A Dream Come True

One of my dreams came true on Monday!  Jason surprised me with front row tickets to see TIM GUNN!!!!!!!  I have been a Tim Gunn fan for many, many, many years.  He is in my top 3 list of famous people I adore.  I told Jason as we were walking down the sidewalk to go into the building- "I am happy right now".  It makes me want to cry because I haven't felt truly happy in a very long time.  So from 7:30-10:30 I let myself be happy.

Waiting on Tim to come out :)   
If you don't know Tim, he is a fashion consultant and TV personality (best known for Project Runway).

YAY!!!!  I can't believe it!!!!  It's TIM GUNN!!!!!
We were SOOO close!!!

I bought his book so I was able to MEET Tim for a book signing!

He was so nice and I was SO nervous!  I had so much to say but couldn't say it!  I did talk to him but I have no clue what I said!  I like the picture below because he touched me! lol

I LOVE him!!!!  He patted me on the back when I was leaving!!!!!

And of course, I had to get my baby girl a book signed too ;)
I didn't think Kohen would care to have one, lol

Football Season

We love the Razorbacks.  Win or lose.  One of my favorite things is watching the Hogs, whether it be at the game, at a tailgating party or at home with Jason and the kids.  Another favorite of mine is making sure we have on the proper attire for game day :)

This was for the 1st Razorback game this season:

Saylor can call the Hogs too :)

This was for last weeks game:

This was for the Bama game:
Wondering where Kohen is??.....

This was Kohen's attire for the game!  I didn't have the heart to make him change!

Blue Angels

We went to the air show to watch the Blue Angels last weekend.  I thought about my Dad a million times.  Glad I had on sunglasses all day.  It was such a struggle to me to enjoy that day because he should have been there with us.  He WOULD have been there with us.  He loves(ed) the Blue Angels and any and all aircraft. Last time we saw the Blue Angels in KC, I bought my Dad a T-shirt and surprised him with it when we came to Arkansas for a visit (this was when we lived in KC).  Anyway...I saw the perfect t-shirt I would have bought for him this time.  Devastating.    

We were supposed to meet Jason's parents there, but we found out last minute they had a change of plans.  So, we met up with our neighbors while we were there.  
 We had to walk so far to get to the show.  We were running late which meant we had to park FAR away.  At least I got a workout carrying Kohen most the way!

This was the first plane we saw.  It felt like a punch in the gut thinking about how my Dad should be seeing this plane.  He would have LOVED this day.

 The Waldron's

Yall will just have to forgive me...  I'm just having such a hard time with this blog post...  It just sucks picturing my Mom sitting at her computer looking at these pictures of airplanes and I KNOW exactly what she's thinking. :(  
 He should be HERE.

This is what got me through the day.  Hanging on for dear life to my little boy.  He made it possible for me to step one foot in front of the other and continue.  From plane to plane, telling myself "Just do the next thing".

 Kohen just could not believe his eyes.  He loved every single minute.

 Best Friends Kohen and Ashton.  Best Friends Jason and Adam. :)  
 I wish I had a picture of Ashley and I.  Unfortunately, she too lost her Dad, suddenly, at a young age.  She was one of my best friends before, but after going through this with my Dad, I don't know what I would do without her.  She knows.  It's just that simple... She just knows.  She knows by the look in my eye what kind of day I'm having.  She knows what to say, when to say it and when to just back off.  I feel I do the same for her.     

 Both of these boys are having the time of their life!

 NOT my idea of father-son time!!!!!  ;)

The Blue Angels

 I bought Kohen some sunglasses while we were there because he couldn't look at the sky, it was so sunny.  
 I love my baby boy.

 Here they go!

 It was absolutely amazing.  

Bitter sweet day.

On a side note...I've started grief counseling.
