My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size

Leaving On A Jet Plane!

Today is the day!  I’m off to Scottsdale, Arizona for my EWGA Cup golf weekend.
ewga cupI’m traveling tonight with 2 other team members.  We get to Scottsdale around 10pm local time.  We’ve got a shuttle coming to get us to the condo (which is on the 9th green of the course!), and if our teammates who are already there know what is good for them, there will be a nice, cold Corona waiting for me!

I’m looking forward to playing a practice round tomorrow, hitting the driving range Saturday, and then competing Sunday and Monday.  At some point in there I also hope to spend some time napping poolside!

The tournament organizers have a busy weekend lined up for us:

  • registration Friday/Saturday
  • rules meeting Saturday 5pm
  • player reception Saturday night
  • 10am Sunday – shotgun start first round matches (I start with 4 ball)
  • Sunday – “Winder Wonderland Mixer” with entertainment by Shades of Grey.  No idea who they are, but hopefully they will be good.
  • 9am Monday – shotgun start second round matches (My singles match day)
  • awards luncheon following matches
  • Monday night – Casino night.

According to an update I got this morning from the girls who flew down yesterday, it’s a bit rainy today, but supposed to be nice starting tomorrow.  Both weather apps I have on my phone concur:

scottsdale weather

I’m looking forward to a fun weekend of sun, golf, and a few laughs along the way.  Can’t wait.

Now, just need the afternoon to fly by so I can get outta here!

Feel free to send positive golf vibes my way!

It’s Rest Day

Tuesday is a day off for me.  I used to spend my Tuesday wishing I was at the gym.

rest-dayNow that my son plays hockey Tuesday nights, I don’t miss the gym as much.  Instead I freeze my butt off at the Magna Centre and watch him play.

Tonight is extra busy as I have a massage at 5:45, a guy is coming to give us an estimate on some new kitchen cupboards at 7, and then the hockey game at 8:50.

Making the most of my rest day for sure!


How do you survive rest days?
