This morning my tennis buddy Vaughn and I played early at the Druid Hill Park tennis courts. We have been such geeks about our game and were texting late last night about the joy of pink tennis balls and if we should wear matching outfits to play this morning. I swear the joy of using fresh, pink balls is what motivated us to get up at 7:30 am on a Saturday. I had to snap this shot of our cute new balls and of course posted it to IG and FB. Eric wonders why I take so many photos. I seriously don't know. I'm social. I guess I put everything out there to share in my zest for life and geeky preppiness. I'm not sure. Is that weird? Probably, but I don't really care. It's like a game to me and I enjoy it. I need all the joy in my life I can get right now and posting photos is FREE and super fun. I love following friends that I haven't seen in years, friends I love but are too far away, and random people that have great taste and fun food obsessions. The preppiness factor of this photo was just too wonderful not to post. My @girltuesday created the hashtag #PFP for Preppy Fist Pump. I don't know @girltuesday in real life but I love her. I send out these photos to the universe and find other like minded people. Isn't that what Twitter is all about? And aren't pink balls just the cutest thing of all time? Someone Tweeted with the question of where I got the monogrammed water bottle. Two Augusts ago, almost to the DAY, EAS from Let the Tide Pull Your Dreams Ashore posted the cutest decal giveaway. Alice from Summer is a Verb posted the DIY decal water bottle project. I was hooked and ordered my decal from 2 Preppy Girls and had a water bottle from Target that I affixed it upon. Enjoy the links and keep posting the wonderful, random, funny, foodie, garden-y and joyful photos that you do, oh friends of the universe!
Thanks and love to my sweet EAS who I have gotten to know in real life this past year. It has been so fun meeting someone, as I've said on this blog before, that I met via the blogosphere. It is so weird, but I love it. To Alice and MKO'G I know we will meet in the real world some day too. Looking forward to it, and until then...I'll see you on Twitter. Vaughn, as always thanks for motivating me to get up SO early, run lines, and for pink tennis balls! Preppy Fist Pumps, Nelle xoxo
