3 years + 11

Posted in Anniversary, Becca, Love, Wedding on June 4, 2008 by superman1224

It’s been 3 years to the day since we first said “I do”. 11 1/2 since our first kiss. When you’ve been with someone for so long it’s hard imagine never growing tired of them. Not my wife. When you have a wife that’s like mine, things are always interesting. I mean what’s not to love about someone who knows your favorite show. Who can make you feel like a kid again. Who tells stories like this one. Or how about someone who makes sacrifices for other people. Someone who makes your dreams come true. Or just someone to watch the game with. These are just a few examples of what a AMAZING (I told you I only use it when it actualy applies) person my wife is. God has blessed me in more ways I can count just for sending her my way. For her to look past all the hair, and flannel. To ignore the ripped up jeans, and the screaming music, and find someone she could spend the rest of her life with. I am forever greatful. I love you sweetheart.

Happy Anniversary!


For All You Love Birds Out There.

Happy Birthday Becca!

Posted in 25, birthdays, Love, wife on September 5, 2007 by superman1224


So today is my wife’s 25th birthday. Those of you who don’t know her, she is the most beautiful, honest, hardworking, determined, loving, caring, fun loving, goofy, unique person in the world. Those of you who do know her probably could add a lot more things to that list. She hates the spotlight so I’ll probably get some flack for this post but she deserves it. I just can’t help but to share with the whole world that she is the best thing in my life and each year is a gift to not only me but everyone around her.

Happy Birthday Babe!

Thinking Blogger Award

Posted in Design, Love, Me, MUD & STEEL, Pay It Forward, Thinking blogger, Worship on April 19, 2007 by superman1224


First off I would like to thank Aaron for this award. If I could tag him back I would. His blog is a great inspiration to me. You all should check out what he has to say.

So I have been informed by the Blogfather that I am to tag five other people who’s blog makes me think. It is a difficult task to choose among many qualified candidates. So please if you didn’t make the cut you are no less special.

1. Worship City: There are so many things we have in common. I love to hear his incite on worship, music and other random topics. I hope one day we can go to a concert together my man.

2. Coming in a close second is CEC Worship: A fellow graphic designer and worship leader, Mr. Klampert always has positive things to say. He laughs at my jokes and we share a great deal of the same interests. He also provides a great resource for other worship leaders. It is a cool little hub where you can find others set lists and be inspired to try a new song. You are awesome man. Keep it up!

3. Ragamuffin Soul: This guy is awesome. His blog is so entertaining. There is just so much stuff to look at. His worship confessionals were part of the inspiration behind “Mud & Steel” not so much in the content but being able to put a face, a voice, and a person behind the words written in a blog. Los you are the man.

4. To Be The Man: We’ve never really talked but I read his blog everyday. He offers great opinions on just about anything and he is right on the money. I urge everyone to check him out.

5. Tolleson Design Blog: I don’t think he will pass on the love but I know he deserves the love. Steve Tolleson is one of the greatest designers of all time. His book soak wash rinse spin is probably one of the best design books I have ever seen and got me through my Jr. and Senior years at CCS. I urge anyone who is interested in design to check him out and buy his book

So that’s my 5. Pass on the love.

Okaaaaaaaaaaaay The Stanley Cup Playoffs Have Begun……Yeeeeeeah!

Posted in ESPN, Hockey, Love, Playoffs, Red Wings on April 12, 2007 by superman1224

So the playoffs have begun. This is a special time of year….well at least it used to be. I remember as a young lad watching the Wings fly to glory until the weeee hours of the morning with my mommy. She was a big fan….if they were in the playoffs. I would sit and watch every playoff game just as I did every regular season game. Now-a-days in the post strike era I don’t think I watched an entire game all season. I don’t know if it’s because Stevie Y is gone or Shanny being a Ranger now or what. It just doesn’t seem the same. Well I am going to try my best to rekindle the old Redwings flame this post season. I am hoping they can at least get ast the first round this year. I will be updating the outcome of the games here on this blog as well as adding my own commentary and observations.

Here is the schedule for the Wings and Flames.

Flames @ Red Wings 4/12/07 7:00 PM ET
Flames @ Red Wings 4/15/07 1:00 PM ET
Red Wings @ Flames 4/17/07 10:00 PM ET
Red Wings @ Flames 4/19/07 10:00 PM ET
Flames @ Red Wings 4/21/07 3:00 PM ET*
Red Wings @ Flames 4/22/07 TBA*
Flames @ Red Wings 4/24/07 TBA*

Growing Up

Posted in About Me, Life, Love, Me, Who We Are, Work on April 10, 2007 by superman1224

The verdict is in and after much deliberation it has been proven without a reasonable doubt that I am immature. Now don’t all rush to make your comments yet. I’m sure many of you will be able to confirm this statement with staggering quickness. Loving Superman, reading comics, and playing video games aren’t the smoking guns here. I think I may have a little bit of the Peter Pan syndrome. I run and hide from everyday responsibility like it wants my lunch money. Everyday I am reminded that I am not ready for a kid yet. I guess because I am too selfish. I still want time to play…..everyday. Couple that with a horrible case of procrastination and what do you get? A poor wife who has to remember everything. I’m not really sure why I am posting this other than the fact that I’ve had it on my mind for a while. I know that there are things in life that you just can’t avoid. I just don’t want to become one of those people that all they do from the time they wake up in the morning to the time they go to bed is work and by work I mean work 9-5 and then go home and by the time they make dinner clean up and do things around the house it’s time to go to bed and do it all over again. That’s when you wake up one day and you’re 50 and you are wondering what happen to your 30’s. So where is the balance? Where does everything fit? Maybe some of you 30 somethings can give me some advice on how to ease into responsibility without the kicking and screaming?

It is time once again. These are my top 5 of the week.

5. “Take Me Home” By After Midnight Project. Check them out here.

4. “Free Bird” By Lynard Skynard. I recently watched Elizabeth town (great movie) and this song was in it and I was like “Oh yeah that is a great song.” So that’s why it’s on here.

3. “You Could be Happy” By Snow Patrol. This was in the Smallville episode Promise. It’s a great song.

2. “Love, Reign O’er Me” By Pearl Jam. Originally done by the Who, this song is excellent. I haven’t seen the movie yet but heard it is great.

1. “Out Of Breath” By Life House. This is on their second record Stanley ClimbFall.

Post your top 5!
