1. The best surprise ever would be, honestly any positive surprise would be good, but I'd love to go to Disney.

2. Seeing Cock Sparrer in a small club in Las Vegas is my most favorite memory .

3. The hardest, but most worthwhile thing I've ever done was hmmm, I haven't done too many important things in my life just yet.

4. The best part of my day is right when I get home from work and I can just plop down and give a sign of relief.

5. Something I like that most people don't is yellow and orange candies, I HATE RED CANDY.
6. Something I am willing to fight for is anything important to me.

7. Something you might not know about me is I'm not allergic to shellfish.

Weekend catch up and Mad men thoughts

Well Friday night the rain held out and my game happened. We won, but sadly I blew out my knees in the 3rd inning. I sat for the rest of the game, but after naproxen and rest I am back to life somehow. After the game we headed to the Cathay Center to hang. I forgot how tired I get on Friday nights and once 11 hit I was really feeling it. I got home a little before 12 and was so happy to go to sleep.

Saturday I was up pretty early and I headed to Lynn to hang with Caitlin, Dave and the beb. We had a pretty great day and I rediscovered Moon Shoes at the Salvation Army near their house. Ellie is the happiest and cutest baby ever, I love hanging out with her. They needed to go food shopping so I tagged along and pushed the cart. The Whole Foods near them has the most samples ever! I love going there with them, because I end up eating so much.
We headed back to their place and waited for Chris to come over. We had a couple of failed attempts at going to the beach, but we ending up finding a cool place to hang out and they took lots of cute pictures of and with Ellie. I even got behind the camera for a bit to snap some cute family photos for them. If Caitlin posts any I'll link you over to there so you can see them.
It was getting late to we headed back to Lynn and ate and hung out until bed time. It ending up being a sleep over.

Sunday we hung out for a bit and then we headed to SOWA to visit Roxy's Grilled Cheese. It was really warm out so SOWA was super busy and packed. We walked around and said hi to Sam at the truck and we also saw Zac. I ended up getting a piggy bank really cheap at the vintage market indoors there.
We headed back to the truck to get our lunch and it was delish as usual. Getting to see Mike and James was nice too!
I headed home after eating and then I gathered my Mothers Day items. My Mom wanted a cupcake and scratch tickets. I also surprised her with a Roxy's shirt, she was so excited. She also won a few bucks on the tickets I got her so it was a win win!
Well then it turned into night time and I watched my shows, Army Wives and Mad men. I don't really talk about Army Wives on here, because I know no one really cares. It was a good episode though and probably one of my favorites so far this season. I've been watching it since the beginning so I'm committed.

Mad Men thoughts:
It seems that with Megan leaving the company that Don finally steps up to get work done. Even though you can tell he is threatened by Ginsbergs ideas he still knows they are good. Hopefully he will step back up to be great at work like he used to.
Leaving Ginsbergs idea in the cab forced Don to sell that idea and make him feel better.
I didn't have too much thoughts on Megan and her friend running lines. Megan has to realize that since she married into money that her struggling friends would think of her differently.
I hate Jane and I always have. I'm always just so annoyed with her gold digging ways, I don't care if her and Roger actually liked eachother at one point. WAH the rich apartment I'm in reminds me of you so buy me a new one. WAH the new apartment you just got me now reminds me of you wah wah wah. Cry me a river spoiled brat.
I'm surprised that Peggy reacted the way she did when she found out Roger wanted Ginsberg to work on the wine campain. She should know more than anyone that it is every man for themself and she has fought hard enough.
If Betty HAS to be in the show I'm glad that the reason for being fat is because she hates Don. When she ran up to get the kids and seeing Megan change, she was so jealous of her being thin and pretty. The redi whip scene was so good and funny, I love how much of a failure that she is, I really dislike her. I was really intrigued to see that weight watchers meetings have been around that long and that she was getting this BS motivation yapping from it.
The family tree thing was so great and horrible at the same time. To see Betty poisioning Sally and then Sally becoming just like her Mother, a rotten bitch out to hurt Don and Megan. Megan dealt with the situation the best she could I believe, but Don handled it great. Then Sally throwing it back in Betty's face as if it was no big deal at all was just so awesome. Betty lying to her husband and family at the table during Thanksgiving and then trying to savor that one forkful of stuffing.
SO good

Fill in the blank Friday/TGIFFFFFFFF

1. On a scale from 1-10 the frequency with which I get sick is, probably 7. I seem to always be sick or there is some issue going on with my fibro or asthma/allergies.

2. The last time I felt sick was last weekend. I was really dehydrated and was getting really dizzy and sick. Pedialyte to the rescue!

3. The worst part about being sick is not being able to function like a human. Doing the smallest things is always a big issue and it is so draining.

4. When I am sick I like to be taken care of by hiding in bed watching TV. I usually post up with a box of tissues and water and hope for the best.

5. Something I do to keep myself healthy is cross my fingers and hope for the best.

6. A secret remedy that I use when I'm sick is to I don't have many secrets other than to drink a lot of water and try to get a good nights sleep.

7. One thing that always makes me feel better when I'm sick is super cold water and maybe jello.

I stole this from the little things we do

I'm so glad its Friday! I feel like its been Tuesday all week. Tonight I have a softball game, so hopefully it doesn't get rained out like Wednesdays game did. With the horrible weather this week I haven't done too much of anything. Mainly just staying in at night and being a couch potato. I did go to the gym for the first time since I was in the hospital. I thought I was going to pass out, but I lasted an hour so that was good.

Blueberry cheesecake muffins

I've been eyeing this recipe on Peas and Thank You for a long time now and after I stopped at the bank today I decided to pick up some stuff to make them.

Here is what you need:

1 c. whole wheat pastry flour (I used regular whole wheat flour)
1/2 c. unbleached organic flour (I used regular flour)
1/2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. organic sugar ( I used regular sugar)
1/2 c. applesauce
1/2 c. non-dairy or organic milk ( I used rice milk)
1/2 t. almond extract ( I did not use this at all, because I have a nut allergy)
1 c. blueberries ( I used frozen)
1/2 c. non-dairy (such as Tofutti) or organic cream cheese ( I used light cream cheese from stop and shop)
1/2 c. organic powdered sugar ( I used regular powdered sugar)
1/2 t. vanilla

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine flours, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.
In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine sugar, applesauce, milk and almond extract.
Add milk/sugar mixture to flours and stir gently to combine.

You can see I used my trusty piggy spoon for all of the mixing

-Fold in blueberries. (Because I used frozen it turned my batter a purple color)

-Set batter aside temporarily and prepare “cheese”cake filling by beating together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Do not overbeat.
(I only had to beat it for like 30 seconds using a old hand mixer)

-Line a muffin tin with papers or spray with cooking spray.
Fill each cup 1/3 of the way full with blueberry batter.
Top each muffin with a spoonful of “cheese”cake filling
and then top with an additional scoop of blueberry batter.
Spread the batter out with a small spoon or your finger so that “cheese”cake filling is covered.
Bake muffins for 23-25 minutes until they are golden and set.

Ta Da

Halfway through the week

Well its only Wednesday, this week is just creeping by. Its been really rainy here and I'm supposed to have a softball game tonight. As of right now it hasn't been cancelled, but who knows what will happen between now and 8. Today, Friday and Monday I have games and they are all at the field that I dislike, so hopefully I can play well.
Cock Sparrer is in 10 days and I'm really excited about that! And then the first weekend in June I'll be in Austin. THANK GOD IT IS ALMOST HERE. I've been so antsy waiting for May/June to come.

Here is a picture of a macaroni and cheese lunch I had with Mike.

Here is a picture of me with baby Ellie. I kind of hate my smile, but shes just so cute so I like the picture. I love baby Ellie, today I saw a picture of her a little Underdog shirt and I almost died.

First game of the year

Well on Monday I had my first game and it was super chilly out. I forgot how cold it was in April, but all I needed was pants and a sweatshirt and I was all set.
We ending up winning 7-1 and it was so awesome once we hit our stride in the 3rd and 4th inning. I was the lead off batter and I was 4 for 5! My first hit was a double and then I hit singles for the rest of the game. I was playing second and didn't make any errors so that was good, I got a lot of action over there.
We are supposed to have games this Wednesday and Friday so hopefully they don't get rained out, I hate making up games.
Here are a few pictures of the game that Rick took.

Oh and my computer is finally back and working. My battery was so dead that it expanded so my mouse wouldn't work. At least it was a fairly easy fix, just on the pricey side. At least now that its working I can do my tee till death posting again and I can read all of the celebrity gossip that my heart desires.
