25,000 views y'all! (mini-milestone celebration time)
as of today, this lil blog has passed the 25,000 view mark! The views are almost all from this one concert-recap post and I can't be sure how many of these views are actual people and not just bots, but since I can't tell, I'm counting them all!
Now back to our regularly scheduled post:
The first weekend in October was filled with soccer and friends, starting with a very rainy DC United game (which they tied to clinch a spot in the playoffs)...
|Yay for friends who love soccer enough to stand getting soaked in the rain with me!|
...Then continued on Saturday at the RFK Auxiliary field for my coed league's All Star game #gopink!
|(we won, even if the blue team was much better at the whole organized-picture thing)|
The representatives from our team also got to accept the trophy for having won our division last spring, chyeeaaah SSFC!
I also don't have any photos of it (which I guess defeats the purpose of FotoFriday) but I had my first performance on stage playing acoustic/rhythm guitar with the worship band at my church and it was great, everyone was so encouraging! And I also participated in a Chili Cook-Off with a Pumpkin Chicken Chili (recipe here)
|Picture via original recipe (is this FotoFriday cheating if it's a professional picture? Imma say no, my blog, my theme, my rules)|
This past holiday weekend started out with some more soccer spectating (and another tie) with a group viewing of Landon Donovan's last game with Team USA
Saturday was spent resting up to attack the Army Ten-Miler with the family (minus 2OB, plus a Katie, who ROCKED the race with 12 hours notice) on Sunday.
My sister and I also always run in matching shirts with HOO and AAH written on our backs. For anyone who doesn't know, in the Army, HOOAAH is kind of an all-encompassing/catch-all cheer, encouragement, response. We always get comments and cheers mid race and the best is when someone tells us it encourages them! We even had a gentlemen this year tell us around mile 8 that this was the third year he's seen us, that makes him 3 for 3!
The rest of the weekend was spent mainly recovering off my feet with #notsosecretproject14
|bulky yarn = my favorite!|
My final activity this past weekend involved scoping out my soon to be new room (if all goes well)!!!
|Soon to be new room?!?!?|
