That I finally got to check out a few RoughRiders games (that's the Rangers AA team in Frisco). I love minor league baseball (okay, I love any kind of baseball), but minor league games are super fun to attend. I went to a game last Thursday night and on Sunday afternoon. Sunday was Bark at the Park Day and there were so many cute dogs there. I wish I had gotten a picture of some of them.
|My friend Daniel went with me on Thursday. I forgot to tell him that I'm always taking pictures. :)|
|My baseball homegirl Beks works part time at the Roughriders games. I had to stop by for a hug. Yes, I hug. A lot. If you have never met me in person, this is your warning. :)|
|My friend Art also works for the Roughriders and I got to see him on Thursday too!|
|My view Thursday night and Sunday afternoon (yeah for free tickets!)|
|Sunday was my friend Eric's first time to see a Roughriders game.|
The crazy weather in Texas. We had a week full of sunshine and temperatures in the 70s and 80s. Then Saturday a cold front hit and it was overcast and freezing (in the 50s- yes that is freezing to us). Nevertheless, my friends and I enjoyed our tailgate before the Rangers game. Even cold temperatures couldn't stop us from being out there.
|My friend Andrew works with me and saw on Facebook that I was tailgating, so he came by to say hi|
|It was cold, but at least we looked cute in our Rangers beanies|
|Former Rangers great Rafael Palmeiro was signing autographs before the game|
Cute gifts from my friends. My friend Lisa made us all fans to use at baseball games (obviously we didn't need them on Saturday though). She put a picture of Steve Avery on my fan. As you all know, he is the "Avery" behind my "Averyfan" handle. So, it's basically an Avery fan for Averyfan. :)
Going to Rangers games. I know, this shocks you, especially after the first part of my post. Lol. I went to two RoughRiders games and three Rangers games over a five day period. I promise I don't have a baseball problem. :)
|With one out in the 9th, it started pouring. Thankfully my friend Monica and I were prepared with ponchos. The rain only lasted about 10 minutes so we were able to see the fireworks show after the game. :)|
|Watching Saturday's game with some of my Twitter family- I love these peeps!! I never would have thought that I would get such wonderful friendships from Twitter. These people are truly the best!|
|I actually took Monday off work to get some rest and take care of a few errands. My friend Harry texted with a last minute Rangers ticket for that night, so of course, I had to go.|
That I finally saw my high school friend Matt Belisle pitch in a big league game. He's a relief pitcher and it seems I was never at a game where he pitched. Monday night he came in to pitch for the Twins. As much as I want my friend to succeed in his career, I wish he hadn't pitched so well against my boys. :)
|Matt and I were on newspaper staff together my senior year. Super sweet guy, just wish he played for the Rangers so I wouldn't feel guilty cheering for him. :)|
When I get to see friends I haven't seen in FOREVER. After 15 months trying to plan lunch/dinner, my friend Landon and I finally had brunch on Sunday. It's ridiculous how busy we both are, we laugh about it. And on Saturday I got to see my friend Cheryl. I've known her since I was 14, but we hadn't seen each other in about 12 years. She and her fiance were in town for a Rangers game so we met up before the game.
|I joked with Landon that I thought he was a figment of my imagination since I hadn't seen him in so long.|
|Oh, the stories I could tell about the trouble we caused when we were younger- but I won't. :)|
That I'm on week two of my 30 Day Shred workout. We will see if I can keep it up. This is how I feel about working out. Lol.
What are YOU loving today??
