Big Spoon, Little SpoonAfter reading my former roomie, and ICFH teammate, Meg’s guest post on Brownie’s blog, I was a combination of jealous, inspired and nostalgic. Jealous because I now want guest bloggers of my own, but more so inspired by the idea of having a friend speak for you–not necessarily about you, but for you, and about shared interests. Everyone has such a unique voice; it’s incredible the way a story can translate so differently for each person who tells it, and mean something so different to each one who hears it. And today my hope is that as you read this post, you find your own unique meaning in my message. [CONTINUE READING]

Well, I admit. It’s been two Tuesdays since my last #TuesdayTune. Not good! But I can say this: things have been crazy. And I’m going to throw the excuse out there, for the record, that I’m trying to plan, pack and prepare for my exciting EUROPEAN VACATION. I don’t know why I find I need to rationalize and or make an excuse but I will, anyway.

I’m going with my friend Jello from ICFH (Ithaca College Field Hockey)—leaving Thursday, July 26th after work, heading off to Zurich, and returning from Edinburgh to New York on Tuesday, August 7th. Being that I finally get to travel to Europe with a friend, instead of family, I consider it almost like my first time exploring internationally—in Europe at least. And besides, we’ll also be going to three places I’ve never been before!! (One of my vacation requirements). Switzerland—running my first international half-marathon in the Alps of Davos. London—seeing two matches of field hockey at the OLYMPICS!!! Thank you, Twitter. And Scotland—drooling over dreamy accents, biking through the greenery and scenery, and exploring every castle in sight.

Don’t get me wrong, traveling with Ang and Ken has its perks, of course financially, but more importantly for the crazy, ridiculous, Clark Grizwold stories we have to tell upon returning to the States. (And yes I do hold family entertainment at a higher standard than money). But in spite of all that, I’m really really REALLY ready to experience Europe again, with a friend, on my own, while I’m young, while I’m not tied down, and the list goes on. What I can also tell you, is the two mindsets I’ll be living by throughout my trip:

  1. This is a cliche but in all honesty “‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity.”
  2. And in 21st century speak…hashtag #YOLO, baby.

But that’s enough about my incredible trip for now. More updates to come. But for now, enjoy my Tuesday tune by the “bone-shaking baritone,” himself. Mr. Josh Turner. It’s called “Find Me A Baby.” And if this song doesn’t make you clap your hands, sing along, step side-to-side to the rhythm, or move your entire body from left to right while driving (steering the car back and forth across two highway lanes with you) because you’re so into the beat, well then, I’d surely be surprised.

Who wants to go to my second Turner concert with me?

Yea. Let the idea marinate. ;)

Running a half marathon through the Swiss Alps, reaching a max elevation of 5,351ft.? Sounds like a cake-walk! #JustKidding. I’m nervous as anything. Already registered. No turning back now. Watch out, Switzerland. I’m doin’ me in Davos at the 2012 Swiss Alpine K21. My first international race!!! And so happy my Jello Friello is doing it with me! :) #30JaysOfJune #photoaday #challenge #Day7 (Taken with Instagram)

P.S. Coincidentally, this picture was taken at 11:11pm. Make a wish? Don’t tell! Good luck?

I am officially amped for ICFH alumni weekend. No doubt about it. There is so much excitement and love in the Yavits air, as our epic Bomber reunion rapidly approaches. It’ll be here quicker than the jugs machine drilled a 95mph field hockey ball at my ankle that one time…at band camp practice (#memories #truestory). I especially can’t wait to see my Little Fudge Muffin!!! And so our convo must be chronicled.
