Take me out to the ball game

Our 3rd anniversary was last Wednesday but it was such a busy day for both of us. Matt had meetings and I had to work a big fundraiser at work for the Easter fire victims. We knew we wouldnt be able to properly celebrate that day so we decided to do something Thursday evening instead.

We had an ultrasound Thursday morning with the fetal development (high risk)doctor to check out the lil peanut and then Matt was supposed to go back to work. He however surprised me by taking the rest of the day off and got us tickets for the Cleveland Indians game that afternoon.

It was a noon game against the Royals early season so it really wasnt packed. There was nobody really there. It so so awesome to be able to sit in the sunshine and have a big hot dog with stadium mustard and some nachos.(quality nutrition for the babe... lol... but I have been being SO good) If only I could have had a beer.... but let me tell you the lemonade I had was mighty tasty.

The tribe ended up winning thanks to Grady's home run in the 8th inning that brought 3 runners home. It was so fun. Our seats here very high up but directly behind home plate. We had a spectacular view of everything. This is my view without the camera zoom! We usually sit behind the dugout on 3rd base, but I think I liked this view better (plus they were cheaper and we are on a budget)

Afterwards we went wandering around Cleveland. We were going to go to the Rock & Roll hall of fame but by the time we got there we would have had less than 2 hours to view everything. We decided to wait and go back when we had 3-4 hours to truely see all of it. (They had alot of Pink Floyd stuff I want to see) So we checked out the free portions of the museum and then wandered around the gift shop for a bit. It was a beautiful fun filled day.

Pregnant brain is a biatch

So let me tell you what happened to me on Sunday. I swear I am not a total ditz.... a blonde yes, but not a ditz.

A few months ago I bought my husband tickets to go see Flight of the Conchords for our anniversary. They were playing at one of the local colleges and I was able to get pretty good seats on ticketmaster. We both were anxiously awaiting the concert and talking about it constantly.

Flash forward to Sunday. My dad calls me to say that the entire family is going to dinner that night. My aunt and uncle were in from Maine and I feel like I havent seen them in forever. Of course I wanted to go. We drive 45 minutes north to go have dinner at 6:30. We are sitting there bsing with everyone and laughing about silly stuff when all of the sudden my brain clicks. OH FRAK we are supposed to be AT THE CONCERT!

Yes my pregnant brain had completely forgotten to go. (dont ask me what my husbands excuse was)

The concert started in 45 minutes. The only problem being our tickets were at home on the fridge.

So my husband jumps in the car and speeds home to get the tickets. Halfway there he calls me and tells me to call the box office to see if they can do anything. Luckily I purchased my tickets thru ticketmaster with my credit card so they were able to reprint my tickets. He quickly sped back to get me.

We made it to the concert 15 minutes late.... but all we missed was about 5 minutes of Mel who was opening while we tried to find our seats (which people were in and it was chaos in the arena... so our tickets were upgraded to even better seats so it worked out for the best)

and the concert was AWESOME! So much fun. I could have taken my shoe off and hit Jermaine he was so close shakin his sugarlumps. It kicked ass.
