For Father's Day and our dad's birthday this year, my sisters and
I got our family tickets to a Mets game. We used to go all the time, but as we all got older it became harder to go as a family. So we decided that we were going again this year.

We had so much fun! I haven't been to City Field yet and it is awesome. I really hope that we get to go again, next year.

Here are some pictures from our outing. :-)

City Field is so pretty - my sisters and I

This is my future husband David Wright... He is Mr. Wright :-)

Everyone has a type right? Well I am not sure what my type is. I like a lot of things about a lot of different guys. This is a good thing and a bad thing. But I sure know what kind of males I can attract.

1. I attract gay men. I have been proposed too by 3 gay men in the last year. Don't get me wrong I feel really loved that they want to spend the rest of their life with me, but I don't want to be married to someone who really wants to be with another guy. Its not like these guys didn't know they were gay, because they were all openly gay. One of them even went so far as to ask my father for permission. Of course my father gave us his blessing. SUPER. Thanks dad.

2. I attract teenage autistic kids. This is quite the talent let me tell you! I can get a teenage autistic kid to fall in love with me like that (pretend I snapped my fingers). They have asked for my phone number, tried to look up my skirt, they wanted to cuff me so they could love me, they want to hang on me, they play with my hair, and they want to hold my hand. I am sure that you are all thinking that I am just making this up and that they do this to a lot of people at the school. But I assure you, they don't. I am pretty sure that is why I am not working with the high schoolers again this year, they realized that I got hit on at least once a day by the boys. hahaha They make me feel really loved, but I am pretty sure nothing can come of all this flirting. hahahaha SUPER!

3. Crazy/Emotionally unavailable/ Odd/Weird - Do I really need to explain these people? I can find them really easily. They do come along with really great stories, but they just end up giving me a headache. I need to find a way to not attract these guys. Maybe I can find some spray, repellant, perfume, SOMETHING to keep them away!

4. Little boys under the age of 4/5. I am not sure how I pull this one off, but they love me. I guess I am just that much fun! I have been many a little boys first crush. It is really very cute, but again not helpful in life!

It is really a shame that these are the types of males I attract. None of them are going to help me out in life. I need to figure out a way to attract males my age, that are "normal", and that don't want to be with other males. Is that really too much to ask for?? :sigh:

Plan B

Life is All About How You Handle Plan B.

Plan A is always my first choice. You know, the one where everything works out to be happily ever-after. But more often than not, I find myself dealing with the upside - down, inside - out version, where nothing goes as it should. It's at this point that the real test of my character comes in... do I sink, or do I swim? Do I wallow in self-pity and play the victim or simply shift gears and make the best of the situation? The choice is all mine... life is all about how you handle Plan B.

I am sure this happens to everyone. You plan your life out, and that is the way you think it is all going to work out. I was going to go to college, meet the guy of my dreams, we were going to have an amazing relationship. After college I was going to get a great teaching job, and I was going to marry my boyfriend from college. Then a couple of years later we would start our wonderful family. No doubt that by the time I was going to be 29 I would have already had 2-3 kids.

That was Plan A.

I went to college (check). I did not meet the guy of my dreams. I did make some of the most amazing friends in the world. But I didn't meet the man I was going to marry. When I graduated college I wasn't sure that teaching was for me. So I got a corporate world job. I HATED THE JOB!! It has taken me a while to find a job that I love, but I did. I am going to be 29 in December, and I am still single, and obviously no kids.

I am on to Plan B, C, D and E.

Don't get me wrong, I love my life. I am enjoying myself immensely! I have wonderful friends that help me get through everything, and a very supportive family. Its just not where I thought I would be. I am sure I will meet the man of my dreams at some point, and it will have been worth the wait!

So for now I will just stick with Plan B, C, D, E, F, G....

More Boys I Meet...

I am not sure why this happens. I am not sure how I became so lucky in life. I am not sure if I have a sign over my head, or if I send off a certain sent, but I am really good at attracting crazy guys!

I am not talking about the kind of guys that just like to go out and act wild and crazy. I am not talking about the guys that get crazy over sports even. I am talking the kind of crazy where they send you a text message one night - after only meeting you TWO times, and talking occasionally- stating the fact that they are 'just texting to say I love you'. SUPER! I mean I know I am fabulous and all, but I am not sure you know me well enough to love me. It took me awhile to figure out how to respond to that one.

Then there was the guy that I went out with on one date. We went bowling - his choice. We get there and he starts to complain that he has to wear the bowling shoes. I mean come on now, we are bowling - you know you have to wear the ugly shoes! Fine, we get the shoes and start bowling. He then starts complaining that he is a terrible bowler. I had to keep telling him that if he was a terrible bowler then I had to be an awful bowler - because he was beating me - by a lot!! After a very long hour and a half of bowling - and him complaining - I decide that it is time to end this horrible date. I offer to pay, he tells me not to worry about it. I thank him and after a VERY awkward good-bye, leave. I am telling my friend the next day about the bad date and I get a text message from this guy telling me how he had an amazing time and he wants to get together again. He was obviously on a different date then I was! So I think of how to tell this guy, in the nicest way possible, that he is a nice guy but I don't think there was a connection. I wish him luck in finding the girl for him, and thank him again for the date the night before. It took him a while to understand what I was telling him. Once he understood what I was saying, he went off on how stupid girls are and this is why he doesn't like to date. He then sent me a text stating, ' I wish I never met you. I would be $50 richer'. Classy. And he wonders why he is still single...

See I attract the crazy ones! These are just 2 of my many amusing stories.

Carrie Underwood has a song called 'More Boys I Meet' - it really reminds me of my life! Part of the song goes like this:
"It's not like I'm not trying
'Cause I'll give anyone a shot once
And I close my eyes
And I kiss that frog
Each time finding
The more boys I meet the more I love me dog"

The more crazies I meet - the more I really do love my dog!!

Here is the video of the song if you would like to hear the whole song. It really is a good song.

One of my favorite things...

This is the post that I wrote for Mandy's blog... enjoy!

When Mandy asked if anyone would be willing to write a post for her blog while she was on vacation, I decided it would be something fun to do. I thought for awhile I could write about. I don't have kids, I'm not married, and I am single. So that rules out writing about kids, husbands or boyfriends. I thought about telling you stories about some of the crazy men I have gone out with, but I think they would be better if you knew more about me.

So I thought some more about what I could write about. I finally came up with the PERFECT topic. I decided to talk about one of my favorite things in the world. Something I could never live without. Something that I could never live without. Something that I turn to no matter what mood I am in. Something that makes me SO HAPPY.


I love chocolate. I love the way it smells when you open the wrapper. I love the way it melts in your mouth when you take a bite out of it. I love how when I am in a bad mood I can get a piece of chocolate and for the couple of minutes it takes me to eat the chocolate, everything is ok.

There is one thing that I don't like about chocolate. I don't like that when I eat the chocolate, I know that it is going to go directly to my stomach. But I forgive the chocolate for what it does to me. I think the pros out way the cons.

This weekend I went to heaven. I went to Hershey Park. The world of chocolate. I have to admit the park itself wasn't all that exciting. The lines were long and took forever to move. It was fun to walk around and see all the park has to offer, but I didn't enjoy the long lines. But Hershey's Chocolate World was fabulous!

There I got to create my own chocolate bar. If you were wondering, mine was milk chocolate with raspberry, cookie dough and chocolate chips in it. Oh and sprinkles on top! We took a tour of how Hershey's make their chocolate. I didn't realize how much work it was to make chocolate bars! And then we went to the "store". They had clothing, candles (that smelt like chocolate), chap stick (that also smelt like different candies), magnets and much more. Then w moved on to the chocolate section. There you could buy any candy that Hershey makes. The had HUGE boxes of chocolate!! They even had a 5 pound bar of chocolate. It took all that I had to not buy it. But I did buy a 1 pound bar of chocolate. How could I not - it was only $5!! It was a deal!

I did eat a lot of chocolate that day. But I felt as if I had too. I was in Hershey PA after all!! For me, Hershey could be the happiest place on earth! Well it might be a tie with the shoe department... but that is another blog for another day.

I found this quote on reasons to eat chocolate and thought I would share it. Incase you needed more reasons why it is TOTALLY ok to eat chocolate whenever you want.

Reasons to Eat Chocolate

Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of chocolate. If it's not chocolate, it's not breakfast. The calories of chocolate are reduced to zero if NO one sees you eat it. Chocolate can't solve all your problems, but it sure makes you feel better about them. The taste of rice cakes significantly improves when dipped in rich, dark, chocolate. Forget about love... it's a lot more fun to fall in chocolate. Friends are the chocolate chips of life. No one's last words were ever "I'd wish I'd eaten less CHOCOLATE". And now they say chocolate is good for us. So there you go... it's a green light, a legitimate excuse from God to eat all the chocolate you want.
-- Suzy Toronto

Here we go again!

I have decided that it is time to once again blog. I was writing a post for a friend that was going on vacation and while thinking about what I could write about realized I have some funny stories to share with everyone. So lets see if I can really do it this time!
