1 Year Old!

Well, our blog is 1 year old!

We started this blog on Aug. 26th of last year not really knowing where it would go… and although we haven’t kept up with it very much, we’re happy to give you spontaneous updates about our life together. ūüôā

So who knows, maybe next year we will have more in store for you on our little blog- but right now we’re still in our infant/toddler stage.

Thanks for all of your support so far! We appreciate every comment, like, and view! ‚̧

Flashback Friday: Spring Florida Trip

So you thought we went to Florida back in January, right? Yeah…

Well, we went back just 4 months later in April! This was halfway through Chico’s 3 month Spring Tour with the guys and it was a MUCH needed time to hop a plane see him out on the road. Here are some snapshots (do they call ’em that anymore??) from my time on the road with him…

Can’t stop the band from stepping out into the crowd!

Morning view of the Jacksonville shore.

Taking my seat… right behind the sound guy.

Taking a break for some Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt.

Green Room Girls.

I was so happy to spend time with the other band wives/girlfriends/fiances too! (They keep me sane when Chico’s away!)

More flashbacks to come… and more present day updates, too! (fingers crossed)

Text Tuesday: Lights Edish

Hello Party People!

Let’s face it- it’s been a little rocky updating this blog… so much has happened! (Maybe we’ll do some Throwback Thursdays and Flashback Fridays to catch you up…)

I’ve been lucky enough to have Chico home all summer, but the time has come for the fall touring to begin. Even though he hasn’t left yet, with all of the rehearsals and prep for the tour, it almost seems like it starts a month before the tour actually begins! While I’m working during the day and he’s rehearsing at night, we’ve had to start getting in our groove of being apart.

Anyways, Chico’s been playing with some lighting rigs the past few weeks and here is one outrageous text I received just the other day…

To give you a better idea of what this lighting rig looked like, see for yourself:

But you know, there is something we can all learn from this:

Don’t switch the blade on the guy in shades… Oh no!

Life… and Lots of It!

Well, it’s been a minute… or more like 2 months! I’ve been working hard on my other blog¬†, and this one has seemed to slip away from me! A LOT has happened! What’s a better way than to sum it up with some (some!) Instagram photos? None. Here they are:

1) New Home Decor:

2) Casual Brunch Dates

3) Fancy Dinner Dates

4) Going to shows for fun (The Head & The Heart)

5&6) Going to shows for work… (The Ryman!)

7) Hanging with the parents.

8&9) Hanging with the cousins.

10) Coloring Easter Eggs… with Me, Myself, and I!

More about this Me, Myself, and I business later on… stay tuned.

Love, Aly

PS- I’ve missed you! (yes you!)

Text Tuesday: The Bachelor

We’re bringin’ it back- Text Tuesday (and blogging…)! We’ve been missing on here for a while… I bet you can guess what we’ve been doing based on today’s Text Tuesday.

Here is a text from 2 weeks ago (Aly blue, Chico white):

Quoting Meatloaf to say that he would do anything for me except record such a “horrific” show as The Bachelor. Hmmph…

Fast forward to earlier Monday afternoon (Aly blue, Chico white):

Oh how times have changed!

Any of you getting sucked into The Bachelor? Who do you think will win?

Juice Lovin’

We all have our favorite smoothies and juices. It’s no secret that we love Jamba Juice – Razzmatazz is my favorite! But when Chico recently watched a documentary on juicing we took our love for blended drinks to the next level.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the…

Breville Juicer!!

It’s been a hit at our house this past week. We’ve had a lot of fun dreaming up juice combinations!

Every morning this week, Chico has made me a new juice combination to bring to work for breakfast. Here are the results:

Green Apple, Pear, and Pineapple

Strawberry Blackberry

Peach, Strawberry, and Blackberry

Grapefruit, Pear, and Peach

Chico was even brave enough to make his own veggie drink:

Kale, Cucumber, Celery, Green Apple, Lemon, and Ginger

We are even thinking about doing a juice cleanse soon. What are some of your favorite juice combinations?

The Worst Day Of Every Year…

I wear my white Chuck Taylor’s just about every day. I love them. I love them so much that it sometimes has caused problems in our relationship. Not that Alyssa doesn’t like the white Chuck Taylor’s, but being the 7 year-old trapped in a grown-ups body that I am, I wear them until they are falling off my feet…literally. Then I buy a new pair. Once a year – before every big tour, I buy a new pair…and it’s the worst day of the year.

Everybody knows that Chuck Taylor’s look better dirty – so when I have to put on brand new white ones it makes me self conscious. I have a sudden urge to play in the mud just to color them up a bit.

Last year I felt like my Chuck’s held up pretty well. I suppose we weren’t on the road as much, and I was feeling like I could get a few more months out of them. Then I started to notice towards the end of the year that Alyssa would drop subtle hints. Whether it was conscious or not she would, without fail, suggest I take a look at any shoe store we passed. So I broke down – I bought a new pair in the middle of December, but did I wear them? Nope.

They sat in their box in the bottom of my closet. They sat there for months until I looked down one day at my feet and thought, “It’s time.” Personally I felt like they could have lasted for another 6 months, but marriage is about sacrifice right?

So I put them on stepped out the door for a bite with some buddies and sure enough, “Oh you got new shoes?”. Dangit…why did I do this? So long 2011 Chuck’s…
