It’s FRIDAY!! but first… a Wednesday Night Recap
Wednesday night Neal and I met up to see the Washington Nationals play the Cincinnati Reds at Nationals Park. I love going to baseball games. 3 years ago I bought season tickets to the Nationals and was a ticket holder for two years. I decided not to renew this past year, as graduate school tends to take up most of my free evenings. Next year is a different story though! To me, watching baseball is the perfect way to spend a summer night.
Neal and I also love date nights at the ballpark because it’s where we had our first date!
best part only downside to the ballpark is the fattening food. Instead of being tempted by the hotdogs, fries, and ice cream I decided to pack my dinner and bring it to the ballgame. Wednesday morning I made a sandwich, packed some grapes, and a diet cream soda… I was set!
As I workout before work most days, I pack my Vera Bradley tote each morning with my work clothes, toiletries, lunch bag, and purse (pretty much it’s my bag to carry my bags)…so when I went to the game Wednesday night my tote came with me. For the first time ever, I was told my bag was too large to bring into the park so I ended up checking my bag at guest services. I totally could have taken my lunch bag out of my tote but I was too embarrassed to carry my lunch bag around the park. Instead, I had a hotdog and shared some fries with Neal. Probably not the best decision.
Neal was pretty happy though!
Although the Nationals lost, we had a wonderful time at the ballpark!
This weekend, Neal and I are traveling up to Philadelphia so that I can attend the Healthy Living Summit! I didn’t think I was going to be able to attend, but then someone who was unable to attend offered to sell me her ticket. Although I’m sad she couldn’t attend, I am so excited to be attending this summit.
I am looking forward to meeting some fellow bloggers, to learning from some of the best, and to listening to some amazing quest speakers! I will strive to blog as much as possible this weekend and can’t wait to share what I have learned with everyone!
Healthy Living Summit Itinerary
- Friday night cocktail party
- Classes, speakers, and panels throughout the day on Saturday
- 5K run/walk Sunday morning
- Farewell breakfast sponsored by Quaker Sunday morning
Neal and I are also looking forward to having another ” cheesesteak challenge” while we’re in Philly. Last year, in the Pat’s vs. Geno’s battle Pat’s won, so this year we’re having a Pat’s vs. Tony Luke’s battle. It’s going to be epic!
Have you been to a conference of this nature? Do you have any advice for me? What questions would you like me to ask while I am there?
