Did you know?

Did you know that at Walmart $3.49 can buy you 80 ounces of pickles or a measly 16 ounces?

Did you know that I'm rich and famous? You can tell because I'm gonna fly to Washington to have lunch with a good good friend. Don't judge me. It's free.

Did you know that the first product to have a barcode was Wrigley's gum?

Did you know that even if you do dishes 5 times in one day you can still have a sink full at the end of the night?

Did you know that I miss being pregnant? That's a very strange feeling.

Did you know that the "need to eat ice" is a symptom of not having enough iron in your body? Call me crazy, but I suspect that slurpee and snow-cone cravings count as "need to eat ice".

Did you know that hating the heat is genetic? My grandma always used to say it was "hotter than H in here!" and when someone asked what 'H' was she told them "it stands for Hooper". I think I've referenced Hooper about 9,000 times in the past 48 hours. She also used to say that it was so hot it made you want to run naked down the street. That was the most irreverent thing I ever heard her say.

Did you know that grilling season has finally arrived? (See above references to the heat and the dishes.)

Did you know that I'm not pregnant? Even though I referenced pickles, slurpees, pregnancy and the-no-good-very-bad-heat in one post, it's not because I'm pregnant.


  1. It was 117 degrees yesterday. Uh-huh. Everyday I ask myself "How in the world was I pregnant here?" And I never can find the answer because the heat is miserable as it is. ;)

    But I miss being pregnant, too.

  2. Details on your trip WA please!

  3. You're so funny Amy...LOVE the "did you know" facts!

  4. You ARE rich and famous :) Actually I'm the one that feels famous because my super fantastic amazing friend is coming 600 miles just to have lunch with me :)

  5. "Running naked in the streets" must be a Widdison thing. My dad says it all the time. :p

  6. I have never experienced missing being pregnant. I also don't hate the heat. I also have never flown to WA just to have lunch with my friend. What's that all about anyway?

  7. Lucky you! I'm sure you'll have so much fun with Jamie! I never thought I'd miss being pregnant, but I already do. Something about having the baby with me all the time (and not crying) was a nice feeling.

  8. Did you know Brady grew up in Hooper?

  9. I had no idea Brady was from Hooper! My grandma's family was there (Widdison's I think...) I bet his people know her people. :)

  10. Okay, I want to know more about this fly to Washington for lunch. I've always wanted to do something like that just for fun. :) And I ALWAYS crave snow cones in the summer. I finally found a yummy shack where the ice is shaved really fine (my requirement for a yummy snow cone). If your interested I'll let you know where it is. :)
