A Winning Weekend

I'll let the pictures do the talking in this post but this weekend was GOLDEN. On Saturday, I had a work training. Olympian Dee Dee Trotter spoke to our students about the importance of team work and achieving your personal goals. And people.....I got to HOLD A GOLD MEDAL. I'm sure you all know how much I love the Olympics. I nearly cry when they are over and my life is dedicated to them for weeks. If I even think about the USA Gymnastics team winning the team gold this past summer, I get emotional. To meet an Olympic gold medalist and get to see a gold (and bronze!) medal in person is like a dream come true since my dreams of being an Olympian are over. :)

As if that wasn't enough, the Giants swept the Tigers in the World Series last night. On my feet for the bottom of the 10th inning, clenching my hands together, shooing Kitty out of the way so I wouldn't step on her, my sweaty brow and palms required me to turn on the ceiling fan. I was stressed folks. I've watched my fair share of baseball games this month (too many, perhaps) and it felt AMAZING to let that tension and stress leave my body last night and feel relief!

 Two World Series titles in 3 years?! So proud to be a Giants fan!

AND....the election is almost over. THANK GOODNESS.
