Well, I'm sure ya'll know by now but, UK lost to UCONN last night. So, so sad. It may sound rediculous, but in Kentucky UK basketball is a really big deal. We don't have any professional teams, so the whole state rallies behind our college teams. Add to that the fact that UK is usually a really good team and all the tradition and history behind UK basketball, and well, its just a big deal. This years team was no exception. We had some rough spots through the season, and no body expected us to do so well. The fact that we even made it to the Final Four was a huge accomplishment and I couldn't be more proud of my Wildcats and the fact that I can say I am a University of Kentucky Alum. And I am so happy that they still had a huge crowd to welcome them home at the airport today, even after a loss. But, I'm still...very heart broken.
But, we had a great time enjoying the game day festivities. We wore our blue...obvi...
and...We made our pimp cups to enjoy the game. Because clearly you can't have as good of a time without pimp cups.
The idea for the cups and directions for how to make them came from the lovely PinkLouLou. If you don't already read her blog, start. Ours didn't turn out quite as lovely, but we still loved them. And we learned what we would do different when we make them again. We went down to the Two Keys area to watch the game. That was were the madness would have been centered if we had won, so we wanted to be part of the excitement. Not so much excitement after we lost tho. And I must say, walking out of the bar into streets lined with police in full riot gear was not only rediculous, but also kind of a sad slap in the face of the enjoyment we were not going to get to experience.
Other good times this weekend.....
Know the ex I have mentioned a few times before?? Well, that ex has continued to be on a cell phone plan with my family for almost a year now, since we broke up. Problem with that is (well, obviously there are a lot of problems with that but...) he doesn't think it is really a priority to pay that phone bill. If you had any other utility or service and paid it a total of four times in over a year would you still expect to have that utility or service? NO. Well, he does. I offered him (over a month ago) to buy my contacts in exchange for two months of the bill. (His mom works at my eye doctor) Bringing his grand total of money owed to just a little over $300. This seemed like a pretty good offer to me. Well, I still have no contacts, and no phone bill money. So my happy little ass shut his service off yesterday. This came as a huge surprise to him. Go figure??!! He just happened to be with friends from work (both of our work, as you remember from here), so needless to say he and his new girlfriend talked quite a bit of ish about me last night to a whole bunch of mutual friends/coworkers. Awesome, right? As if I didn't enjoy going to my job, for this very reason, enough as it is. So I have that to look forward to this week. Happy Monday to me! He is clearly very upset with me. He even defriended me on Facebook. ooohhhh burn! That cuts deep. Coincidently enough tho, his new little girlfriend didn't. Wonder why? Oh, that would be because you can't see anything on my profile if we are not friends and I'm sure they didn't want to lose their connection so they could still stalk my every move and make underhanded comments on her profile and make sure I still can see them. Are we 13? Cuz I'm damn near 30 and this is just rediculous to me. Poor girl. She has no idea what she is getting herself in to. And the day will come when she feels like a pretty huge idiot for standing up for him. She really has a prize with that one....a part time employed, un-educated 26 year old guy with no money, no future plans, no degree and no plans of going to college, no car, no credit, and lives with his parents, in their garage. Oh, and he's cheated on every girlfriend he's ever had. Duh, (she's obviously) Winning!! Insert Kellie Pickler "Best Days of Your Life" --"I've been told that a cheater is always a cheater, so I've got my pride and she's got you."
Sorry, I'm usually not an "air-my-dirty-laundry-in public" kinda girl, but I just had to vent a little there. I've really done a good job of taking the high road in this stiuation but when you start trying to purposefully make my work environment miserable, I draw the line.
Back to the fun stuff....
Academy of Country Music awards are on...and everybody looks so pretty! I love Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band, and Sara Evans and Lady Antebellum, etc, etc, etc.
I just really wish Carrie had asked me before she borrowed my legs tonight...
(not a pic from tonight, but you get the idea....her body is redicuous)
And O!.....M!.....G!....please tell me you saw James Taylor perform "Colder Weather" with Zac Brown Band. I die. That song is amazing anyway, add James Taylor and WOW. Amaze balls. May possibly have teared up a lil. You have to understand my love for everything James Taylor. His voice immediately takes me back to my childhood, my mom, the beach, California...all the good stuff.
....I just saw the first preview for "Something Borrowed!" I read this book a few years ago so I am pumped! And I love the cast they chose to play all the characters. I'm so excited to go see it!
I'm also excited to see "Water for Elephants" not just because I love Robby P and Reese but because I also read this book. Although I almost stopped (and almost burned it) several times because its about the traveling circus in the early 1900s and they are not always so nice to the circus animals. And the book is pretty descriptive about the horrible things they do to them. If you know me, I have zero ability to cope with bad animal stories. Not in movies, books, or real life. I don't do well at all. Considering how bad the book was about this, makes me nervous about the movie, fo reals. But other than that, it just looks so good!
I hope everybody has a great week. Good night and remember how lucky you are for all the good things in your life...Nieces and nephews that love you more than life, great parents, awesome brothers and sisters, fun and supportive friends, the best friend/company/snuggle partner dog ever, a fun weekend vacay with friends to look forward to, and all the fun and exciting surprises life has in store.....These are just a few of the things I'm thankful for anyway :)
