Last weekend was "girls weekend", spent at the cottage of my friend "Tori's" in-laws. It was so generous of them to let us relax there for the weekend and we had a great time. While we gathered around the table for meals and games, Tori kept kindly reminding us to use a coaster under our cool beverages. Apparently, mother in law is not too keen on water rings on her table and is very quick to notice when new ones appear. I can't blame her, I have been known to be anal about lesser things. It kind of became a game of who could catch someone else not using a coaster and bust them. I was loving it, because I knew I could finally write about one of my all time favorite Danny Tanner moments. 

One of the best Full House episodes ever is Jesse and Rebecca's wedding. Growing up we had this two-parter on VHS (taped off of TV) and watched it all the time. Who can resist when Jesse sings "Forever" to Rebecca, the montage of them growing up, and the choir joining in? I could cry just thinking about it! Then Rebecca joins in at the end...ahhh it's just so magical.  Also, can Rebecca's veil be any bigger?

The reception is held in the Tanner living room. Danny stands up on the staircase to make his toast. In classic Danny style, he says,

"You know, as I look at all you happy, smiling people with your glasses raised, I can't help but think there are so many of you and so few coasters to go around...."

Oh Danny! So hilarious. So know you see how excited I was to hear about Tori's MIL loving the coaster usage. I hope she's reading this! :)

My credentials

I was digging through some old boxes in my basement this weekend. I came across the paper plate award I received from the field hockey team in High School (circa 1999?). I guess this is kind of like my resume for the blog.

"Sweeper" was my position (the last line of defense between before the goalie). That basically means that I was too slow/lazy to play anything else, so I would just hang out by the goal kicking up dirt and dreaming about Zack. Also notice the drawing on the plate. That's a bell, in case you couldn't tell.

Receiving this award was one of my prouder moments. Never mind awards like Most Valuable Player or Most Improved Player, the "Most likely to know every last detail about Saved by the Bell" award is the highest honor.

Friends Forever,
