Week in Revew: April 4th (with a teaser for an amazing vintage giveaway!)

Yesterday the family and I made a trip to see a minor league baseball game. Here's a little fact about me: I love baseball. Love love love. However, let me make it clear that I am not one of those rabid fans who can quote obscure stats off the top of their head; I don't collect cards or engage in time-sucking fantasy leagues (wave the the husband and his little hobby;) and I make all attempts to avoid endless hours spent watching ESPN like some kind of couch-surfing zombie. I am not that kind of fan.

Rather, I am the fan that likes going to the games, and participating in all the delightful activities that one can only experience watching baseball in a stadium. Like wearing ugly oversized polyester jerseys and eating hot dogs and drinking beer outdoors at 3 pm and singing the national anthem with 20,00 other people at the top of your lungs and heckling those stupid, obviously blind umpires about their ridiculously bad calls, um HELLO FIRST BASE UMPIRE, ARE YOU FREAKIN' BLIND OR SOMETHING 'CAUSE MY SEVEN YEAR-OLD COULD MAKE BETTER CALLS. I can even tolerate the occasional game on TV but only if the Texas Rangers or Yankees are playing. Actually, baseball is basically the only sport I can watch on the TV, unlike my husband, who prefers to turn on golf and transform our home into some time of energy-sucking vortex. Is there anything more boring than watching golf on TV? I think not.

Our local team is the Frisco Roughriders (Roughriders as in cowboys...get your mind out of the gutter) and their stadium is much smaller than those of major league ball teams, which is kind of nice - it puts you front and center with all the action.

While I'm reminiscing over fond memories of cheering on the Roughriders and dreaming of public daydrinking, here's what went down on Dress With Courage this week:

I'd also like to take a moment and welcome all my new followers (wave!) Thank you for your continued support and thoughtful comments. I really love reading what you share (even though I don't always respond...bad me.) I have no doubt that I have some the most intelligent readers out there!

And as a little celebration for reaching 150 followers this week, I'm having a giveaway to one of my favorite vintage stores this week!

  1. Sounds like your baseball outing was fun! I love going out to Frisco for the FC Dallas games [soccer] and I love being at live sporting events, too, even though I can watch them on TV. There's just something about being there...


I love my readers! Comments are welcomed and appreciated.
