Random Life Goings On

Yeah, I know that's not a real word, but I wasn't sure how to describe this post haha...

Last week I wrote that I would be playing in a golf tournament.  It didn't go so well.  I played the front nine on the first day really well, then I hit two bad shots on the back that resulted in me hitting off a curb and two tree roots and reaggravating an injury I've had since high school.  It's a long story, but I basically have permanent nerve damage in my elbow and wrist, and all you need to know or probably care is that it stinks.  So, I had to withdraw [if you follow me on Twitter or IG, you probably read ignored my whiny posts] and now I'm out of commission for a couple weeks.

I got a new phone last week!  And a new plan!  Now [thanks to Verizon] I get cell service in my house.  Yes, it's a big deal.  Before, I could only make calls from my driveway... that was a pain in the neck in the winter.  I got a Samsung Galaxy S4 and am OBSESSED with it!  There are sooo many cool features: 13 megapixel camera, tons of camera modes, eye scrolling and recognition [basically if I'm watching a video and look away, the video pauses... yeah. cool.]  Oh, and I also bought a pink Otter Box and insurance so I hopefully won't break it when I drop it constantly.  
Said goodbye to my Evo that survived three long, hard years.  Good work, little buddy.

And some of the first new photos with my Galaxy!  Mike's goddaughter was Poppy Princess in the Memorial Day parade, and the second one is an action shot of her swinging - good quality, right?

In the last Cara Box I participated in, Anissa sent me some seeds.  Well, they're growing!  How exciting is that?  These are photos from the past month:

Mike and I saw The Great Gatsby this weekend.  It was fantastic!  We've done this thing for the past few months where we see one movie that was a preview in the previous movie we saw.  First [and yes, this was the first movie we saw in probably a year] was Les Miserables, then Identity Thief, and now Gatsby.  Seriously, go see it!  We loved it! 

Remember when I did that Titleist photo shoot last month??  Well, my dad texted me last week that I made it onto their website!  I'm sooooo excited!  Now I just have to buy every golf magazine all summer and look for myself ;) I'm so humble, right?
That's me in the background [purple polo] on the top second photo, my back to the left of that [in purple], and me looking far too serious next to that!

I'm also soooo far behind in blog reading!  What have you been up to?  Got something awesome for me to read, link me up :)

Sorry to hear about your tournament - hopefully you'll get better soon! I signed up for a few tournaments next month, and since I left my clubs on the east coast, I can justify getting a new set of irons.... :-)

So sorry to hear the tournament didn't go as you had hoped. I'm sure it still felt good to be out there. I hope the injury isn't too bad.

Hope you feel better soon and your injury doesn't keep you from playing for too long! Love the pictures on the Titleist website, how cool!

Sorry to hear about the tournament and your injury. The new phone is super exciting though! I've been looking into getting a new phone and that's one that I was considering. That's awesome that your pictures are on the Titleist website!

I have a pretty serious golf tourney that I play in every year. Its our end of the year golf tournament, and by serious I mean for most people, it is the one time of the year we play golf :)

Hope you are feeling better!

I hope your injury doesn't keep you from playing for long! That sucks :/ I can't wait to get a new phone, yours looks really nice. Congrats on your photos making it onto the website! That is pretty awesome!

Oh no!! That stinks that you reinjured yourself. :( Your seeds are growing so fast!
