Surprise!!

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!





Kelly

Sylvie and Edie.  Having nothing to do with each other.

Niece Karley, who I could have sworn was just five years old yesterday.

OK, I teared up a little there. Awesome!

Josette said...

I'm most amazed by how clean her house is, is it really like that at any given moment?!

Kelly said...

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.

Kelly said...

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.

Bill said...

More. More.

Vivian said...

Yes more.

Fabio said...

Please more. Of Kelly that is.

Millicent said...

More

Constance said...

Yes. More.

Creepy Starer said...

I've never loved the blog more since this post!

Kady Hexum said...

I told Summer to exPect to see Kelly in her pajamas and the house a wreck.

Kady Hexum said...

Boy did I have egg on my face. Thanks a lot Kel.

Cy said...

Totally awesome blog man. I've never really seen anything interesting on it tell now. Looking forward to your next visit to Toledo.

Davin said...

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. :)

dbs said...

So cool. I'd like to be part of your family for a day. (From a safe distance.)

Fred said...

I googled "best blog post ever" and this was truly the best blog post ever.

Kim said...

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)!!

Kim said...

My husband is also fond of saying he got the pick of the litter...pan.

Kady Hexum said...

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.

Kady Hexum said...

Good thing for "Kady Hexum" her wonderful and loyal blog followers ain't gonna fall for it.

Sigmond said...

I'm falling for it. More more.

Hubert said...

Yeah me too. More more.

Chance said...

Go Kelly Go Kelly Go Kelly

Terrance said...

This is awesome. We love give aways! Give Aways! Give Aways! Give Aways! Give Aways!

Everyone said...

Kelly, you are cracking us all up. Signed, Everyone.

Mildred said...

Yeah, why should we continue to read this dumb blog if there are no give aways. Give Aways! Give Aways! Give Aways!!!

Kelly said...

I've always said everyone is very intelligent. Go everyone! Go everyone! Go everyone!

maleejo said...

Awesome. Very heartwarming.

P.s. please offer giveaways.;)

Kelly said...

I see Ryan Gosling ain't gettin no comments.

Sedrick said...

This is a beautiful and heartwarming blog.

Sarah Lindahl said...

I was laughing so hard when...

Sarah Lindahl said...

Kelly came twirling into the frame...

Sarah Lindahl said...

And I love your sunglasses...

Sarah Lindahl said...

And Kelly's house is very cute!...

Sarah Lindahl said...

And so is your niece, although it's clear she thinks you guys are nuts.

Kelly said...

I love you Sarah!

Kelly said...

100 Comments here I come.

Kelly said...

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?

prettiest sister said...

Kady take me with you to Kelly's. I can help you drink her case of wine.

prettiest sister said...

I would keep posting more comments in my support for Kelly, but I have to go to the bathroom really really bad!

Anonymous said...

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.

Kelly said...

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.

prettiest sister said...

Kelly just shave them off....

prettiest sister said...

....and get eyebrow tatoos!

prettiest sister said...

It would be easier.

Kelly said...

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?

Betrice said...

Honestly the comments on this post are more hilarious then the posts themselves.

Kedra said...

Totally agree!

Jed said...

Right on!

Henry said...

Have been wanting to say so but didn't know if I was alone in thinking that.

Daisy said...

No you are right there with the rest of us.

Gerd said...

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.

Jake said...

Agree. Kady is better than all of this.

Jill said...

So true, she posted a beautiful tribute to her sister, who obviously is an ungrateful snot!

Jared said...

So true!

Patience said...

Agree!

Kelly said...

Hey, get a sense of humor.

Roger said...

Some of you people can't even spell

Kelly said...

I'm sure they are just typing fast, and then notice later.

Anonymous said...

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

prettiest sister said...

She always was a decade or two behind in her fashions, but I always loved her 4 inch stiletto heals.

Kelly said...

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?

Giselle said...

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.

Jude Acers said...

Are we there yet?

Kelly said...

Hey Jude! Thanks for the support. Sorry your post didn't get as my comments as mine has. Maybe it's the beret?

Kerry said...

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!

Burchard said...

Maybe she could answer the door in the nude this time !

Kelly said...

Ew that's gross. No way

Erhard said...

I would consider it if I were you.

Kelly said...

No absolutely not that is disgusting!

Harvey said...

Please

Kelly said...

No now drop it

Jude Acers said...

No prob, Kel. I just may have to throw in a complementary beret when this gets to 100 comments.

Uncle Lionel said...

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.

Hall & Oates said...

So close yet so far away.

Burchard said...

You do realize I was talking about the young hotty who answered the door.

Erhard said...

I thought that was obvious.

Harvey said...

Me too

Kelly said...

Whatever

Vietnamese bus driver said...

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!

Kelly said...

THANK YOU. YOU KIND. YOU HELP. NO SPEAK YOU LANGUAGE.

prettiest sister said...

Kelly it looks like your going to make your 100 comments.

Barak said...

Wanted to show our support. Michelle and I love this blog!

Barack said...

Dang it, I spelt my name wrong.

Jennifer said...

Justin & I also would also live to show our support!

Brad and Angie said...

Been following since NOLA. Sorry we missed you when you were in town. Would of loved to have met you.

Barack said...

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.

Oprah said...

Can't wait to hear more from Toledo! Great stuff! Keeping you in mind for a spot at my new network OWN.

George said...

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.

Stacy said...

George is that you?!

Nicki said...

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.

Julianne said...

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!

Jen said...

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!

Ryan said...

Noticed it's close. Wanted to get in on the action and show my support.

Jessica said...

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

Kevin said...

I'll rejoin the Backstreet Boys if you get your 100 comments!

Selena and Justin said...

Not to busy with our new dog Baylor to miss a post. Keep them coming!

Demi said...

Before it hits Twitter I want to show my support of your blog and announce here that Aston & I are getting a divorce.

Kelly said...

Wow, thanks for all your support!

Just 1 more comment is all we need!

Who's it gonna be?

Anonymous said...

Ta Da! What do I get? Is this a contest? How about a postcard of Kady? Or Not? Love, Auntie Cheryl

Kady Hexum said...

Congratulations, Kelly! You finally did something with your life!

Sincerely,
the REAL Kady Hexum

p.s. I see your case of wine and raise you a Redcoat Tavern Burger of your choosing.

Kady Hexum said...

Auntie Cheryl, if you want a postcard, send me your address!

You can email me -- kady@aladyrevealsnothing.com

Kady Hexum said...

Kelly, your "deless is demore" comment is SO MOM.

Kady Hexum said...

Kim -- it's hilarious that John feels that way when he married one of the saner Hexums.

Kady Hexum said...

Davin -- I've always considered Summer a troll.

Kady Hexum said...

dbs -- ...and we'd like to frighten and confuse you

Kady Hexum said...

maleejo -- you missed my one and only giveaway. So far that is.

Kady Hexum said...

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.

Kady Hexum said...

Jill -- you must know about a certain Facebook scandal.

Kady Hexum said...

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"

Kady Hexum said...

Jude Acers -- I'm sorry that I hate your beret.

Kady Hexum said...

Kerry -- I might boycott Ohio forever after this.

Kady Hexum said...

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.

Kady Hexum said...

Demi -- come ON. Hot tub scandal? LEAVE HIM.

Kady Hexum said...

Ryan Gosling -- Yes, yes I will marry you.

Kady Hexum said...

Buchard -- NICE NAME.

Kady Hexum said...

Brad and Angie -- it could have been good times.

Kady Hexum said...

Kelly I just had my eyebrows dyed. It changed my life. For one week. And then it faded.

Kady Hexum said...

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.

Kady Hexum said...

Kelly, were you excited to see twenty-one extra comments? Did you think they were all from twenty-one different people?

WRONG.

Kelly said...

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.

prettiest sister said...

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.

Mom said...

Don't you all think you should get back to work....or something?

Hanna said...

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?!

A Lady Reveals Nothing said...

Hanna, you do have the option of one-upping her here.

Kelly said...

So sorry Hanna! And the thing is I did give it a thought. It was like taking candy from a baby.

Kady Hexum said...

This is the first time my comments exceeded my page views. How the?

Jude Acers said...

So who do I send a lice-infested beret to?
