Trip "down under" memory lane...

3 of my favorite things in life happen to be basketball, my best friend, and Australia.  How lucky am I that I've gotten to combine these 3 things not once, but twice!

How you ask?  Well let me tell you! 

In 2005 (my senior year of college), and in 2007, I was invited to represent the United States in an international basketball tournament in Darwin, Australia.  It just so happens that my biff was invited to the same!

This olympic type tournament is every 2 years and it's called the Arafura Games.  Over 30 countries come from around the world to compete in 20 athletic competitions.  The experience was pretty much amazing.

Team USA won the gold medal in 2005 and the silver in 2007.  Holler 

Guess what time it is?  PHOTO TIME!

The Biff, Me, and our friend and teammate, Lynsay

Jock.  A pretty awesome bloke!  He was part of the Australian Defense Force Men's team 

This was the dreamy Aussie I met in '05.  We dated briefly but at the end of the day, dude lives in Australia.

Damo!  Probably the best Aussie I know.  He was a ref and we've been great friends ever since.  Just wish he lived closer!

In '07 I missed the flight with my team and had to make the trip alone.  I had a layover in Alice Springs.  Straight up outback!  Beautiful country!

Snorkling with my biff in the Great Barrier Reef with the Biff!

These Sheilas rock my life!  They played on the Women's ADF team. 
 I really do hope to make it back over there some day.  With the 2011 games coming up this spring, I've been thinking about those trips a lot lately.

This isn't the first time I've blogged about Australia and certainly won't be the last! 

To all my aussie peeps (yes, I just said peeps), I miss you! 

Until we meet again...

Denim Denim Denim!

Don't know if you watch Jersey Shore, but I can't seem to get enough of it.

I know I know, now you're judging me.  Can't say that I blame you.  It's garbage.  Kinda like a car wreck.  You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just can't look away.

The following clip is HILARIOUS.  C'mon, just click 'play.'  You know you wanna...  Enjoy!

I'm a loser baybeeee....

Today I "followed" my own blog to make it look like I had a whopping 14 followers instead of 13.  Pfffft.

In other news, I'm kind of a big deal....

Kinda like Tosh.O, only less funny or like Ryan Seacrest, only taller.  {Obviously} Heh.





the formula for one VERY unhappy tall girl.  

Duke and Wisconsin.  Why you have to do me so wrong??  I had high hopes for you.  Championship high hopes.  I hope you're happy.

Not too shabby!

I mentioned a few posts back this it was the one year anniversary of me and the boyfriend.  The weekend we were supposed to celebrate I got sick with bronchitis.  Boo.

So... this past weekend, Dexter said he had a surprise for me but I had to pick it out.  Wondering where this is going?  I was too.

In to the mall we went and leu and behold, as he lead me in to the COACH store, I was given instructions that I was to pick out ANY purse I want!  What?!  So exciting.

Conclusion?  I got my very first REAL coach bag!  See below...

What a guy.  :)

365 Days of....


So...I've been sick with Bronchitis.  Not cool.  Doc gave me an inhaler.  I feel like a fat kid in gym class.  Heh.

Anyhoo, my buddy Thomas out of Nashville started a web video blog series where he attempts to be creative and witty for 365 days straight.  So far so good, buuuuut we're only on day 8.... :)

Below is a taste!  Be sure to subscribe to his YouTube page "The Boot Show."  If nothing else, he's easy on the eyes...
