Dude Perfect

So I figured that since I am the girlfriend of one of the Dude Perfect members (the one with the beard)- it was about time that I blogged about these 6 amazing guys.

Unless you have been living in a hole for the past year- you have most likely seen a Dude Perfect video on your TV or computer screen. They are a group of guys from Texas A&M who have turned a fun past time into something that has taken the YouTube world by storm.

Here are some things DP have been a part of recently:

-They have made appearances on the CBS Early Morning Show, Regis and Kelly, Good Morning America and have even made the homepage of Yahoo and MSN.
-They teamed up with Tyreke Evans for his recent Rookie of the Year Campaign and had the opportunity to walk the red carpet and attend the ESPY’s Award Show.
-They even had the chance to work with GMC on their Heavy Duty Pick-Up Games Campaign and shoot a series of commercials for them that then aired during the NBA Finals.

Just when you think these guys have done it all- they go bigger than before. Recently, they have put out 2 new exciting basketball shots that will literally blow your mind. So check them out here and here

One thing that sets these 6 guys apart is not only there strange ability to chunk a basketball into a net but, most importantly, the Faith and relationship with Jesus Christ that each of them hold. I have been around these guys a lot in the past year and the one thing that stands true is that each of them “talks the talk- and walks the walk”.  I believe this is a huge reason why God has continued to bless their ministry and build up the DP brand.

These guys have some incredible things coming up in the next couple of months and to be one of the first to hear about it follow them on twitter here. Trust me- you don’t want to miss out.

Also- Check out the official Dude Perfect website here to watch all the videos and learn about each member of the group! Soon they will have the official DP merchandise up and running on the site so you can purchase your own pink hat like the one my brother is sporting here….

Call me a proud girlfriend, call me a groupie, call me what you want. I have no shame. :)

Happy Columbus Day!

"1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue..." 

Today is the day that Christopher Columbus supposedly discovered America and also discovered that the world wasn't indeed flat. I don't think many people blog about this particular day or really even care about it - but in honor of forgotten Columbus Day- I have decided to give you a list of things I have "discovered" about myself over the years:

- I discovered that my middle name had an "E" on the end of it when I got my drivers permit. I went from Bethany Lynn Briscoe to Bethany Lynne Briscoe in a matter of seconds. It blew my mind. 
- I discovered at a shady carnival in College Station that I am now too old to ride the Starship 3000 without feeling like I am going to toss my cookies for the next 2 hours of my life.
- I discovered that the saying "when you know- you just know" is actually a valid and very true statement.
- Over the past year I have discovered that I cant lay on my stomach without getting up and feeling like I have a steel rod for a spine. Getting older: check.
- I discovered the moment I came home from college that my dog had forgotten who I am and continues to forget every morning while she barks at me like a bird.
- I discovered a couple days ago that those cameras on top of intersection lights really do work. 
- I discovered that I cant put my mascara on in the same mirror as I do the rest of my makeup. Its true people...I cant make this stuff up. 
- I discovered that its possible to make it through a boot camp without wanting to puke, faint or die. In that order. 
- I discovered that your ears dont burn when people talk about you. 
- I discovered that SPCA commercials make me bawl like a baby....every....freaking....time. 

So there ya go. Just some small discoveries I have made that might spark your interest. Enjoy your Columbus Day and go discover something. :)

October chill brings a good time feel...

"Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn."
Elizabeth Lawrence

Its OCTOBER! Well its been October for four days but I'm still excited about it. October is my all time favorite month for a couple simple reasons:

-Scarves! Finally, I can wear my scarves and not get funny looks from people around me. I attempted the "summer scarf" a couple of times but quickly realized that was a mistake in 105 degree Texas heat. Scarves will never go out of style. They are timeless so invest in as many as you want.

-Boots! Alright ladies, you can NOW bust out the cute leather boots without looking like an idiot. One of my biggest pet peeves are people who wear the boot to early. When the weather finally gets down to a chilly 40 degrees -it is only then that you you may let the thought of wearing those new Steve Madden boots enter into your head.

-The new flavors of coffee! If your anything like me- your mornings depend on the legal drug of caffeine. October is when Starbucks finally dives deep into there "seasonal" only lattes. My all time favorite is the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Don't let the orange coloring throw you for a loop either. This drink will literally change your life.

-Pumpkins galore!! Weather it be the front of your home, or the shelf by your desk; having pumpkins around during this time always seems to warm up any area! If you are feeling crafty and want to put a personal touch to your pumpkins- try taking the time to carve one of your own. There are so many different patterns online to choose from which makes things little easier for the non artistic person. Its messy and can sometimes be hard work but in the end its always worth it.

-Pale skin is in! This is a personal favorite of mine :) If you are still baking your skin in a tanning bed its time to cancel or put your Palm Beach membership on freeze. Nobody will buy the excuse that you "went somewhere warm and got some sun" come Christmas time unless you insist on looking like a cast member from Jersey Shore.

-Fall colors are the best colors! Red, oranges, deep greens, and browns all look good on a brunette which works out perfectly for me. (Despite those of you who think I have red hair. Y'all are just simply foolish. ) Sorry to all my beautiful blonde's- your summer colors have come and gone.

So go outside today in your boots and scarf and enjoy God's creation. He's given it to us for a reason! :)
