Now, let's go shopping...

When I think things couldn't get any better, I had the most exciting thing happen last night. I cheered, I laughed, I cried. And you wonder what this wonderful thing was? It was Kansas winning the NCAA Tournament. That's right.


Not only did I win my family pool ($60), but I also came in 3rd at my office pool ($10), in which I was the only girl. There is nothing like beating a bunch of men at something sports related. Oh, they get so pissed. I got the following text message from my brother Austin last night:

Me and Dad agree that we are tired of seeing you woman win the freakin' pool

I had even received the following voicemail from my dad earlier in the day:

THE MEMPHIS TIGERS ARE GOING TO DESTROY THE KANSAS JAYHAWKS! YOU'RE GOING DOWN!
I capitalize this only to demonstrate the awesomeness of the situation....

And so last night, as the males in my life went to bed mad, I cracked open a Coke, sat on the couch, thought about my new found money and shopped for shoes online.

I must mention that your celebration is only a result of Memphis being unable to shoot free throws. I am sure that you knew this fact due to your extensive research, it was because of your expert knowledge of this fact that you won the pool.

Nice Nat... I wish I could say I did so well in my office pool, but I was way off. And that's the last time my husband will help me with my bracket.

congrats on the pools, and on the new job!

What's with everyone having an office pool? I LOVE swimming!

Congrats, Nat. You are a sports GENIUS! It's incredible.

What kind of shoes did you buy me?

Oh Nat, I love ya! I am so proud of you for winning. Although I can brag and say I did pick Kansas to win the whole championship, I didn't do that great on the rest of my bracket. Props to you! I am excited to see you in a month or so!

Amen sister! That is a beautiful feeling. Sadly to say I didn't win the pool this year... but two years ago I was the ONLY person in my fam (the in-laws) that had Florida winning it all. My in-laws are crazy competitive and it was so awesome to beat them at their game! Congrats.
