The Captains Chalkboard Says It All

Inspiration comes from the strangest places.  I was debating what I wanted to write about today while I was going through my morning routine when it came to me suddenly.  I was staring at the chalkboard in my mudroom and I thought it would be a great topic for a #Friday5 so I took this picture that I’m going to tell you all about.

Top 5 Chalkboard Stories For August


1.  95 Days Till Kauai

Megan and I write little notes and jokes to each other frequently on this chalkboard.  At the beginning of the month I decided to start a countdown clock for our trip to Hawaii.  November is just around the corner!


2.  Shark Week

Meg decided that Shark Week was more important than a Hawaii countdown, so she used her rudimentary drawing skills to make a shark bust through the count while chasing a seal.  At least the joke was quality…


3.  Slurpee Sunglasses

I was away this year for 7-11 day, so believe me when I say that I went all out to celebrate.  While in line for my free Slurpee I spotted a rack of Slurpee brand sunglasses.  $5 was a steal for these stylin shades.


4.  Modern Rock 2013

I’ve been busy this summer downloading new music and rocking out in my car.  Now is the time of year when I can really get started on narrowing down the tracks for my Modern Rock playlists.  I’ve got two full discs of great tunes for Modern Rock 2013, with more sure to come.


5.  Luxury Suite Tickets

Megan scored another free pair of tickets for a Luxury Suite at Busch Stadium.  Jackpot!  Last year she took me to a game in a Suite that was pretty epic, and this year she’s trying to outdo herself.  Tomorrow nite we’ll be cheering on rookie sensation Michael Wacha as he pitches against the hapless Cubs.  My wife is the best!
