It's Friday, Friday, FRIDAY!! Whoo-hooo!!! This week was kinda weeeirrrrdd.. pokey with not having much to do at work and then we get super busy running off to our activities until late every night. I'm wondering how crazy our lives will be once the kiddos come. Geez, it's overwhelming to think about. =/
You guys.. I had to play catcher at D's softball game on Wednesday night. On the all men's team. In my cute pink tennies. And no sports bra. Okay, that one wasn't such a problem. =) A player was running late so at the beginning of the game, Darin looks at me with his big blue eyes being all sweet and says,
"Can you play, please?"
Shoot. Should have worn my work clothes and sandals. I should know better. So I get out there and throw the first pitch back to the pitcher. He goes, "Man, you can throw fire!" Um, I may be a girl, but my life goal is not to throw like one. Thanks. Our first inning wasn't so hot. Our pitcher was getting them close to the plate but it wasn't hitting the "mat" behind the plate that made it a strike so none of the peeps would swing at the ball. Um, this is a CHURCH softball league, swing at the ball for pete's sake!! And then they would take their walk. But I refrained from talking smack behind the plate cuz I'm the youth ministers wife and all but gosh, SWING AT THE BALL!!! And then I got up to the plate. And of course, I swang at the second pitch because I thought if the other team saw the chick swinging at the ball, they would start swinging as well. I hit it about 3 feet in front of home plate. Um,. er.. I meant to bunt the ball. I'm sure it threw everyone off with my swinging the bat as hard as I could =) I dashed towards first thinking, "extend the poor girl some grace and miss the catch.." and he caught it and I was out. BUT.. I advanced 2 players to second and third. I only played an inning and and a half and you know what I learned? Always wear a sports bra, pack my cleats, bring an extra hair tie and bobby pins to his games.. or wear stilettos. Um, I think I'll go the wear stilettos route. =) I missed my wives of the players social time!! Geez!!!
Here's that page that I did for Niki that blogger wouldn't let me post on Wednesday.
It was so, so fun to do. Darin came up with the journaling. "Where life and love meet, there is FOCUS" I told him I wanted something that wasn't typical.. no LOVE title or such. Man, he's good. Niki gave me a few other pictures to work with so this will not be the last Niki/Chris wedding page. =) Thanks for letting me play & create, Niki!!!
Peasers.. did you know that you can figure out how many views your pages get on 2Peas? If you want to know how, shoot me an email. It's really pretty interesting!!!
Darin's gunna be gone all next week. =( He's taking our high school youth boys to a camp. He leaves on Sunday morning and doesn't get back until Friday night. I'm going to miss him!! This is also the first time I have spent this many days in a row at our house. Alone. Ahhh.. wish me luck in not being scared or wish me some marathon scrap time to keep my mind off of him being gone!! =) Gosh, 3 more nights will open up with me not attending his softball and flag football games!! I'm going to miss him, though. =/
Okay, have a great weekend, all!!!
