Snail Mail & Go Buckeyes!

so a month or so ago Holly of Running in Stilettos & I discussed our love of snail mail & how we wanted a penpal...well instead of just talking about it we decided to do it! & to make the penpal snail mail even more exciting we decided to have themes with our snail mail.

If you don't know Holly well that sucks first off, but second shes from Ohio...somewhere I have never ever been...& well I'm from California somewhere she has never been! We both are so interested in each others states that we decided our first snail mail would be hometown themed!

I was SUPER excited when I got her package because one I love football & two i love clothes. If you didn't know Ohio State football is HUGE in Ohio. They call it The Buckeye State! I always wanted to go to a college that was big in football but it never happened. I went to a few University of Oregon football games back in the day & i LOVED them. But now I'm transiting into a Buckeye! So in honor of football pre-season starting I decided to have some fun with my Ohio gear!!!

Let's go Buckeyes!

what do you think of my awesome football moves...pretty legit right? ha!  In my defense tho, I did play powder puff in college & kicked some sorority girl ass! ...so one of my dreams in life was to be a cheerleader in high school. I never wanted something so bad. Cheer was huge in our town & it was something I worked towards from the moment I started dancing at age 3. So when it finally came time to try out for cheer my freshmen year of high school I was ready to go....

However, I still to this day remember sitting in the gym floor with all the other hundred of girls who also tried out. I was sweating beyond belief as the varsity cheerleaders passed out envelopes to the girls who made the JV team. I never got an envelope. I just had to sit there watching my dream fade away while hearing all the excitement from my friends making the team. I was devastated. It was an awful day filled with a lot of crying & well a lot of screaming....see I do have a little bit of a temper so when I got home I kinda threw a fit...

But it didn't detour me. I was determined to be a cheerleader! So when i got to college I was super excited to hear we had a cheer team. So of course I tried out. I was SO nervous. I didn't think I was going to make it....& I prayed that they wouldn't torture us like they did in high school making everyone sit in the gym & watch who makes it. Luckily they just gave you a number & after the tryouts posted a list of the numbers who made it. I remember walking up to the list shaking & praying to God. I went up to the list...& at first glance I didn't see my number....a pit started to form in my stomach....but as I looked closer there I saw my number...3rd on the list. I made it. I made the cheer team. I was a cheerleader. I called my mom crying. I was hysterical. We both were. Finally my hard work paid off & I got to live my dream.

Before I transferred to San Diego State University I attended Sonoma State University...& no I don't really know what a seawolf is?

Okay sorry I got sidetracked....but when I think football, I think cheerleaders......so overall i LOVE my Ohio stuff...it got me even more excited for football season!

 and nothing is better than ending the day watching some pre-season football & having a nice cold drink....with my Ohio State koozie of course!

Thank you Holly for my amazing Ohio themed package....oh & did I mention she gave me this amazing recipe to make Buckeyes...it includes chocolate & peanut butter...i mean is there a better combo...don't be jealous.

so what do you think the next theme should be for our snail mail package?!

That is such a fun idea!! Snail mail is so underrated these days, I love that you're keeping it alive in a fun and unique way! Your next theme should be favorite music or movies, then you can send each other your favorite dvd or cd! :)

Melissa said...

I have a few penpals...I love handwriting letters and I love getting snail mail (who doesn't?)...but I love that you two are doing themes! Super cute pics!


Al said...

LOVE this! you are freaking adorable in your gear :) Isn't it the best getting something in the mail? Such thought it takes to physically send something, rather than just the stroke of a button.

but that doesn't mean I didn't put thought and love into this comment ;)

Happy tuesday, love!!

"Only one team in this series can crank up their defense enough to win them games.

The Warriors’ offense feeds off that stingy defense — with or without Stephen Curry in the lineup, again Tuesday it was without — and the combination can lead to big runs.

Such as a 34-12 fourth quarter. It was historic, as our own Dan Feldman pointed out on twitter.

Golden State trailed by 17 at one point but came on in the fourth with a defensive energy that held Damian Lillard to 0-of-3 shooting and his entire Portland team to 26.5 percent shooting. Those miss shots fueled transition buckets and opportunities — Klay Thompson had 10 of his 27 points on the night in the fourth — and the Warriors roared back for a 110-99 victory.

Golden State now leads the series 2-0 as it heads to Portland, with Game 3 not until Saturday. The biggest question is whether Curry will play in that game, or will the Warriors use their position of strength to get him more rest (as they did in the Houston series up 2-0)?

The best player on the floor in Game 2 was Draymond Green, who finished with 17 points (on 20 shots), 14 rebound and seven assists. But that’s not where the damage he does starts — it’s on defense. His ability to defend the five, then show out high on pick-and-rolls to cut off Lillard or C.J. McCollum and take away their shots from three. With Curry out, Green also spends a lot of time as the guy initiating the Warriors offense. He crashes the boards. He protects the paint, including a key block late on Mason Plumlee. Green did it all."
