This Bucket List stuff is getting easier...

Image
First I was Debt Free, then I watched all the first and second round games of the NCAA Tournament, then I went to a Final Four. Today, I solved a Rubik's Cube for the first time on my own. It always used to fascinate me when my brother solved one in front of me, and it really fascinates me that I can now do it too! One week after I bought it, I can solve it. Of course, I had a great teacher! Thanks Steve!

To recap...

Image
Tickets to both games: $280



Jeans at Goodwill to turn into Jorts: $3

Two new UK T's for the trip: $25 (used a gift card for this one)



Rental car/gas to Houston: $170

Fantastic gas station junk food (including Funyons, Nutter Butters, Airheads, chocolate covered cherries, and LOTS of caffeine): about $25

Fantastic real food in Texas. Fresh seafood and authentic Tex-Mex: $100+




Lodging at a beach house with this view: FREE! :)



Fun times and LOTS of laughs turning good friends into great friends: Awesome

Marking something off my Bucket List: Priceless




Sure it didn't end the way I'd hoped, but it was still an amazing trip. :-)

Getting ready to head back to the bluegrass. Here's the view we'll be leaving behind. This place is amazing.

Still pretty cool

Of course I'm sad UK lost. But I'm happy they made it farther than anyone thought (and more importantly, farther than Duke, UNC, Ohio State, and Florida!) and I'm very grateful for friends willing to take a road trip 17+ hours to watch them play. One more thing off my bucket list!
Tomorrow I'll be cheering on Butler from Reliant Stadium, and hopefully have a view of One Shining Moment from the site of the Final Four. But until then, here's the UK promo and starting line up from last night's game. And as always, Go Cats!

Including my love for the Cats. I'm concerned I had to tell Yost to cheer along with me... Oh well.

Detour!

On 31-W headed to Nashville. Traffic was a nightmare on the interstate.

On an aside. I love satellite radio. Especially the 80's channel!
