Happy New Year's!

Well, we have survived 2 1/2 days of 2011. Quite an accomplishment. Go us! I hope everyone is still sticking to their resolutions. I'm pretty excited about mine. I finished knitting Ben's scarf. He hasn't seen the finished product yet. I'm sure it will look good on him. It definitely looks great on me. The yarn is a nice soft alpaca yarn and is a beautiful blue which is Ben's favorite color.

I am still a newbie knitter, so this was my first attempt at a pattern. I am really happy with how it turned out. Its a very simple stripe, but its perfect for a manly man like Ben.

The team is also off to a good start for the New Year. They had their first game back yesterday and won 4-0 against Brown University. I'm proud of our sophomore goalie for getting her first collegiate shutout. Our freshman goalie just returned from USA Hockey camp which is also a huge accomplishment. This is a huge plus for our team. At the beginning of the year, I think many people questioned how good our team would be, even with two Olympians, due to the lack of experience in goaltending. I think our goalies have really stepped up and have proven themselves which is evident by our 15-2-3 record, which includes 4 shutouts.

Finally, Ben and I are just two short days from going to Vegas. I have never been and am really excited to go. I hope it is as great as everyone says it is. Trust me, there will be lots of pictures and updating, so stay tuned.

Oh, and finally finally, I will be posting an update/race report from this past weekend's 10K on my triathlon blog (http://eliteodyssey.blogspot.com/) before we leave for our trip, so be sure to check in.
