My friend Amelia and her newlywed husband Mike had a totally rad 80s reception on Saturday night.  They got married at the beach a little over a month ago, and had the reception here in Little Rock this weekend.  It was a blast!!  Everyone looked so cute in all of their 80s outfits and the music was great!!!  Here are some pics from the party. Notice the cake. That was another great creation from The Crazy Cake Ladies!  There were too many pics to choose, so I am just going to show them in a slideshow!  Enjoy!

I got a chance to go to the Alabama-Arkansas game in Fayetteville this weekend thanks to my friend Trenia snagging us some tickets!!  Thanks Trenia and friends of Trenia back in Tuscaloosa for the tickets!!!!  We had a great time at the game.  How could we not have fun with Alabama blowing out Arkansas 49-14!!!!   We had a great time taunting a few Arkansas fans that were sitting near us.  It was all good fun and they took it well.  I can’t wait to go to work tomorrow and enjoy the victory even more!  Here are some pictures from the game!

On the Road Again… September 16, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — thejamesfam @ 10:36 am

I know it has been a while since I have posted, and we have been pretty busy.  We went to Alabama a few weeks ago to visit my family and to go to my class reunion.  Hurricane Gustov was raging at the time, so everything did not go as planned.  We did not get to see all of the family and friends that we wanted to visit due to the weather being so bad.  We hope to see you all at Christmas!  Also, my class reunion was semi-cancelled.  The event was initially supposed to be held at the new baseball stadium, but that got rained out.  Some of us did manage to make it out and meet up at a local brewery pub.  The reunion has been rescheduled, but unfortunately we won’t be able to make it back.  It was good to see everyone, lots of whom I have not seen in 10 years!!!  Here are some pics from our time at home.
