true friends stick by each other even when they might not necessarily agree with one another.
true friends put aside differences to celebrate each other.
true friends look past what some might consider bad decisions and lovingly accept one another with open arms.
true friends overcome rivalries to focus on what is really important -- each other...
...even when the rivalry happens to be the oldest rivalry in the NFL.
what the heck am i talking about?
look what we got in the mail from our friend (and major bears fan), gabe!
and are you wondering who that handsome model is?
it's choi boy, of course!
we were SO excited when we got this very sweet gift from our buddy, gabe. we were also stunned when we saw what it was, especially since it came from a very loyal bears fan and just before (and just in time for) a certain very big game. quite honestly, i don't know a whole lot about football, but after marrying into the packers fan base, it has been drilled into my head that packers + bears = no likey. BIG TIME.
in fact, this was choi boy's initial reaction:
"a packers hat?! from a bears fan?! what???? that's crazy!!!"
actually, he didn't really care. i totally had to bribe him with strawberries to pose for pics.
thank you so much for this awesome gift, joanna and gabe! it means so much more knowing you had to overcome this major rivalry to honor our team preference (ahem, the *right* preference). ;) can't wait til these two true friends can get together and play, all differences aside. :)
and, i'm going to say what y'all are thinking right now...doesn't choi boy totally look like a mini brawny man in that outfit?! love it! that and, yes, toddler toys have absolutely taken over our house!
and, because i'm the momma and i can use this blog to post embarrassing pictures of my guy while he still lacks enough words to protest, i'm going to share this gem of an outtake with you. you can see just how much CB loves strawberries:
GO, PACK, GO!!!
