Take Me Out to the Ballgame!

Heyo, and happy rainy Monday to you.  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Mine was so wonderful that I spent the whole day yesterday horizontal.  Whether it was outside in the backyard in the sunshine, or in my bed.  Mostly in my bed.

I had a summer hours day on Friday, which meant I hightailed it out of the office at noon and ran some errands.  One of those errands was to Victoria’s Secret to take advantage of their semi-annual sale.  While shopping, I noticed that not only was I one of the tallest people in there, but I was most definitely one of the oldest.  What is with the 12 and 13 year-olds shopping there? I don’t think I could even fill out a VS bra until I was at least 20.  Anyway, I bought all of the things (3 pairs of pj’s, 3 bras, 5 pairs of underwear) and then left the mall without even entering another store.  The damage was that bad.  Except then I went to the pet store and the grocery store, so I wasn’t really done spending money.  Summer hours are really bad for my credit card.

Saturday morning I was up bright and early, and headed up for a 2ish mile run before my roommate, Dani, and I headed over to Nats park to watch the Yankees play.  I’m really depressed that my first baseball game of the year wasn’t until the middle of June, but it sure was a good one to go to!

There’s my future husband, DJ, making a nice play at short stop

Andy’s 40th birthday wish was clearly for a win (he turned 40 on Friday)

Here’s Dani and I, sweating our asses off in the sun, and getting really sweet tan lines

Yes. that’s right, the 14th Inning Stretch

The game started at 1:05, so when we were still sitting there nearly 5 hours later watching this game we were thankfully the sun had finally moved behind the stadium putting us in some shade.  Thankfully, that 14th inning was the last inning and the Yankees pulled off the win!  Dani and I quenched the thirst we’d been battling since the middle of the 7th with some much needed post-game brews.

And then we ate Chipotle and were both in bed by 10 pm.  It was a fantastic weekend, and now I just have 3 days of work to get through before I head out to Wisconsin on Thursday for a nice long weekend.  So excited!

  1. Haha I’m not a big baseball fan, but I like going to games, because they’re a fun excuse to sit outside all afternoon! haha

    I go see the little AA team here in Richmond pretty often!

  2. I’ve been through a 14 inning stretch once; pretty cool. Cept the Phillies lost, but still exciting.

  3. Thats a loooong freaking game. I knew they could go on for awhile, but holy man thats long. I’m glad you had such a good weekend though. 🙂

  4. I’m trying to be a Nats fan so I should talk some smack about you rooting for the Yanks, but I just don’t care that much yet, haha. Glad you had fun!

  5. I’ve only gone to one baseball game this summer. It’s a sad state of affairs. But luckily, since the cubs are horrible, if I really want to go, I probably can for under $20 without an issue.

  6. That is a really long game! I haven’t been to a Phillies game yet. This is the longest I’ve gone without going to one.

  7. How fun! I have yet to go to a baseball game this year. BUT the Thunder are in the Finals so I guess I can’t be too picky 😉
