Heading to Hotlanta

Tomorrow's the day. It's the day I attend my annual Braves game. I guess I've gone 5 out of the last 6 years. There's just something about Summertime that makes me want to sit outside and watch some ball. This time I'll be heading to Atlanta with a couple of guy friends (my girl friends all think baseball is boring.) We're going to do a little shopping, eat some yummy food (Cheesecake Factory or California Pizza Kitchen), and watch some baseball. It will be a fun filled day for sure. I'm not sure it will produce as many funny stories as our car-trip to the beach, but I'm sure there will be several fun stories to tell.

Recent happenings:

1) Dad turned the big 59 last weekend. That means next year he hits the big 60 followed by me hitting the big 30. I'm ok with that. My friend asked me recently how old I think is too old to have children. I told her 29. ;-) However, my dad is the coolest. I can't thank him enough for all he does for me and my sister. I'm the luckiest girl in the world Thanks, Dad. I love you!

2) I bought a Nintendo Wii. Normally I do not get into video games, but the guys at work talk about how much fun this is so I now own one. It is a great group activity and actually gets you up and moving so I consider it cardio. Win-win for sure! Uncle J also bought one for the pre-teens at church. I'm going back to the 5th grade so I can hang out with them!

3) Transformers rocks. If you haven't seen it, you need to. This is a movie theater movie for sure. I'm talking full price movie theater movie. You need to see it in all of its high-def, surround sound wonder.

4) I got to hang out with some of my friends this week who work in our college department. Rebecca, Meggan, and O'B...thanks for letting me hang with you!

5) I am still avoiding the Harry Potter madness. Not a movie seen nor a book read. And I plan on continuing this trend. Sorry AB, I'm not coming over to the dark side.

6) Work is still work. I still have a job which is good. I appreciate Dilbert more than I ever have in my life at this point though. I'm convinced that Scott Adams has a mole in every large corporation in America though.

Well, I guess that's enough. Maybe if I blogged more often then I wouldn't have such long posts.

We love our Wii!! I'm a superstar at bowling! lol!! And about all the Harry Potter hoopla...I'm with ya on that one. I've not read a book not seen a movie and the same is true for my kids. I loved your comment about the "dark side"...I think I'm going to start using that with my friends who are HP fans! lol!!

Have fun on your trip...sounds like a ton of fun! I've never been to a Braves game but Pete has been to several...his brother lives in Atlanta.
