And just like that, the guy I fell in love with at 20 is now 28! Happy Birthday, Dominic!
To celebrate we used our tickets from ScoreBig to catch a Mariners game last week on a Seattle date night. We attempted to hit the ballpark food favorites, most of which disappointed, but we did see some Seahawks draft picks, so that made up for it! Dominic even got retweeted by one of them!
We bickered on the drive because I made us late and what good date doesn’t have a minor fight? We’re not the only ones, right? This marriage thing is still so tough sometimes! After finding decent parking and walking into the stadium all was well again — I mean, our seats were really close to the Dippin’ Dots stand so who wouldn’t be happy?
Yes, if you haven’t yet guessed my intentions on going to the game … f-o-o-d.
The Astros played the M’s. And won thanks to a whole bunch of runs in the 8th inning. Dominic assumed this would happen because King Felix wasn’t pitching. It was throwback night so everything was 70’s theme, which I enjoyed. Can you guess how much Dominic and I have in common when it comes to sports? I’ll toss this batting average at ya — .148. That equates to about nothing. He’s an avid fan, understands it all and soaks up the plays. I, on the other hand, am all about the EXPERIENCE … snacks, outfits, conversation. We make quite the pair :)
I told him next birthday he could take a friend instead, but he said he’d pick me again, because even though I annoying talk through the whole game and ask the same questions I asked at the prior game, I’m still the most fun.
He’s pretty fun himself … and I’m sure blessed to be celebrating another birthday with him. Here’s to many more!
