I have a good friend named Julie who currently lives in Japan. Nate and I always laugh about Julie because I always have really funny stories that revolve around her. I have to share one on my blog because it still makes me laugh outloud. Her sister threw her a baby shower when she was pregnant with her second child. It was at the sister's townhouse and all these friends were there. At the shower, they played a game that I won so I got to pick out the gift from a little pile of wrapped gifts. I picked out a box that was wrapped so nicely and opened it to see that it was a frame! I told Julie's sister I was so excited (I truly was) to get a cute frame and I proceeded to open the box. You know how frames usually have fake photos of people getting married, new babies, etc?? Well this frame had a photo of a bride with a bridesmaid. I said to Julie innocently without thinking anything - "this looks like your sister doesn't it?" Julie started laughing so loud becuase it was her sister and it was a REGIFT from a wedding party gift that her sister never opened to see that the Bride put in a photo of them in it!
Another funny Julie story is that her mom - who is Japanese - told Julie that she wished she could be in Japan to welcome her home when Julie moved there last year because Julie's husband Jim was stationed there.
Funny thing is that Julie's mom had never even been to where Julie was moving!
I don't know if they are as funny written down as when we talk about them to each other. Maybe you just have to know her...
