Fifteen


Yes, fifteen. 15.

That's the number of runs I got to watch the Reds score this past Friday night. They absolutely embarrassed the Nationals 15-0! Between that, a drunk fan running onto the field and sliding into second base, Jared getting on the jumbotron, and post-game fireworks…. I don't think that game can be topped! I told Jared we're just going to be disappointed at any other baseball game we go to this year!! ;)

Yes, I desperately need a tan!

It definitely got chilly by the end of the night, and I'm absolutely ready for those sunny day-games soon!


And I don't care how many post-game fireworks I see, they are ALWAYS a blast :)


Aside from a fantastic baseball game, I had a pretty all-around awesome weekend. Jared had plans to hike all day with some friends (25 miles, to be exact!) so I made my own arrangements:  a hair cut with the best stylist in all of Ohio, lunch and hanging at my parents for a few hours, and then FINALLY seeing a great friend of mine, another Erin!

You might remember Erin from some of my wedding posts as she was a bridesmaid! I'm ashamed to admit it's been exactly one year since we last saw each other…. and we only live 2 hours from each other!! =\ Our friendship goal for 2013 is definitely to NOT let that happen again this year! We met up at the perfect half-way point--- some incredible outlet malls-- and did some damage together.
My best find of the day? A regularly $100 Banana Republic dress for $16 on the clearance rack. HELLO?!! I couldn't pass that up!

So overall? A solid weekend of fun, family and friends. Does life get any better???

  10. The good news is, most of us in Washington were too busy watching the Caps or looking at the Cherry Blossoms to care about what the Nats were up to :)

  28. If your friend Erin lives near where I live, I know which outlet mall you went to. I love outlet shopping!

    My husband is a HUGE Reds fan and once baseball season hits, he's usually out on the porch listening to Marty call the game.
