ooooo gossip gossip

New bundles of joy...but not from my uterus thank God:
Yesterday was quite the day for news. For starters a dear friend of mine had her first baby. It was a surprise pregnancy and while she was half way across the world freaking out I was sitting at my computer screaming with joy because we were both pregnant at the same time. I was very happy she was knocked up surprise or no surprise. Her daughter joined us for life on this happy little planet around noon yesterday and she is completely surrounded by love. Welcome Bella we love you. 

The husband learns to hold hands and sing:
My husband had flown out of town this week for his Grandmother's funeral. It was a long time coming and she is somewhere a heck of a lot cooler than a nursing home now so that is a good thing. But from the sounds of it God seems to know when it is time for families to reconnect. While unfortunate that a death is what needed to happen for everyone to come together to sing Kum Ba Yah, that is what happened. I am sure there was plenty of beer to aid in the singing. 

The Manny screams like a girl on a roller coaster:
And now for the news from our dear Manny. Yesterday was the Manny's birthday. Happy Birthday Manny! But in pure Manny style he decided to take his sweet heart to some amusement park that is so not Disneyland but since they have already been there together I will let it go this time. While on a nameless roller coaster the Manny popped THE QUESTION. And yes I mean THAT question! He had previously warned us and her family that he was twitterpated and wanted to get married and have all the fun that comes with marriage. You know like bills, diapers, mowing lawns, and "discussions."  He has decided it was time to put an end to all this fun dating stuff where everyone has just brushed their teeth and no one leaves the toilet seat up. I am truly happy for him and the soon to be Mrs. Manny.  Plus she has the coolest name EVER. Congrats you two! Look how sickeningly adorable they are. AWWWW!
