A Baby and Basketball!

Friday I had the loveliest time with my new friend Tammie. As you may remember, this was our first adventure out on our own without our husbands...and boy did we have a blast! She is so much fun and I am really excited about how much we had in common. I'm just so sorry I didn't meet her sooner.

We walked around the outdoor mall for a little while and then made our way to Starbucks for a break. Tammie is only maybe a week away from having her very first baby so a little exercise is a lot for her. She is too cute though. When Matt found out we were hanging out, he said, "Oh that's so exciting! If she goes into labor, you can take her to the hospital!" Well, I kinda flipped! What the heck would I do if this really did happen?? What hospital does she go to...do we need to get her bag...is she even packed...how long should I stay? I actually got kind of nervous! I ended up blabbing about this to Tammie on the way home and she thought it was the funniest thing ever. We had ourselves a good laugh...and she assured me that she was at least a week away from going into labor. We're planning an Oreo Truffle making session this week though...so I may in fact be the one driving my new friend to the hospital.

Speaking of Oreo Truffles...here they are!


My basketball idea did NOT turn out. Ha! Obviously..

I made the orange color chocolate and they were too cute. I was lazy and bought the store bought chocolate icing to make the stripes because I didn't want to whip up any chocolate buttercream. Well...the consistency did not work. It just didn't pipe in a straight line AT ALL! I ended up just doing little squiggles. Hey...they taste the same right?? They were still delicious and are now gone. Everyone at the party we went to on Saturday loved them...so I'd say...success!

My bracket, on the other hand, took a huge beating. I was sitting pretty...and this weekend was 1 for 4. Yikes...no money for me. Oh well...

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! As for me...it's a little Amazing Race and then off to bed. 4:45 comes pretty early on Mondays...

And don't worry about your bracket. I'm right there with you. Kansas losing to Michigan State really killed it for me. Oh well. March Madness 2010 here I come!

Oh~ I do hope you are with her when she goes into labor. I got to be in the delivery room with my bestfriend. The baby's head would show, then disappear over and over again. They finally had to take her in for a c-section. Poor baby Hailey was born with a horrible bruise above her forhead where she was being slammed into her mommies pubic bone with every push. She was sunny side up and couldn't make it the regular way. Now she is a sassy 2 year old!

Oreo truffles?? You are speaking my language. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to wipe the drool off my desk.

Go Heels!! These little basketball truffles are precious, and the idea of an oreo truffle is just fantastic. Yay for new friends! Tammy sounds delightful.

Oreo truffles sound SO GOOD! Even if they didn't LOOK like basketballs, most importantly they still tasted like Oreo truffles!
