Hi friends!

I don't know about you, but my mood has LIFTED since Spring finally decided to make her appearance last week.  My mind is running circles thinking all about flowers and long walks and grilling our dinners and hours of sunshine.

And these Blueberry Sour Cream Scones {more on these in a bit}.

Basically, my life is complete.

Our family is also now fully in BASEBALL and SOFTBALL mode.  A night does not pass where we are not there.  The husband is going a bit bonkers as he is coaching two of our total three teams, so between practices and games and equipment and schedules....well, our life is getting busy.

But here's the thing.  I love it!  I'm a sports fanatic, so I love nothing more that having our kids outside doing what they love.

Yesterday, I had two separate messages on Instagram asking again what products are getting me through baseball season {as I had mentioned them the day previous}, so I thought I'd mention them again here.

Because I've got a LOT of moms reading in the same boat as us!

First off - this Sport Utility Wagon has saved my life.  When you are carrying chairs, coolers, ball equipment, clothes, food and the like, nothing is better than throwing it all in this wagon and pulling it to the ball diamond.  Last weekend we had at least a 1/4 mile walk from the parking lot to our field and it was an easy as pie with this wagon.  It folds up beautifully and stays parked in the back of my van 24/7.

Second - these Outdoor Freestyle Rocker Chairs.  Last year I struggled with chairs at ballgames.  One breaking during a game with me falling flat on my butt {a brillant moment} and another one being left somewhere never to be found again.  I told the husband about a month ago that WE NEED TO BUY QUALITY CHAIRS BEFORE BASEBALL SEASON STARTS {can you read the importance?} and apparently he listened.  One day he walked in the door with these two chairs.  They are sturdy, not cheaply made and they rock {literally!}.

Am I being dramatic?  Probably.  But, here's the thing.  When you are sitting at the ballpark for multiple hours a week you want to be comfortable.

Last year I talked a lot about how to feed your family at the ballpark as well, because let's face it, no one wants to spend a fortune at the concession stand.

When we have doubleheaders and are there for multiple hours I often pack our meals to go.  Breakfast burritos and these Hot Italian Baked Subs are popular.  I just wrap them individually in foil straight out of the oven before we leave and they stay warm for hours.

If it's the weekend and we are there early in the day I love to keep this batter on hand in the fridge for my 1 Month Refrigerator Muffins.  It's easy to whip up a batch and throw them in a baggie for later.  Serve with some fruit and it's an easy breakfast at the park. 

You know what else are good any time of the day?

These scones!

I love scones.  I told my kids this week that they are a cross between a muffin and a biscuit.  They aren't meant to be overally sweet {only 2 tablespoons of sugar in the whole batch}, but the addition of fresh blueberries does add a juicy tang.

Also, they are easy to make.  I know, you see them in bakerys and at cafes and they look all fancy, but really they are simple to bake!  If you can mix ingredients in a bowl, use a round cutter and turn on the oven, you can bake up these scones.

If you don't have round cutters {this set of 4 is great}, simply use a glass out of your cupboard.  That is what I did!

Since we are entering the season of all fresh berries, feel free to use any berry.  Strawberries or raspberries would be great, even blackberries - but golly, I love the addition of blueberries in these scones.

Plus, did you notice the sour cream in the ingredient list?

Yeah.

I went there.

Give these a shot!  And if you are so inclinded and do make them, please share the love on social media with your friends and family.  You can use the hashtag #sweetsavoryeats and that will make sure I'll see it.  I'd love to get your feedback.  I'm promise I'll respond back!
