This afternoon, I’m packing and getting ready for… the Head of the Charles!
I miss rowing a little bit, but I’m way more into watching it. Someone asked me if I wanted to cox here in the city and I really didn’t want to. I feel like that part of my life is over, at least in terms of actively participating. Watching the sport? So much better.
(I’ve actually been reading a book about crew… and about every other night, I have some sort of stressful dream about crew. My rowers all miss their alarms and are late for practice. Another boat runs into us. I run into another boat. We can’t find the right oars on the trailer before a race. We’re in the middle of the river when a thunderstorm hits… You know, normal dreams.)
I’m excited to be in Boston to see some old friends who live there and old teammates who are still racing. Eep! I can’t wait.
Some #flashbackfriday pictures that I’m pretty sure have never been on the blog before…
Alex was my stroke. We “went out” senior year. Except for one time when we screamed at each other in the middle of a practice and then had to be separated from each other (whoops), it was always fun!
Hands down, the most ridiculous/fun boat ever. We had a funny little code word (“pineapple” to signal when to crank up the rating). Now that I think about it, it was beyond weird… but equally fun.
Included for the sock tan… I missed a day of school (and gave up my perfect attendance record) for this regatta. Not one of my favorites for racing, but it was fun as a team.
My favorite rowers and my favorite picture.
Clearly a coxswain family… #shorties
If you’re planning on attending the races, let me know! We’ll be there Saturday for most of the afternoon!

Taken on a much sunnier day ☀️🕶️ I used to think I could live somewhere gloomy and rainy, but… after this bout of clouds, downpours, and overall gloom, I’m realizing I wouldn’t last a week. #tuckernucking
I was so excited that @MyMyrtleBeach invited me to come play pickleball with them! I am obsessed with pickleball and had a blast playing at City Pickle, right here in NYC. We brushed up on the rules, practiced some dinking, and got to play a few rounds of the game– it was the perfect way to spend the day because everyone plays at the beach! #ad
I loved watching The Parent Trap growing up and still do to this day. It is one of my go-to comfort movies… There’s so much I love about it: the cast, the soundtrack, and (of course!) the wardrobe. We all have a little Annie James and a little Hallie Parker in us! I’ve always been drawn to Annie’s style, but love the carefree nature of Hallie’s. #parenttrap @nmeyers #tuckernucking

Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
