The Men's short program starts tonight and I know who I will be rooting for. Evan Lysacek is one of my all time favorite male skaters and also a very nice guy. Here he is pictured with my daughter Katie (in the white coat) and her skating buddy. We were attending the Campbell's Open Figure Skating Classic in St. Paul, MN. I think the year was 06 so about 4 years ago. Evan was just climbing the ranks at this time and still relatively unknown. There were several other skaters the girls got to meet as well. My daughter became a very strong skater over the years. She was doing axels and some double jumps. But you just can't imagine the speed and strength of these top level skaters until you see them perform in person. We got to see Michelle Kwan and Sasha Cohen perform that day as well but they weren't doing autographs. But that's ok, the girls were more than happy to talk to cute Evan.
On another note. Next Tuesday my Mom and I get to leave this. ( My patio)
And go here! We're flying out to Phoenix ( this pic was taken outside of Phoenix) to see my son and his wife, my brother and some very special blogger friends. I will keep you all updated! Can't wait, I need some warmth and sunshine! Have a great Wednesday Everyone! Cindy
I am joining Susan @ Outdoor Wednesday. Please visit her for some neat outdoor links.
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
