Phoenix Suns Opening Game!!

Woo!  Go SUNS!  Last Thursday evening, we ventured down to the opening game of the PHOENIX SUNS, with our friends, Jake and Kayla!  The evening started with a delicious dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe and was followed by an enjoyable night at the game.

We got to the arena a bit early...over an hour actually, but if you know Jeremy and his love for basketball (especially Phoenix Suns basketball), then that shouldn't surprise you at all.  We explored the Team Shop for a bit where I found a great deal on my new Phoenix Suns hat (only $6.99!) and picked up a few presents for my sister-in-law, Heather.  (Heather, we're going to put them in the mail to you as soon as possible, I promise!) 

After our shopping, I was very excited to see my most favorite Phoenix Suns Dancer...Jenni, from Season 7 of The Bachelor!  In case you don't remember, Jenni was one of the final 2 girls for the Bachelor, Brad, to pick from.  However, much to the surprise of Bachelor fans all over the world, he didn't choose her OR the other girl, Deanna!!  He chose to stay a Bachelor!  Is he allowed to do that?  Oh it was so sad!!  Anyway, I was really excited to see her and kinda wanted to take a picture with her...but she left and I lost my moment.  Oh well, I took a picture with Amare Stoudemire instead. :)

The game was a lot of fun, besides all the bad calls by the refs and the fact that the Hornets could not miss a shot, which caused us to lose!  Boooo!  Oh well, GO SUNS!

On a few side notes, Jeremy got my ring cleaned while he was in California and it's so sparkly that I can't stop looking at it!  I never take my ring off, so it's gathered a bit of grime since it's last cleaning.  I don't remember seeing my pink sapphires look so pink, since he put it on my finger at our wedding. :)

So sparkly that it distracted me during the game!

Also, while in California, Jeremy picked up our FREE one year wedding anniversary cake, provided by the bakery that did our wedding cake.  Yummy!  It's a cute little, six inch cake decorated with frosting roses and a little sign.  We got to pick from any of their cake flavors, fillings and frostings, so we decided on chocolate cake, strawberry mousse filling and buttercream frosting.  Delicious!

Hi Babe,
Hey I beat Kayla on making a comment. Great posting on your trip to THE GAME. Just too bad they lost. It was good seeing you both yesterday and glad cousin Jasper got a chance to see you both as well.
Love you,
Mom
