Adventures for Memorial Tickets

As of this morning JM and I were patiently waiting to see if we would get tickets for the Memorial Golf Tournament which is in Columbus this weekend....

as the day went on we became more and more discouraged that we may be sitting in the comfort of our living room watching it

and then i got an email from one of my besties Aly saying that her dad had 2 extra tickets, and if I met her half way from her house [we live in OH and she lives in IN], we could have them.....

So JM drove

and I was a good passenger

mainly because JM handed over his Ipod Touch about 2 minutes into the trip and told me to play my games [he clearly knows that i'm not a good car traveler - i'm worse than a 2 year old with having to stop to go to the bathroom, asking if we are there yet, asking how much further, begging him to stop for a drink, ect - you get the point!] so i played this game - the WHOLE time... if you don't have the app - i highly recommend it - its free.. and totally worth it!
leaving Ohio....

passing the Indiana border sign [sorry that i zoomed in too much!]

and in 2 miles after we crossed the border we met up with Aly... I still can't believe that Aly drove 2 1/2 hours round trip to meet us to give us the tickets...ALY you are truly the best, and we can't thank you enough! We are so lucky that you drove all the way for us - thank you for being so thoughtful - and thank you to Big Jim for giving us his tickets!

We literally saw each other long enough to hand over the tickets, hug and then we were both back on the road.

It was a short trip to Indiana but it was sure with it!

JM and I are very excited to go to the tournament today!
