Thursday 13: My Recent Top Tweets

Thirteen tweets that you have missed if you don't follow me on Twitter (yes, shameless plug, follow me on Twitter here.)

I didn't sleep well that night. Lol 

Some friends and I were watching the Rangers game together when the Odor/Bautista fight broke out. If you don't know what I'm talking about, watch it here on YouTube. My friend Corina and I got a little passionate during the fight. We were possibly cheering Odor on. Lol

Odor became a Rangers legend that day
This was rude...and I apologize to 5th grade girls everywhere for comparing them to how the Blue Jays fight. ;)

Rangers fans were not happy that this one Blue Jays player didn't get any sort of punishment for his part in the fight. I took my frustrations out on his hair. But come on, seriously, who thinks that looks good?

I love my friends with all my heart so it hurts me so much to know there is nothing I can do to help them when they are making poor life decisions

I'm not lying, this was the creepiest hotel I've ever stayed at. Since all Lubbock hotels were booked because of Texas Tech graduation, we had no choice but to stay. See pictures below. I'm so leaving a horrible review on Yelp. 
We discovered the next morning that there was blood on the lampshade. BLOOD!
I don't even want to know how it got there
My sister's room was horrible. She told them it hadn't been cleaned and the front office assured her it had and got a little snippy with her. She noticed this behind the door. They just swept the dirt into a line and LEFT IT THERE.

Yes, I know, my bangs. And eyebrows. Don't even mention them.

My bestie sent out this tweet on my birthday. Love him so much. Or maybe I just love his dog Dobby. I'm kidding of course, although I'm pretty sure I love Dobby more. ;) 

One of my followers sent a tweet to the Rangers telling them I wanted a hug. I didn't get a hug, but I got this tweet. 

Don't get between this girl and her taquitos

My friend Glenn took me to the Rangers game for my birthday and decided to do a live Facebook video of our drive. I'm not a fan of being on video, but I humored him. Yes, I look VERY uncomfortable in the video. And I realized I say "awesome" A LOT. Next time I won't be chewing gum when I do a video (so gross, sorry about that). It's too long to post here, but here are quick highlights. I got excited when Six Flags was open because I have a season pass and can park there for free when I go to a Rangers game (as long as the park is open). :)

He's a bullpen pitcher for the Rangers. He used to be our closer, but he hasn't been doing too well lately. Twitter freaks out whenever he's in the game and gives up a run.

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I'm loving...

All the love I received on Monday for my birthday. Thank you to everyone who sent me messages on Facebook, Twitter, or by text. You helped make my day wonderful!

I'm loving...

That I got to see a friend of mine on my birthday who I hadn't seen in over six months. We had fun at the game (despite the loss) and I ran into some other friends while I was there (birthday hugs all around!)

I'm loving...

That I was able to be at my nephews' graduations at Texas Tech last weekend. I went to Lubbock last weekend to see my nephew Jake get his undergraduate degree and to see his brother James receive his law degree. It was a VERY proud aunt moment. :) It was also a VERY long drive, but worth it!

My sweet boys at their graduation party Friday night. They loved the Rangers/Texas Tech caps that I gave them!
Graduation day! Such a proud aunt!
I'm so proud of my nephew Jake. He worked hard and completed college in three years!

Somehow this sweet little baby (okay, he was never little, he weighed 11lb, 4oz at birth) is now a law school graduate! Where does the time go? And yes, I'm rocking a NKOTB shirt. I still would wear it if I had it. :)
I love this picture of my dad and my nephew after the ceremony. James is named after my dad's father. My dad told him how proud his great-grandfather would have been to hear his name being called out

My folks have attended 37 graduations (high school and college) just between all their kids and grandkids alone. They still have more grandkids to graduate (and great-grandkids). 
I drove 733 miles in a span of 48 hours to go see my sweet boys! Totally worth it though! I had audio books and Dr Pepper to keep me company!

I'm loving...

That I got to help out my neighbor yesterday and watch her dog, Holly, for a few hours while she dealt with an emergency (everything is okay with my neighbor, by the way). :) Holly and I had fun at the dog park! 

I'm loving...

When I'm able to meet up with a Twitter peep. My Twitter friend Kari was at the game on Monday and stopped by to bring me a birthday beverage.

I'm loving...

That even though the Rangers didn't win on my birthday and I didn't get a hug from former Ranger Pudge Rodriguez, Pudge DID send me a birthday greeting on Twitter. :)

What are you loving today?

What I'm Loving Wednesday

One of these weeks I'm going to post on a day OTHER than Wednesday. I'm not even lying when I say that EVERY DAY this month I have some kind of plans. My day planner has never looked so full. Lol.

I'm loving...

That I finally went to a Rangers game with my sister Mary. We've been trying to go for about four years now and it FINALLYworked out that she was in town during baseball season WHILE the Rangers were in town. We had fun! It also worked out that it was Texas Tech night at the Ballpark that night. Both of her sons go to Texas Tech. Well, they graduate next weekend (one from undergraduate school and one from law school). We got special Rangers caps with the Texas Tech logo on them (which are being given to my loving nephews as their graduation presents). While we were sitting in the lower concourse area, I thought I saw Kliff Kingsbury (the Texas Tech football coach) walk by. Turns out, he WAS walking by (so of course, I went over to get a photo). I'm sure this shocks you! :)

Me and my sis showing off our new caps. Well, they were ours for about five minutes until my nephews texted that they wanted them. I'm such a loving aunt to give mine up. :)

Me and Coach K. Yes, I am aware that he is a beautiful man
I'm loving...

That I finally met my great-niece L. She is the daughter of my niece Naomi. She just turned one a few months and this was the first chance I've had to meet her. She was a little unsure of the strange lady who kept taking her picture, but she eventually warmed up to me. :)

I'm loving...

That I was able to celebrate with my niece Lydia at her college graduation last weekend! I"m so proud of her! I also go to see Lydia's two sisters Rebecca and Naomi AND Rebecca's son J. I haven't seen J in two years- he's getting so big! He wasn't as willing to take pictures like Miss L. Lol.

With the college graduate!

He wanted nothing to do with the picture taking. Lol
My beautiful nieces!
I'm loving...

That I got to tailgate with my Rangers Twitter family on Saturday. Words cannot describe how much these people mean to me! I love them so much!

Jim Knox from Fox Sports Southwest stopped by to film our tailgate. I don't think we were as loud and crazy as he wanted us to be. Lol
This is Randy- he's the son of my friend Bob (I just realized I DIDN'T get a picture with Bob on Saturday). Randy is awesome and a local celebrity. He was recently on the news when his classmates surprised with him tickets to a Mavericks game. He's Dirk Nowitzki's biggest fan. So if any of my sweet followers have a hook up with Dirk, let me know so I can help make Randy's dream of meeting Dirk come true!
I was able to see my friend Janie at the game!
I sat with my Rangers partners in crime at the game on Saturday. We were happy that even though our closer blew the lead in the 9th inning, the Rangers were able to win with a walk off home run in the bottom of the 10th!
I'm loving... 

The birthday gifts that my sweet Rangers Twitter family got me on Saturday. My birthday is this coming Monday, but since we were all together last weekend, they surprised me with some gifts. I got these awesome Rangers shoes pictured below, a gift card to Whataburger, and six 12-packs of Dr Pepper. They know my top three loves in life! :) They remembered on a blog post last month that I wanted these shoes so they all chipped in for it and the gift card. What's funny is that I knew we were surprising two other members of our group who have birthdays coming up and I didn't even think about them doing something for me. The thought never crossed my mind. Lol. I feel so loved!

We were all surprised! :) 
I'm loving...

That I got to meet my sweet Twitter friend Paul. We've been Twitter friends for almost six years now so it was nice to finally meet him in person! He was in town last weekend to see the Rangers/Blue Jays series. And thanks to Paul, I got a reply from Steve Avery on Facebook because he and I were tagged in the same post (I'm not even gonna pretend that I kept my cool when that happened). Lol. Yes, I'm a nerd, I've accepted that.

I'm loving...

That I've made a smoothie for breakfast every day this week. I finally took time Sunday night to divide up the fruits for each day so they were just ready to be thrown from the freezer into the blender. I love these Ziplock bags that show you how much is in it. 

I'm loving...

That I got to go to a musical performance on Sunday with some friends. I didn't even know that Theater Arlington  existed, but it was a cute little theater and the people who performed did a great job. They sang some of Frank Sinatra's biggest hits. Check out future shows on their website

I'm loving...

That I woke up to this temperature this morning. It was unusually cool for the middle of May in north Texas. :)

I'm loving...

That a friend of mine is spending my birthday evening with me next Monday at a Rangers game! I haven't seen him since DECEMBER so I'm super excited about it!

What are YOU loving today?
