Boulevard Brewery

Boulevard Wheat is my absolute favorite beer....and here I am 26 years old and I have never been on the Boulevard Brewery Tour!?! It's been one of those things I always "talk" about doing, but never follow through when my friend Amber said her aunt booked a tour for her and she had some extra spots it didn't take much persuasion for me to say...oh wait for it..."What the heck...why not?"

After a night of fun at the fights Amber and I drug ourselves out of bed to meet everyone EARLY (okay we met at like noon...but let me be dramatic!)

Our tour group...we were the loud obnoxious ones who showed up late....oops ;)

This is the staff bar... they can take a break and enjoy a nice cold beer. Why the heck didn't anyone tell me about this job? I am thinking career change! :)

Boulevard Wheat! YUMMY!!

I don't remember wha this was...remember I told you we were the obnoxious ones? Well we were also the ones that didn't listen very closely!

Beer tasting afterwards was my favorite part! Boulevard has a new beer "Chocolate Ale" that hadn't yet hit stores...and while it sounded rather disgusting I figured "What the heck...why not?" I will try it! I'm glad I tried it when it was a free sample because now I know NEVER buy smells delicious but does not taste delicious!

After a few sample beers at the brewery we decided to continue with our daydrinking and head over to PnL to watch the KU game...what a weekend!!!

Ultimate Blue Corner Battles

Yes....I am a blog slacker BUT it is not because I am not out being spontaneous, it is actually quite the opposite. I have been staying super busy fullfilling at least half of my resolution! ;)
Now, I have watched a fair share of UFC fights on pay-per-view and yes, sadly enough, I have watched a few seasons of The Ultimate Fighter (what can I say, some of those guys look pretty darn good with their shirts off) BUT I have never seen an MMA fight in person. So when the opportunity arose for me to go to a fight I couldn't help but say "What the heck...Why not?"
Thank goodness for this girl, we spent most of the fights checking guys out and deciding who would win based on names, shorts color, and what they looked like ;)

We were up close and personal!
Nic, Amber, Garret and I...right before we had to move seats...fortunately our actual seats were closer than where we thought we were sitting!

Nic and Garret bought shirts to support a fighter they both knew...well obviously I look better in the shirt than Garret so I decided I would wear it :)
