Colt McCoy and I crossed paths

Here we are tonight, one of us looking drastically better than the other. Dang it, I wasn't planning to run into my current football hero while attending the amazing #4 in the nation ranked University of Texas volleyball team playing against the #3 team, Nebraska. Colt McCoy was there chillin' with fellow teammate, Quan Cosby, when I asked Colt to pose with me. I was pumped to see my Longhorns football star this close and personal! The actual volleyball game was exciting as well. Texas won the first game and it was thrilling to be there. Those were some talented women!
Then the Cornhuskers won the next game. You can't actually tell how TALL they are from this picture.
UT won the third game! We left quickly after that so I could get Lindsey home since she has early morning seminary.
They play five games total, the best three out of five wins. I haven't heard the results yet, but my friend, Jillian, is going to email me the results of the game.
Here's Colt, probably thinking to himself, "Hey Kelly, thanks for your support. Everyone is always stalking me, but I am more than happy to accommodate my loyal fans like you" as I capture on my little cheap camera, this adorable photo of the number one quarterback in the United States of America not to mention Heisman trophy candidate! We love you, Colt McCoy!! Hook 'em Horns!
Thank you for making my day, Jillian, and organizing this group activity!

Thanks for coming Kelly! It was so fun! I'll be posting the pic of Simone with Colt and Quan in just a minute....SO FUN! And you looked great in that pic!
you are a total celeb, Kelly! Way to go. It's a good thing you were wearing your UT sweatshirt!!
No problem! It was so fun, and I'm glad we got to see some "celebrities." Oh, I called Tannie to ask what she was jealous of, and she said she wishes she had gone camping and to a fun concert all in one week too!

How fun to meet Colt! I always cheer for him when we watch their games. He looks like he is 16!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
