So these past weeks have been super complicated and for a lack of a better word pretty crappy! My uncle died on Friday the 13, which is very devastating. Also, I’ve been in the hospital for my head issues and just got out the day before Thanksgiving! So I’m very thankful for all of my fellow bloggers, as well as my family/friends and my improving health.
So I’m dusting off the dust from not blogging and I’m going to make an effort to continue blogging.
Here are a few pics from over the last several weeks. My dog and I, my bags finally packed and ready to go home, and the pretty sunset at the hospital:)
I’m really sad about writing this post, I was in denial for a while when the talk around SportsCenter and on Phillies news was about Chase Utley’s contract. I really REALLY can’t believe he will no longer be a Phillies player- that really hurts especially when I got to meet him and see for myself what a nice person he and his wife are.
I think the city will definitely miss Chase and his wife Jennifer a lot! They both do so much for the ASPCA and are very active in the city. It’s going to be weird going down to a Phillies game and no longer recognize the second baseman.
But, I am very happy for him too, he is going back to LA where he is originally from, he attended UCLA and then started playing for the Phillies. I also think it’s going to be amazing getting to see Jimmy Rollins and Chase be back together! The dynamic duo will be back in tack and that is something that really makes me smile.
All I know for certainty is two things 1) I’m surely going to miss Chase on our team and 2) I’ll be buying tickets to a Phillies vs Dodgers to make sure I get to see the dynamic duo back in action:)

Over the weekend my family and I went up to Hershey to see Maroon 5 play on Saturday night. Can I just tell if you ever get a chance to see them GO! Adam Levine is incredible in concert, he is very energetic and is all over the stage constantly moving. At one point in the concert it was so hot on stage he told the people in control of the fog to turn it down because he was sweating!
I was really happy that he sang a mix of both old and new songs because I’m more a fan of his older albums, he sang “Sunday Morning,” which is my favorite song. We also had really great seats, which my sister got for us (well she ordered them) we were row 55 on the floor so while my phone didn’t take the best pictures of the band, I could see them perfectly!
They played for roughly two hours, at first they stopped an hour into it at around 10 and everyone was bummed, but then they jumped back on stage and started playing again for another hour. I guess I should have said this in the beginning, but Nick Jonas was the openner- and tbh I only know two of his songs from the radio. So while all the young girls (and 40 year old moms) rocked out I sat and waited for Adam to get on stage:)
The stadium was packed and I’ve never been to that stadium before, but they do NOT know how to properly get people in and out of the venue! The traffic was horrible getting just in the parking lot and getting out of the parking lot. I’ve been to many concerts and events before with more crowded venues and have not had problems like this, but that is one thing Hershey sure does not know how to do properly. I guess since I’m used to Philadelphia’s crowds and how we all are and act after sporting events, I wasn’t prepared for that. We all will run you over if you don’t move! Of course we will wave and scream “Go Phillies” if it’s a baseball game, but we want to get home after all:)
Hopefully my phone let’s me post more videos soon!
