"N": Noelle and Nick/"O" Orange and Blue/Pink Saturday

How I missed the "N" post for Alphabe Thursday is baffling! I have had a lot going on and I hate missing these fun meme's. Makes my mind sharp and I enjoy the company at Ms. Jenny's. So today I combined my "N" for Noelle and Nick, my oldest daughter and youngest son and added my favorite orange and blue team colors for the Denver Bronco football team! I teamed them both up with a pink post from our Vegas vacation to add to  Beverly and the Pinkies!
Noelle is posing with friend Jodi (bride) and Christina (right) at Jodi's wedding to Lennie! The bridesmaids are pretty in pink!
Nick Christmas 2013 visiting phamily.
Noelle and I look a little sleepy on Christmas 1977.
Nick with eyes closed on Mother's Day 2013 with Jeremy and I.
Vegas fun with Hannah and her brothers, Nick (who turned 21) and Jeremy.
Noelle and Hannah back in Colorado after fun in the sun in sunny Las Vegas.

I thought Noelle and Nick would be a perfect "N" post for Ms. Jenny's Alphabe Thursday class!
When Peyton Manning fired off an "F" bomb at a Houston Texan player who knocked his team mate Wes Welker out of the game, I was proud of Manning! He was fined for the first time in his career for "unsportsman like conduct"! He said that was the best $8,200 he spent! He was, after all, just protecting his team mate. I am amazed in the NFL how many "dirty"  hits are ignored.  Manning is a classy guy, and he tapped the other player on the shoulder and turned away from the camera when he gave the guy a piece of his mind! It was the Texan's player who blasted the words Manning said all over the morning news! Because Peyton has small children, he is very cautious on the field, trying to be a good role model. Then there are days, you just have to say what is on your mind! I am proud of him wearing orange and blue and I wish him a successful year in 2014!
As a Colorado native, I love this bumper sticker. We have had such a large influx of people moving here because of this legalized marijuana. That and the liberal politicians are my least favorite things about the state that I love.
I love the Bronco's logo. My dad was a life long fan and I am too! We watch NFL football every weekend and my phamily has fun! My hubby and I have nicknames for other team players and we really enjoy being silly. I am proud of the orange and blue and will always wear it proudly.
While in Las Vegas we visited Pink's! It is the Vegas version of the famed Hollywood establishment founded in 1939. Although not a budget friendly meal my hubby and I shared an order of fries with their tasty chili dogs. While there we met a young man, named Jeff, who recently came back to his native Las Vegas from the U.S. Navy. It was nice chatting with him while we ate our dinner and I snapped a few "pink" shots from Pink's Las Vegas diner:
The door is bordered in pink and it was a fun visit.
The Las Vegas dry heat is something else and even the cooling fans are touched with pink!
We shared a cold soda but you can have a variety of beverages while visiting Pink's.

I hope you will visit Beverly and thank her for her continued support of Pink Saturday and visit some Pinkies today!

What a fun post. Loved the pictures of your family. Pink's will be on my list if I get back to Las Vegas. I'm going to order a cherry daiquiri. Have a great weekend!

Ann really enjoyed my journey with you thorough your lens. You make everything fun no matter where you are. Stay safe. Your broncs sure made hash of our Cowboys.

What nice family pictures ! Mr. G has his eyes mostly closed on pictures I don't know why, lol !

Judie said...

I just LOVE looking at family pictures, Anne!!

I agree with you about Payton. He's just such a class act.

I'm so glad you had fun in Vegas and it's not ALL about the gambling and price gauging for concerts.

I've always enjoyed Peyton Manning and think his whole family is a class-act. If he uttered the 'f' word, I'm pretty sure that other guy deserved it -- and more!

Leovi said...

Yes, I also love the Bronco's logo! With great force and motion!

Your photos are wonderful. I love the one of you and your daughter from 1977. I also love your "welcome to Colorado" sign. My sentiments exactly!!

You have a fabulous day, hugs, Edna B.

Loved your long and lovely combo post. Especially enjoyed the pics of your phamily and the fun stuff about Colorado. 😊

I enjoyed reading of your family, Anne. I had to decide which was the cuter, Noelle with you in '77 or her now in a '14 selfie. Definitely the older picture because I am not a selfie fan.

Does a tree fall in the forest when no one can see it or hear it? Just because the mikes didn't pick Manning's bad word up doesn't mean he said it.
Really though, I think the whole team was playing meaner as time went on because the "champs' weren't supposed to be losing to our Texans. Plus they had gotten tired of each other after a whole week of practicing together. The honeymoon was over.
