Love Golf Ball

Today is Sneak Peak day into my OBSESSION with the game of golf. What sparks this post you say? Oh I dunno. . . . how about the BEST birthday present a Wifey could ask for!! That’s right ladies. . . my husband knows me very well. While it’s currently snowing mind you- no seriously look at a radar for Detroit, I am still very much excited for the season to begin. With golf shows just around the corner and my office ramping up for the 2014 season, it’s no surprise that I’m already anticipating that first sweet, summer round! With all this being said. . . I present you the happiest birthday present I could have asked for- “The Pink Princess”.

Cobra Amp Cell Driver

Cobra Amp Cell Face

Cobra Amp Cell Head

Cobra Grips

Pink Princess – AKA The Cobra Amp Cell Driver with MyFly Technology. Adjustable trajectory and distance, this beautiful little monster can adjust your drive loft anywhere from 11.5-14.5 degrees with additional draw capabilities.  This driver also features SmartPad technology which delivers a square face at address regardless of loft setting and E9 technologies frees up additional weight for a 12% larger effective face, delivering faster ball speeds on mis-hits. Basically in English this thing is as powerful as it is SEXY. 

While I’m a little nervous to transition back to a Ladies Driver, I can’t help but be ecstatic over this colorful bundle of joy. While senior shafts (Golf Lingo Ladies – Lets Not Go Down That Road #GetYourHeadOutOfTheGutter) are typically my go to for the past 9 years, I have become especially fond of the colorful selections that PUMA Golf has put together in the last few seasons -Thanks Ricki Fowler, Your Colorful Attire Makes My Life. Of course colorful clubs shall never undermine your selection process, it’s only fair that I dabble in the market! I’ve hit the same TaylorMade R5 Driver since 2004 – That’s Right, When the Pistons won the Championship (That’s How I Paid For The Bad Boy) and it’s literally about time (more like 3 seasons ago) that I got a new driver. While my putter and irons are only a few season old, I’ve had a rather difficult time deciding on what to do about my #1. . . always teetering back and forth between Ladies and Men’s. Both have their upsides and downsides. Knowing I was bound to have a case of insta-gret immediately following the purchase, it was never made.

Ricki Fowler

Thank goodness PJ decided for me and got me something I truly adore. . . . sometimes the best gifts are the things you would never buy yourself! I am both confident and excited to get to the range and master the “Pink Princess”. It’s been a long while since I smashed a Chicky-Poo Wood but I can’t wait to get back at it. I literally have stared at this thing +5 minutes every day since it’s been gifted to me and my doubts of flex and loft have quickly been pushed aside by Pink-on-Pink-on-Pink. I even purchased some girly pink balls to match. . . . who knew?! (Typically you will NEVER see me buy girly balls, I find them annoying and feel that typically only the worst women golfers make such a purchase. . . . but this is a special occasion.) PLUS I’ll be confidently out-driving all the boys. . . . with a pink ball. #GeeImRealSorry #HowEmbarassingForYou. #SorryNotSorry.

Pink Callaway Balls

Are any of you golfers? Would you like to learn?

I would love to help give pointers and hope to someday have a Ladies Golf Blog for all those interested in learning the game, learning the lingo. . . . .or hell, just learning golf cart “drinking etiquette”- Something any and all women should learn. A total game changer! #PlusThatShitIsFun!

For the Love of Golf

Thanks again husband, it was a wonderful Birthday as always and I can’t wait for the snow to melt! 

Cheers!

Holy Rojo & A Gotta Love Your Husband Kinda Friday *

Happy Weekend Mother Friday’s! I personally cannot WAIT for dinner tonight. It’s hubby’s birthday and he decided on Mexican. While you don’t know me all that well (yet). . . . Mexican is by far my favorite feast of feasts.  A simple Irish gal, I feel as if my taste buds were exchanged at birth with that of a 90 year old Mexican man. I crave this shit. It’s not even normal. While I was tempted by the Cheddar Bay bundles of love earlier this week, I’m ecstatic about his decision and to make up for it, I’ll be picking up some of the mix tomorrow. . . I’ll let you know how it compares to the real Red Lobster. 

So Rojo, I don’t know much about it. I’ve only eaten here once, on Taco Tuesday. It was a spur of the moment idea with my friend Carrie and we enjoyed more Coronas than we did Tacos. It’s supposed to be an upscale Mexican spot I suppose? While my heart will always be with Sagebrush, (we’ll talk about that later) I  can’t comprehend driving 45 minutes to dinner. Rojo is close, convenient and looks extremely tasty. I’ve heard good things. . . . let the drooling begin. 

Birthday Dinner

So anyhow, yes. It’s my husband, Pj’s Birthday. He’s 31 #Old. We don’t exchange gifts until midnight tonight (My Birthday’s Tomorrow –  Just a fun little tradition we started) but I did happen to give him one gift early. A Bath Robe. Yes, that’s when you know you’re old. But seriously, he needed it. Walking around butt-ass naked from shower to basement every morning/evening to find clothes after bathing was just unacceptable. Sometimes gifts are more than just “wants”. I saw a cute concept online a few years back for kids that goes something like: Something You Want, Something You Need, Something To Wear, Something To Read. (I thought that was super cute but unless he’s going to read the Redwings Logo on his hat I got him, I failed in one of the categories #Oops) Anyhow, I’m excited to gift him the rest of his things. . . . A Northface (welcome to the club PJ) – Something To Wear. Redwings Hat – Something To Read / AKA Another Want I Am Just A Failure. This Ghostbusters Shirt – Something He Wants. I did ok, although technically everything is something to wear. #I’mSoConfused. #AreYou? Anyhow, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY! Can’t Wait To Grow Old Together – Literally! ♥ 

Happy Birthday PJ

To close this Friday. . . I just want to spend a quick second being that annoying mother. I got to spend the day with Paige yesterday (I work remote on Thursdays) and we had a perfect day. Ya know those days where you just couldn’t be happier being a mommy? Gah. I love them. We had 2 doctor appointments (one for her,one for me) then we went and got The Hefty Hannah (6 cupcakes- you should really watch Pretty Little Liars #Obsessed) from Red Velvet Cake Shop because I fucking love cupcakes for PJ and I’s birthdays, grabbed some McDonalds on our way home because that’s her one treat every 6 months after a check up – and shots :(, watched Lilo & Stitch 3 times, bath time, homemade meatloaf and ended the evening with a Parents Night at her Montessori. I was SUCH a proud mommy. I really adore her school and how much she loves it. She’s only there 2 days a week and it’s seriously amazing how much she’s taken in in just 6 months already. 

Ok I’m done. I swear. I just wanted to share my fun filled day with you all. OH and to top off the day, I got mis-rang at the CVS. . .  I tried to explain to the attendant but she just was NOT getting it. FREE TAMPONS!!!

Happy Early Birthday To ME!

The Best Present A Girl Could Ask For. Happy Friday Bitches!! 

Cheers!
