On Friday, I joined some of my Bradford buddies at Camp Randall to cheer on the Bradford football team in the State Championship game. It was an exciting game; we were all so happy for the boys to have achieved such a great accomplishment - making it to State after having come so close the year before - and were anxious for them, too. It was scoreless for most of the game, and the last 15 seconds were perhaps the most nerve wracking of them all. The boys came out on top and are now State Champs!! After the game, a bunch of us ventured over to Stadium Bar to get some dinner and celebrate. We had a blast (after we recovered Ryan's car, which had been towed during the game). I really miss my old crew!

Saturday was another great day. I was finally able to find some time to make the trek to Illinois to meet baby Blake...I was getting very antsy to do so. I was super excited when my cousin Sean contacted me to say he would be joining me at Jenny's house. It was so nice to catch up with my cousins, who I adore. We had so much to catch up on. We also did a lot of laughing, so much that my stomach ached. It was also amazing getting to spend time with Blake. He's absolutely gorgeous ( I brought my camera but was so wrapped up in conversations and cuddling with the little guy that I never took it out, so I borrowed a picture from Jenny's blog). I can't wait to see him again and I really appreciate Jenny and Louis being such great hosts. Sean, per usual, was highly entertaining. Every time we are together I contemplate moving so we can see each other more often!
All-in-all, I had a pretty great week considering I was without my hubbers. Thanks to everyone who kept me busy :)
