happy opening day

Bryan woke up this morning to me handing him a gift bag while saying with pure excitement "Happy Opening Day!"

Today is one of his favorite days of the year.

Today is the day that I lose my husband to his first love... baseball. Anaheim Angel gear is pretty non-existant now that they've become The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, which is so lame because Anaheim isn't even in LA, it's in OC.

They just changed the name because they thought it would make the Angel's more money.

We hate it.

Therefore I scoured the internet and found him a brand new ANAHEIM Angels shirt.

Major points for wifey today!

Bryan's love of baseball began at an early age.

He played Little League all throughout his youth winning 52 games straight and pitching 2 no hitters.

Bryan threw 1 perfect game and 1 no hitter in high school and was drafted by the Cubs, but decided to play college ball instead.

He was a pitcher for Cal State Fullerton and if you know anything about college baseball, you know that Cal State Fullerton is major when it comes to college ball.

They've won the World Series of College Baseball and are a force to be reckoned with.

Throughout his 14 years pitching, his teams came in 1st place 11 times.

Pretty impressive record, right? Can you tell I'm proud?!!

Well, he blew out his arm and the rest is history...

Fast forward.... Bry and I meet..... fall in love..... and get engaged.

What comes next?

Time for the parents to meet!

You best believe all 6 of us went to an Angels game for their first introduction. Today I am a super-dee-duper wifey for suprising my baseball loving husband with some new Angels gear!

And you best believe he threw the shirt right on and is currently sitting next to me sporting it!

  8. You two are adorable. That was such a nice thing for you. I too lose my boyfriend as soon as baseball season begins. It is a good thing I love me some baseball, but it's unfortunate we do not root for the same team. Can't win 'em all I guess.. :)
