It was a great game! It's been a great series. Although like I have said, neither Joel nor I are huge Sox fans, we are happy to see some team out of Chicago do something! Our greatest team right now besides the Sox is the soccer team, the Chicago Fire. Anyway, hats off to the Sox. Have I told you that Ozzie Guillen's sons go to North Park University? That's the school that I graduated from and where Joel is in Seminary. Kind of a fun fact for ya! Again, congrats to the Sox and to J. Dye for a well deserved MVP!

What do you all think of the series? Does anyone still like baseball out there?

I also recommend going to OPRAH.COM. Now, I am not a huge fan of Oprah, I think her thinking system can be a bit...well off base at times, but she does do some good shows about things that I think are very important. She recently did a show with the cast from Crash and I thought you might be interested in seeing some of it. Also, if you don't know what Crash is about, go to crashfilm.com and watch the trailer.
Hope you all get a chance to see this film. You will be better for it. Let me know what you think!

I had to write about my husband because, well, I just love him so much. I was so proud of him this weekend as I watched him preach his first sermon in the "big" church. Right now he is doing his internship at our church for seminary. He had preached once before at church, but it was the weekend that most of the congregation was at our church picnic in Wisconsin. Last Sunday, a ton of people were there. His parents and aunt and uncle were also there. We sat right in the front row (no pressure), so we had a front row seat.
I knew that he was going to be preaching on John 13-Jesus washing the disciples feet, but didn't realize how much it would touch me and how I felt he lives out the message he was preaching. The basics of the sermon was that Jesus washed the disciples feet and then sent them out to wash other's feet. He also led by serving. Of all the people I know, I feel my husband is such a servant leader. He is the most loyal friend anyone could ever have. After the service was over, I was just so proud of him. Of course me being so emotional, I started crying. But I realized how truly blessed I am to have the husband I do. I am so excited to see what God is going to do through him.
Thanks Joely for being my husband and my best friend!

Well, I have to brag on my husband and my friends for a little bit. A year ago today, my wonderful husband and my two seminary friends Johnna and Jodi, completed the Twin Cities Marathon! I didn't do much but stand on the sidelines and cheer for them and give them the occasional banana when needed. It was a fun experience for me (I don't know how much fun for them...)
Today we went out the lunch at Yes, Thai; one of our fav resturants and one of the places we all went while they were in training for the marathon. It was fun to catch up and talk about life after the marathon.
So Joel, Johnna, and Jodi, if you didn't know already, I am super proud of you all! You all did a great job. So maybe it's a year later, but it was fun! See you in the spring for a MINI Marathon right??? (That's just my size)!
Congrats and happy 1 year (MARATHON) anniversary!

Well, there are many things we have been introduced to in Chicago. I have mentioned the traffic previously. Other things are culture-almost anytime you walk down the street you are guaranteed to hear 5-10 different languages. We LOVE it! Another thing is a Starbuck's on almost every corner. It's terrible for the purse, but I just can't get enough. But one of my favorite things that we have found here in Chicago is...
On Saturday for our date day, we got Sushi from our favorite place called...Sushi Station and then came home and watched Indians play (unfortunately they lost), but we had a fun time anyway. Joel like Sushi too, but I must say I am the connosiere of Sushi in the family. I just can't get enough of the stuff and I sometimes even crave it.
Now some people may be saying that I'm crazy for liking Sushi, and I probably would have said the same thing before I tried it. But after you try it, it really isn't too bad. I think some people get caught up in the name and what it actually is. Don't worry though, not all sushi is raw. And it's actually very good for you.
So here is my blog about Sushi. For those of you that may feel a twinge in your stomach-I apologize, but I had to share this love of Sushi.
