Running update: I ran 4 miles today and have 11 planned for tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes
For the past few days when I walk to the subway to go home from work, I pass by this little cupcake shop called Baked by Melissa. They sell little bite sized cupcakes that all look really cute and colorful. I finally decided to go in and buy some this week to try them out. Not only are they adorable looking, but they are great for portion control since they are minis (I need something to help control myself when it comes to sweets). Plus they taste really good and have really cool flavors!
Apparently you can go to the website too and make custom cupcakes that you can have delivered, which I think is so cool! If you have one nearby, check it out!
I also had another food first this week: Salted Caramel Mocha from Starbucks. I’ve seen this drink for a while and have wanted to try it since it seemed to have a great fall-ish flavor (my FAV season). I am in love with this drink and have been thinking about it ever since. I need to have another. I love the salt on top and the flavor is so tasty! I don’t drink coffee often, but this one I can totally do. Go grab yourself one!
The other night Karl and I got free luxury box tickets to the Met game (note: I’m a Yankee fan but I never turn down free baseball tickets). This stuff never happens to me so I was really excited! Of course my first thought was: Will there be free food? I love food as you probably know. Since the Mets aren’t doing too hot either I figured the game would be a blowout, so we might as well have some good munchies. Well, we got that and then some!
We arrived to the stadium around the first inning, so it was already dark out. As a Yankee fan this isn’t easy for me to say, but I honestly like Citi Field more than the new Yankee Stadium. I think the architecture is a lot cooler and its fun inside. Plus, I love the arches and brick wall behind home plate.
We got inside and were directed to these cool Mets elevators that take you to the luxury box floor.
I felt super fancy! When we got into the room, I was in awe. It was huge with couches, tables, TVs, a fully stocked fridge, and tons of food. My favorite part though was the Shake Shack burgers and shakes. Yes, as many of these heavenly burgers as you want.
There are also regular seats outside the box for watching the game. The game itself was basically a blow out, I think the Mets lost 9-1 or something but I enjoyed hanging out and enjoying being there while sipping on my chocolate Shake Shack milkshake (yum!). We also had the Giants game on the TVs in the box to keep track of how they were doing.
Another big thing happened to me that night. Besides it being my first time in a luxury box, I caught my first foul ball! Well I didn’t catch it per se, it was hit into the seats next to us and I ran and picked it up. But I still count it as a catch! It was a nice little souvenir to go on the top of my dresser.
Even though I was really tired at work the next day, going to this game was totally worth it. Those seats will probably never be available to me again so it was a really memorable experience!
Have you ever been to a baseball game? What are the best seats you’ve had?
Have you tried any new food lately?
