And Just Like That…I’m Out!

March Madness is like Christmas in March in my house.  I guess that’s what happens when you are married to a basketball coach!  Every year we pay close attention to Selection Sunday, listen to all of the analysts, and fill out our brackets.  The whole family gets involved and my daughters love to rub it in when their brackets are doing better than Dad’s!  (As of this evening, they are all tied for 5th place and I have dropped to 14th.) 
So, when my friend Ashlyn at The Creative Classroom emailed about a fun March Madness Blogger Match Up, of course I was in! 
We were randomly paired with a team from the tournament.  Well, it doesn’t take a coach’s wife to know that when you are the 16 seed playing the 1 seed it’s most likely going to  be a short tournament for you! It was fun to cheer for the underdog during the Lafayette/Villanova game but the realist in me knew that I would soon be sending a gift to my competition, Karri at One Sassy Teacher
I am also doing a fun March Madness giveaway here on my blog! You can win the same S.U.P.E.R. Sentences pack I sent Karri and ONE other item of your choice from my store!  Enter using the Rafflecopter below, giveaway will close tomorrow night!
