What I am Wearing:
Levi's jeans to work with my new black top by BB Dakota via Stitchfix. And my favorite shoesies! By Geox.
Later that night I changed into some comfy shorts and Shoemint wedges.
The school year is in full swing. Things are getting pretty stressful and time consuming...but by maintaining my extra-curriculars, I am staying sane. Meetings, paperwork, meetings, paperwork, blah blah blah.
For the time being I've got one less roller derby practice each week. I am using those free hours [about 4 total: 1h commute, 2h practice, 1h commute] to train via Crossfit and spend some time with my family and Daniel.
Pictured above are my current favorite earrings. :) I purchased them from The Impeccable Pig at the Houston Blogger Symposium. So beautiful! I recently visited their store in Rice Village and will be returning soon.
Things went pretty well this year. Two amazing teams and lots [and lots] of learning along the way.
My home team, the Bayou City Bosses, finally pulled it together for a couple sweet wins. As time passed I felt like a member of a new family [cheese!].
And being a member of the Knockouts [our B travel team] was an exhilarating experience as well. :)
Physically, I have upped my endurance and
balance. I barely played at the start of the season, then one team
decided that a jammer I should be, and put me in that spotlight. I am so
grateful for that opportunity to prove myself It went a long way. I became more confident and put so much more effort into my game.
I won't bother you with the mental changes I have experienced, but it's been a pretty amazing journey.
A big thank you to my league mates for giving me a spot in which I grew as an athlete, as well as a person.
I decided to keep my Crossfit membership. I really enjoy the workouts. They are relatively quick and extremely effective. My arms still hurt! The Bosses won their bout last Saturday, too. It was pretty rad. <3 p="p">
Open House was this week! So I popped into Daniel's classroom. He looked so fine. ;-)
Open house days are especially long because getting home between work and the event can be pretty difficult. So I gave the pups some extra time in the sun during lunch.
Speaking of extra time in the sun. I've been off campus the past couple days at a training session [during our breaks I step outside to warm up in the sun...]. There was a pretty sweet map of Texas hanging near the entrance. That plus a sweet photo editing app led to this piece of "iphone art."
I call it, "Texas, the world."
Why are we so proud? haha
Got any weekend plans?
One of my dear friends from college is getting married! I expect beautiful photographs all over my instragram this weekend. Check 'em out!
p.s. congrats to MISS ROSE for winning the Dish with Swish giveaway!!
