Happy Belated 8th Birthday HB & HB!

19 Jan

Negligent mother that I am, I once again missed HB & HB’s official birthday 3 days ago. Oy. But eight years! EIGHT YEARS! Hard to believe, isn’t it? I am so grateful. I haven’t always had the time to post, but I am so happy to keep this place alive on even a small level. Thank you for all the love, laughter and Los Blancos-related tomfoolery. (Scope out the teeny tiny headband on the dinosaur. Tailor made for us!)

You all rock!

Happy 7th Birthday HB & HB!

16 Jan

Holy hell! How can it be 7 years already?! I can’t believe that this fun little idea that Maisougio and I had 7 years ago is still chugging along. Granted, life and work have increasingly gotten in the way of posting, much to my sadness, but I still try to get at least one thing on the blog a day. As always, I hope this coming year I will have more time to write. Thank you to everyone who has stuck by HB & HB. You guys are the best!¬† Hala Madrid!

Happy 6th Birthday HB & HB!

cowgirlhorse-6th-birthday-girl-fold-out-9023365-0-1413271962000I chose a cowgirl card for our birthday because lord knows, we sure do love a Pony here! ūüėČ

Believe it or not, we’re officially 6 today! How times does fly! ¬†Special thanks to the watishista correspondents, especially mygypsyspirit and hopechaser, without whom this blog would have gone under long ago as my real life has taken a massive chunk out of my blog time.

Thank you so much to all of you for being so wonderful and engaged; for indulging us in our silliness and love of all things footy but especially our Blanco boys. I have met friends of a lifetime through this place, learned so much, laughed and cried and shared so many experiences. I love how sport can make the world smaller in the best of ways. This crazy love that we share bonds us and overrides so many other differences. Long may the fun continue.


Happy (MUCH) Belated 5th Birthday HB & HB!

5 Feb

5Ever the neglectful parent, I just realized (looking at Cristiano’s birthday post) that I once again forgot to post about the blog’s birthday! (To be fair, I was gearing up for major surgery on our birthday this year and couldn’t really focus on anything else.) Continue reading

Happy 4th Birthday HB & HB!

How nice of El Pirata to send us a card!

How nice of El Pirata to send us a card!

Our first post was on 12/31/10 but we officially launched this blog on 1/16/11 so that makes us 4 years old today.¬†¬†Holy crap! Where did the time go?! We’re almost 6,000 posts into this adventure with no signs of stopping. Hard to believe. Thank you so much to our¬†watishista correspondents, the now retired Maisougio and all of you for making this possible. ¬†It could not be done without you and I mean that sincerely. ¬†2014 was a tough year ’round these parts but I’m feeling very optimistic for 2015. Lots of good footy action to come and the Tishies will soon be upon us!

Thank you, a million times, thank you. You’re the best.



Happy Belated 3rd Birthday HB & HB!

23 Jan

Blog-3rd-birthdayI can’t believe it! I did it again! I forgot our birthday (on January 16) in the midst of work and illness. I need to write it in my calendar like I do with all the squad birthdays. You can read about our history here (and see a Pipita’s rump slideshow – bonus!) It’s been a challenging year both for the team and for us (in several ways) but I’m feeling confident for the future. I’m excited to see where this season goes and I’m so excited for the World Cup! Thank you to my bloggy other half Maisougio for her awesomeness and all of you for sticking with us. You make me smile every day.

Fun To Be One!

16 Jan

Today is HB & HB’s official first birthday! As we mentioned recently,¬† made our first post on 12/31/10 but we didn’t make the blog public until 1/16/11 due to being scared out of our wits. Lucky for us you didn’t throw rotten tomatoes so we stuck around. It’s been a wonderful ride and I hope this will be the first of many birthdays we’ll all celebrate together. Maisougio and I didn’t expect our baby to be so well received and to grow so fast. We are incredibly thankful for the fun, amazing insights and sense of community all of you bring here each day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. WATISHISTAS RULE!

Love, Lozil xoxo
