Cupcakes-I devoured 2 cupcakes this weekend from Coco’s Cupcakes in Pittsburgh and they were DELICIOUS!
Things I’m excited about
I’ve got my skates and all of my protective gear including a bright blue helmet! I’ve been researching everything derby, reading derby blogs, watching videos. I’m so excited about practicing, getting to know my teammates, learning more about the game, and eventuaIly playing! I went to a bout in Pittsburgh this weekend and it was…inspiring. As soon as I got home, I slept (what!? it was late…), but the next day I woke up bright and early to practice on my crossovers! Definitely improving, but still not where I want to be. Derby girls have pretty creative names. A few of my favorite from the bout this weekend were Rachel Slur, Skid Ho, Blue Scream of Death, Ally Mc Kill, and Mission Impassable. I have a few names I’m deciding between on a list, but I’m not going to mention them until it’s official. My top choice, Princess Slaya, had to be removed from the list because someone skates under that name in Kansas or something. Booo! Not to worry, I have something else up my sleeve. Just have to confer with the bffs and get their approvals.
Guest Post by Amber of Two Nuts in a Shell
I’m in a community for 20something year old bloggers called 20sb (if you’re a 20 something blogger and not a member, oin!). I love the community and without it I wouldn’t have half of the readers and awesome blogs to read, that I do now. We have special events within the community and this past week was the 7th blog swap. It’s an event where you’re matched at random with another blogger and they do a guest post on your blog and vice versa. It’s a nice way to meet anew blogger, get new readers, and have a different voice on your blog. I’m excited about the post Amber’s bringing to www.pinkielarue.com. I know you guys will love it.
The number is still dropping y’all! I can only fit into one pair of my jeans now and those are m “skinny” jeans. *dances* I’m still amazed at how much I’m losing JUST by counting calories
Oh and I entered a contest at The Nerdy Bird to win tickets to comic con in San Diego this summer. I am looking forward to winning that contest (I hope!). Tickets sold out months ago :/
