Weekend Shenanigans {{4.20.15}}

It's been as dry as the Sahara over here. Mostly because I have been living life in real time. Meaning, I forget to take photos of anything and when I do remember G gets pissy about it. Oh, and baseball season is back, which takes up my whole life.

Friday night G and I went to the ballgame. It was our first series against the Oakland A's, whom Billy Butler now belongs to. So, we wanted to go cheer on Country Breakfast as he got his American League Championship ring. I let G pick the seats, even though I know that the cheap seats are not for me. Call me bougie all you want, but I like to be away from large groups of drunk people and screaming kids. I call the people I like to sit near professional fans, i.e. they come to enough games that they know the unwritten rules- they don't bring children under 5, make enough small talk for you to feel comfortable, and know what's going on in the game. We ended up leaving early and finishing the game from our couch at home. Womp, womp.

We also got to see 3 players (Hosmer, Perez, and Gordon) receive their Golden and/or Platinum Glove Awards. It is the second year in a row that we have had multiple players win. 

Hanging with my bae. 


Saturday, I went and got the foul ball I caught 2 seasons ago signed by Danny Duffy (one of our starting pitchers). OMG! One of my friends got there at 7:30am to get out spot in line and I got there at 9 bearing McD's. He started signing at noon. There were no photos allowed. Although, I did get him to laugh by telling him how I caught the ball after he commented on the fact it was a game ball. Read that story here.

Next, I took G with me to the West Bottoms to pick up a shirt I ordered from Restoration Emporium. I had to hustle to get there and it was a hassle to order, they are only open 11-3 most days... You know, when normal people work. I absolutely love it and it was totes worth it.

This is a shirt I saw when picking up my baseball tee. I think I can make this-- it appears to be sequin fabric attached using iron on transfer. Totally doable for less than the $28 they wanted. 

Sunday, grocery shopping and more baseball watching happened. Oh, and I spent a TON of my VS Rewards--- I got 11 pair of underwear, 4 body spray, 1 mascara, 1 dry shampoo, and 1 hair spray... and still have more to spend. I also returned the blue swim bottom and the strapless bikini top and got a plain white swim bottom. The blue was SHINY, which I feel like they should tell you in the description and the my girls are too big for that style of strapless bikini. So, I now still have white floral bikini top, black/white geo top, a hot pink bottom, and a white bottom. Still able to mix and match, so that's a WIN! 

On to the Sunday baseball- if you didn't see it 5 Royals were ejected during Sunday's game versus the A's. It was hylerical. It all started Friday night. Lawrie (A's) slid dirty into our shortstop, Alcides Escobar whom was covering second- it was a wonky all over play, but the gist of it was Lawrie's spikes went into Escy's leg and Lawrie took him out, injuring his knee mildly. Watch it here... Oh, and Lawrie says he said sorry via text, but Alcides say's "bro, no you didn't." 

side note:The Royals are already sensitive they keep getting hit at bat by pitchers. So, the Royals wait until Saturday, when Yordana Ventura being mad that he just got whooped on and we are now losing deliberately hits Lawrie, thus getting revenge and ejected from the game versus being called out for letting people score on us. According to the unwritten rules of baseball, it should all now be over.  

Only no, at Sunday's game Lorenzo Cain (Royal) gets hit at bat in the first inning (on the foot, but still). So, Ned Yost (manager) and the pitching coach were ejected in the first inning for protesting that the A's pitcher gets to stay in the game. 

Then, at the top of the 8th our pitcher, Herrera, throws a ball inside on Lawrie, then at his back... effectively giving Lawrie/the A's a 100mph warning to watch himself and getting ejected in the process. Here's an awesome recap of that. 

So, both benches were cleared and our acting manager, Alcides Escobar, and another of our coaches were ejected. All in one game. Oh, and we came back to win :) 

The end on a pretty low key weekend, filled with great baseball. 

If you have any ideas on how to make the tank above or where to find a flowy, vintage looking tank for cheap online let me know! Hope you all had a great weekend too! 


  1. I was at the Sunday game! We had no idea what was going on when all the players were ejected, but we were super happy with the win!

  2. Looks like a fun, mostly baseball themed weekend!!! You really racked up with your VS points :) We do our grocery shopping on Sundays too, it is the best day to prep for the week ahead. Hope you have a great week!

  3. We both got some baseball in this weekend!! So glad your team got the Win!!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  4. Nobody loves the Royals like YOU love the royals!! That is how dedicated my Husband is to Padre's baseball. It all makes me snooze ;)

  5. Glad your tram pulled out a win! I was a pitcher when I played Softball and I never intentional hit someone. That is crazy they seem to be playing tit for tat hitting players. Not good.

  6. if you figure out how to make that tank without a silk screen, LET ME KNOW. i need to make my own douchey tanks instead of having to (grudgingly) dish out the $30 for them :(

  7. Sounds like a great weekend! I miss living in a city with a baseball team. Have a great rest of the week!


I'm excited you're here. Leave me a message so that we can be excited together!
