Simple Pleasures

Again, I've fallen off the blog wagon. Fridays always seem like a great time to get back into the swing of things, though, since it's my dedicated day for Simple Pleasures. Here are some things I'm excited about....

The Oakland A's

I've always maintained that I'm a fan of the teams from both sides of the Bay, but when it gets down to brass tacks, I'm rooting for Oakland before San Francisco. So, while I'm happy for the Giants that they won their division title, I'm even MORE stoked for the A's for winning the AL West title and making it to the post season without having to go in as a wild card! My beau is a die-hard Angels fan, so he was quite upset that his team couldn't quite hack it and was even more upset that the A's managed to. When the A's won that last game against the Rangers it was the first time they had been in first place all season. My response? Better late than never!

My Work Pumpkin

It may officially be autumn, but the temperatures this past week sure haven't been reflecting that was mostly high 90s, but it hit triple digits a time or two. Still, I've been pretending it's a little crisper outside, which wasn't too hard since I was sitting in an air conditioned office. Now that it's starting to cool down (and hopefully stay that way) I am definitely looking forward to more autumn-esque things like the leaves changing colors, and carving pumpkins. One pumpkin I won't be carving, however, is the lovely new addition to my desktop and a gift from my boss. Nothing says "autumn" quite like a bright orange pumpkin!

An After Work Shopping Trip

My mom and I used to go shopping after work fairly frequently. We didn't always come home with purchases, but we did enjoy just going out and perusing the shoes or purses on any given day. For one reason or another, we haven't been venturing out together after work to see what's new in the stores, but today we are. Whether or not we find anything is yet to be determined, but I'm armed and ready with gift cards left over from my birthday. Here's to hoping I find a new pair of shoes!
