Kick- baller


kickball base

Kickball is by far the best sport ever! You get to kick like soccer, but sprint like baseball. And you get to talk trash the entire lap around the bases. My friends and I have been getting together and playing kickball whenever we have a free weekend. Yesterday we played a celebratory game for my birthday and we had so much fun!

My team was losing, so we decided to reenact instead. This slide left a grass stain on my hand, but it was totally worth it!

The food was a basic grill potluck, but we did have something that you all have to try. Grilled pineapple with mascarpone cheese! It’s easy to make; just grill the pineapple until it has grill marks and serve with a dollop of mascarpone cheese. The pineapple is hot and sweet, but the cheese is smooth and creamy. Plus, it’s gluten free!

My best friend Alex also made a gluten free birthday cake for me! She used the 365 Organic (Whole Foods Brand) White Cake mix and it was so good! I had another small slice when I got home! (and for a snack today!?)

I had an amazing birthday party. The combination of sun, good food, and the best friends was exactly what I needed to celebrate. PLUS my friends all got together and got me one AWESOME present:


A cool blue Canon PowerShot Digital Elph!! It takes the most amazing photos!! My friends are so thoughtful and so sneaky!! They kept this gift a surprise for over a month!! I was so happy that I became embarrassed! (and nearly cried!!) I am so lucky to have my friends. They are golden.

So my recommendation for your next birthday: Have a kickball game!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
