This month I’m participating in #reverb10. Every day a new prompt is issued and I will write my response. The goal is to reflect on 2010 and manifest what’s next in 2011. Want to learn more? Visit www.reverb10.com.
Housekeeping note: I totally want a take-back on my #reverb10 post called “Moment.” Yes, the Southern Lights 5K was a great moment, but I was reminded today of a WAY BETTER moment! Jet Skiing! Good thing I actually already wrote about it in a previous post. Read all about my jet ski adventure here.
Prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.
As amazing as Shauna is, this question had me stumped. 2010 was so hyper-focused on my weight loss that I didn't really do any partying or pull any shenanigans. I wasn't anti-social, but my priorities this year revolved around trying to get to bed somewhat early so I could wake up for workouts- this included weekends! Still though, I've had some good fun, just no balls-to-the-wall parties.
I guess the craziest social gathering from this year was during the cruise hubs and I went on. After wrapping up a rowdy scavenger hunt type game (totally forgot the name, but you played it in teams and had to scramble to bring up people's shoelaces, a tampon, whatever…), the cruise director sent us up to the the cruise ship pool deck where they had a DJ. We were instructed to do the cupid shuffle (see video if you don't know what the cupid shuffle is) when it came on the speakers. It was kind of funny- at least 100 of us ran up there and then just busted in on this party. I “cupid shuffled” on a pool deck somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean wearing a bronze “medal” (we got 3rd in the game prior) with complete strangers while my husband tried to track someone down to order me another dirty martini.
