the countdown in on.

after much deliberation and some argument, i laid my foot down and booked us a mini vacation to spring training. i told hubby i would pay for all of it ~ because i’m on crack, evidently~ but it was the only way i could get him to agree to go. we went last year and had a blast. knowing that we would not be going anywhere now that i’m pregnant ~ not because we can’t travel, but because he doesn’t want to spend a dime ~ i needed to do something because i am already going stir crazy. and, since spring training has been one of his “10 things i want to do before i die” i knew it was the trip to take.

we went last year and had such a great time that we decided to make it an annual trip. well, since he’s such a meiser, he had previously said “no” to going this year. anyhow, i convinced him and i couldn’t be happier. i told him since the baby is due just days after our 5 year anniversary, we obviously won’t be doing anything for the anniversary, so we can could this trip as our anniversary trip. as he considered this gift, i booked the trip faster than you can say “sucker, i lied. you still have to do something for our anniversary”.

so, in a few weeks, we will fly into pheonix on a friday night, catch a game on saturday and one on sunday, then fly back on sunday night. while there, we will also make the requisite trip to cabelas. i’m stoked to be going, not only for the nice, warm weather, but for the love of the game. there’s just something about the smell of freshly mowed grass, the sun shining brightly overhead and hearing the crack of the bat.

    Sounds like a good plan.
