Just a quick post to show off my delicious treat of the afternoon: a banana flavored cupcake. Yum. Chelsea loved the bite that she tried. My dad would have definitely loved it, as banana is one of his top ice cream flavor choices. Ben’s dog, Siena, who loves bananas would have even loved this. Basically, this cupcake was a mini slice (cup) of banana heaven.


And the best part? I still have a mint chocolate flavored cupcake to eat tomorrow! How lucky am I?

Chelsea and I helped one of the girls on our team begin to contact US college coaches about playing water polo abroad. It brought me back to when I was 17 drafting up my player profile and being so nervous on my recruit trips. I am still so thankful that my dad (and entire family) encouraged me to pursue college athletics. He purchased a program, called Recruit Me, that really helped me out with how to go through the process, as I had no high school alumni or anyone to help me. And it definitely worked! I had the best four years imaginable with UCDWWP and now I’m playing with MC in Australia. 🙂 I am one lucky girl, and it was so much fun to help pass on my knowledge to someone else. I hope it works!

Alicia’s Aussie Word of the Day: ta. Meaning thank you. Usage: when I clear someone’s plate at Dining Haul, they respond with, “ta“.
