Hey everyone! We’re Mads and Mary from @gamedayfashion_ We’re so excited to share some of our favorite gameday beauty brands with you all! These are all things we use and love on a daily basis.
They understand this life and some of the struggles we have to go through because of baseball. They will be there for you as if they’ve known you forever. What I’m saying is, you need these girls! And they need you. You’re all in this life together and the support will be unreal.
This adventure has only just begun, but has already brought me to places I would have never traveled to otherwise. It has reassured me just how wonderful people can be, and has pulled me out of my shell entirely.
It's draft week and that means it's time to welcome the newest WAGS into the family. We are so glad you're here, and we can't wait to meet you! Here are some welcomes and words of advice from your sisters in this crazy beautiful baseball life.
My life has drastically changed in the last 365 days, but I am so beyond thankful for God’s plan for our lives. Here are seven things I’ve learned in my “rookie” year of being a MiLB girlfriend:
Striking Out Poverty partners with athletes who are dedicating their stats to making a difference beyond the scoreboard this season. When an athlete joins Striking Out Poverty, every strikeout, hit, or stolen base can make an impact!
Although this season hasn't gone the way I had anticipated (you would think I would have learned by now to have no expectations), it has strengthened our faith and marriage.
Stop scrolling through Instagram and convincing yourself that other women have it better. Stop believing that you aren’t good enough or that you can’t do what you want because of your husband’s career. Make a long term goal and every day that you can’t get to that goal because of situational reasons – work on a short term goal to keep you on track. Bloom where you are planted.
We love WAG-owned businesses and that's why we're starting Small Business Saturdays. Each week, you will have the opportunity to submit your business for a tagged shout-out on our Instagram Stories. It's a great way to reach our ever-growing audience of WAGS and fans.
The cons of long distance usually take the spotlight and I'm sure you've all heard them or dealt with them before. But I'm here to share with you the PROS of long distance through my experience - and yes, they do exist.
Happy May! I'm excited to announce our LOVE partner for this month, Wright State of Mind. I first heard about this organization from Madison Wright when she was a guest on our podcast. The mission of Wright State of Mind is to love and care for those affected by dementia, and it all began when Madison's mother-in-law Sherry was diagnosed with Behavioral Variant Frontotemporal Dementia at the young age of 51.
One of the best ways we can help each other feel less alone in this crazy baseball lifestyle is to share our stories. Stories connect, inspire, make us laugh, and most importantly make us shout "me too!" If you've been in this game for more than a day, you have something to share, and we want to read about it. Here are some ideas to get you going…
I don’t know why some people are quick to jump to these kind of conclusions about our life, but I assume it has to do with stereotypes and a need to compare. I believe it’s important to continue to tell the truth, our lived-out truth, whether people understand it or not.
To the girl that’s just starting out, You’re not ready, I can promise you that. You’re not ready for what’s to come and there’s absolutely no way to prepare you for it. There’s no way to explain how lonely you’ll be on the first road trip of the season in a new town with all your friends and family hundreds of miles away. You’ll start off strong and tell yourself, “I’ve got this.” And then on day 9 of the 12 day road trip, you’ll lay on the floor and question every decision that led you there and if it’s going to be worth it...
In the nearly two years I have been out of college and working, I have grown so much from my career. I’ve become that much more confident and self-assured. I feel good about the work I am doing each day, and I also know that I am good at it. That independence and my own self-identity has been critical in my sanity throughout this crazy baseball life. One of the reasons Kyri fell in love with me was because of my ambition, just as I fell in love with his passion for baseball. Despite being so far away, we are each other’s biggest fans. I try to watch or listen to all of his games, and he calls on my way home every day so that I can tell him what I had been working on.
Happy April! We are excited to announce our LOVE partner for this month, the Jason Motte Foundation. The mission of the Jason Motte Foundation is to provide comfort and care where there is a need for those affected, either directly or indirectly, by cancers of all kinds.
We aren’t crazy women out here all alone following our men around. We have made a commitment to someone who has a unique lifestyle. That lifestyle has molded us into extremely adaptable people, put grit in our spirit and strengthened our faith.
After traveling to Australia, I realized I was very unprepared for the big move down under, so I talked with a few other WAGS on different ABL teams and we came up with a list of 10 tips/advice for future ABL ladies...
I have learned a lot from the past 3 years and am still learning. I look back and wish I had a “Everything a MiLB Girlfriend Needs to Know” guide or the WAGS blog but I didn’t have that then! So I’m so happy to have this platform to share some advice to all my fellow WAGS! Here are my top six tips for a great season...
Mission 108 advocates for the marginalized while focusing on human rights for the survivors of human trafficking and the extreme poor. Their mission is inspired by the belief that we belong to each other.
