Celebrities are normal people. Well, some of them are but others, well, let’s not go there. One athlete who is very approachable and genuine is Brandi Chastain. As I noted last week, I would be meeting and talking to her this past weekend.
My son and I went to North Providence to see Brandi Chastain (should I just call her Brandi from here forward?) to watch her take part in a Soccer clinic and to present a check for $5,000 to the North Providence Soccer Club.
At one point the group of us bloggers got to talk to her personally and she told us about how she and a group of women practice yoga each week while the kids are at their soccer practice. Smart right?! She has encouraged these women to find a way to fit in fitness and socialize at the same time. Brilliant!
Brandi (my new BFF) also talked about the family sitting down to the dinner table at night and sharing stories about their day. She also told us about how one of her children wants the same lunch every day.
While we were there, my son fit in some exercise…..
While we were there we snacked on fruit cups and peeked at what was in the gift bag that every family took home. My son is crazy about the super big spoon.
Would you like a gift bag for yourself? The red draw string gift bag contains: a sports water bottle, A great large ladle, a notepad and a coupon wallet containing a coupon for free Libby’s fruit cup.
