Take me out to the ballgame



Beautiful sunny Winnipeg!!!

I had a blast this weekend and is settling in to my new rig-wife lifestyle. Friday after work I rushed home and met up with Chad who was nice enough to come over and cut my grass for me. I made a kick ass dinner (Jerk Chicken, Baked Potatoes and Salsa Supreme Salad) ran to Richer and picked up some beer and relaxed and had a few bevies. Chad was looking into getting his own house and had found a perfect one just 12 minutes away from us. We took a ride out to check it out and also drove around Ste. Genevieve and our neighborhood and then came home when it got dark. Chad had some leftover fireworks from the parties the weekends before...... so we lit those up and teased the neighbors.... they were having a slightly bigger party across the field. Dory ran away (I'm guessing because of the fireworks) and I had a hell of a time finding her and she didn't find her way back home till about 3 am.....Not impressed!!! I roasted a chicken to make soup for when my parents came for lunch the next day and then headed off to bed.....
Saturday morning I woke up and began to make soup and tidy up a little bit before the parents came over. My dad was coming to fix my dog kennel to deter two naughty doggies from escaping so I was pretty psyched, plus I really enjoy it when my parents come over. They don't do it enough.... So they come over and then shortly after my Auntie Cheryl calls and then my two Aunties and two Uncles come over to check out the place and have a visit.... My mom and dad and the A&U's take off and I head to my mom & dad's to be a nerd and hang out in the airconditioned trailer and play Sims 2. I wasn't supposed to stay because Erik ( my ex-conditional fiancee....isn't that a great title?!) and I had plans to go to a Goldeyes Game on sunday so I had to go home.....however a brutal storm brewed up and I had to spend the night..... People were pulling over on the highway and everything. Mom & Dad were out for the night so they called and told me I was staying because the roads were so awful....
Sunday morning I was up at 9 and got ready to pick up Erik and head off to the ballgame. It was already pretty warm when I woke up so I was glad I had semi cool clothes...... I arrive at Erik and Alana's Condo pretty much by autopilot due to the years and years of practically living there in my early twenties....it was nice to see that the old faithful Spindler beer garden palace now looked like a home. Good Job Alana!! we had a nice visit....Reminisced, saw some pretty funny pictures from years back that I had never seen and then took off for the game.
This was my first Goldeyes Game and first time setting foot in our ballpark so I was excited. We had wicked seats too so that was cool too. The game started off slow but then suddenly they had a bunch of good hits and a bunch of home runs so it was pretty exciting. We walked around when it got too hot in our seats and bought a few lemonades from the best place in the world........Lemon Heaven!!!! Yay!!! Erik is now convinced
that Dan isn't really working on the rigs but is rather a ballplayer for the Goldeyes...I wish! Those dudes look hawt in those red pants.... meow....
After the game ( which we had won 17-12) we headed for our old hangout spot; Grapes on Kenaston..... had a few beers and some appies and talked and talked .....it was great!!! We are definitely hanging out again soon...

Ciao For Now Kiddies.......

Sorry to hear that you are having a down week, can only hope that it picks up soon for you. I extend the invitation to you as well to stop on by my blog. I rant about a lot of things including having a bear invade my garbage shed... leaving a nice mess for all of us to clean up.

You said you are a newlywed just wondering for how long now? My hubby and I have been together for 6 years but married only going on 2.

Take care and hope this finds you having a bit better day.
