Weekend Rewind

Friday night C and I went to FCA to see the Ohio State Alumni Marching Band and James Laurinaitis.  The band was great (even knew some of the folks playing) and was lead by OSU's first female drum major Shelley Graf.  30 years later she's still able to do just about everything.  I was waiting to see her bend over backwards and touch her head to the ground, but that didn't happen. Another highlight, watching the older band members hold their music as close to their faces as possible, while the younger guys either played from memory or were able to read their music from two feet away.  The band ended their performance with a script Ohio, which if you ask me (and C) looked more like a scipt M.

After the band played James Laurinaitis spoke about his "faith journey" (I don't want to called it a testimony, that isn't very Lutheran) and provided some comical insight to the Ohio State locker room, other players (such as Saint Tim Tebow), and his draft experience.  Afterwards we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner with my parents and Mark.  All in all a great evening.

I woke up Saturday morning and debated if I should stay in bed a while longer or watch some t.v. before C woke up.

I went with the t.v.

Before the Buckeyes game we went to Starbucks for a mocha (for C) and a sweetened passion tea lemonade (for me).  SPTLs are SO yummy.  I briefly considered giving those up too but decided against that. We split a bagel with cream cheese (how did I got 25 years without bagels and cream cheese?).

Then we went home and watched the Buckeyes.  Make that I watched the Buckeyes and fed the scores to Charles while he played basketball in the other room.

After the game we ran some errands: stopped at Krogers to get some coffee for C, ran to Dairy Queen for an ice cream treat - I got the most icing on my cupcake ever, and took a country drive to look at a house near Baltimore.

In case you didn't know, I want a house. Because when you have a house you can get a dog and a deep freezer.  The dog makes your life complete and the deep freezer allows you to buy in bulk (or even just sale items) therefore also making your life complete.

After church and McDonalds on Sunday we took long overdue Sunday naps.  Nothing beats a Sunday afternoon nap.  They are delightful.  I went to my parents' house to watch the game while C took his little brother to the book store.  Don't you wish you were his little brother?

It was joyous to see the Buckeyes win the Big Ten Championship and get the overall #1 seed.  This means that the next few weeks are going to be very tense in our household.  Especially if OSU makes it far enough to play UK.  If C decides to root for UK, I'm not sure we will be able to watch in the same house.

Dinner was an authentic British feast consisting of Shepard's Pie, deflated Yorkshire Pudding, and PW's Berry Cobbler. It was oh so yummy.

I also watched the season premier of Sister Wives last night.  The entire episode was about how they were going to New York (last September) to "come out" as polygamists and how they were so worried about what the reaction would be. It would have helped if they clarified that they went to New York before season 1 even aired because I was completely NOT buying it.  I hope season 2 isn't like this every episode.

After watching Sister Wives I still didn't have enough of my polygamy fix so I watched the second to last episode of Big Love.  All I have to say about that if they have a lot of unfinished business to resolve in 55 minutes next week. 

And to top it all off, today, while driving to a meeting, I saw this car...

and thought, "OH MY GOSH! I know that person!  Who do I know that drives that car?"

Then I remembered.

Kody Brown drives that car.  So I don't really know him nor do I really want to know him.  He rubs me the wrong way.
