Rise and Shout

A few of my favorite things came together yesterday for one of the most memorable nights we've had here in the city.
BYU+iconic NYC venue+KFC+Tuesday night date night=YES PLEASE!!!
I am a BYU cougar through and through so when we learned the cougs would be coming to play in the NIT tournament at Madison Square Garden we were all in.
Ty got off work early, we hired a sitter, and we were off!
It felt like in a weird way we had come full circle, being there at the game.
Less than two years ago we were sitting in the student section with painted faces cheering like the loud fools we were.
(Well, I would cheer and Ty would look embarrassed for me).
Last night we were watching the game as alumni in a city far from campus with our baby asleep back in our apartment.
I had a creepy proud smile as I stood up and sang the cougar fight song, all hand gestures included. 
Ty--still embarrassed.
I guess some things will never change.

It was my first time at The Garden so that was a fun experience.
I loved thinking about all of the famous people who frequent the stadium and all of the big events that have taken place there....Namely Justin Bieber concerts.

Right in the action.

SOOOOO they lost.
They tend to do that to you in situations like this.
To lesson the blow we stopped at KFC in Penn Station before heading home.
No pictures...maybe that's on purpose because anyone who saw the underground train station food establishment where we ate would say, "You ate there?!"
But also anyone who knows the Baldwins knows that places like KFC, Chik-fil-A, and Wendy's are kind of our thing so sorry I'm not sorry.
Go Cougs!
