Valentine's Day 2009

James and I had a good and relaxing Valentine's Day. On Friday he sent me flowers and made me dinner. I made him chocolate peanut clusters because the line at See's was 45 minutes long! Then on Saturday we went to the Brian Regan concert in Colorado Springs with my parents. It was really good. He is hilarious! This is a picture of us at the concert. We weren't allowed to take a picture of Brian Regan...or my parents.

National Western Stock Show

James and I went to the National Western Stock Show on January 19, 2009. It was Martin Luther King Day. The Stock Show was kind of a big deal, it was here for two weeks and everyone went at some point or another. And some people got e'coli from it. (Eeek!) We went to the rodeo first of all. We were sitting there, James enjoying his barbequed turkey leg and me eating my pulled pork sandwich, and a rider comes out with an Obama flag. Which could be expected, he was being sworn in the next day as President. Then a rider comes in with the African American national flag and a lady starts singing the Black National Anthem. James looks at me and says, "I think we're at the Black Rodeo." And it was. It was good. Kind of weird that they still segregate rodeos, huh? They don't, but that's a little what it felt like. We also walked around the booths and saw lots of farm equipment, carhardts and belt buckles. James looks real excited, huh?
