Thursday 13- iPod Shuffle

Today for my Thursday 13 I thought I would do another random shuffle of my iPod (okay, it's actually the music app on my iPhone, but whatever!) :) Yes, I realize that I have random music on my playlist! :)

(Rangers fans might recognize this as one of Josh Hamilton's walk up songs!) :)

(I liked this video of a little kid lip syncing to this song!) :)

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm loving...

Life. I'm sad that I've been so busy that I've fallen behind on my blog updating and blog posts reading, but I can't honestly say I'm sad that I've been too busy to blog because I've been out doing things. Don't get me wrong, I love all of you and I miss reading your posts. I promise to catch up one of these days! Don't give up on me!!

I thought I would post some pictures of what I've been up to while I've been M.I.A. from the blogging world.
A friend of mine got me a blu-ray player for my birthday (no, I didn't have one before that, I'm behind on technology). This player allows you to stream Netflix, HuluPlus, YouTube and Pandora radio on your TV. I may never leave my room again! :)
My friends Robert and Brandon came over Friday to go to dinner and help me hook up the blu-ray player to my internet router. Brandon also bought me my first blu-rays, To Kill A Mockingbird and West Side Story!
Saturday I went to the Rangers game with some friends. Casting Crowns held a concert before the game- they are awesome!
Me and the lovely Laura. I know, we are adorable in our matching caps.
Trish also looks adorable in her Rangers cap!
Our view of the stage.
Ran into my friend Matt at the game.
Me and the BFF Brandy. Her birthday was a few days before mine, we always try and go to a game around our birthdays. The Rangers were out of town on our actual birthdays, so we had to wait until they got back.
View from our seats.
Texas Legends race- Sam Houston won.
Brandy had to leave after the 6th inning, so I moved over to sit by Trish and Laura in the new center field seats.
The new seats are also right by the Rangers bullpen.
During the 10th we moved a little closer to sit with friends of Trish. Sadly my phone died in the top of the 13th so I missed getting a picture of Josh Hamilton's walk off home run in the bottom of the 13th.
I had lunch with a friend on Sunday at this Italian place in Fort Worth called Patrizio. I had never been there before- it was really good!! I highly recommend it!
I know you won't believe it, but I was back at the Ballpark on Monday. :) I sat in the Lexus Club level, they were great seats! I got the tickets thanks to my Twitter addiction and :)
Boomstick. A Nelson Cruz home run!
Enjoying a Rangers win!
I was able to meet my Twitter friend Crystal after the game! Love meeting my Twitter peeps!
Last night I was SO FORTUNATE to have tickets to see Dick Van Dyke and The Vantastix. I have now seen him act, sing, and dance live and in person. As you know, he's my FAVORITE actor!
A view from our seats.
Me and my buddy Aaron before the show
Yes, I was giddy. I know, I'm a nerd.
Sadly I couldn't get pictures during the show, but here is a video I found on YouTube of the group singing the theme song to The Dick Van Dyke Show (yes, the intro song had words, they just weren't sung on the show). :)

I really enjoyed the concert, I even bought their CD!! :)

Thanks for sticking with my long recap. Hoping to be back to my usual updating/reading soon!

Happy Memorial Day!

I just wanted to take a minute to thank all the men and women who have served and who are currently serving our country. I'm very proud of both of my grandfathers who fought in World War II. I miss them dearly!

My granddaddy who served in the Army.

My grandpa who served in the Coast Guard.

What I'm Loving Wednesday- Birthday edition!

I'm loving..
That for the first time in almost A WEEK I'm finally updating my blog!

I'm loving...
All the birthday messages I've received today via Twitter, Facebook, email and texts. My friends and family sure do know how to make a gal feel special. My mom even called and sang "Happy Birthday" to me. :) Thank you so much, I love you all. I'm calling this the "Year of Nolan Ryan's jersey number". If you know baseball, I just gave away my age. If you don't, I'm going to lie and tell you I'm 25. ;) Sorry I couldn't post all of my messages, that would take way too long and it would make this post insanely long. :) I have read them all and do truly appreciate them!

Picture and message my sister Mary posted on my Facebook page. And for the record, ONLY my sister can call me Boog. :)
Even local businesses on Twitter know it's my birthday! ;) They sent me a coupon for a free meal!

I'm loving...
The birthday crown my sister Mary gave me. She told me to wear it at my desk, so I have been! ;)

Just call me "Your Majesty". :)

I'm loving...
My friends. Over the past few months I've hit some "blah" moments here and there, but my friends are always there to pick me up when I'm feeling down! Love y'all!!

Dinner with my baseball homegirls
Group picture of friends at dinner
Mis Amigas!
Getting birthday pedicures with one of my besties (hers was last weekend). I wish I had a good picture of the necklace she gave me. It's beautiful (her hubby helped pick it out- he did a good job!) :)
My friend Derek took me to Texas de Brazil last night (for an early birthday dinner). It was SO GOOD. I was a little pig. Make that a big pig. I ate so much. I love any place that lets me have all I can eat steak. The lamb was also good. As was the pork. And Brazilian sausage. And chicken. I'm getting hungry thinking about it.
I'm loving...
This sign my friend Donny got me. This is a phrase that I say a lot! :)
This pillow case that my friend Paula made me
This purse that my friend Martha made me.
I'm loving...
That my boss decorated my office area today. 

My home away from home

I'm loving...
That I found an Audrey Hepburn movie I didn't own on sale at Barnes and Noble.

This is a great movie!
I'm loving...
This video of a father and daughter dancing. It's greatness!!

Hope everyone has a great day! One of these days I'm going to get back to my usual blogging updating/reading. I miss all of you!!
