Valentines Day 2013

Once upon a time it was Valentines Day... but my Valentine was taking 20 credits in graduate school and I was working. Sad day :( Not to worry though, we celebrated on Saturday by:

CROSS COUNTRY SKIING on Scout Mountain (or it might have been called back country skiing, but whatever it was, it was fun)!!!

We must have been a little confused though, because we found out we had our skis on the wrong feet! Haha! I think we got the boots right, but that was tricky too. We weren't the only ones that were confused. This tree had the wrong holiday!

Going down hill was really fun, partly because Adam is a snow board man and he didn't know how to stop or slow down on his skis!

Once we got home from our outdoor adventure, I took a bubble bath and Adam read to me. We are reading The Beyonders together. Adam's voice got tired and my water got cold too soon.
After we both got dolled up for the night, we headed out for dinner. This whole month we had looked forward to trying Middle Eastern food at a local restaurant, but when we arrived we found out the whole restaurant was reserved for the night. :( We crossed the street to McKee's pet store to look at puppies while we decided where to go next. We ended up at Sumisu where I ate red pepper chicken and Adam ate the Eugene roll sushi. Both were very good. Don't worry, it wasn't raw sushi (Adam likes that, but I am too afraid to try).

Happy Valentines Day All You Blog Readers!

And Happy Valentines Day To You Little Lock! And You Too Nora!

Football...As I Know It

Alright y'all. I grew up in a house full of Barbie playing girly girls. Except for my dad, who of course he is a man, but not a sporty man. Basically, we never watched sports on TV ever, unless it was the Olympics or figure skating. Hence, I know nothing about football. In fact, I can count the number of high school football games I attended on, um, 2 fingers!

Adam, on the other hand, is a manly, sporty man and comes from a sporty family. This means that he knows all things sports. Unfortunately, not much of his sports knowledge has rubbed off on me in the past 4+ years. The Super Bowl is a little bit of a painful annual experience for me. See?

This is football... as I know it.

Big burly men run into each other over and over while they have small towels dangling from their tights like loin cloths. There was also something about breaking the law with illegal formations and contact.

Umm... ya, that is about all I have. I've got nothin'!

I don't know how I have gotten so far in life knowing nothing!!!

Oh well. At least Adam was happy that I was watching the Bowl with him. At least until the 49ers lost.

At least I can cook and feed my husband. It may not be a footBALL, but it is a meatBALL!
