Cobras, VJays, and another Tired Panda

Holy random animals batman.

Woof, it was another doozyfun weekend y'all.

I'm coming to you rocking five hours [or less] of sleep after landing around midnight last night. Thank goodness I'm hidden behind a computer screen at work, because today is a jeans and North Face kind of day. I can't wait to pass out in my bed at 9:00pm on the dot tonight. 

This weekend I.....

...Headed down to the A-T-L for a double kickball weekend. Le Husband and I and another teamie of ours, jumped on another team for the tourney and flew down Friday. It was two short flights, but a long day of traveling for sure. 

...Saw Le Husband be mistaken for a MMA fighter and a wrestler at the airport. HashtagImarriedastud.
...Managed to NOT freakout on either of my flights. If you read here normally, you'll know I'm NOT a happy flier [to say the least]. But, I managed to keep it together better than ever this weekend. I think it is due to the fact there were both super short flights.

...Drove an hour outside of Atlanta to visit a couple that is good friends with Le Husband. He hadn't seen them in a long time, and their super busy jobs prevented them from coming to the wedding. It was so nice to finally meet them and we enjoyed a deliciously awesome dinner. Their two kids were precious and I hope we get to see them again soon.

...Passed the beep out afterwards because we were exhausted.

...Woke up at the crack of dawn for game day! It was great seeing the team again and I'm kind of bummed it was our last tournament with them. They are a great group of peeps and I am so glad they were willing to pick us up for the past two tourneys.

...Rocked my pink and white socks..#natch

...Had a really good day of kickball. Made some clutch catches, routine plays and did decent getting on base.

...Had a bummer of a play that was part of a scoring run that led us into a loss. It was a tough play, but one I thought I could have made. It was for sure a bummer, since we could have won the game with out my and other people's mistakes. Losing sucks.

...Lost in the Final Four...poop.

...Tried to make it out to the after party, but after two fortyfive minute delays it was way too late to go out, since I had another tournament the next day and had to be at the fields at 8am. #nosleepthisweekend.

...Played in my FIRST EVER Women's tournament. And had a freaking blast. My DC team didn't travel, so I jumped on one of the Atlanta teams and it was such a great group of ladies.

...Rejoiced immensely that the sun made an appearance after forecasts of a full day of rain. The morning was cold, wet and miserable, but luckily the sun decided to make an appearance around noon which made the day much more enjoyable.

...Got FRIED on my face because I forgot to put on sunscreen since it was sooooo rainy in the morning. I'm usually a rockstar at putting on sunscreen at tourneys but the clouds and rain really messed me up. Thank goodness for good, light foundation that hides my sunburn afterglow.

....Had an awesome tourney with a ton of sack-flies and great plays on defense. I was put in the outfield in our last two games and had a soccer style stop [that got me a lecture from Le Husband] and then had a CLUTCH diving catch. Guess my baseball playing husband can teach a soccer girl to catch. ;)!

...Almost peed my pants twice. I was chugging water to stay hydrated, but since it was so cold I wasn't sweating. So, by the end of each game I was doing the potty dance in the outfield. Sorry about the TMI, but it was a major happening this weekend.

...Became nostalgic for my soccer playing past. The women's tournament was held at a soccer complex and there were games going on all around us. It brought back amazing memories of playing weekend soccer for 13 years. Man, I miss those days!

...Lost again in the final four. It was a bummer of a lose, but it was still a great day of kickball. No one would have picked our team to be in the final four and we rocked it out. 

...Made some awesome new friends. I seriously had a blasty playing kickball with these ladies and am so excited about some of the new friendships that were formed. We played great, looked fabulous [duh] and kicked some serious @$$! VVJJJJJJJJJS!

...Enjoyed a fabulous Lime-A-Rita while watching the finals. After two days and fourteen kickball games, I think I earned it!

...Could barely walk after it was all said in done. My normal speedwalking self was at the back of the pack walking through the airport. I need another massage STAT.

...Enjoyed the blessing of a quick, easy flight home. 

...Landed just before midnight. 

...Drove an hour home and passssssssssed out around 2am.

...Woke up to this explosion. That's what happens when you land SO LATE and can't find your wallet. It will be gone after a delicious Pollo Rico dinner tonight, but I was not wasting sleep time cleaning it up this morning.

Coffee IV is in and I'm plugging away at work. WOOF!

I hope y'all had a great weekend!

Linking up with these beautiful ladies today.
