This past weekend Jamie and I made the trip up to Tally for our annual FSU tailgating and Noles game. We had a great time, even though it was chilly and Jamie’s team didn’t win. While we were there we got to see Maggie (Jamie’s cousin- who is a Marching Chief), Holly (Jamie’s youngest sister) and our friends Sean and Stephanie- thanks for letting us crash at your place guys. We enjoyed the game, I was bundled up even more than this picture shows (it was in the 40’s and breezy), and Jamie got to use his big lens to take some pictures during the game. All-in-all it was a good time, but I am glad to be home.
Yesterday, was the USM vs. UCF football game- and we WON!!!! Woohoo!!! I was doing a little happy dance all day. I love the fact that we won, especially since it was against UCF (whom I hate with a passion) and so many of my colleagues and students were talking trash all last week. I kept my mouth shut, knowing that we were down a few key players and I didn’t want to have to eat my words. All of these things make the victory sweeter- I wasn’t trash talking last week (and the UCF fans were), we were down two key players (one of which is our star running back), it was their homecoming, we got to tailgate, the tickets were free and well, we won!!! I think this calls for another WOOHOO! I think that I will leave my header up for a little longer to enjoy the sweet taste of victory and I am going to be sporting some Southern Miss apparel to school tomorrow, just to rub it in.
I know that I have already posted today but… SOUTHERN MISS is playing UCF this weekend! I am hardly excited at all. I made the header months ago and have been waiting until the perfect moment to post it and I think that a week long celebration is appropriate. I really, really, really have a strong dislike for UCF- actually they make my blood boil and I do a happy dance every time they loose. I promise that I am not competitive it’s just that I don’t like the knights (not my wonderful friends the Knights- love you Nan and Jeremy) the UCF kind… So, I really hope that we will be able to kick some booty (despite our current record) this weekend. Either way, it will be a blast, I haven’t tailgated for a Southern game is soooo long! Man I miss the days when you would walk up to a friends tent and they asked you if wanted a coke and when you said sure they would ask you what kind… long story- ah memories.
My dear friend Nan is going to be a Mama, really, really soon!! It is just over a month until little Leyton graces us with his presence and I am so excited! Can’t you tell with all of the “!”? This past Saturday I hosted a shower for Nan and the little guy out at her place. I am not sure that hosting a shower at the guest of honor’s house is really PC, but I wanted for everyone to not have to drive too far. Her husband is a saint and cleaned the house before everyone got there, I really do feel badly about that- sorry Jeremy. It was a great time, the ladies in attendance were such a hoot (Nan is blessed to work with such great people) and I had a ton of fun decorating and planning for it. I have attached a few pics for you to enjoy however, if you would like to see more check out my picasa site at http://picasaweb.google.com/kristen.perreault/NanSBabyShower#
