Photo Friday

Today is FINALS DAY in NCA college cheerleading nationals world. For one brief moment of the year, my inner cheerleader kicks in, I come out of retirement (in my mind at least - there is NO way my body can do that anymore!), and I thrive on the excitement of watching (from my computer now) the best college teams in the country compete. I can almost feel the adrenaline and atmosphere of finals as if I were there again... Oh how I miss the thrill of being on that mat and performing!
This was taken my senior year, not of our team, but of Hawaii Pacific... one of my favorites. Tiffany-blue uniforms and real Hawaiian leis? So adorable!

Have a beautiful Spring weekend!

Oh that is so fun! I never was a cheerleader and my high school didn't have considering it was all girls. I'm watching the Masters right now and am really missing playing golf! Have fun watching the cheer leading!

Also, I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog right now!

Oh girl I am so with you. I am obsessed with watching cheerleading competitions, brings back great memories. Oh how I wish I could still do a scorpion!! :)

Happy weekend pretty lady!

Sooo cool that you were a cheerleader. I've never gone to a school that had any...weird right. High school was an all-girls Catholic school (no football team to cheer for) and then college was Europe and well, they just don't have them! So tragic. I love watching them---so incredible! xoxo

I used to be a cheerleader in the NFL and I have to tell you that I take my hat on to college cheerleaders: the routines they do are amazing to watch!

i can hardly wait until muffy tries out! :-) she already owns several "uniforms" -- cheering is so, SO, fun! In Alabama we also were in charge of making all the banners for the games...such fun! Go, fight, WIN!

HA! I am with you there. Watching those competitions brings back the inner cheerleader in me as well. I tried doing a touch toe last week while outside playing with my son and boy did it hurt and not that good but oh well! Found your blog thru Trish and love it. SO much fun and cute! Signed up to follow you! Have a great weekend and come visit if you ever get the chance! http://kitchenbelleicious.blogspot.com

Just found your blog, and love it! And can I just say, you're so lucky you actually got to participate as a cheerleader. I loved, and still love watching all the competitions, and wished I had done that. I chose tennis. But I guess at least I can still use tennis... But cheerleading is so much fun!

Hey what team were you on?! I'm also a retired college cheerleader and have some great memories from Datona. Love your blog by the way!
