How to embarrass my husband:

I'm sure I embarrass him a lot, but this is one sure fire way!

1) Get invited by the Touchdown Club president to a Gwinnett Braves(ATL minors) game on opening weekend.

2) Not only get invited, but sit in a sweet suite!

3) Hang out with invitees family and 4 other coaches, wives and kids.

4) Enjoy watching all the kids watch Chopper, the mascot.

5) Invite Chopper into the suite for the kids.

6) Laugh as all the kids suddenly become Chopper-phobic, cry and run away.

7) Feel bad for Chopper and make Korey pose for photo (see below)

Take this, Michelle Obama!

I'm not the first lady and I don't live at the most famous address in the US of A, but I can plant a garden too! For the last few years, I've grown tomatoes, peppers and herbs in pots on our back patio. But this year I wanted to step it up. I somehow talked Korey into digging up a small area in our backyard, spreading compost and then digging holes. I've told Korey that if he makes fun of my gardening obsession at all, he will not eat this summer. But today he told a friend at Home Depot that asked what we were up to: "Mary hugs trees on weekends". Maybe I do.

Here are some pics of the project. Not exactly the white house lawn, but almost.

Hopefully in the next few weeks or months we'll enjoy tomatoes, squash, blueberries, strawberries, jalapeno peppers, banana peppers, cayenne peppers, basil, oregano, parsley, and rosemary.
