I am only a few hours away from seeing my fav people in the entire world!! My parents, my lil bro, and my prego sis! It's going to be a great weekend! Even though I will be around all that great food and snacks, I plan on closely monitoring my portions! I also plan to jog Saturday morning and Sunday morning. My lil bro loves riding his bike, so he usually gets me to go with him!! :0)
Unfortunately when I visit my family it makes me want to move up there even more... one day... soon I hope...
I am sure gonna miss you guys this weekend!! But I will be back Sunday night and ready to go Monday for our new Challenge!!!

I guess I caught it! :0) I am currently playing on a Friday night league, and I love it! I am practicing tomorrow AM with another girl from the team--she is REALLY good! She played in MS, HS, and college. This is only my second year playing, and it's not even that competitive. I hope that she can help me improve my skills! I am trying to start a volleyball team for the summer league and don't care about winning. I just want to have fun, improve my game, and get some exercise!! :)
