Yeah, I know.  I seem to only talk about the marathon and baseball right now.  But it's exciting.
If you missed last night's Cardinals game, I'm sorry.  It was epic.  EPIC!  (I do not overuse that word.)
We were down 6-0 in the 3rd.  Yes, you read that right, SIX!  We battled back and in the ninth inning we scored 4 to win 9-7!  Oh my gosh.  
#1 They clearly like to give me a heart attack.
#2 So exciting!
#3 This morning I had to check if it was real.

Said Motte: "They don't give up. They go out there and battle every single pitch until the last pitch is made. And they proved that again tonight."
Motte, who debuted with St. Louis in 2008, really experienced it for the first time during the Cards' epic run last season. But rookies like Joe Kelly, who threw 1 2/3 valuable innings of scoreless ball to keep the game within reach, had never really lived it.
Until Friday.
"I got here as a rookie this year, and I've never felt so welcome and as part of a team as we have here," Kelly said. "We're so close-knit and nobody ever quits. We were down six runs and Chris Carpenter's saying, 'We're going to win this ballgame.' [Manager Mike Matheny's] going, 'We're going to win this ballgame. Just believe.' We have the talent. Of course we have the talent." (via)

Sunday's another big game in San Fran!!!!!! 

If this isn't proof to watch the whole game, I don't know what is!

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…


I said when I turned 30 in January I was going to start using moisturizer.  Now, 6 months later, I can say I've kind of achieved the goal, but not really...

I have a moisturizer from several years ago, which I received as a Christmas gift.  I used it off and on over the years, mostly off.  I've probably used it more this year than ever before, granted the bar was very low.

I don't like it though.  I don't like the smell or really how it feels either.

Then I heard True Botanicals released a lower-priced Basics collection designed for younger skin, technically for people in their 20s, but whatever.  I decided to try their hydrating oil (the smallest one) to see if I am able to be consistent with use.

First impression: I'm still figuring out how much to use, but I love the smell.
