Jayhawks win!!!

If you missed this game, you missed one of the best ever! Kansas won it all April 7, 2008 against the Memphis Tigers in overtime. The final score was 75-68. The Jayhawks were down by nine with about 2 minutes to go. The ending didn't look good. But luckily, Memphis missed free-throws, and Kansas came back. With 10 seconds left, Collins and Chalmers ran up the court. Collins looked like he'd be trapped but squirmed out of the way of a defender. He dished the ball just in time to Mario Chalmers. Chalmers lined up and hit a huge 3-pointer to tie the game and go to overtime. Kansas finished it up there: NCAA 2008 champions! Brian and I are now on the lookout for some cool Jayhawk shirts. It's about time one of our teams wins! Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk!

Here's a shot for history. Mario Chalmers swishes a three!

Back to the grind...

Monday Already?
We had a very nice weekend. It always goes by too quickly!

My friend, Lacey, had her baby shower on Saturday. That was fun. I saw some of our friends and had a good time. I got her a froggy bathtub, baby soap, and flannel blanket set that I finished crocheting the night before. It turned out pretty well.

Brian and I watched the Jayhawks beat the Tar Heels. That was also very awesome. I was very excited to see them play so well. Tonight is the championship game. They better win!

We went to the Conference Center yesterday for the afternoon session of General Conference. We got left-over tickets and decided to try it out. We really enjoyed it and took a walk around Temple Square afterwards. It's too bad that the weather hasn't been better. Usually there are lots of flowers around.

And now, we are back at work. What a bummer! Can't every day be the weekend?
