I have lots of things to share with you today. Lots of things I've been holding in. Lots of things that can't sustain a single post. Lots of things I've just got to get out.
1. We've been hearing for weeks, and from multiple people, that Ty has a look alike/sound alike on "American Idol." To satisfy our curiosity, we watched the show. We watched six contestants sing and never saw Ty's doppelganger until the recap at the end of the episode. We'd missed the guy, which really sucked because we both loathe "American Idol." Do you think this guy looks like Ty?
3. For most of next week, I'll be at a trade show in Orlando. Ty and I were discussing scheduling last night and he remarked, "Looks like there's going to be lots of pizza in my future." I felt halfway sorry for him, and halfway pleased that he was so lost without me. Someone please take my husband to dinner early next week. I have a vision of coming home to stacks of empty pizza boxes and leftover pizza crust between my sofa cushions!
(Revision: I have to submit this update because I originally wrote that I was holding Brown Buteau, when I was actually holding Briggs. See below why this is very confusing!! I can only tell them apart by their hair ... and even then I'm still a little confused!)
5. I stumbled across my old blog yesterday. It spans from 2006 to 2008 and recaps some fun times in my life. I was working as the entertainment editor for The Times back then, so there's a lot of music stuff on there. But there are also little tidbits woven in about my life at that time. I'll admit, my writing leaves something to be desired and that embarrasses me since I was writing for a living. But overall, I was amazed to look back at my life, compare it to my life now and see the ground work God was laying. Ty was first mentioned on January 14, 2008. We were just friends at this point, going to play golf, completely unaware that we would be married in a little less than three years! It just goes to show you how life is continually evolving and we don't even realize it. Imagine the miracles we're witnessing today without even knowing it. Here are some pictures of my favorite moments:
