Let me start off this post by introducing you guys to the MOST exciting thing to happen in 2012 so far.
Reese Erin was born!!!!!!!!!!
Our 2nd Niece, Reese, was born last Wednesday. Isn't she just so incredibly precious?? Kevin & I went straight over to the hospital after work the night she was born so we could meet Riley's new baby sister!
|Such a natural.|
Anywho, we've also been super busy cheering on our CATS.
|Oh Heyyyy Doron... :)|
I'm sorry, I can't help but be a little obnoxious over the fact that it's good to be a Wildcat fan. I feel like I've earned the right to be a bit pious because I did attend UK during the down years, which was every bit as painful as it sounds. It would be like if Alabama was all of a sudden terrible at Football. It just doesn't happen. And to say that fans were cranky with a losing record would be the understatement of the century. Therefore, it feels flippin fantastic to cheer on such amazing teams again.
Truth be told, on gamedays, it doesn't matter who we are playing, every bar is absolutely packed w/ UK fans, which makes every game beyond fun to watch. I was lucky enough to watch this past game with one of my college bffs (& sorority sister & former roommate), Erin! We're lucky that South Carolina didn't give us much of a game because we probably talked through about 96% of that match up. Love love love my college girls.

As all married people know, marriage is all about give & take. After frequenting the bar scene all throughout college, I can only handle being in a bar for so long, until I am ready to pound my head against a wall. So, once UK had won & it was looking like the Bengals were gonna lose, I was able to talk Kevin into heading over to Whole Foods for some Vino.
So, although I know I've mentioned it before, if you have a Whole Foods in your town, make SURE to ask about their wine tastings. The one in Lexington does FREE (Check it, Bargain Blonde) wine & liquor tastings every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. And when I say tasting, I mean each pour is the equalivlent of 1/4 of a glass. Plus, they will tell you all about the origin of the wine, the best food pairings with each, etc. Obviously, I take advantage of this as frequently as possible. I think Kevin might have been embarrassed when about 1/2 the room knew my name when I walked in. To Me, on the other hand, it felt like I was the long lost cast member on Cheers. I loveeeee it!
So as you all can see, between work & school starting back, gaining a new niece, and keeping our UK fan dedication at an adequate level, I have been busy. But, now that I'm back in a routine, expect some quality posts coming your way soon. Thats about it for now! xoxoxoo
