Thursday Thirteen #80ish Why I am excited about the BYU/ TCU game on Thursday

I am excited about the BYU/ TCU football game on Thursday it is here in Ft Worth and we are going
I love that I was able to to BYU for so many reasons
I met my true love there
l

Had so much fun w/ good friends

Was proud to share it w/ my kids


Was even more proud that my son and DIL graduated from there


I have so many memories of the mountains hiking running working one summer and Skiing


I loved the same family fun place near by as a student and 25 years later when we went for Our kids graduations

It was such a wonderful place to learn-- this is the library where I spent countless hours (some of them Studying):)It started me on a lifelong quest for learning


there was so much wonderful cultural there too: museums, concerts, art shows

I loved running up this mountain

There is such a good spirit there and team spirit too.

And they always had a great football team and this year is the no exception they are undefeated and TCU has only lost once so it should be a great game!!
