. . . for Lauren and Lauren: There's only love in tennis

April 8, 2012

There's only love in tennis


dress: Steve & Barry's $4 (before they went out of business a few years ago)  boots: dsw

 Last weekend Chris and I played tennis for the first time since last summer.
Chris was pretty much a tennis star in high school.

Take a look at his picture that is proudly on display at our high school's hall of fame.  

While he can be proud of his tennis skills, he failed miserably when it came to his hair and clothing choices.
 

I enjoyed learning something new last summer and felt like I started to get decent last year.  

It was nice to be able to play together last weekend, although when we moved on from just volleying back and forth and tried to play a game I didn't do so hot. 

I have to say that saying "love, 30" or "love, 40" is much better sounding then saying your score of zero over and over.  Whoever made that up was definitely keeping in mind the self esteem of those not so good at tennis.  

Pin It!

Too funny! That picture is just hysterical! My husband was a huge tennis star back in the day and when he took me during college, I hit a car with the tennis ball as it flew out of the court and nearly caused a wreck. At least I had good hand-eye coordination... Right?? :) Sounds like you had a great weekend! Keep in touch!
