Good Luck!


So everyone who knows me knows that my true love and passion is coaching cheerleading. I have coached AMAZING girls and been so blessed to have been head coach for 4 years (though I've been coaching since age 14), qualifying for Nationals all 4 years as head coach and placing in the top 5 twice and always placing in the top 10. My girls are being coached long distance now (great job Brit (and Kellie!), and also great job with LaPorte Michelle!) They have competition coming up in a week and I wanted to wish the Portage PeeWees (MY GIRLS WOO HOO) and the LaPorte Midgets GOOD LUCK!!!

Ok, now the link above is SO FUNNY because it's bloopers of cheer and dance and football and it's so true and so funny and every single year I see them. Really worth a watch for a good laugh.

GOOD LUCK GIRLS!!! I love ya!


Happy 2nd Birthday to Lauren!

Happy birthday!! I hope it was a great one! thanks for posting the pics, Michelle! Love and miss everyone!!! PS- Looking good Mom!!!



CUBS LOSE, DBACKS SWEEP!!!!! What an exciting couple of days! Alan and I were both getting calls and text messages from our friends who are Cubs fans saying how frustrated they were and how the DBacks deserved it....yea baby! Chris Young with a lead off homerun...nice!
My Boilermakers got stomped. I knew that Ohio State would probably win, but I was still wishful thinking :) And I still hate Ohio State. I work with 6 men here at my office and they are ALL from Cleveland so it was a rough week and I've been razzed all morning....haha....

So another busy week, we play the Rockies starting Thursday, I can't WAIT! Wish us luck! Oh, and thanks to everyone who has been calling and congratulating Alan, he is SO excited and it means a lot to him when people have called and shown their support. I hope he gets a ring!!!!

Have a good week and I'll/we'll talk to you all soon!!!



So the last 2 days have been AWESOME going to the playoff games! Then again, any day watching the Scrubs lose is always good to me :-) So tomorrow they are playing in Chicago and it's also the PURDUE vs. Ohio State game....BOILER UP!!! I think we are going to Fox Sports Grill on Saturday with a bunch of people from his office to watch the game...but if not, we will be watching both of them from our big screen at home!



DBack Rally

So last night Alan and I went with Tim and Danielle to the Diamondbacks rally, it was a good time, worth it for sure. Free food and booze! We were up on the balcony of the building you can see in this picture below. I can't wait to watch them whoop all over the SCRUBS!!!!


Me and Robby

Here's me and my little brother, Robby, at a Sox game last year. :) Love him!!!!! :-)

Go DBacks!


So, needless to say, Alan is SOO excited about the DBacks playing the Cubs in the playoffs. We went to San Diego this weekend and I could barely contain him in the hotel, he was so happy! We went to Sea World on Saturday and the Chargers game on Sunday. It was an awesome weekend. I will post some pics sometime this week. I hope you are all doing well and we cannot wait to come home and see everyone at Christmas...just wish we could bring this weather with us! Also, happy birthday to Lauren this past weekend! We love you!
