Baseball Nerd Alert!

Not sure if everyone knows this about me...I am a huge sports fan, especially baseball.  I love reading about it, watching it and debating it...stats and all!  Diehard Cubs fan here! My father took me out of school to go to every opening day at Wrigley Field since I was a kid until college.When I was little, I used to say that I wanted to be the first female Major League baseball player...ha!

Since a client of mine advertises on WGN Cubs radio, I was invited to a remote broadcast with Theo Epstein President of Baseball Operations for the Chicago Cubs.  As a forever Cubs fan, it is great to have someone in charge of the team that is a baseball guy, but also a numbers and stats guy.  He wants to build for the future, not just a quick fix...




Since I was going to meet the controller of the future of baseball in Chicago...I spent way to much time trying to decide what to wear.  I wanted to look classy, do I went with the basic black dress.  The the delimma was what to wear on top, since it was about 25 degrees when I left the house... I decided to ad this print sweater grey tights and my favorite black boots.  I figured that the casual sweater over the dress, was very me...classy with a fun, laid back twist...

I am not sure if anyone really notices...or cares, for that matter...I never wear my hair up in photos.  I pretty much never wear my hair up unless I am going to the gym or it is a scorching day in the summer.  But, I am growing my bangs out, so I decided to try something different...

Oooh love the braid & your purse (well, and the whole chic outfit). I'm so not a sports person, but since even I've heard of Theo Epstein I know it's a big deal to meet him ;) Very cool!

That sounds like fun. You look really pretty, and I am loving that cardigan sweater.

You look really great in this outfit!

Too cool! The Cubs are only my second favorite team (Tigers fan, born and raised), but I have high hopes with the change in management.

Love the braid too! Growing bangs out is the most annoying thing, but it definitely helps to pin them back in a fun, creative way.

I'm jealous...not that you got to meet Theo, particularly (sorry, my husband converted me to Reds fandom when we lived in Cincinnati, and my dad is a Yankees fan, so I've never been a huge Theo supporter...), but just that you got to have such an awesome experience in general!

My grandpa pulled me into sports at a very young age, with our favorite team being the Indiana University basketball team. The night Bobby Knight came to speak at my school after IU let him go, I got to have dinner with him, and it was maybe the highlight of college :)

I have been feeling the Southwest vibe lately so I love that sweater! Also, cute bag :)
