Busy Getting Married

So, we've been really busy with a lot of great things lately! Everything from finishing my last two weeks of work to wedding planning to Matt's MWC track meet (came home with a medal) to going through the Temple to throwing April a baby shower to Matt's commissioning and graduation from the Air Force Academy to moving Matt home to Utah.
I plan on playing show & tell about all of that later, but for now I get to spend some quality time with my Matt.

After 2 1/2 years together, I still can't get enough of him. I sure love that man.

We're getting married on Tuesday, you know.

Back in a couple weeks as Mrs. Davis!

Did I mention he's fast?

A couple weekends ago... We were in sunny California, watching Matt race against collegiate and elite (Olympic development) athletes at the Beach Invitational. It was definitely more fun to watch the races with a parter in crime than all alone.
Because, seriously, who can get away with signs like this all by themselves?

One of the elite athletes said he'd kill his girlfriend if she ever showed up with a sign like that. Good thing Matt loves me. Besides, I think it helped! Matt had a few solid races, including a PR in the 100-meter dash. He ran a 10.7 against the wind! They'd just had a false start called back after 4 seconds with little recovery time, so Matt started a bit slower than he would've liked. But watch him catch up to take second in his heat! (He took 8th overall out of 80-something elites, D1's, etc.) The guy in the yellow who wins it is an Olympian who ran for Great Britain in Beijing.

Doesn't it seem like that video is in fast forward?? Yeah, it's not.

After about an hour, Matt ran the 200M, followed by the 4x400M relay an hour after that. He ran the third leg this time around and Air Force was behind when he got the baton... but they didn't stay behind for long :-)

Such a beautiful day for a track meet.

Two weeks later and 50 degrees colder, Matt was at it again at Colorado University in Boulder.
This time, when everyone was running slower because of the pouring rain, Matt managed to PR in the 200-meter dash.
I swear that boy still has more speed in him.

Then, after successfully completing our 6+ hour transformation into wet dogs, we cleaned up and celebrated
with buffalo burgers at our beloved Ted's Montana Grill at Briargate.

We're headed to Laramie this week for the MWC Track Championships. Go Falcons!

My Life is Like an Episode of The Office, Part 2

Customer service always has big potluck parties.
The marketing and accounting staffs are never invited.
So, my boss decided that we would have our own Cinco de Mayo potluck and that it would be better than theirs.

Boy 1: But how can ours be better?
Boy 2: A pinata!
Girl: And sombreros.
Boy 3: But how will they know that ours is better?
Boy 1: We'll break the pinata outside of their windows so they can watch us having more fun than them.
All: Brilliant.

But, our building is new and therefore has no trees from which to hang a pinata. We toyed with the idea of having someone hold it for awhile before coming up with the ingenious idea to just pitch the chile pinata with the batter's eyes closed.
All in front of the customer service windows, of course. Observe (push play):

I'm sure they were very jealous.
