The Good News? Or the Good News?

Whew! What a weekend. Chris was in Vegas for his annual "man-cation" for the first and second round of the NCAA tournament. I snuck out of the office on Thursday to meet Lisa and Jenny for the KU basketball game. I was nervous, but it ended up being a somewhat easy win. I've learned not to take anything for granted though!

Nick and my mom came to Kansas City for the weekend early Friday. We watched basketball, played with Ellie, I got a haircut and highlight, got a pedicure with Em and watched more basketball.

The first bit of good news is that KU advanced to the Sweet Sixteen. They surpassed the "Thirsty Thirty-Two" as my mom prefers everyone start calling it. Ellie was clad in her very best Jayhawk garb for the game on Saturday.

The second bit of good news is that I was accepted into the Smoky Hill River Festival on June 13, 14 and 15! An art fair in Salina in it's 32 year. What makes it so exciting (other than the screams from my mom when I phoned to tell her that I got in) is that I have been to the Festival every single year in my 32 year existence. I went to my first Festival at nearly 6 months and I've been back every year since. In a way, I've come full circle. I'm very much looking forward to it.

This is a great show with a wonderful reputation. For a town of 50,000 people, the show has an attendance of 75,000. That's pretty impressive! I prepare for the show I will finally have some more work to post. I feel like I've taken six months off and now it's time to get started again.
