Happy 2011, followers! I hope you all had a great first few days of 2011, I know I have!
In case you've been living under a rock or are not a sports person, TCU WON THE FREAKIN' ROSE BOWL!!!
I've started uploading my photos to flickr so I can get them on my blog more easily in the future so here's my first test:
Saturday was a long and exciting day for me! I started by waking up at 4:40 am after a few hours of sleep to go to the Rose Parade. The floats were AMAZING. I can't explain how in awe I am that everything on those floats is flower-related. Flowers, seeds, rice, it's crazy! It's sooooo beautiful!
This is one of my favorite floats from the parade. It depicts one of America's greatest presidents, ronald Reagan throughout his life.

After the parade, my mom and I walked back over to the buses and our caravan of buses had a police escort to the Rose Bowl. It was so surreal being there! I still can't believe we made it there AND WON! After hiking to the tailgate (on a golf course, swanky), we ate and I took some pictures with friends. We hiked back tot he stadium from the golf course and watched one of the coolest games I've ever watched. It comes SO close to the Utah 2009 game, but isn't quite as awesome. My mom said it's a different awesome, which is definitely true. After the game, we boarded the buses and headed back to the hotel where we ordered room service and passed out. Go frogs!
