Date Night at The Target Center

So we went to the Timberwolves game last night and got to watch it from a great suite with this view :) 
And these are the people we watched the game with.  A bunch of area youth pastors and their spouses.  Can't you just tell??  Everyone seemed to have the youth pastor "look"!  Someone tell me how the preggo girl got stuck standing on a seat in the back??  I was sure I might fall at any second.  I think I was squeezing Trav's leg with all my might!! 
And just because I love him, here's the cute guy whose job brings us lots of fun "perks."
If it seems like I am "glowing" it's because I am.  Not because of pregnancy bliss but because I felt like it was 100 degrees in that suite!  I knew we had a problem when we arrived and I began sweating within minutes.  I mean s-w-e-a-t-i-n-g, as in dripping.  That seems to be my latest problem these days.  I have abandoned all my coats and find myself dressing layers so I can shed them as the day goes.  Travis says I'm like an oven, radiating heat for all three of us!  He's right.  I am always hot and last night was no exception.  That turtleneck was only a tissue weight tee, but it was NOT a good idea!!
And what would a professional sporting event be, without a bunch of girls wearing almost nothing and dancing to crowds of cheering men with beers??  Not the dream I have for my daughter.  

And that is just one of the reasons why I love college sports more than professional sports.  The game was fun, the Timberwolves were ahead the whole time and gave it away in the last 7 minutes.  Classic.  We enjoyed ourselves but I think I paid a big price from all the walking we had to do from the arena to the parking garage.  I was in terrible pain last night and hardly slept.  Today I've spend most of the day at home, resting and cat napping.  We are sort of spoiled now.  I don't think I'd ever want to see a game unless I was in a suite again :)  It's awfully nice to have servers, private (clean) bathrooms, and comfortable seats with a great view!  How can I ever mingle with the "commoners" again??  Just kidding!  We did realize that Ava has now officially been to 2 professional sporting events.  We went to a pre-season Vikings game when I was barely preggo and now the Timberwolves.  We just need to hit the Twins and we'll be three for three in Minneapolis!   

On a totally unrelated note, I have been working on some valentines day stuff today and I'm totally excited about it!!  I really love surprises and they just kill my husband!  He begs me for more details everyday but so far I've been able to keep my mouth shut :) What about you??  What are you doing for valentines day?  And have you ever pulled off a great surprise for someone??  Do tell....

Oh my goodness... I could never go back to the "common" seats after that - just for the bathroom alone!!!

And did anyone tell you that your husband resembles Steven Curtis Chapman... he does... a younger one! Tell him to make a video singing a song for us! :-)
