Yesterday was really busy, but in a good way. We started off checking out the gym where we live. I used my new tennis shoes for the first time, and I love them.
The gym is really good, I think. It has everything you need and the treadmills all have TV screens so you can watch TV shows while you’re power walking/running. You can also hook up your iPhone or iPod and play music. Entertaining while working out.
After testing out the gym a bit, we headed to the swimming pool, and had our premiere dip there. Didn’t bring my phone then so I don’t have any pictures from it, but you’ve seen the pool area before, from other posts. Anyway, after some lunch, our friend Jessica came over and we all headed to a tattoo place. No, I have not gotten another tattoo, but Jessica has. An awesome one! Liz and I were hanging out in the waiting area while Jessica was getting hers, and afterwards, we celebrated by going by YoLo – a frozen yogurt place.
We went to downtown Asheville, to The Gourmet Chip Company. A great place for chips lovers (read: Liz), but I like it too. They make homemade, fresh chips, and you can choose between several combinations with flavors. We ordered BBQ and one with honey, lavender, and blue cheese. Yum.
In the evening, we met up with some friends and went to a baseball game (Greenville vs. Asheville’s Tourists). We lost, but had tons of fun anyway. It’s such a cool thing to be part of this ultra-American stuff, such as attending a game, listening to all the songs and cheers people sing at specific times, eating a crap load of junk food, talking with friends, and then ending the night with pretty fireworks while sitting on the baseball field. It was Bella’s, our extra-niece’s, first baseball game ever (and my second one – still trying to remember all the rules and terms)!
Everyone singing The Star Spangled Banner – USA’s national anthem.
Hope you all have a good weekend!
