Life is currently full of work, weddings, and BASEBALL in the Hilgers Home. Over the weekend we had a Customer Appreciation Day at work and it was crazy! I've been working pretty hard on it for a few months and I have to say that I am quite glad it's all over. Mom ended up being sick that day and couldn't even make it, which made it a little harder to get everything done. She and I are the only ones in the office other than our boss, and let's be honest- the boss does nothing! ;) He knows we say that by the way!!! Let me just say though that I am BLESSED!!!! My Dad showed up and helped ALL day, Dave came and was a big help even though he had a friend in town. The boss and his girlfriend showed up and actually were a big help too. All in all it was a good day- VERY hot but good.
Mike (Dave's friend) was in town and we had a great time with him. I got to try out some great recipes on him too... Apple Cinnamon Bread, Sausage Breakfast Casserole, and MY favorite new one- Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread! YUM! He and Dave had a great time, and his Mom even sent us an outdoor canopy which I am excited about cause I have been wanting one pretty badly!
We have a wedding the next 3 weekends. My cousin's is this Saturday, next Saturday is our good friend's sister, and the week after is my younger sister's friend. Brittany's this weekend is going to be a difficult one for our family. Her Dad passed away a few years ago and she told my Mom last night that is was just hitting her that he wouldn't be there to walk her down the aisle. She is also having a slideshow right before she walks down of just her and her dad... that's going to be pretty hard for the whole family. Please pray for us this weekend if you think of it.
On a happier note... Baseball is SO MUCH FUN!!!! We had a doubleheader last night and it was brutally hot and humid. Dave called and had me bring a cooler of water for the guys and I'm so glad I did cause they were exhausted after just a few minutes of playing! I had a great opportunity to sit and talk with some of the parents more and it was wonderful. Terry is such a sweetheart and she brings her new puppy Jacey to all the games so we have a perfect outlet to talk and get to know each other. Dogs are great for breaking the ice!
The boys are doing REALLY well in the games. We have only been able to have 7 games so far, but we've only lost 2! Last night we lost the 1st game and won the 2nd so we ended on a good note. Dave is having so much fun getting to know these guys and spending time with them. Apparently I'm even quite popular with them too which is hilarious! One of the kids keeps telling the rest of the team that he and I are seeing each other behind Coach's back, and last night another kept calling me his girlfriend. Of course I jokingly play along because it's funny to see their reactions and Dave thinks it's pretty funny too. I think it's just their way of 'accepting me' into their lives, or a least I HOPE that's what it is!!!!
Well work is slow today, but I guess I need to get back to it anyway. Hope everyone is doing well!!!
