And so 2011 begins…

  • Snow. They’re talking snow possibly over the next couple days here in Vegas. If we get an inch, they may have to declare a snow day and shut everything down.
  • Starting off 2011 reading “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand.  Great true story of determination and survival centered around Louie Zamperini–a juvenile delinquent-turned-Olympic runner-turned-Army hero. If you’re looking for a read, recommend it.
  • Pondering doing the 13 mile Half-Marathon in San Diego in June of this year.
  • Had the best pizza I have had in over 20+ years in Vegas on Thursday night with some great friends at Grimaldi’s.  Heard they filter their water so it tastes like New York water…whatever the case, man it was amazing.
  • Something tells me the Packers could be dangerous in the playoffs starting next weekend. Problem is they are a road wild-card team that would have to win three games to just get to the Super  Bowl.
  • My wife and I are addicted to the show “Parenthood”. Not sure anyone else is watching, but for some reason it resonates with us.
  • Saw two movies last week.  True Grit: Thumbs up. Social Network (I know, a little late): Also Thumbs up. Is there anything better than movie popcorn?
  • Excited to re-start guys small group at our local PT’s Pub early Wednesday morning.  We’ll be reading “Crazy Love” by Francis Chan. Always an awesome time and we have some newbees joining in.
  • Football playoffs / Bowl Games / College Basketball…great time of year.
  • Starting to prep for weekend speaking to our students at their Winter Retreat in the middle of Jan. Love hanging with students and spending a couple days in Utah will be awesome. We have some fantastic students at The Crossing.
  • New Favorite Thing: White Cheddar Popcorn. I keep stashing bags from Fresh N Easy in all the key locations of my life.  Awesome.

  1. – How about this: you agree to run the Marathon in June and I’ll run it with you (I’ll even put you up for your stay).
    – My wife watches Parenthood and I catch it sometimes.
