What Do You Do...

On one of the most important weekends of your husband's life, or career? You go to a Phillies game! Last weekend Justin took his boards, clinical style(actual patient drill and fill sort of stuff). This test is a definite hit or miss type, that if you are not on your game, could fail pretty easily. Needless to say Justin was anxious, nervous, antsy, you name it. Above all the stress and anxiety leading up to this weekend, I was invited to a Phillies game with my friends. I couldn't resist...a night out with my friends that I am going to have to say good-bye to(sob sob) in a month, and seats that are, well, let's be honest, amazing, just two rows up from the dugout, order practically any food, drink, treat you want and they bring it to you, and its afforded a scanned ticket away, so close if you had a go-go gadget arm you could reach out and touch the players on the field(easy Val, lol), let's just go ahead and be the ump for the game, your so close kind of seats! No one would pass this up. Justin, being the best hubby in the world, let me go. I offered to get a sitter for the kids, but he insisted that even though this WAS a huge weekend for him, that I go and have a good time. I am one lucky girl!

Cindy, Jen, me and Val. Thank you to my friend Cindy and for her sweet Acme hook-up. Like that plug? Shop Acme!

Ummm, are these really our seats? Look how stinkin close we are?

Oh Cole!!! Watch out he's married. And so am I. He's just a really talented athlete right?...and maybe easy on the eyes too.

Ok that's enough, but you get the idea.


For Justin...your favorite player, Chase Utley. I love ML Baseball games. My first(the Orioles) was 7 years ago when I lived in D.C. and I had not been to one in 4 years. It was about time. Great weather, phinatic fans, 7th inning stretch...the list could go on and on. This game was also extra special because they honored Harry Kalas, the voice of the Phillies, who passed away recently. We are going to miss Philadelphia when we leave, especially with all the sports teams that we get to cheer on, and on occasion get to actually spectate.

No really, we are really ticked

Justin just said he's not ticked...speak for yourself Thomas. And you shouldn't be mad at Val. You're just jealous you couldn't see Cole Hamels up close and personal like that.

That's a once in a life time seat! Nice job, I would of gone too! But really that is nice of Justin to just say go. How fun, and just the girls? Thats how you do it. Good seats, hot guys, and a lot of talk. I mean how could you not watch the game when your that close?
