First Game of the Season!!


Last Thursday, "He who will be the Next Joe Mauer" (aka "The Pal") (oh, and sorry Joe [you know, in case Joe reads my blog]...better watch out for this kid...he'll be vying for your position in about 5 years...better watch yer back, Joe.) had his first baseball game of the season...let's just say that our household has been getting very anxious for the start of baseball season!


Baseball season is the best. Warm weather, outside games, not stuck in a stuffy, sweaty, musty gymnasium with my 4 rambunctious, grimy, restless, hungry kids...yeah, baseball rocks.

Only thing was, I had to work Thursday evening for a bit...so I only got to watch about an hour of the Pal's game. ("Watch" being used very loosely here, as I was back and forth between the playground about 80 gazillion times...)


I got a call at work that night (and this fact totally makes me smile...that my boy calls me to tell me something important!)...it went something like this:


"Hey mom."

"Hey hon! How are you? How was your game? How was the weather? What did you have for supper? When did your game end? Do you miss me? What are the kids doing? What is Mr. Wonderful doing? (Only I didn't really call him that, you know, in case you were wondering...)"

"Mom. In the 4th inning of the second game? Yeah, I hit one off the base of the fence!"


"OHMIGOSH!!!!! WHAT THE HECK?! THAT'S AWESOME!! YOU'VE GOTTA DO THAT NEXT TIME I'M THERE! OHMIGOSH!"

"Yeah, we all totally thought it was gone. Then we realized it wasn't and ran like crazy."

"OHMIGOSH!! YOU NEVER DO THAT WHEN I'M THERE! I THINK I'M BAD LUCK! YOU NEED TO DO THAT NEXT TIME I'M THERE!!!!!!!!!!"

"Okay. Tuesday."

And that was the end of that conversation. Better get my camera all charged up for tomorrow's game! (I hope I don't jinx him...)

(PS...didja know it's my blogoversary?!)

  1. I think that watching my boys play sports is my most favorite thing to do ever! Even if most of soccer season is in the rain :)

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
