Happy Monday, my friends! I appreciate Mondays for the fact that they get me back on schedule – Back to the weekday grind of early workouts, dinners at home, and a 10PM bedtime 😉
This weekend we headed up to Northern Virginia to surprise our friend Bobby for his twenty-something birthday! His girlfriend, Whitney, wins Girlfriend of the Year and made plans weeks in advance for us to come visit and spend the afternoon at a National’s game.
While baseball isn’t something I’d normally watch on TV, there is something great about being at the ball park. People watching is prime, hotdogs are a necessity, and usually a little sun on the shoulders is nice.
Oh yeah, and the actual baseball game part can be fun, too 😉
The thing is – Saturday was 110 degrees and we were sitting in left field with the sun beating down on us. Long gone was the desire to watch people or eat hotdogs. I could only think of survival.
Which, of course, I found inside at the bar.
Cory and Bobby were troopers, Whitney withstood the heat longer than I could, and I was a diva.
When my underwear becomes a sweat sponge, all bets of faking it are off. Thank GOD I have good friends and a good husband who like me even when I’m not smiling.
For an example of the sheer heat that we were exposed to: As we got out of our car and started walking towards the stadium, within minutes, I said to Cory, Oh my gosh, oh my gosh – something’s wrong. My FEET are BURNING!
I think I’ll wear rubber flip flops next time it’s as hot as hell outside – thin leather ones are apparently quite dangerous! 😉
Let’s chat – What was the best part of your weekend? It was so great to be able to see Bobby and Whitney!
