“I’m not a big sports fan, but I love it when they ‘slam dunk.’ That’s sexy.” Emma Bunton

By the looks of that quote above, it turns out Baby Spice and I have more in common than I thought! I attended my first K-State basketball game tonight — which they won, go Wildcats! EMAW, KSU, and all things purple! I am totally lost when it comes to football (too many rules, it moves to slow, it’s so violent and angry, and enough with the concussions already!), but I can handle basketball just fine! In fact, I’m not too shabby at shooting, we had a basketball goal on our driveway growing up and I made shots pretty easily without really knowing what I was doing. When it comes to being an aggressive team player, though…no thanks, I’ll assume my rightful position in the stands!

Today, I wasn’t quite as tired as the previous 2 days. I got to sleep in until *gasp* 5:30am! But that extra 30 minutes did make a big difference in the long run. I had my favorite peanut butter cup smoothie for breakfast (and just a reminder, this only has 4 ingredients in it: 1 cup coconut milk, 1 frozen banana, 1/4 natural peanut butter, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder), and that kept me full all day. The hubs and I met up with another couple at Tallgrass Tap House for drinks (gin for me of course, everyone else sampled the in-house beers), but hubs and I both hadn’t eaten dinner so we split an order of poutine. Soooooooo, the fried fries, the beer infused brown gravy, and the cheese curds ALL broke the diet rules — but it was for one appetizer, NOT a whole day lost! It was worth it though…

While we were at the game, the next round of wintery weather started coming down. By the time the game ended, Our car was completely coated in ice…so that was a fun walk across the parking lot! But because of that icy goodness, I need to cut this blog short so I can get to bed. Looks like I’m going to have a very early, dark, freezing, icy start to tomorrow and I’m going to be out salting all concrete surfaces!

My song for today is going to be Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing.” The kids watched “Sing” this afternoon and Tori Kelly’s voice singing that as the character Meena is STUCK in my head!!!

G’night, everybody!
