The Hen House is Rockin’ Tonight

*An email conversation with Jeff*

Me: “Would you rather have Mud Hens tickets for tomorrow night or Wednesday? Both games start at 7.”

Jeff: *crickets*

Me: “I grabbed the ones for Wednesday. Hope that works for you!”

Jeff: “Possibly the hottest day of the year.  I hope there’s a breeze!”

I am a big fan of baseball games. I love the food (even if it wreaks havoc on your arteries). Watching the post-game fireworks after Saturday night games are a sight to behold. Don’t forget the people watching! I get a kick out of seeing little kids running around with their baseball gloves and old guys keeping track of the game stats.

I am not, however, a big fan of high temperatures. Today’s high? 100 degrees. So against my better judgement, we’re heading to the ball park tonight. Go Hens!

I will most likely end up looking like a sweaty mess but the yellow cake batter ice cream and cotton candy are totally worth it.

Mixed Tape Monday!

Phew, what a weekend! You can read about our Friday and Saturday antics over at sowonderfulsomarvelous. Great food and wine taste better when they are shared with dear friends.

Sunday turned into one of those days where you make a list of things to accomplish and you end up crossing nothing off your list. I spent a decent chunk just staring at my sewing machine, searching for the inspiration to finish a project. However, I did manage to put together a playlist. Here are just a handful of tracks (with links!) that helped make my weekend fly by.

What do you have in store for this week? Me, I’m hoping that some hardware I ordered shows up before Friday. I will finish these dog collars.

Oh, and someone’s birthday is coming up. Do you have any suggestions on what to get a 30 something gadget geek for his birthday? I need all the help I can get.

The Year of the Steph

2010 cannot get here fast enough. I know, I know. Christmas is still two weeks away, why rush it? I’m just really anxious about filing 2009 away in the “done” pile. This past year started off with so much promise but as life is wont to do, those really good things are counteracted with hardship. That’s life I suppose and things could always be worse.

If 2009 was my quarter-life crisis year then 2010 is my response, “The Year of the Steph.” I’m taking the lessons I learned from the past 365 days, storing them away and stepping into 2010 with a new attitude.

This next year is going to be about finding my voice and stepping outside my comfort zone. Luckily, I have a very supportive husband, family, friends and this blog to keep me accountable. So my goals for 2010:

– Cut my credit card debt in half

– Apply for graduate school

– Have an active Etsy store

– Get accepted for the Renegade Craft Fair

Volunteer more (and convince Jeff into becoming canine foster parents!)

And to get things started, I got a sassy new ‘do. Thank you Tiffany at Twisted Scissors. And no, they did not pay me to say that.

One thousand and ninety five days.

Patient. Smart. Kind.

Understanding. Helpful.

Did I mention patient?

Without you, I would be overtipping or undertipping every waiter in the city. Who would take me to the emergency room when I walk into glass doors, step on rakes or slice an appendage or two?

You are my rock. You keep me sane. You inspire me to be a better person.

So here’s to three years of marriage.  May we celebrate many more.

Happy anniversary, babe. Cheers.
