(You guys know I'm all about the lame delivery of good news. I didn't feel that this should be any different. Packed full of lameness just for you!!!)
After lunch on Tuesday I decided to check out the CK message boards and see if anything was going on yet. Erin had started a thread that said "SOY calls starting soon!" I hit refresh and there was a new thread that said "Britney's making the first call..."! After staring at my phone for about 10 seconds trying to will it to ring, I decided that it would be best if I just walked away from the computer.
I took Drew in his room to change his stinky diaper and when I've got handful of dirty wipes in my hand this, of all times, is when my phone decides to ring. I jumped so big that I'm lucky I didn't fling the yucky wipes across the room. I grabbed the phone out of my pocket and saw the "801" area code. I knew right there at that point what the call was about. Here's a little replay of what was going on in my head:
"Relax. Don't answer on the first ring. Relax. Calm down. RELAX. Okay, answer it before she hangs up! Oh wait, set down the poop. REEEELLLAAXXXX!! Answer it!"
The sad part was that somewhere in the conversation with Britney I said "woohoo Vegas!" Little embarassed about that one! What can I say...this girl loves Vegas and the fact that this has a trip to Vegas attached to it is fabulous!
I never expected Hall of Fame to happen and then this!! I'm am just above and beyond excited. I can't even wrap my brain around the possiblity of more to come. Right now I'm just too excited to even think about that. I'm just happy to be where I am now.
Thanks to all that where wondering if I got the call! Believe me, if I could have I would have told you!
And yes, I was **SOYfinalist** on the CK message board. lol
Huge CONGRATS to my fellow SOY finalists!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
