What Goes Up Must Come Down


 
 
So this happened the other night.
I'm minding my own writing a blog post when my husband tells me to come outside.
Naturally I run outside, see a hot air balloon, run back inside, grab my camera, and run back outside.
Hot air balloons just scream "grab your camera".
(Did this just make anybody else think of the "hide yo kids, hide yo wife" video? No?)
Anyhow--while I am snapping shots of the hot air balloon going over our house I start to think to myself  "Self. That hot air balloon is pretty low. I don't think hot air balloons are supposed to skim roofs of houses..." and sure enough, that hot air balloon begins it's descent...into my neighbors yard.
Uh oh.
 
Obviously such a production causes the whole hood to run to the scene.
I however preferred to walk barefoot.
On our journey over to see what happened my husband says serious as can be
"I wonder if they are just dropping them off at their house?!"
And for some disturbing reason I didn't think much of what he said until this morning.
This would be the same time that I burst out into laughter at my desk.
 
My husband thought that hot air balloons now offer door to door service.
 
And that my friends, is funny. I don't care who you are.
 
Shawn--In your defense I would say that maybe this does happen. To people like Prince Harry.
Oh wait. I thought we were talking about naked pictures showing up at your doorstep all of a sudden.
 
Nevermind. I have no "in your defense" on this one.
 
Now listen, I know I wasn't supossed to blog, tweet, instagram, or anything about this "moment of confusion" but in the words of the person flying the hot air balloon "Oops!"
 
ps. Unlike this balloon (or my husbands ego), I feel totally inflated right now.
Thanks to every single one of you who have shown excitement in this new book venture I have decided to partake in. One sleepless night in and the process has begun.
Extra special thank you to this girl and this girl for the fabulous emails this week.
I am so blesssed to be a part of this big ole blogging community.
Sometimes it can feel overwhelming and well--deflating, but then bam--ya'll remind me why I am doing what I am doing. Now if I would only stop forgetting that reason every other day we'll be good.
Kidding. I only question it every third day.
 
Now seriously. Who wants to go for a hot air balloon ride? I'll pick ya up in twenty.
Just meet me at your doorstep.

  1. In Albuquerque where we are stationed, there are always tons of hot air balloons. Every year there the biggest balloon fiesta in the world. I have even heard that they carry a bottle of champagne and if they land in your yard they give it to you!

  2. That is hilarious and totally sounds like something my husband would say too. I mean I feel like it's kind of the risk you take though when you fly in something that kind of lands when/where it wants... could be in someone's yard or it could be in the middle of nowhere!

  10. i would so take a hot-air balloon ride on my morning commute!

  11. I would give ANYTHING for something like this to happen in my neighborhood. I am the type of person who hops in my car if I hear sirens that sound like they have stopped anywhere near my house. Your "no shoes" comment reminded me of Dane Cook's comedy skit re: "I was in my house, washing I dish, and then I came out..... shoes?! F**k shoes!" If you don't know what I am talking about, you have to find it.

  13. Now that is hilarious. Haha. Especially what your husband said, because I was thinking the same thing!

  14. That's so funny. I always tell my guys that I want to be proposed to in a hot air balloon. I think the jig would be up though. Oops.

  15. I love how much your blog can make me laugh. Next time an air balloon lands in your neighborhood your husband is going to jump out, "Honey I'm home!!"

    1. My name is Alex Thiama, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken

      marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost

      committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster

      called Dr Oyakhilo, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the

      internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people

      testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure

      cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i

      also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified

      about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony

      she dropped Dr Oyakhilo's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try.

      I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband

      came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Oyakhilo, is

      really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If

      you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your

      problems for you. Try The powerful spell caster Dr Oyakhilo, he is the answer to your

      problems. Here's his contact: oyakhilobhegbelovespelltemple@live.com

  28. Great pictures!!

  29. My neighbor from home (aka second mama) is a hot air balloon pilot. It's so much fun!! But you are at the mercy of the weather and wind... never know where you're going to end up... and never know where you'll land. And always hopeful you land on the ground... safely.

    Great story! Balloons are definitely something to grab your camera and run barefoot around for.

  31. I have never seen a hot air balloon before in my life. Which is actually fine with me because it seems terrifying to ride around in a basket like a puppy... right?

  32. That's pretty crazy! Growing up in NM seeing a hot air balloon isn't all that exciting for me.. but one in the front yard would be nuts! haha

  35. I can't thank you enough for all that you have done for me. About a year ago I my partner split up, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I found your email on a site about what you have done. I requested 1 to 2 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within 3days mark company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived. We immediately reconnected and move in with each other. Our wedding date is set for Summer 2012. Expect to see your invite in the mail!.thanks to upesaspelltemple@yahoo.com

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
