Nathan has a four day weekend this week. We are taking the first two days to be together, sleep in, and finish painting our living room. We shipped the kids off to their Noni and Poppi's house yesterday and actually got 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. It was beautiful. When we got up this morning we decided to have brunch at the local cafe.
Now, we live in a small town. A small hick town. Small like no stop lights. Just a yellow blinky one. I would love to say that the cafe is as cute as Luke's from Gilmore Girls. But it's not. It is definitely a decent place to eat and the owners are sweet and wonderful. But it fits the town it's in.
When we went to breakfast there were only a few people there. At the table across from us were four guys. One was old enough to be the other three's dad. They were the type of guys you totally expect to see in a small backwoods town. Cut of chew in the bottom lip, dirty baseball hat and all.
When they went to leave they almost forgot their caps/hats and two of the guys came back to grab them. The younger one asked the older man, "Why are we leaving all our stuff here?" As they passed our table the man replied, "Because we're civilized and take our hats off when we're in the house."
I, of course, started to giggle. One: They looked like they could be related to Larry the Cable Guy! And two: we were in a restaurant not a house.
After they left I looked at Nathan to give him that "did you hear that?" smile and I realize he's wearing a hat! The guy was talking about Nathan! We both had a good laugh about it.
I know I'm prejudice because he's my hubby, but he's more civilized than I am most of the time. And he's hot!
I told Nathan this was definitely blogging material even though he doesn't like me to talk about him on here. I also think it's a perfect time for some of my favorite pics of him.
Swimming with the kids.
Singing in the car.
Fishing with Abiah. Note the hat. But he's outside so it's okay.
Rocking the babies.
