17-9, and we WIN!!

Hi Guys!!
It's me, checking in.  Just in from our softball game, which was a blast!  Above is a picture of my sister, Shannon, and I after the game.  I absolutely LOVE being back on a team.  Bodybuilding is an individual sport, which I also love, but I really miss team sports.  We have a great team with great players and great attitudes.  You can't ask for anything better!  Our season lasts until May, I believe, then following there is a league team and co-ed team that I will play for.  Also, I will be coaching kids basketball!  That is so exciting for me!  I love kids, and basketball is my long lost love, so it couldn't be any better!  I am watering my yard tonight.  It hasn't been raining much lately.  It's been in the 90's everyday for the last week.  I went to the lake a couple times and laid out in the sun a few times too.  The warm weather makes you want to get out of the house and just do things, anything!  I watched Bedtime Stories last night.  Unlike Marley and Me, it was a fantastic movie!  Alright guys, it's time to run out and move the sprinklers!  Lets hope I don't spray myself in the face like I did the other night!! lol


...here is a funny picture of me playing the air guitar and Shannon, well, I'm not exactly sure what she was doing??!! lol

Happy Weekend...

Stopping in to wish you guys a happy weekend!  I'm heading out to pick up a few things for the house now.  Tomorrow is the NC State Bodybuilding Show.  I have a few friends competing and I will present a few trophies tomorrow night.  I guess I will head up there for prejudging in the morning as well.  I really enjoy prejudging and don't care much for the night shows.  I remember the exact moment of being on that stage in 2004.  That was so overwhelming, but fulfilling!!

Have a great weekend!

Talk soon!

I have NO IDEA why this stupid thing is underlining everything I type.  It's kind of funny but at the same time it's making me mad, lol.  I just want to type normal, dang it.  I went to church this morning.  Easter Sunday is always a cute little play, but today I was quite disappointed.  Basically, it was a reenactment of the last supper which led to us receiving communion.  That's it!!  Then the preacher had the sermon.  Our Christmas play is always amazing!  It's called "The Singing Christmas Tree."  I absolutely LOVE the singing/music at my church.  We have a huge choir, a band, drums, guitars, and much more; not to mention great soloist!  If they allowed Guitar Hero players in the band I'd be first in line, but sorry to say they don't.  AND I'm a great singer too, but wouldn't want to out-perform all the great talent we already have  :) ...sike!  My land has finally been tilled and seeded.  I spent hours the other night running in and out of the house, moving the sprinklers around to make sure it all had water ...It rained the next day - harder than it's rained in years!  See what I get for trying?!  It's really nice here today, weather in the 70's.  I have softball practice at 7:30 tonight.  We have a pretty awesome team; got some talent, baby!  As we said in high school, "Yeaaaaaaaaa Baaaaaby!"  It was pretty funny last week at our first practice, I haven't really played in about 2 years.  My batting was out of this world!  But, whew, my fielding ....uggghuuumm, did I say how great my batting was? lol.  I played some ball last night with my nephew.  He's 7 years old.  He's starting to get really good at baseball, but insist on playing soccer.  He was practicing pitching to me and I'm thinking dang, he's getting good, and then he says to me, "Britt, I don't really like baseball." lol.  Anyways, things have been really great around here lately.  Contest prep is  coming along as planned.  My life seems to be pretty enjoyable.  I think I've laughed more in the last month than I did all last year!  Also, my tree has survived!  That makes me happy!  I feel like such a good Mom!  But, I must tell you, never ever, never ever ever, put a boiled Easter egg in your pocket!  Especially one that you want to keep!  Yes, I would have failed Home-Ec class.  I watched the movie Marley and Me the other day.  What a horrible movie!!  I bought it!  I'm taking it back!  The dog dies in the end!!  I couldn't handle it... just couldn't handle it.  I was on the floor holding Deezy, sobbing, for about 30 minutes after the movie ended!!  Don't watch it!  And sorry for ruining the movie for you if you haven't seen it but just believe me, you wouldn't have wanted to see it anyways! lol.   Alright guys, I need to get a move on.  I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and I will be in touch soon!  And make sure you dye easter eggs!  Don't be a scrooge!  

Love Always,

Candid per request

So here's as candid as it gets guys. I've had quite a few request for candid pics around contest shape. These are a few days after 2007 Nationals (obviously after I stuffed myself silly, i.e. the protruding abs). Veins, bulging muscles, fading ProTan, it's all here. Hope you enjoy. I was shooting video and pictures simultaneously with FemFlex, but I have not the slightest clue what I was doing/thinking in these candid shots...

Training is coming along great!! What's all this controversy about the Tampa Pro?? Are they having it? or no? ...I'm confused but I wish [they] would make [their] minds up! I know you guys have always wanted to see Cin and I on-stage together, and we are trying to make that happen this year. TRYING!! :o) So we'll see! Stay tuned for that ;)

Have a great weekend!! I can't wait for Saturday...(Cheat meal night :) !!!! Mmmmm, steak!!
