I'm a baseball fan, I love the game, and I love my hometown team. When they say that Saint Louis has the best fans in baseball, they are not exaggerating. Last night the Red Birds beat the Brewers 12 runs to 6, and the representation of Cardinal fans in Milwaukee was, according to the announcers, bigger than any other they'd ever seen. Wednesday we are going to have game 1 of the world series in Saint Louis and we have home field advantage.
We had an impromptu NLCS party at our place last night. I cooked up some BBQ type foods, apple dumplings and pumpkin shaped sugar cookies. The apple dumplings exploded a little so I'm going to investigate what I did wrong and try again. A good time was had by all and the munches were so funny, they did not understand why everyone kept yelling and cheering at the TV, but they were having a good time any way.
The weekend was fun, busy and I'm actually glad it's Monday. I get to see my baby this week and I am super pumped about it. I have the ability to scan photos here at work so I'm going to try to show you the ultrasound photos on Friday, If everything goes as planned. Also, this is going to be a short week as I'm working half days on Tuesday and Thursday. I'm back on plan these days, keeping my calories right at or just under 1800, and trying, mostly successfully, to avoid the call of the nachos. Skinny latte and Yogurt (300 cals) for breakfast today and Chef Boyardee for Lunch (480 cals.) <- don't mock the chef, it has a serving of veggies and I'll be snacking on carrots and hummus today. Dinner will be something with chicken and veggies, but I'm not sure what that looks like yet, probably a casserole or stir fry.
Happy Monday Everyone, I hope your weekend was lovely!
