I didn't really want to go and sit through a bunch of basketball games, but I wanted to support Tanner and he had first choice since it was his birthday weekend. So we went, and I am so glad we did!
It was a much needed vacation for us. Our house is still up in the air, we are living out of our suitcases and it was a good time to get away!
|Headed to Vegas!|
I am becoming quite the Sports Wife! I really do enjoy the games. Almost too much sometimes! We get the high-high in exchange for some low-lows. Tanner reminds me that is why we love sports! If you know the recent events of BYU Basketball (one of the top players expelled from playing), you will know they lost pretty bad one of their last games. I was literally crying during the game! I wanted them to win sooo badly.
I have to remind myself in games too that there is nothing I can do to make them win or loose. I will try to imagine them winning, see them as making more points, the basket getting bigger, send them love and joy, do visualizations. But this just stresses me out because if they are loosing then I need to do more...but what?, I ask myself. Then I remember, I am a fan, they are the players, it's up to them. Haha, it's kind of silly. But I enjoy the game better when I just relax and watch!
I get so involved in the game that I have to remind myself, win or loose, does it really effect my life overall? No. I'm okay. Everything will be okay.
I am grateful for sports in our life. I didn't watch sports much growing up, just at high school. But the Mr. has instilled in me or rather, brought out my sports side. I think it is good to be passionate about something that is just fun. It's a good way to experience a lot of emotion about something that doesn't really matter. For example, Tanner is a very cool-headed Type 3 guy. He doesn't react in yelling or frustration at me or anyone else because he does that at sports games. I didn't know he could get mad until we went to a game together and the ref made a bad call. I always say, I would rather have him yell at the TV than at me and my kids. Not that it would be either or, but it's a healthy channel for those emotions.
Anyways, those are some thoughts about sports...back to our vacation in Vegas.
I did some great shopping! At H&M and Ann Taylor Loft - Factory Store - tons of Type 2 clothes! Love it!
And we made a stop (or 2) at Max Brenner Chocolate. There are only 2 locations: NY and Vegas. If you love chocolate it is a must! Get the Eighties Milkshake or the Banana Split Waffles. YUMMMO!
We went to Cirque du Soleil Elvis. It was great. I have been to quite a few Cirque du Soleil and this was the most unique - singing, dancing, speaking, story line - not a lot of crazy acrobatics, but very entertaining and highly recommended. KA is one full of amazing acrobatics if that's your style.
The weather was fab-u-lous! 75-80 degrees and SUN! I am hoping to have brought some home with us!
