Had an awesome Valentine’s Day! Was able to see Anne for about 20 min after practice!
We walked to town yesterday as it reached 70 degrees!☀️ talked with the locals ….. So fun! They love to practice their English with us. A Russian mother and her daughter with 2 friends stopped to chat with us. The 3 children, just learning English would look at us and giggle everytime we spoke! As we left them the one little girl named Sophia would continually repeat “good-bye” over and over. It was one of the few English words she knew! We took a pic with them!
One of the goalie moms and I ran across a fish spa and yup we did it! I was freaking out but thought why not? I’ll never do this again! It feels like a massage, that is AFTER you get use to fish eating the dead skin off your feet! Gross when you think of it but have to say my feet felt great after.. I know… You’re thinking whatever!!!
We also came across this local with the little monkey and parrot so took a pic
Went to the p&g house and saw this show in the Olympic park. The video did not upload so here is a pic
Been a little while! We’ve been busy with games here. Obviously not the finish we had hoped for with Canada obviously but the best thing is that we didn’t play our best so the best is yet to come for us in these next 2 games. Also, some may have noticed I was gone almost all of the 3rd period in that game then returned with about 5minutes remaining – I was in our locker room getting stitched up by our doc! (picture below.. don’t look if that stuff makes you white in the face ha) I took a skate to the wrist during a scrum in front of the net, I’m totally fine tho! It’s healing fast and I skated today so it won’t keep me out by any means!
Got to see our families!! FINALLY! It was definitely a refresher. My friend Alethea Lamberson was able to make the trip through her work with Athletes in Action so got to see her also! She’s been hanging with my family from time to time too which is fun and makes it to all of our games as a super super fan. Adam wasn’t there Wednesday night after the game with us but will be getting in Saturday night to Sochi. I know he is excited and I am too! 🙂 (picture of us 4 at the USA P&G house below)
My whole family is here – YES, even you Grandma Rosie & Grandma Kay! – you two look fabulous standing next to me in front of the Olympic rings! (see picture below) On a serious note, it is like you all are here. I appreciate you all checking in with me and sending me love from afar 🙂 Love you!
ps. Not to rub it in but it was 66 degrees today 😉 Sure made me a happy camper!
