The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

I am going to take this opportunity to share the good, the bad and the ugly from not just Bracket Land (a mystical place somewhere outside of Idaho) but also my weekend in NYC.
1. Ohio State- buzzer beater to win over Iowa Sate. This kid {Aaron Samuels Craft} hits a three pointer with a defender all up in his face. Aaron then proceeded to stand there for 37 minutes with his follow through hand in the air... guess he never saw love and basketball...

Side note: Shoulda used this guy during the look-alike post. 
Aaron looks more like Shia Labeouf than Shia Labeouf looks like Shia Labeouf


2. FGCU- Florida Gulf Coast University became the first number 15 seed to advance to the Sweet 16
Not to mention, the coach has a Howdey for a wife. As in How-dey-do-dat...

No I'm not kidding, that is his wife.

3. Kansas- Kansas be rollin rollin rollin. 70 to 58 win over what I consider to be a pretty decent UNC team. Watch out for the ole Jay Hawks this year!

Gonzaga, Georgetown, New Mexico... there are a lot of people very upset with you right now

America's Funniest Home Videos Called...




So I went with two of my best gal pals to the big city this weekend. 
There was for sure good, bad and ugly. 

These ballin new headphones that I bought...

Plus dirty gin martinis, this giraffe scarf (I have a giraffe obsession) and blowouts at the dry bar!


Went to see my girl, Carrie.
Not only was she gone, but SOMEONE ELSE LIVED THERE
And they didn't want me to take my picture on their steps.
I pictured a movie stage studio, followed by a Sarah Jessica Parker guided tour and then we'd skip together down the street and gossip about what a jerk Mr. Big can be sometimes.


We also had dinner at an Italian place called Patsy's. Hey DELISH!
My friend Magen {who blogs here} told the owner how much her momma looooved his restaurant.
He says, "Hold on... I get you something for your momma"


Dude comes back with a mouse pad. Is that not the strangest thing you have ever heard? 

The Naked Cowboy.
He wasn't ugly, per say. 
The situation sure was.
I thought we were just going to do a cute pose with the guitar or something PG rated....
I was wrong.



So, how those Brackets doing?

    1. My thoughts exactly... I'm not sure if it was a knock off naked cowboy, the original one just got a really dark tan or they tag in and out!

      AND OHHH MAN I'd love to see them crush the GATORS TOO!!!!!!!!

  14. SHUT UP, I love giraffe print. And I will root for anyone BUT Ohio State at every opportunity I get because at college, my least favorite people were all from Ohio. That might be a stupid reason for picking Iona over them, but whatever. Call me petty. ;)

    And the Naked Cowboy? AWWWKKKWAAAARD(ly awesome). :)
