Today was a super Sunday.  It’s opening weekend at Comerica Park in Detroit so Todd and I went with some friends to the Tigers’ game today.  It was seriously the most perfect day.  All week they had been calling for rain but this afternoon the sun was shining and, believe it or not, it was hot.  I love warm weather and I did not mind the 80 degree weather at all.  I was so happy just to be outside on such a gorgeous day.

Of course, ballpark food is always one of my favorite parts of game days.  I had a hot dog, an ice cold lemonade and split a bag of peanuts with Todd.  Exactly the right combo.

The Tigers lost to the Royals today but it was so much fun to spend the day at the game, enjoying our friends and the beautiful day.

After the game, Todd and I went to IKEA to look for some things for our newlywed apartment.  We’re moving May 1st, the Sunday before our wedding so we thought it would be a good idea to pick up a few things before then so the apartment would be a little more ready for us post-honeymoon.

When we were done there we met up with our friends Justin and Krista for dinner at The Prickly Pear Cafe in Ann Arbor.  They had been at the game with us but were all the way down the row so it was really nice to be able to catch up with them over dinner.

After eating my fair share of chips and salsa, I decided on the Vegetarian Sweet Potato Enchiladas.  I really like sweet potatoes so I couldn’t pass this dish up and I’m so glad I didn’t, it was delicious!

I don’t really think of sweet potato as a Mexican food and I love when Mexican restaurants offering interesting choices with unique ingredients.  Oh and the squash salsa on top was a great addition.  Good work, Prickly Pear!

Today was a really nice day.  It’s always good to get out town and spend time with friends, we were lucky to spend the first gorgeous day of the year together.  And honestly, it was nice to have a day where I wasn’t thinking of or doing anything for the wedding.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the planning and preparation process but it was nice to step away from that for a whole day as well.

I hope everyone else had an awesome Sunday and that it was nice and warm wherever you are!

How did you spend this amazing day?

opening day

Today is Opening Day for the MLB. This is a big day at our house because Todd loves baseball. I love going to baseball games. I like baseball. See, I’ve learned that the thing about baseball is that in-season, someone is always playing. If you’re Todd, or other baseball fanatics, this is the best thing. If you’re me, it’s just the thing.

I’m prepared though. Yes, I might get sick of the constant feed of baseball games that will be showing every night in my living room for the next 6 months but it’s going to happen whether I like it or not. I choose to like it.

In that spirit, I wore a Detroit Tigers-inspired outfit to work today.

Notice the navy cardigan and orange head scarf.  Subtle but festive, my favorite kind of theme clothing.

The Tigers lost their first game today but I have faith in them. Here’s to a great season. Go Tigers!
