A week in Minnesota was great! I spent the first couple days with my bff, Lindsey, which was great! And then headed up to Duluth with the girls on Friday… In the snow! Yes I just said snow in may! It snowed horribly on the way up Friday and there was still snow on the pitch for our game on Saturday! Friday night a bunch of us went to dinner at the brewhouse and then we headed over to carmody’s for drinks and live music. There were probably at least 30 to 40 old ruggers at the bar that night… it was great just seeing everyone and catching up with them all! Saturday was the big game, which the saggy ladies won of course, even though it was super cold! It warmed up and the snow melted for the guys game, which we all watched. After the games it was shower time and then off to green mill to to meet wIth some of the girls for bloody marys! Then we went off to thirsty pagan brewery for beers and then over to dublihn bar for more drinks and lots of rugby songs and some shooting the boot! we had a large crowd out, I wouldn’t be surprised if it were around 100 people, which made things super fun! I had a great time and there were so many times that we all commented on how it felt just like old times and like we had never left! And I didn’t want to leave again! It was a short visit and I was back in Hawaii in no time! It was an absolute blast and I was not ready to leave again!
But since I’ve been back I’ve been hanging out at the beach with the girls whenever I can. I also did the kona ironman swim again but this time there were dolphins all over, some even jumping only about 5 feet from us! It was so amazing! I am bar serving now, which is pretty much terrible but I only have to deal with it for another two weeks before I go back to bartending, so even though it’s two torturous weeks at least it’s just two weeks! I also found out that my vacation extension got approved so I will be home from July 10 to august 28! So that is super fun and I’ll make sure to let you all know my plans!
