Roller Derby Wrap Up

Well, the roller derby has come & gone... on February 12th.

I have to say, although it was fun seeing our own Molly Lagrou out there doing her thing & the Derby Vixens smoke the opposing team, I was a teeny tiny bit bored! It was such a blow out game that there was really no competition at all from the other team! Way to go Derby Vixens! However, for my first roller derby, I was really hoping for some knock down, drag out action!

Oh well! It was still a fun experience & we will definitely have to do it again when the teams are more evenly matched for a real nail biter event! (Notice the scoreboard in the background... Derby Vixens have 86 to the opposing team's 7 points & that was only in the first period!!)

Sushi Night Wrap Up...

Well, it seems that 3 times really WAS a charm! We had our biggest turnout to date at our 3rd attempt at a Sushi Night and boy did we have a good time!

There were 7 of us total & we met at 7:00 pm at Sansu. A kotatsu style table, low to the ground, was reserved under the name Red Tent.

As we began to filter in, a couple drinks were ordered.... including some Asian Pear sake! Then we began the tedious but mouth watering process of narrowing down our sushi choices! In the end we decided on 9 rolls to share (7 different ones!) and a teriyaki chicken Bento box as well. Our sushi order included a complimentary house salad with ginger dressing & miso soup, which you drank from the small bowl, rather than using a spoon.  Several gals ordered the delicious seaweed salad as well.  So, we were all very well fed!

We finished up with our food around 10:00 & decided to call it a night after paying our tabs.

What a great night! Of the 7 gals, we had four "first-timers", who we hope will continue to join us at more events in the future! And thanks of course to our "multi-timers" as well! We're glad you keep coming back for more!

Simply Irresistable...

Happy 2011! 

I'm excited to be starting a new year... it means, new chances, new choices, new friends, new places...

I've never been a "resolution" kindof girl, but this year I made some in my heart.... I'll share them with you now....

I've decided to:
*be true to my best self....find that person & live her to the fullest...
*get happy with my body
*more fully develop my existing friendships & seek out new ones
*travel more
*adventure more
*live more - absorb life more fully - spend more time living & less time just existing
*show the people I love, how much I love them, through my actions more than my words

The other day that song by Robert Palmer "Simply Irresistible" came on the radio. And I thought, that is what I want to be. Simply irresistible to the people around me. Irresistible because I glow with a deep seeded happiness that is bubbling up from within. A happiness that has come from taking charge of my life...owning it. Making changes, whatever they may be, to promote my current & future happiness. For me, that means, stepping out of the staleness of the routines or bad habits that have come to define my life. Pushing myself to try new things, even things I don't like. Committing to taking care of myself to the best of my ability...with no excuses. I want to fill my own cup first so that I may nourish others from the overflow.

If your new year's resolution's list includes spending more time nurturing yourself, making new friends or trying new things, won't you join us at our next function?!
We are attempting our Sushi Night for the 3rd time... Three times' a charm, right?! Friday, January 21st at 7 pm.

Sign up today on the bulletin board to the left when you come in the front entrance at school. There is limited space available as we continue to seek to meet in an intimate space in order to develop deep & true lifelong friendships! Once you sign up, details will be emailed to you.

Write your lives so that others may be illuminated. Sark
