What I'm Loving, Blog Challenge & a March Madness Champion!

I'm loving...

The response I got from my post yesterday. Thank you to everyone who commented, sent me an email, text or tweet about it. It was difficult to write, but I'm glad I did. It did help to put it out there into words (both letters). I've been told I need to show my serious side more often. Maybe I will. Stay tuned.

I'm loving...
Baseball. Even though I'm so exhausted I can't see straight, I've enjoyed being at the Ballpark the past five days. I can't say I'm all that upset that I'm not going to the game today. Well, one, it's a day game and I couldn't miss work. It's also raining and about 38 degrees outside (winter wanted one last fling). 
Our weather in about a span of 9 hours.
Girls Night Out at the Ballpark!
Thanks to my friend Dallas for his season ticket seats last night! Great view!
Baseball beauties...
My great Twitter friend Emily!
We met up with our Twitter buddy Willie!
I'm loving...

That I can go straight home after work today. Not counting the few precious hours I've been asleep, the last time I spent quality time at my apartment was last Wednesday after work. I went out with a friend last Thursday night and since then I've either been at the Ballpark or at a movie. BTW, I'm taking a "me weekend" this weekend and doing nothing but cleaning my apartment and catching up on three weeks worth of DVR shows (oh, and baseball on TV). Don't bother texting or calling me, I won't answer. :) Unless it's my mother calling, I never ignore a call from my mother. :)

That sweet Miss E in Canada got her care package from Auntie Rachel. This was one of the onesies that I got her! She is the cutest Rangers fan in all of Canada!! :)

I'm loving...

That my sweet boys (C and E) had fun at the beach last weekend. They are Aunt Rachel's little beach bums!

March Madness CHAMPION!!!

I must say that any 64 of the guys on this list originally were worthy of being the champion, but as in any competition, there can be only one winner. And now, the moment you've been waiting for.....the winner is....
Luke Bryan!!!
I had a few people pick that he would be the winner (but only after it was narrowed down to the final two. No one picked him at the beginning). Honestly, when I first started I didn't think he would be, but hey, how can you not like a guy that not only looks good in a baseball cap, but also hangs out with Chipper Jones, the Duck Dynasty guys AND has made a Dr Pepper commercial. He also just won the ACM Entertainer of the Year award on Sunday. :)


Happy halfway through the week!! Have a great one!!


  1. Girl, I would not have been able to make it as long as you have without a night at home to do nothing! Enjoy!! And ps-- his teeth in the pic with his dog look creepy... lol

  2. Looks like a fun girls night and oh my you made my day with all of the Luke pics/ video. :) Love Luke Bryan!!!!!!

  3. LB is hot! Good choice!! Oh and Boston should be on that list. Let's plan a trip to Holland for next April. I want to go during tulip season. I'm totally serious!!

  4. Weird how we have the same pictures some of the same locations and I am really glad you had fun with the brackets!
