March Madness is…

march madness

  1. Having a panic attack mid-afternoon when you fear you may have missed one of the Sweet 16 games.
  2. Breathing a huge sigh of relief when you realize they don’t begin until after 7pm ET. Geez.
  3. Keeping your birthday open because you don’t know the game schedule yet.
  4. Wishing the games would just get here…and wanting them to last forever, all at the same time.
  5. Being grateful every day that you are an alum of the University of Kentucky!

A blue note

Have you heard?

‘Olympian Blue’ is the Pantone Color of the Week on Stylelist.com.

Designers tout the strength of its ‘jewel tones,’ and how this ‘pop of color’ enhances neutrals. As we say in the country…

Whatevs.

I say Olympian Blue is especially hot this week for one reason and one reason only…

‘Cause these bad boys are burning a trail up and down the floor!

Sweet Sixteen and beyond…

GO BIG BLUE!

In like a wildcat

It’s here. My favorite time of the year.

I love everything about the month of March.

My birthday is in March.  My sister, dad, brother-in-law, cousins, and a few friends also celebrate their birthdays in March.

So there’s lots of cake.

There’s also March Madness, the most wonderful time of the year (especially when your alma mater is currently ranked #1, and two other state schools are in the Top 25).

GO BIG BLUE!

There’s St. Patrick’s Day, the Ides of March, the arrival of spring, Women’s History Month — hey, I am a girl — and bizarre celebrations like Save A Spider Day.

Let’s face it — March rocks!

The only thing about March that I’m not totally in love with is the birthstone.  I have always found the aquamarine a bit washed out and unremarkable.

But I recently learned that the bloodstone is a March birthstone alternative — stunning!

That seals the deal — March is the best month of the year.

WAKE UP, UK WILDCAT FANS!

Tickets go on sale today for Big Blue Madness, the annual season-opening basketball practice of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, October 14th at Rupp Arena in Lexington and marks the official beginning of college basketball in the Bluegrass.

Happy days are here again!

A literal tent city has popped up outside the ticket office this week — a record 570 tents in all.  Fans like me who are far, far away from the Big Blue Nation can get tickets on the phone via Ticketmaster.

But you have to get up super-duper early to have any kind of shot, so…

WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP!
