Old NFL Telagrams ...

We were going through some of Justins grandfather's old football scrapbooks and came across some really cool telagrams from WT Mara of the New York Giants. Regarding how they were intrested in drafting him the following fall. These are so cool, I can't believe the history in all of these boxes that we are coming across.

In college he earned All-Coast honors as a tackle in 1948 and played in the 1949 East-West Shrine Game. He then was a 1982 inductee into the State of Oregon Sports Hall of Fame.

Here is a neat photo of Bill & Goody after they have arrived in Hawaii. It was on of their favorite places to vacation after he played in the pro bowl in 1955.

The Hardest Things ...

The hardest thing I ever have had to witness is a loving husband saying goodbye to his wife after 55 years of marriage.

I couldn't even begin to imagine experiencing this, even after only 3 years of marriage.

And of course this has to happen on the 24th. What are the odds?

RIP Goody & Marietta ...

"Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us."

RIP Goody: 10.19.11

RIP Marietta: 10.20.09

We will love and miss you forever.

Couples Game Night ...

Wednesday Alyssa and I hosted a couples game night on our house. It consisted of spa and valet people. It seems these two departments mesh well together, since 4 spa girls have significant others in valet. Its like our own little posse lol. We made meatballs, crescent rolls, and an assorted cheese tray. The best was our sugar strawberry cookies and red velvet creamcheese cake balls covered in a chocolate shell. Mmm Mmm !

We had a total of 6 couples, including us, playing pictionary. It was probaly the funniest pictionary game ever. I can't even to begin to count how many times "What the hell is that?!" was said. It was a success cause there was no break ups or divorces. Maybe a few yelling matches, but it was all in good fun.

We even played a Battle of the Sexes game filled with the most random questions. The ladies asked girlie questions to the guys and the gents asked manly questions to the girls. In the end the best sex won, the females of course !

Happily Ever After ...

I grew up believing in fairy tales and "Happily Ever Afters". I know I'm not a princess and I know I didn't marry a prince, but it still seems all the same. I'm living my happily ever after with the one man that makes my life seem like a fairy tale. Fairy tales come in all shape and sizes, specialty made for each and everyone by their special someone. May you find your "Happily Ever After" even if you don't believe in it just yet.
