Last night took me to my very first Major League Baseball game.
The lovely Amanda from Eats, Love and Happiness organized a blogger meet-up at last night’s Nationals versus Cardinals game.
I’ve been trying to meet up with her for a long time, but our schedules never aligned so it was nice to finally put a face to the blog.
She’s a doll and a great planner. I love people who love to plan. Although lately I’m constantly late to things due to my lack of understanding of DC traffic and the metro – Amanda still waited for me in the not amazing weather with my ticket. So sweet!
I kind of wanted a hot dog, but my stomach was still a little off, so I went with the next best thing – fries in a box!
I had a small box of fries with chipotle ketchup and a Miller Lite. Dinner of champions right there.
I’d like to say that I’m going to become a hardcore Nats fan (they won last night, heyo!), but I didn’t really pay all that much attention to the game – there were just too many fun people to talk to!
I think there were seventeen bloggers in attendance? Awesome! Thanks to Stephanie for providing the above picture!
I caught up with Megan, who actually moved here one week before me. We both just started new jobs and living on our own, so we had a lot to talk about and compare.
The weather wasn’t ideal, at times pouring rain, but we were mainly covered from the elements.
It was a lovely evening! I can’t believe how many DC-area bloggers there are.
Even though the game went into extra innings, we left after the ninth. Several of us metroed together and I forced them all to take awkward metro pictures. I’m still basically a tourist, after all.
I made a random guy take our picture on the train. I have no shame. Plus, we had to wait for 15 minutes so there was nothing else to do.
Besides chat, that is. Turns out Allison lives three metro stops from me in Arlington so we had a chance to get to know each other and I didn’t get lost on the metro. Score!
It was another night of not getting to bed until after midnight. Sleep? What’s that?
I actually got up and worked out this morning somehow. First real workout since Monday morning. I’ll take it.
I left the gym a bit early because traffic in Tyson’s was supposed to be really bad, but my commute today was only 20 minutes. It was a record! Surely that’s a good omen for the weekend, right?
Are you a baseball fan? Who do you root for?
