Grand Slam

Yesterday the Bees had a double header (two games in a row, but only 7 innings instead of 9). The first game went by fairly quickly, but the second game?!?!? Holy cow, it ended up going into extra innings, I think there were 9 innings total. I had gone down to the family room at the beginning of the 7th inning because I didn't think the Bees would tie the game up and go into extra innings. Down in the room there you can listen to the game over the intercom thingy, so when I heard that the game was going into extra innings, I was just thrilled **enter sarcasm here**. So, here comes the 8th inning..still tied. Here comes the 9th inning..still tied. But, before the 9th inning is over with, Adam comes up to bat with the bases loaded. Ball 1...Strike 1..Strike 2...GRAND SLAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ThankyousweetbabyJesus!!!! And I totally missed it! To be completely honest with you, I didn't even know Adam was up to bat. This is what happened:

Steve Klauke (Bees announcer on radio): It's up there, it's out there, and it's gooooonnneee!!"

Me (to the other girls): Yeeesssss, the game is over!!

Steve: something Adam Pavkovich blah blah blah (I just heard Adams name and figured he homered)

Me: Finally!!! He got a home run!!! My life just got so much easier!!

Other girls walk in: Oh my gosh, I can't believe he got a grand slam!!

Me: HOLY #%(*&%@!!!! (ok, not really...) I just thought it was a home run!

ok, you get the point. I was so happy!! Moral of the story though, I need to start paying attention to the games. All of the guys were so happy..and most importantly, Adam was happy! Here is the article from the Bees website. And here is an article from a local newspaper.

The guys left this morning at 10:45 since it's a 2:00 game today. I hope it's not too hot!

Yesterday me, Candice, and Lori went to the pool at the Sheraton and got some sun! It was so hot, but the pool felt nice! I have been called into work a few times, so far, so good! They aren't open on Sundays, so I don't have to worry about getting called in!

Hmm..I don't think I have anything else that interesting to talk about, I will post some pictures a little bit later on!! Ta-ta!!!

Rise and Shine!

Yes, I am fully aware that it is 2:14am and I am writing a blog. Welcome to my life. Not sleeping. I even took it to a whole 'nother level tonight on trying to get to bed early. I sat on the couch and drank a beer while watching So You Think You Can Dance. Do you think that even remotely helped me? Nope! Not one bit! Shhheeeessshh! I mean, really, this is ridiculous. Want to know what I have been doing all night so far? Well, for starters, I watched an episode of The First 48, which is just stupendous considering I am a total wimp at night. Then, I came downstairs and downloaded a bazillion songs onto Lime wire so Adam can update our ipod (which, by the way, did you know that we named our ipod when Adam we got it? Yep, his name is Black Bastard. I don't think we have ever not called him by his name). Then I paroozed my way to this HI-larious website. I love little kittens, so this is a good one. Har har har. And now, I am writing a teeny tiny little bloggy! Dedication, I have it.

Oh me oh my, my computer only has 32% battery left..I better hurry! oksomaybeifIjustwritelikethisIcanhurry...wait..what was that? Too fast? Ok.


Holy guacamole..want some good news?? I am no longer UNemployed! **Hallelujahhhhhhh** I got a job at a spa, yes, the spa. But, I went back today and it was much better. So, nothing to worry about. I will keep you updated on how it is going.


This afternoon (or wait, should I say yesterday?!?!) a few of us girls met up at a tanning salon near by we all got some pretty spiffy spray tans! Since the guys are coming home we figured we wanted to look smokin' hot we would get nice and tan for the upcoming games so we could wear shorts...finally!! I got the darkest one you could get...I will take a few pics at the next game and you can see for yourself.
Oh yeah, and we totally got stood up by Adam and his non existent blog that he was supposed to write. No worries though, it will be here soon...


The guys get in soon..like, as in a few hours. I think I should be going to bed now. Good idea. Nighty night! Hopefully this will be my last post that I write at 2:30am...let's hope.

Here is a picture from my new fav website

Hiking "Hill B"

On Tuesday I had planned on staying at home and brushing up on my domestic skillz..but, as it turns out, I ended up hikin' up the mountain. Lori, Candice, and I drove right down the street to the base of a mountain and started the hike! There were a lot of people there & the weather was perfect-o! We decided to hike up "Mill B" because there was supposed to be a big lake once you make it to the top. So, you know, we have somewhat of a motivation to get to the top. HA..yeah right! To get to the top of the mountain it's about 3 miles, and we made it about half way and then turned around. It was so hard!! We decided that we are going to gradually work our way to the top. My favorite part of the hike though was the going back down part! Imagine that! By the time we were done, we were starving! You would think "Hey, we just hiked a mountain, lets finish this day off by eating something healthy."..ummm. notsomuch. We went to Cafe Rio. Mexican food. 'Nuff said.

This has been a verrrry long road trip, so I am very ready for Adam to get back on Friday. I am counting down the hours. Knowing Adam, being so miserable without me, he is probably counting down the minutes. Umm what was that?? You think I made that up? You're right, I did. But a girl can dream can't she? This road trip hasn't been the best for Adam..batting wise. I really haven't been keeping tabs on every hit, because I don't think there has been many. He still hasn't had a good at bat, so it's just a waiting game on when that will be. (**OMG pppphhhheeeeewwww, ok so we have a skunk that lives near our house, and I think he just marked his territory outside of our window...it smells....really bad)..Sorry about that..umm...where was I? Umm yeah so baseball= not good right now..maybe I will make ask Adam to write a post about what's going on...hmm..as a matter of fact..I am going to call him right now...can you hang on for a second? Why thank you!

Alright, I'm back..let me recap on that conversation...

***Riiiiinnnnnnngggg...Riiiiiinnnnngggg.....***

Adam (who, by the way, is playing poker with the boyz): Hey...my sweet little beautiful love of my life (ok, he didn't say that..I made that up)

Me: Hey, do you think you could write a blog tomorrow?

Adam: From here???

Me: No genius, I want you to fly to Maine, and write it from there Yes, from there

Adam: Oh, yeah, uh sure! Are you about to go to bed?

Me: No, I just got all gussied up and am about to hit the town Nope!

blah blah blah

There you have it kids, we will see if he will write a post tomorrow!

Today Lori (Bobby Wilson's girlfriend) and I went to the Sheraton to lay out by the pool. Um, thank you, I am a lobster..but just on the front, which looks just marvelous. Thankfully, all of us girls have a date tomorrow night at the tanning bed. We are all getting spray tans! Thank goodness, I am tired of making everyone tan on my photo shop! (Oops, I don't think I was supposed to let you in on that secret...)

Do you want to hear about my sleeping problem that has suddenly taken over my life? Come again? You do? Perfect! As it turns out, I have somehow turned into an insomniac. I don't go to bed until about, ohhh I would say 3:30 am. I don't know what is wrong with me! I am so tired at about 10pm but then I get a second wind and I can't fall asleep! I have to make myself go to bed, like a toddler. I don't know what it is. I just sit there and think about the most random things that eventually turn into me thinking about absolutely bizzarre things. For instance...the other night I was just lying in bed thinking about my hair.

"Man, I think I kind of want to go back to being blonde again."

"But, I think it looks weird when people have blonde hair and dark brown eye brows..."

"Why do we even have eyebrows???"

"Speaking of, I need to get my eyebrows waxed.."

See..I have got to stop that! Not that any of you care about any of that..but I just thought I would throw that out there, you know, just to make you think that I am that much more of a weirdo. You're welcome.

Ok, I think I am just going to go to bed now, My brain is no longer functioning correctly due to Pepe Le Pew that lives outside our window...farewell!!..err...I mean, goodnight...

Beauty & The Beast

That's the name of the spa that I had an interview for. Yes people, Beauty & The Beast..if I'm lyin, I'm dyin'. I was skeptical about going, just from the name of the place, and when I arrived skeptical turned into holy guacamole I'm really skeptical. The owner was alright..he definitely looked creepy, but was actually pretty nice! He is kind of desperate for massage therapists, and the interview kind of turned into a therapy session for him. I think he just needed to vent and I was just the person to listen! I don't think he asked one question that was normally asked during an interview (like, "why do you want to work at Beauty & The Beast?"..by the way..I can't type that without giggling...). Instead he proceeded to tell me that most of his employees talk about him behind his back, and that he isn't much of a "boss" to them because they are the only workers that he had. So, after I gave him some words of wisdom about gossip, he then asked if I could give him a one hour massage. I mean, I should be able to do that, considering I am a massage therapist. But, I hadn't gone to the interview prepared to give a massage. I mean, I had on a nice long sleeve shirt that, quite frankly, I didn't want to get oil all over. But, instead of complaining, he got a massage. Boo. He smelled really bad. And he had a crusty hand. After I was done, he said to come back next week and give him another massage, because he still had people to interview. Whatev. I'm not really sure how I feel about the place, but at the point I am at right now, whoever offers me a job, I'm taking it! We will see how that goes! I also went to a really nice golf course today by our house, and I think I have a much better chance of getting that job, which would be ah-mazing!! He said he was going to call me in a few days. I kind of bribed persuaded him into free Bees tickets if I was hired. Did it work? I sure hope so!!

Last night Adam played in the game and was the DH. I was very nervous since he hasn't been doing so hot. I was watching the game on the computer and every time I watched him bat, he struck out. Then I stopped watching and he got 2 hits. What the heck!?!?! I didn't care though, as long as he got a few hits, I was happy! He told me I couldn't watch today, but I am :)

Well boys and girls, that's all I have for tonight! Oh, I just got done "seeing" my Daddy-O on the web cam!! Those things are the bomb!!!
*I don't know what happened, but for some reason the email that we normally send out when we update, it disappeared. So, if you can email me your email address to Ldevore7@gmail.com*

**ohmygoodgolly** My nephew graduated from Kindergarten today **tear**..sad day. Oh wait, nevermind, not too sad. He's repeating. Maybe I will be there for next years kindergarten graduation! :) Pictures posted below!!

Getting back on track...

Sorry, I know...I haven't been a very good blogger..but, have no fear, I am back in action! But I must warn you, some posts may be pretty boring! Hmmm, where do I even begin? I mean, what day is it today?? (this is what happens when you have no life...or job..or anything important and exciting happen, for that matter..) Ok....I'm done rambling.

This past home stand seemed like it lasted forever! The Bee's played Omaha and Iowa, and during both series Adam went 7 for 26 (4 singles, 2 doubles, 1 triple, and maybe a few walks here and there). He is still in a slump, so I am very anxious for tonight's game to see how he does! The game tonight is on MiLB TV , so if you want to register with Milb you can watch the game on the computer tonight! It's like watching it on TV..but on the computer?!?! I am pretty sure the last time I watched a game on Milb TV Adam struck out and I flicked him on the computer screen..I will try to contain my frustration this time around :)
One of the games during the home stand was Kids Day (the game started at 10:35 am), and ohmygosh let me just tell you how much I hate this day. Don't get me wrong, I l-o-v-e kids, can't wait to have em'. But, what I don't enjoy is being trampled over by elementary aged kids who are twice my size and don't watch where they walk. I mean, seriously, what in tarnation are these parents feeding their kids to be the size of Hulk Hogan?? They must be slipping steroids in their Lucky Charms for breakfast, or something! All of that rambling leads me to this- I only showed up at the game that day in time to pick Toasty up. I probably forgot to explain what Kids Day is at the field. Well, it's where all of the elementary schools in SLC get to skip out on school that day and come watch the Bee's play. The weird thing about it is that the kids don't actually watch the game. They just sit in their seats and scream at the top of their little lungs, for no reason, just because the jumbo-tron says "SCREAM" on it. Yes, annoying. It stresses me out just telling you about it, so I am going to stop.

Since the game that day was over quite early, Adam and I headed over to the Gateway Mall and got massage at a really nice spa. I was SO excited!! We went there last year and got massages, so we knew that we would be worth our Adams money to go again. It was stupendous!!!

Yesterday the guys actually had an off day, although, it wasn't much of an off day. They had to be at the airport at 3 pm to fly to Albuquerque for 4 days, then they fly to Round Rock, TX for 4 more days. Needless to say, it's going to be a loooonnnng road trip :(

This morning I had to wake up at 5:15am to take Giselle Rodriguez (Sean Rodriguez's wife) and Sofia to the airport. She is 8 1/2 months pregnant and is flying home to Arizona to have the baby! So, the next time I see her, Sofia will be a big sister! She is having a little boy, and I can not wait to see what he looks like!! (Her and Sean make beautiful babies, I think if Adam and I could clone Sofia, we would in a heartbeat!!)

Ok hmm..what else is there to talk about?!?!

OH, yes...yesterday after dropping the guys off, a few of us girls met up at the Gateway to have dinner together! It was me, Tanner & Asher, Lori (Bobby Wilson's girlfriend), and Candice (Brad Coon's wife). We went to a place called Happy Sumo Sushi. But, I don't eat sushi so I got Sweet & Sour Chicken. Nom Nom Nom. It was good..but quite expensive! (which is just perfect you know, because I am so rich these days **enter sarcasm here**) After that Lori and I headed to the Bebe store because Candice had been there a few days before and said that they were hiring! We filled out applications, and the manager just so happens to be a huge Bee's fan. Cha-Ching!! She kind of gave us an on-the-spot interview, which I was so not prepared for, but I survived. I sure do hope she calls! If I don't find a job soon, I am going to have to start digging in the dumpsters to find food, and then I will have to join the homeless park downtown. No. Seriously. Poor is not even the word. So, please pray that I can find a job!!!!!!

Ok...this post is officially over. G'day mate!

Who is this adorable little chap, you ask???

It's this lovely young man that is in this picture with me :)

Why haven't I blogged lately?

I have no good excuse, I just haven't felt like it! Nothing new or exciting has happened, so there isn't really anything interesting to write about. Adam has been doing really well at the plate..most games he has been going 2 for 2, a few doubles, some singles, and maybe a walk or two. Last night was the first time in a while that he didn't play. It was Breast Cancer Awareness night so the guys wore bright pink jerseys. During the game there was a table where all of the jerseys were being auctioned off, and whoever won got to come down on the field after the game and meet the players, and get autographs. Adam's beautimous little humongous jersey sold for $200. Not too bad!


We have had a house full of people since the guys have been home! Our roommates girlfriend, Lindsay, is here visiting from CA, and Tanner's brother, Ben, is visiting from CO. And every morning Brandon Wood has been over for breakfast. Good times! This morning Adam had to be at the field at 8:30 to help run a camp, so, being the lovely trophy wife in training girlfriend that I am, I woke up at 7:30 to make him chocolate chip pancakes! He left and I went back to sleep...until 12:30. Oopsie daisy! I was one tired pup!

Yesterday I finally got to see my neice and nephew! We used the computers webcams, and let me tell you, Hunter was amazed! Taelor was all up in the camera waving and saying ,"hhhaaaayyyy...HHHAAAAAYYYY!!!" I sure do miss those little turds cuties! We are definitely going to make it a regular thing to do!! I took a picture of the ichat...


So, remember how I said earlier that Brandon Wood has been coming over every morning for breakfast? Well, apparently he didn't see the sign in the front of our 'hood that says "if you park on the road, you will get towed."..well...you guessed it..his truck got hauled off this morning. After calling around to all of the towing places, we still couldn't find out where his truck was...so this is what they did...


...and so far we have had two people come knocking on our door giving us the name of a possible towing companies. haha.

Adam is playing left field tonight, and I am going to take some pics today. Sorry this post was a tad bit boring, but sometimes, our life is boring..welcome to the baseball life. :)

Oh, I must warn you..I am in the process of changing the background to the blog again, so be prepared to,possibly, see a new background every time you visit...just warning you

May 13, 2009

It's a full house again!

Well, the guys are finally back! They were only gone to Portland for 4 days, you know, just long enough for me to get the basement nice and clean. It now looks like an F-5 tornado came through. I even cleaned the bathroom, which I hate to do. You know what really bothers me?? When I am brushing my teeth or washing my face and I see all of these little hair stubbles allllll over the sink. Adam will swear up and down that when he uses his electric razor thingy-ma-jig that "the little hairs go up into the razor." Holy cow, let me tell you that's the biggest lie I have ever heard! I could make a wig out of all that mess that I cleaned up the other day! Does anyone else have this problem? The other problem is that Adam seems to leave his un-packed suitcase right smack in the middle of the room. But, I guess I have no room to talk, I still haven't unpacked from Vegas! I am trying to dig down really deep to find the motivation to unpack it, but I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off, trying to find a job!!

I wrote a post the other day on the oh-so-lovely job hunt, but then deleted it after I realized I kind of came off as a psycho. So, if you read it, lucky you, if you didn't...just know that I drove around all of SLC only to get denied by pretty much every place I went!!!!! I went to pre-schools, tanning salons, more spas, a doctors office, a hair place, even Edible Arrangements...and nothing!! But, I did have one of the pre schools call me back yesterday...this is how that conversation went with the director...

Director: Hello?

Me: Hi, is this Willow Creek Montessori?

Director: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, yes. Hi. Um, I'm sorry you caught me off guard because you called me on my cell phone. Uhhhhhhh.

Me: Well dufus, you called me from your cell phone, so this is the only number I have I was just returning a call about the pre school teaching job that I applied for the other day.

Director: Yes, I see. How much experience do you have in the childcare field?

Me: Well, I worked in a pre school in Alabama for about 5 or so years, and when I wasn't working there I baby sat many kids!

Director: Oh..errrr...well, yeah. That's not that much experience I don't think. Hmmm..welllll...let's see.

Me: **Speechless** (I mean , REALLY? Is she serious? Is she playing a joke on me? Because personally, I think that's a lot of experience, I could probably change a diaper, with my eyes closed, and at the same time, wipe another kids nose, all while breaking apart a brutal fight over the new shiny toy).

Director: But, I'll tell ya what, why don't you just come on in on Thursday and we can talk for a while and see what we can do.

Me: YeahOkayWhatever Ok, sounds good!!

Yeah, so that is how that call went yesterday! But, they are the only place that has called me back so far..beggars can't be choosers!

Adam did so good in last nights game! He went 2 for 5 with a single, a triple, and 2 RBI's! Hallelujah! He was very happy about that! Although, the guy that was pitching when he got the triple was a position player, not even a pitcher. So, I don't know how Adam really feels about that, but a triple is a triple! **Baseball Lesson of The Day**..when a team is losing really bad (like last night, 15-7) and they know they aren't going to win, they will use a position player as a pitcher so they don't burn through all of the real pitchers..make sense??!! Oh, did I mention that I am so desperate for a job that I asked the General Manager at the field if they were hiring. He said,"Well, so like, you wanna rake the field?" I was like,"PPsshhh, I'm desperate, so yes, I would rake the field." He laughed. Really hard. I think he thought I was kidding, but I wasn't. He also said that they just had to lay off 2 people, so they weren't hiring. Baaaahhh!

When Adam got home the other day he taught me how to play spades...ohmygoodgravy I think I am obsessed. Last night when we got home from the game we played against our roommate, Chris, and his girlfriend,Lindsay (I know, we have the same name AND spell it the same, you know, because we are just cool like that.). It was a lot of fun and Adam and I dominated!! Yes sir!


Oh my gosh, totally random, but can I just tell you how excited I am for the Grey's Anatomy season finale? Well, not so excited that this season is already over, but good heavens I can't wait to find out what happens! Eeeeeekkkk!!! And no, I will not be attending the game on Thursday due to Grey's coming on. Adam understands though, Grey's always comes before baseball..it always will :)

Adam and a few other guys just left to go visit some kids at Shriner's Hospital, so this is the perfect opportunity for me to go clean!! Adios!





Adam and I at the game last night




Sofia, already learning how to watch the Gameday on the computer!

Adam signing some autographs last night! Why doesn't anyone want my autograph??






May 7, 2009

Excuse the rambling, but I'm starvin'

And we all know what happens when I am hungry..I tend to ramble and forget what I am talking about. There, you can't say you haven't been warned! Hmmm..now where do I begin?? (It probably doesn't help that I am watching last weeks episode of Grey's Anatomy...can we say super distracted?!!!)

Adam has been doing MUCH better at the plate..him and the other guys we live with video taped batting practice and the game the other night, so they came home and did a little review of it all. Terry and Chris helped Adam out a little and gave him some pointers on how to improve. Adam didn't play in the first game back but here is a recap of the last two games he played:

May 5th:
1st at bat- Walked (then the next batter grounded into a double play, so he didn't score)
2nd at bat- Singled on a bunt (then Brad Coon hit a grand slam, so everyone scored!!!)
3rd at bat- Singled again (then also scored thanks to the next batter)
4th at bat- Struck out
5th at bat- Called out on strikes

May 6th:
1st at bat- Walked (then scored)
2nd at bat- Flew out to right field
3rd at bat- Singled (then scored)
4th at bat- Struck out

Soooo, all in all he is ding much better! Last night when he flew out to right field, it was soooooo close to being a home run. If the guy hadn't have jumped so high and caught the ball it would have probably been a HR. Adam says that is a "quality at bat"..meaning that even though he was out, it was still a god hit. He isn't playing tonight so we will have to wait until tomorrow to see if he is still feeling comfortable and all the jazz....

(ok, I can't take it anymore..I have to go feed myself...I will return soon........)

I'm back, my veggie corn dogs are in the oven as we speak!

Today is National Prayer Day so Adam, Terry, Matt Brown, and I went to a breakfast at the Hilton where about 150+ pastors, church leaders, and all sorts of other people gathered to pray for several different topics. There was a speaker there who was so completely incredible, we could have stayed all day to listen to his testimony and his story. His name is Nick Vujicic and he was born in Australia...with no arms or legs. He has a little foot-like nub thing that he calls his "chicken leg" and he uses that to do incredible things. He can even type 48 words a minute on the computer!! He shared a little bit of his testimony with us, but you can watch this YouTube clip and get a little glimpse. He said today that he had a dream to be on Oprah..so he prayed about it and "Oprahs people called his people" and he will be on the Oprah show soon ( I cant remember when)..he wants to know what she thinks about Jesus...I used to like Oprah..until I watched this. I can't wait to watch Nick on that show!***bbbwwahahahahahahaha***

Oh snap....my corndogs!!!!!!!!!!!! be right back.............

Ok, I had a much longer post going on in my head, but I just realized that it's game time! I will post again tomorrow! But, enjoy these pictures until then!





What would a post be without a picture of Sofia??



Matt Brown, Adam, and Terry Evans waiting on Coon to touch home, after his grand slam!



Toasty coming in for the score




Ok, so these last 3 pics should be in reverse order...



I like to say that Adam is saying,"Thank you sweetbabyJesus that I am on base..."..but he is just looking at a helicopter..




Like before..these last two pics are out of order

Back from Vegas!

Hi stranger...miss me while I was gone? WHAT???? NO?? Pshhh, yeah right, stop denying it..you checked my blog everyday to see if I had updated, and everytime you were just devastated..until now... :) We had a great time in Vegas, but I was glad to get back home! If I had to eat one more meal that wasn't out of my refrigerator I was gonna die. Yes, literally die if I had to swipe my poor little debit card through those stupid little machines...for food..food that is automatically priced $750 more because you are eating in Vegas...ohmygosh, I am already rambling and it's only the first paragraph..this is gonna be fun.



On Wednesday Adam and I got up bright and early at 10:00am to head to the good ol state of Nevada..which by the way was one of the many states that was infected with the Swine Flu. Stupendous. I drove the first half while the princess...ahem...I mean, Adam..got to sleep for a little while longer. After about 2 1/2 hours we switched though, because I was exhausted from only getting a few hours of sleep the night before (I took a nap Tuesday afternoon..and acidentally slept for a few hours). Once we switched seats I just knew that I was going to get a good nap in and be nice and rested for the show that night. Do you think that happened? Of course it didn't! Why on earth would I actually take a nice long nap? I think I slept for about 30 minutes. I was just too excited I guess. As soon as we get into Vegas we checked into the hotel and I got ready for the Cirque du Soleil show while Toasty went and sat by the pool.

I wish I could write a big long paragraph about "O", but I am speechless about it. It was THE most amazing thing I have ever seen! We had perfect seats and I don't think I blinked the entire time. After we got out I couldn't even remember if I clapped..I don't think I moved at all during the show. Hmm here is a little video that I found on YouTube..but trust me, it doesn't even do justice on the real thang. Most of the show is performed over a big tank of water, but during certain points a stage thingy-ma-jig covers the water, so then it's like a hard floor....catch my drift on this? The whole point of going, I think, was so that I would finally shut up about going, but now that I have gone, I just want to see the other shows that they put on..uh oh!! Poor Adam :)


The rest of the trip was just filled with baseball games and eating! We would walk around at night to people watch, but as far as going out to all of the hot spots or gambling..nada. But, it was really a lot of fun! A few girls ended up coming so we hung out by the pool a lot..got a little fried!


Yesterday the team had a game at noon, then they flew back after, so I ended up driving home (well, I actually followed one of the girls back). We made perfect timing though, the guys got in about 30 minutes after I got home!


The first game Adam played in while we were there he went 1 for 5 with a single. The next game, o for 4. The third game he went 1 for 5 again with another single. Sooo..I wouldn't say it was the best series in history..but we'll take it. It seems like the whole team is kind of struggling right now, but somehow they are leading triple-a in wins..hmm..weird.


So, remember how I got a new phone before I left? Well, I took it back today and switched it out for a Blackberry Curve. I just couldn't bring myself to really love the other phone. It was not growin' on me like I had planned. It was the easiest thing ever to take it back too! I had prepared myself for it to be the most difficult thing that has ever happened, and it turns out, it happens all the time. That's what I get for being a drama queen.


Ohhh yes, little ol' me made a teensie weensie little mistake though before taking my phone back..I took a lot of pictures on that brand spankin new phone of mine while we were in Vegas..and forgot to transfer them onto the pooter (..that's the computers nickname) before I took it back. Shame on me...
