My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics

MMM (Date 1)


As many of you know, especially my twitter followers, I tweeted about my college mentor setting me up on four blind dates as I watch her place in the downtown St. Louis area for the next week and 3 days. I wasn’t happy about the whole idea of blind dating, especially since I’m in a town where I don’t know anyone but my mentor (I know one person but he’s irrelevant at this point). But because she forced me to sign a contract that not only included clauses like “no visitors during after-hours unless it is an emergency” and “no pets”, but also clauses such as “I agree to going on 4 blind dates with each man my mentor has set up (all expenses paid, clothes and accessories included)” and “emergencies are defined as family emergency, you are injured or one of your dates would like to spend the night over” (My mentor is funny like that. She’s the cool mom that understands that I needed time and space to write but also that I have needs too).

I’m rambling and all of you are wondering how my date went. How did it go? I couldn’t have imagined it any better! He picked me up a few mintues early, brought flowers, embraced and kissed me on the cheek and he complimented me on my perfume amongst other things (I hate perfume but I bought a bottle of Gucci Guilty the other night because the subtlety of the scent was sweet and sexy and it screamed BUY ME).

Whenever I meet a person, I associate that person with a song. Upon first seeing my date, the song that came to mind was Laura Izibor’s song MMM. He’s easy on the eyes but his demeanor and aura are magnetic and mysterious. As we ate, talked and sipped on wine (I don’t normally drink on first dates. Oh well) he gently kissed my hands and arms the duration of dinner and occasionally brushed his hands over my lower back, quadriceps and knees. Goose bumps is all I remember. I know we talked, but I can’t seem to remember anything but when he gently touched me. Selective memory I guess. lol

I normally hate when people read over my shoulder, but I’m posting this as I sit between his legs propped up against him as he embraces me with my back to him. I can’t even really think about my next few THOUGHTS let alone sentences because his nose nuzzling up against the nape of my neck and gentle kisses and flickers of his tongue across my back and shoulders, while his fingers run through my hair and across my arms and legs are ABSOLUTELY devilishly distracting but I’m trying to share the joy in being genuinely and gently embraced (He says “hello readers!”).

The irony of having just blogged about the Art of Kissing and the language one speaks when placing kisses on specific body parts is funny to me. I believe I’ve met my match, in terms of Kissing 101! He’s now intrigued with what I’ve written in that post, so I’ll let him read that post now. That would mean, it’s my turn to devilishly distract him as he reads. Let’s see how successful he is in doing so. (I don’t normally kiss on the first date, but that list is long gone now. I made a new one, remember that blog post?) ;P

Since Date 2 isn’t scheduled ’til next Tuesday, it looks like our second date is scheduled for tomorrow evening! YAAAAAY!

Until next time, signing off. XoXoX

      Thanks Lani! The post was supposed to be about what we did on the date and how bored I was but as you read… I was a little distracted and it was everything BUT boring.

      I had to re-read the post this morning because I couldn’t remember what I wrote. He seems to enjoy distracting me as I struggle to focus on writing. It’s actually quite funny now that I re-read this post. Blogging while being kissed is tougher than your experience with flying. More pleasurable, but still tougher nonetheless. 🙂

    Uh huh….about these clauses……!!! Hahahahaha. *note to self: Namu’i ange Gucci Guilty*. THIS is epic in the making and catastrophic on the senses…all the goodies that Involve “throwing caution to the wind”

Several of these young men are now realizing that #trackandfield should’ve been a major part of their lives earlier on in their #athletic careers at HF. Tomorrow they lay it all on the track at the @ihsa_il Boys State Final Meet. Last week, our HF Girls Team were Runners Up. This week I’m praying our boys pull out a #team win. 💪🏾 #GoVikings #hfboystrackandfield #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife #coach #athlete

In March 2017, @pttheshaq introduced @clark_the_shark10 to #shotput and #discus. Brett Young, father of #KDYoung of @gamecockthrows invited her out to a session we had scheduled May 2017 to prepare her for 2017 @usatf Jr. Nationals out in Sacramento. The rest is history.... Thank you to the Mount Pulaski Board Members 🏛for recognizing Cassidy Clark on her recent athletic achievements 🥇🥈at the 2018 #IESA #TrackAndField #StateChampionship Meet. 🔥💣 I absolutely am blessed and honored to be her #coach. These next few years are going to be a blast!

It’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that our girls were the 3A State Runners Up last year and again this year. Last year we fell short by 4 pts and this year we fell short by 6 pts. Thank you @ihsa_il for running a wonderful meet and thank you @eiu for being a wonderfully organized host! This summer is about getting faster, stronger and better. I’m grateful for this @hfvikinggirlstf staff, these hard working girls and especially our Athletic Director Dan Vosnos. Next year we’ll be back with a vengeance. 🔥💪🏾#redsmoke #govikings #trackandfield #state #illinois #Class3A #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife

This brought a #smile to my #heart. ☺️ I truly miss her! @gamecockthrows #GoGamecocks #KDYoung #8TimeStateChamp #coach #athlete #shotput #discus #champion
💿⚫️🚨STATE CHAMPION ALERT🚨⚫️💿 Congratulations to Cassidy Clark @clark_the_shark10 of Mt. Pulaski Middle School on winning 🥇the #ShotPut for IESA 8th Grade Girls with a PR of 33’7.5” and 🥈placing 2nd in #discus with a throw of 100’3”. Everyone knows the throw events are about inches. Going into the finals for shot put she sat in 2nd place. No one in the finals had improved their distance. 😔Her PR coming into the state meet was 32’11” 👍🏾of which she threw the previous weekend at the sectional meet. In order for her to take 1st place, she needed to throw beyond 33’5”... 6” more from her PR. 🤔 Seeing her launch the shot out there was beautiful. The eruption of her entire family and friends speaks for itself. We knew she had punched a powerful one out there, we just didn’t know how far... 🗣Turn the volume up to hear it all play out!🗣 Thank you to the Clark Family and Friends for such an awesome support base for Cassidy. It’s absolutely amazing and humbling to be her coach. Thank you Coach Johnson of @aretethrowsnation and Coach Angel @coachangeldls for your ongoing support and efforts. #ATNMidwest truly appreciates everything you do for the greater good of this sport and the #throw events! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #trackandfield #tracklife #tracknation #fieldnation #thrownation
The Track Season in Review: 2 weeks left with my @hfvikingsthrows boys. This season has been one to remember! Being a part of both the 2018 HF Boys and HF Girls Track & Field programs has been an honor and learning experience. Both Head Coaches have put in a lot of work preparing their teams for a successful season. State is this week for the girls and next week for the boys. I’m excited to get back to the drawing board for the off season once the season has come to an official end. If they thought weights during the season was tough, it’s about to get a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN! 😏 #GoVikings #HFTrackandField #RedSmoke #HFFamily #HFVikingsThrows #HFThrows #TrackAndField #FieldNation #TrackNation #TrackLife #Blessed
To my beloved athletes: The greatest part about being a #coach is getting to know my athletes and their families. I consider each and every athlete I work with my child. My compassion for each athlete working to better themselves comes from a motherly perspective. Thank you to every athlete I’ve worked with over the near decade I’ve been coaching and personal training! I truly appreciate your time, effort, work ethic and especially your love in return. I’m humbled by the trust and confidence each of you give me. Lord knows I’m grateful for the gift with which He’s blessed me and in return I’m able to share with all you talented throwers. Mālo aupito! Ofa lahi atu, Coach #coach #mother #athletes #thankful #happymothersday #icantfiteveryoneinthispost 🤦🏽‍♀️lol
