Pour Some Sugar on ME!

So happy after the big WIN!!!
Me with Louie Sakoda.  Pretty sure this photo may be worth something someday!  haha

Jeff and I with a replica of the trophy which will now be displayed at the U!!! (not the replica the real thing) Yeah!
New Orleans was a lot of fun.  I got there on New Year's Eve.  Jeff and I went to an early dinner because I had been on a plane and was starving.  We ate at a place called Zea's and I had some Thai BBQ ribs, cabbage and black-eyed peas (for good luck in the new year) and Thai snap peas.  It was very good. Jeff had fried catfish and cheesy corn grits (heavenly!!)
We went to fan-fest.  The two pictures from above.  Then we went on a paddle boat dinner cruise on the Mississippi.  It was really cool.  The pictures didn't turn out great it was too dark.
We went back to the hotel and tried to get some sleep but it was business as usual for Jeff with the phone ringing off the hook so we finally just got up and watched the fireworks over the Mississippi and then tried again to sleep.
New Year's day I went to the wives activity which was pretty fun.  We decorated parasol's and then were in a Mardi Gras style parade.  We threw beads and followed a band through the streets to the restaurant for lunch.
The following day I did a short hour tour with my father-in-law and then off to the game.
The rest is HISTORY!!
Go UTES! and Happy New Year.

Every time the Utes are playing I just try to find Jeff on the sidelines. And each time I see him I announce it and get super excited. It's like playing where's waldo! Glad you had so much fun though. I'll see you tomorrow morning.
