Coco's Crossing State Lines Sooner Than Later ***Updated***

And, Blake is mentally preparing.

Upon asking for her flight info, he was very specific about when she leaves on Sunday. When I asked why he needed the details, his reply was, "Because I want to make sure I have ample time to bail you guys out of jail and get her to the airport."

Nice one, Blake.

So, our plans:

I'm sure we'll indulge in a cocktail or two.

And, we're taking a day trip Weston, Missouri for some shopping. I love this town.

We'll be child-less. Not one kid with us. Or near us. I will not respond to any person who says the word, "Mom". I will not wipe anyone's booty on this day.

And, since my darling husband is taking off a day of work so that we can get out of town, he will be rewarded nicely that evening. With steaks. And, more cocktails. And, possibly another rendition of Coco's Single Ladies dance made famous on her winter trip to Kansas City. Remember this?

Saturday morning, we're taking the punks to the city while Blake manages our garage sale. (Yes, it's an inconvenient time with company in town, but you get way more traffic if you do it with the neighborhood.)

It's a toss up as to who wins the prize here.......selling old crap to strangers and those weird "garage sale people" or dragging the kids out for the day to keep them busy.

We'll be home in time to make ourselves look even prettier than usual for Sass's wedding. Blake has two dates that evening......Coco and me. So lucky.

He better be getting us corsages.

Back to the city we'll go to see these two get married.

I know. They're cute in that love-you-but-kinda-want-to-kill-you way.

Can't wait to see her darling family and especially her sister, Katie. If you're new to this blog, I babysat Sass and siblings when we were young. We lived down the street from each other in Texas. And, now we all live in Kansas City. And, we're friends. Weird how life works out.

I'll try to post pictures here and there of our weekend. But, I have a feeling it's going to be a whole lotta:

And, then Coco did this.

And, then Coco did that.

So, perhaps we'll take some random, unexplainable pictures to post and then you can figure it out. Here's to one of them not being Coco making a fool of herself (and me because I'll be laughing) at Sass's wedding!

Received a text around 10:30ish from Coco saying she might have a bloody mary on her layover.

Received a call an hour and a half later from a random DFW phone number....message said...."Missed my flight.....don't arriving at such and such time."

Blake's thoughts on the situation?

"This is not a good sign."


Blake said...

Not so fast! You had better bring some wipes with you on Friday. As you all may recall, Coco has mentioned some 425,572,158 times that she suffers from Sharters Syndrome.

Carrie Darney said...

Blake, to some she may be in SHARTERS annonomous...but you may have just outed her..or I did. Speaking of shart, there was this one time that I

Moni said...

Poor Blake! Okay, I just realized who Sass is....she is one of the little girls that lived on Apple Valley that you babysat? Okay, I feel really old now.....

starnes family said...

Yes, Moni! Katie is married, too, and teaches Spanish. Sam is in college. I babysat them for years.....loved those kids. Who are now adults!

Save it, Carrie!!!!

I so knew that one line would bring a stream of jokes.

The Soladay Family said...

Blake totally stole my line. i can't believe you don't think you'll be wiping any booties just because you're kids won't be there. Just saying that makes me happy that I don't have to wipe any little booties anymore.


Unknown said...

Have a super weekend! I look forward to the follow-up!

Kristen said...

Blake's comment has me in tears... hahahahaha.

And what an amazing weekend you have planned!!!! Cannot wait to hear the stories and see the pics once it is all said and done!!

Have a blast!!!

Blake said...

This just in...Dumber of 'Dumb and Dumber' just missed her flight. The airport bartenders are makin bank today!

aunt caroline said...

Oh, I wish I was there with you gals! You're going to have such a great weekend! LOVE WESTON! Feel free to pick up some votives for me - or better yet, let's go when I'm in town.

Dee Stephens said...

One word for your weekend?? SHENANIGANS!!
have a blast! Can't wait for pix!

The Soladay Family said...

Holy Bloody Mary....I suggested a BM....that would be Bloody Mary, Coco, not bowel movement...but I thought maybe one. Possibly 2. Not like 6. She probably got caught up teaching the whole bar the Single Ladies dance and lost track of time.

Heather said...

Oh my word..... I'm just saying.... if she has too many... she won't be allowed on the plane at all. I am cracking up! CAN NOT WAIT TO HEAR ALL ABOUT Y'ALLS ESCAPADES!

FROGGITY! said...

just make sure y'all don't mix the sharting, the single ladies, AND the cocktails all at once... that could get messy...

one at a time. pace yourselves...

;) have fun!

Moni said...

In Coco's defense, they are backed up at DFW because of weather turning bad....Dave's aunt is going to be late getting in. Maybe it was one of those situations where her flight arrived too late to catch her connection? Just trying to help her out....the good news is, she will have more time to drink in the airport bar...maybe that is a bad thing.

Hattie said...

Baaaahahaha! Y'all are going to have a blast. Can't wait to hear and see all about it!!!

Carrie Darney said...

"stream of jokes"

Speaking of stream...I totally have another shart story. There was once a girl and she ate

Sara said...

This can't end good.

Blake - I hope you have a flask in your desk at work. You may want to go ahead and take a few swigs of that. You're gonna need it.

Becca Jane said...

Have fun! I get a girls-only, kidless trip next month and I CAN'T WAIT!!

The Luis Family said...

Oh my word this is going to be one heck of a weekend. It seems to be already starting off with a BANG!

Poor Blake ... at least he has a great sense of humor!!

Have a great time! Can't wait to hear all about it!

merrilee said...

Sounds like a BLAST! Wish I were going with you to that darling town. Have a ball, and I will be checkin in often for updates. Ohh--and are just WRONG!

timmonstimes said...

You gals have fun now you hear! I think that goes without saying :)

The Rand's said...

Enjoy your weekend!

Jodee said...

It looks like Blake is going to deserve husband of the year award after this weekend!

Enjoy your girls day out! I can't wait to hear all about it!

donatelli98 said...

I am LMAO! Sucks not being able to read your blog at work. Results in me reading late at night after several cocktails - oh wait that is good right? Have fun with Coco ... not like we would expect anything less!

Kristen said...

This is beyond awesome... I am loving your weekend updates.
So glad you got that cat print for Sweet Caroline...

And your Dateline scenario cracked me up. Glad you survived!!
And those chicken fingers are making my tummy rumble.... yum yum yum yum!!

Glad Blake is surviving!!!
