its over for me!

march madness that is!!
I am a huge basket ball freak, and play the tournament brackets every year!!
I did awesome in the first round.. beating my husband by 2 points.(he he he)
and did pretty well,in the second round too, at least because others picked some of the losting teams to go all the way.
My confidence was building.. I looked forward with my head held high.. until ..... last night!!

What a major upset with LSU pulling it off against DUKE.
Bad for me, i took Duke to the championship. good for my husband who predicted them to lose .

What is up with UCLA beating Gonzaga? another outcome, I was not predicting.
I almost did not wish Gonzago to beat IU, only because I felt loyal to a big ten school(except OSU) !!... and because Coach Davis was forced to resign at the end of the season. I was hoping he would be able to work real hard and go out with a bang.. and then make all his admin. folk, question themselves.
When Andrew told me that Coach had all ready accepted a head position at Deleware, I felt unsorry for him..
So then I rooted for the trailer park kid with Gonzaga.
I did feel so bad for them when they lost and he laid on the court crying.
I always feel so bad for the kids that lose. Guess it was because I was such an athlete and know how hard these kids work.
After dating athletes in college, you realize how sweet it is for these "big boys" to love their momma's.

Well, even though my teams are gone.. and my brackets shot.. there is nothing like hanging in a sports bar , in INdiana.. watching ball. =) it will be a good weekend!

Andrew insists that Brigham will be a football star. Almost wanted to name him Xavier Trane just so that his nickname would be "X-train".
I am pushing towards basketball...or golf..

so now that we are four days in to spring.. of course it would snow again. I was hoping to get some major yard work done this weekend. but I am sure it wont happen.

guess that just means I will have to scrap. I am getting so inspired by many of the talented peas.
I actually "feel" the mojo...(rachel, I 've got it too)!!

I bought a bunch of new stuff.. speaking of.. do any of you scrappers have more of a "buying scrapping supplies addiction" rather than an actual scrapbooking addiction.
I feel like my stash is busting at the seams, yet I am hardly going through any of it..
I hope to get five pages done this weekend, and to use some of my older stuff..
fingers crossed.

so i will leave you with some pics I just got back of Brigham. these are his 18 month old pic.
I scanned them in, and i am gonna see if Walgreens.com will upload them... shhh. don't tell.
Have an awesome weekend!!

I can't believe how big he is getting!!
such a little boy.
where did my baby go??
uh oh,you all know what that means????

Those are the cutest pictures!! I love the horse sweater too. He is so adorable!!

Sorry about your teams. I'm not much into basketball, but Chris is OVERLY OBSESSED so I have to put up with it ;) He doesn't like when I watch it with him b/c I have WAY TOO MANY questions! I'd rather watch football.

I'M NOT A BIG SPORTS FAN - I DO WATCH GOLF WITH SCOTT, AND SOMETIMES BASKETBALL, BUT THAT'S ABOUT IT.
WOO-HOO!!! FOR GETTING YOUR MOJO BACK, ISN'T IT WONDERFUL WHEN IT RETURNS?!
I AM DEFINITELY W/YOU ON THE SUPPLIES BUSTING AT THE SEAMS... IT'S HARD TO STOP BUYING THE STUFF!!!! =)

RACHEL =) said...

Great pics...he is adorable. and the fish pic is too cute.

I just got a RAK from my mother in law...she works at a scrapping store. She is too sweet and she gives me her discount sometimes so that even makes it harder to stop buying. I have vowed to not get more paper until I am down to one stack...I am not saying how big that stack is going to be. My bracket is shot too smitherines tooo. I had way to much confidence in the big ten. This year I really thought they would do it for me. neither my hubbies or mine is doing well.
Who knows maybe everyone's will be a mess.

I feel your pain about the whole March Madness, I'm finally coming to grips with the UofA loss. I have to admit that I'm extremely happy about Duke, those dudes always get there way. Really upset that Gozanga lost also, their such a good team.

Love the pics of your boy, what a cutie!!!!!

Jill said...

oh my, Brigham looks so much older in these pics!
very cute.

Lisa Dickinson said...

Well you and I are on the same wavelength with the tourney...Duke is always my team and this year I had Gonzaga, too. Oh well!

Those pics of Brigham are too dang precious. I love his horsey sweater! :) And am I the only one who took that last line of the entry to mean you're trying to get preggers ?!?! (wink wink)
