I grew up in a household with a father that LOVED basketball, more specifically college basketball. Growing up, if a game was on, we got the “Not now…the game is on!” comment fairly frequently. You had two jobs….stay, BE QUIET,and watch the game OR leave. That was it…no questions asked. And this, my friends, is where I learned to love the sport of basketball. Mind you, never picked up a ball to play an actual game, but I love it. My sister and I are grateful to our father for MANY reasons and this time of year we appreciate him even more!

Why else am I so happy being a Florida Gator, you ask?? (If you aren’t asking…I’m gonna tell you any way!! 😆)

WE ARE NUMBER 1 in the AP Poll !!!!

We have 2 National Championships- 2006 and 2007. Maybe Billy and his Gators will go for #3!!!

It’s GREAT to be a Florida Gator!

3. Shoes
I’ve been really getting into different shoes lately. This is a love that I have picked up from my mother. I dub her “Junior Imelda Marcos” (remember her with the wall to wall closet of shoes???) because she literally has a shoe in every color and probably for every occasion. Before I became a PA, I was an Athletic Trainer (you know…they guy or gal that runs out on the field when the player gets hurt??? That was me!!) at a high school in Miami. My “uniform” was shirts and sneakers,,which I adored! I, like my mother, had a sneaker in every color!
It wasn’t until I changed my profession that I started thinking out of the traditional “black and brown” shoe box. I started to find spunky shoes that I could jazz up an outfit with for work. I mean I wear a white coat ALL day…how boring is that??? My mother would be so proud…..

What do you think about THESE babies??? I found these at Payless for……$19.99!!!! Woo Hoooo!!!

4. Honey Crisp Apples
Have any of you TRIED these??? Wow!!! Perfect mixture of sweet and tart apple. I’m am usually a Granny Smith Apple kinda of girl, occasionally dallying in the world of Gala and Fuji’s too. But man, when I accidentally picked this apple up (I thought it was something else!)….I have NOT turned back! I’m not sure if they have a season, per se, but when I get them…I get ALOT of them! They can be rather costly…ie bought one at Wally World today and it was $1.67 for ONE!!!!

    Hahaha … I liked that big apple = big love of apple photo.

    As for basketball … so I know YOUR favorite college team … what about your dads? I used to be soooo addicted to watching sports. I tend to not watch a lot anymore … but when a game is on and it catches my eye…arrgghh….it’s like a giant magnet got a hold of me.

    LOVE those apples! Get some if you get a chance!!!
    My dad has always been a huge fan of UNC but has also added UF and Michigan (where my sister went). But also being a NY’er…Syracuse and St John’s are favs too!!
    Sports are great but they are such a time suck too!! Like I could be more productive instead of watching on the couch… Having a beer!!!
    What about you??

    (I am thinking about erasing all that you just wrote except the part that stays, “Having a beer!!!” I LIKE that part 🙂 )

    As for St John’s …. your dad was a Chris Mullin fan then? That WAS a great era of basketball.
