Cinco de Mayo.... The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.... It is also the day (a mere forty-six years ago!) that my poor Momma delivered my nine-something-pound screaming carcass into the world.... Thanks Elinor!
Here is a pic of the awesome birthday gift I received from the Parents:
|Bling for Fatty! Love it!!|
'Diamond Ice' around the fuel gage and speedometer, and
the sparkly shield on the gas cap.
And here is how I spent my birthday evening:
|On our way to Game 4 of the Flames/Ducks|
Stanley Cup playoff series!
|Pre-game tailgate party!|
|We had sweet seats and watched the Flames win|
in OT - literally in a sea of red!
Now, for the funniest part of the day.... The entire time we were in the Saddledome, we each kept one eye glued to the jumbo-tron in hopes of catching a glimpse of ourselves on the big screen. By mid-third period, we were both joking that it wasn't going to happen, and then.... The texts started rolling in.... forget the arena-cam - we made NATIONAL TELEVISION!
|This is a still from a 10 second clip of us on SportsNet!|
Lots of laughs were had, and the following day we were both celebrities at work. It was worth every penny we paid for those tickets!
Anyway, another year has come and gone, and it has truly been one of the best so far. Lots of great things are happening in my world, and I am soooo lucky! Life is so darn good!!
PS - Happy Mother's Day Mom! Love you!!
PSS - Remember in my last post, Chris had something exciting to share.... well this is it....
