March Madness


I don't know what March means at your house, but at our house it means one thing...basketball! Mike used to be on his own in his love for the game and it wasn't so bad. Now, he has Carter to egg him on and March madness is on like Donkey Kong! They ordered a "Fathead" of the brackets and have that all filled out. They submitted their brackets online I don't know how many times. I am getting a little break today because Mike is at the High School Basketball State Tournament with his buddies. Carter is out helping Adam with farm stuff. The TV is off! Whew!
In the midst of all the madness, I've already told you all that I got a surprise getaway for our anniversary. Why I got married during the month of March I do not know, but that is another story! The photo above is of a bed and breakfast in Monterey called The Garden Inn at Bee Rock. We spent the night there, went to the movies and dinner, and then up to Knoxville for some shopping. This man knows me so well!


When I got back from delivering the pets to the groomer's this morning, there was a box on the porch. I have never, ever, ever in my life had flowers or Godiva delivered. When I saw that it was an FTD box, I was like, "Lauren, get back! It's a bomb!" My husband lives and dies by his budget (and I love him for it!) and has never done this before. This is way out of character for him. Needless to say, I was blown away...and not by a bomb.

WOW! HOW WONDERFUL. THE FLOWERS ARE BEAUTIFUL. Emily is doing a great job with Melissa for the Jr. Miss. I can tell that Emily has made a difference in the way Melissa is holding herself and she is strutting her stuff all over the house. It is so funny to watch her and great to see what confidence that Emily has given her.
