Sweet16/Elite8

I thought it would be fun to blog about our adventure to the sweet 16 and the elite 8 this weekend. We really had a good time and I want to share a few pictures with you. When we first got there we were staying in the Omni which was about three blocks from Lucas Oil Stadium. Our friends were staying in the Holiday Inn, which was about 300 yards from the Stadium. So, we knew that we wanted to move there Saturday if given the chance. Of course when other teams lost their fans left and we got to move to the Holiday Inn.
Friday night we went to the game. Here are a few pictures from that game as well as the final score! Of course this was an awesome game, and the cards played an incredible game! The first picture is of Rachel, Amy, and I before the game. This was at their room in the Holiday Inn!
This is a picture of the floor from our seats. It is so weird to think that this is actually a football stadium that they have made into a basketball floor! The floor is actually raised off of the ground onto a platform. All fo the seats to the left and the right of the court are seats added on top of the football field as well. So had we been at an actual football field we would have had excellent seats. However, I still don't think our seats were too bad for the basketball game!After the ballgame Friday night I was pretty tired so we went back to the room and went to bed! Saturday we went to a sports bar/grill to watch the womens' basketball team make it to the elite 8. The bar/grill was attached to a mall, so of course we did a bit of shopping!

Saturday night we went to Bucca De Bepos! I probably so didn't spell that right sorry. We had a lot of fun here and ate lots of yummy food. Here is a picture of all of us sitting at our table enjoying our food!

After dinner we went out for a little while. Of course I didn't make it too long. I am just not the going out type. Can't help that! Sunday morning we got up and went to Steak N Shake to eat. If you haven't had the turtle carmel shake you have to get it! It's the best shake ever. Here is a picture of Chris and I at Steak N Shake.
It was so cold today in Indianapolis. I didn't expect that and therefore didn't bring clothes to wear in the freezing cold. We went to the Stadium an hour early because it was too cold to walk around downtown. Of course we didn't win the game. We were very sad for our team, but we will still had a good time and I hope you enjoyed reading about our adventure to the Sweet16/Elite8!!
