Just wanted to show love to some BEAUTIFUL local celebs I met over the weekend - the kids at Keystone Extreme Allstars (cheer team) and United Sports Academy (athletic acrobatic team). They were with me at our block party at the Viewmont Mall and they absolutely BLEW ME AWAY with their performances!
And the kids were so kind to each other - the Keystone Extreme team watched while United Sports Academy was doing their demonstration and vice versa. VERY nice to see such good sportsmanship in young people! Check out their awesome pics! And if you can, join me for United Sports Academy's 5K Run/Walk for the Kids! Here's the info:

Starve a cold, skydive for a fever….right? I was sick all last week so I ALMOST said no when my friend Justin from The Weekender asked if he could interview me. But I didn’t wanna cancel, so we set up a meeting for Friday. Little did I know , he wanted to interview me in an “unconventional” setting so I didn’t have time to really think about my answers.….hmmm…kay…
Cut to an hour later and we were jumping out of a plane from two miles above the earth. Ha! My THIRD skydive and I’m officially hooked! Our interview will be in the next issue of The Weekender, but I just wanted to take a sec and THANK EVERYBODY at Above The Poconos Skydivers in Drums!! You guys are amazing. Don, Darlene, Barbra, Christoph Streicher (he was my awesome tandem), Brian, Tiddy, Dave, the whole crew = YOU ROCK!!
If you’re thinking of going skydiving, hit them up!
