“Wanna know how I got there?”

“Wanna know how I got there?”

This has become a little game I play with my husband. You see, I am the queen of random conversations that appear to come from waaaaay out in left field. My husband has come to just roll with it, as always.  But now that even I have to laugh at the random conversations-from-nowhere, I’ve devised the following game:

“Wanna know how I got there?”

Here’s how it works:

I make the random comment/conversation starter.

My husband looks at me, smirks, but let’s me finish.

Then, I ask: “Wanna know how I got there?”

To which he always laughs and says, “yes” (indulging me everytime)

So let’s play, shall we? Here goes:

Me: I’m not going to the Cathe Road Trip this year.

You: Huh? I thought you were trying to be the first to register?? What happened?

Me: Wanna know how I got there?

Alright. So, the MAIN purpose of going to the Road Trip this year was to catch up with my favorite blog friend Heather, hopefully her sister and of course my sister (maybe both!). But, after an email from Heather about an hour before registration was set to open, she brought up an excellent idea. Our very own “road trip” together to our lake house in Maine this summer. She would come up with her husband (maybe her sis) and we’d spend the time together relaxing, working out (because c’mon, this is US we’re talking about here), swimming (er splashing) in the lake, cooking and drinking some fantastic wine.

Does that *not* sound awesome or what?

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE the Cathe Road Trip. It’s an awesome time spent with fellow Cathletes and a weekend with my sister I’ve grown to look forward to more and more each year. But we’re both facing a fair amount of travel this year as it is, and with my other sister and the little one (Isabel, the cutest niece ON the planet), I’d rather spend the time closer to home this summer. And maybe Heather can meet the cutest niece and my other sis too. Best of both worlds if I do say so myself.

I’ve already dubbed this weekend: The crazy, strong and loving (wine) weekend (a throwback to the Cathe Forum we belong to: “Crazy, Strong, and Loving it”).

Has a nice ring to it, no?

So there you go – that’s how we got there. Not all that random once you hear the pieces all come together. My husband still thinks I”m nuts though…but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 😉


With that, I’m off to disconnect for a couple days. It’s a long weekend (wee!). We’re going to Boston for the night for a romantic night in the city (gotta love Rue La La deals on hotel rooms and for special hair treatments beforehand with the sis!).

I’ll be back later this weekend with a belated Core Fusion Challenge week #3 recap and maybe, just maybe, a little giveaway too! Happy weekend!!

  1. In all fairness to the “Wanna see how I got there” game this is not that random. Usually we go from doing the dishes to needing a new pair of shoes. And it usually involves about 15 steps including but not limited to things like soap, target, Jolene, vacation, until we finally end up at the shoe store. The funny thing about this whole thing is that once she spells it out, it all makes perfect sense. At least in her mind anyway!! I just go along for the ride!! It works for us and the adventures haven’t stopped in over 10 years.

    • you are a riot babe. And I can’t deny anything you’ve said here…it is so very true, and so very random. But at least I make you laugh…even if it’s AT me half the time 😉

  2. I’m sitting here grinning like a damn fool. I’m sooo excited! So we need beach towels made huh?!?

    Oh, and I have a habit of just randomly throwing out a convo like that too. We don’t ever play the how I got there, I’m not sure Jason always wants to know 😉 But he does humor me LOL.

  3. LOLOL!!!! YES!! I love Scott’s comment ALMOST as much as the game itself 😉 So true. I do this too, clearly. And tonight oughtta be a frigin blast as we will clearly have at least one random conversation or laughathon that the boys will clearly have no idea what we are saying 😉
    HEATHER! I can’t wait for our wine weekend!!!! 🙂

  4. Nice plan for your weekend to go to Boston today. Enjoy! That’s a good decision you’ve made instead of going on the Cathe road trip, you can have your own road trip adventure! You can suit yourselves, chill, drink vino and workout. Just as well I’m not going on the Glassboro trip because I wouldn’t have been able to meet up with you guys.

  5. Great quirk, and great idea! Sometimes it’s best to so things on your own terms. And the wine and workout weekend sounds like the perfect way to do that.

    Hope you enjoyed Boston!
