My date for the evening. Yes, I purposely color coordinate our clothing. I'm not sure why that comes as a surprise to some people.
I got to see Jolene!! And her baby!! This was a high point, believe you me. I don't like when my best friends move a zillion miles away to the Texas/Mexico border! And have cute babies! Away from me! End rant!
Anniversary?? you might wonder. No, not of the wedding variety. This is the One Year Anniversary of Adopting Lola!!! Our beloved baby! A year! Ok, so I'll try to continue using less exclamation points. So Sunday was our official one-year day. I told Lola I'd write a blog about her...but I know she can't read, so I've slacked. Anyway, if she could read, she would know she is featured in practically every blog I write and that my "Lola" category is probably the most populated one of all! That's just because I love her so much and she brings so much happiness to my life. Matt & I ended up going "potluck" with a dog because we couldn't really agree on a breed or size or anything, so we just took a puppy of undetermined breed we were both in love with and hoped for the best. The best is what we got. I never would have dreamed I'd love a big ol' labby thing as much as I do, but now I'd never go back. However...there is nothing as cute as her baby pictures, so lets look at them, shall we??
Episode Three: The Pizza Eating ContestLast night, Matt & 4 other guys from the bank participated in a pizza-eating contest at a local pizzeria. According to Matt, "it's for a good cause...like cancer?...or walking?...or something." As vague as he was with the details, he was pretty sure it was going to involve a mega-huge pizza, several teams, and a common goal to consume it as quickly as possible. I went to cheer the team on and watch the gorge-fest. Although they didn't win (much to the chagrin of his teammates, who grumbled about being under the impression the other teams would also be 'business professional' types and not the local high school's football team), they did a great job and nobody puked.
Well folks, that's all for now. Time to finish my cider and Shark Tank. That show is strangely intriguing.
