Happiness is...

Tennis has changed my life...

I am healthier.
I am more confident.
I am more relaxed because I get "me" time.
It gives me something to look forward to and get excited about daily.
My husband finds it sexy.

See? Changed my life!

But here is a biggie, and I never would have guessed that this sport would contribute so much to this one wonderful thing.

Tennis has introduced to me a whole new world of people.
Wonderful, awesome, kind, intense, crazy, fun, silly, serious, talented people!
Many of these people I call friends.
And I LOVE them!

So my awesome tennis friend Elece walks in with her kids. Her young son is wearing a very cool wrestling shirt. So I ask him about it and he tells me all about his wrestling career. Including how he got this cool shirt and if you paid just $5 more, you could get your last name on the back!!! And he turns around and shows me!
And I am impressed!
And so jealous!


No? Well I always did! I mean, that was just the coolest thing to me.
So I told him that.

And Elece AGREES with me! And she says...Oh my gosh! Let's get cool tennis shirts with...
And she says it with so much enthusiasm and excitement I am hooked!!!

So you know what we did?

That's right...
And now we are the coolest.
And it made us hit really good.
And now you all want one.

Point made.
See why I love tennis?

You are too funny. I have always wanted a shirt w/ my name on the back. Maybe someday, I'll rock at tennis and get one. :o)

I think that is great that you play tennis. I only have played a few times, with Lori B and i played with Ryan. ( Ryan played in HS)

You look so cute in your tennis outfit.!

Hehehehe! We are so super silly! I love our shirts and am sooooo super duper sure they make us hit extra good. I am sure glad I met you! My smile grows every time we talk. Your the coolest.

Ok, reading your blog really made me miss tennis. But tonight I was just telling Tami that I have a lot of hobbies, I can barely keep up with them....so for now I will just keep on missing tennis.

haha! Love it! Didn't play on a sports team in high school? They always put your name on the back. Anyway, I'm glad you got your shirt with your name ;o)

you crack me up! i have a few sweatshirts from high school with my name on the back that I just can't bear to throw away. In 5 years, when that shirt is ratty and you're still attached to it, you might not like it so much - lol!
