Happy birthday

Yesterday was my birthday. And in case you are wondering, it was my “29th” birthday … again. LOL. Overall it was a great day. We even had some snow in Lehigh Valley! (I’m hoping that doesn’t hurt the leaf changing process by bringing them down before they get to totally change colors.)

I spent my birthday evening with my second “family.” I belong to, and am secretary for, an international organization called SKAL. To sum it up, SKAL is a network of travel and tourism professionals from around the world. Each month we have dinner at different establishments. Last month we were at Sayre Mansion in Bethlehem; the month before that we went to a Lehigh Valley IronPigs game at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown. Sometimes we even visit other clubs in surrounding areas and states.

I have to be honest, I’m not really a big fan of baseball. So why did I buy an 18-game mini plan ticket package at Coca-Cola Park? To be part of the experience that is Lehigh Valley IronPigs baseball, of course. Let me explain.

I try to arrive at least half an hour early for each game to get settled in. After dropping off my large red #1 foam finger and logoed seat cushion at my seat, I’m off to find food.

Nacho porker and a coke

Last week, my boyfriend Kent, our friend Curtis and I went to opening day at Coca-Cola Park to watch the Lehigh Valley IronPigs play the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Yankees (another resolution checked off my list!).

After getting some cold brews and a $3.50 bottle of Coke for me, the guys parked themselves along the right field railing and I went in search of food.

This is the final post in my 2009 New Year’s resolution series, which revolves around experiencing more in Lehigh Valley. Previous installments include the Top 5 Plays for 2009 and the Top 5 Restaurants for 2009.

I’ve lived in this area for 28 years now (I just celebrated my birthday on Friday), and I’m amazed how many things there are to do in Lehigh Valley that I didn’t know about. So my final resolution for 2009 is to experience five new things to do in Lehigh Valley.

It’s only two days till Black Friday and if you’re like me, you’re still trying to figure out what to buy and for whom. Here’s a list I started of some unique Christmas gifts I didn’t find at the mall …

1.  Moravian Star – Since my grandmother grew up in Bethlehem, I thought a star from the Moravian Book Shop might be a nice keepsake for her.

Kudos once more to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs: They have been chosen to host the 2010 Triple-A All Star Game! The announcement made last week marks the first time that a first-year team has been named to host the event. The game will be played on July 14, 2010 at Coca-Cola Park. It will be the culmination of three days of celebration for Triple-A Baseball with events including an All-Star Fan Fest and a Home Run Derby. The game will be televised nationally, which means the eyes of the minor league baseball world will be on Lehigh Valley, PA in 2010.

I had the pleasure of being part of the announcement and unveiling of the All-Star Game logo and a digital countdown clock that will be running until the first pitch of the game.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting at Lehigh University’s Stabler Arena in Bethlehem.

This was my first Chamber affair, and I was pleasantly surprised at the grandeur of the event. Stabler provided a big, open area to house the 1,000 or so people in attendance. As you can imagine, lunch for that many people could be a task, so they opted for boxed lunches and goodie bags at every seat. There was confetti streaming from the stage, a dramatic voice announcer and lots of audio-visual effects; it was quite a show.

It's over. I can get back to a normal sleep pattern. I'm so excited, as is the majority of the east coast who have daytime jobs! Yes, I'm talking about the World Series.

The highlight for me was having two tickets to the World Series Premiere Party, hosted by Nacci Printing, at Coca-Cola Park last Wednesday. Even with temps in the 30s, my son and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to watch the first game of the series on the big screen in center field.

With Halloween right around the corner, I thought I would tell the whole world (yes, I think our blog is that popular) that I’m a scaredy-cat. I could not possibly name all my fears, so I’ll give you a short list, in no particular order:

  • noises
  • crowds
  • scary movies
  • ghosts
  • haunted houses
  • imaginary people on the deck of my house ready to break in
  • shark attacks
  • bear attacks
  • dog attacks

Basically I’m afraid of all animals attacking me. I think everyone who knows me thinks I’m overreacting about the whole fear of animals thing, but a few select family members witnessed my fear firsthand over the weekend.
