You may have already heard that this year (today in to be exact) is the 30th anniversary of the movie Pretty in Pink.
This is one of my favorite movies. But, I have always felt it ended wrong and Andi should have choose Duckie.
In honor of the anniversary, they re-released it to theaters for 2 days, so my sister and I headed out to see it on Valentine’s day.
It was different to see it on the big screen and we had lots of fun and found out a few new things about the movie. The movie is being released digitally through iTunes with an hour of bonus footage, so I will probably be getting it to see the extras. Will you?

As pretty much everybody knows by now the Super Bowl was on Sunday. This was a big deal around our house, especially for my brothers that are probably the biggest Bronco fans ever.
I tried to set them up a little party, although it wasn’t much. And then, I left them alone. I seem to bring bad luck to the team and it is decided that the best way for me to support the team is to not support the team and not watch. That was ok because The Harvey Girls was on TCM and I enjoyed that with my mom and grandma.
Well, I guess this strategy worked out well because the DENVER BRONCOS WON!!!! Colorado is very excited about our Super Bowl 50 Champions!!
Congratulations Denver Broncos!!

Well, we did get that snow I mentioned yesterday. It isn’t much and it isn’t super cold so I guess it is ok. It is a very wet snow so it would make a good snowman. The blue sky is starting to peek through now and the news said it would get up to 47 degrees today. So, I guess that is the best kind of snow day.
This winter has been pretty unusual, it has been kinda warm. Can you believe it? I can’t and I’ve been here to see it. Especially the last few days have been in the upper 50s. That doesn’t happen this time of year in the old valley. Unfortunately, my office is still like a refrigerator, so I still have the heater on and many layers of clothes. Oh well, at least I can go out at lunch and enjoy some sun. I know we are probably in for a few more snow storms and cold nights before winter comes, but for now I’m just going to enjoy this taste of spring.

This weekend I got to spend Sunday afternoon with my sister and nephew seeing a play.
It was really good. I didn’t know what to expect from a “live radio play” I worried they might just sit there and read the story. But, no…I was really surprised.
Since we couldn’t take pictures during the play, I saved these from the Adams State Facebook page.
I am glad they invited me along, it was a great afternoon.

Yesterday, I got to post on my Grandma’s new book. That was a special post in two ways since it turns out that is was also my 500th post! I had no idea I had that many posts. Well, it does help inspire me to get back to more regular posting and not have a few months between posts. I might even try to fill you in on what all was going on during that time.

I am very happy to announce my Grandma has written an awesome BOOK!!
Obviously, I think it is great, but I am sure you will too. Here is the description from the back cover:
It is 1934, and Mary Elizabeth Barrett is the youngest of four growing up in Benkleman, Kansas. In a town where there are few secrets, it is quite a surprise when her father, George, uses his wife’s jelly-making money to buy a secondhand touring car and announces they are moving to California. Despite his wife Ruth’s protests, the touring car is packed in a week’s time. Whether they like it or not, the family is on their way to a new beginning. Five days later, after the family stops in Minton, Colorado, for lunch, Mary Elizabeth’s father hops in the old touring car and tells them he will be right back. While the sun lowers in the sky, Ruth finds a note from George in her pocketbook, telling her that although he has decided to head to California alone, he will be back to get them all eventually. With just over one hundred dollars to their name, Ruth and her four children make a decision: they will stay in Minton. As Mary Elizabeth and her family begin anew, they soon realize that happiness comes in the simplest of moments as they learn to look at challenges as stepping stones and face the harsh reality that George may never return. The Last Apple on the Tree is a story of trials, perseverance, and family togetherness as a mother and her four children find beauty in their own little garden of life.
Grandma, I am very proud of you and so glad you were able to accomplish this.
