Luxury Box!!

Today I'm leaving work early and going to the Red Sox game.  YAHOO!!!  My dear, dear, friend Joanne (she reads the blog) has selflessly invited me once again to attend a Red Sox game with her.  The last time she took me, we sat in the Monster Seats for a game against the Yankees.  Seriously??!?  It was AMAZING.  The only drawback was that it was about 35 degrees at the game.  No was craziness.  However, we managed to have a great always.

This was us at that game.....freezing our 'parts' off.

Today's game is going to be the exact opposite...VERY warm and humid.  However, the weather probably won't be an issue since we have seats in a luxury box.  One of her company's major clients not only have Monster Seats, but a luxury box as well, which is where we're sitting today. I'm very excited.  I've been lucky enough to have seats in a luxury box before, and it's so nice.  Most of the time, there's a fridge stocked with beer and plenty of snacky food-type things to be had.  Hopefully, that will be the case today.
Although, if I show up and it's just a great place to sit.....I'll be just as happy to be at a game and NOT at work.

Jim and I had a great holiday weekend.  We got the entire yard and pool area all spruced up and ready for summer.  We went to a BBQ on Saturday night, hosted a teeny-tiny, impromptu BBQ at our house on Sunday night, and then attended a crazily fun BBQ on Monday afternoon.  It was NOT easy going back to work yesterday, but it was great knowing that Zachary was going to be at home with Jim, and not shipped off to daycare.
I hope you all had fantastic Memorial Day Weekends as well!!!

Tomorrow I'm working, and then I'm off on Friday.  We're heading to New Hampshire for our annual weekend away with the alumni and current members of the a cappella group I sang with at UNH.  We're very excited to FINALLY be attending with a child of our own.  It's something we've always talked about, and it's kind of unreal that it's really happening.  :-)

This is totally random, but here are a couple pictures of our yard.  I took them to show a co-worker all the work we've done since moving in, and figured I'd share them all with you.

At one time, this entire yard (side yard) was nothing but dirt, there were about 5-6 awful, dying, giant, trees on the property, and not a blade of grass in sight.  As you can see from these pictures, the grass is coming along nicely, and our newly paved (almost a year ago!) driveway makes SUCH a difference.

This is a picture of the backyard where there are HUGE improvements.  Not too long ago, there were two giant trees back there and nothing but dirt.

And of course....Scooter, enjoying the pool area
