to clean the house to prep for his "friend".  I am very thankful that Travis told me to clean; I think I would have pummeled him if he had allowed my parents to show up at our home when I hadn't had a chance to make sure it was ready for them!

Therefore, Friday, after I came home from substitute teaching, I began helping Travis clean the rest of the condo.  (Travis was home that Friday because he had stayed up way late the night before and hadn't gotten too much sleep.)  At one point, whilst cleaning, Travis claimed that Susan (our beloved neighbor- I just adore her!) was at the door wanting to talk to me.  At this point I am thinking, "Why right now out of all times?!"  Don't get me wrong... she is super sweet and wonderful, but I was rushing to clean for Travis's "friend" for goodness's sake!!!  As I rounded the corner and approached the door, expecting to see Susan, guess who came trompin' through the door!

Santa Claus!

...Sorry, just wanted to make sure you were paying attention.  It was actually... MY PARENTS!  Yayyyyyy!!  I have been surprised three times in my life: my 16th birthday party, my engagement, and this visit.  My jaw dropped to the wooden floor (still trying to get the splinter out of my chin).  You know that look people give you when they are thinking, "Ha ha!  We win!"... yeah.  They got me.

"But Brittany," you say, "What does this have to do with a barbecue?"  Weeeeeelllllll, I am SO glad you asked.  However, first I must correct your use of a conjunction to begin a sentence... you know that is a no no.  Tsk.  Now, to answer your grammatically incorrect question, this has to do with the barbecue because my parents were super duper (oh yeah, I said it) generous and bought us a barbecue for our condo.  We were grateful and stoked!  Travis barbecued that night, and it was deeeeelicious!

Okie dokie!  Ready, set, gooooooo:

Okay, okay, so I know that it isn't a "snap shot" per se, but it is a screen shot.  Does that count?  Guess what?  You don't have a choice!!!  Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!


  1. It stands for "What Would Ferrets Cdo?" (the "c" is silent)?

  2. You are such a dork- but that is why I love ya! =] Hehe! I need someone that can match MY dorkiness! LOL!

  3. P.S. I just thought you should know that I think you are insane... Now that I have put that little known fact out into the blogosphere, I have decided to put all of my comments into one. I have been catching up on your blog today since I haven't been on in a while.

    1. I am so excited that you are teaching Art. Are you having a ball? Those shamrocks were really cute.
    2. The story about Travis' hair is so funny! that sounds like something I would do should I ever have the courage to try to cut Austin's hair (and if he would let me) :P
    3. BBQing is the best! We have already broken out the grill several times since it has started warming up.
    4. W.W.F.C? When Will Family Come? LOL I have no clue... I tried to think of something really clever and funny to guess, but it didn't work.

    Blog with you later!

  4. Oh Kelsey, the people of the blogosphere already knew that. Haha! I will respond in the same organized fashion (hehe!):

    1. I am having a blast! The kids love getting messy and learning how to create fun projects! Thanks, I thought so. =]
    2. LOL! You should go for it! You can save a lot of money that way. However, if Austin's hair actually gets "cut" and not "shaven", then good luck! I personally wouldn't trust myself enough, but you could definitely do it with some patience and practice!
    3. Yeahhhh BBQing! I love it! I make the sides, and he can take care of the meat. Winning combo!
    4. You can find the answer in the newest post- enjoy! =]

    Hope to see a new blog from you soon! Thanks for the comment!
