Medlen and a surprise

One of our AAA phenoms has been called up, per the AJC, and will make the start on Tuesday. His name is Kris Medlen, and he's super-cute in this picture! He looks a little like he could be Jeff Bennett's kid brother, no?


So, I have the best hair stylist ever. Not only is my hair awesome and suits me well, but Jon gave me a present today!!

He sent me a message this morning saying he had a "present" for me, and when I stopped by the salon after lunch, he gave me a Clint-autographed baseball! This totally made my day, my weekend, my week, and is probably the coolest gift I've received all year! He is, hands-down, my favorite hair stylist ever.

If any of you are in the Atlanta area and want an absolutely AMAZING cut, just email me and I'll send you his information. :)

I'm all tired, it's the end of the day, and my hair still looks great. :) Thanks, Jon!

I happen to really like mini-medlen but someone needs to steal that hat and put a freaking curve in it!

Amy said...

I don't care for the flat caps, either.

Your hair looks great, and what an awesome present!

Jen said...

Medlen must have gone to the Jordan Schafer school of ballcap wearing. He's awesome though. I've seen him pitch @ Gwinnett, and he has been impressive. He can hit a little bit, too!

I wish my hair stylist was cool enough to give out autographed baseballs! :)

Kris was an infielder through college- didn't start pitching until the minor leagues so I imagine he can hit :) (I read someone say he was the best hitting pitcher on the roster since Hampton- who could rake)

He's also a SoCal kid- just one more reason to love him!!

Told y'all he looked great Mon. Bobby & Wren must read my scouting reports, huh?

SCJ said...

Guys... I really don't try & be difficult [by disagreeing all the time]... haha, but I love the straight bill look. Usually, anyway.

I wouldn't want everyone to do it. Just a select few! :)

Can't wait to see what this kids got!

Amanda said...

What a sweet surprise! And you're right, your hair looks great. :)

Lauren T. said...

SCJ, I do like the straight bill on Joba Chamberlain. (Blasphemy to like a Yankee, I know.) I just haven't found anyone else I like in it. :)

Andy G. said...

Your hair stylist is super cool, Lauren. You've always liked Sammons, haven't you? Did he know that? I just can't get over how cool that is for you. Your hair looks nice too.

The straight bill is weird. I guess it's the new style though. Kinda like how everybody started wearing the pants real loose. Wasn't Giles one of the first guys to have his pant legs go way past his ankles like that?

Amanda said...

Giles just couldn't find any pants short enough for him. :D

This Medlen kid looks like Kim Hudson a little bit. Anyone else see it?

Lauren T. said...

Andy, yes, I've always liked Clint. The stylist didn't know until about 6 months ago, and he volunteered to hook me up with a little gift! Awse.
