How much did you get for your trade-in? And - what kind of car is that? I've never seen anything like it before...

Lotsa stuff is happening.

I am a busy, busy girl, and I need to update the blog like you would not believe.

First, here's Bruce. He's quite sad because he is naked.

I LOVE HIM. But he really wants this:

(Note the fact that it says Rock Chalk in white. That's key.)

He also wants some of those sweet car coasters and other things to generally pimp him out.

In related news, Mom won the deviled eggs competition this Easter. It was very carefully judged, although no surprises, obviously. Here are the competitors for anyone who was not there:

Next, I got to watch some of the Twin's opener in Target field from Michael Dady's office. I couldn't figure out how to zoom on my iPhone camera, so I had a much better view than this represents. It's pretty great:

Finally, operation domestication continues. After making mac and cheese and hummus from scratch the other night, I then turned these clearance table clothes and napkins that Mom found at JoAnn into curtains:

So Paul and I are going to the Twins/Royals game on Friday night. I need some Royal's gear (Katie, if you could pick me up a nice tee before you guys come down in June, I'll pay you back). For now, I will just wear my baby blue sweater. Although I might have my Believe shirt, now that I think about it...


Yep, the one and only Commissioner (aka Sean Kellerman) found this gem for me. I LOVE it. I can't wait for next Bball season so I can wear it. Or, even football.

Oh, and did you guys hear the news???

I agree with Danny.

Best post yet.


Katie - you should probably go eat at the Yacht Club more often. Glad to hear Lawrence is treating you well. Hopefully Coach Self can land a couple more recruits since Xavier just declared to go pro.

Tuesday's Lunch: Including Bill and Danny

So the story begins two years ago (roughly) when my father (Pappa K.) purchased a shirt for $1 which we were out at a garage sale. The shirt says "1988 National Champions: Jayhawks." On the back it reads "the hawks spread their wings when the fat lady sings." It is a phenomenal shirt. It is the shirt that the national title team was given directly after their victory in 1988.

I wore this shirt yesterday for the first time in a few months, and after my classes Brittnee and I decided to eat lunch at the Yacht Club. In walks Bill Self, and Danny Manning. I freak out, but keep my composure as I eat my cheeseburger and french fries. As we end our meal and pay for our food Brit and I get up to leave. We happen to walk right in front of the table that sits Bill and Danny. As we are walking by, Bill points to me and says "Hey, Danny, you recognize that shirt, don't ya?" Naturally, I freak out and pause in my place. Danny Manning then responds, "Yup, I think I still have it too." I laugh. I then say, "Ya, one of my best shirts" and continue to walk so as to not bother them while they eat. I then turn around and say "Rock Chalk" and both Bill Self, and Danny Manning look at me and say "Rock Chalk."

Best story ever. I fell in love.
