It’s not just the games that I love about basketball season. One of my favorite parts of being a part of the team is all the team dinners we have. No joke – last week we had a meal together on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. I love it.
Team dinners are a way to spend time with the girls while not being at practice. They’re a time to relax, tell stories, get to know each other more, and most importantly…EAT! You usually have them before a big game, which totally makes it necessary to load up on carbs 😉
I didn’t have school on Monday (thank you, George Washington!) but we had a game later that day, so at precisely 10 A.M. everyone came over to Leelee’s house for brunch!
On the menu… homemade cinnamon rolls, pancakes, spinach and mushroom quiche, sausage, fruit, cheesy potatoes, chocolate milk, and smoothies! I wanted to have green smoothies buuut I got turned down. 😀
Great food, great team, great time. ♥ The best part is that we won our game! There’s only three regular season games left and then it’s time for districts (and hopefully regionals and so on!). I can’t believe how fast the season went by. I feel like I was just playing in my first varsity game and now it’s almost over! Time does fly when you’re having fun. Before I sign off I just wanted to share a quote from our team book that I think really hits the spot for us. I highly recommend this book if you’re looking for a quick inspirational read! It might just change your life… it definitely changed mine.
