10 Game Winning Streak

on July 31, 2012

So the Reds were on fire for the last 10 games prior to last night’s game. Then they decided to come home and completely fall apart. We were there and we left when it was 10-4, which is something we never ever do. Neither one of us felt like being exhausted because we stayed to watch our team get their butts kicked into the ground. We did get to walk down to the new park with the colorful waterfalls and fountains, so that was nice. I really enjoyed it. Matt says we’ll take a picnic down there sometime soon. 🙂

Another good thing about the 10 game winning streak? Marty is going to shave his head. I’ve heard Saturday since he has to shoot some commercials this week. Can hardly wait to see it.

We’ve been recording and watching as many Olympics as possible and it’s been wonderful. I’m pretty sad that we missed the opening ceremonies though. Stupid DVR ate it all up. We’ve been able to catch little bits and pieces of it with the other Olympic events but I need to look it up online to see if I can find more.

Sunday, we got our photobook from our photographer and I am in love with it. He did such a fantastic job that I will never get sick of looking at it. I took it to work yesterday and spent probably an hour and a half showing it off around the office. Then the bus. It was so fun to share with others and I can’t wait to continue to do so with as many friends and family as possible.

My best friend found this picture and said it would be Matt & I except in Reds uniforms. I think it’s adorable and totally plan on doing this when we’re old enough.

In other news, I’m reading Tale As Old As Time – The Making of Beauty and the Beast right now as well as the Resolution for Women and I love it. It’s my absolute favorite Disney movie and I will love it for all eternity. It you enjoy that kind of thing, it has a lot of background information, drawings of characters and scenes the did and didn’t make the movie, etc. I’m not even finished and two parts have already made me cry.

1) They were talking about the ending when Beast is dying and how they knew they had struck gold with it because even the guys working on it had tears in their eyes. Not that I needed any more reasons to cry at that part.

2) They were talking about how Angela Landsbury was the perfect choice for Tale As Old As Time and how her softness and imperfection made the song perfect. I’ll admit I have an extra-soft spot for this song now because Matt surprised me at the reception by requesting it to be played and dancing with me. I love that man.

Tomorrow I have work and dinner with mom and several of our female friends/family for two of their birthdays. Going to Chucks (better known as O’Charleys)!
