Diamondbacks win series 4-3

A month ago the Diamondbacks were in Milwaukee and won the series 2-1.  The Milwaukee Brewers were in Phoenix for a four-game series and ended up tying 2-2.  Overall, the Diamondbacks are the big winners and the Brewers are the big losers.  Husband... do you hear me?  DIAMONDBACKS ROCK!

Waiting... I hate waiting....

So I applied for a position that I am DYING to get.  It is in my field of concentration... marketing... it is a company that does philanthropic work (not a must but a plus).... and it's a company where there is room for learning, growth and movement (a serious must).  But now, I wait.  I applied, I talked to a contact I have at the company... but I can't do anything else but wait.  Patiently.  Did I mention I'm not very patient?  If I can't be in some sort of control then I am not happy.  Right now.... not happy.  I'm doing everything I can to keep my mind off of it but it's really hard.  All I'm thinking about is this potential career move.  Sigh... so now I sit here and wait.

Love the one you're with

This past weekend my entire family went to Palo Alto, CA to visit my Grandmother.  She turned 89 in June and we went out to celebrate.  The thing I love about visiting my Grandmother is just being with her.  We go at least once a year to visit, but it never seems like enough.  She's definitely losing it, but she has many moments of clarity and brilliance.  I can't tell you how many times I heard her say "back in my day, you wouldn't catch nice young men visiting old bags in an old folks home.  But today they are so nice and they want to talk to you!"  My husband just laughed and kept explaining that he was happy to be there and hang out.  My Dad on the other hand wasn't always happy to be there.  He remembers Grandma in her prime where she would kick ass and take names.  I think he misses that women and hates having to be the one in charge.  But he's doing good at it and I hope he loves every minute he gets to spend with her.  Right now my Sister has my point-and-shoot camera which has photos with Grandma, but the ones I can post now are ones I took with my fancy camera.

Palo Alto is where my heart really belongs

The family is off to Palo Alto to visit my Grandmother.  My parents, my sister, sister's boyfriend, my husband, and I are all venturing to Palo Alto, CA to enjoy some cooler weather and to celebrate my Grandmother turning 89.  Should be a lot of fun.  Lots of photos to come.  Have a great weekend!  xoxo

Diamondbacks 2 - Brewers 0... going for the sweep today

For anyone keeping score, the Diamondbacks have won the first two games of the three game series.  Going for the sweep today.  Luckily the Husband hasn't been upset with me.  He's mad at The Crew for a terrible lineup and some terrible ballplaying.  For me, I'm just happy I get to watch a Diamondbacks game and it's just a little bit sweeter that they won both games.  I explained to The Husband that I would most likely convert to being a Brewer fan (especially when we have kids... I know he'll brainwash them into all things Wisconsin) BUT, I'll cheer for the Diamondbacks, Cardinals, ASU, whoever, if they're playing a team from Wisconsin.  He agreed that that would be fine since I am from AZ and should probably have a little bit of home town pride.  I still can't buy myself a Brewer t-shirt... it just feels wrong.

TGIF Bitchez

Thank God it's Friday.  It's been another horrible week at work and all I want to do is lounge by the pool drinking beer.  I'm always up for a game of beer pong or pool pong... so consider that my exercise!

Please excuse the thumbprint in the top right hand corner.
My husband is still learning how to take photos and hold a beer!

Chloe loves the water.  She was exhausted after her 2 hour swim.

P.S. If you didn't notice already, I'm wearing a Diamondbacks hat in the pool.  Starting Monday the Diamondbacks play the Brewers.  It's gonna be an exhausting week.
