Merry Christmas to Me

This year I bought myself a Christmas gift. Not jewelry or new skates or a new coat — I treated myself to a new tattoo. I wanted to get an old boring one covered up, so I met with an artist who’s inked some of my derby girls. We chose flowers because they work nicely as coverups, and because I wanted to add some beauty to my body and my life after an admittedly wretched past year or so. The flowers are tropical, and remind me of my sister, and nieces when they were babies in Key West. Plus it’s gonna look so rad on the flat track.

I’m so happy with it. As the artist did the work — Kristen, I totally recommend her — we chatted about life. She said to me that she thought it was awesome that I am doing something nice for myself, and that this ink will mark the end of one bad part of my life and accompany me into the next, better chapter. I agree. Would you like to see it?

Pumpkin Cupcakes & Cream Cheese Frosting


I made pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting this weekend, and had my friends’ kids decorate them. Their handiwork above. I cannot recommend the Martha Stewart recipes enough! Give them a try — they’re so easy.

Jersey Shore Rollergirls

And here are some photos I took at the Jersey Shore Rollergirls derby bout this past weekend. I’m not good enough with my camera to get great shots, so there’s a lot of blur, as these girls move FAST. Anyway, the bout was so much fun. Really got me pumped up to make more progress on my own and someday compete. I loved that I understood what was going on and saw strategy and teamwork in action. Awesome bout, ladies, and congrats to the Anchor Assassins, who won their first bout ever! The celebration was wonderful to watch.
