The Results Are In!

Sorry, no, not a post about Maury or revealing anyone's baby daddy.

Well, I know you have been waiting on baited breath...

The hubs' team won last night, which puts them in THE FINALS!!! Eeek! 

Cele it up boys! (source)
I am not only happy for the team (and proud of the hubs), who really came through this tough season to finish on top, but I am also so relieved to know that the final series won't start until next Sunday. Which means I can relax a bit until then.

And if I though I was nervous in the 'Best-of-7' rounds leading up to this point, I seriously need some elephant tranquilizers to get through the 'Best-of-5' finals. Well, that or a butt-load of booze :) Nah, tranquilizers will work great.

You're...you're crazy man. I like you, buy you're crazy. (source)

Now, I can begin the oh-so-fun process of packing (eh, not so bad, we got it down pretty good) and FINALLY start thinking about going home for the summer. 

I hadn't let myself think about being at home for a while now. Once I get Texas (and Sonic and Taco Cabana and Pei Wei and Diet Dr. Pepper and stores open on Sunday) on my brain, I have a hard time thinking about anything else. For reals. Now I am craving all of that!

Yes semi-outdated postcard, you really DO sum up Texas nicely! (source)
So I promised that if the team won this series, I would let ya'll in on where we were and what team he plays for. Some of you already know, but for those of ya'll who don't, I want to do a fun little write up on this beautiful and historic town.

Well, the town we live close to. The 'town' we live in consists primarily of apple trees and goats :)

So, since I honestly don't know that much about the history of this town, whoops!, I will have to gather some good info for the post. I'm excited to take ya'll on a tour of a 'klein aber fein' German town!

Hope everyone is having a great Monday and is a little more clear headed than I am. What!? We were celebrating last night :)

  4. I don't know how you do it. After a week's vacation somewhere else, I am dieing for Tex-Mex and all things margarita. Enjoy!

  5. Yay for finals! BEST OF LUCK to your hubs! And it's so exciting you get to start thinking about coming home to TX!

  6. haha they don't have diet dr. pepper there?? what a tragedy. I thought not having mexican food was bad enough. silly europe.

  7. Yea! So glad they made it!
    I'm kind of like you with the getting excited about whatever the "next thing" is, moving... a trip somewhere... a new job, etc. I remember before I moved back from Spain I could NOT stop thinking about Chipotle every day. My stomach would hurt I wanted it so bad haha!

    Looking forward to the post about your town!

  8. Congrats!!! How exciting, and in many ways, especially that you'll be comin' on back to the good ol' U.S.A. and some real food, lol!

    Keeping the best of thoughts for the hubs and his team as well as for you!

    Sippin' a Diet Dr.P in your honor!


  9. OMG Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!! All the best to them for the Finals!! I don't know what I am more excited about. The Playoffs, or the fact that you get to go back to "deep in the heart of texasss"!!

    @Jackie - silly europe indeed. If you are lucky, you can find regular DP, but I like my diet. I will be downing a whole 12 pack right off the plane, lol
    @Meri - I always get excited for the 'next thing' too! It is fun to think about the next thing in the future, sometimes too much. I need to enjoy the moment too, haha. Oh, and I love Chipotle too!! Yum.

  13. Congrats on the win AND your week of down time! So exciting, but I really hope you bring at least one goat home to Texas...just a little momento of the season. Consider the goat your permanent good luck charm. That's the secret of winning, you know. Goats.

  14. @Sherri - well thanks! And yes, I have had that whole scene in my head all day :) What a great movie, lol.

    @No7 - Well thanks! Haha, you think I could sneak one past security?! They would have no problems with that, right?! They are good luck charms, so true!! I will dedicate this season to them :)

  15. Happy Monday to you too! I tell you whut, I busted up laughing for reals when I saw that picture because that's exactly how I WAS SITTING! Harrgh!

    I hate the lack of the Diet Dr. P also. Enjoy your mini-break!

  16. Congratulations!! How exciting. I really think with a week you have time to try different mixes of drugs and booze. Just to tone you down for the finals. Perhaps they could put you in a straight jacket and prop you in a chair to watch? I'm trying to be a helper bee.

  17. Woo Hoo Congrats!! I will drive 20 min out of my way for a cherry limeade. They're worth it.

  18. Yay!!! Congratulations...this is all VERY exciting. Between you and Heather of Belle of The Desert, I now have TWO hockey teams to pull for. Here's to a great post-season (is that even what you call it in hockey) and no nervous breakdowns!!

  19. well thats exciting news! & i dont have a sonic near me but there is one being built by my school. I cant wait to try it and see what the raves are all about!

  20. Oh my god, you know your husband would love shooting you with a fakey tranquil dart. And you back at him should he 'avoid' practice this week! Congrats to a hard working duo-your hubs and his leading lady! Hope you got some rest grass-side with the sun today.

  21. Woo hoo! How exciting! And to go home to Texas....wow. I want a visit SO. BAD.


    If you're ever in Irving, go to a hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant called Danal's . I am salivating just thinking about their kick-a** salsa!

  22. Nothing better than winning and a picture of Will Farrell! Go Alex, go!

  23. congratulations, also a town with apples and goats sounds heavenly.
