Here is a slide show of yesterday's action...good times with amazing friends and family...


One of the best weekends....EVER!

Despite not having the pictures back I am gonna post this! So 2 days at Disneyland and a day with absoloutely nothing to do = THE BEST WEEKEND EVER! From Dland with my older sister's family to dland with my friends Crystal, Lindsay, & Maddie...Dland just plained rocked! It is absolutely gorgeous there right now! The autumn colors to the pumpkins carved into characters....so cute! And let's not forget the Haunted Mansion decorated in "The Nightmare Before Christmas" characters! The Tower is CREEPY! Hahaha...hopefully the Moss fam will email me those pics from last night! Hint Hint! Anyways, I am totally looking forward to Dland next weekend with a grip of my friends and family! YEA!


Part 3 of my whirlwind first season....with one more to come!

Manhattan Beach, CA (Aug 10-13) This tournament is known to be the Grand daddy tourney of them all. The home of Beach volleyball. It was sure nice to be home again for a tournament! Between the stars that came to watch, my friend Amy who came as a potential sponsor, and my friend's wedding in Dad Point...it was a non stop weekend! Did not take too many pics...kinda funny! But whatever! I made up for it in NYC

Brooklyn, NY (Aug 17-20)This had to be the best week of my life! From staying with my HS best friend Kristen in NJ to our last night in NYC...it just plain rocked! I did the whole "Planes, Trains, Automobiles" thing to see my friend Kristen, who lives 30 minutes outside the city...but it was SO COOL! And seeing her, her awesome hubbie, Danny, and their baby, Auggie, was awesome! And for the record...AUGGIE DOGGIE is my 4th fave dog :)! After that I got to see the city and experience things I have never done before! From riding the subway over the Manhattan Bridge (who knew) to going to Coney Island to eating at Pier 17 under the Brooklyn Bridge to riding in a taxi around the island on the water to going to the Budakan for drinks to riding the Cyclone at Coney Island to dancing my life away at Quo! SO MUCH FUN! And one last note...not only was Quo absolutely amazing, but I got to hang with two high school friends there....Jodie and Michelle!

Boulder, CO (Aug 24-27)This was an awesome place to travel to from NYC...the mountains, the clean air, the health freaks? Who knew Boulder was healthier than LA! It is a cute town which reminded me off a Venice, CA meets Austin, TX. The nice thing about this trip is I got to see a college friend who I rarely see anymore! ERIKA! Of course she looks great and her baby is so freaking adorable! :)!

Cincinnati, OH (Aug 31-Sept 3) - The last "regular" stop of the season. This was my first time in the "Nati"and let me tell you...I was shocked at how pretty it was driving into Cinci. It is a beautiful downtown. The event itself was held outside of the city in Mason, Ohio. It was at the Linder Family Tennis Center..a really nice facility.


My Season recap....part 2

Hermosa Beach, CA (June 9-11)This was a long, yet short weekend. Tons of work and tons of fun (Sangria baby)!

Sacramento, CA (June 15-18) - Well...to be honest...not much to say except...ARG...really despised this event..sorry to all my Norcal friends BUT this was a miserable event!

Volleyball Festival (Reno, NV) - This was my first time at this event not coaching or recruiting...so it was interesting! I brought Aaron Wactfogel, Jeff Minc, Michelle More, Suzanne Stonebarger, Brittany Hochevar, and Angela Lewis with me to do autograph signings. Heidi, one of our interns, came along with me to help work the booth..."intern", "boss", and "the talent" came from this weekend :)!

Seaside Heights, NJ (June 29-July 2)This was a cool event for me. With Cheri coming down from upstate New York and my cousin Kat (and her boyfriend John) coming in from Baltimore...it was a mini family weekend! And let me tell you....what you in see New Jersey is something you can't find anywhere...and that is EVERY STEREOTYPE KNOWN TO MAN! It is crazy!

Atlanta, GA (July 6-9)This was a cool stop for me since JO's was finishing up and I got see a bunch of my friends before they flew home. Also, the 4th of July was during my week in ATL...AND I HEART AMERICA'S BIRTHDAY! Also, I got to go to the brand new Georgia Aquarium! It was amazing! They had a Whale Shark aquarium...and they were AMAZING...

Hoover, AL (July 13-16)This event had to my 3rd favorite event of the season. Between the southern hospitality, the quality time with the athletes, and the vball action...it plain rocked! I always knew how fun BW's was...but it rocked there! Haha!

Chicago, IL (July 20-23)This was my 2nd fave event. My room overlooked the Sears Tower. It was gorgeous! From the Field museum to Grant Park to North Beach to the Cubs game at Wrigley...and let's not forget Duffy's! That was a fun night!


The 2006 recap....Philly style...part 1

So wow...the season over and can we say I feel like I have been on staff for years! Starting in early March "officially" to the season ending tournament in Lake Tahoe, CA....wow...16 tournaments done...with the tournaments increasing to 18 next season! CRAZY! So here is my rookie year on the AVP....

Ft. Lauderdale, FL (March 31-April 2) - Ft. Lauderdale was my rookie event. So imagine waking up and watching a sunrise at 6A...on the Atlantic Ocean. Talk about an amazing start for my new job! The days were hot...the nights were fun...and who doesn't love Florida?!

Northeast National Qualifier (Baltimore, MD - ) - I traveled to Balitmore for my last trip with Mizuno LB. I got to see some dear friends and my east coast family! Even though my team did not play to well, it was an awesome trip!

Lonestar National Qualifier (Dallas, TX -) - This was my first promotion event. I brought Ashley Ivy and Carrie Dodd to do signings for me at my booth. It is always good to get back to Texas!!

Crocs Party - This was a cool event at the West Hollywood House of Blues. I was lucky enough to bring my sister! We also invited Tia & Tamara Mowery...which was awesome because they are great girls!

Tempe, AZ (May 5-7) - This was 2nd event on tour. I had a great clinic that weekend too. Not too much to report here except I got to go to my first after party dressed in AVP gear...interesting...

Santa Barbara, CA (May 18-21) - My first Cali event. Not exactly local, but not exactly far! This was a really fun event. Sharkies was the place to be every night. Met alot of cool players (from Quali's to main draw) too.

Huntington Beach, CA (May 26-28) - My backyard event! It was so awesome to see a ton of my former girls and their families at this event! Plus, being 10 minutes from home is not bad either :)!
