Headed Back To Florida!

It's been a while since I have written a blog, but I have been busy during the holidays with a lot of traveling! We started out in Opelika, AL with my Dads side of the family and had a really great time! The weather was great so everyone hung out outside and ate some realllly good food! We also went over to my other Grandparents, Jane and Guerry, house who live close by and celebrated with them and opened our gifts with everyone. Then on Christmas Eve we were back in Tuscaloosa and at my Moms side of the family where I ate MORE food! I went over to my brothers house on Christmas Eve and helped Hunter get Santa's cookie and milk ready, but Hunter wanted to leave Santa a cup of Powerade for extra energy...I sure hope Santa liked the little change! After we set out Santa's cookies we went out front and left the reindeer some carrots to eat! Hunter must have been a good boy this year because I think he got every toy that has ever been made! It was crazy how much stuff him and Taelor got...I am keeping tabs on everyone that is spoiling those kids, so when it's my turn there will be major spoilage (if that's even a word...)! It wasn't even cold in Tuscaloosa on Christmas, so that was a little weird to all of us! Every year we (my little brother, Colby, and I) open up our Santa gifts and then head over to see what Hunter got. When I got there Hunter and I went to see if Rudolph ate his carrots and then I heard," OH MY GOSH...Rudolph is in BIG trouble..he pooped in our yard!!!" Hahaha. Hunter could not believe that Rudolph pooped in the yard and he said that next year he needs to be potty trained. It was funny! After spending all day over there I headed over to my Step Dads side of the family and once again, ate. We did things a little different over there this year, we played Dirty Santa with money! The biggest dollar amount in one envelope was $50 so the goal was to pick that one! There were a few 20's and more 10's and 5's. It was definitely a lot of fun, although I got $5!
That was about it for Christmas, I got a bunch of good stuff this year! It's always hard trying to let people know what I want, because whatever I ask for is just one more thing that I have to haul around with me wherever Adam and I are! The big present this year was a Nikon D60 camera and ohhhhh my am I excited to play with that darn thing! Between both of our parents we got the camera, a 55-200 mm lens (which I have NO clue what that means), a really fast loading memory card, and a cute little carrying case for it! We are both very excited about it!

Today a bunch of us headed down here to my aunts house in Mary Esther, FL. My Mom, Colby, and two cousins are here so we are all just relaxing! I am leaving tomorrow morning and headed down to be back with Adam! Wooo hooo! I will be down there until he drives out for Spring Training! I am not going to be at Spring Training like I was last year, I am going to fly out to Phoenix for the last week or so and then we will drive out to SLC (most likely). We are going to only have one car out there this season, so we will see how that works! I am very ready to get there tomorrow, but I dread the 7 1/2 hour drive! We have a fun night planned for New Years, I think, which also happens to be Adams 27th birthday! Yes sir, 27 years old..he's getting on up there!!

I am sure that we will be watching the Sugar Bowl that Alabama and Utah are playing in. My old roommate in Salt Lake graduated from Utah, so I have been getting a few text messages from her about the game!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and has a Happy New Year! I will post some pictures up here and then when I get to Adams I will make a whole photo album!

Merry Christmas

I hope the Christmas season is treating everyone great so far. Only a few more days for most of us to finish our shopping. Its been rather warm down here in Florida, definitely not winter weather, there is a high of 80 degrees for Christmas day. Sometimes its nice to have the seasonal changes you see in most other states, but then again would I really be saying that if I had to shovel a foot of snow off the driveway and break ice off my windshield, probably not. We are doing the usual for Christmas this year, we have a big family dinner planned for Christmas eve and a nice brunch on Christmas day after we open presents. Lindsay will be up in Bama with her family through Christmas and then make her way down here around the 29th or 30th. I have helped run the Holiday Baseball Clinic in Venice for the last 10 years or so and I'll be doing that again on the 26th and 27th.

Its getting to that point in the offseason where I'll really start picking up the pace on my hitting. I've been going just once or twice a week, but now I'd like to start trying to get after it everyday. One of our buddies that works out up at IMG, Joey Votto (played with the Reds this year) is getting JB and I in at the Reds spring training facility in the mornings so we can all hit together. It makes it a whole lot better when there are a few of us doing our baseball stuff together. Votto said there will be a few more guys joining us after the new year.

Last Saturday a group of us went to a cool spanish styled place for one of my friends birthday. We ate some really good food and had this amazing cake that Matt's wife got for him. I forgot where she got it from but this thing was huge. The label on the outside of the box said one slice had 1700 calories and 100 grams of fat in it. It was so good! After cake we went up onto the roof of the restaurant where they have a bar over looking downtown Sarasota. Sure wish Lindsay could of been there with us, we had a good time.

With all this time I have on my hands without Lindsay here I've been reading through some good books and doing a lot of fishing, but I've just added another thing to my list.... playing the guitar. Dad has a really nice acoustic guitar that just sits around at my parents house so last time I was home for dinner I brought it back up to the place I'm staying. A long time ago Dad taught me some of the basic chords and I messed around with it but didn't practice much. Then came the time in college where my roommate Beau and I thought we could master it and we spent like a week straight playing every night until 4am and barely learned to play one stupid song. Here I am again thinking I might have a chance at playing a little so we will see how it goes. Last night I got on the computer and looked up the chord sheets for a few country songs and also went on youtube to get some videos of guys teaching you how to play those songs. With all the stuff on the internet, it was like I had my own personal guitar lessons. I played for about 5 hours and today my fingertips are almost raw. There will be no guitar playing tonight, maybe tomorrow.

The waitress just heard how many calories are in that cake.

I forgot to mention that we had a jam session at Karl's this week.  Matt and Scott seemed to take over on the vocals and spent most of the night singing together, it was hilarious .

Oh Christmas treeeeee...

Just so you know..for me, the hardest part of writing a blog is coming up with a dang title for it, so, in advance for all future postings, I apologize for all of the random titles that probably don't make sense ;)

The past few days have been quite busy for me! On Saturday my little brother, Colby, and I met my Dad in Birmingham and went to the McWane Science Center. It's a fun place to go, they have all sorts of different science experiments and activities to do. We have been several times, so now when we go it's just a short walk through to see what new things they have put up. When we left there we stopped by the Galleria and got some lunch then headed to Huntsville! We just lounged for a little bit, I wrapped a few Christmas gifts and then we were off to the Huntsville Havocs hockey game! It is a semi pro league, or as I called it, the minor leagues for hockey..I can only handle one sports terminology at a time :) It was actually a lot of fun! I was a little skeptical about going at first, not knowing if it would be exciting or not. But, let me tell you, it is a very aggressive sport! They were really getting after each other! So, by the end of the game, i was a new found hockey fan! After it was over we just went back to my Dads and went to sleep! We got up on Sunday and ate breakfast at IHOP. After that Colby and I were back on the road headed to Tuscaloosa! I ended up going straight to my brother Robbys house to hang out with him and my niece Taelor! We had lots of fun, she is just too dang cute! Hunter got there later on, he was in Nashville with his other grandparents. When he got home he did NOT look too hot. i took his temp and it was 100.8 and he said his throat hurt. So, being the lovely doctor that I am, I diagnosed him with Strep throat and planned on taking him to the doctor bright and early this morning. After going to the pediatrician this morning sure enough, he has a bad case of strep! He was not happy about having his throat swabbed..he is a little bit dramatic. Now his fever is up to 101.3 so we are giving him plenty of meds! He was supposed to go to the dentist in the morning, but we had to cancel that appointment since he is sick. But on Wednesday he is getting his tubes out of his ears..well, actually, he only has one tube left. The other one fell out at some point during the last few years. So I am just a busy bee right now!

I am getting very excited about Christmas! I still have trouble sleeping at night on Christmas Eve because I just can't wait to see what Santa has brought for me! I am going to be heading back down to Florida on the 28th or 29th to see my love! Woo hoooo!

Down here in FL

I'm back working out at IPI (International Performance Institute) at the IMG academy. There are three of us working with a personal trainer doing baseball specific exercises. We lift for about 2 hours not including warming up with cardio or throwing the football and some end of the workout stretching. We have a different trainer this year and I'm liking the stuff we're doing. Last years trainer did a great job too. These workouts are really challenging, almost threw up on the second day. I think they'll get me back to the strength I was at last year before spring training.

I'm all moved in up at one of my buddy's houses here in Bradenton. Its only about a 35 min drive to my parents house down in Venice. Mom helped me get some stuff together because there is noone and nothing inside the house. My living room has just a lazy boy and tv, my bedroom just a bed. My clothes are spread out on the floor into piles, I haven't really started to hang anything up yet. I can live pretty simply and this is about as simple as somebody could live. I like it. It will change a little when Lindsay gets here. We'll get stuff more orginized and probably have to find another lazy boy.

Nothing else really going on. Six of us did go play putt putt golf and watch monday night football for one of our friends birthdays. It's funny that no one really commented on the fact that we are all turning 27 years old and we still throw kid style birthday parties like putt putt. I think the competitive factor is still there and we love competing against eachother no matter what game it is so it was ok. The birthday boy and I battled for first all night and we finished tied so we had to play a playoff hole. Karl came out on top, only fitting that he takes home the win on his birthday. Oh, did I mention that we finished the game with pizza. Pizza and putt putt...happy birthday Karl.

My living room

All the guys waiting on our birthday pizza.

Quiet please...Karl shooting.

I have not forgotten about you!!

Well, I was going to make Adam get on here and write a blog, but who am I kidding? I realized I am just going to have to do it myself!

A lot has been going on! Adam and I met up in Atlanta this past weekend for the Alabama vs Florida SEC Championship game. We stayed with two friends of ours, Terry and Tanner Evans, who actually lived with us in Salt Lake. Terry is also with the Angels and was with us in SLC this past year, and they live in Woodstock, GA. It was about a 30 minute drive to the dome, but at least we didn't have to pay for a hotel! It was nice to visit them, outside of the baseball scene! Tanner is 8 months pregnant and wasn't feeling well, so they ended up not going to the game. We met up with her parents and got their passes to the Dr. Pepper Pre-Game party! It was a lot of fun, but we weren't there too long. Did I happen to mention that I wore high heels on this particular day? Did I also mention that it was the worst mistake of my life????? What was I thinking? Clearly, I wasn't thinking..at all. My feet were KILLING me before we even made it TO the dome! I thought that I would be okay when the game started, but it turns out that we stood up the entire game, with a few breaks in between time outs and reviews. We had unbelievable seats though. We were 22 rows up and in between the 20 & 30 yard line. It was a really good game, although with a bad ending :( I don't know what happened during most of the game because I was too busy stalking Sara Evans and Jay Barker right behind us. Sara Evans is a famous country singer and she married Jay Barker, who is a previous Alabama quarterback. So most of my time was spent turned around looking at them.

When the game was over we met Terry and Tanner at Macaroni Grill for dinner. Then we just headed back to their house and hit the sack. We woke up and went to church with them. Their church is HUGE, and it was amazing! I loved the church and would move there in a heartbeat just to attend church every Sunday! After that we grabbed some lunch then Adam and I headed our separate ways :'( Adam headed back to FL and I headed back to Bama.

Since then not too much has gone on!! Adam has just been working out and I have been hanging out at my Mom's. Today I watched an all day marathon of The First 48..I love that show! The weather is supposed to get pretty bad tonight so I am sure I will be up watching James Span on the news all night!

I don't really have much more to say, I am going to try and convince Adam to get on here and post a blog and share what he has been up to..he also is going to be the one to post some pictures!!

Talk to ya soon!

I still feel like I m recovering from eating so much during Thanksgiving! We ate so much food! It was very nice having Adam with me during the holiday..after 3 years of dating this was our first real holiday together! We have been together on other holidays like Halloween, 4th of July, and stuff like that, but this was the first Thanksgiving! It's been hard in the past since his family is in FL and mine is in AL. But, it was a lot of fun! We went to Montgomery and spent time with my Grandparents (Dad's side). We had a reallllllly good dinner there, then we left the next day. Then on actual Thanksgiving we went to my Grandparents, who live in Tuscaloosa, and ate more food there and spent time with that whole crew. I know that poor ol' Adam was a little confused about that one because there were all kinds of people there! But he survived, he left in one piece and I don't think he was too traumatized :) Now I am preparing myself for Christmas! I love Christmas time!! Looking back on this year, I would say that I have been a very good girl this year so I am hoping I made Santa one proud fellow this year! I wish I could say the same for Adam. Just kidding :) He's been alright, and I am here to tell you, and Hunter will agree, I am not scared to give Santa a little ring on the telephone, I know the phone number up to the North Pole. I have called several times when I am with Hunter, just to give Santa an update on where I think Hunt is on the big list. Santa said that Hunter needed to start obeying more, and it worked like a charm...all it takes is the phone call to the big guy...
Ok..I will stop rambling about Santa..I don't really know where I was going with that one.

This year was the first time I have ever gone shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. It was definitely crowded but I did find some steals at a bunch of stores! I am not sure if I will do it again though. We will see!

On Saturday Me, Adam, my brother Robby, and my Dad went to the Alabama vs Auburn game here in Tuscaloosa...and we won!! Woo hooo! It was such a good game! We had a lot of fun! We tailgated on the quad before the game and saw a bunch of old friends. We took a bunch of pictures on other peoples cameras, so I will try to scrounge those up and post them.

Adam went back home to FL early Sunday morning..I was sad to see him go, BUT...we are meeting up in Atlanta this weekend for the SEC Championship game. Alabama vs Florida! I am so very excited and I already have my outfit planned! I am not too sure about the exact plans, but I do know that I am going and that's all that matters! Bama has had an amazing season, and I would love to see them win this weekend!

Since Adam is gone, I don't have too much to do. Yesterday I volunteered to clean out my Moms closet, get rid of a bunch of things that I didn't think she needed. It took FOREVER!! But, the end result was quite nice! We have two gigantic bags of clothes, jackets, and other stuff to give to the Salvation Army. My room and the guest bedroom are next on the list. It's an all day kind of project, and today I just don't have the energy!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday! Sorry I don't have pictures to post, but soon, I will!

Ohhh also, I hope you enjoyed my dance skills. I can assure you that I will have it down-pat one day soon.

Back in Bama!

We are finally back in Alabama! I got here on Wednesday and Adam got here on Friday. We have just been hangin out with my family and a few friends. It is realllly cold here so I have had to swap out all of the summer clothes that I took to the Dominican and Florida and break out the sweaters and Ugg boots! I am usually not a fan of the cold weather, but it's a nice little change, for right now :)

On Wednesday when I got here I went and saw my Mom at work, then I went to pick up Hunter from school! I picked him up early because I didn't want to have to sit around and wait, so he was glad he got to leave school much earlier than usual! We went to eat at Willy T's then it was off to the mall to visit Santa! We weren't positive that he was there yet, but he was and there were zero people in line! He was SO excited! The deal was that if he sat in Santa's lap, so did I. He told Santa that he wanted a dirt bike with training wheels ( it's really just a bicycle that looks like a dirt bike), an Alabama football uniform, and a Tony Stewart race car. I was surprised that the list stopped after just three things, but I guess that's just all he could think of at the time! Hunter even told Santa that I have been a good girl this year...I couldn't agree any better! After we got our picture taken we had to go write him a letter at the Letter Station, just so he wouldn't forget what Hunter told him he wanted..then it was off to get a cookie!

Friday night when Adam got into town we took Hunter bowling at Bama Bowl. It was a lot of fun! Although I am not too proud to say that I got beat by a 5 year old, Hunter was thrilled that he beat me. The sad part about it though, is that I really did try to win, and we even had bumpers. So the boys teased me all the way home about that one. Hunter was exhausted and fell asleep as soon as we got in the car!

Saturday we just hung out at my brothers house and played with Hunter and Taelor. I can't believe how big she is getting! She is such a good baby, too! She just follows Hunter around and giggles at everything he does, it is so cute! After hanging out with them for a while Adam and I made a trip to visit our friends Lance and Jamie Cormier and their adorable son LJ! It was a lot of fun and we hope to do it again!

Sunday Adam and I took Hunter to church with us at Calvary. Hunter took his Bible with him and told us all about David and "Goliaf" on the way there. It's amazing at how much he knows about the Bible and all of the stories..he can tell you anything about it all! During church I gave him 2 packs of Gushers and a honey bun so he was all sugared up when it was over! After church Adam spent the day at Barnes and Noble and I just went to my Moms house and hung out until he was done! We met back up at Panera Bread and had dinner then went to the movies! On the drive from FL to AL I stopped in Gainesville at a Books-a-million and bought the Twilight book on CD and listened to it for the rest of the trip. I had told myself that I wasn't going to jump on that bandwagon but I just couldn't help myself! The book on CD is 13 hours long and I only had about 5 hours left of driving! Every time I would get in the car I would just listen to the book and I made it almost to the end yesterday and I just couldn't help myself, I HAD to go to the movies and see the movie that came out on Thursday. I couldn't wait any longer to find out what happened! The movie was AMAZING!!! I am officially in love with Edward Cullen!! I still want to finish listening to the book on CD and then move on the the next one! I can't wait!

I have been doing a lot of photo shop on my computer lately so I thought I would share a few of those pictures! I did these a while ago but never got around to posting them!

I hope everyone has a great week!!


Taelor and I

Yes, we had to put the Christmas tree up ;)

Lazy Bum...

That is definitely what I feel like tonight! I am sitting here watching the Alabama vs Mississippi State game in Adams room. He is at his friend Karl's house with the boys tonight. They are watching the Alabama game and playing the Wii. I am not with him because we went and played the Tiger Woods 2009 on the Wii last night and I am freakishly sore from it! It must have been a good work out! I am actually really good at the game! I was beating all 3 guys for quite some time last night, but then got bored and lost focus, and I ended up in last place. Whatever though, I am still amazing at it :) Adam and I went to a real driving range today, where I also did fabulous...I call myself the Vladimir Guerrero of golf. I have no form or anything, but I just swing really hard and hope to hit the ball. It has worked so far but I don't think my career is going to last too long doing that. There isn't a gym here that I can work out at so to stay busy we usually go for a bike ride, and we have brought out the old school roller blades a few times. Thankfully, many people in FL still think it's cool to roller blade, so I don't feel too retarded.

One night last week we went down to the beach to watch the sunset (aww, soo romantical I know). It was really pretty, there were a couple of dolphins swimming around which I was just so fascinated with, and clearly no one else was. I felt like such a tourist, most of the people have probably lived here their whole life and have seen dolphins all the time so they probably thought I was a freak every time I screamed when one would come up for air.
Adam got a call on Thursday ( I think) about two winterball teams in Mexico that were talking about him. He will know FOR SURE on Monday if he is going or not. If he isn't going, we are headed to my aunt's house on Tuesday then going to Bama on Wednesday! Whoop Whoop! Adam will only be there for a month but I will be there until Christmas, I am excited! We are going to be there for the Bama vs Auburn game and we can't wait! We have to find some tickets though! My Dad has 4 season tickets, but I am not sure if he has any extras or not. I will have to check and see!
Adam and I had a wild idea today to go to GNC and get stuff to do Ear Candling. It is done in a lot of spas and it's to get all of the ear wax out of your ears. It's a long hollow stick and you light the end on fire. The smoke makes a vacuuming effect and gets wax that you can't get with a q-tip. We were all amazed at what we saw when we unwrapped mine when we were done. The wax comes out hard and kind of looks like a piece or caramel candy. I decided that I would share my ear wax pictures with you, which I know you are thrilled about!

Not too much going on here, I am going to post some pictures and videos of our golfing and stuff!

Swing batter batter Swing!

She gets to see me hit everyday and all season long...its about time she gets a crack at it. Nice work Lindsay!

Here are some random pictures from this week
Taking a break from our bike ride down to the jetty.
This was from when Lindsay's back was really bothering her and we swung by the hosipital.
She was finally able to sit down without her back killing her after the doc gave her a nice painfully shot in the arm.

November 10, 2008

Go figure...

I love how I ask Adam to write a blog, and then he only writes two sentences. I guess that just leaves me with a bunch of non sense to write! Whoop-di-dooo...

I would like to start off with Roll Tide. If you are not aware, Alabama beat (barely) LSU this weekend. Yep. Thank You. And thank you. It was a close and very ugly game, but, a win is a win these days. If I could I would go hug and kiss every LSU player that played so horribly that led us to win. I am sure Adam wouldn't mind.

Still no word from Mexico. It looks like it's not going to happen. Adam is giving it until Thursday, so if we don't hear from them by then, he is shutting it down and telling his agent to not worry about it any more. Adam wants to go to Alabama for about a month and work out at the Alabama facility. The only problem is trying to find a place to live for a month. No apartments there do a one month lease, so it has been pretty difficult to try and find a place. He usually lives with a few friends, but it seems like all of them have moved away. So if any of you know anyone that would like a wad of money and a roommate for a month, send them our way!!!! :) But, if nothing works out then he is just going to stay here in FL and I will go home. Very frustrating!!!!

Adam and I have spent the majority of our time locked up in his room. He bought a new xbox game and I bought a game for the computer, so we have been playing those all day, every day. I bought The Sims 2 and let me tell you, it is VERY addicting! I used to play it all the time in high school, but they have improved the game since then. On Saturday night we went to a comedy club for one of our friends birthday. It was A LOT of fun! The guy was really funny! I am sure that we will be going more often.

Have a good week!

The pictures are of me playing Guitar Hero on the xbox. I thought that I would share with you my new rocker moves...

I should have worn more rocker-looking clothes...but, due to the fact that our laundry was piled up to my eyeballs, I had to borrow some of his sisters shorts..thank you Kara :)

Get ready....
Get set...
GO....I didn't know I still had the cheerleading moves in me..if only my toes were pointed this would have been a decent herkie :)

Fishing at the Jetty

Lindsay and I spent some time down by the water yesterday. She layed on the beach while I spent the whole time fishing off the jetty. Didn't catch anything.

November 5, 2008

Dun dun dunnnnn

Ok, so remember how Adam likes to post very odd/embarassing pictures of me? Wellll, we were watching some home videos of Adam and his sister Kara last night and we just happen to run into this hilarious video of him and Kara on Halloween.. I would say maybe around 1990? Adam is Steve Urkel..so..sit back, relax, and enjoy the show..oh, and turn up the volume so you can hear everything....

Sooo tired...

..of hearing about Obama! Thank goodness the election is over with! The next few years are definitely going to be interesting. I have never been into politics but last night for some odd reason I was! Ok enough about that.

Not too much has been going on since the last blog. Yesterday Adam and I took it back into the day and went rollerblading around his neighborhood. It was definitely a lot harder than I remember! Adam was of course a pro as soon as he put them on. That doesn't surprise me. After only one time around the neighborhood, I was ready to go back inside! We are going to go again today, I think.

Still no word on Mexico. I wish they would hurry up and call so I could figure out what I am going to do! I have been informed by my 5 year old nephew that I need to be at his Thanksgiving lunch at school on the 12th. I am hoping I will be able to make it! Even if Adam doesn't go I will still go home for probably 2 weeks, through Thanksgiving. For now it's still a waiting game, and I am tired of waiting!

You have probably noticed that I keep changing the layout of our blog ( or, maybe you haven't). I found a website (http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/) with realllly cute layouts, and I am having trouble decided on just one, so I think I just am going to change it all the time!

Well, I don't really have anything else to write about! I just noticed though that Adam has not posted a blog in quite some time, so I am sure he will be next.

Adam rollerblading..please notice how he has them tied on. They have been in the garage unused for atleast 10 years, so all of the straps snapped off when he tried to buckle them.

Before we went to the Dominican. This is at Joyland..a country line dancing bar in Sarasota.

Everything changes..

I have learned that with baseball, there is no such thing as PLANS. They don't exist and never will as long as there is baseball. It has taken me a while to get used to it, so I no longer get my hopes up about anything or plan anything too far in advance. Whenever people ask me where I will be at during a specific time I can't answer them! It's funny because whenever people ask me where I live I am like, "uhhhh...I don't know." It probably confuses people but that then leads into the conversation about baseball. The whole point of this blabbing is that today Adams agent called and said that the Obregon team from Mexico didn't work out. So, once again, all of the plans changed. After calling my Mom ( who was quite upset about it all) and telling her that I won't be coming home this week, I was relieved that we would finally get settled in and finally start enjoying the off season. But, ohhhhhhhhh no, not yet. After Adam got done working out, he talked to his agent (or someone from the agency) and they said that there are a couple of other teams throwing his name around. Once again, I call my Mom and tell her that I might be coming home. It is very frustrating to me because I would like to just get settled into a routine and make some plans! Like always, we will keep you posted on all of the craziness. But, I can't say that I was sad when I found out that he wasn't going to Mexico. I am very supportive of him getting as much playing time as possible, but I also like to have Adam alllllll to myself..all of the time :) Call me selfish, but he is just so dang cute.

I have been catching up on all of my shows the I usually watch. Thank goodness for internet TV. For most shows, you can go to the website of the channel that the show is on, and you can watch any episode you want. It is great! I tried to keep up with all of them in the Dominican, but when I went to the website it said that 'only viewers in the USA could watch it' so it was useless! But it has kept me occupied for many hours yesterday and today.

My back has been feeling much better the last few days. I don't know if I mentioned it in the other blog but it has been giving me some trouble! I woke up on Thursday morning unable to roll over in the bed and my lower back was KILLING me, and my legs and feet were burning like fire. At first, I thought that maybe I was dreaming. So I help my eyes oped wide for a while and blinked a lot just to make sure that I was fully awake. I was definitely awake and was trying to figure out why I couldn't move from the waist down. I have a history of being quite the hypochondriac and making things up in my head. But when I started to get dizzy and light headed from the pain, I figured it was probably about time to wake Adam up. It was 5:30 in the morning :) We eventually got up and went to the ER and the Doctor said that it was either a herniated/slipped disk ( L5 and S1 to be exact) or a pulled muscle. The nurse gave me a very painful shot that was supposed to help the inflammation, but all I could gather was that now my back AND my arm hurt. They prescribed me a few meds, one of them being a muscle relaxer which I took and I am much better now. It still hurts a little but I am hoping that in a few days it will subside...whew.

We will post some pictures soon, we haven't done anything since being back, so there aren't any to post right now. I hope everyone has a great week. I am pretty sure it's about time to start the Thanksgiving and Christmas diet. The one that most women do right before those two holidays roll around because we know we are going to indulge in unnecessary amounts of food during those times?! I know, that was really random..but, you know me. Random.

Finally, HOME!

We have been back in Florida for a couple of days now, and we are both very relieved to be back in the country! We had quite the experience on our way back (our flight on Tuesday was cancelled), but we made it and that is all that matters!

As soon as we got home on Wednesday we took a much needed nap, then for dinner we went to Beef O'Brady's and ate a huge basket of hot wings and french fries which was amazing! We also had to run around town to get our Halloween costumes! We were very excited that we were going to be back in time for all of the fun festivities! We decided that we were going to be Rednecks/hillbillies and we found everything we needed at one store!

Since we have been back, Adam has been talking to his agent about getting set up with another winter ball team. His agent called him while we were eating at Chili's last night and told him that he will be going to Mexico to play for a team called Yaquis de Obregón. I don't think it is 100% for sure yet, but most likely that's what will be happening within the next few days. I will not be attending this trip :) I am sad that we won't be together, but it won't be for too long, and I will get to spend a lot of time with my family! So, I know that it will all work out. He is going to try to work it out where they will fly me down (or over, wherever) to visit for just a few days. So we will keep you updated on all of that!
Last night for Halloween we went out with a few friends to a few different parties. We went to a house party for a little while, then headed downtown to a big block party. There were a lot of funny costumes. It was crazy how many people were dressed up as Michael Phelps and Sarah Palin. Not too many people were dressed up like Adam and I though! Our names for the night were Earl and Bobby Sue. Adam had a mullet wig with a bandana and he wore a cut off plaid shirt with his jeans tucked into his boots. I had a wig with a bandana too, and I also had a black eye from all of the beatings I take from Earl :) The best part of my costume was my fake pregnant belly and the fake cigarette that I had in my mouth all night. Every once in a while when a lot of people were around Earl would punch my pregnant belly, it was really funny.
I hope everyone had a great Halloween, we are going to get ready to watch the Florida vs Georgia football game! Check the new photo album for the halloween pictures! ROLL TIDE!


Our friend Zack was dressed up as Ace Venture Pet Detective when he is at the Mental hospital (if you have seen the movie then you should know what I am trying to say)
We found some of our cousins at a party
Before we went out. Ace, two Guns N Roses people, Earl and Bobby Sue
Earl can't wait for our son Buck to get here. :) Earl says smoking while pregnant puts a little hair on the babys chest
