45 years ago today...

...my mom and dad tied the knot! I made a card for them. Pics under the cut, and some stuff from their trip! They took a lot of pictures while they were in Colorado. This first batch is from Colorado State University.

First, the card:

The CSU campus:

The music building, where I spent many happy and frustrating days!

Moby Arena. So named because it looks like a whale. Yup, that's the true story behind the name!

My dorm, Parmelee Hall. I lived there almost the entire time I was in school. 

"The Oval"- right outside the music building. Many classes and study groups were held here. It was my favorite place on campus.

Cam the Ram- the school mascot. This statue wasn't there when I left...it's a recent addition. The buildings behind it are "the Towers"- Durward and Westfall Halls. I almost lived in Durward because it had a floor just for performing arts students. I really regret not living there, though Parmelee was admittedly a nicer dorm.

CAM is so named because CSU used to be Colorado A&M- until around 1948. I wish Mom had taken pictures of Hughes Stadium. Lots of fond memories of playing in the marching band at football games!

Finally, the Lory Student Center. The bookstore, a theater, food court, bowling alley, ballrooms, and conference rooms all are housed in there.

Damn, I really wish I could have gone on this trip. I'm feeling a bit homesick now, even though I haven't been in Colorado in thirteen years!

Next batch of pictures (when I get them) are from Broomfield- my high school, our old house and church.

  • Boo!

    Getting ready for Halloween! I found a great haunted doll house kit at Michaels and assembled it right away. Here it is with Briony and Hairdorables…

  • I Want My MTV! Part 2.

    My delayed birthday present arrived today! It's the Funko Pop MTV astronaut and it is so cute. It's sitting on Courtney's shelf now. It's so 80s!…

  • New clothes for Courtney!

    Very 80s. I think this looks like pages from an Esprit catalog! Looks like another mix and match set. I had a pair of jelly shoes in the 8th…
