Oh man, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Life has been going at full speed, and I’ve been enjoying the ride. Here are some of the best bits that have happened since the beginning of the year.
Visiting my sister and her family in Seattle (especially my adorable nephew, Jack).
He is, of course, the cutest baby ever. At least until I have my own kids. I had never spent any significant amount of time in Seattle, and it was cool to explore the area where Emrie and Matt have landed. I foresee spending a lot of time there if all their kids are going to be so cute.
Vacationing in Thailand
I told you that I won a week-long stay at the Fairtex gym in Thailand. In February I took advantage of that and spent an amazing two weeks vacationing in Thailand. It didn’t cover the cost of my flight, but they did pick me up from the airport after 26 hours of traveling. It was seriously the best vacation ever.
The whole first week I was getting up at 6:30 to train with real Muay Thai fighters by 7 am. You might not think that exercising sounds very vacation-like, but I LOVE Muay Thai. It was truly a blessing to wake up, walk outside my room, and start kicking bags.
Plus, there is delicious food EVERYWHERE in Thailand. The street vendors are amazing. My favorite was the guy that rolled his cart up and served the most simple, delicious bowl of noodle soup for 25 Baht (about 80 cents). He’d leave the bowl with you and pick it up the next time he rolled by.
Here’s a video of me practicing Muay Thai with the awesome trainer, Daew.
I’m already thinking of ways to get the time and resources to go back to Thailand. Next time I’m squeeze in some time to rent a beach bungalow.
My Entire Family Came To Visit In the Same Week (with almost no notice)
I won’t go into the details, but suffice it to say that it was a crazy, awesome week. My mom came to visit from a couple hours away. Emrie, Matt, and Jack stopped by twice from Seattle. And my dad and stepmom came by from Idaho. All in the same week!
Starting My Own Business
I haven’t started it yet, so I’ll save that information for another post. But I’m spending a lot of my free time with planning and preparation.
Well, that’s my life in a nutshell the last couple months. What have you all been up to?
