bienvenidos a miami

last night we headed over to miami for the dolphins/colts football game! as im sure most of you know, im not THE BIGGEST FOOTBALL FAN in the world, but im married to him so...
i was excited to go because we were going (without the kids) with our good friends, ben and katie smith, from the ward.
we got to miami early enough to stop somewhere for dinner. we wanted to try something a little different. we decided on jamaican food and plugged it in the GPS. we ended up at this place:
yes, thats right, it is called "nice mon".
on the menu were things like oxtails and curried goat. this was the real deal folks! while all five of the people in the restaurant were watching us, we decided to head next door to a very local restaurant called chilis....ok i suppose some of you have probably heard of it.
eating at chili's was quite an experience in and of itself. i dont want to go into too many details, but im pretty sure its safe to say that our waitress didnt like us because we were white. i dont usually talk about race and all that mumbo jumbo, but she was quite obvious about it. she was rude enough that chris didnt even leave a tip, which i didnt feel good about, but im trying to get over it
the game was really really fun! the stadium felt HUGE and we were lucky enough to sit in the 11th row! i realized that an NFL game is nothing like attending a BYU game. this struck me as the guy next to us had beer thrown at him before the game even started. but besides all the drunks and insane amounts of cleavage, i had so much fun with katie. we are always laughing and have a good time together. i will be so so so sad when their family moves next spring.

apparently there were supposed to be a few celebs at the game, but we only saw one. luckily it was one of chris' all time favorites! thats right, MR. TIGER WOODS was at the game!
he stood on the sidelines and we had a perfect view of him the whole time. it was pretty amazing, i have to admit.

we call this picture "crouching tiger (no) hidden dragon"

Ahh, yes, the cleavage. May have been the highlight of the evening for some (one) of us! Or was it the sweet smell of alcohol everywhere I turned? Either way it was totally AWESOME and well worth the complete exhaustion I felt all day from getting home at 3 am and the girls waking up before 7. Nice. What should be our next adventure?

Haha! I know! At first I thought, huh...this word has stud in it, cool! And then after I posted it I realized it was almost a bad word! Sorry! And yes, that lady definitely did not deserve a tip. Don't feel bad about that at all Lis!
