Can of Corn: Favorite Ballparks

I know I've said it before, but I swear I'm about to get really back into the blog-o-sphere, because #kaseybuysahouse IS HAPPENING. Until I get all of that sorted out, I will probably be shady still. HOWEVER. You can count on me for the monthly baseball linkup no matter what! This month we're talking ballparks!

Okie dokie! I'm just the co-host, P.J. is the brains behind the operation, so here are the rules guidelines for Can of Corn!
  • Write about baseball using the theme (or not) on the dates provided (or thereabout) from March-October. Just make it baseball!
  • Use the button in your post somewhere (at the end or whatever) and link back to me + P.J. 
  • Go to one of our blogs the day this comes up (or thereafter) and linkup! The linkup will be "live" for a week after the date.
  • Visit other blogs, read, comment, and make some new baseball pals!
  • Have a cold beer (because let's be real, anything I'm involved in involves a cold beer...)

NOW BALLPARKS. I know we've covered that my experience in major league parks is limited to four (er five if you count Atlanta Fulton County and Turner Field as separate...) : Turner Field, AT&T, Chase Field, and whatever they're calling the Texas Rangers' park these days.. Nothing really stood out to me about Ranger ballpark, sorry Texas... I really liked the roof at Chase (I had a chance to see the ballpark with the roof open AND closed. like, best of both worlds man.) Even though it was frigid, I loved that the bay is right behind the outfield at AT&T. OBVIOUSLY I have some deep loyalty to the Ted. 

HOWEVER! I am going to add two, yes two, new ballparks to my list (er. check them off my list?) at the end of July! I'm going to visit Jen and catching an O's game AND a gNats game! Two birds, one plane ticket. SO it happens to fall two weeks after we talk about our dream baseball road trips, but you know I won't be doing that much driving anyways. 

I have been to my fair share of MiLB parks -- but my favorite MiLB park has most to do with the experiences there rather than the ballpark itself. not to say a lot of my blood, sweat, and tears aren't a part of that park now. I'd still pick Recreation Park or whatever they're calling the park that the Rawhide play in now. That was my first job out of college, my first time living more than two hours from my parents. My first time on my own. There were a lot of ups and downs but man did I love it. 

NOW it's your turn! What are your favorite ballparks? I know you're surprised that I haven't been to many, being the biggest baseball fan you know, but I'm working on it.

The World Needs More Wine Hashtags

FIRST THING IS FIRST. I hit 1,000 followers on the gram so Elle Talk + I are celebrating with a giveaway on said gram. Then we got to talking about how there isn't a list of boozy hashtags. Now, two of my favorite parts about hashtags are that they help you group your pictures together and they bring people of like activities together. SO here I am, with some of my favorite boozy hashtags. 

I just discovered this one yesterday -- #yeswayrose HOW DID I NOT THINK OF THAT? (side note, I have that thought a lot. beer koozies, insulated stemless wine glasses with lids, the likes..)

I honestly started this as a post for boozy hashtags, but I've decided to focus on wine this time. Halfway through... Because you know what that's how blogging works. I've decided that there should be more than one so we can focus on the best kinds of booze and you guys can help me find more! Since we're focused on wine, I also love #winenot

Last but certainly not least, #lemmewineaboutit -- I'm not sure I want to share, because it's currently exclusively my wine photos. I guess y'all could all join in.

Also, I really wanted to embed the hashtag feeds, why isn't that a thing Instagram? I mean, not that my wine gifs aren't fun, but come on man. ANYWAYS. don't forget to head over to the gram + help me celebrate 1K! Do you have any boozy hashtags I should be using? I was a little disappointed to find there aren't that many yet, maybe we're just in time to start our own! Are you going to join me with #lemmewineaboutit ??

SO. Baseball memories. I have so so so many. You know, a lifetime of them duh. My all time favorite events working for teams were definitely anything firework related. I love fireworks guys. I could see a show every night of the week + still love them. I am just a giant 7 year-old. Even when I was in Cali + we had to pick up the pieces of the fireworks after the show, I loved every second of it.
ALSO two summers ago I got to see WEEZER which was pretty kickass. I'm excited for the lineup the Braves have this year too. Post game concerts are so fun because you get a whole ball game and then some! Plus. A free Weezer concert comeON. admit it, Buddy Holly is stuck in your head now...
Also also any and all post season games I've ever been to. Sometimes I get chills just thinking about them. I don't want to post any of those pictures though because it just bums me out man. The whole "worst start in Atlanta ever" is really harshing my vibe. SO cheer me up! Join us with your favorite baseball memories!!! I can't wait to read all of the stories!
