Our Weekend at The Player's Championship

Image
This past weekend was The Player's Championship at TPC Sawgrass! We were very fortunate to get tickets with Jared's status on the Web.Com Tour this year. It also included tickets for family and friends as well. On Friday morning, before I had to go to work, we followed our friend, Steve Wheatcroft. His wife, Sarah, had some awesome T-shirts made that said "Wheat Watchers" on the front and "#TeamWheatie" on the back. It was fun to support our friend in this really big tournament! He made the cut and we followed his full rounds on Saturday and Sunday! It was a blast!  
On Sunday morning, we were asked to take part in the Chapel Service. FCA Golf Jacksonville organized everything and they did a phenomenal job. We actually spoke on the same stage that they crowned the 2016 Players Champion, Jason Day! 

We talked about our marriage and how keeping Christ at the center of it has been the best thing we could do. Here's a link to the full video if you're i…

HomePlate Peanut Butter

Image
HomePlate Peanut Butter sent us some of their different flavors to try in exchange for an honest review.  We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own.
Here's a little info about the company from their website: HomePlate Peanut Butter was created by a group of former professional baseball players who grew up playing baseball every day and eating a ton of peanut butter. During those long days in the minor leagues, they counted on the delicious spread. A sandwich at daybreak and another one at day’s end. Loaded up on some saltines before a workout. A tasty spoonful for a boost between innings. They grew to love peanut butter as an inexpensive and accessible way to stay fueled and fit. Unfortunately, their options were limited to big sugary brands and oily, chemical-laden concoctions. They didn’t want to stir their peanut butter. And they wanted peanut butter that was delicious, but fit their training regimens. After they retired from the game and …

Capello's

Capello's sent us pizza, pasta, and cookie dough to try in exchange for an honest review.  We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. Here's a little info about Capello's from their website: Cappello’s is a Colorado-based gourmet food company specializing in high-end gluten free, grain free products. Founded in 2011 by friends Stacey Marcellus and Benjamin Frohlichstein, the inspiration for Cappello’s was born out of Stacey and Ben’s desire to create a totally unique food company, to be the best at what they do, and to legitimize their penchant for asking strangers to taste their pasta. Cappello’s mission is simple: provide fresh, uniquely delicious options for gourmet food-lovers, healthy eaters and people with dietary restrictions. When Stacey is not making pasta, she can be found engaging in non-pasta activities like painting, snowboarding, fermenting food and ukulele-ing. Benjamin maintains a respectable ability to listen to musi…

One Degree Organics

One Degree Organic Foods sent us some cereal and flour to try in exchange for a review.  We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 
Here's some info about the company from their website:
“To be simple is to be great,” a famous American essayist once wrote. He might easily have been describing the philosophy behind One Degree organic foods. We start with simple ingredients from family farmers who are devoted to the earth, the integrity of their crop, and your health. True sources, truly veganic. When you add sustainability, transparency and consumer-empowering technology, what you get is an incredibly honest meal. And, if you can remember back to how good food once tasted before it became genetically modified, globally transported, showered in chemicals and hormones, processed, reprocessed and loudly marketed, you’ll also rediscover some wonderful memories and long-lost flavors in every slice and spoonful. We start with simple ingredients fr…

Missing a Monday Qualifier by ONE is Like...

Golf is hard. It is a sport that is full of ups and downs. Today, I want to spill my heart out and let you inside a golf wife's brain. These past two weeks, Jared has tried to Monday Qualify for a Web.com Event and a PGA event. For the Web.Com event, he shot 5 under and went into a playoff with 2 other guys to compete for 1 spot. Jared's par putt lipped out (one of the most annoying things that happens) and he lost the playoff.  


The following week, he shot 6 under at the PGA event. He was tied for 3rd and they only took 4 players total, so he waited ALL DAY LONG for the rest of the groups to finish because he had a morning tee time. After waiting 7 hours to see if a playoff would happen, he got knocked out of the running because someone shot 8 under. 
I know that trying to explain what this feels like to someone who doesn't know about golf is close to impossible, so I wanted to share some other life scenarios that would come close to comparing.
