You know what happens when you are sick of doing the same old things and your family is driving you absolutely bonkers? You sign up for Big O Bocce determined to learn a new game and find a new hobby, while escaping the 4 walls of crazyville called home.
Martinis and Minivans, along with her husband, put together the Big O Bocce League three years ago. I had not heard about it until a post popped up in a Facebook Group I am in, asking if any Omaha Bloggers wanted to form a Big O Bocce Team and help spread the word about the league. (Little did they know this was going to be their biggest registration year ever and they needed no help with word spreading at all!) Right away I knew I wanted to be on the team because I had two screaming toddlers demanding who knows what at that very moment and an hour in a grassy field with a bunch of ladies, playing with balls, sounded awesome.
Myself, Oh My Omaha, and her sister have sported our Big O Bocce Tees and proudly introduced ourselves as Joanie Loves Bocce to the fist, second, third, and now fourth team that has beaten us. But ya know what? We are getting our butt kicked and having an awesome time!
