tWINsfest excitement!

Believe it or not, considering how HUGE of a tWINs fan I am, I've never really been that interested in Twinsfest. I know, I know...unbelievable right?! I love me some tWINs! But it's just never something I've really been dying to go seemed fun enough--but really, I'm not the type of girl who's going to pay anywhere from $5-$50 for an autograph from a player. Especially since you have to pay to get in anyways--and I know it's for a good cause but I just couldn't really justify spending that much.

Anyways, cue to the point of this post. My dad and his friend Carl were going to Twinsfest today--Carl's brother sells baseball cards and he always gets free tickets so they figured they would go since it was free. Dad asks me at 11 if I want to go..."oh but Carl will be here at 11:30" I decided to pass since I wouldn't have time to shower or get ready. Then Carl shows up and basically forces me to go ("just put on a hat"...yeah, because a hat fixes everything! haha). Now, I will admit, it was much more fun than I thought it would be...but it's also not something I would do every year. It's kind of like the "once you do it, you don't need to do it again" thing--unless of course, you're going to specifically get someone's autograph.

I will forever be happy that I went today though because---dun dun dun!---when Dad and I were waiting upstairs for Carl, JOE MAUER, JUSTIN MORNEAU, CARLOS GOMEZ, and JESSE CRAIN walked by us! And I'm not talking 'just walked by us'. They were literally like a foot away from us. As in, if I had reached my arm out, I would have touched them. I'm pretty sure I stopped breathing while they walked by! And let me tell you, #7 sure was lookin pretty good! Gomez wasn't looking too bad himself--although he had his head shaved and I like him better with long hair! Anyways, just wanted to share my freak out of the day....I was sooo excited! That alone made the whole trip worth it!

did you propose to Morneau for me?

Or at least tell him he's going to be my next baby daddy?

Unfortunately, I did not. I apologize...I was too busy remembering how to breathe and staring at MY future husband!

And I'm pretty sure (and I could be wrong) but I'm PRETTY sure that polygamy is illegal in Minnesota?? So you're going to have to get him to divorce his new wife...probably even if you just want to have his baby because let's be honest, do you really want a cheater to be the father or your next child? (I fear I know the answer to this...and I don't think it's one I want to hear! haha)

I forgot to mention...I took a leap of faith and assumed that message was left by Jeff, if it was indeed you who would like to marry and have a child with Morneau, then I apologize!
