This week has been a pretty hectic week. I left Idaho last Saturday (the 18th) and made my way to Kenosha, Wisconsin. It's been several years since I have been to Wisconsin, in fact the last time I was here was when my father passed away almost seven years ago. It was long past time to go visit my family and boy am I glad that I have. Unfortunately I've been seeing so much of my family that I haven't had a lot of time to post on the blog, my deepest apologies. I promise I'll have lots to write about and pictures to show you but for now I'll leave you with one of my favorite times so far:
Yesterday while at my grandma's house she tells me she thinks we should go get OUR noses pierced. She literally blew my mind! I would have never guessed my 74 year old grandmother would want to go get her nose pierced. So we decided to go to Racine to see if we could get it done. My cousin referred us to i ov thee dragon tattoo. I'm sure glad she did too as the place was supremely clean and sterile and the piercer (Johnathan) was very gentle and just an awesome guy.
Anyway, my grandmother walks in and marches right up to him and tells him she's there to get her nose pierced. He google eyed her for a minute, looked at me and says "Both of you?!" She says "Yup, both of us!" He quickly recovered from his shock (haha) and got down to business. Now let me tell you, I was more nervous than my grandma to get my nose pierced. I have six tattoos and I've gotten my ears pierced, multiple times, as well as my tongue and never had an issue. However a couple months ago I was getting a tattoo and saw my first nose piercing done. The girl screamed like she was getting murdered in the chair. It completely freaked me out so when my dear ol'granny recommended we get our noses done I was a little skeptical. So I made her go first. She breezed right through it nary a flinch or scream. I figured if she could do it than I could do it so I hitched up my big girl pants and got it done. It was one of the best moments I've had with my grandma and just seeing how excited she was afterwards made it all worth it. So now we have matching nose rings and pretty soon we're going to get our birthstones to replace the diamonds we have currently.
I leave to go home in just a few short days so I'll make sure to post some pictures and more stories of my family adventures in Wisconsin when I get back. Until then, Cheers!
