Remember the 80's


It’s been a crazy busy week, sorry to let down all 2 of my weekly fans. This past weekend John and I went to our Newly Married’s Class party, it was an 80’s Party and contest. We were excited to go but were hurried after a youth service project on Saturday morning and so we didn’t dress up for it, so didn't really expect anything out of it other then hanging out with some friends. Although I have to throw props out to all the other couples that wore leg warmers, two layers of colored socks, their shirts tied on hip, and their hair in side pony tails..oh the greatness of the 80's. But anyway,the first event was Putt Putt which John and I tied for with another couple so it came down to the wives’ scores, needless to say we ended up third place. Well it is without doubt that John and I bombed the 80’s trivia test, since we were only 9 when the 80’s were over. But we still had the craft contest to aim high for, and thanks to all of my elementary teachers for free time inside on rainy days and my parents for giving me the chance to watch Punky Brewster! For the craft contest each couple had 30 min to make the most creative thing that represented our childhood, so out of pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, feathers and glue we made Punky Brewster’s tree house…and won first place! Which over all put us on top, we couldn’t believe it! The first place prize… (Drum roll please)…4 Dallas Stars tickets on the fifth row!!!! How awesome is that? But don’t everyone call at once; we have already picked the lucky couple that will go with us, my sister Cyndy and her husband Chris. Chris is a true Stars fan, we wanted to take someone that would really appreciate the hockey game...well at least that is how I convinced John to take my sister. But before John agreed to it Cyndy had to name at least 5 NHL teams, way to go Cyndy for pulling through.

Crysty that is awesome that you won the tickets. I would love to go to that game. I'm so proud of ya'll for winning the contest. I laughed when I saw the picture because in high school everyone said I looked like Punky Brewster. I don't see it though, but that was my nickname. I'm glad ya'll had fun. And you better be counting me as one of your two weekly fans. Love ya!!!

I am excited for the game. Thanks for inviting us. Good thing your sister named 5 NHL teams, otherwise I would have broken up with her. I'm always looking for an excuse, and that would have been as good as it gets. I think all the hockey fans out there would agree with me on that.

Crysty-
I always read your blog but I couldn't figure out how to post until now. But I have to say, I'm quite disappointed you didn't tell everybody is was me who beat you at Putt-Putt! Ha ha. I'm hope you have a great time at the game and I'm glad you talked John out of selling the tickets!

John called me a little before 8:30 a.m. the following Sunday morning. I had only woken up 5 minutes before that and it was demanded of me to name 5 hockey teams immediately. Luckily I was able to do it and was rewarded with the invitation to see the Stars with Crysty and John. Chris is soooo excited too!
