Go Kansas!

Okay so I'm not one that follows college basketball, or any other sport for that matter, very regularly. However, when I learned that Jake chose Kansas to win in his bracket at work and more importantly that if he won he wanted to use the $200 plus to go toward a weekend getaway for just the two of us my interest was peeked! So for the first time in my life I've followed March Madness very closely and have actually surprised myself how exciting it has been. And last night was the most exciting of all when Kansas beat Memphis in an INTENSE final game to take the NCAA championship! GO KANSAS! Even though most people favored Memphis to win, Kansas proved to be the better team (thanks to Memphis' inability to shoot free throws... and Chalmers sweet 3 point shot with 2 seconds left which sent them into over time...way to stay focused under pressure!) So weekend getaway here we come!
This is how I felt too when they won...we haven't had a night without the kids EVER...it's time!
