There are not many words other than WOW to describe yesterday's game. I mean, it was WOW. Actually come to think it was: WOW, INTENSE, CRAZY, UNJUST, AMAZING, TERRIFYING, & HEART ATTACK INDUCING!!!! My goodness, BAMA, I had gotten slightly adjusted to the concept of being able to breathe during a game. :)

No matter it ended great! Bama 27 LSU 21. We are going to the SEC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME IN HOTLANTA!!! Yep, we are! I can't think about it without grinning. Right now I have to remember we have 2 more games before that one: Miss State & Auburn. Neither will be a cakewalk due to their want to knock us down a notch.

This weekend my sister & her four kids came down to visit & watch the game. I LOVE to have the kids here. Just having them roaming the house brings a kind of weird calm. I mean sure it is chaotic compared to our average weekend, but it is a wonderful type of chaos. My sister is doing well, though she might be stretching herself in a thousand directions. Yeah, Nina, you might be :). But I know I don't walk in your shoes so I can't see your view, but I do love you. Hearing about your day can make me dizzy sometimes, but to be honest I probably would not know what to say if you told me something different. As for the kids, they are definitely growing up. Jon - a word to the wise - TIMING is EVERYTHING. :) You know what I'm talking about.

Saturday morning Nina & I went over to a friend of Marcus' to see some art that she had for sale. Yeah, I found a painting, I bought a painting... Marcus was floored to say the least. I am glad to say though that five minutes ago he told me he really thought the picture looked amazing in the dining room & that he enjoyed razzing me about it yesterday. Sometimes I wonder if he truly does get his kicks picking on me!

Then Saturday night I took Christian, Anna, & Jessica to see HSM3. The girls had already seen it but loved seeing it again. Nina took Jon to Eagle Eye, they both raved about it. I must say that in our movie, the women screeched everytime Zac Efron was onscreen. The men in the theater whistled everytime the girls came on screen (they really did not mind which one, they just whistled). Crazy. It was good though.

Today Mom & Dad came up to visit with the kids and we had a great relaxing Sunday. It was so much fun. The weekend will tire you, will wear you down, will make my dog like a ragdoll he is so tired, will make you grumpy, but it will also make me smile, make me laugh, make me miss my 'kids' even more, and will make me appreciate every Saturday & Sunday that I get to experience. Anyway, here are some pics! Nina - steal them from mine & put them on yours :):):):):):)


  1. Cute pictures! Yes, the game freaked me out, too. I had to pause the DVR just before overtime, go to the bathroom, get a drink, etc., etc., so that I could come back and just fast forward to the good stuff. Also, I'm sure you're aware, there's a sneak peak of Twilight tonight (Monday) during Heroes, which airs on NBC at 8 p.m. I didn't want you to miss it!!

  2. Thanks for the heads up Cheyenne! Courtney, the picture of Peanut says it all! Here to hoping the next game doesn't cause heartattacks!

  3. Cheyenne -Yeah, I saw on the Lex that it would be during tonight's show. Thankfully it is one our shows we watch & DVR. :) lol. Thanks for the reminder.
    Tracy - I know poor pup was so pooped! He was just like a baby when bedtime came around. We put him on the bed and he just sprawled out, never moved, slept all night long. lol.
