Disclaimer: I have Chance's permission to share this story about Lavender, the now-deceased Betta Fish. She had commented on my post about my little fish still being alive, and it made me laugh out loud! Chance is on my mind right now because tomorrow she and her husband Andy welcome a new little one into the world!

Have I ever told you story about the time Andy and I took our betta with us to Steamboat for Thanksgiving because it was sick and needed daily medicine drops?
Well...it was also the time that we were excited to tell Andy's parents that we were expecting Addison. A time when upon such news, you want to really appear responsible and organized in front of your in-laws.
Lavender was the betta's name...because it was purple...very original...I know. So anyway, Lavender rode up with us in the cup holder of my Rav 4. We get to our cabin and Andy unloads the car. The next morning I go to give Lavender his medicine and I can't find where Andy put him in our tiny cabin...oh that's because Lavender is STILL in the cup holder in the car...FROZEN to death! Great...we were just responsible for giving our fish medicine drops and we are suppose to tell his parents we are expecting a child to take care of! Needless to say...I haven't owned a fish since. AJ has been fine so far though. HA!
