Back in the Saddle

Now that's my kind of ride ; )

Music to Scroll By
(of course!)

As most of you know, I've been on vacation with my husband and our parents following Travis on his last college baseball spring training trip. We started in Illinois and drove through Missouri, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas. By the time we got back home, we had driven 2400 miles and watched Travis start twice and pitch from the bullpen twice.

Towards the tail end of the trip, I came down with bronchitis and have been fighting it ever since. I couldn't get on the hotel lobby computers and blog due to parental blocks. I tried blogging from my iPod Touch, but quickly found out that I'm just not as "down with the kids" as I thought I was. I was too slow, and it tried to correct my typos with silly words and failed to correct my silly typos : )

I have a lot of Twiobservations from my trip; went to see Remember Me on opening night; watched New Moon on demand from our hotel room; and showed Pocket Edward and Mrs. P at TwiBite's avi around town, but that's for future post(s). It's great to be back. I've missed you all!

Nothing better than being at the ballpark
and hearing the National Anthem.

Starting Pitcher : )

In the bullpen warming up

Love this shot with "17" in the foreground

My parents (It was not shorts weather, but my dad was
bound and determined to wear them!)

My in-laws

My boys

P.S.: I'd be remiss if I didn't thank the following bloggy besties for keeping me in the loop via email while I was gone – Mrs. P, Twilove1, Cullenary Curser, Dangrdafne, So Twired Jen, Miss Amy Joon, TwiWeasel, and Nibbles. Thanks, girls! XXXOOO

So glad you're back! I hope you feel better soon. Rest up so you can play DML Friday night :)

Wow! This is the first time I get to see the changes to the blog. Kind of hard to read the comments. Need to contact my designer :)

@Mox - Thanks! I think some box wine and tweeting is just what the doctor ordered! LOL!

Living with Edward said...

Yay, Lisa's back! I'm glad you had a great time, but sure am sorry about the bronchitis.
:( Take plenty of vitamin C and call Dr. Cullen in the morning.

PS: Love the new edgy look to the blog!

Dangrdafne said...

And all is right in my bloggy world now... Lisa is back! I love the new look, very spiffy. Feel better soon. HUGS!!

MissAmyJoon said...

Aww, your son is so lucky to have such great support! Driving that many miles makes my back hurt, but I'm sure it was worth it! Glad to see you back on the blogging scene and love the colors of the new layout!

I’m so sorry that you were sick, but I do hope you are feeling better. It’s good to have you back and your blog is BEAUTIFUL!!
OMG, I can’t stop yelling. I’m sorry. I’ll try not yell.
Okay, that was the last time.

Twired Jen said...

So glad you have you back Lisa. And, the blog does look mighty fine! I realized my blog still says "So Twired" on your blog role. I think because it was well before I change the title just just "Twired"...granted the address is still so twired...oh whatever, I'm giving myself a headache!

Musing Bella said...

Yay!! Welcome back, Lisa!!
Glad you're feeling better and had a good trip with the fam! Can't wait to read all about it!!

Stan said...

Welcome back Lisa! What great family your son has, doing that for him. Glad you got to see him play but I'm sorry you got ill, hope you recover soon xx

Twilove1 said...

Welcome back, my dear, and I love your new design. The bloggy world hasn't been the same without you!! XOXO

Welcome back. Love your new blog format. Hope you feel better soon.

TwiWeasel said...

Hey babe! Glad to see a post from you! And the new layout is super cool! (It doesn't fit on my tiny little at work monitor, though.)

Glad I could keep you up to speed...or whatever! LOL

Hi love. Your blog is pretty pretty. Have missed you as well. Thanks for sharing your sons photos with us. You must be so proud of him. Glad to have you back in twitardia. Hope the vacay was a good break.

Stacked Like Sookie said...

Great to have you back Lisa, you've been missed. It's great that your boy can have so much family support. Love the pic of your boys, gorgeous. Hope you feel better soon and I love your new look.

Can I just say how nice it is to be back and to read everyone's comments?!! I missed all of you, too, and am so glad to be back blogging. It's hard to explain to RL family and friends what a community we have and how connected we've all become.

We had a wonderful time on our trip and Travis is a very kind and considerate soul, so he really appreciated having all of us there cheering him and the team on.

I am definitely starting to feel better, too. Thanks for all the get well wishes.

Lisa I love the new layout, and the banner! Any day you start off your post with a Vanity Fair shot, you can be doubly sure I'll read it!

Isabella MARIE Cullen said...

Glad to have you back!!!! Have fun at Mama Cougars tonight! Post pics of you crazy chicks! I promise, I will post lots and lots of pics from my party tonight on my blog!

17foreverlisa said...

@sparkle for twilight - Thanks! Now that I've taken the leap and changed the format/look, I'm going to have fun with the banner and change it from time to time. And, yes, that VF photoshoot still rocks my socks :)

@Isabella MARIE Cullen - It's great to be back! Pretty sure Mama Cougar is going to document the entire thing. *gulp* Have fun at your party, too. Can't wait to hear about it and see the pictures!
