off week

Hey Gang!

We the Beat have had a hard go getting it started this season.  So the international break is coming at the best time for us. Our coaches know we need a mental break. Many of us are planning on heading home to see boyfriends and family.  A few have husbands or boyfriends that they are taking with them to the beach! One of the awesome things about living in a new city or state is getting to explore all the awesome unique places around. Savannah is the apparent location of choice. I have never been sounds like a fun trip and pretty close!! My plans include heading to the great state of Alabama to spend time with my wonderful parents. I haven’t seen them in a few months and they have just returned from a cruise!! We will have a great time catching up and looking at the hundreds of pictures that my mom took!! I’m also excited to SLEEP IN!!! Anyone have any opinions on what else I should do??

On another note. Between practices today some of the girls and I enjoyed the new grass and tried to get rid of our soccer tans… mission unsuccessful. The stadium was amazing though!!

beach trip!!

Hey gang!!

As some of you may have seen in my twitter, I am at the beach!! Auburn Soccer is in the semi finals of the SEC Tournament in Orange Beach, Alabama. We beat Ol’ Miss on Wednesday at the Orange Beach Soccerplex. It was a great win (current 5-0 win streak I think) and got to avenge the regular season loss earlier this season.

Who do we play in the semifinals? LSU… Auburn’s SEC West rival. This highly anticipated game will kick off at 5:00 pm cst Friday. It should be on game tracker, radio, and possible the SEC online website.

Ok now that all the soccer talk is done… the beach has been awesome!!! Beach walks, playing in the waves, runs, hot tub, coffee, waves, burying people in the sand, good food (that’s free!!) , and naps on the balcony have fit in between my work schedule. The staff condo handles treatment, all meals, laundry, and odd jobs. In addition to these daily tasks we have practices, games, and film duties. Don’t you worry there has been plenty of work going on along with the beach fun. The staff are doing all we can to win tonight’s game and have another 2 days at the beach.

My favorite times this week have been getting up early each day for a run, walk on the beach, and then coffee on the balcony to watch the world wake up. I love vacations!! (even if this is a working one!)

WAR EAGLE! Beat LSU!

So as a continuation of the last comic, this is another event that occurred on the Weekend of Amazingness – subtitle: Guitar Hero Overload. This really happened. Lasted about 15 minutes before we figured it out. Enjoy!
