March Madness

I can't say I'm a huge college basketball fan, but I love watching the drama unfold during March Madness. My family always fills out brackets and competes to get the best score ... and normally we are all way off on who wins, but it's still a lot of fun! :)

John and I have had Abby fill out brackets every year - which is always hilarious! Our 'method' for the little ones is having them pick out colored blocks for who they want to win. A green block is for the higher seed, and a red block for the lower. :) Tim gets to fill his out tonight - we'll see how many upsets he will pick! ;)  This year, I found a Mascot Bracket and had Abby use that. She mainly picked every dog and cat, and Notre Dame because she recognized them...but her overall winner is UAB Blazers (#14 Seed, so we'll see! haha). Why? Because they are a Dragon and she thought that was pretty cool. :)

Filling out the brackets last night :) Serious business! ;)


As for my picks...here is my Final Four:

Notre Dame (Midwest) vs. Baylor (West) and MSU (East) vs. Gonzaga (South)


If we lived in a perfect world, I'd have Notre Dame vs. Gonzaga in the final game, with Notre Dame winning it all. Probably never going to happen, but a girl can dream! ;)


Who do you think will take it all? Don't forget to fill out your brackets!

  1. Hahaha I love it! I have Mich St and Gonzaga in my final 4 too. I'm not a huge basketball fan but my husband is so this is a fun way to stay involved and interested in what he is.

  4. It was hard having IU losing to ND but we'll see. Prepare for heartache with Gonzaga...they are one of my favorite teams but they always choke!

  5. March madness is so fun to watch :) I love doing the brackets with the kids because they typically do well randomly picking :)

  8. I think the less you know the better you do! I always over think it, plus I don't like certain teams so I refuse to put them past the Sweet 16 ;)

  9. Yeah Abby, pick the Georgia Bulldogs! We have done coin flips in the past for Cora's bracket, and she loved that. We also do the women's bracket--I picked ND to win the whole women's tourney this year! However, I played it safe on the men's one since we did a buy-in at my work.

  10. Those bulldogs made it to her Elite 8 :) I never think of doing the women's brackets. ..we should do a bracket challenge with our book club girls next year :)

  11. LOVE this! We just had our four year old fill out a bracket and it was a complete trip! We would call out the two schools and her responses were hilarious - "pepperoni" for Providence and "Utan" for Utah in addition to lasagna, hamburger, and Colby's hat! Her bracket will probably win the family bracket contest! :) Thanks for linking up with Waiting on...Wednesday @ While I'm Waiting!

    Have a great day!
