fortune cookies.

Photobucket

sean had these delivered to me yesterday morning while he was still in wyoming. he is too good to me. i never think to do things like that. my idea of helping him out is throwing his clothes in the dryer. and leaving them in there for 3 days until he decides to fold them. or taking his poptarts out of the toaster before they burn too much... or not leaving the gas tank completely empty for him.. or at least leaving one square of toilet paper on the roll for him so he isn't left stranded....

anyway... yesterday was my dad's 50th birthday! happy 50th dad! you still look 30 to me! ;) we went up to Salt Lake and had dinner at one of his favorite places. it is called david's kitchen. it was delicious. we all got fortune cookies after. i was expecting mine to say something awesome like, "you are going to win a million dollars soon." or "stay how you are, you are awesome." or "you are pretty." (my sister got that one once) or "a great suprise is in store for you." but instead i got "to do nothing is to be nothing."

ummm... what? fortunes are supposed to be so cool and awesome aren't they? not a slap in the face. i don't want to hear the truth! i like doing nothing. i don't like setting high expectations for myself. and i don't like when others expect a lot out of me. because then when i don't do them i don't feel so bad. and if i do them? i feel awesome. because it was unexpected. so i guess that makes me nothing. and i am sure i took the fortune way out of context, but whatever.

haha... fortune cookies aren't supposed to make you feel BAD! stupid. and LOVELY flowers! you have a good man! :)

Alexa Mae said...

p.s. remember in high school when after every fortune you would say "in bed." i still do that sometimes to the lame ones. makes them sound better...or worse.

Alexa Mae said...

how sweet of sean! those are gorgeous! i love fortune cookies too. when i get lame ones, i get mad and throw them away. but when i get ones i want to hear, i keep them. hahaha

Emma Jade said...

Yeah what kind of messed up fortune is that!? What on earth!

So sweet of Sean and Moses to give you flowers =-)

Your flowers are so pretty, and that's so sweet that he sent them to you while he is out of town. See, he does awesome things like that, and I bet the thinks the things you do for him are awesome too, they're just more practical, and guys are practical, right? Fortune Cookies have gone lame on us! Half of the time they're not even fortunes. Dumb. David's kitchen? Hmm, I'll have to check it out. I'm guessing it's chinese food since the fortune cookies?

OMG! that is TOO cute :)

Ams said...

That is terrible! I agree... fortune cookies should be good... not rude like that!
I am glad that Sean is feeling better... what a sweet manfriend you have :)

Mary Cee said...

I love fortune cookies... except its always such a disappointment when you get a lame message. One of my favorites was when my sister got one that said, "You will soon get new clothes."

Jenni said...

I once got a fortune that said "You will have a party" My response: Dont mind if I do!

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

you know, the last few fortune cookies i've gotten have had messages like that. i don't want to be told to change my life, i want to be told that my life will change for me because i deserve it!

Jennifer said...

haha! you are such a good writer. And fortune cookies are fun! even if they say stupid things, that aren't even remotely related to life at the moment :)

kelly ann said...

sometimes... fortune cookies can be real douchebags, let's be honest. i still love them, but they can say the dumbest things!

aaww happy birthday to your dad!

Rasha said...

The flowers are adorable!

the fortune cookie is so so so funny.

Annie Kennedy said...

Those flowers are too sweet :) I'm glad he was feeling well enough to go.

That fortune cookie story made me laugh. I usually keep all mine in my wallet. They are definitely supposed to brighten your day! (They do brighten it a little more if you play that "in bed" game :D...come on now, don't tell me Alexa and I are the only ones!)

Chris and Mari Spiker said...

Sean is so sweet! What a doll. And you deserve it lady, fortune cookie or not :)

the hopkins said...

Cute. cute. cute. You have such a great husband Chloe, he is soooo sweet to you. I hope he is feeling better.
And oh my heck I could not stop laughing at your fortune cookie. That is way too funny. I love your outlook on not setting high expectations for yourself ha. I think I'm going to start doing this so I feel better :)

Summer {Bisfor...} said...

this was such a sweet gesture. he loves you both soooo much! who doesn't?

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Aw, those flowers are too sweet!

Michael and Mindy said...

How sweet is he? Love the flowers.
And how sweet of Mosey to add his name to the card.

Love the fortune. Classic. Did you remember to add "in the bedroom" at the end? So really, it said "To do nothing is to be nothing in the bedroom." haha. That makes it all teh funnier.

Becca said...

You should write the fortunes for the fortune cookies, if all of them are going to be stupid and disappointing like that. Ha ha ha...
And Sean is a sweetie to you, that's so great. Is he feeling better? Things are going okay now? I'm still praying for you guys.

Hope your Friday is wonderful!

Becca

Emily said...

It was fun seeing you yesterday! We really do want to see that cute mosey!

That fortune cookie was crap. But not as bad as my family's all time favorite fortune cookie: "That wasn't chicken."

EEeeeeek!

Michael and Mindy said...

love your new header! ah! i wish i could come up with interesting stuff for mine! love, love it.

hope you're had a good night. thanks again for your help. you're awesome :)

Alyssa said...

I hope that fortune cookie writer was fired, thats just down right depressing! no one needs to hear that after a good meal!

And Sean is adorable, how sweet he sent you flowers whilst he was away!

Michael and Mindy said...

i can't even say enough how much i love your new header. in the last 12 hours it's changed like 24 times, and i LOVE this one! so cute!!

Michael and Mindy said...

i am so confused. my list says you updated? but you didn't? maybe it's saying it because of your new header or something??

Lindsey said...

Sometimes fortunes are annoying and so not what you want to see, ha ha - but don't give it a second though pretty lady!

And love those flowers . . . so sweet! Enjoy them! Fresh flowers is one of my all time fav things!! Have a great weekend!!

M.M.E. said...

What a wonderful husband you have. I agree about leaving one square of toilet paper. That says love to me. :) I hope you get a better fortune next time! My brother once opened one that said, "You are surrounded by fake friends". So at least yours wasn't brutally honest.

Maddie said...

LOOOVE your new header chlo!! maybe, just read your fortune as "to do nothing is to be AWESOME". there you go, problem solved :)

Michele said...

What a cute hubby and puppy!
