Going For The Gold!

After months of preparation and hard work, Spring Show is once again upon us! 

I have to say it feels really good to just be part of the cast and not directing after being the director for two years in a row! :)  And I know poor Kipper is ready for the costume shop that is our house to be boxed up until next year! 

Now here is the big question!! 
Have you ordered your tickets for this year's JWC Spring Show "Going For The Gold" yet? 

Friday, March 2nd or Saturday, March 3rd. 
Tickets are $15 for general seating (which is first come, first serve) or $20 for reserved seating. 
     All tickets include:
           - A beer, wine, and appetizer reception before the show and at intermission
           - Program book
           - And some great laughs! :)

There are buttons on the home page so it is easy to order your tickets! http://www.jwcfw.com/

You know you are dying to see Eden and MaKenzie in action!!! 

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you there!!!

I Swear We Are Both Medicated :)

If you know us, you know Kipper and I are both crazy in our own ways. If you don't actually know us, but just read my blog, you know Kipper and I are both crazy in our own ways.

Several of our friends tell us all the time if we had a reality TV show they would totally watch it (which of course they would because they are our FRIENDS!) but really I have never thought we were that entertaining.

Yet after hearing this over and over for sometime, I actually started to pay attention to some of the crap that came out of our mouths.  I mean the Usual Suspects always text each other quotes of the day/night and yes several have been compliments of Kipper or I, but that is just the tip of the ice burg compared to some of the random conversations that take place between the two of us. Holy Moly! 

Here are just a few examples of what I mean....

     Me: Is it odd I sort of like Apple Martin's name?

     Kipper: Yes

     Me: So you don't want to name our future child that.  

     Kipper:  Um..NO!

     Me: How about Blueberry Martin?

     Kipper: Again, NO!

...L o n g   P a u s e....

     Kipper: You know if we did name a child Blueberry, I could totally say "You're my boy Blue" That would be so cool!

A few "quotes of the day" compliments of the Martin family. (In true quote of the day fashion, I am not going to tell you who said what...guessing that is half the fun! lol!) 
  • "I need to take a Vicodin. I blog well on Vicodin."
  • "Babies, puppies, bounce house and naked Barbies Oh My!"
  • "We are currently being baked by solar flares...good thing we have a magnetosphere."
  • "Some days I feel like walking in a room, throwing glitter and yelling "Here I Am Bitches!"
  • "When I was little, I used to practice being a priest. I would make communion wafers out of bread with a shot glass. I even had an alter"
  • "That cheese tastes like what I imagine the stock show would taste like"
  • "What did he do, suckle a baby calf?"
  •  "Remind me to tell you about the sugar fields in Uruguay."
  •  "We have fallen down a redneck rabbit hole!"
  • (Watching Doomsday Preppers) " Honey, these are my people!!!" 
  • "I totally have a  new fundraiser idea for the Catholic church...charge a fee to try on the pope hat, extra to have your photo made in it. Don't laugh, cause you all know you would want to do it."

A Big Moment For The Martin Family

Tomorrow is a big day, that has been long awaited in the Martin household. Kipper and I have an appointment with the high risk OB/GYN to start the necessary steps to grow our little family.

Yet before we can really focus on getting pregnant we have to make some changes to get me in order, with the biggest being, getting me off my Adderall. I can't begin to explain how much the thought of  "detoxing" off a drug I have depended on for the last 9 years terrifies me.

I literally have made myself sick over the anxiety of knowing this was coming. But no matter how hard this might be at first I know the possibilities of the end result are going to be worth more than words can describe.

I went back and forth about even writing this blog tonight, but in the end decided I wanted to share it with everyone. (I am sure our close friends and family are sick of hearing about it) 1) I figure the more people who know what we are about to embark on, the more that can pray for us and 2) It is giving everyone a heads up that there is a good chance I might be a unstable or extra crazy over the next several months as we figure this out.

Every night I thank God for blessing me with an amazing husband, loving family and incredibly supportive friends who have helped me cope with the emotions that have surrounded all aspects of this journey so far. I know tomorrow marks the start to a long road, but for Kipper and I it is a big moment.

Until them I keep reminding myself of my motto:
