Three surprise packages from my SP14 spoiler!

All books off of my amazon wish list! How awesome!
After getting these three packages I noticed just how eclectic my interests are. I go from horse training to fast and healthy cooking to dog agility.

Thanks for the awesome picks off of my wish list SP14 spoiler!!!

Mount Desert Island Maine

I went to a conference at MDIBL last week. It's so beautiful up there! I'd like to go back just to play tourist next time in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park! When I wasn't in the conference I had a little time to get to the ocean and take these pics. One morning I also took a nice long walk (sans camera, I know, bad blogger yadda yadda). Here's a few shots of the view at MDIBL. I can't imagine how scientists there actually get any work done. Next time I'll have to take a pic of the labs. They're literally on the waterfront.
Here's a shot of me on on the dock.
I thought the coastline was beautiful.
The clouds were so neat in this shot!Coming Up Next: A surprise SP14 package!!!
Also, after this weekend I'll have a few Kenny sightings to post. It's that time of year again, YAY for Kenny weekend!!!

Saucy Spring Swap Package

This is the first time I have participated in this swap on Ravelry and it was a ton of fun! I can't wait to try all of the sauces!

In my loaded box I got:
2 skeins of Tofutsies, 4 hot sauces (one being Siracha, my current favorite), 3 mustards, 2 jars of peppers (Jalapenos are my favorite add in's), an aromatherapy spa kit, a cute cherry paperclip, aromatic tea, and a package of spicy sour prunes.
Here's a close-up of the saucesHere's a close-up of all of the other goodies!
What an awesome package! I can't wait to get trying everything! I haven't tried any of the sauces that I received, besides the Siracha which I know that I love already, so it will be fun! I also haven't worked with Tofutsies yet! Thanks for such a great package sunmoon!

DishRag Tag, this year it's called Son of Dishrag Tag, sign-ups are going on NOW! I realized today that I hadn't signed up yet, and I saw that the sign-ups were over half full yesterday! If your interested, run over and sign up now! It's a TON of fun. I participated in it's first time through two years ago, and I was a captain last year. It's a blast.

Love me, Ortiz Me?

I came upon this shirt and it fit today's post PERFECTLY...

For all of you that are Sox fans... here's some pic's from last Saturday's game v.s. the Orioles. We won, 7-2. I had awesome seats. A friend of mine got home plate pavilion seats from work and I was lucky enough to get invited. We sat in bar stools in front of a little table, and had a waiter. It was awesome! You can't complain when your waiter is bringing you your beer and fenway frank to your table! We also loved that we could get up and cheer on Papi during his homer without shuffling around everything in our laps! It was awesome. Great game!!! Nothing like being at Fenway...
Lester pitched
Final was actually 7-2... I just loved this scoreboard shot

Obligatory Lowell shot...
After the game...
