Some of you may have noticed the snazzy new banner I put up about a week ago. I was actually quite delighted in how easy it was to create, and I think it puts a much nicer “face” to my blog. But alas, it was not for this reason alone that I created the banner.
My newbie blog is up against some tough competitors in a blogging march madness bracket.
I thought a new banner might edge me out of the competition.
SO GO VOTE FOR ME! I LIKE WINNING!
I actually meant to post about this much earlier, but alas I have been participating in my own personal yearly march madness experience in Vegas. Every year DH and I take the great trek to the land of lost wages to participate in an experience that aptly takes on the name Madness, after the tournament that spawns the craziness.
A large group of our friends from all over the country all meet for the first weekend of the March Madness basketball tournament to watch games, bet on games, drink, eat, and generally have the most merry time possible.
Although I’m in for a good 4-5 hours in the sportsbook every day, DH and the rest of the group don’t move from their seats starting at 7 am to around midnight every night. That’s around 17 hours of nonstop basketball. It’s nuts.
When I do manage to tear myself away from a room full of this:
I manage to spend time at the pool
|I DID buy this.|
And PLENTY of people watching.
Overall it’s one of my favorite yearly traditions and I’m always sad to see it come to a close.
