It's Not About Whether You Win Or Lose.

Back in my high school days, I was actually a golf superstar.

I know.

You never would have known with as much as I talk about golf on this blog!

This past weekend I actually had the blessing of playing in a golf tournament with my dad. I have to admit, I was a *little* nervous about it because the last time I really played golf was around 2008. Yeah. It's amazing my dad had faith in my golf skills!

Cody and I went out one night over the 4th of July weekend to see if I still even knew how to hold a club. Thankfully, I did.

More importantly, I still remembered my motto to success: It's not about whether you win or lose, just as long as you look the cutest!

Cuteness in hand, I knew my dad and I would be unstoppable.


{yes, we purposely coordinated. I love it!}

I was the most nervous about my first tee off. We were playing with 2 of our friends and I was just certain I was going to wiff. Luckily, I had a really pretty shot. As we started searching for it though, it was no where to be found.

Apparently it wasn't ready to play.


For real yall. The ball disappeared when you looked at it from the front!

We played decent on Saturday. {An 83 for you golfers out there.} Not the best, but we had about 5 putts that stopped an inch short or looped out.

Thankfully, we really stepped up on game on Sunday and shot a 77.



I was happy with our score, but didn't really think we would get anything out of it. I was satisfied with a fun weekend with my dad!

Luckily for us, the other teams in our flight seemed to have an off day. We were the only team to shot in the 70's and claimed first place outright!

Our prize:

Yep. $210 apiece! I'm still figuring out what I want to get with my money. {a new fall purse is currently at the top of the list! though a practical side says to use it for something on the house. wha wha whaaaa.} As my friend Leslie said: Unreal. You have achieved greatness. You were paid for looking stylish. Bravo! :)

All in all it was such a great weekend and I'm so glad I got to play in the tournament with my dad!
