"She's a super freak, super freak!"

She's a super freak, super freak
She's super-freaky, yow
Super freak, super freak

You know this song? It's me. (Not the rest of the song, just this part!) I am a super freak. So yesterday I was at Costco doing some shopping for Tate's bday (today!) I am loading the boys into the car and it is so disgustingly hot that I start the car before I get them in so that the AC can cool it a little bit. I shut the door, walk around to get in, and the door is locked. Both doors are locked and the boys are inside. It is 1 in the afternoon and 110 degrees outside. The car is on, and the AC is on, but my AC sucks until you have been driving like 10 minutes and then it feels like it is working. So I stop this lady walking by and ask her to stand by my car while I go and find someone in Costco that can maybe help. A manager comes out to the car with me and he calls the fire department. Meanwhile, Tate is totally oblivious to everything, and thinks that since he is alone in the car that this is the perfect opportunity to try and open all the food. Tanner is crying, and his cheeks are getting all red like he is hot. Periodically Tate will reach over and try and put Tanner's binky in his mouth like a dutiful brother. This goes on for what feels like FOREVER, and then two police cars and a fire engine come barreling down the way with their lights on. I see the police car and I get a little worried because I don't have Tate's car seat with me, it's in Chris' car. So Tate was just strapped into the seat belt. I'm thinking, "Great, I am going to get a ticket too." Two minutes later the door is open and it is actually cooler in there than I thought. So I take the boys out and kiss them all over their sweet red cheeks, and feel like a complete jerk. Looking back, I actually remember hitting the lock button when I was getting Tanner in the car. And no, I didn't get a ticket.

I told you. She's a super freak, super freak
She's super-freaky, yow
Super freak, super freak.

July 10th: National Cow Appreciation Day

In honor of National Cow Appreciation Day (brought to you by Chick-fil-a) there was this fantastic opportunity to get free food. All you had to do was dress like a cow.  Here's my little cow Tate:

I talked some of my family into going with me for lunch. What a lovely herd, eh?

There is an awesome pool near our house that does a free swim every Friday night from 6-8, so for date night we went with some friends to the free swim, and then came over to our house and got ready to go to Chick-fil-a for dinner. Note the udder on Mike (in the middle) haha. 

I loved it. And then I went to 7-11 the next morning and got a free slurpee. (They give away free ones on 7.11) Last weekend kind of reminded me of when I was at EA and my room mates and I would basically go anywhere or do anything for a free meal. We would have been all over this Cow appreciation day!  I hate to admit it, but it was a little fun being back in that groove.
Do you love Chick-fil-a?(See my poll) They always seem to have some pretty fun stuff. Chris went yesterday and said that this week is customer appreciation week, and when you dine in they actually seat you at a table, (complete with tablecloth) take your order, etc. Clever. Delicious
