Shakira Grand Slam

Posted on July 22, 2014 by under Videos, Zumba.    

Here’s some trivia for you. Did you know that Shakira has performed at three consecutive FIFA World Cup finals events? Oh, yes. And she was amazing all three times.

Here’s the proof.

FIFA 2006 (Germany)

FIFA 2010 (South Africa)

FIFA 2014 (Brazil)

All three songs are huge in the Zumba world. Seriously. Not just these three, actually. She has so many great songs that are perfect for Zumba. You could do a whole class of just all Shakira songs (though you’re not really supposed to do that). Just saying. I love Shakira! And, apparently I’m not alone. FIFA loves her too.

Rustier Than a Hundred-Year Old Nail

Posted on July 19, 2014 by under Games, Poker.    

We played poker at Nilla’s last night. Ugh. I played like such a novice. Last night made me realize how rusty I am. We need to start playing poker regularly stat.

Congratulations to our friend Becca who made the final table and chopped the prize!

April said that she saw a poster for chess tournaments, which they also have at Nilla’s. I was thinking I might actually fare better at that. Unlike poker, Brian and I have actually been playing a lot of chess lately.

Misty’s Belated Birthday Celebration

Stacy, Cari, Brian, and I celebrated with Misty at Bonefish Grill last Wednesday. Her birthday was actually Thursday, July 10, but we didn’t get a chance to get together because we all had busy weekends.

Last weekend Brian and I had a practice round with mom and dad at Derby Bowl. We bowled 20 games between the four of us. Mom and Brian bowled four games each before they had enough. Dad wanted to practice his sparing and wen’t for two more games. I kept him company so dad and I both bowled six games.

The practice round actually worked. I bowled my first 200 game on our league that Sunday. I’m thinking if I practice more, I may bowl even more 200 games and I’ll finally be able to make my goal of bowling a 500 series.

Saturday night was Starlite Fun night with the Dills and the Phelpi. I really thought that I’d be able to stick around for all three movies. The second movie ended well after 3 AM. I wanted to see The Fault in Our Stars but we would have been there until morning. As it was we were extremely exhausted when we got home.

Sunday was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat day with my little sister. It was my first time seeing the show and I thought it was fantastic. Kira was singing and dancing along in her seat.

Immediately after the show Brian and I had to rush to mom and dad’s in Derby for league night. It was a heck of a busy weekend. Thus, we couldn’t celebrate with Misty and the gang until later. It worked out for the best though because we had the good fortune of getting together on “Bang Wednesday” at Bonefish. It’s the best day to be there. Since all of the “Bang Bang” items were on special it didn’t cost much to treat Misty for her birthday dinner. Heck, her drinks cost way more than her food. LOL.

Belated Happy Birthday, Misty! Cheers!

Officially a Member of the 200 Club

Posted on July 16, 2014 by under Games.

I finally bowled my first 200 game on league night. Brian did it a few weeks ago when he bowled a 204. I kept telling him that I’m capable of bowling a 200 game also, but I’d never been able to prove it until last Sunday. I’ll usually start out really well but then I choke halfway through so I never quite make it to 200. I’m so glad it finally happened.

Brian said he believed that I could bowl a 200 game though he’d never seen me do it. However, I still felt like I needed to prove myself. I bowled a 208, 4 pins higher than his highest game ever. I just had to prove my bowling prowess. LOL.

20140713_200839

I wish that I would have bowled better on my first two games because I only bowled a 499 series. I really wanted to break 500. That’s going to be my next goal.

Either way, I’m excited for league night this Sunday. I’m hoping to see my name in weekly stats sheet. Oowa! Oowa!
