I made the trek to Dallas on December 29 to see the Chicago Blackhawks take on the Dallas Stars. Even though I am born and bred in Texas, I am a diehard Blackhawks fan. Read this post and this post if you don't believe me. Anyway, so I went to Big D with a friend and this was her first hockey game ever. Our seats were in row 7 (I like to get close to the action) and we had another Blackhawks fan beside us and behind us. Then this, I can't refer to her as anything but this, BITCH showed up and sat next to me. She was a diehard Stars fan and any time the Stars scored she screamed so loud and clapped so hard practically in my ear. So I returned the favor when the Blackhawks scored and proceeded to give me the evil eye the rest of the night even after she made her boyfriend change seats with her.
As you can tell from the pics, my favorite hockey player ever is Patrick Sharp. He is not only good but he is HOT! I pray he doesn't get traded but if he does, I'll root for him wherever he goes. Still be a Hawks fan but will always remain a Sharpie fan.
I'd much rather see a game in Chicago just because of the excitement from the fans, but I will continue to go see them whenever they go to Dallas.
We had our annual family get-together on Christmas Eve. A lot of the cousins, aunts and uncles were there. This is really the only time I get to see a lot of them so it is a nice thing to do every year. The food was good as usual. My dad made the menudo and my Aunt Lola made the tamales. Everyone brought dessert to share. We also all prayed the rosary which is another tradition. During the rosary, Jacob (9 years old) told me "This isn't much of a party!"
Happy 2010 everyone. I don't do resolutions because I NEVER stick to them so this year I made some goals.
Eat healthier and stick to Weight Watchers (both go hand in hand).
Be more patient...with the kids, with my mom, drivers (oh please let those slowpoke and bat outta hell drivers have made goals to be better drivers).
Read Dave Ramsey's book and actually do what it says. And let the kids know I am on a financial diet so this gravy train has dried up.
Help the Universe out in getting me a man who loves me (and is a good kisser oh and generous if you know what I mean). I've put the traits I want in a man so come on where are you?
Be a kinder person -- that includes not ragging on people (especially strangers or those on tv)....well damn I broke that one as I was watching the Dick Clark special last night. What the hell were some of those people wearing?
Ok that is all I can think of now but as I am inspired by other peoples goals I'll add to the list.
And, go by my recipe site to check out the great soup I made for lunch on New Year's Day.
