Project 366: Day 82, 03-22 Cookin’ Up a Victory

Our little chef is prepping for a cook-down in STL. Fun with the KU apron; will need to update at some point with Cory’s cape pic.


Project 366: Day 78, 03-18 WOW

What a nail-biter! I wish I had a picture of the Hawks at the end of the game, but I was too busy jumping up and down and yelling my face off.

Tonight game was the best game I have ever attended! Survive and advance.

KU 63 – Purdue 60


Project 366: Day 76, 03-16 KU v. Who

Was so lucky to have center court tickets to the KU v. Detroit game tonight. Most of the first half was kind nerve-stacking, but I ended up breathing by half-time.

Wish we were there for the MU loss, but took a sake bomb to celebrate. See ya!



Project 366: Day 71, 03-11 Selection Sunday

One of the best days of the year! Jayhawks are headed to Omaha and hopefully St. Louis…we will be going to both to cheer them on. So excited!


Project 366: Day 56, 02-25 The Good Guys Won

Kansas v. Mizzou. The Border War. Last game of a 100+ year rivalry.

Wow. Today’s game was so intense, I could barely watch (but I did…eyes partially covered). Of course, the good guys won. Muck Fizzou!

The Crossing was nuts after the win…


Friday Fave: Our Father…

I get so superstitious this time of year. It’s MARCH MADNESS!!

I’m on America’s side as Kansas plays Richmond in the Sweet Sixteen tonight, and these are the words that will help me get through the day:

Our Father, who art in Lawrence,
Hallowed be thy Game.

Thy Tourney come,
Thy Championship will be done,
In San Antonio as it is in Allen Fieldhouse.

Give us this day,
Our deserved victory,
And forgive us our turnovers,
As we forgave Roy,
Who double-crossed against us.

Lead us not into defeat,
But deliver us from the East coast bias.

For Kansas is the Basketball Kingdom, the Tradition, the Glory,
Forever and ever,

Wedding Wednesday: RCJKU!

I realize it’s been quite a few weeks since I’ve done a Wedding Wednesday post – shocking because it’s obviously my favorite series on Thi2’s Takes.

It’s March Madness and as we head into the best sports season of the year, I wanted to honor our beloved Jayhawks! As proud alum of the great University of Kansas, Cory and I (and many of our friends) incorporated several Jayhawk details on our big day.


So, would you give a nod to your alma mater on your wedding day? What kinds of college details have you seen and liked?

Score Big Sunday: Here’s to You, Mrs. Robinson…

While for many Kansas fans (including me), a loss in Allen Fieldhouse and the end of a 69-game home win streak last week was tough to swallow. It’s actually small potatoes compared to the sudden loss of your 43-year-old mother.

The flurry of four technical calls seemed unfair on Saturday afternoon, but how fair was the call 19-year-old sophomore forward Thomas Robinson received from his 9-year-old sister, Jayla, at 11 p.m. on Friday night?

Yet, T-Rob laced up his sneaks and played against the Texas Longhorns just hours after learning of his mother’s tragic death. Continue reading
