If there is one thing I definitely do well, it’s think. My brain works about 600 times faster than the rest of my body at all times. Usually, this leads to embarrassing situations where I mash words together, freeze up entirely because my brain and mouth refuse to work in tandem, or sometimes can’t sleep … Continue reading Overthink. Overthank. Overthunk.
Happy Halloweek, everyone! The long-awaited holiday is FINALLY here. Time to eat candy until your stomach hurts, dress up, and do the real spooky spooky stuff. (I apologize to those who read last week’s blog and were a little too creeped out. I promise it wasn’t a real story, just my overactive imagination.) I used … Continue reading A Spooktacular Weekend
So, we’re halfway through October and I’ve done almost an entire Fall’s worth of activities. Instead of boring you with an entire encyclopedia of Falltivities, I’ll put a spell on you and spell it out. 😉 An acrostic October Poem (with explanations) O – Out in the CornWhat can be more fall than a corn … Continue reading I’ll put a Spell on you
So, you remember a while back when I wrote that post about If you give a girl a soccer ball? Well, this past week I got to see firsthand how soccer impacts other young girls and women and it was absolutely incredible. My friend Jordan and I took a trip up to Raleigh, NC (technically … Continue reading Alex Morgan and Marta and More – Oh My!
Happy October! The best month of the entire year! I mean, how could it not be? Halloween, fall, orange leaves, the weather is finally pretty consistently in the 60s and 70s and it’s perfect. I had this idea that I was going to write all of my blog posts this month about scary spooky things, … Continue reading Friday Night Frights
I had my annual physical at the doctor’s office this week. Let me tell you, there is only one professional that I hate more than doctors, and that’s the dentist. So you can imagine my dread as I got up early on Friday morning to head to my early appointment before work. I get there, … Continue reading Weighing Happy
Do you remember passing notes like this as a kid? Maybe even into your high school years (some would argue that you’re still a kid at this point). Handing the note over or having your best friend pass it along was easy – usually accompanied by weak, barely-meant protests and a fit of giggles. You … Continue reading Do you like me? Yes or No.
Happy Halloween! Bex… It’s September. EXACTLY. September means Fall and Fall means Halloween. Halloween isn’t just ONE DAY- it’s a feeling. And I’ve got it. What I’m trying to say is that Fall is here. I can feel it. The smell is in the air, the weather is becoming the trademark NC fall beauty that … Continue reading Of Nature Walks and Waffles
Hi Guys, I’m feeling a little nostalgic this week. I ran across an article that I shared a few years ago, posted by a Soccer Girls website titled “If You Give a Girl a Soccer Ball…” and needed to share with all of you. The article, like the book about the mouse and the cookie, … Continue reading Thanks for the [Soccer] Balls
I made a new friend this week. Her name is Andie, and she’s not a real person. No – I’m not crazy. She’s my character from the 10-minute play festival that I acted in this weekend. That’s right. I was in a play this weekend. For the past two weeks, I’ve been rehearsing every night, … Continue reading Meet Andie.
