Oakland Athletic's

Hi Friends!

First things first, Happy April! Did March just fly by or what? I am still trying to catch my breath from all the activities that I took part in throughout last month, it was such a great month though, so I'm not complaining! March was definitely the month of trying new things, experiencing new places, and watering current relationships/friendships with people that are close to my heart! 

Speaking of April, it's officially my birthday month *breaks out in dance*; April 15th, I turn 21! I'm actually really looking forward to it this year for the pure fact that I'm starting another year of my life with a bang! You can look forward to flower crowns and handcrafted white lace dresses to start off my year of officially 21! I can't wait, it's gonna me a good one! 

For those of you unfamiliar and not following me on social media, Nathaniel and I decided to spend our spring break in his hometown, Berkeley, CA; we're just wrapping up the two day drive as of today, we will be back home (just in time to watch the opening day for the Oakland Athletic's)! While in Berkeley, I had the pleasure of getting to know the place he called home growing up, it's quite fascinating to see the world in a different light, wouldn't you agree? We spent a whole week running around, trying to fit in everything we could do into our schedule, needless to say, we're a little tired and drained (in a good way), I definitely wouldn't have changed it for the world though! I have a whole vlog coming next week with our daily adventures and highlights from this trip, we can't wait to share it with you! 

As for today, I wanted to share with you our last full day in this beautiful city, experiencing one of Nathaniel's favorite pastimes growing up, baseball; the Oakland Athletic's to be exact! I've always loved watching sports, I was involved in quite a few throughout my high school career as well, but growing up in a small town, we didn't have baseball as an option for school sports so I never got to know the sport well enough. For my first game we visited the Oakland stadium to watch the Athletic's play the San Francisco Giants for the last day of training season. You could say I was pretty excited, I love being around people who are passionate about sports, people who really get into it; it get's me excited and loving every second of it! It was such a beautiful day with the sun shining high and bright, the perfect day for a game! 

We enjoyed lunch before the game at the Shibe Park Tavern, where we had the most scenic view of the whole field and players warming up before the game! We headed to our seats after eating, we were right behind the home base, almost front row seats! It was definitely the best view of everything going on! 

Even though I don't know much about the sport, I am looking forward to learning all there is to know, with Nathaniel's help of course! Tonight is also opening day for the Oakland Athletics's, which I'm actually really excited for! If you need me, I'm be wrapped up in my team gear cheering on the team with Nathaniel! I'm always up for learning new things! Do you guys have a favorite team, or if you're not into baseball, what sport does your family really get into? 

Until next time!



  1. I agree! Where is the time going?! How is it April already! (Not that I am complaining, I am so ready for spring!) Looks like you had a lovely break! And yay for birthday month! :) XOXO

  2. How awesome! It looked like so much fun! I grew up about an hour from Oakland so I grew up watching them too!

  3. I can't believe it's already April either, the year is going by so quickly! Happy early birthday! :)
