Favorite March Madness Memory

A few years ago when Guy and I had been dating for about 6 months, Guy gave me the best surprise ever (well 3rd best surprise ever!)! I can't remember if it was the first or second round of the NCAA tournament but UK and UC were playing each other and the game was in Indianapolis! I am a pretty big UK/basketball fan (not as big as my mom) and since I played all throughout school, I really enjoy the sport. Anyways. The day of the game, Guy had made plans with 2 other couples (Joe and Ashley Hibbett and Kat and Tom Hansen) and we were getting together to hang out all day long and then watch the game that night. They had decided to meet up at the Florence mall to have lunch and so that Guy could pick out a UK shirt. I was frustrated by these plans because I had so much homework to do and was hoping to finish before the game. But I agreed and showed up to the mall wearing my UK shirt with my homework. Everyone else had their UC shirts on. So after lunch, they all decided that it would be fun to go see a movie down at Newport on the Levee. Guy said that he would drive us all because he had borrowed his parents van (his car was apparently "at the shop"). I was stuck! I had to go with everyone and so my plans were put on hold. We all piled into the van and started driving down to the expressway. This when I started to get really frustrated!! Here is how the conversation went between Guy and I:

Me: (I was in the passenger seat) Guy, if we're going to Newport don't you think we should take that exit? You're getting ready to pass it.
G: No, we can cross over the bridge and then get on 471 South.
M: Okay.'re passing the way to 471! You're going the wrong way! (ughhhhh, sighhhhhhh, throwing head back in the seat!!!)
G: Oh, I know of another way to go.
M: No, there is not another way. Can you turn around? (we were in Cincinnati)
G: Yea, just let me find the right exit.
M: Okay take this one...........Why did you just pass it???????????? This is so frustrating. (everyone else is in the car with us while this was taking place and at this point we were driving towards Indiana!)
G: Andrea-where does this interstate take us?
M: UGHHHH!!!!! I don't know! Indiana?????
G: Right. And what's in Indiana!
G: Think about it........
M: The UK game?
G: Right. We're going to the UK game.
M: What???????

Ha ha. It was so funny! And I was so surprised! We had such a great time! And the CATS totally beat UC! And a lot of our friends were there too! Like my sister!

How sweet was my future husband! He's the best. And he knows the way to my heart. :) We were engaged about a year later. I love you Guy!

P.S. Of our relationship-1st best surprise: finding out we were pregnant, 2nd best surprise: engagement, 3rd best surprise: UK game!

GO CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
