D Is For Dream (Come True)

I spoke about my dad(s) last round so I figured this round we have to do something different. Don't doubt that I miss my dad(s) every day. Not a day goes by that they, (at least 2 of them), I think of constantly. The other one, not so much.
Now onto what does matter in life, those precious moments that come once in a lifetime.
One of my dreams came true this past weekend. It was my birthday present from the hubby.... along with other stuff you'll hear about in a second...
Vince and myself, Dec 8 at the ACC
I went to my very first Toronto Maple Leaf game!
This is huge!!!
I am a big fan. I bleed blue. I love this team more than any team from any sport, anywhere! Seriously.
The hubby took me to Toronto, we had a nice dinner at Canyon Creek on Front St, which was friggin' awesome I tell ya, then we headed to the Air Canada Center for the game!
The energy of this place is amazing. It is something I can't even put into words, it's just an experience you have to have for yourself if you are a fan of hockey too.
I took a little video of the energy of the place after Toronto opened up the scoring.



I wasn't tipsy at this point, but by the end of the game my toes were tingling... lol.. it was a great night!
The prices of tickets, the jersey hubby bought me with my favorite leaf on it, (#43 Kadri), the beer, the Go train to and fro, dinner... that's what makes it a once in a lifetime experience. Birthday or no birthday.
It's a night I will never forget.
We had box seats with a waitress, it just doesn't get any better than that... LOL
I saw my favorite team live, my memories will hold tight to that one. I don't care that they lost that night. I care I was there to watch them lose.

So there's Freda, the hockey fanatic. No, scratch that. I'm just a Leaf fan.

What's your favorite sport or team?

  2. Tennis for me. One on one, slogging it out for 4 hours in a grand slam 5 setter. Now that's tough.

  7. That's awesome, Freda! I'm a huge hockey fan too. I love my hometown Jets but I'm also a fan of the Oilers and Canucks. I'll actually cheer for all Canadian teams at some point during the season except maybe the Flames lol One day I'd like to be able to catch a game in every Canadian rink.

  8. I have Canadian family that are hockey fans, ...but I'm pretty much an Arkansas Razorbacks girl, even though they've had a terrible season this year in football.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
