Even though baseball consumes a big part of our lives, I just can't help but LOVE the sport even more. I love EVERYTHING about it, whether it involves me playing , or watching anyone of my family members play, I just can't seem to get enough. I really enjoy watching my own son play ball though. He's an awesome little ball player!! In fact R and I always think about what it's going to be like when he actually gets to play HS baseball. It only gets better!~

Not Me Monday

It is a new week, and time for another Not Me! Monday, where I confess to the stupid-mommy blunders I did not commit last week. Please remember to keep the creator of this carnival, MckMama, and her baby Stellan in your prayers this week.

It was NOT me who went to lunch with my hubby Friday after he took the day off from work to rest. We did not enjoy ourselves either.
It was NOT me who left the house Saturday morning before the sun rise.
It was NOT me that took everyone out Saturday morning in the cold, windy weather to a baseball tournament. It was not cold at all. It was only in the 30's and the wind was blowing HARD!
It was NOT me who watched Fireproof this weekend and cried like a baby. Nope not me.
It was NOT me that had to miss church due to my sons baseball tourney. Who would do such thing.
It was NOT me that took a ton of pictures at the tourney yesterday after the won the championship!!! And I was not proud of them either, being that they played up at this tournament. (9Uboys) that means all these boys were 9 and up.
I did NOT go on a motorcycle ride with my husband yesterday evening and I did not enjoy it either. I also didn't enjoy wearing his helmet and jacket. He also didn't hold my hand at one moment during the ride. Who does that.

Thank you so much Mesa! I love the purses and the cookies were delish!!!! You really need to start your own cookie shop.

Not Me Monday!

Well I am back for more Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
* I did not have a great week with my family back home. And it was not fun either.
* San Antonio is not a good place to take your family on spring break. The food on the River Walk was horrible too!!! Trust me you would not like it there either.
* I also didn't enjoy the warm South Texas weather all week long...
* Went to a HS baseball game Tuesday evening to see our nephew and he did not hit 2 RBI's that night. The Stacy clan was also not cheering for him!
* We didn't eat at our favorite restaurant 2 days in a roll this past week. It wasn't that great at all!!
* I didn't do any shopping at the River Center Mall while in SA Thursday. What could I possibly need??
* I didn't take over 500 photos of my family on Spring break . Nope not me. Why would I do such thing.

This picture was taken by my sister in law yesterday at Landa Park in New Braunfuls, Tx. We enjoyed the warm Texas sun.

And the best part is, is that you can start whenever you jump in. For me, this will be my 4th week!

Spring is here!
I will be out of town all next week for spring break vacation. I know for sure that I will not be near a computer. So with that being said. I will not be able to blog or post pics. I will try to at least check my email. That I know I can do.

I'm going to try to relax and visit with family and enjoy the warm south Texas weather. I hear it's been a little cool, but no where near what we have had the past few days here in the DFW area. ( I guess mother nature needed to water the wild flowers)

I am taking my camera along on our vacation (as usual) so I will have a lot to post when I get back to town.

Have a great weekend my blogging sisters!!!

I'm participating in a year long challenge, created by Carin. The goal is to be in one picture a week, for 52 weeks. Since us moms are always behind the camera, this gives us a chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. Fun challenge, right? You can join too! Carin has added a Mr. Linky on Thursdays so that we can check out each others pictures.

This is my family at Sea World San Antonio last yr during our spring break. It's that time again! Tomorrow the kids have half day and we are headed back to SA, not only to vacation but to see our family. Happy Spring everyone!!!!

Trash to Treasure

My husband comes home one day and says "Honey, go look in the back of my truck". I was so excited because I know my husband, he never thinks to pick up something on the side of the road much less a dumpster. If you knew my husband you would just know that's just not him. Well, he did and I am so happy that he did. He found these 2 lockers in the dumpster where he works. I'm just sad there wasn't more. I could have used another set.
We unloaded them and have been working on them since day 1. 2 weeks later and we have finally finished our project. There was a lot of sanding, painting, oiling and fixing a few minor dents.
This past Sunday my hubby hung them up so that the kids could start using them. The kids are so excited they finally get to use their lockers..... AND because they have lockers at home.
Here are some before and after pictures I promised.
(next time I will show you what I found on the side of the road in the trash *SIGH*)

My weekend

Darren Woodson (former Dallas Cowboy) and his wife
My son playing catcher - batter, Darren Woodson's son (can you see the ball)
It's funny to see him take the helmet off as fast as he can when the ball is hit adn there are runners on base

My son hitting
Made it to 2nd base - I love the little hand in the air for a time out so that he could get up.

Going home...
OK, so because I have time on my hands at the moment or is it because my little one is napping *SIGH*. I decided to blog again for the 3rd time today - HEY, I'm on a roll!!!

I promise I won't blog again until tomorrow.

I just loaded my pictures from this weekend (my son's bb tourney in Flower Mound) and they were too awesome not to share.

Ooooh...before I forget, the 2nd team we played Saturday was a really GOOD team out of Dallas. And not to mention, a former Dallas Cowboys player, Darren Woodson, son played on the team. We did really well against them but unfortunately we lost. They had fun and they played their little hearts out. Everyone on that team towered over our boys by 2 inches, at least. One was as tall as my 10 yr old. These little guys are age 7-8.

Check it out for yourself. Have a great day!
