On Monday morning, Andrew and I put our marriage to the test…we went to New York for the day to see the Sox play at Yankee Stadium 🙂 .
Just kidding…we were both really good sports about it! As many times as we’ve seen our teams play, we’ve never gone to a game just the two of us, so we were due. When we thought there might be a chance the Yankees would make it into the first round of the playoffs (the Sox were firmly established there since they do, after all, have the best record in baseball this year…hahahaha!), we bought tickets for Game 3 which was played this past Monday night.
Here we are on the plane! New York City bound!! (Side note: I’m wearing the comfiest sweater EVER. It feels like chenille!) .
We landed around 3:00, checked into our hotel, changed clothes and hit the streets…

Our favorite neighborhood in NYC is the Upper West Side. We walked from Central Park South all the way to 103rd St. We just strolled and enjoyed the beautiful (and a little rainy) New York afternoon. We stopped at The Smith to sit on the patio and have a little late lunch/snack as we walked.
We walked and walked…and enjoyed. I loved seeing all the pumpkins out on Columbus Ave. We had a handful of people comment on our wardrobe. Ha! Everyone was so sweet about it though.
We walked until 103rd when we caught the subway all the way to the Bronx. This was my first time at Yankee Stadium, so I was super excited!! As much as I hate those Yankees, you can’t discount the history of that organization.
Ah! I love this particular Yankee so much!
We had great seats!
View from our seats. We settled in and were ready for the game!
Well, Yankee Stadium, you sure do know how to bring the FOOD! Holy cow! We had brisket with pasta salad on top and…
…dare I say the best pulled pork nachos I’ve ever had. The food was unbelievable! So, was the score…
My Sox all lined up on the field!
Now, I have to give it to my uber competitive husband. He was SUCH A GOOD SPORT!
We laughed and laughed and laughed as the score got crazy high and the Yankee fans ran out of the stadium in droves.
This fan stuck it out to the very end.
16 to 1.
A very fun game for one of us 😉 .
The next morning came early. Here we are leaving the hotel and heading back to the airport. (My sweater is HERE.) I am so thankful we went on this quick trip! It was super short, but super special. xo
