Basketball Lover





(don't worry, I have leggings on...)

Thrifted: nightgown maxi skirt, belt, clutch, bracelet, earrings

Celtics 2, Heat 2!  Yup, you heard that correctly, I've been watching the basketball games.  I hate basketball, or at least I thought I did.  But for some reason now, I just can't get enough.  I'm even the one reminding the husband to turn the game on!  In fact, we are watching the 5th of the 7 game series right now.  It's pretty intense though because my team (yeah, I have a team), the Boston Celtics, are down by 7 and that just can't happen tonight! My boys need to step it up... But I won't bore you with the game stats, I just had to tell ya about this new, weird, unfitting, out of character obsession of mine.  Especially since the only reason I ever turned a game on before was to see the celebrities in the stands or to listen to the cool squeaky sounds their shoes made. - Out of character obsession right?- Does this make me a closet basketball lover?  Good thing I just came out!
