Three days

Ray. People will come, Ray. They’ll come to Iowa for reasons they can’t even fathom. They’ll turn into your driveway, not knowing for sure why they’re doing it. They’ll arrive at your door, as innocent as children, longing for the past. “Of course, we won’t mind if you look around,” you’ll say, “It’s only twenty dollars per person.” And they’ll pass over the money without even thinking about it, for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they’ll walk off to the bleachers and sit in their short sleeves on a perfect afternoon. And find they have reserved seats somewhere along the baselines where they sat when they were children. And cheer their heroes. And they’ll watch the game, and it’ll be as they’d dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick, they’ll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come, Ray. The one constant through all the years Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come. ”

Three days.

Just three more days until the magic begins.

Homerun of a weekend

Hey guys! Happy Friday-eve!

So this happened today….

snow

Mr. Tumnus! Is that you? #WakingUpInNarnia

 

Gross.

It’s April 3rd for goodness sakes. I thought the expression was “April showers (not SNOW showers!) bring May flowers. Oy.

But it is Colorado after all and from what I am learning very quickly, the weather here suffers from a bad case of “I-can’t-make-up-my-mindness”.

Such is life, I guess.

In other news, I thought I would share with you some pictures from my weekend up in Wisconsin. As you all know, I am kind of a Brewers fan fanatic. Every year, I make it a point to go up for opening day, no matter where I am in the country. I’ve traveled far and wide to see my Brew Crew play ball and will continue to do so for as long as, well, ever.

This trip was even more special because not only did the Brewers reign victorious over the Braves opening day (*side note: I realized the evening of the game that I had, mistakenly of course, put my skivvies on inside out. Guess who has a new superstition tradition?!), but I was able to spend some much needed and long-awaited time with good friends (and even got to meet some new ones!).

You definitely cannot beat that!

On the docket:

A freakishly freaky after-hours Milwaukee Airport (Langoliers anyone? Eek!)

Creepy! Just creepy!

 

Getting to see this lovely lady,mary

A wicked bonfire, dare I say, the PERFECT bonfire which included wieners and s’mores. But mixed together. Because that would be nasty. Or would it…?

OPENING DAY!!!!

Friends, baseball, and little Hank. What more could you ask for, really?

 

And rounding out a pretty fantastical weekend…a trip to the zoo. We were there visiting my family 😉zoo2

And the award for the tallest (and cutest) photobomber goes to…

 

As is a rule for all weekends and vacations, they fly by way too quick. I had such an incredible time, sharing laughs and memories with the best friends a gal could ask for, and am already looking forward to next year!

But until then, you know I will be cheering on the Crew from afar (and live and in person when they come to open a can of whoop ass on the Rockies in June–speaking of which, if any of my Denver friends are interested in going to the game, let me know! I would LOVE to Brewer it up with ya!!).

Hopefully by then, all this fluffy white stuff will be long-gone.

A girl can dream…

Have a great rest of your day, friends!

And they're off! The cherizo took home the win just in case you were wondering. Don't worry guys; you don't think I'd leave you in suspense, now did you? ;)

Speaking of taking home the win, the Brewers beat the Rockies in a walk-off draw in the tenth inning! Go crew!!There may or may not have been some high-fiving, fist-pumping and screams of excitement from these two gals ;)

And of course a trip to Milwaukee wouldn’t be complete without a trip (or three) to Culver’s.

Nomonomnomnom.

Get in mah belly.

"Is this heaven? No, it's Culver's."

“Is this heaven? No, it’s Culver’s.”

It was real. It was great. It was really great.

Until May, my sweet, sweet Milwaukee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opening Day Countdown

Hey guys and gals! I hope you all are having a pretty darn amazing Sunday! As I sit nursing my first sunburn of the season (yay for uber white and freckly skin that turns lobster-esque by even mentioning the word ‘sun’!), I can’t help but think of getting uberly sunburned sitting on the bleachers this summer, eating dogs and sipping soda, cheering on these guys!

Speaking of which, here’s a little video to remind you all of what I am talking about!

Hope you all have a great rest of your Sunday! And sunscreen. Remember the sunscreen 😉

AHHHHHH!!!!!!
