The Worst Thing!

My mom did an engagement photo shoot with Kanye and Bella on Monday! 
He actually looks kind of hopeful and in love in these pics, right?!
My mom's going to make them a cute little veil and top hat combo and 
I'll dust off my Minister badge and we're going to get these two hitched! 

Last night, D was having the WORST NIGHT EVER! Quick story.

One day last October, D was having a horrible, terrible, no good, very bad day. We were getting ready to go to the Margarita Society Charity Ball in Dallas and it was just one thing after another. We finally make it to the hotel and we're getting ready and he walks to the closet where his suit is hanging and what does he find? His jacket. No pants. And it is just the last straw. And he balls up his fists, shakes them in the air and yells "THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN!"

And I knew better than to laugh out loud. It was too soon. We've all had those days. But it was instantly SO funny to me.

He immediately comes to the conclusion that now we can't go to the party. As I was standing there in a ball gown, this was not an acceptable option for me. I finally talk him in to shelling out a ton of cash for a replacement pair, on the fly, and we're going to be LATE for the party. He then walks by the closet, keys in hand, ready to head to Men's Warehouse and notices something. On the floor. His pants. They had just slipped off the hanger.

It took a few weeks but now we laugh and laugh when I shake my fists in the air and say "THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN!" when we find out the movie we wanted to see is no longer in theaters or we run out of milk.

Well, last night D had a bad day at work AND had to work late. "THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN!" Then, he noticed a dent in his brand new grill and decided the 5 hours he spent assembling it were for naught and he'd have to return it. "THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN!" His watch he sent in to get fixed comes back broken in a different way and he'll have to send it back again. "THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN!" He paid his bills. "THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN!"

Just not a good night for him. POINT TO MY STORY!

He reeeeally really wanted comfort food. He said he would be happy with either a thin crust pepperoni pizza or Rosa's bean burritos. He did NOT want naked burgers anymore now that he couldn't cook them on his grill.

But I said NO! NO SIR, DARYL! Well... I said it more nicely than that. I gave him lots of kisses on the cheek and played with his hair and babied him for a minute... because that's what you need after the worst day ever. BUT! I kicked so much tail in my spin class at lunch, ate rabbit food, drank coffee sans sugar this afternoon... I was not about to blow it on delicious, delicious flour tortillas. But I worked late too. And I was exhausted from no sugar or carbs. And it would have been so wonderful to spend 20 minutes in the Taco Tuesday drive thru lane instead of 20 minutes making naked burgers.

But I made naked burgers anyway! This is a big deal, you guys. This is what my version of dedication to a goal looks like. Having D giving me a free pass to eat my favorite food ever and instead hitting the kitchen, sticking my hands in cold ground sirloin, mixing up the naked burger stuff and cooking them in a skillet with a smile on my face. Then plopping down on the couch and watching some old episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Which, turns out, is the trick to making D feel better. You can always count on Larry David to have a worse day than you!

Here's the link to recipe I used for Naked Burgers. Super easy. Didn't include the onions and used ground sirloin instead of turkey because that's what we had. They were really good.

Hope everyone made it to hump day safely and the rest of your week flies by!
