My weekend, in a nutshell

Friday - 
We were released early from work so I was able to meet my boy at the baseball field for a pre-game picnic with him and my favorite little girl, Casey.
The boys of Summer are back!!
It was the first game of the Summer season, and it was at one of my favorite fields for them to play at, because the field holds a special meaning for me, as it is built in memory of one of my friend's mother who passed when we were in elementary school together. It was great to be back at the ball park!

I swear I couldn't love anyone or anything more than I love this gorgeous girl 

Saturday -
Saturday I had a few errands to run, such as getting my oil changed and tires rotated.
After that was all up, I went to the burbs to celebrate one of my closest friend's graduation from Georgia Tech! Next she is headed to law school! I'm already jealous of the money she's going to be making one day and the super hot husband she's going to snag for herself. 
Obviously, this is not from the party, but I suck at taking pictures to document with these days.

Sunday -
I am proud to say that I spent the ENTIRE day obsessing over Revenge. I just picked it up this week and finished the whole first season over the weekend. I would have finished it sooner had I not had been trying to be a social butterfly. If you have not watched this yet, I can tell solely by that, that your life sucks. Do something about it. 

Monday - 
I spent my Memorial day off, basking in the sun enjoying America's favorite past time, baseball. Surprise, surprise! I wanted to get some sun, and the fields were puppy friendly so I couldn't resist. Plus, if that's how I get to see my boy, I'll take it anyway I can, I suppose. We had two games today in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains, so I felt right at home. Also, the weather was phenomenal!! Seriously, you couldn't have dreamed of a better day! I also got to visit the grave site of an old friend.. maybe I'll get the chance to tell you about him later. {okay, that's two comments about dead people in one post. what is up with me?! I swear I am normal, people.}
The boys look like they are in for a great summer on the diamond, and I've enjoyed meeting their families this first weekend. Right now, for once, I am excited about it being summer ball season.

notice my adorable pup in her natural habitat, the baseball field. I swear that dog was made to be a bleacher dog/baseball orphan.

If you know much about me, you know that my heart overflows with patriotism. Anything red, white, and blue fills me with joy, pride, and thankfulness. There are no words to express how proud I am to be an American and to be able to be a part of such a tremendous nation. Likewise, there is no way to explain how thankful I am for the valiant men and women who scarified  any and/or everything so that we can live freely, without fear, in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Thank you, soldiers. 


  1. Looks like you had a great weekend!! And how cute is your pup? I don't know WHAT mine would do at a baseball stadium--too much stimulation. haha

    1. She's been at the baseball field since she was a pipsqueak. It's all she's ever known! She loves all the smells and the friends she gets to make. The running joke is that she is the team's unofficial mascot, because I unleash her and let her roam the bleachers. Everyone loves her!
      Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Aww your pup is so cute! & I really need to start watching Revenge! I've heard SO many good things about it!

    1. Thank you! :)
      Revenge is so, so, SOOOO good! You're going to have to have a lot of time on your hands, because you will not want to pull yourself away. I'm having withdrawals right now from not being able to watch it.
