Oh What a Night

Monday, October 10, 2011

Happy Happy Monday friends! Did you all have a fabulous weekend? They never seem to last nearly long enough, do they? Ours was jam packed as usual, with a quick, but fun trip to Knoxville. Here's the jist:
Friday night, we rolled into town and headed straight to Bev's for pumpkin painting...take me back to kid land, and we had a BLAST!

The  before...
 and the after! Hello chevron AKA Charlie Brown
The boys headed out for late night fun and I know Jeff enjoyed a "real" night out with drinks and guy time--although I think someone was suffering a bit the next morning due to his 4AM bedtime (haha).

Saturday morning, we got up and got everything ready to head to our parking spot to setup the tailgate. The boys were so sweet to set up everything while Meg and I got to town on the food spread and then friends started parading in...a beautiful day spent with great friends with ideal football weather. Unfortunately, let's put it this way...the highlight of the game for me was my favorite game day dog and dippin dots as we lost to the GA Bulldogs--a sad day in the life of a Volunteer fan. Boo =(

Early tailgating
 Me and the hubs
 Rob, Meg, and Giant Christian (his attempt at trying to look tall)
 Jules and Jon...the next to be married!!
Cannot wait for their engagement party coming up in a few weeks
 and the other newlyweds...Jo and Rhett
 Ashley, Lauren, and Me
 Me and Cary--love him so!
 Doesn't get any better than this glorious sight!
 The infamous running through the "T"
 Hilarious--notice the 2nd down, and 56 yards? Yeah, it got even worse
for GA on that drive...4th and 57--that has to be a record
Sunday, we met up with Jeff's mom for coffee so we could catch-up and have some family time before we met up for brunch with Jay, Ashley, and Sheila to finalize our will documents...told you we're getting old, huh? However, SO necessary since we're expanding the family and felt good to get this all settled. Then it was home for us where we got to work... Jeff replacing lights, me doing laundry and cooking dinner, and then both of us working to get some more art on the walls...cannot wait to show it off to you!

Back to reality this morning, although I did get to hear a sweet little noise at my 17 week appointment this morning--the bambino's heartbeat going strong at 145 bpm! Only 8 more days until we find out the gender...countdown is on!


  1. Such a fun weekend! We enjoyed football and friends at the TX/ou game. Ours was the same fate...fierce rivalry and we were on the losing end this year! It's still fun though. :) Love your pumpkin!
