Well, well, well... It looks like I've gathered enough ridiculous and useless information to compose a blog for your liking. I should warn you, this is kinda sorta a long post filled with pictures.

The first and foremost important part of this blog is this:


For those of you who are new to this blog, don't pay attention, or I haven't mentioned it, I cannot sit through movies. I don't have that kind of attention span. Because of this ongoing problem, I have missed out chosen not to watch some of the must see movies of the last decade. Included in that list? The Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams romantic drama The Notebook. Apparently it's some classic love  story that makes every girl bawl like a baby and doesn't get old every time you watch it. When I talk to the girls at work about it, and customers who join in on the conversation (mainly the carpool moms) even say, "What?! You're a teenage girl (NO) and you haven't seen it before? You need to watch it." Whatever. I'm not a fan of Ryan, and I don't do sappy love stories. Monday, I was in a foul mood. I mean foul. I didn't want to go to class, and just wasn't in the mood to be nice. You're probably thinking, Charming, delightful Sara? In a foul mood? How could she? Just ask Mom and Dad. I ended up going to class anyway, and after what seemed like an eternity, the school/work day was over and headed home for the night to watch my beloved #8th ranked team in the country UL basketball team take on the 'nastynatti Cincinnati Bearcats. Don't worry, we won. At 10:00 I headed to bed for the night which is a miracle considering I'm usually getting ready to eat my second dinner for the night. I needed to end this day, and hopefully wake up with a new attitude. The clock on my computer ticked tocked away minute by minute, where next thing I knew it was 12:45 AM. Can't fall asleep? I'll pop in this movie that everyone is telling me I need to watch. Oh. My. Gosh. Watching The Notebook Monday night/Tuesday morning is EXACTLY what I needed. Not even an hour into the movie, I was crying, and at the end, tears were streaming down my face. That's how good the movie is. Yes, I was sleep deprived Tuesday seeing I didn't fall asleep until 3:45, but even Mom said, while I don't like hearing what time you went to bed, I'm glad you were productive and watched it. I could have saved you this too long of a story and said if you need a good cry, watch The Notebook. Seriously, you won't regret it. Noah/Ryan= Smokin' sweet heart. Couldn't have said it better. 

We all remember hearing/reading about the miserable season of the UK football team. Well, that was until the #StoopsTroops took effect, and as of last night, 30,000 some odd tickets have been sold to this years Spring Scrimmage. The 2012 Spring game attendance? 4,000. The UK athletic department is reporting that this could be one of the top 10 spring game attendances in the nation. #Winning. 

As long as we are on the subject of UK athletics, UK lost it's best basketball player Freshman Nerlens Noel with this play against University of Florida. Verdict: ACL tear. I wish you could have seen my Twitter feed that night. WARNING: this picture is gruesomely painful.  


I don't know what has gotten into me with my blog organization, but here I am talking about athletics, and my next blurb is about March Madness. Way to go Sara! No more #SaraSegwaysforme. Ladies and gentlemen, the month of March is upon us, which brings us Spring Break, the first day of spring, and that sporting event we like to call MARCH MADNESS. THREEish SOLID WEEKS of my favorite sport college basketball. There's something about hearing the squeaks of shoes on the court, watching games smack dab in the middle of the day, and the grand finale of them all: Luther Vandross's  tear jerking rendition of One Shining Moment. UofL has had an exceptional year, and some reports are saying that we could be a dark horse number one seed. It would be great to have that label, but I would be happier with maybe a two or three seed. I don't like being a target like that. UK? Moving on.  One of the great things that UL came out with last year, is their infra red/traffic cone orange post season uniforms. They were something special, and even lucky. This year? What are we? Bottom of the food chain? We don't deserve what you are about to view. 

Come Back Infra Red. I Miss You. 

Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend, and to most people that means we loose an hour of sleep; but to me, that means one thing; the market will begin staying open until 7:00 until 2014. I'll just go ahead and put the word out there, if you want to make plans with me, please let me know a week in advance so I can plan accordingly.

Spring Break cannot come fast enough. Almost all of the schools around the state are next week. Mine?TWO WEEKS later. I told the market I could work anytime during the week, but there is one day that I am taking for myself. Oooooo, a whole day off! What are you going to do? Sleep? Read? Watch Movies? Shop? No. Appointments for dayyyyysssss. This whole being a responsible adult thing is for the birds.

Catherine Middleon has made her baby bump debut, and needless to say, she is still absolutely stunning, and even rocking heels five months into her pregnancy. In Royal Family tradition, the expecting parents are to keep mum on the sex of the pending arrival, and once the new arrival has come into this world, Buckingham Palace will place a note on the gate with all of the juicy deets. I'm guessing Catherine didn't get that message, because while out on one of her many appearances and accepting baby gifts, she said to a well wisher, "Thank you, I will take that for my d..."  "'For my baby." The well wisher conversing with her totes busted her, and went on to say, "You were going to say daughter, weren't you?" I'm gonna go ahead and say that come mid July we will have our selves a miniature Catherine. And she will be stunning, lucky, loved, be a proud daughter to the man of my dreams, and future Queen of England.

Luke Russert needs to find him self some air time, because another competitor of his is slowly making his way up to the top of my stud muffin list. Luke, go ahead ahead and consider this your first warning.

His Holiness The Dali Lama is coming to the Derby City for three days of speaking engagements, and one of them, he his speaking at the basketball stadium. Yea, that's probably not the holiest of places, but his team released so many thousands of tickets, and the best brother in law in the world scored me one. #Bucketlist.

We all remember the documentation of my miserable life changing journey towards Mini Marathon greatness. After running the mini, running became almost a daily activity in my life? Stressed? Run. Frustrated? Run. Bored? Run. It became a way for me to get my emotions out, and it brought me great joy. Sadly, that time in my life has come to an end, at least for now. What am I doing to replace that activity? Ole girl has turned into a yoga nut. Thanks to a family friend, she told me about a groupon for classes at a semi new yoga studio within walking distance from the market. I try and go twice a week, sometimes three if there is a class that looks interesting. I've always loved the quote, "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone", and while I'm incredibly flexible with my bones, going to an actual Yoga studio with a certified teacher is something I would never find myself doing. I am almost finished with my groupon, and sooner or later I have to have that dreaded talk with myself to see if I want to keep this up, sands groupon. If only Yoga Studios were free.

Last night I attended a class that looked interesting, but also challenging. I told myself that with all the stress with school that is building up, a 75 minute class with weights and exercise bands would be perfect... And then, this happened...

Can we please just take a moment to stare in total awe of how gorgeous 22 year old BEST ACTRESS Jennifer Lawrence looked at the Academy Awards? 

I'm not giving her a caption on this picture, that's how classic she is. I don't care how many times you've seen clips of her falling up the stairs to accept an Oscar for Best Actress in a leading role for Silver Linings Playbook. Jennifer Lawrence hails from the Derby city, and even attending high school within minutes from mi casa. She is the poster child for small town girl who doesn't let Hollywood get the best of her. She's not the go out and get drunk staying out until four in the morning type of person or constantly finding herself in the news for bad things. Following her speech, she went to face the media in the pool room where she was her total halarious self giving ridiculous answers while still trying to let the idea of winning an Oscar sink in. If you ever find your self bored on the Internet, YouTube Jennifer Lawrence. She is so witty, and so herself. My personal favorite? Her recent appearance on Conan O'Brien. Thank you Jennifer for being the wonderful Academy Award Winning Best Actress that you are. Whatever you are doing, keep doing it. 

Finally, checking Facebook mid blog posting, I came across one of my friends statuses that summed up my current state of mood: "The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem." -Captain JackSparrow.
