What the...?!*

Don't ask cause I don't even know what to tell you except for I was a freshman (it was a scary time), I love my friend Nikki (she's the one I jumped in garbage cans with), and I'm pretty sure at this time in my life I was secretly hoping my boobs would get this big someday!

What a dork!

Proms to remember...

This beautiful spring weather has inspired me to do my annual spring cleaning, which lead me to the organization of thousands of photos, all of which bring back tons of super fun memories, some definitely more than others, but not many even come close to my PROM pictures.

This was my first Prom experience and it has a great story to go along with it. Tabiona is a tiny town in Utah where Kindergarten through 12th grade all attend the same school, no joke. This particular year there were 16 Juniors total and 1 boy and 1 girl refused to go to Prom with one another. I was dating Bowdy and his Aunt worked at the school so she called Bowdy's mom Gail to see if Bowdy and I would go to Prom but not with one another, me as the boys date and Bowdy as the girls date. Bowdy and I lived 2 hours away from each other and reading back through my journal the only reason we agreed to this was because it was a weekend that we originally weren't going to get to see each other so we thought that going to a dance with somebody else and getting to see each other was better than not getting to see each other at all.
We were so in love! :) is my date Jerry.
Believe it or not I got the better end of the deal when it came to the date! Except I'm not sure what that smurk on his face is suppose to mean.

Here is a picture of us before the dance trying to act like acquaintances rather than boyfriend and girlfriend.

Here is that same picture in my scrapbook with Jerry cut out so I could be closer to Bowdy. We were a much cuter couple, you have to admit. You can totally see the cut out line around his head, now that's funny stuff!

In my journal I talk about how hard it was for us to be there but not with each other, like end of the world hard! When I went to the bathroom Bowdy followed me just so we could hug each other. We were both glad to see that night end, it was torture but good times all in one.

Timpview Prom 1997

I was in the Prom Royalty, I'm not wearing the crown as a self proclaimed princess I swear! This was pretty much the perfect Prom though, I must say.

Bowdy was not a fan of up-do's if you are wondering about the hair being down, he was totally OK with the bangs though!

Here are most of my friends, with their up-do's

Union High Prom 1998

Other than this background, this Prom was pretty fabulous as well!

Here are my Roosevelt besties Tammy and April. Oh and don't even worry that I wore my dresses multiple times, that was a perk with dating someone that lived 2 hours away!

Lone Peak Prom 1998

This is one of my best friends BJ and yes, I am like a lot taller than him even without heels and yes, my cheeks are really chubby (that's what happened when I was broken up with Bowdy) and yes, those are ringlets on the side of my head. Forgive me for looking like this at your Prom Beej, I'm so sorry.

Timpview Senior Ball 1998

This is one of my best friends Chris who was the one that I didn't talk to for months (alright maybe just weeks) because he pinched my butt our Senior year!! I guess I forgave him and he is still one of my best chums.

Hooray for Spring Time and Memories!!!

Hooray for Diapers!!!

Robin and Patsy Sutton hosted a fabulous DIAPER shower for me last night. It was so cute and thoughtful and fun! There is nothing that I love more than having all (well all in one area) of my favorite people in the same room getting to know each other and enjoying each others company. Thank you so much for all who attended and I missed those of you who couldn't make it.
Thanks for the diapers and other useful goodies, I am so excited!!!
Here is the loot (ooh, I like that word!)

It's Official...

After much deliberation we have decided that this little boy's name is going to be....
Tyson J Bobik
I know it wasn't ever a name in the polls (sorry about that) but it has special significance to me because I had a stillborn brother who's name was Tyson. And there are lots of options here Tyson, Ty or TJ so I'll never get bored with it.
Hooray for that!
Oh and the count down is on 4 weeks from today WOO HOO!!!

5 years ago today...

5 years ago today WE were on our way to the Final Four in San Antonio Texas. That was the first and only time the team took me and Jaxton with them on their chartered "I-m-so-spoiled-I-forgot-what-it-was-like-to-travel-like-a-normal-person" flight that left right out of good old Stillwater, OK. When we stepped off the bus at the hotel there was a large media frenzy going on with people taking pictures and begging for interviews from all of the Oklahoma State players. That was awesome!!!

5 years ago today Daniel was in Sports Illustrated magazine, more than once. He was also picked as the Best Wing Defender in the Final Four and on the All GQ team, go Wheetie!!

5 years ago today my family (Mom, Dad, Kristi, Grandma, Grandpa, and Uncle Ricky) rolled up to our San Antonio hotel in a grey Astro Van! I will forever kick myself in the hind end for not getting a picture of all of us with that beauty. Every single time I drove it I hit the exact same corner coming out of our hotel, no matter how hard I tried to miss it. Good times!!!

5 years ago today Jaxton wasn't even 2...He looked like this and he carried this flag around with him at all times. He was daddy's biggest fan!!!

5 years ago "Cool Chicks Wear Orange" was born and was all the rage! Kristi and I were just as famous as the boys on the team doing the Horse Dance for all of the fans, taking pictures with people from all over the country, doing television, newspaper and radio interviews of our own and signing autographs on the same basketballs as the other players. That was the life!!!
Five years ago today life was one exciting experience after another. I am so thankful that I got to share that excitement with Daniel and my family and for the memories we have to hold onto one March Madness after another. Life has been very good to us!!!

Have fun in Detroit Daniel, I wish I was there with you.
