Nora & the Deluxe Box Suite

6 Oct

This past weekend turned out to be one of the best birthday celebration weekends I’ve had in a long time. I didn’t spend it drunk and hungover but instead very in the moment.

My brother came into town to surprise me (one of the best surprises ever!), I made some style changes to my bedroom meaning it’s almsot the way I want it to be, had beer with my favorite three men in the world (Irish, my brother, my dad), received ah-mazing presents from my long distance friends, Irish and my family as well as scoring tickets to a Deluxe Suite at the StL Cardinal’s last game.

Originally I had four tickets to sit in the nosebleeds which is really one of the best ways to see a Cardinals game but then Irish’s dad had tickets to a Deluxe Suite and I had to refrain from screaming “HELL YES!” into the phone.

On Sunday five of us piled into the car to start the adventure that would entail seats behind homeplate, unlimited free food, beer, wine and soda, as well as fantastically comfortable seats, great people watching and one of the best baseball experiences I’ve had to date.

Our view from the box:


With the always handsome Irish:


With the best brother in the world:


And we saw Albert Pujols break an old record/earn a new record:


With regular season out of the way we can now focus on post-season and hopefully make it to the World Series…

    First of all, you are adorable. In every photo I see of you! And of course, I think you most certainly did find a great way to celebrate your birthday. What better present than spending it with your loved ones and watching the best team ever march into the post season?!?!

    I agree with Nilsa, you are absolutely adorable! And the view from your box seats is stunning. Blue skies, the arch in the background, the beautiful skyline. I am so glad that you had a wonderful time at the game. And how great is your brother!
