Dreams do come true...

In the past few month I have talked about dreams a lot, and last week one of my dreams came true.  It was a glorious day.  Before I get into that, I would like to share my list of dreams or things I would like to do before I die.  Here they are:

1. Obtain as many degrees as I can and then become a janitor at BYU
2. Have dreads (I told Megan I don't care how old I am, I can be 70 and bald with a little bit of hair on the sides and I will still do this at some point in my life)
3. Beat Steve Sandberg at Trivial Pursuit
4. Do an Ironman
5. Buy a motorcycle

Well, thanks to increasing gas prices and an awesome wife, the winner is... dream # 5!  Thanks Megan, you are the coolest wife in the world.




So, here's to dreams coming true!  (I just hope I don't die, or worse...)

Yay! I am so glad to see a helmet on you, James. Sean would be envious, I think I will not show him this post.....

James said...

Megan requires me to, and I think it is kind of dumb not to wear one. I hope you guys are doing well and that the baby comes soon!

James and Megan said...

What's worse than dying James?

James said...

You know what is worse than dying... you told me that I need to think about it every time I go out and ride.

SO Jealous! Make sure you don't ride in Provo. That is a death sentence in itself.

James said...

Haha, thanks for the advice!

Heidi said...

I'm happy for you. Terry loves his. It does help a lot with the gas budget, but it's also one of the few fun things he gets to do. It's an "out" for him. We have a helmet rule too. Never forget it.

@Heidi - Don't hate on the slippers...

Hey James - Congrats! I am happy for you. And hey, I know someone you could do an ironman with -- my bro. Mike was lined up to do 7 of them until he broke his femur and pelvic bone in multiple places. He is looking forward to building up to one in a year or two when he is completely healed. ~Laura
