My birthday is Super Bowl weekend. How lucky am I?
Growing up I never had a typical pink birthday party. That was never me. It always consisted of family and friends, finger foods, and football!!! Never did I think that one day I would be a Houston Texans Cheerleader, traveling the world for a military tour and performing for our troops across the world on Super Bowl weekend!
My first reaction to being selected for this trip was overwhelming excitement! I get to go to South Korea for my second military tour!!! What an experience getting to know the troops there and being able to see this part of the world. Second reaction: I can’t wait to perform for the troops and see the difference we make in the soldiers’ lives just for being there a week! We may not change their life, but we do get to be that little piece of home they have been missing for so long! Finally, how blessed I have been on this team and I get to spend yet another year overseas for my birthday! How can that thought NOT cross my mind!!
Time is ticking before we load up on that plane and travel. Over 14 hours of sitting in the same spot, ten cheerleaders, four bags a piece. The amount of jackets we have to keep ourselves warm in 1-degree weather is quite interesting! Not to mention all of our costume changes for our 45-minute show we have been practicing for the last couple weeks. All of our hard work is about to pay off! Just a day away from our 2011 Tour to South Korea and our bags are finally packed!!! We just have to get through Monday at work before our long journey. I can hardly stand it!
