I finally faced my fear of singing a Karaoke song at a bar in front of a crowd of people!
I did have the help of alkey-hol , my hubby, and friends in the audience… (Carrie and Mark)
My song of choice was Total eclipse of the heart… a classic is you ask me 🙂
I almost backed out at one point but thought “No I have to do this, it’s on my bucket list”
As you can see in the pictures, I was into the song!
In my mind everyone in the in the bar was singing along!
It was a blast even though I know I sounded like a dying cat.
We finally did it! We closed on our house as of YESTERDAY! Codi and I own a townhouse in Leesburg VA. We celebrated with Mimosas and Lunch…and then we got a Costco Membership…very domestic of us I know.
After the wedding we will have to buy some furniture and move in and then we will be able to have a house warming party!!!!
I took a trip to AC in July to visit a few friends. One of them suggested we try paddle boarding, Since it was on my 30before30 list I was all in. We decided to try our first time on the … Continue reading →
I live to tell the story of my bachelorette party… it was a bit dicey there for a bit, wasn’t sure I would survive… With the help of some amazing women I not only survived but had an amazing time!
My cousin and Sister did a bang up job with planning a fabulous trip to Atlantic City for much needed Mayhem in the end of August. I was not allowed to know any of the details which I really enjoyed not having to plan anything.
Right from the start I was welcomed with booze, balloons, streamers and oh so many penis decorations… what more could a girl want, right?
Friday night we went to a Hulk-O-Mania where I got the DIVA package… how do I put this…. IT WAS AMAZING. Think Magic MIKE and then a bit wilder… I will let you use your imaginations.
Saturday we recovered at the beach and then rallied for a night on the town. We went to Haven, a night club in the Golden Nugget and danced and drank the night away. Lets just say it took me a solid week to recover from 2 nights of partying with these ladies. Good times… and so many pictures I Can’t even post….
I wanted to see what it would feel like to shoot a gun but the closest I had ever come to this was my brothers beebee gun. They make it look so easy in the movies and I wanted to feel the power between my hands.
My friend from cross fit happens to work for the NRA and she HOOKED IT UP! Codi and I went to the head quarters in Fairfax and were set up with the ranger manager, guns, endless bullets and a coach for a few hours for FREE.
We got to shoot a 9MM and an AR-15 , that’s right I was holding an Assault Rifle with a scope on it! Turns out I am a lousy shot with the 9MM, I kept closing my eyes and shooting the ground.
When I got to the AR-15 it was ON like Donkey Kong… zeroed in on the head and went for the kill shot. The instructor actually asked if I aimed for the head on purpose….YEP.
I wish I could have taken a picture while I was shooting but that was strictly forbidden. While in the range it sounded like 4th of July fireworks were going off right next to my head. We had a secret service agent testing his weapon right next to us and MAN was that loud.
Overall it was a great experience and it made me want to try again. Lets just hope an intruder doesn’t break into my house b/c unless he is lying on the floor completely still I am sure to miss…
I am excited to see what we can all accomplish in the next year! I see that a few of us have some list items in common… I am looking forward to sharing this adventurous year with such a fine group of ladies!
