Friday Confessions: Skate Edition

Good morning, Kitschies!  Can you believe it's Friday already?!  I sure can't.  Nate is feeling better and he's off to school today, but we'll see if he lasts all day.  He had a very low-grade fever this morning but he had a lot more energy and was a lot less whiny.  I just hope he doesn't share whatever it was with his brother.  Or me.  Or his Dad.

I'm linking up with Mamarazzi at *Dandelion Wishes* for Friday Confessions.

I confess...
I have a new obsession.

I confess...
It's actually something good for me!

I confess...
It's roller derby.  If you've been following my blog for about the last month, that will be no surprise to you.

I confess...
I never thought I'd love roller derby.  I never thought I'd be one of *those* girls

I confess...
I was afraid to go to my first practice.

I wasn't afraid of not being able to skate - cuz I knew I could do *that*.

I was afraid that the girls there would be all "Oh...you're the *new* girl..." and give me a hard time, but it's been great.  All the girls are so helpful and willing to answer all my dumb noob questions.

I confess...
I got a little excited when I heard that practices go year-round.

I confess...
My new favorite movie is Whip It.  I love Ellen Page (who doesn't?!).  I recommend this movie, even if you don't like roller derby.

I confess...
I want this hoodie (but in different colors).

Awesome, right?

I confess...
I probably look like a derp out there on the track, all padded up and a bit wobbly.

But, you know what?  I don't care because I'm having FUN!

I confess...
I'm old enough to be a mom to some of the juniors (which is rather disheartening), but I don't care because I'm having fun.

I confess...
I love the tape I have on my skates.  It rocks.


I could go on and on...but I'll stop there. 


You KNOW you have something to confess!!  Link up HERE and bare your soul for the whole blogosphere to see!

Roller derby looks like lots of fun! That hoodie is really cool, too!

Do they have the hoodie in red? Have to ask - why the tape on the toes - a reason or just for looks.

Congratulations at finding a new interest that's also good for you! You look great out there! And I love your blog design. Cute!

Go YOU for doing roller derby! It's something on my to-do list, but guess I should learn to skate first. ;o)

Have a great weekend!
