My Experience of Attending the 2018 World Series

Some of y’all may or may not have noticed that I’ve been MIA for a good part of October. One word: BASEBALL. My husband and I took a little impromptu vacation at the end of October to go to Los Angeles, California to go to the World Series. It was kind of last minute but we were glad to get away, especially to some warmer weather. My husband was especially excited to go back to California, since he was born there and lived in El Segundo growing up. My husband fondly remembers going to Dodgers games when he was little.

Even though we were there a short amount of time, we ate at many local restaurants and had a great time. Whenever we visit somewhere, I always love seeing it from a local’s perspective, instead of a tourist’s perspective. We stayed in El Segundo and Manhattan Beach, and mostly explored those two areas. I would love to live there someday!

Weekend Reading: Volume IV

I’ve been seriously MIA the past two weeks or so, because… BASEBALL. That was the main source me putting off blogging for both of my blogs. I didn’t want to be distracted. I actually wanted to watch the entire games. I had posts written and scheduled ahead of time, but I just never quite hit publish. However, this weekend, I’m going to make things happen.

Regarding baseball, first it was the regular season. It then was the NLDS, and after that it was the NLCS, and then the World Series. My husband and I even booked a flight to Los Angeles, even before the NLCS began on the off chance the Dodgers made it to the World Series. Well, they once they won the NLCS, we bought two tickets to one of the World Series games. We all know how that turned out… I don’t want to talk about it.

The trip was short. We were only there basically three days, but it was a fun mini-vacay! Now that I’m back home in Lexington and baseball season is over, I’m trying to get back into the groove of things with Fabulous and Fayette and Grits & Glam.

Picking Apples at Eckert’s Boyd Orchard in Lexington, Kentucky

The temperature seriously went from 90 to 55 like it saw a state trooper. About two weeks ago, it was almost 90 and by the end of the week it was around 70 degrees. Once the weekend came, it was around 50 degrees, if not colder. That was a nice day of fall we had. Hence, one day. Luckily, it’s warmed up since that day and is in the mid to upper 60s.

Since it’s that time of year, my husband and I made it out to Eckert’s Boyd Orchard in Versailles, Kentucky to pick some apples. Last fall, we decided to add this to our yearly fall traditions. There’s nothing like picking your own apple from the trees. It’s just more fun that way!

Weekend Reading: Volume III

Can you believe we’ve made it through another week?

I’m so glad that it’s the weekend, because that means I’m a week closer to my big plans at the end of this month! I’ll be sure to share soon!

I didn’t mean to take this week off, but things happen, you know? I’ve been watching every NLCS game (National League Championship Series – Dodgers vs. Brewers, of course!), so that’s taken a lot of my time! The game on Tuesday went 13 innings and lasted almost 6 hours. Living in the Eastern Time Zone has its downfalls, because it didn’t actually end until after 2am since they had the late game.

I’m planning on using this weekend to get ahead of my blogging game, because I know next week will be even crazier!

15 Scary AF Movies You’ve Probably Never Heard Of That You Should Watch This Halloween

It’s no secret that I looooooove the fall! Fall brings so many exciting things – cool weather, fall fashion, everything apple and pumpkin, bonfires, and Halloween. With Halloween coming up soon, it’s the perfect excuse to have multiple scary movie marathons on repeat until November 1 (because we all know what happens then… Hallmark Christmas movie season!)

My best friend and I love scary movies. Every time we have a girl day, we plan to watch at least one or two scary movies. My husband doesn’t like scary movies all that much, but my girl, Rika, does, so we have made it our thing. When we watch scary movies, we always try to watch the indie films or the lesser known ones that the majority of people have never heard of. We just think that makes it a lot more fun, and many of those movies are even scarier. They just don’t have the notoriety as the mainstream horror movies that are released in theaters.
