Showing Ryan my Hometown!

Today Ryan practiced in the morning, and then this afternoon I took him on a tour of where I grew up! I showed him the houses that I used to live in, my Dad's old practice, Norris Dam, all my schools, and enjoyed showing off a little at Anderson County High School! We accidentally walked into the gym on volleyball practiced so he got a little taste of that, and then I dragged him out to the lobby to show off team trophies and my All-State pictures! I know it sounds shallow and silly, but my husband is a professional athlete and met me after college so sometimes it's fun to give him glimpses into my past and to remind him I was an accomplished athlete and multi-sport NCAA athlete too! He holds most of the accolades in the family... But not all! :) Anyhow... We had fun exploring together and now we are off to Bonefish Grill with my parents for amazing Bang Bang Shrimp (only $5 on Wednesdays!)

Ryan tees off tomorrow at 2:20pm local time and we are SUPER PUMPED for the event this week! Come out and see if you are in the area!

This week we are in Knoxville, TN at the Nationwide Event, the News Sentinel Open, at Fox Den Country Club! We are super excited to be here this week to play in the tourney, plus I get to give Ryan a tour of where I grew up, all in one!

A BIG thank you to Scott Stallings' family for hosting us and giving lots of encouragement! My parents even made the drive down from Iowa to see Ryan play... Should be a fun week!! Anyone want to come and join us?! :)

Song of the South

Ryan had a solid final round on Sunday in Daphne, Alabama and finished tied for 8th! To follow the tournaments, view all tee times and find scores on your own, just go to:

Also, some fellow "Blaum's" were able to come out and support Ryan on Sunday! It is always great to spend time with extended family, especially when they know so much about geneology and family history! Thank you again to Dr. & Dr. Bruce Blaum for a wonderful time and good seafood!

Happy Saturday!

Ryan shot 65 today, which earned him a very happy wife, as great scores get you later tee times (as in 9:09am)! ;) We are looking forward to tomorrow!

Schedule Update

Ryan posted 71 today and will tee off tomorrow at 8:03 am!

He has also updated the schedule portion of our blog to reflect the fact that we are back in the US! Now when you click on that to see where we are, it will probably be correct! Love that! :)

On the Road Again...

We are in Daphne, Alabama this week for the TimberCreek Golf Classic! Ryan played in the Pro-Am earlier today, so I got some super fun alone time to hang out at Starbucks, the hubs treated me to a massage at a local spa AND I painted my toenails!! :)

Tournament play starts tomorrow at 7 am local time... Ryan tees off at 12:10 pm!
