Trouble with the Curve

From: Google 

I spent the weekend with my boyfriend, Kevin, and we went to go see the movie Trouble with the Curve. I hadn't heard of it until we decided that day that we were going to the movies. He insisted that it was going to be a good movie because it had the Braves in it (which is his favorite MLB team). So we went and I really enjoyed it! I thought the main focus was going to be be baseball, but it was more on the relationship between a father and daughter. Clint Eastewood, Justin Timberlake, and Amy Adams were some of the main characters. Below is a description of the movie. 

Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) has been one of the best scouts in baseball for decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with him. Nevertheless, Gus-who can tell a pitch just by the crack of the bat-refuses to be benched for what may be the final innings of his career. He may not have a choice. The front office of the Atlanta Braves is starting to question his judgment, especially with the country's hottest batting phenom on deck for the draft. The one person who might be able to help is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put her on the fast track to becoming partner. Against her better judgment, and over Gus's objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his. -- (C) Warner Bros from Rotten Tomatoes

This is what we looked like on the way to the movie.....

Aren't we cute in our matching Braves shirts?!

I'm on a Postcard!

Yesterday, a girl that works in the Study Abroad office at WKU said she had something for me. She handed me this....

It's a postcard the Study Abroad office will be sending and handing out on campus! I got really excited that they picked my picture! There were other pictures selected, so I'm not the only one, but it's still pretty cool! I believe that over 2,500 of these were ordered. This picture was taken last summer when I was in studying abroad in Segovia, Spain. The famous Roman Aqueduct is behind me. I can't wait to visit Spain again!

The Fray + Kelly Clarkson


The Fray is one of my favorite bands. Over the summer I was looking up concerts and I saw that The Fray was coming to Nashville. So....I bought tickets! It also said that Carolina Liar and Kelly Clarkson were performing too, which was awesome!

My friend, Jordan and I left for Nashville in the late afternoon and made it in time for dinner. We ate downtown on Broadway, which was only a couple blocks from the concert at Bridgestone Arena. We had a good dinner at Big River Grille. After we were ready for the concert!

Jordan enjoying her drink!
Me...I know I'm short! The chairs were way too low for the table.
First up was Carolina Liar. The only song of theirs that I knew was "Show Me What I'm Looking For" but they sounded great! We showed up a little after it had started so we only saw them perform 3 songs.

Waiting for The Fray!

Finally it was time for The Fray! Let me tell you one thing...I thought The Fray was the main performer, so I assumed Kelly Clarkson was next. I was wrong, but they both performed the same amount so it didn't really make a difference. They both were amazing! 

They performed all songs I knew (of course) including my favorite song off their new album "Turn Me On" It was awesome! Some other songs were "Over my Head" "You Found Me" "Look After" "How to Save a Life" "Heartbeat" and "Happiness"plus others.

Later he played the piano in the middle of the audience which was cool. He also ran through the crowd and was only 5 rows in front of us. It was exciting! 

After The Fray was Kelly Clarkson. She did A-Mazing! She didn't hit one bad note. Jordan and I had so much fun singing and dancing along to all of her songs. She sang all of her popular songs including: "Breakaway" "Darkside" "Since You've Been Gone" "Miss Independent" "My Life Would Suck Without You" All good songs!

After the concert we headed back to Bowling Green and got someone to take a picture of us on Broadway in Nashville. It was quite a hoppin' street!

Whole Wheat Applesauce Muffins

I finally did some baking! I've been getting the urge to bake and I found a "autumny" muffin recipe that I was excited to try. I tweaked the recipe a little bit (one because I didn't have any eggs and two because I forgot to add the vanilla extract, oops!) 

My roommate, Hannah,  thought they were delicious according this picture:

She says quote "my tastebuds are in heaven!" (She actually did say this, in case you were wondering)

Here are all the ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1 stick butter, softened
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease muffin pan well with cooking spray.
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. 
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add dry ingredients, along with applesauce, to the wet ingredients and beat until combined.
Separate the batter into the muffin pan- fill 3/4. Bake for 15-20, until the edges get brown. ENJOY :)

I finally got to use my new pig whisk! I was excited!

Happy September! School has been keeping me busy, so that's why there have been a lack of posts lately! I've been meaning to make this post for over a month now, but here it finally is...

Have you ever heard of DailyMile? Well, it's this really cool website where you can keep track of your workouts, mostly running/swimming/biking. For me it is only running that I post. You can invite friends and see how their workouts are going, and you can even compete to see who has the most! I really like the layout of the website because you can see how your week is going, as well as all time history. 

For each run, the distance, time, mood, and description is recorded, so it's a great way to keep track! Have you noticed the new "widget" I have on the side of my blog that says "Mini Distance Widget"? Well, that's from DailyMile and the number represents how many miles from August 1st (the first day I signed up on the website) I've run. I believe today is 48..which means I have run an average of over 1 mile/day, I personally think that's good, but I would love it be higher than that! 

Below is an example of someone's all time history....
They show how many donuts burned, TVs powered, and gas saved. That's cool!
