We kept our change of plans to move to Michigan a secret from everybody, mostly so that I could surprise my sister Kelly in Toledo, Ohio when we drove right by her house to get to Michigan.
Background yet useful information: when Kelly chose to move to Toledo, Ohio and said to me, "but Kady, now you'll have somewhere to visit!" I very seriously but also very mean mean meanly told her that I would "never, ever come to Toledo" to visit her. I think that hurt her feelings. I was just trying to get her to realize the error of her ways. Come on. Toledo?
And I meant to hold up my end of that bargain, which I've done without any effort for the last four years. My current job situation left me no choice, however, and boy was she surprised when I was at her door!
|Sylvie and Edie. Having nothing to do with each other.|
|Niece Karley, who I could have sworn was just five years old yesterday.|
|The ole butt pinch pelvic thrust sister hug|
OK, I teared up a little there. Awesome!
I'm most amazed by how clean her house is, is it really like that at any given moment?!
I keep watching the video over and over again and reliving the moment. You were here and now you are gone.
Josette, I still can't believe it myself. It couldn't have been a better day. I work from home and 364 days out of 365 I'm still in my robe when I sign off work at end of day. I never do my makeup and hair. I keep looking at the pictures of house, going wow, there is nothing in the pictures to incriminate me.
Oh and creepy starers, help a girl out. I'm hoping for 100 comments. Lets show Kady how much you love her blog of Toledo Ohio and hopefully she'll come back again soon.
Please more. Of Kelly that is.
I've never loved the blog more since this post!
I told Summer to exPect to see Kelly in her pajamas and the house a wreck.
Boy did I have egg on my face. Thanks a lot Kel.
Totally awesome blog man. I've never really seen anything interesting on it tell now. Looking forward to your next visit to Toledo.
I've always viewed Toledo as an 8th wonder of the world. Now that you've posted this, I don't have to wonder about it anymore. Thank you Kady!
BTW you and Summer can now consider yourselves, trolls. Yoopers in the Upper Peninsula refer to those, from the Lower, as the trolls under the bridge. :)
So cool. I'd like to be part of your family for a day. (From a safe distance.)
I googled "best blog post ever" and this was truly the best blog post ever.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA dbs! I'm one of Kady's sisters - the oldest. My husband has been a (reluctant) member of my family now for amost 25 years. Once he said to me, "Of course I like your family, Kim,.......
.....one at a time."
Kelly - We'll be there (for the first time) in December (but only overnight, because we'll be on our way to New York)!!
My husband is also fond of saying he got the pick of the litter...pan.
Yes my wonderful and loyal blog followers, if Kelly gets the 100 comments she is hoping for, I personally pledge to visit her again in Toledo, provide her with free dinners out during my week long visit, a case of her favorite wine, and I will finally admit she is the favorite daughter.
Good thing for "Kady Hexum" her wonderful and loyal blog followers ain't gonna fall for it.
I'm falling for it. More more.
Yeah me too. More more.
Go Kelly Go Kelly Go Kelly
This is awesome. We love give aways! Give Aways! Give Aways! Give Aways! Give Aways!
Kelly, you are cracking us all up. Signed, Everyone.
Yeah, why should we continue to read this dumb blog if there are no give aways. Give Aways! Give Aways! Give Aways!!!
I've always said everyone is very intelligent. Go everyone! Go everyone! Go everyone!
Awesome. Very heartwarming.
P.s. please offer giveaways.;)
I see Ryan Gosling ain't gettin no comments.
This is a beautiful and heartwarming blog.
I was laughing so hard when...
Kelly came twirling into the frame...
And I love your sunglasses...
And Kelly's house is very cute!...
And so is your niece, although it's clear she thinks you guys are nuts.
I love you Sarah!
100 Comments here I come.
I'm certainly not adding this comment only to reach my goal of 100 comments.
However, I am becoming painfully aware that in my old age I have mom's fading eyebrows. As evidenced in the close up photo of me.
For any concerned readers, I will take action, and fully intend to purchase the necessary beauty products. Any suggestions?
Kady take me with you to Kelly's. I can help you drink her case of wine.
I would keep posting more comments in my support for Kelly, but I have to go to the bathroom really really bad!
Kelly, you look exactly the same as last I saw you. Lovely! I notice you highlight your hair. Are you getting grey hairs at all? If so, check your eyebrows. You may want to dye your eyebrows because they get grey too. On Friday (Oct. 28), Dawn would have been the big 40. I wonder what she would say. What did you say? Of course, I don't want to give away your age. Love Auntie Cheryl.
Auntie Cheryl! You are the fairest of them all. Yes very gray. Great suggestion. I hate the idea of another step in the morning. Dying them is way better then having to fill them in with makeup.
So hard to imagine Dawn being 40! I feel so old.
Kelly just shave them off....
....and get eyebrow tatoos!
It would be easier.
I think unlike Auntie Cheryl, somebody doesn't have my best interests in mind.
But my word verification is deless. Does that mean deless is demore?
Does that apply to eyebrows?
Honestly the comments on this post are more hilarious then the posts themselves.
Have been wanting to say so but didn't know if I was alone in thinking that.
No you are right there with the rest of us.
Is anyone else offended by all these comments? I have been a faithful follower of this blog and her own sister isn't even one.
Agree. Kady is better than all of this.
So true, she posted a beautiful tribute to her sister, who obviously is an ungrateful snot!
Hey, get a sense of humor.
Some of you people can't even spell
I'm sure they are just typing fast, and then notice later.
Speaking of typing, do you remember our typing teacher in Ifalls? We had the same one, a generation apart. She will remain nameless. Remember her eyebrows how she shaved them off, then painted them back on about 1/2 inch too high and very arched. I thought she looked like Betty Boop. Always was one of my favorite teachers. Love Auntie Cheryl
She always was a decade or two behind in her fashions, but I always loved her 4 inch stiletto heals.
I couldn't remember. Went back to the yearbooks and yes, oh my word I can't believe I forgot.
I once took a test that rated me as shallow, is this why I can't remember significant people in my life?
Hey, is there a way to get this blog post moved to the top of your blog? I was reading about this blog post in US Weekly. Having to scroll down past the Ryan Gosling stuff to find it was rather annoying.
Are we there yet?
Hey Jude! Thanks for the support. Sorry your post didn't get as my comments as mine has. Maybe it's the beret?
It looks like you have a LOT of support for visiting your sister again. If this happened for the 1st visit I can't wait to see what happens after the next one!
Maybe she could answer the door in the nude this time !
Ew that's gross. No way
I would consider it if I were you.
No absolutely not that is disgusting!
No now drop it
No prob, Kel. I just may have to throw in a complementary beret when this gets to 100 comments.
Jude, mind yo business!
Kady, if you don't follow through with visiting your sister again, providing free meals that week, bringing a case of wine, and admitting she is the favorite daughter...I WILL NOT be happy with you.
Kelly, you're welcome.
Uncle Lionel has left the building.
So close yet so far away.
You do realize I was talking about the young hotty who answered the door.
I thought that was obvious.
Chị Kady, I sorry about the experience you had on my bus.
Tuy nhiên, nếu bạn không làm theo thông qua với lời hứa hẹn của chị Kelly, tôi sẽ bắt đầu công ty sửa chữa của riêng tôi ở Troy và lực lượng tất cả những người khác ra khỏi kinh doanh.
Chị Kelly, chị có sự hỗ trợ của tất cả Việt Nam!
THANK YOU. YOU KIND. YOU HELP. NO SPEAK YOU LANGUAGE.
Kelly it looks like your going to make your 100 comments.
Wanted to show our support. Michelle and I love this blog!
Dang it, I spelt my name wrong.
Justin & I also would also live to show our support!
Been following since NOLA. Sorry we missed you when you were in town. Would of loved to have met you.
Oh and before I forget Michelle wants to know when you'll be visiting Toledo. We stop in periodically and would love to meet.
She'll be reading.
Can't wait to hear more from Toledo! Great stuff! Keeping you in mind for a spot at my new network OWN.
I don't know that Stacy has heard of your blog so I think it's safe to tell you if things don't work out between us I'll be keeping track of where you are.
George is that you?!
Love to show my support also. Big fan of Toledo and this blog!
Would love to sing my hit "Super Bass" with you at a Karaoke place I love there. Keep us posted as to when you'll be back.
Been so busy with my new hair cut after Footloose, haven't had time to check in.
Love this blog. You and your sister are adorable!
I totally know how that goes Julianne.
I've quit smoking and I've gained a few pounds. Staying in to avoid photos has given me time to catch up on Kady's big adventures.
Make sure you get all caught up, more to come from Toledo if all goes well!
Noticed it's close. Wanted to get in on the action and show my support.
I'm sure you've all seen the photo of me being too short for the toilet. Funny thing is I was reading Kady's blog at the time. LOL
I'll rejoin the Backstreet Boys if you get your 100 comments!
Not to busy with our new dog Baylor to miss a post. Keep them coming!
Before it hits Twitter I want to show my support of your blog and announce here that Aston & I are getting a divorce.
Wow, thanks for all your support!
Just 1 more comment is all we need!
Who's it gonna be?
Ta Da! What do I get? Is this a contest? How about a postcard of Kady? Or Not? Love, Auntie Cheryl
Congratulations, Kelly! You finally did something with your life!
the REAL Kady Hexum
p.s. I see your case of wine and raise you a Redcoat Tavern Burger of your choosing.
Auntie Cheryl, if you want a postcard, send me your address!
You can email me -- email@example.com
Kelly, your "deless is demore" comment is SO MOM.
Kim -- it's hilarious that John feels that way when he married one of the saner Hexums.
Davin -- I've always considered Summer a troll.
dbs -- ...and we'd like to frighten and confuse you
maleejo -- you missed my one and only giveaway. So far that is.
prettiest sister -- remember that time I told you I deleted those Skype pictures I have of you on the toilet (because you forgot about the video on our "phone call")?? I lied. I will never delete them.
Jill -- you must know about a certain Facebook scandal.
Barack -- wow. I'm so honored that you took time out of your busy schedule running the country to check out my blog. Please see my well researched political views under the heading "Kady Stupid"
Jude Acers -- I'm sorry that I hate your beret.
Kerry -- I might boycott Ohio forever after this.
Oprah -- I can't. I am a meter installation technician with a company based in St. Paul MN and simply don't have time for producing my own show on your OWN network. I'm very sorry.
Demi -- come ON. Hot tub scandal? LEAVE HIM.
Ryan Gosling -- Yes, yes I will marry you.
Buchard -- NICE NAME.
Brad and Angie -- it could have been good times.
Kelly I just had my eyebrows dyed. It changed my life. For one week. And then it faded.
I read that faded out eyebrows has something to do with the thyroid and that it can be a symptom of both Hashimotos disease and Sarcoidosis.
I'm not kidding.
Kelly, were you excited to see twenty-one extra comments? Did you think they were all from twenty-one different people?
Love you Kade! You got me. Wish you coulda seen my face when i saw 120. Really can't wait for your next visit.
Course with these eyebrows might not have shown on my face.
Kady those skype pictures better not get into the wrong hands!
Kelly if you go for 200 comments maybe she'll have to come twice.
Don't you all think you should get back to work....or something?
You might all think this is funny KELLY but did you ever stop to consider who you're pushing out of first place in the largest number of comments?!
Hanna, you do have the option of one-upping her here.
So sorry Hanna! And the thing is I did give it a thought. It was like taking candy from a baby.
This is the first time my comments exceeded my page views. How the?
So who do I send a lice-infested beret to?
