GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED
This past weekend I attended a soccer event, sponsored by Libby’s Fruits, featuring Brandi Chastain. It was the first time I ever attended such an event, wearing my blogger hat, and I have to say it was AWESOME! I got to meet a soccer legend and watch her firsthand inspire a group of young athletes from Buffalo.
Brandi started the day practicing with the kids. Let me just say that the day was cold, windy and the ground was muddy from rain the night before. However, that did not seem to bother her at all because she was right in the middle teaching the kids all that she could in the time allotted. The kids were soaking up all that she had to offer. It was great to see the smiles on their little faces.
Oh and on my face because I was having a great time too.
After practice, Brandi spoke with everyone talking about her 5 Tips for Healthy Living and also giving us wonderful words of encouragement and motivation.
My two favorite quotes she shared were “You are the only one who influences you” and “The most important thing parents can do is to be a good role model for their kids”.
I thought it was so important the way she spoke to parents and kids alike. Both of these quotes really stuck out with me because I believe it is the backbone to how I try to live my life and also to the information I share right here on Skinny Mom’s Kitchen.
Then she presented the Buffalo Soccer Club with a $5,000 donation. Everybody was happy and it was incredibly heartwarming to witness.
After that I got the privileged to meet Brandi. I will admit I was a little star struck. But she was super cool even when I went to give her a big old Buffalo hug Sorry but we are very huggy in Buffalo – it is one of the ways we stay warm.
Did I mention that is was super windy?
Another super cool part of this event was getting to meet with other Buffalo mom bloggers. I typically do all my blogging alone so it was great to talk with other like minded moms. Check them out because they are a great bunch of mamas!
