Dream So Long

Sorry about No-Post-Monday!!  I guess I was so overwhelmed with the weekend whirlwind, that I did not have much to write about yesterday!

Anywhoo, Monday was a busy day for me.  Class, Work and then the highlight of my week: Sand Volleyball.  I seriously look forward to this all day.  Unfortunately, I woke up yesterday morning without electricity.  We had another round of total brutal storms that knocked out the power in my whole neighborhood.  It's always fun getting ready in complete darkness.

So remember how I said I went grocery shopping on Sunday night?  What a twist of irony right?  Instead of me putting off buying food, like normal, I ambitiously bought food only for it to spoil in the fridge while we went without power for 20 hours. AWESOME!!

Needless to say, I was kinda bummin on my way home from work....until I saw that YOGURTIME OPENED!!! FINALLLLLYYYYY FROZEEEN YOGURTTTT THAT I CAN SLEEP WALK TO!


I totally freaked out.  There was no time for to go before volleyball, so I called Logan immediately and said "Yogurtime is open, we got at 9-be ready."   I had been watching the store front for months for signs and symptoms of their pending opening.  Yesterday, I finally got to diagnose it. 

The second my games ended, I bolted and picked up Logan.  Even though he knew my intentions I still had to beg him to go, he was pretty comfy tucked in at home.  I would have made us walk, but it was hard enough getting him to join me.  I didn't even shower any of the sand off me. 

Yogurtime is fabulous!  Great selection!  Unlike all the other area froyo places that have ice-cream-like flavors ala cake batter, german chocolate, etc.  They actually had tart and GREEN TEA.  I may or may not have freaked out.  So delicious.  I topped it with coconut and strawberries.  The girl at the counter said I was the first person to get that flavor all day and they were considering removing it. I informed her if the removed it, I may never ever come back....which is a bold face lie.

Logan ended up not liking his selection so I got TWO tubs of yogurt. WIN!  It was sooooo good you guys! I am so exited to have frozen yogurt back in my life, let alone one I can walk to.

Yes, It's on and poppin'

As you can tell, I take weekends off from the blogging world.  Mainly so I have enough time to have semi-interesting things to write about it-but also because I am usually busy enough to not find time to introduce my fingers to a keyboard.

This weekend happened to be one of the busiest of my life, and in retrospect I don't know how I was able to cram it all in and manage to stay afloat.  The first weekend of June is always a busy one for me, but 2011 took to whole new levels.  My weekend started on Thursday, lucky me right?    Thursday I worked a half day at real work, and then drove to the Kansas City Beach Volleyball club for the second half of work-which yes I actually got paid to do.  We had a "Beach Bash" sand volleyball tournament with work, and myself and team mates played for almost four hours-in the hot hot hot sun. 

Volleyball is my true first love.  You really never forget it.  I played throughout high school and for the club team at KU.  I love the sport.  I really love it.  I have been playing in an indoor league for the past few months, which I failed to blog about because I was on hiatus, but if you play it right and you play it well, it's an excellent work out.  Volleyball works muscles in my arms and back that usually goes unnoticed. The jumping and quick sprints is excellent for different muscle development in my legs that endurance training doesn't provide.  A few months ago, after not playing for several years I played a pretty competitive indoor game and the next day my calves bricked so hard I could barely walk.  Soreness I no longer really get the pleasure of feeling with my lactate threshold.

I prefer indoor though, and I will show you why:

I really hate when I forget sunscreen.

This was really the last thing I needed before the hardest half marathon of my season.  Oh and the sand is a drag too.  My team ended up in third.
