Birthdays, Baseball, and Stuff

Firstly, before I begin this post I just want to say thank you for all the birthday love last week! I appreciate all the birthday wishes and comments and tweets; you all know how to make me feel nice and special!

I definitely had an awesome day considering I spent it watching baseball for the Diamondbacks spring training opener vs. the Dodgers.
It was actually the first spring training I'd ever been to, which, considering how much I love baseball, is kind of weird. So, I'm making a point this year to get out to a few of them, because now I definitely see what all the fuss is about. 
The day was absolutely perfect. Sunny, low 80's, and a nice breeze. It smelled like hot dogs and fresh cut grass...separately, that is. I don't put fresh cut grass on my hot dogs, I dunno about you. And since it was my birthday I splurged and spent $10 on a sangria. And then I splurged again and spent $10 on another sangria after I finished the first one. And then I tried to pretend like I wasn't a little drunk tipsy because Nate would've made fun of me for being drunk tipsy in the middle of the afternoon.
When in Rome.

Weather you're actually in Rome or not, you'll definitely know you're in Arizona because there will be complimentary sun screen at your spring training games. Exhibit A:
It almost felt like a crime using it knowing most of you are still watching snow fall from the sky. But nonetheless, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, so I said a prayer for you all as I applied it. 
It was a good game, we beat the Dodgers which, is all I really ask for in life, and I went home one happy drunk tipsy birthday girl.
And then I got even happier that night when I had my birthday dinner with my family and my mom made mac n' cheese for me. And bundt cake for dessert. With lots of frosting. That's a helluva birthday dinner if you ask me.

In other news, I got both Tone it Up Beach Babe DVDs for my birthday
So, now with both DVDs and the Nutrition plan, all I have left to buy is the Perfect Fit Protein and I'll have the complete Tone it Up trifecta. Is it weird that I just got done telling you about my mac n' cheese and bundt cake birthday dinner and now here I am talking about workouts and nutrition plans? Ugh, I don't have a lot of faith in me either. 
Plus, my mother-in-law got me an electric wine opener for my birthday (cause she knows me too well), which means I'm gonna have to break that in too. 

When in Rome.

So with no birthday this week, I don't really have anything to look forward to. I hate when that happens. Actually, I take that back, I kind of do have something to look forward to, because this week is my last week at my job cause I went and got a new one. A new big girl job. Cause now that I'm 27, have my Master's degree, and two years of my first big girl job under my belt, I'm like officially a big girl now. 
But more on that later I suppose.

Happy Monday friends!

  1. Baseball always makes for a great birthday! That's how I've spent 4 of the last 5 birthdays! I can't believe you don't make it to more spring training games with how close you are! Make sure you hit up a couple Padres ones for me! My friends and I have been wanting to go for a few years but can't ever find the time to make it out there! Happy belated birthday!

  2. Ahh congrats on the new job!! How exciting :) I'm working on my master's degree now and I can't wait to be done and movin on up! ;) Glad you had such a great bday!! I need a set of the Tone It Up plan STAT- bikinis in less than 90 days, yikes!!

  3. I hope you love the DVDs! Let me know, let me know. I might have to invest. :)

  4. Whoa whoa whoa, too many awesome things in this post! My job was supposed to go to the Cubs/Giants game but apparently that didn't happen cause it rained. I wouldnt know because I was carrying heavy objects from one apartment to the other. ANYWAYS. I'm really glad you had a fun birthday and I love that you werent drunk just tipsy in the middle of the day.

    And its not weird to talk about cake and working out at the same time. now you can think about how delicious the cake was while you work out so that you know you can eat it later since you burned all those calories. except thats not how it works. I suck.

  5. Congrats- can't wait to hear about the new job!

  6. Complementary sunscreen? that is the craziest thing I've ever heard of! Funny

    Yay for a new job!! I like how you casually mention...can't wait to hear more

  7. I love baseball!!!! I love the games, the field, the atmosphere!!!! I really want to try the Beach Babes plan too!!!!

  8. I just went to a spring training game this weekend, too! It was the cubs though, because the friend I went with is from Chicago. Would have loved to go the Diamondbacks one! And I totally approve of the $10 sangrias...

  9. I'm so happy that you had the amazing birthday you deserved! :D

  10. I LOVE baseball. Never been to a spring training game but that looks like the best day ever. Can't wait for details of your new job!

  11. YES! SO happy to hear that your D'backs beat those horrible Dodgers!!
    So glad that you had a nice birthday girl! :)

  12. I LOVE Tone it Up! They are so amazing. I am jealous that you joined the nutrition plan. I can only afford the free workouts lol

    1. Haha, I definitely used part of our tax return! I just try and look at it as an investment ;)
