Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks!

After we saw the movie 42 Travis said "I can't believe you hate baseball!" I told him I didn't hate it, I just don't care about sports. The next thing I knew he had bought us tickets to see the local minor league team, the Sounds! The stadium is just a few minutes from our house and the tickets are so cheap! It was a fun way to spend a beautiful day. 
 We were sitting right behind the dugout. It was scary! I was sure I was going to get hit with a ball!
There were so many mascots there. I forget where the shark was from, but the frog was from rainforest cafe, and the lionish thing is the sounds mascot. That other thing is a CMT award? I think? So weird!
Peanuts! The guy next to us was spitting tobacco juice all over the floor! It was so nasty! His kids almost slipped it in so many times! Ugh!!! After about 20 minutes I started to get sun burned (I even put on sun screen! I'm too sensitive.
We escaped to the restaurant on the fourth floor. I can't believe my parents never took me up there! It is perfect! You can watch the game in the air conditioning and eat fries!
 And pickle chips!
Poor Travis. I think he'll probably take someone else to the game with him next time. I was too distracted. Isn't the score board cute though?
And look! Even more mascots! We left during the 9th inning because we were going to Eartha's house to dig through her garage. One of these nights we're going to go to a game with our bar trivia group.
 We finally made it to I Dream of Weenie after Eartha's house. I don't know what took us so long!
Isn't it cute? My tofu dog was so delicious! And I love the spicy ginger ale! We took our dogs to our best friends' house and watched Wife Swap. Why is that show so addictive?
I'm so happy it is getting sunny and warm! There are some big changes coming along for me this season and I'm nervous, and excited for them. (No I'm not pregnant or anything, ha!) It's been raining the past few days, but hopefully next week will be beautiful!


  1. Ive never been to a baseball game, Im not much for sports. I suppose there is a lot of retro charm to baseball though. Thanks for telling me about that afertlight app I am already totally addicted to instagram (and my new phone)
    urban hounds

  2. Are those fried pickles posing with your fries???? Inquiring minds want to know!! Mmmmmm.....fried pickles.
    I'm glad I'm not the only person who's hopelessly addicted to Wife Swap. I even used to find episodes on youtube when I lived in London so I could get my fix! Haha!

    1. I now see that they did I miss that? Oh, I know. I was too busy drooling over said 'pickle chips' to notice! LOL! I quite obviously have a fried pickle 'addiction'. ;)

  3. Yay! I wanna go to a sounds game! I am not sporty but I like a live baseball game bc they are pretty easy to follow. Also, I dream of weenie in the bees knees! Jamie got me obsessed. I know you're vegan but the Mac and cheese dog is delightful

  4. I'm not a big baseball fan but I loved "42", we saw it today!!

  5. I'm not a big baseball fan, either, but I love going to Sounds games! Just to eat the food and drink the beer and yell when everyone else yells (and because I like yelling)! haha. Throwback Thursdays are the best; they wear their old 80s uniforms and beers are $2!

  6. I love the living CMT random


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
