Spring has sprung!
Snow is gone!
BASEBALL IS HERE!!!
It was opening weekend here in Cardinal Nation! But boy was it cold! But an evening with my Fella and My 'other' brother and sister were not gonna stop me from missing some 'cold beer, peanuts here'
Looking forward to my weekend off and extra Friday I couldn't have been more excited to put on my pink jersey try oysters drink some beer and spend the evening with a few of my favorite ppl. Starting the day off, a little later than usual due to an hour of much needed sleeping in, we all like that. To getting ready and heading to the city at 11am.
First stop, shopping!! I'm not much of a country gal but the great outdoors shopping center 'Cabelas' was kind to me and had the cutest green sweatshirt just calling my name, while Shane was gathering his hunting mind and focusing on the Turkey vests! LOL... It was a win win!
Off to the hotel we go! Some cold Platinums as we would rather have not spent 10$ for a bottle of beer the entire evening and decided to hang with the other couple for some R&R before the big night! Hair, check! Makeup, check! And outfit, check!
Oysters!? Yuck?! Ooh wait....
The Broadway Oyster Bar, a small shack with the small stench of sewer surprisingly was a great place to try Oysters for the first time! Put a little cocktail sauce on them puppies and they go down like a glob of snot! Okay, not really! But they do have an 'odd' texture! Beers Down off to watch some baseball!!
Settling into our seats and the wind isn't too awful a blanket and some peanuts will make you forget it was 38° as the Cardinals were honoring Stan 'The Man' Musial by handing out car decals and Stan's classical Harmonica! During the 6th inning we were all invited to play 'Take me out to the Ball Game' in honor of Stan! It really makes you see how one person can put such an impact on so many!!
They say your always famous when your gone, but the Cardinal stadium made you feel as if he was still there! With a Yadi home run making the score 2-0 we were happy at the end of the night to know Cardinal Nation had yet another win!
It's Baseball season! When are you up to bat?

A Little About Me
- I'm Kala.. Yes there's no Y in my name. Mom says it's because she didn't want me to have a hard time writing it in kindergarten.. Silly I know but that's Mom. I grew up in the small town of Nokomis as the youngest of 3 other siblings Shane, Michael and Mindy. The song American Honey relates most to my life... "She grew up on the side of the road, where the church bells ring and strong love grows, she grew up good, she grew up slow, like American Honey" I am going to be sharing my stories of the past present and what I hope to accomplish in my future. I am a very genuine girl and pray and hope my life in the future brings me happiness and joy and still be the genuine person I am... Life Is Short Lets Make The Best Of It!!!
