An Explanation.

I have a post that is long overdue. Some very sweet, thoughtful, fabulous, and really gorgeous bloggy pals have sent me very sweet, thoughtful, fabulous, and really gorgeous stuff over the past week and a half. In a random encounter at the mall last week I actually met a bloggy pal in real life! So much goodness!!!

I must tell you about all of this. I need to tell you about all of this.

Instead, I am spending my evening without my children, who are currently getting their way over at Memaw and Papaw Bill's house tonight. They'll bunk with Kristi, who--at the ripe old age of 19--will probably let them stay up all hours, and feed them M&Ms and Coke mere seconds before bedtime. And this is OK. My girls love their "adopted" grandparents and "big sister," so who am I to keep them from an evening of revelry?

Since my girls aren't here, my husband has made a request for the evening. I must go and be a good wife now.

Let's keep those thoughts pure, my dears. We have 2 hours left in Return of the King, and he can blast his subwoofers and tweeters and whatevers as loud as he wants, since we are sans children. These are the big plans for the night.

And Seriously? An evening snuggled up with my man, while watching Aragorn, is just what I need. It's my Christmas gift to myself.
Aragorn Pictures, Images and Photos
The important, pertinent blog stuff will have to wait. Y'all understand, right?

Thanks and much love.
XOXO

Trish said...

of course I understand........

you love him more than me.

I'll get over it.

Rhea said...

Dang, girl, you're livin' it up tonight! Woohoo!!

Shannon said...

Wait a sec... I thought "Death Race" on Blue-Ray was your gift to yourself ;)


And I kid. you. not. Shane and I have done the same thing when we've had a kid-free night! We've got the super-bonus-extended-director's cut-versions of all three LOTR movies. Not too long ago we decided to have our own little Hobbit marathon. But over 11 hours of Frodo and Co. is too much at once... at least for me, anyway. We've had to spread it out a bit...

Elena said...

Don't forget Legolas with that long flowing hair. H.O.T!!! (That's one of the very few men I like long hair on.) Have a great night.

Amy said...

You take all the time you need. Hope you had a lovely night.

CaraBee said...

Oh girl, I need one of those nights. I don't even remember what it was like to play the tv without worrying we'd wake the bebe. Sigh. I hope you had fun! Pure thoughts, pshaw.

Caroline said...

I know what you're doin'.

Remember Sunday? Yep. That's what I thought.

Live.Love.Eat said...

Oh Viggo, how I love thee. Ya know, it's a good thing we didn't grow up together because how would we have divvied up the boys we both liked?

Sounds like a great evening!!!!!!!

Melissa said...

You know you just made Shelly's year by posting about her man Viggo.
Proverbs 31 wife...all. the. way.

niiiiiiiiice...hope you have a great night!

Mama Dawg said...

We totally understand. And, no offence, but right now, I'd rather see that pic of Viggo.

However, after I've gotten my lust on with that pic, I'll gladly read whatever you have to write. Even if it's the phone book.

Denise said...

Hope you had a great kidless night with your man! What's it like to be momentarily kidless? My world may never know.

Mrs de Miranda said...

In all my purity and innocence, I must say, I hope you two thoroughly enjoyed yourselves! hehehe

Heather said...

An evening in the man room, snuggled up to your hubby versus blogging...

I know what a tough decision that was for you.

I'm glad Scotty won.

Hope it was a good night.

Britt said...

I hope you did more than watch LOTR .. =-)

And is it just me, or does Aragon look a bit .. sparkly .. in that picture?

Ashley said...

Have fun 'snuggling up' with your husband!!!

Merry Christmas and Feliz Navidad from Colombia!!

heathersister said...

Serious, he finally is watching LOTR? Yeah Scotty. You must let me know if he likes!

ParentingPink said...

Awww! You deserve a night with your hubby. I love it when my parents take the girls for a night or two. It's so important for our marriages AND our hubbies :-) Enjoy your evening ALONE :-)

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Mr B and I were going to watch a movie... whoops.

sassy stephanie said...

Love me some Viggo. M..mmmm!

Jen said...

we all have needs and it is good to fulfill those needs. Hope you all got what you needed. ;)

Kimberly said...

Oh man, just when I thought I've seen the hottest picture of him ever... you come up with an even hotter one!

Brandy said...

Hey you know we will be here whenever you're...ahem...done. Enjoy!

scargosun said...

Sigh

I love me some LOTR.

Swirl Girl said...

aaah- what?

I was too distracted by the sweaty tan guy to pay attention to what you said.

Veggie Mom said...

But of course, my dear!

Mama Kat said...

We all know what you were really up to...such a little slut.

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

We watch LOTR every Christmas season. Since when is it a Christmas movie? I'm not sure...Hmmm.

Hope you had a great evening!

Julie said...

Enjoy ;)

Gina said...

Whatever.
Like Mr. Lula is even half as important as all of your imaginary friends.

Kat said...

Michael and I had a date night. Watched Burn After reading. With my mom. Does that count as a date night?

And I tried to not giggle when she asked "what is with the Pillow?" about George Clooney carrying around his liberator...

Cause I didn't want to explain how I knew what it was. At least not to my mom :-)

sticky said...

Sounds like a great night. My hubby would have a similar request...sigh.

Have a lovely holiday...

Heather said...

Oh, just look at dear Viggo. So delicious, but I'm all up into Legolas. It's the pointy ears and the bow.

angie said...

Sounds like a great gift.......:)

Now, about that pertinent information.....sounds like a fun read!
