One of my cousins is getting married in November.  He is a Bama alum and didn't look at the schedule when the date was picked because they are getting married on the day Bama plays LSU.  Thankfully we play a small school team that probably won't be on TV.  He will be in a world of trouble if the ceremony is scheduled during game time.
I am trying to figure out something to wear to the wedding and have decided to buy something new instead of pushing myself to be able to shop in my own closet (yes I probably should be pushing).  I have decided to finally give Modcloth a try.  Has anyone ordered from them?

A few I like but can't decide on.

This one comes in black too and would make a great little black dress.

Soccer Season

I got a text from S Saturday morning letting me know G-man had his first soccer game.

G-man and his pal N being told something by the coach. Probably to watch the ball and play the game. They were more interested in goofing off together.  

They both play when they get separated. The coaches forgot that at first Saturday morning.  
I am not gonna lie they are so cute at this age playing. They get confused as to which is their goal and the fact only the goalie touches the ball.  

The big brothers chilling with snow comes.  H said he was thirsty so we went for a drink and he saw the snow cone machine.

A Mini Vacation

Last week I met up with my grandmother, parents and brother in New Orleans for a couple of days.  Out main goal was to see the World War II museum. 

We stayed at The Blake Hotel.  It was perfect for what we needed in walking distance and for catching the streetcar.  Right after we arrived someone came along and posted this no parking sign due to filming.  The guy in the background is my little brother.  

I realized when I got home I only took two pictures.  I was to busy reading the map to get around and enjoying what I was seeing.  At least that is what I am saying so I don't feel like I was being lazy by not pulling out my camera or phone. 

I got one picture at the museum (there are signs that say not to take them).  This is a 1942 Harley Davidson.

Motivation Monday

This one seemed fitting after all the driving I did last week for a trip to New Orleans.

Football Love

I come from a family full of football fans.  The rest of my family either cheers for Alabama or Auburn.   I decided to not piss anyone off and go my own way.

This picture has shown up a couple times in my feed on Pinterest and it makes me smile every time.

Because it makes me think of one of my grandmothers.  Nanny is a Bama alum and at age 86 she still cheers hard every Saturday for them.  She keeps a printout from the Tuscaloosa News with the players names and numbers.  She thankfully does not have the personality of Maxine.  I hope I live as long and am still able to cheer for my team and still understand the ever changing NCAA rules.
