Today is the big day. The "Third Saturday in October" (which is actually the fourth this year but who's really counting!) Lane Kiffin has been talking us a storm this week but much to my surprise it has mostly been good. I do however see right threw him. He is only talking like that so that when we roll all over his team he can say how good we were and how his team was so good to hang in there with us blah blah blah!!! I'm just ready for the game. The volunteers aren't very good this year. I could probably beat their QB in a throwing contest. I'm just hoping we can hang in there and win this last one before our off week. It showed last week that we could use some down time. We're having soups and stews at the tailgate. I made broccoli and cheese soup with homemade beer bread. It is wonderful if I do say so myself!
Bullet, Me and Frank!Pre-game! After "The Mountian Block"!Bullet and Frank!The "Group" Frank, Bullet, Me, Babo, and Daddy!Mount Cody leaving the stadium! I'm pretty sure that he would have been carried off the field if he didn't weigh 300+ lbs!The scoreboard. (Since we're renovating the other scoreboard was taken off the screen to show the replay. This is the best I could do!)Bullet, Papa and FrankMy awesome Creamy Broccoli and Cheese Soup! Which I got the recipe HERE. IT was so good and easy to make! Everyone loved it!I can't believe this is my 100th post. I actually thought I would write a few things and then forget all about this thing. I have really enjoyed writing and recording all the goings on over the past 10 months!

My father-in-law in currently in the hospital. They found a blood clot in his lung Friday when he went in for a routine physical. He is so lucky that they caught it. We are so thankful. He is doing well but can use all the prayers he can get. Thanks!
My sister's dog went missing on Thursday and while we were walking on the quad Saturday and friend looked down and saw a picture of Champ on a flyer. A girl had found him but by the time we called he had gotten out of her fence. Sister and I searched a two block radius looking for him with no luck. She had created a group on facebook with his picture and updated on where he'd last been seen and wouldn't you know that someone saw him right where we were looking. Sister was so excited! We all were!
I didn't think I was going to get to go to the game but I ended up getting to sit right with my daddy and couldn't have been more excited. It was a long game. Glad we won! ( I'll have my tailgate review up shortly)
Didn't seen any of the Auburn game but I'm glad they lost!
And the Sunshine, oh how we have missed you! I just wanted to lay in my front yard and soak up as much as I could. You're supposed to stick around for a few days and I sure hope that you do!

This week is homecoming at Alabama. When I think of this week I am quickly reminded of my freshmen year when I pledged a sorority and we had to pomp all week long. It was the most awful experience of my life. Okay that might be a bit much but it wasn't fun at all. I think it rains the entire week every year and that year was no different. I, being a pledge, had to log like 20 hours pomping. We were partnered with a fraternity but they didn't help much. It was just another excuse to hang out and drink. Our lawn looked awesome we had this huge elephant that had to be put up using a crane truck! (I ended up dropping out of the sorority, it just wasn't the social scene I wanted to be a part of!)
Usually the school schedules an easy victory for the HC game. We on the other hand are playing South Carolina. This is an SEC game and the Gamecocks aren't doing to bad this year. The theme this week is Vict'ry Chicken. I am making Buffalo Chicken Dip. We'll have chicken wings, chicken fingers, chicken salad, and bar-b-que chicken. It's sure to be a good time.

Has anyone heard of it? Have you tried it?
(This is not the best post this week, just something I am hoping to get some feedback on!)

Who's excited??? I am! I just hope he isn't so weird. Word of advice Jake quit calling yourself perfect. Girls really don't want to hear that your other relationships haven't worked out because they thought you were too perfect!

This weekend flew by. I just realized I haven't posted about football all weekend. That doesn't mean it wasn't being played or that I wasn't watching, because I was.

Our first major set back...we got on the interstate and it was at a complete stand still. We weighed our options and decided to back up the on ramp and go down the highway. Glad we did because we talked to people that were stuck in it and they said it took forever. We made it to Nashville (well Hendersonville for the Battle of the Bishops Cup) around 7:15 to watch Coley cheer. It was cold. I knew it was going to be cooler but I didn't intend for it to be as cold as it was! Father Ryan won. It was a fun time. I miss high school football so it's nice to go every now and then. We headed back to Chris and Karen's house to settle in for the night. The 5:00am wake up call was going to come very early.
According to the itinerary we were meeting our caravan at 6:15am so we needed to leave the house at 6. We made it. We met an old friend of Bullet and Chris, they went to High School and College together and she goes to all the bama games. She was gracious enough to allow all five of us to pile into her Honda Pilot for the three hour tour to Lexington. We had a great trip. I laughed till I hurt at some of the stories they told us about college and growing up. Bullet and Chris rehashed every Bama game they had ever watched. It was funny to listen to the talk. Even though they are my cousins they are alot older and my parents used to go to Tuscaloosa and party with them when they were in school. It is always fun to hear stories about my parents when they were young.
We finally made it to Lexington (about 20 minutes ahead of schedule) Commonwealth Stadium wasn't in the center of campus like Bryant Denny is. People actually drove right up to the stadium and parked in the parking lot to tailgate. We had awesome seats on the second row. We are told we were on TV several times. It was such a fun game. Bama didn't bring a band which makes it difficult to sing Rammer Jammer at the end! But we did the best we could. We left the stadium, met our group, took our post game victory photo, and then headed back to the car.
There is nothing worse than the feeling that you are about the be car sick and you aren't in your car. I felt so bad but the driver pulled off and let me puke on the side of the road. I was so embarrassed. We stopped I got a Pepsi and we were back on the road. I felt much better. We made it back to Nashville in great time. We were a few minutes behind according to the schedule but we had not scheduled a stop for me to hurl. We went to a little sports bar to watch the Auburn game. Then headed back to house.
We had such a wonderful weekend. I love the road games. I think we are going to try to go with Bullet to Columbia, SC next year. Bullet has been to all of the SEC stadiums (Kentucky was the last one he needed.) Now he wants to see Bama win at all of them. I think there is only one or two that he hasn't seen them win at!
