100 Wins


This past summer, Brady had his 100th tournament match win. 

Brady wasn't aware of this until we told him after his match.

If he celebrated that little fact, it was for about half a minute.  That's just how he rolls.  

100 wins. 

So proud of you!
Here's to many more!

80's Kid

A few weeks ago I found an envelope in Brady's backpack with
his basketball pictures in it.  At first glance, I thought, nice picture....but something didn't quite look right. Then, I saw it!  
There's a shadow behind Brady's head and it looks like he has a mullet!



1. a hairstyle in which the hair is cut short at the front and sides and left long in back.

I'm so glad Brady was in bed and hopefully asleep because Eric and
I had the best laugh ever.  We were doubled over with tears kind of laughing!  We grew up in the 80's so this is funny stuff to us!   I need to find a picture of Eric when he played basketball in the 80's and compare it to Brady's picture.  Eric had a real mullet. :)

Let's take another look at that handsome boy in the 2nd row.

If I had to sum up January in two words I would say SLOW and EXPENSIVE.  We had to get a new hot water heater and a new vehicle...among a few other things that I won't mention.  We were also stuck inside for periods of time due to the freezing temps and a snow storm...which made for long days.  But, there were good days too and things I want to remember.  So, here goes...

We went to many basketball games.  Most nights...I watched
four games- junior high, ninth grade, junior varsity and varsity.
That's a lot of bleacher sitting!  It's a good thing I love basketball!

Eric coaches the junior varsity team.  Man, that guy was meant
to be a coach.  He has such a great connection with the kids ...and parents seem to really appreciate how much he cares.  I could do an entire post on Eric as a coach. Two years ago Eric was named COACH OF THE YEAR in our school district.  Brady and I were so proud of him.

Brady had a sleepover with two friends he has had since
preschool.  They both go to school in the next time over.

 My dad came to visit for a week.  We played lots of Scrabble, did lots of visiting and it was fun to go to a couple of
diners in our area. (My dad really likes diners!) Eric and Brady also
took my dad to see the movie Daddy's Home.

Brady broke his foot the day after my dad came into town.

We got over 27" of snow in a three day stretch. School was
cancelled a couple of days and we had a couple of delays.

We did a lot of laying around on the couch....and watched the
entire series of Breaking Bad.  Boy was it a great show!

I did some crafting.  I made close to 100 necklaces.  They were so
fun to make...I just couldn't stop!  But now I need to figure out how to get rid of them!  Craft show?

Eric and I had a date night.  It was a good one!
(Hon, I think we need another one soon!)

Hope everyone is having a great February!

Super Bowl Snack

I made these buffalo wing pretzels for a football themed teacher
luncheon right Christmas and they were a big hit.  I got to thinking they would make a great Super Bowl party snack too!

You can find the recipe HERE.
