Photo Story Friday #2

Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "OH MY GOD! Is that Corey Feldman with our beloved Kelly??" Why yes, yes it is. Before you get too insanely jealous, let me tell you a story about the picture. Before I do, though, Yes, I am aware the photo is pretty rough. It has definitely seen its share of cubicles and grubby, admiring hands. Don't hold it against me.

When Zac and I were dating, I surprised him with a ticket to an 80's concert for his birthday (which is TODAY, by the way.) He was turning 26. It was Flock of Seagulls, Ric Ocasek from The Cars, Berlin (still rocked) and a "surprise guest." Imagine MY surprise when the surprise guest was MY favorite 80's actor. I mean, The Goonies alone could make you fall head over heels for this 'talented' actor. Add in the Lost Boys (filmed in MY hometown) and you have the complete package.

So, after Corey's concert (apparently he thinks he can sing sings), it was announced that if we bought his CD for 10.00, we could stand in line and meet him. Well, I didn't care whose birthday we were celebrating, I was gonna meet COREY FELDMAN! So, my wonderful boyfriend stood with me in line for an hour (he likes to say it was 2, but he's wrong. Sometimes I compromise at 1 1/2 hours) to meet him. In line I met a girl who said, "Oh my God! What are you gonna say when you meet him??" Gosh, I hadn't thought about it. So, I came up with a really good one-liner. It HAD to be good since I had loved him since I was 13 and by this time I was 24. So, I get up to the front. I say "Hello" to Corey and then I say, "Corey, I have waited 10 years for this moment." He looked at me adoringly with those big brown eyes and said in his raspy little voice that I love SO much, "Awww, I'm so glad you waited." Now, I'm not sure if he really was glad I waited or if he thought I was "special" so he was just being nice. Either way, I got the reaction I'd hope for. And after all that, my boyfriend still loved me, even married me. Not to say he doesn't make fun of me, ALL THE TIME, for this experience. Good thing we both have a sense of humor!

And, believe me, Zac went up a couple notches on my "coolness" meter, too.

Happy 35th Birthday to my awesome husband, Zac. I love you more than Corey!

*Oh, and just in case you missed the first season, The Two Coreys will air its Second Season (I mean, the first season was SO good, how could they not be picked up AGAIN?) on Sunday June 22nd. See the A&E website for the full schedule!*

My morning of affirmations

Kendall sits next to me and says, "You're the bestest mom ever and I'm always gonna keep you." "And you're not fat." Hey, kid, thanks for throwing in that last part. I was beginning to worry you were trying to boost myself esteem since I'm a cow.

Nolan has pneumonia. Took him to the doctor yesterday and it was confirmed. So, he is laying low for a few days (yeah, try the whole "limited activity" with a 6 year-old boy!) I have been sleeping in the guest room with him for a few nights now to help him when he coughs all night. He says, "Mom, can you sleep with me again tonight?" I told him I miss my bed and I really want to sleep with my husband tonight (get your minds outta the gutter, people!). He then tells me, "Oh, Come ON, mom! It's not like HE's gonna miss you." See how much my kids love me??
