hello out there! wishing a loving valentine's day to all. i'm going to be spending the romantic day on a couples vacation with the family. kind of awkward, huh? but super fun with my family..that is, after this marathon day of classes is over, james and i are driving out to scottsdale, AZ...should make it by midnight. i'm having trouble paying attention in class today because i can't wait to get on the road!
the weekend will be filled with fun activities some of which include (i am the only family member that knows about these mandatory activities so far):
1) family swim. they don't know it yet, but we have swim workouts planned for the family. the resort has a 25yd lap pool... i brought extra goggles, so no excuses, dad or dan!
2) speaking of swimming...james is being challenged (by me) to a valentine's day swim meet....the meet includes a 200 free, 100 free, 50 free, and 100IM. i pretty much predict a clean sweep by me (swim coachs hux and coleen at Encinitas YMCA have really helped me improve my stroke over the past 6 weeks and i am getting FAST (for a slow swimmer). i have never been as fast as james, but i'm feeling bold. and i've got the eye of the tiger. it's ON! he only stands a chance in 2 events (50free and 200free). oh, and this is the first he is hearing of the swim challenge. bring it!
3) at least a set of tennis. i packed my tennis skirt that i bought 2 years ago and have been dying to wear. but seeing as how i don't play tennis....so i plan on playing just enough tennis to justify putting on my tennis skirt.
other than that, we'll be doing lots of eating, hiking, biking and relaxing. hopefully a little spa-ing thrown in there.
finishing this post off with a couple valentines. one for miss ross:
and one for james:
