Saturday Memes


Today's theme is: BRIDGES

When I was in college, I went on a tour with the Weber State Marching Band to Europe (I was the majorette and rifle twirler). Our competition was in London and then we toured Paris, Belgium, Amsterdam, and some other cities. Someday I will have to post about my excursion in Red Light District! Whew! We actually marched across the Westminster Bridge in London in a parade that was strickly for those of us in the International Competition. It was shown on International TV. London is amazing!

This is me and my friend Jody standing on the Westminster Bridge that goes over the Thames River in London. That is Big Ben in the background. The picture quality is bad because they weren't in acid free albums. It was so long ago, I don't think they made them back them!

Here we are in the parade marching across the Westminster Bridge. ↓ I am the one in the skimpy purple costume in the middle. It was a very foggy day and FREEZING!!!

Here we are again at Royal Albert Hall getting ready to perform. You can see my purple costume underneath my white shirt. I did the rifle routines and then had to rip this uniform off and do my baton numbers! Hmm...

A better picture of Westminster Bridge.
We also got to see Tower Bridge while there.

To play go HERE



1. What time of day do you usually play Saturday 9?
I just started doing it, but I usually try and do it on Friday before I go to bed, but it wasn't up!
2. At 9AM on a weekday, what are you doing?
Usually on my run or just getting back. Or in the shower or on my blog.
3. At 9PM on any given night, what would you most like to be doing?
Dishes, cleaning, helping the boys homework, or computing.
4. What is your most frequent activity online?
Blogging! Email or Facebooking.
5. Is there one day of the week that seems to fly by? If yes, why?
Probably Wednesdays since they are my busiest usually.
6. Do you agree that the older you get, the faster time seems to go by?
YES! Why is that btw???
7. What is your favorite thing to do with free time?
Read, write, blog, bake, go to lunch with friends.
8. How much time do you spend alone? Would you like it to be more? Less?
I now have more time alone than I ever have. I really enjoy spending time alone. I could always use more, but I also really enjoy being with my family and friends too.
9. If you could spend one hour doing something what would it be?
Hmm...that's tough. Probably the same as #7. Or taking a long hot shower, going to a movie, just being still and meditating over life.

Enjoy your weekend!

That is so cool you were able to travel to Europe. I have been there and it is so different than over here. Did you get any of their chocolate? It is the best I have ever had!!
