Happy hump day! I am sure excited that there are only two more days left until the weekend! It has been such a crazy week - my internet and phone was out the entire weekend and I have been getting ready for my pre-conference and observation (which occurred today and I feel good about it)! I also had a farewell dinner with a family friend after school Monday and an amazing barre workout last night.
Anyway, how was your weekend? I am hoping you enjoyed one or some of the awesome things that went on in Cleveland this past weekend. I attended the Cleveland State vs Milwaukee game Saturday - well, I cheered in it! The cheerleading alumni game took place Saturday and it was a blast! I was able to pull my round-off back handspring and liberty stunt (hoping to share pictures soon - they are on actual cameras that do not belong to me)! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take part in any other fun event because of make-up high school basketball games (I coach cheer) and preparing for my observation.
Now, here is your Get-Out-Of-The-House To-Do List for the weekend!
