Is it too soon to say Season's Greetings?
Couldn't you say Season's Greetings during any season, really?
We're back. So much going on! I've been working at Starbucks for 2 weeks now, I'll be finishing up the semester shortly, and Corey & the rest of the Hudson Branch guys have lots more to look forward to...including a show with S. Carey on December 2nd and a trip to New York City in the works!? Stay tuned...
Between everything going on, we managed to find time to go skydiving, so I thought I'd share some of the moments here. Yeah, I thought I was really cool...until I saw the youtube video "81 year old Margaret goes skydiving". I think she beats me for coolness factor.
Anyway, we went with Emily, Robert, Adam, and Jake. It was the day before Halloween, so we really took that as an opportunity to dress up. Obviously.
It was a blast, and yes, it was terrifying. It didn't seem very dangerous, but I didn't care if I was in danger. I was just scared to jump out of a plane, that's all.
Unfortunately, when we got there they said there was a 1-2 hour wait. Welp, we didn't wanna miss our chance so we waited.......and waited...........and waited.................and waited.
By the time it was our turn we had been there for 6 hours. Now, I don't mind waiting, but I'm not gunna lie. Going skydiving when you haven't eaten for 20 hours and you are incredibly dehydrated is probably not the best idea. But you do watcha gotta do. So tip #1 for those of you who are considering this in your future, eat breakfast. And bring food and water. Let the adventure begin...
Just giving the fans what they want...
Did I mention it was freezing up there?
Annnnnd here begins the most embarrassing pictures of me in history...for serious.
And as if those weren't embarrassing enough, let's finish strong...
And here is Corey, watching me jump out of the plane. For some reason, he looks less worried than the girl on the right.
So happy! hahaha
Corey was a professional when it came to the "landing position". He was so ready.
Just look at that face.
What a trip. As you can see in the video that Corey edited (thank you!), I couldn't stand up when we landed. I was so dizzy.
Now, I'm not sure if you'll think this is as funny as I do (and I really, really do), but Corey put the video to this very special song as was my request. High five to the first person who knows what movie this song is from. I cannot stop laughing about it! Let's just say this movie was a musically-narrated, family-friendly cartoon that was an Ingraham-family favorite when I was a kid. I mean, there wasn't much else to choose from at that very G-rated stage in our lives....enjoy! ;)
