    Musings: Today, It’s Baseball Time…

    SF Giants BASEBALL to be exact. Not ideally where I’d like to start the season, but just happy it’s STARTING! Just in case you don’t follow the G-men and/or baseball, the SF Giants will be starting the 2018 MLB season against the Dodgers in LA. I  feel gross even writing their name :/ But, it’s not anything we (Giants fans) have control over. The home opener is on April 3, so we have that to look forward to, too! I was lucky enough to get a little taste of the G-men, early…even though no AZ this year 🙁 The fam and I went to the annual Sacramento Rivercats vs the…

    Race Recap: The Giant Race 10k

    I may be a crappy Giants fan this year… …but I wouldn’t miss this race! Literally, this was the first time I’ve been to AT&T Park this year. I’m really starting to feel like a faux Giants fan. Yes, I follow the games via my App and watch as many as I can catch (since we don’t have cable), but I haven’t been a physical supporter like normal. It kinda makes me sad. Anywho, that’s besides the point of me running this race. As every year goes, I make (re: ask and she always says yes) Lil run this race with me. To my surprise, J said he wanted to…

    Race Recap: The Giant Race 10k

    My team > Your team Via Just sayin’! It’s only the sixth annual SF Giant Race. It seems like it’s been around longer than that, but I guess my time perception is always off. I think it is amazing that the SF Giants put together three different fun runs for their organization and farm teams (Scottsdale, San Jose, and SF). That being said, I cannot believe this is my first race recap for this race, even though I’ve been running it for a few years now (missed 2013 & 2014). I’m also wishing and praying that now that the Sacramento Rivercats are their AAA team, maybe they’ll think of hosting…

    Five Things Friday – Donut Worry, Be Happy

    Donut even tell me you don’t know today is… National Donut Day!! Line out the door, but I still got two dozen 🙂 A little pun fun for the office! @heygirlhill tagged me in @meghanpaigetarry’s IG  – so worthy of a repost! I’m feeling all sorts of content… Thanks, Clare! …and NOT because it’s all about the donuts today! Every week has it challenges and opportunities, this week just seems to be one of those good ones. I think it’s because I’m getting back into my workout routine and incorporating running. I know my ‘fluff’ won’t go away overnight, but I can appreciate working hard toward see it melt away…slowly……

    Thinking Out Loud – My Tomboy Side is Showing

    When my tomboy side shows… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. A week of sporty musings, yup! Pushing aside my girly tenancies and keeping it sporty up in here! It wasn’t intentional, until I started working on this post, it just came to be that way. I won’t fight it, I will embrace the sports-loving girl that I am and go with it. So, I don’t blame you if you don’t read on any further. Without further ado… Home Sweet Yard // Every single time I get a chance to get to the Yard, you better believe that I will go. Needless to say, when Poppa Bear asked if I wanted…

    Thinking Out Loud – My First Game of the Season

    The SF Giants are everything (insert hands up emoji)! Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. On Monday, I posted on FB, that I was already in love with this week. And it was NOT a lie! This week has been progressively been getting better and I can’t stop smiling today! Yesterday was my first SF Giants game of the 2015 season. And it did NOT disappoint one bit. From the road trip there, to the tailgating, to the actual game, to my sleepy ride home. Feeling completely blessed and grateful today! You should basically expect a post like this every single season, here’s last year’s post for my first game…such good…

    Gamer Babe – The Basics

    America’s Pastime is for the ladies too… Via Yup, I’m talkin’ baseball today, ladies (and gentlemen)! 7th Inning Stretch – Kasey At The Bat Thanks to Poppa Bear, I’ve bled Orange && Black from the beginning. Born and raised a SF Giants fan, I will forever love my team. I played softball from six to eight years of my life (I’m not actually sure how long), so I know the basics and some of the strategy of the game. I am making a small comparison to softball and baseball here, when I say I understand the game, don’t get your panties (isn’t that word so vile?) in a bunch! I…

    Five Things Friday – Be Happy!

    Smiling…for no reason! Thanks, Clare! Not that it should be a bad thing, but I’m in a great mood today. I guess, sometimes I feel bad for being so happy and content with my life. There are so many ugly things happening, in addition to hurt and pain, and I’m sitting here smiling at what I have and what surrounds me. So today, I will only post 5 Things that Are Making Me Happy and keep it to just that: 1. National Sibling Day — Today is that day. If you’ve been around these parts at all, then it’s not really important that I remind you how amazing it is…

    WIAW – Vacay Before the Vaycay Eats

    Comin’ at you live from the island…  Thanks, Jenn! Blogging has been a little on the harder side this week. With a Holiday on Monday and officially being on vaycay starting yesterday means I haven’t been a good blogger. So I’m here squeezing in a WIAW because I had an amazing weekend before my vacation and I thought I’d share 🙂 Friday: Worked a half day and then went on a mini day-cation with the Boy. First stop was to grab something to eat before we left for our day-cation! Had to try, especially since it was a personal size bag. Verdict: GROSS Roxie’s Deli // Shared Meatloaf Sando and…

    5 Things Friday – Orange && Black

    Sometimes being a SF Giants fan is heartbreaking… Thanks, Clare! …other times it amazing. Seriously, my boys in Orange && Black love to keep us on an emotional roller coaster. Pre all-star-break they were killin’ it, although those pesky Dodgers were close behind. Now, I’m celebrating them ending a six game loosing streak! Gah! They break my heart on a continual basis, but I guess that’s how it goes as a Giants fan! I honestly, wouldn’t have it any other way. A day/evening spent at the Yard is magical. So, I thought I’d convince show you, you should love my boys and AT&T Park, just as much as I do!…
