Sweet Caroline

Do you know this song? It has been stuck in my head since we woke up yesterday. Maybe it's because we have been visiting in South Carolina, maybe it's because I miss hearing the way the drunk people sing it at a piano bar. I can't tell you the last time I actually heard this song. Probably when I was the "drunk people" singing it at a piano bar - I swear, I have never heard this on the radio, and then as we are pulling into Birmingham last night from our trip - It's on the shuffle station on the satellite radio - How bizarre?

Our trip was great, Munchkin was such a trooper. We met our friends from Virginia for the Auburn game and took the kido's to their first Auburn game. They did fantastic, slept through most of it. I think all of the people around us wanted to eat them up, they were so cute dressed in their AU gear... What a game, heart attack anyone? Can't handle too much more of that. They really need to get it together...

Highlights from the trip:

Munchkin and Lil' Pimp shared their first kiss at the AU game.
Still don't know what a "she-crab" is.
Hubby and I lost in a game of Spades - it was a come from very far behind win for "Agent B. and BFF"
Hate it when Hubby goes a hundred low - too much pressure on me!! (this is how we lost the game)
Alligators are very scary and lived in the water behind our condo in Charleston - babies could have been eaten!
Lil' Pimp started walking this weekend! So exciting...
BFF spat on me (sorry, this is an inside joke. Definitely a highlight)
Got some quality "Mommy Time" with BFF by the pool, while Hubby and Agent B. sat with babies.
Munchkin still hates the pool.

Anyway, I could write a separate post on each of these highlights. A great time was had by all. Must give this trip 2 thumbs up..

Ah, now this brings back memories. They play Sweet Caroline during the 7th inning stretch at the Brooklyn Cyclones (single A Mets) games here. I'm singing it right now, wanting to get out of my seat, wave my hands in the air and dance with Sandy the Seagull!! Touching Me, Touching You ... sorry, I'll stop there! Reminds me of summer and licking my fingers of messy, disgusting and fattening nachos after which my friends force me onto the Cyclone. By the way, not a good combination! And the blog is great! LOVE IT! You are too funny! Happy "1" to little Elizabeth! I remember when I got the call at my office last year. I almost cried myself! Enjoy! And as Amy said, keep bloggin'!
