Some Stats.

USTA Sectionals came and went.
I had such a great time in Portland with my team.
We made it all the way to the final...
but lost.

I was a little surprised at how disappointed I felt.
Probably because I could taste the win right around the corner.

If we had won, we would have gone to
Tuscon, AZ for Nationals.

But as always I learned a lot.
And I promise you...I had the time of my life.

I can't believe how much fun I had playing each match.
In the past, I have had major issues with nerves.
I guess it gets easier the more seasoned you get.

And I can honestly tell you...
EACH match was a blast to play.
And my partner is just so fun to play with.
And the whole team was fun to hang with.
And Lululemon was fun to shop at.
And my coach was the best supporter.
And my friends made me laugh till my eyes teared.
And I am gullible because I believe everything Janelle says.
And I found I love flatbread pizza enormously.
And tennis rocks for so many reasons.
I love it.
I love it.
I love it.

I'm going to leave you with some stats, my stats.
And I will mention that Elece & I were undefeated.
I am proud of that accomplishment.
I hope that's okay.
To be proud I mean.

There you go, Larson posterity.
Those stats are for you.

Thanks Team Knox.
And thanks Lecey Lou.
I will remember these as some of the
best days of my life.
Of that there is no doubt.

Here's to 2012.
A new team.
New goals.
And new fun.


In my head.

Just a few thoughts in my head...

 I have no pictures to share with you!
Our camera broke, and all the pictures from summer were on it. 
Big fat bummer.

Next week my team goes to Portland for Sectionals.
Time to see how we measure up.
I've had a blast getting lots of practice in.
Go Team! Go!

It was nice waking up to a clean house this morning.
We even organized kitchen cabinets yesterday.
I love that.

I'm taking the girls to get Pedicures tomorrow.
A daughter day always makes me happy.

I have the bestest hubby ever.
He's good to me.
I think he likes me a lot.
It's nice to be liked.

I made blueberry muffins from scratch this morning.
My kids thanked me over and over.

Are there really only 3 weeks left before school starts?
Didn't summer JUST start?
I'm willing to cram what we can into these last few weeks.
And I will use a different camera.

I love Sundays.
Church, a good dinner, and time with my family.
Maybe a walk too.

I better go fill the bird feeder.
It's been empty for a few weeks now.
I want fat, happy, chirpy birds.

I'm off to enjoy my day.
Happy Sunday!
