My name is Chelsey Edens.  I am a 6th year coaches wife.  My husband is an assistant coach for our local high school football, a head coach for the same high school baseball and American Legion ball.  I am a mom of two amazing tiny humans.  My oldest is 3 years old (born at the beginning of football season) and our daughter is 18 months (born during the middle of high school baseball season).  My favorite things include having my husband home, pepsi icees, leggings, and naps!
