We headed to Tuscaloosa Friday night, since Alabama was playing Texas A&M.
We ended up going to watch the Tide opener in basketball. While I don’t care for basketball, I took one for the team and went so all the boys could go. I spent most of my evening people watching the fans that would go up to Trent Richardson in the stands and get his autograph.
Hubs and I watching some Hoops.
We got up at 5:00 to go set up the tailgate. I normally go run at this point, but decided not to, since I have the sickies. I haven’t ran all week and it just ticked me off.
We stopped at Panera where I saw they have poser blue cups.
B Lee has come back into our lives after a hiatus… he enjoyed a Starbucks muffin at the tailgate.
We have priorities…
Yep. Priorities with Kirk Herbstreit.
I was trying to get my vitamin C in to help my sickies.
Hanging with all my friends….
Just kidding. More people actually showed up.
Philly and myself at the game…
One of my favorite parts of the Pre-game is our video sequence.
We did a Veterans Day Half Time performance..
Can I just say that I was against inviting Texas A&M and Missouri into our conference? And obviously with good reason. Going into this weekend, I had no clue who “Johnny Football” was. And I wish I still didn’t. That kid is elusive and a Houdini in some situations. He left me completely dumbfounded. We had our chances to win that game and kept making stupid mistakes. At least we still have the SEC Championship to look forward to, as long as we beat Auburn.
I am here to tell you, that breaking down a tailgate AFTER a loss is terrible.
I felt deflated.. like the tent.
B Lee is hanging with the satellite dish
We have the sads.
We ended up driving back Saturday night. I had a photo session with the sweetest family and then worked at the store.
How was your weekend?
My weekend was pretty low key and rad…
Like hearing this little gal singing Taylor Swift at the top of her lungs.. yes. This is what she does. ALL. DAY. LONG.
Ran into this gal outside of Ruby Tuesday’s Friday night…
In which, later I ran into my nemesis… I was so pumped to be in a cute outfit with lip gloss on and she looked like she rolled out of bed. (I wasn’t going to blog about that, but I’m still riding that high.)
Hubs and I enjoyed a lovely dinner that should have been live tweeted or at least have it’s own reality show… Our convos consisted of things like this:
Hubs: “Oktoberfest is going on. I bet they’re all ‘Arg! Drink German beer! Arg’”
Me: “I don’t think they were German pirates…”
Hubs: “I bet they were all, ‘Arg. Drink Beer! Hail Hilter!’”
Another classic was him telling the waitress he was sending his fish back “Because it tastes too fishy.” DUH. YOU ORDERED FISH.
We ended up going to Oktoberfest and ran into this favorite lady… and then I had a blueberry beer which was delicious!
Let’s not forget my race PR Saturday… which was followed by a bunch of this…
I did work on that list… some.
Sunday we went Halloween costume shopping– it was uneventful. And stressful.
But we enjoyed a delish lunch at Red Robin…
I am happy to report that we found those Essie nail polishes on Amazon and half of them have come in… YAY.
I have also made the ridiculous decision to start the Paleo diet tomorrow… I’m hoping for at least two weeks out of it, to see how I feel. We shall see..
Anyone tried it?!
My weekend started extremely early Saturday, by leaving my house by 6:45 to drive 2 hours for Addy’s gymnastics meet.
Good thing she is cute.
I will say, I think this weekend was a valuable competition lesson. She doesn’t bring her A game for competitions. She was thrown into an age group that contained both 5 and 6 year olds and this was a first for her. She didn’t earn a red or a blue ribbon. She came in consistently in 5th place. Which, is fine with me, as long as she is trying her best. But, she isn’t.
They gave out special sashes and flowers to the girls who scored the highest on each event.. Addy (and the rest of her team) were pretty upset about not getting this. Philly and I discussed the night before how I thought Addy would finally “get” that it was a competition when she didn’t receive a blue or red ribbon. I think I was right. She has been wanting me to watch her cart wheels all weekend for pointed toes and straight legs.
I hurried back for a much anticipated date with Becca to see this:
Let’s not even talk about how mad I am at the ending. It’s total crap and made me hate the movie.
It needed more of Channing with his shirt off.
Have we talked about this?
I didn’t think so.
It rocks my face off. You need to read it. Katniss is a way better character than Bella.
I started re-reading the series this weekend.. it’s amazing.
Did y’all watch the Grammy’s last night?
Where are these people’s stylists??!?!
Also.. I find this hilarious. I do not know why.
What did you think of the Grammy’s?
Have you read the Hunger Games? I can’t wait until March 23rd.
What did you think of The Vow? I’m still mad to think about it.

All in all, it was a great Saturday!
