Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Baseball has played an important role in my relationship with the hubs.  Our first date was at a Dodger game and since that day (almost exactly three years ago!) we have spent lots of time attending baseball games.  One of our goals is to visit all of the baseball stadiums in the country, so for his wedding present, I had a custom painting done of a map of the US with all the stadiums on it.  Each time we visit one, we fill in the date on the painting.  On our first date, my now husband kept one big secret from me--despite being raised in Los Angeles, he is actually a Giants fan.  That means something to those of you who like baseball, and for those of you who don't, well let's just say the Dodgers and the Giants don't really get along.  Luckily, we found a way to overcome this flaw of his.  Since we are coming up on the anniversary of our first date, I decided to treat us both to a baseball present (you can see a pic at the end of the post) and treat y'all to some baseball wedding inspiration.  Let's play ball!  (Click pic for original source!)

It doesn't get much more all-American than that!  And here's our newest baseball gear!  Mine is the properly colored and awesome Dodger blue one on the right and his is the ugly black and orange one on the left.  I picked the number 24 since we got married on July 24th.  Hope I have inspired you to bring America's pastime to your big day!
