Hit bull, win steak.

If you're from Durham, live in Durham, or have ever been to a Durham Bulls baseball game, you'll know what the above title means and how much fun you can have at a Durham Bulls game!

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the movie "Bull Durham" and MSNBC picked up a great story about how, thanks to the movie, the Durham Bulls has grown from a single-A, smalltown team, to a now triple-A team that last year set a franchise record by attracting 520,952 fans to their 13-year-old, 10,000-seat stadium.

We love to take our son to the ballgame and he loves to see the smoke sprawl from the ears of the bull when the home team hits a home-run. Here's a pic from a game we went to last year - he loves the food there (and so does his mommie!)

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the movie "Bull Durham", Kevin Costner will be at the ballpark this July 4th, with his band Modern West and a fireworks show. Sounds like a great treat if you're looking for something to do for the fourth in Durham, Chapel Hill, Roxboro or triangle area! You can buy tickets online here.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
