Also known as, the introduction of my new hobby that has taken over my LIFE ;)
Head on over to Jamie's blog to link up all the things you're currently loving!!
1} I'm loving that Gerrad (and the girls) got me the gray TOMS I've been wanting, for Mother's Day. And they got me some super cute new travel coffee mugs, whoop!
2} I'm loving that this Mother's Day was one of my favorites so far. Gerrad got up early and went and got my favorite breakfast, and brought it home along with my gifts, my dad brought over the sweetest card ever, made me cry (what else is new). Then we went to church, then to lunch with G's family which was fun as always. After that we came home and my mom came over to watch the girls for a bit, and Gerrad and I went to play 9 holes of golf (more on that in a minute), then we came home and grilled steaks with my mom. It was a wonderful day, and makes me so very thankful for my amazing family!
3} So the weekend before last, I decided that there was no time like the present, to take up golfing. Gerrad and I had hit balls one time, and after chatting for a bit about it, we decided that playing 9 holes would be good practice, so why not! So we loaded up our clubs, and Gerrad, my friend Ashley, and I all hit the links. That day was a huge flop for me, but I had to remind myself it was my FIRST time playing. Then Gerrad and I went again Monday evening, and then Wednesday evening, and then played again on Sunday for Mother's Day. I took a lesson Monday night, and feel a LOT better about my swing, which I was struggling with when it came to my irons.
4} I love my new clubs (except I ditched the bag for a dk gray/baby blue bag), and I love even more that we scored a heck of a deal on them on craigslist! Sometimes my husbands cheapness is beneficial :o)
5} I love that one of G's golfing buddies was giving him a hard time about teaching me to golf, and told Gerrad he was opening a can of worms he didn't want to deal with, because I'd always want to go with him, but that my sweet hubs defended me and said it was something fun that we could do together! I can't wait to keep improving my game, and play in a few tournaments this summer! Thanks for giving me the push to play, G! *Pardon the fact that this whole post is about golf, can you tell I'm loving learning how to play??? :)
