Priorities

Page and I were at the Twins vs Tigers baseball game in Minneapolis the other night. I’m walking back to our seats after a lap around the concourse to assess the dessert options for sale before settling on an Izzy’s ice cream cone.

As I take the last few stairs down to our row, the crowd around me suddenly stands up and starts scrambling around. I look up and see that a pop fly is literally headed straight toward us.

My first thought: "Oh shit, that ball is going to land on top of my ice cream cone and ruin it! PROTECT THE ICE CREAM!"

Meanwhile, Page is on his feet, scrambling and reaching toward the ball with the rest of them.

His first thought: "GET THAT BALL!"

In the end, a guy in the row ahead of us ended up getting the ball, and I was able to happily finish my still-intact ice cream cone.

As I thought about this specific experience, I realized how perfectly it illustrates Page’s and my true priorities.

Page = Sports.

Devan = Food.

Remember that one time last year when I freaked out in the parking garage after the Michael Buble concert because I saw two of my FAVORITE food bloggers, Bjork and Lindsay from Pinch of Yum?

Well, here they are in a recent segment for our local Fox News channel: http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/26543539/maple-glazed-pumpkin-muffins

omggg they are my fave! Also I somehow feel like the fact that they are on TV justifies last year’s freaking-out-ness. Like they’re actual local celebs now or something.

Indiana “Robecca” Wedding fun:

Visiting some favorite spots in East Lansing

I swear I worked a lot while in EL, though these two photos don’t accurately reflect that… also, it may need to become a thing that I get a photo of myself holding an alcoholic beverage on each of my next four trips this fall.

Next up: whirlwind girls’ weekend in NYC this Fri-Mon. Haven’t been there since high school and really looking forward to a return visit!

I was so proud of this killer pattern-mixing outfit that I felt compelled to take a terrible faceless selfie in the printer room at work. Fashion photo-documentation for the sake of Tumblr!
