Canada Day!

I am Canadian and Canada Day just passed (as well as the 4th of July for my American followers). This year I decided I was going to take part in celebrating Canada, I had great company at the Jays game and fireworks in the evening!

Happy Belated Birthday to Me!

That’s right! My birthday was last Friday! I am officially 23..

Because I totally do this all the time I’m going to do it with my birthday, I’m going to show you what I got! I was definitely spoiled this year but I am so thankful for all the gifts, birthday wishes and the time I got to spend with people. 

Some of the gifts I won’t have up close pictures for because I’m just getting pictures off the internet but I do have one picture from Instagram with all the gifts I got so you can see them there. 

Alright so my day started off at night actually, I just worked open to close at work, was dead tired and everyone else was tired too. Everyone was sending me birthday messages the night before since we all had to work early in the morning. The day of I got up and went to work where everyone said happy birthday again, I had to work the aquafit guarding slot, it was a one guard swim but we rotate every 15 mins so we don’t get bored. I left the pool to go get the lap top for one of my instructors, while I did that my other guard told all the old ladies that it was my birthday so when I rotated back on to guard they all ended up singing happy birthday. It was pretty cool and nice thing for my guard to do for me. After when everyone else came I got birthday cupcakes, cookies and a cover for my shift! I went home to my mum and sister where I got my birthday card from my cat! My sister and mum did it, it was pretty cute and totally my cat. Slowly my family came home then we waited on my boyfriend – always a slow poke! When he finally got to my house he took my mum and I to the mall because of the gift he got me!

The red Nexus 5 cell phone! My boyfriend is the best. He got it for me because my other phone that I had was a shit box and I kept complaining about it. I helped paid for it a bit because I felt bad but he still put a lot of money into it. I’ve been taking care of my baby from now on. My bestfriend got me a case but we are still waiting for that to get here. 

After we got the phone all set up and ready to go we went to dinner at the Mandarin. My sister and step dad met us there but they took so long because my step dad got pulled over! Was pretty funny but because he was on the way to my dinner they let him go. We ate like crazy then came home to open gifts! Here come the pictures!

10 Essentials to Bring to a Baseball Game!

Hello everyone! I just came home from a Toronto Blue Jays game and I thought I haven’t written a post in a long time. Since I just came home from the game I though of the idea of what to bring to a Jays game or any game for that matter. So here it goes, lets get started.

1. Tickets. Obviously this is an important one. You cannot get into the game without this. I don’t know about other teams but I think that almost every team does this, now and days teams are so popular even if people don’t like the sport. Baseball is a game that you can go to just to enjoy a nice day at the park, drinking beer with friends; more or so a social event. I would recommend purchasing your tickets online at the teams website and printing them off at home.

2. A bag. Bags can’t be bigger then a backpack or a large purse, well that’s how it is at the Rogers Centre. When I’m at the game my bag is one of my essentials. I’m always throwing things into it or hanging hats off of it. As you’re going in they will check your bag but all they do is look into it and feel the bottom on the outside. The easiest bag to bring is a backpack or a cross body purse, but normal purses work just as well but you just leave it on the floor at your feet.

3. Camera or Cell Phone. Pictures, pictures, pictures! Cell phones work well for selfies and group photos but if you want to get pictures of the players from across the field a digital camera works best. It doesn’t have to be a big super awesome expensive camera, a simply small canon is what I use and pictures come out great.

4. Jersey. This is obvious but if you don’t have a team jersey most stores sell cheap t-shirts with the teams name now. For example, Victoria’s Secret Pink sells Toronto Blue Jays shirts.

5. Hat. It doesn’t have to be a team hat but most people wear them. If you want one and don’t want to spend a lot of money look at the teams website, they may have a promotions section and they have days where they give away hats, jersey, bobble heads and much more.

6. Sunscreen or Umbrella. Everyone who knows baseball knows the the Blue Jays play in a dome but the dome opens. On hot days if you’re not in the parts that are in the shade sunscreen will be a must. I’ve gone to a game in the sun and fried like a piece of chicken, trust me on this one. If it rains in Toronto the dome will just close but most places are outside, so when they delay the game to save the field you are left just chilling in the rain, umbrella will save you!

7. Sweater or Cardigan. I know this sounds stupid especially after I said to bring sunscreen but I freeze sometimes. The season starts early and in Toronto, Canada it’s still winter when it starts, I went to a game and didn’t take off my jacket because it was cold. In the summer on a cold, rainy day when the dome is closed they turn on the A/C full blast to make sure everyone stays cool, I get cold easily but it could help. Also a jackets for the teams that start early and don’t play in a dome this is a must if you’re crazy enough to go see them.

8. Money. Food, beer, souvenirs!  Somewhere in the park there will be a store, if you don’t have something of the teams this is a good chance but it will be a little more expensive them what it would be at a store outside the park. Most sports stores have their cities team stuff. Tim Hortons in Canada even sells Jays donuts, you will not have any problems finding what you want.

9. A good mood. You may have to wake up early and bus to the place but if you’re not in the mood to go to the game, you’re gonna have a bad time. Games are fun, be happy, have a drink, take a lot of pictures, sing the songs and do some of the fun things they have there for you.

10. Permanent Marker and Something to get Signed! Before every game you are allowed to go down to the field and one of the team mates will be signing thing. Bring your own marker and get your shirt, hat, ball signed. If you’re lucky your favorite player will be the one signing things, they also let you take their pictures with you!

Up Close Jays Game

Hi Everyone!

I know I haven’t being writing lately and it’s because I’ve been busy with work, dinners and going to Toronto Blue Jays games!

Alright I did this a couple years ago with my sister, we were literally 7 rows up from the field. This year I did it with my sister and my boyfriend and we were 36 rows up from the field, which is still pretty close then most people would get.

(This picture was taken about 30 mins before the game, just to show you how close I was!)

Alright so my day started off terrible for this day. The night before I barely slept because my boyfriend and I stayed up late watching a movie then most of the night I was up feeling like I was about to puke. When I woke up I was still feeling so bad but I got ready and went on with the day. My boyfriend bought beer the night before so we could pre-drink on the bus, we only had two beers without eating any breakfast. Yes, I was drinking at 10 am.

We get to Toronto, get breakfast at Union station and continue drinking without getting caught! Yay! I then had to go back to Ripley’s Aquarium to switch out a mug that I got that was broken. It was actually so easy, I thought they would look at my bill and say that I couldn’t because it wasn’t from today. Nope, they let me walk right in, didn’t look at anything, just switched the mug. Anyways, we get to the Rogers centre and find our gate but before we went in my boyfriend smoked like 2 smokes since you can’t inside the building. We went in a found the Jays shop where my sister and I went in, she found herself a nice hat.

We sat down in our seats to find out that there was a tall guy sitting in front of me. Now none of you know me but I’m only five foot three, so this guy was in my way of the game. His daughter hated my boyfriend because he was so loud, she kept giving us dirty looks it was actually so funny. Anyways the Jays lost but it was a fun day.

After the game we met up with my boyfriends and my friends for some lunch. We went to Wayne Gretzky’s but it was an hour wait. We went into Fionn’s and they said they had a table that would sit 8 of us, we walk in to find it was 2 small bar tables. We went to Boston Pizza, it was my sister’s birthday and the guys were great at telling the waitress so they sang to her. I think that made the day complete.

On the way back home these drunk assholes were being so annoying but they said sorry when they left so it was fine. My boyfriend and I dropped my sister off and went home to pass out!

Alright that was another thing crossed off my list of things to do in 2014! Remember if any of you have any other ideas let me know! Here’s the link to list!

My cool ass uncle

December 23rd is when my cool ass uncle came over to my house like I said in a previous post. My uncle always comes to my house with donuts and coffee/hot chocolate, it’s something you get to look forward too. He is the only uncle I have that is actually so interested in what my sister and I do and will actually come with us to weird ass things that we would have no one else to go with. For years he has been trying to get Rob Zombie tickets for him and I but I always end up having a big baseball tournament when he comes to my city, this year he said that he will get Jays tickets and we will go see a game! I love the Jays so I’m pretty excited about that – he actually keeps his word so I know this will happen! Anyways, we talk the night away, he travels a lot so we get to hear all of his stories and sometimes see some pictures. I never really get to see him so it’s actually so much fun to see him, which needs to happen more which my sister and I will make it more.

He dropped off our gifts and we opened them on Christmas, he always gets us something small but it’s always something good. For me he got me season 1 and 2 of Sons of Anarchy, season 1 of The Walking Dead and an LCBO gift card that I can use on new years!

Weird dream is weird.

Okay, last night I had the weirdest dream and I actually remembered it which doesn’t happen like ever. Here it is..

My sister and I went to a Jay’s game with a bunch of different baseball friends, we all decided that we would all walk down and get beers together. The way it was set up was you buy you beer at one end and pick it up at the other but in between while you’re waiting in line you can buy food and pay for it; that’s what I did, I ordered a hot dog and fries. As everyone got their beers they just walked back up to the seats but since I ordered food it was taking long then it should have, but the time I got my food I just walked to the beer person and wanted to leave. When I got there the guy wouldn’t give me my beers and he said I have to pay for it. I told him I already paid for it on the other side and I was with all those baseball girls you already gave theirs too. He was rude and just said the price one more time and being me I said, “Fuck you” and left. When I was walking away I noticed that instead of getting a hotdog and fries, I got two hotdogs. I walked back and told them so they had to make fries making me wait even more. As I was waiting I saw all my friends got to be on TV and I wasn’t there for it, I got mad, grabbed my food and walked back up to the seats. I ate my food in silence, text me boyfriend I want to come home so he picked me up. 

Then I woke up. 

 

I honestly don’t know why it happened but I thought it was pretty funny and even funnier because I was dreaming of a Jay’s game.
