Friday Fun

Happy Friday2

Since I am new to the blog world, I thought it might be fun to share some random facts, so that y’all can get to know me better. Here goes:

  • I am a numbers person. Since I am a number cruncher CPA, this isn’t really all that surprising, but the catch is that I only like numbers that end in a zero or five. So this means, car volume, temperature setting, mileage, etc. all have to be “even” numbers (i. e., zero or five in my world).
  • I make the bed every. single. day. I absolutely cannot stand to come home to an unmade bed. This is the first thing I do every day. Daniel is trained on board now too, after I explained that by making the bed, you are taking control of this day. I came home today to find that he had made the bed and even created a little heart-shaped towel origami with our blanket. Love it.


  • My favorite smell in the whole world is the smell of the dishwasher when you open it up after it has just gotten done cleaning. A close second is the smell of a two-stroke engine when it is first cranked.
  • I can sing all of the “rap” lyrics to TLC Waterfalls after all of these years. Just imagine what I could have been doing with that brain capacity!
  • I don’t have my ears pierced. Needles are very scary torture devices.
  • I am extremely nearsighted. I wear contacts, but otherwise can’t see anything more than a foot in front of my face. Daniel’s is just as bad. When If we ever have children, those little kiddos are going to be blind as bats.
  • I learned to water ski when I was four and learned to slalom when I was five. I still love it!


  • I love a good weekend nap. Daniel calls my naps “mini sleeps,” because my preferred napping duration is somewhere in the range of 2 – 4 hours. Falling asleep on the couch, doesn’t count either. Naps are done in the bed. I mean if you’re gonna do it, do it right.

Okay, so that’s enough of that. On to more interesting things … This morning was a little bit of running and a whole lot of tennis!

I met Lizzie early this morning to play tennis. Lizzie and I both played tennis competitively at the junior level and subsequently converted to running. We planned to run a few miles beforehand to warm up. I have noticed that I play much better after a run than if I don’t run beforehand. Running helps me warm up faster and get energized. Our warm up miles turned into a search for tennis balls, as neither one of us remembered to bring them. We had no success with that, as everywhere we stopped was either closed or didn’t have them. We settled for hitting with a few fairly damp balls that were left in the grass outside of the courts overnight. It wasn’t ideal, but we made it work!


I then headed across the bay to pick up my new rackets and play a practice match against another girl on my team who will also be playing singles at state. After testing out several different models, I settled with the Wilson BLX Juice Pro. It is a little heavier than the racket I was playing with previously, but it feels really smooth and I am able to get more power with it. The best news was that this racket is being discontinued and so I was able to get a really good deal on them, basically I got two for the price of one. Sweet!

I was worn out when I got home and I took a nice long nap (see above).

Friday evening I met up with some girls from small group to go to Sunset Yoga. A local yoga studio sponsors sunset yoga on the bluff twice a month from March through October. All classes are by donation and the proceeds go to a different charity each month. The class times vary with the sunset times throughout the year. I have seen the class out there before and it always seemed so picturesque, so I have been wanting to try it out. It was a very relaxed class and we all really enjoyed it! What a view, huh?
