So my first, maybe, 4 post will be to catch you up to the now! Then it will be basically a blog about "life little steps" in well , you guessed it.... LIFE! Ya know being married to a professional athlete, raising a baby in the baseball lifestyle and our marriage!
So about Cale. Besides the fact that my husband is beautiful, smart, talented.....did I say sexy?!?! haha Well I could go on forever about Cale but most importantly, he is extremely devoted to our faith and living his life accordingly! I have never met, even until this very day, a man quite like Cale. When I first met him, I will admit it was totally his looks but after about an hour of talking and dancing, I was smitten by him. Cale lives his life every day devoted to our beliefs. He does not drink, smoke, go to bars....anything along those lines. I think that is pretty amazing, especially in these days. It is VERY rare!!! Cale grew up in the Mormon faith , so to him this was the usual way of life. He was supposed to be drafted in the First Round out of high school with the Twins, which if you know anything you know that is freaking awesome. But told them quickly he was going on a mission, so they passed on him, then the Rays were going to sign him and let him play one year of Pro Ball then let him go on his mission then return back to them. I mean who could refuse that offer?? Wellllllllll Luckily Cale did! Because that is what led him to the great state of Alabama! He chose to go on a full ride to The University of Alabama which is where his One True Love was waiting to meet him....... ME!!! I will never forget that is when facebook started and I use to receive these funny loves notes, pretty late at night, and was like "who in the heck is this guy?!?!?!" Well as soon as I saw him face to face at a baseball party, that was it for me!! I told my Mom I had met the man I was going to marry, and even still have the diary where I wrote it from 2005. Pretty neat huh??? But anyways back to filling you in on us! So Cale was the first Mormon I had ever met, at first I really didn't pay to much attention because my focus was on dating him, but then when he told me he would be leaving on a two year mission, then my curiosity really set in. I loved everything he told me about his faith. I loved the idea of having an "eternal family" one day and being sealed forever, while thinking Ahhhh please choose ME! lol But I had to do searching for myself, It is definitely something you have to do for yourself, because it is a way of life and not just a religion that you have on Sunday. I had missionaries twice and then Cale was able to baptize me in the off season of 2008 and the same week we were engaged. It was amazing and I am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for that special day in college when I would meet the man that would forever change my life! God truly knows what and who we need in life and he leads you to the right person you just have to be aware of it! Sooooo..... remember that! I feel and see so many blessing every day by choosing my way of life. We are so blessed to have the marriage that we do, I honestly think our marriage is perfect. We laugh ALL the time, we joke, we play and we love like there is no tomorrow. Fights....well maybe tiny ones, but because we are both ridiculous we cannot help but start laughing and then everything is back to normal, happy-go-lucky! Our daughter is our WORLD! She is full of awesomeness! Vayda is beautiful, she looks like her daddy of course, and she is just truly an angel sent to us from Heaven above!
Soooooo.... Cale got drafted on his mission, at the end of it, and is a short stop in the Detroit Tigers organization! We are in Triple A (last step until the majors) and he was placed on the 40 man big league roster this off season, which is fantastic! So hopefully it all works out for him, I would love nothing more than to see his dreams come true, even if it is just for one day, just to know he accomplished his child hood dream would be a privilege to see. I mean who wouldn't want to accomplish what the little 8 year old inside of you wanted? Mine said a nurse and country music singer......man little Kristin sure got let down, hahahaha
So that is kind of updating ya, next we will do Vayda and being prego all last season and then the big move only a week after she was born.....then we will start with baseball life! For all of you baseball girl groupies, trust me it isn't that glamorous, your much better off hanging out at the bars and getting you a lawyer or doctor, because they make the money, there is NO money in the minor leagues, repeat NONE!
Have a good night y'all!!!
