Baby BBQ

Last night Little Lady chowder down on the exact same thing the hubby and I ate - pulled pork BBQ and garlic-lemon green beans. It's pretty awesome to have the girl eating food just like us. I cannot believe she is 8 months old!

She also got a taste last night of how crazy a spots fanatic her mama is. I may have caused her to burst into tears after I got so excited over Dempsey's goal in the first minute of the World Cup game last night {oops}. 

She better toughen up before college football and basketball season :)

World Cup Thoughts

As a former competitive soccer player I am now in my happy place as the World Cup  is on and I'm getting to watch 3-4 quality matches every day. Pure heaven. Thoughts so far...

Why did Puma design skin tight tops? I mean whoa...muscle definition and more. These kits are a little too right for my taste. This isn't swimming. 

The Netherlands. Need I say more? What a demolishing and vicious performance against Spain. 

Controversial calls abound. Come on refs.     

So many exciting goals along with a decent amount of PKs and stoppage time goals. And it's only day 4 of competition. 

Robin van Persie may have had one of the most awesome diving headers I've seen to equalize against Spain. 

It will be interesting to see the US-Ghana match tomorrow night. It's pretty much do or die for the US. I don't think we advance out of group stage without a win. A draw still leaves hope, but not much.

My husband says this World Cup will be a success for the US if they score three goals, win or lose. I'm just hoping we take Ghana. 

Of course keeping Little Lady entertained while Mama watches soccer is quite a feat. Even more crazy is that by the next Workd Cup she could be playing youth soccer. Gulp. 

So the real question is...who do you got in the end?

Pumping in Public

Today I decided not to let breastfeeding get in the way of spending time with family doing something we really enjoy...golfing. A few weeks ago I took a big step and breastfed Little Lady at the park at birthday party {under a cover of course}. Today was a much bolder move. I pumped on the golf course in a golf cart. 

Yup. That's me with my cover on. Pale as can be and pumping instead of teeing off on the 16th hole. It was actually quite a success. The golf cart was already equipped with a cooler and ice making milk storage easy. 

Anyone else pumped in some unusual public settings?
