Zetty The Grizzly Teddy

What an AWESOME shot! Just what we needed to get on fire. After this goal the Wings scored another 2 in the following few minutes.

Skype

Tonight Ry and I were playing around on Skype. Normally we use it to video chat with our families back in Michigan. This time we were setting it up for when he is in Australia. Since he has the old iPhone, he doesn't have the phone on the front. We figured out that he will have to stand in front of a mirror, that way I can see him (in the camera) and he can see me in the reflection of the mirror. It was humorous trying to set up two Skype accounts and then trying it in the condo to make sure we had all of the kinks worked out. As long as he has WiFi we think it will work. Oh yeah, and and as long as we can get the time difference [and our schedules] to work out :)

Of COURSE I had to take some snapshots of us trying it out, me in the living room and him in the bathrooms...




Yummy Juice

Ryan and I have been having smoothies for breakfast for about the last month. We have been using frozen berries (normally mixes - raspberries, black berries, blueberries, or strawberries, melon and blueberries, etc), pineapple juice (most recipes called for orange juice and I don't like it, so we have been on the pineapple kick) and banana. Ryan saw a juice that he wanted to try at the store a couple weeks ago, but it wasn't on sale, so we didn't get it (I know, what a terrible wife I am :) ). This past week it was on sale so I picked up a jug.

Langers Pineapple Coconut Juice. I have only had it one day so far - but I LOVE IT! It gives the smoothies a tropical taste (I know pineapple is "tropical", but coconut reminds me of pina coladas or something tasty).

I would DEFINITELY recommend this juice. It is 100% juice, no sweeteners added. Now I haven't had a lot of it on its own (I tasted it before I put it in the smoothie), so I don't know if I would drink glasses and glasses of it, but I know FOR SURE that I would suggest it as a liquid in smoothies. YUM-O!

Hair Cut

I think I am going to CHOP my hair in a couple weeks. I have been growing it out to donate it again and I finally have about the length I need. This will be the third time (in approx 4 or 5 years) that I have donated over 10 inches of hair. My hair grows incredible fast and I figure if I am sick of it, I might as well donate it to someone that can use it, rather than it just ending up on a salon floor and thrown away. I'm not too sure what I'll do with the rest of my hair (that is left connected to my head), so I thought I would see if any of you had any ideas. These are some of the ideas I had:





I think I will go in to get it cut two weekends from now, so get thinking, and send me your ideas :)

Running in the Rain

Today it was supposed to rain.

Earlier this morning my co-worker told me that the rain was supposed to start at 1pm. At 1:05 she mentioned the time and said that it should be coming. I grabbed the 4 packages that I needed to take to UPS and headed out the door. At that point her husband called and said that he was on his way home (he is a general contractor) because it was pouring where he was working.

The UPS store is literally a stones throw away from our office. We are on one corner and they are about kitty-corner from us. I get outside and it starts sprinkling. I decide to walk a bit faster and made it to the first corner to wait for the walk sign. At that point the sky opened up. It was just dumping on me. I ran across the street and hid in the liquor store while I waited for the other light to change. Once that light changed I booked it across the street and down to the UPS Store. I gave them my packages and decided to head back out into the storm.

As I was running back to the office, COMPLETELY SOAKED, I just couldn't help but laugh. I had rain water running off of my nose, my pants and shirt were drenched, and all I could do was smile. Yes, sitting in the office for the rest of the afternoon was slightly chilly and not too comfortable, but hey, I survived.

I remembered those times of playing soccer (practicing and games) in the rain - which was always so much better (AS LONG AS IT WASN'T FREEZING RAIN). Or running around outside in the rain and jumping in puddles. Sometimes I think we get so caught up in life that we forget to run around and dance in the rain.

Don't get me wrong, I love playing in the rain, but if I wasn't stuck in it today while I was running errands, I probably wouldn't have just went out there (especially while I was at work) to just twirl around in it.... BUT MAYBE THAT IS THE PONT... Maybe we need to go out, take a minute and ENJOY LIFE!

Engagement Anniversary

4 years ago today Ryan asked me to marry him :)

3.5 years ago today Ryan and I got married :)

And oh, 8.5 years ago (not an exact like the other two dates) Ryan and I started dating :)


Here are just a few pictures from those land marks.

This is a picture of Ry and I in Florida the summer before we started dating (summer 2003) when we were living in Orlando and working at Universal Studios. We are holding hands behind Ryan's knee.



This is a picture of the morning we got engaged. (Ryan asked me to marry him while we were geo caching, and he ""found"" my engagement ring in the cache). 02.16.08



These pictures are from our 'engagement photo shoot'. We went to the beach and a school park to take the pictures. And yes, we just used a tripod and auto timer on the point and shoot camera :)




And the last two are from our wedding. Aren't we so cute?! :) 08.16.08

Standoff with NO ONE
















San Diego Cops Find Nothing In 2-Hour Standoff With Empty Car

A tense, two-hour standoff between armed San Diego Police and an empty car on the freeway ended with no injuries -- just questions.

The red-faced cops can be seen on Fox 5's helicopter footage pointing guns at a dark-colored sedan on Interstate 8 -- apparently for more than two hours before they moved in to take down their target.

But there was nobody in the vehicle.

Police officials said that the suspect they were looking for -- an unidentified man who was on parole -- was a suspect in a home invasion on Tuesday. He called his parole officer, saying that he'd broken down on the interstate and would be late for his mandatory meeting, the station reported.

Cops found the vehicle on the highway and surrounded it, thinking that their home invasion suspect was hiding inside. They even sent a canine to check the vehicle, but the pup found nothing.

The suspect, whose name police haven't yet released, is considered armed and dangerous.

21 WINS!!



Wings Set the Record - The Detroit Red Wings win their 21st straight at home, 3-1 over Dallas, to set an NHL record

Little Hurricane in SI

Little Hurricane was featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition



The stage at a Little Hurricane gig is like an old Kodachrome photo of your grandparents’ living room. A dainty lamp sits atop a white nightstand. A beaten yellow suitcase lies propped in the corner. A wooden radio glows. Celeste (C.C.) Spina hops on her drum stool wearing a baby-blue house dress. In a vest and tie, Tony (Tone) Catalano looks as if he just got home from the office, hungry for meatloaf. The boy-girl blues act hollers and moans, swapping vocals in tales of tough, turbulent love. Tone’s slide guitar and C.C.’s pounding toms at times sound like an argument. Heck, the duo titled its debut Homewrecker. You expect that furniture to get trashed. But it doesn’t. Those props are speakers in disguise.

Tone, who grew up in Santa Cruz, California, staring at the surf through the window in math class, turns domestic life into rock & roll weaponry. A gearhead with a nostalgic bent, he worked in a vintage motorcycle repair shop and in recording studios. He began crafting guitar slides from wine bottles as a hobby. Now he does it out of necessity, because he wears the suckers down so quickly. C.C. slaved away in restaurant kitchens. Perhaps that’s what leads the Chicago native to coo a line like, “You and me, we’re like biscuits and gravy,” as she sweetly tells her bad boy in “Crocodile Tears.”

What’s the strangest thing the San Diego duo has written a song about? “We were doing a photo shoot, and the property next to where we were was full of massive mounds of dirt covered in plastic,” C.C. recalls. “It was a relocated ancient Indian burial ground that was accidentally uncovered during construction.” Yeah, that’s right in Little Hurricane’s wheelhouse. Even when appearances are quaint, there’s darkness beneath.

Carl and Ellie: timeless.

I am so excited to grow old with Ry (okay, maybe not the growing old part, but the WITH RY part is beyond amazing)

Mini Shopping Spree

I went on a mini shopping spree this weekend. For those of you that know me well, know that I do NOT like spending money, especially on myself. Well, Ry and I went out to a couple stores (Ross, Marshalls, Target) and I decided to pick up a few things. At Ross I found these super cute Simple shoes. Simple is going out of business (but Zappos will continue selling the shoes for a while it looks like, which is why they were popping up at Ross. I thought these were just a cute pair of little tennis shoes. AND the soles 'self destruct' in 20 years :)




Then when we went to Marshalls I picked up a few running items - 2 sports bras and a bar of capri/ shorts. I thought that if I was going to stay excited about running then I should pamper myself with a few new items :) Right now I only have boring white sports bras and black yoga like pants to work out in. So I thought I would change it up (even though no one sees the sports bras), especially for when the weather starts warming up and I need shorter pants.





All in all I think my shopping spree was only like $60, but hey, I was excited (and pretty proud that I got all the stuff and didn't feel guilty about it afterwards). PS Forgive the picture quality, I didn't feel right spending money and using the good camera to take pictures of it, hehe, just kidding - but I took the pictures quickly on Ryan's phone.

Friars - Mrs. Robinson

The Friars are an a cappella group at the University of Michigan.

Here's to you, Denard Robinson...



[Okay, if you can fast forward through the first 2 minutes of corny jokes, the song is pretty fun :) ""Liar, liar, vest on fire"" ]

Love for Denard

The best love song to Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson you'll ever hear



The lyrics to "I Love You Denard:"

Henne Brady Grbac Navarre
All of these men could throw very far
Slow white quarterbacks most were five stars
Pro-style offense run by Lloyd Carr

When he retired I was still all smiles
Herbstreit told me that we'd get Les Miles
Didn't know what to think about the spread
Mallett left and I thought we were dead

First year under Rich Rod was a disaster
Spread offense needs a QB much faster
I suffered for two miserable years
But then you dried up all my tears

I think I'm in love I've never felt like this
Nothing compares not even my first kiss
My heart skips a beat every time you gain a yard
I know this might sound strange but I love you Denard

I love you Denard I don't know how to show it
I used to be scared every time you would throw it
You're the QB for me and I want everyone to know it

When you took your first snap vs. Western Michigan
That's when we found you were made of dilitihium
Always my favorite even when Tate started
Now the whole campus gets Denarded

No D coordinator seems to have an answer
A Michigan Man so glad you didn't transfer
Under the lights my heart still races
Because of you I don't mind tripping over laces

They say you can't play QB in the NFL
Well I think you play QB pretty damn well
You could win the Heisman, it's your senior year
If you cut your dreads I want a souvenir

Together so long can't stand to be apart
16 on the field number one in my heart
Without you it's gonna be hard
I wish you never had to leave I love you Denard

Family struggles after hit-and-run death of man, 21

On a wind-swept section of Jackman Rd., Dave Tucker stood along the roadside and gazed at the site where his youngest child and only son took his last breath.

In the weeks since 21-year-old Brian Tucker was killed by a hit-and-run driver, his father has avoided the road he used to take to work. On Thursday afternoon he met with a Monroe County sheriff's deputy to see the place where his son was struck and dragged for almost a half mile.

'It's my way of getting past it; it's the only way I can live with it,' Mr. Tucker said after visiting the scene. 'It's a page you have to turn whether you want to turn it or not. But I just couldn't come down here. It's tough. It's tough. He was my right-hand man. He used to emulate me.'

On Jan. 17, Brian was walking home from a friend's house when he was hit by a car north of Temperance Rd. and dragged 2,335 feet. The driver never stopped. Since then, little information about who was responsible has been gathered.

Deputy Tim George and Mr. Tucker both say they are certain the person behind the wheel that night knew he or she hit a person.

Unconstitutional... AGAIN

Prop. 8 overturned in California, court says state can’t ban gay marriage

The 9th Circuit Court in California struck down as unconstitutional the state's voter-passed ban on gay marriage Tuesday, ruling 2-1 that it violates the rights of gay Californians.

"Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples," Judge Stephen Reinhardt wrote in the decision. The court concludes that the law violates the 14th Amendment rights of gay couples to equal protection under the law. Access to gay marriage will remain on hold pending appeals to the decision.

The Circuit Court backed up District Judge Vaughn Walker, who ruled in August of 2010 that the state of California has no "rational basis" to single out gay men and women as ineligible for marriage. The group fighting for Prop. 8, which passed in 2008 after thousands of gay couples had already married, appealed Walker's decision arguing that it should be vacated because Walker is gay and has a same-sex partner. The 9th Circuit Court judges denied this motion.

Walker's sweeping 2010 decision was called a "grand slam" by gay rights advocates, who hoped it would convince the Supreme Court to rule states cannot outlaw gay marriage. But Reinhardt was explicit in his decision that his ruling is "narrow" and only relates to California, not to the entire nation. In California, gay people had the right to marry for five months before it was taken away by voters. This amounts to a violation of equal protection because a right was specifically taken away from a minority group, Reinhardt writes. But this argument would not apply to gay people in most other states, where gay marriage was never legalized in the first place. "It's a strong decision but it is not the ringing endorsement of broader marriage equality that some might have hoped for," Hunter College professor and gay rights advocate Kenneth Sherrill said.

It's Halftime



Clint Eastwood Chrysler Super Bowl Commercial Proclaims It's 'Halftime In America'

With most Super Bowl commercials either aiming for laughs to generate buzz or using sexuality to push a product, Chrysler distinguished itself by doing something completely different. Clint Eastwood starred in the most stirring commercial of the night, promoting a message more than any product.

This country can't be knocked out with one punch. We get right back up again and when we do the world is going to hear the roar of our engines.

The 81-year-old Academy Award-winner kept returning to the mantra that it's "halftime in America" while it was, in fact, halftime at the Super Bowl. Eastwood conceded the struggles that the auto industry -- as well as the entire nation -- have faced in recent years but his tone was ultimately defiant and optimistic, looking ahead to the so-called second half. The powerful ad was certainly a departure from the rest of the day's offerings and left many people applauding.

Blessed

I was just clicking through pictures that we took this past Thursday at Growth Group (what our church calls small groups or Bible studies). Anyway, I was just thinking about how blessed we are to have people around us that will celebrate during the high times AND still be around to come along side of us and pray with us in the low times. I pray that all of you can find a few special people that you can rely on like that in your lives!

Promised Land

We were lucky enough to be able to head up to Capistrano Beach on Friday to see the US Premier of Promised Land. We are so proud of Todd and everyone else that was involved in this film!! We can't wait to see the impact it has on the world!

Promised Land Movie Trailer, Israel, Through The Eyes Of Surfers from WalkingOnWater on Vimeo.



Promised Land is the story of Israel through the eyes of surfers told through the friendship between a Jewish surfer from Israel and a Christian surfer from California.

Israel is a country that is loved, hated, and often misunderstood by much of the world. Who really belongs there? Why is Jerusalem so important? Why do some believe in a messiah who will put things right?

Amidst this seemingly endless battle over land and religion, surfing has emerged as an escape from the controversy.

Promised Land is a unique look at this ancient place through the lives of two friends from different faiths, brought together by their love of the oceans that separate them.

Cousin Adam

Ryan's cousin Adam passed away last night. Ryan's cousin Leigh (Adam's sister) posted some insight about Adam this morning.



Adam McFarland, Christmas Day. Adam was born with cerebral palsy and cognitive impairment at a time when special education had just begun. He taught all of us do many things, especially that we are more alike than different. He also taught me that we are much stronger and capable than we often think we are.

----------------

Our brother Adam passed away unexpectedly last night. Our family is reeling but we also feel the thoughts and prayers from friends and family. Please know that every single moment is an absolute gift. Don't doubt for a second that life is to be lived with joy, love and compassion every single day. Adam loved life. He loved his movie collection, 80s references, going out to eat, complaining about work, dancing, beer, and his family. Please pray for us or send us whatever strength you can. Adam was a kind, sensitive soul. We will miss him forever.


Please pray for the family during this difficult time. Adam & Leigh's mom (Leslie - Ryan's aunt) was diagnosed with lung cancer about 2 weeks ago and has just started undergoing intensive chemo this past week. Leigh's mother-in-law is in late stages of cancer down in Louisiana. Any positive thoughts and prayers would be MUCH appreciated during this trying time.

Prayer Needed

Please join me in praying for a friend. One of my friend's mom tried to kill herself by overdosing yesterday. They found her on the floor and rushed her to the hospital. There are so many prayers needed at this time - for the mom: that she can get the help that she needs, once and for all; for my friend: that she can have the strength to forgive her mother for what seems like such a selfish act, that the Lord can comfort her during this crazy time, etc. Please send up positive thoughts, prayers, kind words, whatever you can muster. Thank you in advance!

Sons Seasons

'Sons of Anarchy' Renewed for Two Seasons, Creator Kurt Sutter Inks First Overall Deal

FX's highest-rated show has been renewed through season six, though those involved with the show assume a seventh and likely final season will be part of Sutter’s plan.

FX ratings juggernaut Sons of Anarchy is coming back for at least two more seasons.

The renewal news comes as its creator and showrunner Kurt Sutter has inked a three-year overall deal with Twentieth Century Fox TV and FX Productions, which jointly produce the highest-rated series in FX history. As part of the pact, Sons has been officially renewed through season six, though those involved with the show assume a seventh and likely final season will be part of Sutter’s plan. What’s more, the deal allows the often outspoken showrunner to develop fare for both broadcast and cable, and includes a script deal with FX, where the former Shield writer is now the longest-tenured scribe.

Among the advantages, the pact gives Sutter the wherewithal to map out the series’ future on his own terms, rather than at the whim of Nielsen ratings. It’s a strategy that allowed past FX showrunners from The Shield’s Shawn Ryan to Rescue Me’s Peter Tolan and Denis Leary to present a coherent show from beginning to end, noted FX Network president John Landgraf, and the intention is that that level of certainty will be helpful creatively for Sutter as well.

Mater's Ride

Behind the Scenes of Cars Land - In Omaha with Larry the Cable Guy

When Cars Land opens this summer and you enter Radiator Springs, the first attraction you’ll see is Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree. This attraction is going to be a blast! You’ll hop onto a baby tractor where you’re then pulled around in a series of figure eights to some of Mater’s favorite songs.

I had the pleasure of flying to Omaha, Nebraska, to go behind the scenes for the Disney Parks Blog and shoot a voice-over session with Walt Disney Imagineers and Larry the Cable Guy. He was singing seven original songs for the new attraction. It was an entertaining two days! The famous comedian and voice of “Mater” is a very down-to-earth guy who made the long sessions a lot of fun. And if you’re wondering why we were all in Nebraska, that’s Larry the Cable Guy’s home turf. It’s still show business, but far away from the Hollywood hills. Enjoy!


Jesus > Religion



A poem I wrote to highlight the difference between Jesus and false religion. In the scriptures Jesus received the most opposition from the most religious people of his day. At it's core Jesus' gospel and the good news of the Cross is in pure opposition to self-righteousness/self-justification. Religion is man centered, Jesus is God-centered. This poem highlights my journey to discover this truth. Religion either ends in pride or despair. Pride because you make a list and can do it and act better than everyone, or despair because you can't do your own list of rules and feel "not good enough" for God. With Jesus though you have humble confident joy because He represents you, you don't represent yourself and His sacrifice is perfect putting us in perfect standing with God the Father.

Month 1

I would consider Month One of training successful. My main focus of month one was to get in a routine. I know that once I start scheduling working out into my daily routine that I will be more likely to continue it. Every work day (expect for 2 Fridays since I only work half days) I walked 2 miles on my lunch break. Starting the second week of January I started making the gym a three-times-a-week routine. I am keeping a rough count of my workouts (time and distance). I show, on top of the normal activity we do on the weekends, I walked approx 37 miles, biked approx 49 miles and ran approx 23 miles. Now I know this isn't HUGE, but it is consistent. I wanted to start off slow, A. so I don't hurt myself, but also B. because, like I mentioned before, I was more focused on the running/ working out/ training stuff as a HABIT. I still have eight more months before my half marathon (which seems like plenty of time to work up my milage). Wish me luck :)
