Weekend Shenanigans

This weekend was beautiful and so fun! Derrick and I got to play ultimate for the first time since winter league and it felt SO good to run and play again. I was writing a contract in the car on the way down on Friday night so we only played Saturday because of work commitments on Sunday but it was definitely worth it to play on Saturday. 

I sent this picture to our highschoolers on Saturday. It's not often they get to see their coach in action. 

We even managed a quick visit home and a Skype call with Jay and Jack. We hadn't been home in forever and we're leaving for Hawaii soon so we did Jay's birthday skype call  a little early.

On Sunday, Derrick coached while I showed houses and we ended the evening at the pickleball courts. We were lucky no one was there because I was SO full from dinner. I had to take a break every 10 minutes! I'm not a real person sometimes.

Crosby was wiped after a weekend of frisbee and family. She's still sleeping all day today trying to recover from the weekend.

This is unrelated to the weekend but I don't think I posted this picture yet. Michael and Rebecca got a new puppy named Belle and she is so cute! Crosby isn't sure what to think though...sorry Cros!

One Day it will be Christmas

I was thinking about this today and I don't think I've ever shared it on the blog. It's really silly but it's my coping mechanism for getting through tough days. I shared it with Jack over the summer and he's already said it back to me so I think he liked it :)

My job can be kind of stressful sometimes, especially when due diligence deadlines creep up with no resolution in sight. Whenever I'm really stressed out I just tell myself "one day it will be Christmas."

Christmas is so fun and no one stresses out about work on Christmas. No one wants to see houses or is looking at offers. It's the best day of the year!

I have been busy recently but not really stressed out so I don't know why this was on my mind but it works for me...maybe it will work for you!

Queen City Tune Up

Last weekend our high school team went to Charlotte for the Queen City Tune-up. The weather was amazing and the team was even better! We are in the thick of the season right now. We have three practices a week and league games sprinkled around. This was our big away tournament of the season so we all packed up and headed to Charlotte for the weekend.

On Saturday we went 1 and 3. Our first game was probably our toughest in the sense that we were pretty well matched against that team but our guys had to play hard. I think playing so hard that first game tired them out for the rest of the day. We didn't end up winning that one but it was  very good, close game.

Part of Derrick's motivation to the o-line during the last game was they got to pick dinner if they scored the point. They did and they chose Olive Garden. The busiest place ever that doesn't take reservations and we needed to seat 35. Luckily we were able to head there around 4:30 and only waited for about 30 minutes.

On Sunday we dropped down to the lower bracket and had three more games. We won all three games on double game point. Talk about giving your coach a heart attack! It was so fun to win those games so closely though and our team was so pumped up about it. 

I feel like all I talk about it how much we love this team. This picture just makes me smile so much though. We are so lucky to have such an awesome group of guys.
