Cheering For The Home Team

Father daughter date was a success!

Unfortunately the Rays lost but it still was a lot of fun!
We caught a quick bite at a local Thai restaurant down the street pre-game. I had my favorite, Basil Tofu….extra spicy!

I was having a serious Thai craving and this tasted awesome!
We had great seats at the game, courtesy of Ryan’s parents, and it was really neat to sit so close to the field. I tried to catch foul balls on several occasions but with no avail. 🙁



Around the 4th innning, my dad got a beer and I got DIPPIN DOTS! I always get dippin dots at baseball games—I love ’em!

Just got home and am about to get in my jammies. I’m exhausted!
My profile was featured tonight on the Murphy-Goode facebook page!! Eeek! Can’t believe that a week from right now I’ll be in Healdsburg!!!!!

    Too bad you had to see a losing game! I always hate it when that happens. Did you stay to see Smash Mouth?

    That’s so exciting you’re on their facebook page!!! I’m so happy for you girly 🙂

    I haven’t been to a rays game in FOREVER. I wonder if they’re gonna end up tearing down the Trop.. I hope they don’t 🙁 They should put that money into revamping The Pier! It used to be one of my favorite places to visit. Have a great day tomorrow! <3

    I am SO jealous that all these restaurants in your town seem to serve tofu–I can’t seem to find a single tofu-serving eatery in all of Alabama!

    A baseball game is not a baseball game without an ice cold beer! Glad you had fun though.

    What a fun date! You are so very lucky to be so close to your dad. My in-laws got rained out while golfing today also! We arrived at their house to see all their golfbags lying in front of fans in their garage.

    You and your dad are adorable. Sounds like you two had a nice evening.
    I was supposed to go out for a Thai dinner with a friend last night but I had to bail after the adventure we just went through with D – I needed to get to bed early. Can you recommend a healthy soy free dish that I can be on the lookout for? I have never been to a Thai restaurant but my friend is a huge fan. Good luck next week, you will do great. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    I love a night at the ballpark, and I’m so happy that you can spend quality time with both of your parents. It’s a blessing to live so close. It seems like you have a special bond with them.

    Basil tofu sounds awesome. I may have to recreate it for my honey and me.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

    I love going to baseball games!! My boyfriend and his father get season tickets to Yankee games and I go sometimes! It’s so much fun!!
    I also love Dippin Dots! I almost got some on the boardwalk last night but decided on grapes instead.
