that's amore monday

i'm baaaaaaaack....and with a 'that's amore monday'....could it get any better?  well today for that's amore monday i knew what you thought i would say.  you thought i would say a week at the beach.  which is true, i do love my week at the beach with my wonderful hubby but i wanted to do it justice with it's very own post, or posts.  we'll see what happens.  so instead of beach talk, which will come in the near i honor...dun-nuh-nuh-nuh {that's a trumpet noise}.....MARCH MADNESS.  i know it started a week ago so i'm a little slow but hey, better late than never.

i love this tournament.  there are tons of reasons why & i'd just love to share some of them with you.

1. i like to fill out brackets.  i love to guess & speculate.
2. i like to highlight my bracket. i don't like when i have to cross teams off my bracket but i do get a weird amount of joy from highlighting my wins. 

the first day of the tournament i was 13 for 16.  i thought, "wow...i'm a pro.  those sportscasters should be calling me for my picks!" and then day 2 & 3 happened.  my whole bracket is basically covered in red ink.  but i don't care, you want to know why?  because...
3.  i love upsets.  i love to see the underdog come out on top.  i like to see them have confidence in themselves even when no one else does. 
4. i like to cheer for my teams that i never cared about until this week.  it's funny how a game between two opponents suddenly has meaning after you've "picked" them on paper.  and all the games have been so close i've had to do a lot of cheering.  i know that they can hear me.
5.  but for some games that have not been too close you can take a look at my wildcats.  they are just blowing teams out of the water.  i can't wait for the games to come.  here comes national championship #8 friends!

6.  i hate to be mean but yes, kansas lost and that is one final reason i love this tournament.  sorry #1 overall seed, you're out {read in heidi klum voice}.  and here we come!

you love UK?  you need to watch THIS!


  1. Word to that Jen. Just LOVE March Madness. PS. I have my team vs. your team in the final championship game, look out. It might be a stretch, but I literally could not bring myself to vote against MSU in my bracket, it felt wrong!

  2. I'm so glad you are back! I also Love Love Love UK! Those boys make me so happy and they are fun! I kinda wish I was real life friends with them! :)

  3. I love March Madness for every reason that you do. I bet you don't say that you love to highlight stuff at work...just the brackets.

    And I love the Heidi reference. hilarious...


i am thrilled to see your comments. please give me some more to be thrilled about...
