What I'm Loving & A Different Kind of March Madness

I'm loving...

That I'm finally back in the land of the living. I got sick Sunday night and have been locked up in my apartment all week. I decided to try and actually get back to work today. So far I haven't died (so that's a good sign)... :)

I'm loving...

That I have sweet friends who stopped by my apartment to bring me soup, Ginger Ale, and other food while I was sick.

I'm loving...

That I got to see some good friends last weekend on my quick trip to Austin (for those I didn't get to see, I'm sorry, I was only in town 24 hours. I'll be back hopefully soon!)

Me and "Pop", my honorary grandpa. He and his wife just moved back to the Austin area, I hadn't seen him or Meem in like six years. Meem didn't feel like having her picture taken. She promised next time!
The birthday girl Miss E!
Hugs and kisses for Aunt Rachel!
Me and my best friend of 25 years. Miss E's birthday party was actually held on the playground at our old elementary school. Let's not talk about how long it's been since we attended it!
I'm loving...

That I have social media to entertain me when I'm stuck in traffic NOT MOVING. Seriously, it took almost five hours to get home from my trip last weekend. It normally takes about three. I so hate I-35.

I gave a sneak peek last week at my "March Madness" brackets. I have another friend posting her own bracket later this week (at least that is what she's telling me). Yes, this is silly, but what the heck, right? If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you know that I love sports. BUT I realize not all of my readers are sports fans, so I decided to spice up March Madness a little. For the record, yes I do have a "real" March Madness bracket. This is honestly the only time of year I really get into college basketball. I have a VERY scientific method for predicting my hoops brackets.....eenie, meenie, miney, mo. :) I love upsets, so I don't get too involved in picking my bracket.

Anyways, for those who missed it on Friday (and are too lazy to click back one post), here is my unique March Madness bracket.

Click for bigger picture
I realized that not everyone would be familiar with all the names, so I created a chart with pictures (just to give you an idea). If you want to know who the guy is, go to Google (I'm too lazy to post it all here). Here is how the first round matches up. Yes, I already have my picks selected, BUT, I'm curious who you would pick. Feel free to comment, tweet, or email me your selection. I can let you know how my picks matched up against y'all's. I'll post the first round results on Sunday or Monday.

No judging that Steven R. McQueen is only 24. (Just call me Mrs. Robinson). And yes, he is Steve McQueen's grandson.
Totally off topic, but I realized that Mark-Paul Gosselaar turns 40 next year. I feel so old!

I know, you are shocked so many Rangers are on this one!
Yes, I know, I know. With the exception of like three guys, these are all country singers. Deal with it. :)

Hope you are all having a great week!!

  1. I started working on it last night and I have nothing to post for Friday so I promise I will do it. I am stuck at 17 guys and unless I go with a bunch of Dallas Stars I don't know if I can get an entire section of Athletes but we will see. I think maybe I AM too picky! HAHA!
