A (mostly) friendly competition between 2 avid birdwatchers that are also friends/co-workers. Who can observe more bird species in Idaho in 2009? Will they still be friends at year's end? ;-)

little explanation is needed....Jay lost, and here's the long-awaited result :)
thanks to our friend Mel Berg for making such a sweet t-shirt!!!!!

and now for:

The story of Jay and the pink shirt! (yes...Heidi's version :)

step one-Jay admires Mel's handiwork...His favorite part of this shirt is the stunning blue collar (it really brings out the color of his eyes!) and he also remarks that the sparkly hearts on it are just precious! ;P

(okay....so maybe Jay's exact words were more like "oh, crap!" but same difference)

(by the way, the front says "I wish I was as cool as Heidi" and the back reads "Jay 'hearts' Starlings"...all with glittery lettering and 'bedazzling')

step two-Jay puts on the shirt and begins sobbing ;)

Jay here: I seriously was on the verge of tears as I put the shirt on - mostly through laughter but the truth is that pink (especially with that freaking blue collar!) must have challenged my ego a little more than I expected ;-)

step three-Jay regrets unleashing the creative powers of Heidi and Mel

step four-Jay realizes that he really DOES look good in pink ;)



  1. With the added collar, Jay will always have a tag sticking out. Mwahaha.

    Jay, yer purty.

  2. LOVE this! Congrats Heidi! And Jay...The pink really does bring out your perty feminine side... not many men can say that! ;0)

    ~Heather (Heidi's aunt)

  3. Aww, c'mon Jay - real men wear pink!

  4. Only you two could pull this off. I really think that the both of you have way too much fun to call this work.
