Our Tropical Vacation

100_7212

When Clay and I got the invitation to go to Pioneer Woman’s Lodge for a weekend we decided to take our time driving down to Oklahoma.  We figured it’s the closest thing to a vacation we are going to get until that big monkey-sucking-debt monster is sliced, diced and charbroiled.

We stopped for lunch in a cute little town about an hour down the road.  We both wanted to eat something local and in the downtown district when we saw this little sandwich shop we decided to give it a shot.  I had to laugh at the tropical theme.  But if you’re pretending to be on vacation, might as well pretend it’s a tropical vacation, right?

Also, it was a good idea that we didn’t go to a finer establishment, because it’s been a while since I’ve taken Clay out in public.  He’s lost a bit of his dining etiquette.

And I forgot to pack his bibs.

For crying out loud Hon, we’re in public!  Remember when we used to go out to eat?  Remember how we had to use our manners?  And napkins?  And pretend to be normal?  Hon?  Clay?  CLAY!

CLAY!  YOU DID NOT JUST FALL ASLEEP EATING THAT SANDWICH ON OUR TROPICAL VACATION!

Huh?  Wha?  You talkin’ lady?  Sorry, just nodded off, the sound of the waves and the fresh ocean breeze is so relaxing…here in Kansas.

Let’s go over how we need to act once we get to the lodge.  Okay?  Now, you will need to act like the really smart architect with tons of talent and then mention how I’m the best cook….no wait, maybe we shouldn’t talk about cooking.  Okay, I’ve got it.  You say how I’m really organized and know everything there is to know about blogging…in fact just say I invented blogging.  Clay?  Are you listening to me?  Clay?  Clay?  CLAY!!!

How many more years do I have to endure this?  Oh, well.  Look, I got new shoes to wear to the beach!

Hey, you ready to get on the road?  I think I might have sunburned my belly.  Man, that sandwich was good.  Hope that Pioneer Lady’s food is decent.
