One Year Ago Today....

I summoned up the courage to ask my wonderful girlfriend to be my wife. If you want to relive the whole story go here. We have since been married for a little over 6 months and are enjoying (almost) every moment. Plenty of things have happened in the last year and I don't know if I would have predicted any of it. We have made it through the good and the bad and I'm sure there will be more of both in the future. A couple of our friends that we have met in KC have started dating exactly one year after Stefanie and I did (Aug. 9). We were kind of hoping they would get engaged today in order to further solidify our destiny as lifelong buddies (we think things will still work out well). I guess there is still a little bit of time left in the day. As a side note, we will be getting our wedding pictures next weekend when we go to the lake to visit my family over the holiday. Be looking for those to be posted somewhere online if you'd like to see them again.

Cardinals/Royals Game

On Saturday afternoon we got to enjoy some afternoon baseball with friends at Kauffman Stadium. We had a great time tailgating beforehand, even in the middle of a few sprinkles. After about an hour and a half rain delay the game got started. Here are a few highlights. You can see all of our pictures on facebook.

We had great seats thanks to Josh winning tickets from his office.

you can't help but relish the condiment race

Time Warp

In case you ever wondered what happened to Zack Morris, Jimmy Fallon is about to help you find out. Test your knowledge and see how many Saved by the Bell references you pick up on. I'm sure there is probably a facebook quiz that can tell you the same thing, but this is much more enjoyable. Props to the makeup and hair people.

Summer's heating up

Temperatures are rising, bugs are biting and the smell of BBQ is in the air.  Summer time is here (although not officially until June 21st).   This will be our best summer yet as a married couple.  Yes, that's right it's our first summer as a married couple.  Anyway, we have a lot of fun already planned and I know that just as much enjoyment will come from the unplanned events.  Baseball games, relaxing by the pool, family/friend visits, cookouts, church activities and float trips are all ready planned.  Who knows, we might even make a trip to Branson.  If you are going to be in the KC area, please let us know so we can try to meet up.
