I think I can, I think I can...

When the snow came down on Sunday, I wasn't worried because duh, I'm from Missouri and I can handle a good amount of snow on the roads. Nevertheless, I have a husband from Montana (it never stops snowing there), so I asked him for some advice for driving in the snow.

Nevermind that I asked for this advice after I had burned out some tires on our friend's driveway/parking lot...

He told me that I was supposed to go really slow when driving out of a snowy patch, and the worst thing I could do was to "gun it" trying to get out. Probably common sense, and I bet I knew that once upon a time, but - I forget things sometimes.

SO, there I am, on my way home from Zumba (PS I'm not a dancer. Not organized dancing, anyway. I can shake it on my own though!), and I try out his little trick, and voila!! It was beautiful! I went excruciatingly slow, but still - I made it out of another driveway, and no burning rubber!

I came home and told him the good news. I don't know why he wasn't surprised.

Chris Wins!

I have been AWESOME at blog-stalking these past couple weeks, and not so good at writing.

However, good times have been had. Chris placed second and third in two events he competed in for a Jiu-Jitsu tournament on Saturday, and I was forced to watch him get beat up - and guys telling his partner how to beat him up - with the powerless knowledge that I couldn't do anything about it. Here's a short clip of him winning!!!

My birthday happened and Chris decorated the whole living room with balloons that he had blown up for the past couple weeks and had been hiding them all around the apartment. That man is so thoughtful.



uhhh I'm retarded and impatient, so tilt your head to see our living room, 'cause I can't fix it...

And now it's time for me to get out ye olde cookbook and pretend like I know what I'm doing.
