Baseball Opening Day

It's my favorite day of the year!
That's only a slight exaggeration.

I've been awaiting this day for 5 months.  It never comes soon enough.

I got my app a couple weeks ago.  This is my third year using this app and I love it.  I love being able to listen to every game from my phone and getting all the stats and articles in one place.  This year it is $19.99 (the price went up this year).  The only app I've ever paid for is this one every year.  But sometimes you can just tell it's worth it.
You bet I'll be listening tonight!!!!

Many, many developments occurred during spring training this year that I enjoyed following.  Here are a few of my favorites (yes, there were many ups and downs, as per usual for spring training... and the entire season):
*Allen Craig was signed for 5 year contract.  I was just excited because I like the guy.  Dad helped me realize it's a pretty big deal for such a young player get signed for this kind-of contract.
Hey, Wainwright got one too!
*Garcia did pretty well!
*The battle for second was a battle!
*I'm excited for another year with Matheny.
*typical injuries.  Freese will start the season on the DL.
*solidifying pitching rotation
yes, i've probs shared this before.
dad gave it to me years ago and it's always hung wherever i've lived since.
i want it framed.
Let's get this season started!  Go Cards!

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.
