    Musings: We All Scream for (the SF Museum of ) ICE CREAM

    I paid $45 for 250 photos. Seriously, if you want colorful social media images OR you are a child, this place is probably for you. Anything else, you might want to go to a different “museum.” mu·se·um (noun) – a building in which objects of historical, scientific, artistic, or cultural interest are stored and exhibited. google.com I heard a statistic that the Museum of Ice Cream was the most socially shared museum ever. Don’t quote me on that, but it struck me as odd. Then as I was discussing this stat with a good friend I remembered, from Italy, that all the larger, foreign historic museums don’t allow you to…

    Musings: Pitchers & Catchers

    My favorite two words in February! This day is most important because it truly signifies the START of the baseball season. Pitchers and catchers are officially required to report today, but pretty much everyone comes now too. And in case you aren’t too much in to baseball, each team designates their own Pitchers & Catchers reporting day, BUT I’m only worried about when my boys are in Arizona! My men in Orange && Black are B A C K! As the rumors of Harper keep filling my feed, I am not holding my breath. So many changes happening it seems like its all a little chaotic. Oracle Park will ALWAYS be…

    Race Recap: The Giant Race 10k

    The Giants may be having an AWFUL year, but their racing series is NOT! Ahh, to be so happy to run and support your team who is having the worst season (possibly) ever is humbling! Regardless of their current league standing, thousands flocked to San Francisco this weekend to show their support. Putting one foot in front of another for 3.1 miles, 6.2 miles, or 13.1 miles, we showed our spirit and love for our FAVORITE team! Lil and I committed to being Triple Baggers this year, which means we ran the Rivercats 5k, San Jose Giants 5 miler, and we finished it with the SF Giant Race 10k. These…

    Vlogging For A Day + Hamilton

    I’m young, scrappy, and hungry… …just like my Country. But still not comfortable recording myself and posting it. Okay, let me step back here a second and say I can easily turn the camera around for a selfie. I can easily get animated for a Boomerang. BUT what I’m talking about is recording myself. My voice. My weird facial expressions. My everything. That scares me. I’m in awe of those who can record themselves so naturally, because it DOES NOT come naturally to me. At. All. I don’t have much experience or dedication to the vlogging world, but I do know it exists. A friend was recently showing me a…

    Musings: Pitchers && Catchers A N D FanFest

    Blogger FAIL, this was supposed to be posted yesterday // 2.13.17… Everyone is excited about GALentines, but it’s all about PITCHERS & CATCHERS reporting TODAY! via sfgiants.com I’m all about celebrating women, which is today….BUT…I can’t hide my excitement for Baseball season! Fan Fest for my beloved SF Giants was this weekend, which only heightened my excitement level. As we came down from the high of seeing our favorite humans and being in our home away from home, we didn’t have to let our low get too low. Because only two short days later is today, when our pitchers and catchers report to Arizona for Spring Training. Now, we all…

    Musings: A Day Trip to Reset

    He knows where I need to go when I’m feeling stagnant… …or just need a reset. I had that feeling and I expressed it to J, so he planned a quick little day trip to the City for us. I didn’t realize, but he had planned for us to hike, but the weather had a different idea. He gave me two places to chose from, but I wasn’t feeling decisive so I told him to pick. We got up, got lazy, and took a little longer than we had planned (to leave). All good, though. We swung by Sbux so I could grab a coffee, on our way out of…

    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…

    A Day in the City

    Are DAYcations still a thing? Or is that an old term? Anyway, us lucky Sacramentans can basically go in any direction for about an hour and half (give or take fifteen minutes, not including traffic) and find ourselves in a place that is completely opposite of Sacramento.  A free Sunday, barely ever happens. My craving for Vitamin Sea is forever there, so when there was NOTHING on the calendar we took advantage of it. We thought maybe we forgot about something, but alas we didn’t. No soccer. No baby shower. No bridal shower. No birthday. No wedding. Nada, just a day of J and I exploring and spending time being…

    Musings: Not Starting

    My blogger dream could have been a reality… …but I wasn’t selected! I was crushed. That might be a slight exaggeration, but it still stings. The SF Giants started a new blogger ‘Starting Nine’ for their Giant Race series. When I saw their FB post asking for people to apply, I was seriously the happiest girl ever that day! And stopped everything that moment and applied. I probably should have spent a little more time on the application, looking back. There’s that hindsight again, always there to remind me! Anywho, the application was very simple, with a few questions to answer and you also had to list your Social Media…

    New Year, New Adventures

    Ending 2015 with a grateful heart champs and starting 2016 cursing the champs! Normally, my entire family gets together for the first day of the year. But this year they all decided to travel…all to the same city, apparently! HAHA! This means that we were left to our own devices. It felt really odd, because my family has a party every holiday and we just didn’t this year…out of nowhere. So, knowing that, I planned a fun little day trip to the City (San Francisco, for those that don’t use this lingo) for J and I. Eater SF and Yelp were awesome in helping me plan a few activities for…
