I went to my first Minnesota Twins Game yesterday at Target Field. It was just as beautiful as everyone had said. I even made sure to have a cold beer and hot dog just to make the experience as authentic as possible. I had a blast playing with the kids, hanging out with Garrett and our family friend, (and Eva's Godfather) Luke-- but seriously you guys- Baseball is not my thing. I clapped when the crowd clapped-- but sheesh. I didn't even realize we had lost/thought they were winning. HA! Don't hate. In college, before I was pregnant with Eva, I lived in a house with 5 other people. They would pile in 20 of our friends to watch baseball around our big screen-- and despite how much I enjoyed the company of everyone who hung out, I never stuck around because BASEBALL IS BORING. There, I said it. I'd definitely go to another Twins game sometime, for the experience-- but basically, it doesn't hold a candle to Vikings Football (win or lose!) or MN Wild Hockey.
Anyway, things have been crazy around here ya'll.
I had a scare last week!
(Not that kind of scare)-- Garrett was offered a job in Mankato and we were so close to moving back there (toured a house to rent-close) that it seemed inevitable we'd have to move back. What's so bad about Mankato, you ask? Nothing. If you are 21 years old (or have the mindset of a 21 year old) and are one of two people:
|get this t-shirt here|
1- A self-proclaimed hipster who bikes around town with their iPod ear-buds in, listening to some obscure band whom they discovered even before they were an official band, drinking import beer, and pretending they are smarter than the average population because their top 3 favorite TV shows are from British Television.
|kind of the same scenario|
2- An alcoholic who moved to the town freshman year of college, but couldn't make it to class on time so they were put on suspension and found a job delivering pizza for Dominoes and slingin' some P-O-T on the side. This unfortunate event happened 9 years ago and he still hasn't returned to finish his Health and P.E. degree-- but guess what?! They're getting older but the girls they're sleeping with stay the same age! What's not to love?
Okay, okay. I get it. Not everyone in Mankato is like that. And, unlike New Ulm, they have a mall and THREE FRO-YO places (we don't have even ONE fro-yo place.)-- but nothing about that town entices me whatsoever. Luckily, we decided to "X" out that idea. (Disaster Averted!) But, that doesn't mean we might not still be moving....
Can't tell you about that yet. ;)
