The boys of Summer...

Get ready kids... it's baseball season. I know I'm technically a little late, but I'm SO FLIPPIN PUMPED! I hope the Cardinals have a great season and I hope the Astros do too, just not as good as the red birds. ;)

For those of you who do not know me, you might ask- born and raised in Texas, even lived in Houston for five years, why the heck is this girl a Cardinals fan?! I shall explain. My entire family is from southern Illinois, (shout out to the Juicy Peanut!) about 30 minutes outside of St. Louis.

*for those of you like my boyfriend who apparently never studied a map, yes the state of Missouri is right next to the state of Illinois, St. Louis being ON the Mississippi River that divides the two states*

ANYWHO. So my parents grew up outside of St. Louis, both parents even worked/went to school in St. Louis. They have been raised with red bird blood (kinda like tiger blood, eh Charlie?) and they have passed that wonderful spirit ont0 their kiddos. Both of my grandmothers could beat anyone I know in Cardinal trivia. We joke, but no lie- my grandmother has a shrine to Willy McGee ('82-'90, '96-'99) in her spare bedroom. We have so many VHS tapes on the many World Series Championships (10 to be exact), a few on the Wizard (Ozzie Smith - if you did not know this Google him immediately!), and I'm sure there are some on the construction of the new Busch Stadium.

So. Do you get it now? I love my family and we love the Cardinals. 'Nuff said. :) Happy Spring y'all and GO CARDINALS!

Hahahahahaa. LOVE THIS. Welcome to St. Louis, Big Puma!


  1. Love you and your family dearly Kate, but GO BRAVES!!!!!!!!!
