A Constant Battle.....

Joey and his brother Jeremiah are HUGE football fans. But there is just one little problem..... Miah is a Packers fan and Joey is a Lions fan. I know I know your probably wondering why in the world would he be a Lions fan, but he stuck with Barrys team after Barry left. Joe is a true fan, no matter what anyone says. Anyway, as you know every Thanksgiving the Packers play and Lions and every year the Pack dominates the poor little kitties, I mean Lions. It is always an on going battle between those two brothers but it never is a dull moment when those two are around.
Belinda and I always joke about how Joe and Miah are twins born 10 years apart. Sometimes its scary how they act around each other.

Green Bay Packers

Last year Joe and I went to Chicago and Green Bay for a Green Bay Packers game with his brother, Jeremiah, his wife Belinda and their two kids Sam and Elisabeth. It was one of the funnest vacations I have ever been on. We went to the game where Brett Favre tied the Dan Marinos record for most touchdowns. It was pretty awesome, that was the first pro football game Joe and I had ever been to. The Packers won and that was the first time Miah and Belinda had ever been to a game where the Packers had won. Belinda cried she was so happy.
Were happy to say that we are going back to Chicago and Green Bay to see yet another game. But.... there is a story behind this game. This special game where the Packers are to play the Vikings, on September 8th, the open seasoner game. This was supposed to be the game where Brett Favre retired his number. Well.... whether you are a football fan or not you know that Favre is NOT retiring and doesn't even want to be with the Packers anymore..... what the heck is that all about?? But all I have to say about the whole thing is AJ Hawk here I come!

Our First Blog

So this is our very first blog on our blog page, very exciting! We have been dating for over 4 years now and were not yet married. I know I know, your thinking 'how have they been together for so long without yet being married??' Well first off I was 16 when we first started dating. I am now 20 and Joe is 22, I have been out of high school for only 2 years.

Right now our lives are a bit hectic. Joe works for a small plumbing company which treats him really good. He is currently enrolled in Salt Lake Community College in the plumbing program and finishing up his Assiciates Degree. He has 2 classes left until he graduates at the end of the summer semester 08. He loves plumbing, but its not really his "dream job". Eventually he wants to join the police academy.

I am happy to say that I am almost finished with Cosmetology at Salt Lake Community College, I graduate at the end of summer semester 08. I started Cosmetology Spring 07 and have been loving every minute of it. The big thing that happened this year school wise was I competed in the Skills USA, formerly known as VICCA, in the Nail Care division and I went all the way to Nationals where I took Gold. I am proud to say that I am the national champion of Nail Care. It has been a quick year, but very fun and exciting!

We are both at a time in our lives right now where we are so happy to be sharing with each other. Its hectic, but its so exciting and fast paced we never miss a beat!
