{weekend tournament results}

We had a great time in Birmingham this weekend. The weather was awesome and we finsihed up our tournament in 2nd place in our division. The 14's played
there games at a high school in Hoover, Alabama called Spain Park High School and it
was the most amazing high school I have ever seen. It was 3 stories, huge with 2 gyms. The cafeteria had a food bar with all types of food and slush machines and
there were plasma tv's on the wall in the lunch room. Don't know about you but
were I went to high school it sure wasn't anything like that!
We also drove by Hoover High. If any of you have teenage children they have heard
of Hoover High. There was a reality show on MTV about Hoover High's football team.
Of course, Katie had to have her picture taken by the sign.

Also while in Birmingham I got to have lunch with a family friend and her husband that I have not seen in years. John and I enjoyed that so much and hope we can get
together with them again in the future.

{my valentine}

So I bought myself a Valentine gift . I have so been waiting for the release of this DVD.
I love Nicholas Sparks' books and the movies about his books. ( The Notebook, Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle)
I also love-- Richard Gere. Although he is really showing his age a little in this movie.
I guess I shouldn't talk. I am getting closer to 50 and its scary!!!
The movie was not as good as the book but I still enjoyed it very much.

Happy Monday! Here is a little eye candy for your Monday!

We had the most beautiful weekend here that we have had
in a really long time. The temps were 70ish all weekend.
I got both my cars washed inside and out and John got his
truck washed. Now its about to rain- go figure.
The kids rode bikes in the neighborhood and played
volleyball in the yard. I even grilled hamburgers Sunday
afternoon for dinner.
I have gotten this blog thing down - I think! so I am going to get
hip and join the rest of the world and attempt my fate at Facebook.

So I have build me a page on Facebook and it is so amazing how
many high school friends and college friends that I have gotten
in touch with. Its like a reunion all over again.

Well good-bye January and hello February!
And what a busy month we have planned for
February. With 2 volleyball tournaments in
Alabama this month I am sure it will go by fast.

I was going through some pictures tonight of
mine and John's Anniversary vacation 2 years
ago to Europe. I think I am ready to make a
scrapbook of our trip. Yes, that was 2006 and yes
it is now 2009. Can you say "just a little behind"
I thought I would share a few of my favorite pics
from our trip.


Venice, Italy (my Fav)

Prague- it too was my favorite.
We had a big tournament this weekend and the
team came in 4th in the Gold. Not too good. We
got beat by a great team from New Orleans.
Hope everyone has a great week!
