Calling all Memories...

So here is a fun new blogging game:

1. Leave one memory that you and I (or Blaine) had together as a comment on my blog. It doesn't matter if you know us/me/him a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Cue the Barbara Streisand music..."Memories..."

I have really fun memories of us at bunko just laughing our butts off! I think one funny night was talking about how you thought you were blonde! LOL!!! I also enjoyed Janes where you rocked out on guitar hero! I also remember you being a huge influence for us on adopting and you standing up one Sunday to invite people to that adoption seminar thing while we happened to be fasting about adoption and being so suportive with us and such a huge help... we will never be able to thank you enough for all of your help!

Hmmmmmmmmmm mission impossible!

I remember meeting you in the MSW program and being so relieved that there was going to be at least one person I could get along with!! I remember the moment it went off in my head "Blaine and Tirsa would be perfect for eachother!". I was so shocked I hadn't thought of it earlier (sorry). I remember going to California with Blaine...and he was so giddy about you. I remember when the two of you came back to Jon and Blaine's gross apartment and were engaged!!

Jami said...

ps...I also remember that first blind date for the two of you. I had code words set up with both of you if you didn't want to go bowling after dinner. I was so relieved that neither of you used the code words!!

I don't have this on my blog but wanted to leave a memory anyway. I remember playing sardines at the park by your house. I also remember going to the chevy chase show with you! Gee I wonder why that flopped?! But my craziest memory is when I hit your car on the way to HS from seminary!!! I had some crazy boys being hyper in my car and I was totally distracted and I felt sooooo horrible, and you were so sweet! Luckily there was no damage!

Steve and Kelli Fam said...

I remember the first time I met you when we all went to Cafe Rio in SLC with Blaine and Steve and I thought you were really cool and Steve and I were hoping you guys would end up together (because we weren't crazy about the girls he had dated in Cali) and we were so exited about everything and It was somebody's birthday but I can't remember whose. There are lots of great, fun, funny, crazy memories, but that was just the first memory.

I have great memories of Tirsa and I singing Indigo girls songs and playing cards that summer we were roommates! We also watched fireworks with some weird guys for the fourth of July at BYU.

Heather said...

This is way too fun! Can we just say Nutella and pretzels or pita bread. I think we ate enough of that in Galilee to last a life time. I also had so much fun when we drove up to our Jerusalem reunion together! Really we'll just say I can't help but smile when I think of you!

Moose and Family said...

(Moose here....) I remember going to Ventura Stake dances and talking with Blaine about our Volkswagen Bugs and what modifications we had made or were going to make. Those were the days... cruisin' in our old Vee-Dubs.

Frosting Fiend said...

On Valentine's Day a few years back we (well, you) made cupcakes and we took them to our husbands' work and Chandler and Bella both had "heartbreaker" shirts on.

Blaine - I remember going on a double date with Ben and my sister Julie to Aroyyo Verde park for a picnic. Ben and Blaine baked a cake. It was a yellow cake with chocolate frosting and sad to say it tasted awful! But I appreciated the effort. Then we went ice blocking!

Tirsa - I just remember being in young women's with you in the Camarillo 3rd ward. I always looked up to!

The Mohrs said...

I don't have this on my blog either yet (I'm quite behind). I could not pass up the opportunity for this!!!! I remember at the good old PHS meeting at our locker for lunch. You told me you wanted to go home and I asked why you said you had walked all the way down main hall and outside with the pair of dress shorts you were wearing stuck up your poor bum!!! Yes Tirsa's BEAR bum cheek was hanging out!!! The first thing I remember thinking was I'm so glad that was not me. I'm such a good friend.
Then the time at the basketball game when my shirt flew open...EFY...what were those 2 boys names that we met before????? Gabe's volkswagon bus....Lallopalooza...Hogi Yogi (I can't look at one without thinking of you) the old red car....remember the guy at the beach when I came to California and we thought he was going to steal our stuff!!! You always getting mad because I was the worst letter writer and never wrote. I remember you trying to bribe me with whenever I wrote you would send me a piece to a puzzle to put together. Ahhh I'm getting teary. You are amazing!!! I LOVE YA!!!

Wade & Kati Allen said...

I remember the first time Wade and I met you. Blaine brought you to Lizzie's blessing. And afterwards you held her and wouldn't give her up for anything! After you two left we all totally talked about how we thought you guys made a great couple!!!!

I would say that one of my first memories of you was when I was doing Jamey's surprise party a fews back and I invited you and Blaine, not knowing you too well, but knowing that I wanted to know you guys better. It was so fun that you guys came with that beautiful new baby girl and all that red hair. Well and then there are our hours of hair and talking- love it!!

I have too many memories, but I think the earliest ones are how we were somehow always "followed" by a kidnapper van EVERY Saturday morning on our way home from the dairy. No wonder our parents never seemed too concerned! And of course, all the throw up stories when we were young. I also totally laugh about your grandpa directing us on our way to Utah when I drove up with you. He was so cute!

4 words... "IS MY FACE OK?!?!?" Bulgaria Bus Wreck! Crazy Greek semi truck driver and our "sex machine" t-shirted translator dude. Greek islands, the flasher in Athens, and pre-mish days at BYU. Walking by the MTC wondering, "Will we know what it's like to be in there?" Am so glad we both chose to serve :) It has enriched my life so much to know you, my friend. -KH

Blaine and Tirsa said...

I LOVED reading all of the memories!!! Thanks for sharing everyone. We've had some GOOD TIMES, huh! I'll be on your blog soon.

I remember meeting you for the first time at an adoption fireside and Jeff knew you from the mission, but you didn't remember him. Ha, ha.

Can I just say strange rumblings followed by a foul odor coming from the FEMALE side of the classroom in the MTC!!! =)
