Entry 519: Celebrity Apprentice Fantasy

Lance absolutely loves watching the Celebrity Apprentice and a few years ago he started a Celebrity Apprentice game. Before the first episode you pick what place you think each contestant will get and when they are voted out you will subtract your pick from when they were voted out. The winner is the person who gets the lowest point total. If you want to play click the link below and fill it out. Fantasy Celebrity Apprentice Link

Entry 518: Losing My Mind

Julie's mom, Nancy, decided to go to her sister's house in Breckinridge, Colorado for a few days to get away. Lance told her that when she was ready to come back, all she had to do was to call Lance and he would make her plane reservations back. Nancy called Lance and said she would like to come back on Wednesday, February 20th and Lance got right on it and found a great price on a flight back. Everything looked great, until Nancy went to the airport and tried to get her ticket. Lance unfortunately didn't check the ticket real well and made the reservation for March 20th and not February 20th. Luckily the ticket counter was very understanding and got Nancy on a flight that day. Before you think it; Lance did not do this on purpose.

Entry 517: Late Valentine's Day Celebration

Unfortunately Lance had parent-teacher conferences on Valentine's Day and didn't get home until 8:00 in the evening. Fortunately we both had the next day off, so we decided to celebrate than. Julie is a big fan of Blue Koi (an awesome restaurant that is downtown), so we decided to go there and grab some lunch. Lance had never eaten there before, but a friend of his told him to try the Thai Pot Roast over noodles. It was by far one of the best meals Lance had ever had. If you have never been there, we would both highly recommend it. After the meal, Julie really wanted to see the new Nicholas Spark's movie, Safe Haven. Lance really enjoyed the movie because it had some action in it, but Julie didn't like it as much because it had some scarier parts in it. Not to ruin it for anyone, but someone dies in the movie (that is a big joke for us because someone always dies in a Nicholas Sparks movie). All in all it was a great Valentine's Day.

Entry 516: Tough Times

We have been keeping it quiet for some time, but back in October Julie's dad, Kent, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It was a very tough time for the family, but with the help of hospice his remaining time was relatively pain free. He passed away last Monday the 4th and he will always be missed. Click on the link below and you can see a video that we made to highlight Kent's life. Kent Video
