Jords & Mads

Our family, faith, friends, fun times and favorite foods

today I took the perfect nap

as the rain fell softly outside my window and a just-cool-enough breeze blew in. The chill forced me under the covers and I knew my attempts to read from my physical science textbook (okay, maybe I was browsing the web) were doomed — so I set my alarm and succumbed to a half hour sleep instead.

That is, until Jords came in, stuffed a cookie in my mouth and dropped a pillow on my head.  He’s such a nap ruiner. Luckily (for him) he made up for it a teensy bit by enjoying the perfectness with me for a minute or two afterward.

I love rainy days. (Too bad today was majorly spoiled by BYU letting UT own them in the second half. There’s always next time, right?)


we’re all in the mood for a melody

Billy Joel will forever be “the piano man” for me.  But let’s be honest, Jon Schmidt is amazing and I try never to miss his concerts if I can help it. Sierra & Jared came with us yesterday to Thanksgiving Point to check out JSchmidt’s latest funny mashups (“Don’t Worry Be Psycho,” for instance), some of his most famous (“Love Story Meets Viva La Vida”), and a few new ones that I need to investigate further.
Some random shots from before the show:

… and then we remembered we were there for a concert, and not just to take pointless photos …

and although the photo isn’t as awesome, the concert definitely was.  Our whole day yesterday was amazing, actually.  We went to a sweet baby blessing on Jordan’s side (she’s seriously such a precious little girl — I’m trying not to be too sad that they chose one of my favorite baby names! does that make it off limits??) and loved seeing those fun fam members again.  I’m lucky to have tons of awesome in-laws. We also had a little party at our place (with taco pinwheels and 7-layer dip to give Si & I something to do during the first half) for the narrowly-scraped football victory before we ran off to the concert.  All in all, an awesome day!

Sadly, tomorrow we’ll have to pay … by spending our Labor Day doing homework.

Play ball

Also, Jords & I went to an Astros game (which we lost, sadface) with my fam & friends to celebrate a birthday. Honestly, our favorite part is the frozen lemonade and gourmet hot dogs; Texas bbq brisket on a hot dog is seriously amazing.

The birthday boy requested a Toy Story tablecloth so this is what my momma came up with — clever, right?
