One of the great things about living in Seattle is that there is ALWAYS tons of stuff to do. For most of my life I’ve lived in smaller cities a couple hours away from Seattle so going to the Emerald City required planning and was an all day event. Well, on Monday I decided that I wanted to go to a baseball game after work so I called up the BF and that’s just what we did. Go spontaneity!
I’ve always been a Mariners fan and even though they have been less than fantastic for some time now, I can’t help but love them. Going to their games reminds me of their glory days in the mid 90′s when the Mariners were awesome and had players like Edgar Martinez, Randy Johnson, Dan Wilson, and of course, the legend, Ken Griffy Jr. As a kid I was a little leaguer who was terrible at baseball, could quote The Sandlot and Angels in the Outfield like no other, and had waaay too much team memorabilia. Yep, there will always be a special place in my heart for the Seattle Mariners.
Since I decided to go to the game spur of the moment, I couldn’t plan ahead and wear team colors, but it was a bright and sunny day which was perfect for debuting the Five Bamboo Hopscotch Dress! What do you think? Perfect for a day at the ballpark, right?!
We decided to sit in the cheap seats and still had a great time. Peanuts, garlic fries and cold beer were aplenty and even though it wasn’t the most exciting game, the Mariners came from behind to win in the 9th inning!
