Meetin' Pea Friends and Darin's Promotion

Okay, so guess who's even COOLER in real life? You guessed it.. MARA, KELLY and BROOKE!!!

Had a complete blast at Pages in Time on Saturday. We had lunch at Chili's where I stuck my foot in my mouth. I warned Mara that I would, so she was prepared. Cam, Brooke's husband came with her on her treck up to Mishawaka. Okay, he TOTALLY looked like James, Mara's boyfriend... well, at least in my head he did. It was his smile. So I tell them all,

Me: "Mara.. don't you think that Cam looks like your James."

Mara: "Um, not really, Darcy."

Me: "not even a little bit?"

Mara: "Darcy, James is Asian."

Okay, I REMEMBERED that but still, I thought they looked similar. =/ Least from pictures. It was the smile. Or the fact that I NEVER let myself down by saying something totally stupid. Yeah, that's it. =) Had to get my quota in for the day.

And this is the girls running to the Heidi Swapp area with their carts. Bumping innocent children and nuns out of the way in the name of chipboard and really cute paper clocks...
okay, just kidding about that last part! The didn't hurt the nuns or the innocent children. =) We had a blast and we'll have to it again soon, ladies!!! Mara and Kelly, glad your rental car didn't fall apart on the way home. =/

TOTAL fun!!!

I think most of you know that that Darin coaches JV football? During the varsity games last year he was on the sidelines coaching players when they came in from the field and schtuff.

This year he's been promoted.

He now sits in the press box at the top of the bleachers with those SUPER cool headphones!! Yep, telling the other coaches on the field about things he's seeing in the opposing team and I think he gets to call plays and such. I'm SO proud of him and I'm really pumped about his promotion. Why? Because I know he's guna ROCK his super cool new varsity job! And cuz I'm hoping that there's a seat open next to him.. um, for me. =) Oh yeah, sheltered from the weather, all warm and toasty for the games. AND they could give me my own headset that beams into the cheerleading coaches ear. I would EARN my seat, duh. (Okay, no one tell Darin BUT I usually watch the cheerleaders more than the game. =/)

Can you hear it now?

"Um, the cheerleader on the end there's skirt is WAY too short. I have the number of a really good seamstress that could de-slut-i-fy that baby by next game."


"Okay, JUST because your a cheerleader, doesn't mean that you can THROW AWAY important tumbling technique like PUTTING YOUR LEGS TOGETHER on a backhandspring. Geez, ladies... no one wants to see your briefs, even though they have FHS on the butt. Great school spirit you got there."

So you can see, I'd be really beneficial to their squad. =) All while being nice and toasty in the press box with my D. I'll bring the hot chocolate!
