Go Kings Go!!!! Oh wait you already did & won the Stanley Cup!!!!

Published June 23, 2014 by theycallmemrstibbs

Yes that right the Kings were victorious!!!
For all of you who don’t know what the Stanley Cup is read the following.
The Stanley Cup (French: La Coupe Stanley) is the championship trophy awarded annually to the National Hockey League (NHL) playoff winner after the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Finals. Originally commissioned in 1892 as the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, the trophy is named for Lord Stanley of Preston, then–Governor General of Canada, who awarded it to Canada’s top-ranking amateur ice hockey club, which the entire Stanley family supported, with the sons and daughters playing and promoting the game.

Oh my god neither Christopher or myself have ever been on the edges of our seats as during this.

Game one of the play offs in the west the Kings played the San Jose Sharks.
Unfortunately we lost the first 3 games needless to say I was upset then game 4 came about and WE WON!!!

Not just 1 game but the next 4 games which meant we were through to the next round against the Anaheim Ducks.
The first game came but ARRRGGGGHHH the channel on the cable had frozen and we couldn’t watch it. But yay!! We won!!!!! 3-2.
With this we won the first 2 games and this had the happy feeling was starting.
But then we lost the next 3 games, with that the panic set in.
The next game was full of worry if they were won we go out but if we win we’re still in with a chance. But woo hop we WON!!!
Then came the nail biter game 7. I was scared. But we WON 6-2.

The next round came again at the Chicago Blackhawks who were last year’s Stanley Cup champions, we so had to take them down.
Game 1 came and unfortunately we lost it 😦
But we won the next 3 games which brought the happy feeling back.
Unfortunately we then lost three next 2 games.
The 7th game came around, so it was fingers crossed and all of the other good luck mumbo jumbo. Then it all worked we WON!!!!! We were through to the Stanley Cup final. Oh my god that still gets me excited.
But through the 3 knockout rounds we always went to the 7th game, away from home and won. I think that says it all.

The Stanley Cup felt like it took so long to get here but no it wasn’t.

Anyway I’ll get back to the story.

The first game came and so the nerves started. However we WON!!
Game 2 & 3 we also won. We nearly had the cup.
But then game 4 happened and we lost 😦
Then game 5 came around I was shaking I was that nervous it got to the end of the 3rd period and it was all drawn 2-2. So the overtime (OT) starts. The first period of over time 20 minutes was nail biting enough that I thought if this carries on I’ll have bitten all the way to my elbows. After 20 minutes there was no more score than before.
2nd OT started my first thought was “wow you already played an hour how much longer can you go for”
The it came 15 minutes after the start of 2OT Alec Martinez scored we won the Stanley Cup!!!!
You can watch Martinez celebrate below its too cute.

The team were very happy to say the least.

This is the team on the ice with cup.

Then on Monday June 16 there was a parade of the Kings and the Cup towards the Staples centre.

The lovely Christopher modeling our kings T-shirt it may look as though it was very quiet there but this was like 3 hours before it started.

There was roughly 300,000 people in downtown LA just to see the parade.

Listening to Pasadena Make Music.

Published June 12, 2014 by theycallmemrstibbs

This is from an event called “Make Music Pasadena”. Which is all free music throughout the Pasadena area. We have been going to this since 2011. 

We decided this year due to Christopher’s tendonitis in his ankle, that we would limit the amount of stages we would go to. So we decided to start at Memorial Park.

We got the ARTS bus number 10 for free. I know it’s only 75¢ but still it’s great motivation to use it.
We thought we should take a picture together when we first got there.
image

When we got there a band called The National Parks were just about to start playing they are a country/rock band.
I really enjoyed watching them, and they kinda got me jigging about whilst being sat down.

image

image

They only played 30 minutes but everyone seemed to enjoy watching and listening to them.

Obviously with the heat we sat there drinking lots of water.

The next group to play was Caleigh Chapman another country/rock group from Bakersfield, California.
Again they were good and she had a great voice and her drummer had the best hair ever, and I complain my hair is big.

image

image

The next band I knew would be good due to the name Ted Z and The Wranglers. (I’m saying due to the name as Christopher calls me Ted).

They were amazing and had the most jiggley bass player/cowboy ever. They again played country/rock music.

image

image

As you can see they also had the best harmonica player.

After this group we decided it was home time as the hockey was on soon. But first we passed the main stage on Colorado and took a photo.
image

Then as waiting for the bus home we saw the “coolest” number plate/registration ever.
image

We don’t know if they were an MTV star but still it’s cool.

Free hair styling!!!

Published June 3, 2014 by theycallmemrstibbs

Yes that’s right ladies & possibly gents I got my big hair styled for free.

image

I know not so big here but this is the day after getting it styled.

OK so the story is……
I was walking down South Lake Avenue after going to the bank when a woman came up to me asking if my hair was naturally curly/wavy of course the answer was yes, as why would I have paid for my hair to be a mess?? She explained she was looking for a model with my type of hair that she could blow out, for those that don’t know that is its basically blow drying your hair straight, which of course I never do.
It was for a place called Drybar. Their website is http://www.thedrybar.com/
It’s really good the first thing they do is offer you a drink be it orange juice or maybe something harder like champagne or Mimosas. Good selection.
They rewashed my hair even though I had washed it that morning. They massaged my scalp and then it was down to business.
It was getting to be relaxing until I asked for some slight curls, as you know that you can never turn your back on your curls, with that it meant more pull which kinda hurt my scalp.
Obviously with it being free they kept trying to sell me lots of products which I couldn’t afford. Saying that I wouldn’t have paid $35 to have my hair styled.

The finished result is here….

And the back which I never see was like….

Over all it was all good.
