Celebrated a major milestone that is also known as 26 years of marriage over the past couple of weeks, because sometimes the party needs to stretch out beyond just one day when you've been married for so unbelievably long. So here are 3 favorite pics in honor of our big celebration: first with a sweet flashback to the actual wedding day where our hands were still young and fresh-looking (my REAL nails - no fakes there, thank you very much!); second with a fancy fall bouquet of flowers received from my lovely Mom & Dad; and lastly with a selfie snapped while enjoying a Creighton men's basketball game where we whomped some serious Louisiana Tech Bulldog booty as I sipped overpriced mini bottles of chardonnay, not even blinking twice about it.
CHEERS TO US!
Here we are at the Creighton basketball game cheering on my alma mater and celebrating 25 years of marriage together. And as I post this blog entry, I am also celebrating a new beginning with the start of my new employment this week. At the pinnacle of my life, I am feeling overwhelmingly blessed by the uplifting milestones surrounding me at this moment.
So I've determined that I really don't need season tickets to witness my team waling on the basketball court but just a single game here or there, which is exactly what just happened here in this match against Bemidji. While it was more like another exhibition to keep the Jays going until their next big game, I figured hey, at least I was ensured (mostly anyway, scary start) to see a WIN while not sitting in the nosebleed section. (Attendance extremely low - check out all of those empty seats!) Thankfully, a fellow CU Alumna friend came through with primo seating tickets; although, I really just needed to get in the door and sit in any old empty seat.
Making myself useful, one exhibition match at a time. *w00t* #GoJays
FINALLY made it to see my alma mater's basketball team hit the court after several years of forfeiting such chances to the guys in my homestead. Yeah, it was only an exhibition match, but it was a CREIGHTON UNIVERSITY BLUEJAY game, one I haven't witnessed in real life since, well, forever ago. Plus there was wine, which was the-icing-on-the-cake that I just could not pass up. Cabernet Sauvignon in the form of an $8 mini-Sutter Home bottle never tasted so luxurious than right there in the Centurylink Center while watching the Jays dominate, an experience I must repeat for verification purposes.
