Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Last weekend Stephen, Preston and I took a little trip to Oklahoma City to see some friends. We started our adventure at Kate's 3rd birthday party. It was at a super fun gymnastics place, Preston loved it! I can't believe these 2 are getting so big! Doesn't seem like they should be 3 yet. We were running late, so unfortunately I forgot my camera and didn't get any pics of the 2 of them together. =( We got to go by Ashley and Kyle's place after the party for a little lunch and to meet their new addition Harris. He is absolutely precious! Great catching up with them, even though it was brief!

We then headed to Kris and Kyle's house for a little fun. We went to dinner at Ted's with the kiddos, LOVE that place! Then Stephen and Kyle took the kids to a trampoline place while Kris and I flashed back to our younger years when we used to scream for New Kids on the Block (NKOTB). That's right, we went to the reunion concert. Boys II Men opened the show and they were actually really good! Very talented vocalists! 98 Degrees followed them, and although we got to see Nick Lachey, they were looking a little old and were not as talented of vocalists as Boys II Men (in my opinion). Not to mention we really didn't know many of their songs. Then it was time for NKOTB, They hit the stage and immediately brought down the house with Step by Step. They pulled out all their old dance moves and all, it was hilarious! They sang a few of their new songs (which we obviously didn't know), so that was not as much fun. But when they sang their old songs, we did a lot of laughing. It was fun! They mentioned on several occasions though that it had been 25 years since they'd been on tour (which really made us feel old). The best was when we went to the bathroom after the show and two young girls said, "they are really kind-of hot for being 30 something year old men!" Ouch!! Great flashback concert, mainly because of the memories that came back, spending time with Kris and the hilarity at how crazy we used to be over groups that now just look kind of old! Good times!
