Good Fortune

I didn’t get a chance to take any photos for Theme Thursday today, but if I have to skip one, this is probably a good one to skip. The theme is winter, and well, you don’t all need to be getting any more jealous of our winter.

Today was a balmy 72 degrees, sunny. Beautiful.

But do make sure to stop over to Stacy’s to see everyone else’s winter wonderland shots.

I do have about twenty zillion stories and photos to share, but I am swamped with working on a major project that is due soon and already feel guilty enough just trying to post photos and keep caught up with all my friends and family. Soon…soon…I promise!

Just a fun little game for today before I head out to tackle work, though.

Almost every weekend we go to Pei Wei, one of our favorite places to eat. It is the cheap version of PF Chang’s, just really yummy Asian food. And Emma’s job is to pick out fortune cookies for everyone. A few weeks ago I got a great one that read, “You and your spouse will spend many happy years together.”

Totally appropriate! I loved it. And then promptly lost it, of course.

The weekend before last she picked out these fortunes for us.


The crazy thing is that they all really did fit the person that ended up opening them.

See if you can guess which fortune goes with whom. Keep you busy while I try to get through the mountain of work and chores that are piling up around here. And maybe we’ll make it a little contest and I’ll think of a fun prize.

    I copy Kimmer.

    I have one stuck on my flip up thing here at work “you will make a name for yourself” I also have a Dove promise stuck here (you know, the message inside the individual wrapped pieces of Dove chocolate. That one says “Be mischievous. It feels Good.”

    Okay, I will give you a pass today, since, yeah…your “winter” isn’t really winter. 😉

    We love Pei Wei, too! We have one really close to us here. What do your kids like to eat there?

    Let’s see:

    Addie (a)
    James (b)
    Emma (c)
    Carrie (d)

    I’m going to second Stacy – although I swear I decided before I looked at her answer!

    I thought they all described you, Care.
    However, if I had to assign them one to each of you, I think Kimmer knows you as well as I do, cuz the order she picked is “Ed Zachery” the same as mine.
    “Ed Zachery” is an old Chinese joke some will remember, but if not you’ll have to ask me.

    I’m in agreement with Kimmer…. Carrie, Jamie, Emma, Addie.

    I’m skipping out on the winter theme, too. Not much winter to speak of here!
    What cool fortunes! Honestly, I could see any one of those applying to any one of your family. But my guess is
    a. Carrie
    b. J
    c. Addie
    d. Em

    I happily escaped winter by flying home Tuesday. It isn’t warm and sunny here, but it is mild and rainy, still better than freezing and snowy.

    My guesses are…
    A- Carrie
    B- Addie
    C- Jamie
    D- Emma

    I’ll have to check out Pei Wei, we have one near us. Kinda down the road but near enough.

    As for the fortunes, Hmm.
    A Carrie
    B Addie
    C Emma
    D James

    That’s my take and I AM SO QUALIFIED to make the guess!
