I had a post planned for tonight but my ipod died. And we had a bad day. And then coverage on Ferguson.

Instead, let's look at a picture of my favorite roses in my garden.

See? Much nicer.

See you all tomorrow.

Wedding Album

I absolutely love my wedding album. I still love my wedding dress. I think that the bridesmaid dresses/jackets are still simple and pretty and timeless. I love the joy on my husband's face and the tears in a few eyes. We celebrated 17 years of marriage yesterday during Championship Saturday. (So romantic, no?) Since I love my album so much, I thought I'd share a few shots with you. I guess it's a day to ignore the headless part of the blog? ;-)

With my daughter.

With my parents.

She's a little angel!

The guys at the bar. Of course!

The obligatory church kiss shot.

My mom with HD.

During the ceremony we gave HG her own wedding ring to promise that we would be a family always.

The party was pretty fun. Especially for a certain girl who got all of the attention. Flying is fun!

I love these shots. Our portraits were great too but these give you a feel of how fun our day was. A beautiful Saturday in Colorado, 17 years ago. 

Love you, Honey!

Championship Saturday

When your kids are little and you're changing a thousand diapers a day you never think it will come to this. I'm here to tell you, it can, and it does. We were lucky this weekend that we didn't overlap and had to split.... but I'm getting ahead of myself.

HB#2's football team had a rocky start this year. They won their first game by forfeit. The killed a few teams. They got killed by a couple of teams. They have had injuries. But they have plugged along and ended up winning their division. Finally a championship for my boy! That led to the regional tournament, which should have started 3 weeks ago but after a bye week and then 2 teams dropping out of the next 2 weeks of games, we ended up in the regional championship game. (Further than any other team from our area!) So off we went at 7 am, so we wouldn't be late for the 8 am meeting. (We made it in PLENTY of time. Lombardi time, X2.) The game started at 10 and almost immediately we knew that it was going to be a struggle. Our first possession was a 3 and out. Then the other team scored. And again. And... well, you get the drift. Despite losing 6-34, I'm still super proud of our team for making it this far. I hope that they can put it back together for our next two 'bowl' games coming up in the next 2 weeks!

HB#1 is in Marching Band and has loved it. Since it is my first year as a band parent I really had no idea what to expect from competitions. So far I've loved it and have really learned a lot. Our band, from what I've been told, has not gone to the finals in many, many years. Last weekend we were waiting on pins and needles to get our score-we needed to score high enough to stay in the top 12 bands in our division to go to the finals this weekend. At midnight last Saturday we checked the standings and we were in 11th place-- by .08! So tonight is the night. #1 is already on his way with his band and we're leaving soon. Realistically, the kids are thrilled to be in the championships and from what I understand would just like to place. You know, take home some kind of trophy. Again, I'm so proud of these kids and how hard that they've worked.

Wish us luck!

Phoning It In

Sorry gang. Out late with my #1, early morning tomorrow. 

I should have posted earlier in the day but I know that this still counts, as lame as it is. 

Pinky swear I've got a good post tomorrow!

See you then!

5 Questions-Audience Participation Edition

I think that Sarah and the Goon Squad used to do something like this but I don't remember what she called it. I suppose it's better than 20 questions, right? Here's what we do: Below are 5 quick questions. Answer them in the comments. I'll answer them too, just a little later in the day so others get a chance to respond first. Go ahead and respond to other's answers too-it's more fun when everyone jumps in and talks to each other. It's that simple!

  1. What is the date, time of day, and general location (East coast, Europe, West coast, etc.,) where you are right now?
  2. What did you eat for your last meal?
  3. Silver or Gold?
  4. Boxers or Briefs?
  5. What song is in your head right now? Artist and title if you know it.
Aaaaaand...... GO!
