Roll Tide????

I think not. LSU 24 Bama 21.....

This was one of those weekends that I needed to come to work to rest! I love those but the weekend just flies by. We started off Friday night with company from Texas. Our friend Kevin & his son Max were in town for the game so they came to our house for dinner. We've had our first cold snap so Dean cooked a big gumbo! What's really weird about this weekend is that as busy as we were we didn't eat out once! That NEEEVVVVEEEERRRR happens.

Saturday was game day. LSU vs. Bama. This is always a huge game but now especially since Saban took the Bama job. The weather was going to be good so we decided to tailgate. We left about 9:30. It was BEAUTIFUL!!! In the 60's all day & sunny. Just about perfect weather. Our plan was to go from tailgate to tailgate visiting friends all over campus. We started out at D-Mill's (that would be short for David Miller). We met David back when he played baseball for LSU. 
David & his wife Jessica & Dean & I. This reminds me that I must take a picture of my ADORABLE shirt that I bought Friday.  My cup of blueberry lemonade is blocking it! Trust me when I say I was all blinged out!

After a stop at Deep South Tigers we moved on to our "fancy friends" with their chandelier hanging from their tent.
 How cute is this??? She made it from an old light fixture, spray paint, Christmas ornaments & the feathers were an LSU wreath that was hanging on the door of her LSU room at home. It fit perfectly. We had Mimosa's here. Ole Miss just thinks they're the fancy tailgaters!!

We stopped at another friends tailgate party to say hey & found this guy.
I'm guessing the majority of you don't know who that is. It's me with Gary Sheffield. If you're a Major League Baseball fan you know him. He was in town for a baseball banquet that was held Friday night. He & his wife were both really nice. We chatted for a bit & then moved on to the next party!

We went to my work friends party. We didn't get to hang out with them for very long because it was getting close to game time & they all needed to go into the stadium.
This is Stan & Renee & Dean & I. Again, the drink is covering my really cute shirt! After this we had to make the trek back to our car so we could get home for kick off. Living where we live is ideal for game day tailgating! We're 3 miles from the stadium so we didn't miss a play.

Scott, Lydia & Logan came over to watch the game with us. Logan never stops moving.
It's virtually impossible to get a good picture of him! He was all decked out in his LSU shirt & hat.
Logan loves his lawnmower. Notice the sippy cup of ice tea. He pushed the mower all over the house with the cup like that. It fell off a couple of times & he immediately put it back on the mower & took off. HAHA!

At one point we looked up to find him like this.
I've said before he's a daredevil. After the game, which by the way, LSU WON!!! Woo Hoo!! We did not see that coming. For those of you that don't know, Les Miles is a moron. Yet, he continues to win despite that fact. Shocking. Anyway, after the game Scott & Lydia went to dinner for their anniversary & Dean & I kept Logan.

Here we are trying to get him to look at the camera. Epic fail.
  Speaking of epic fail, do you see those mums??? I CANNOT keep them alive. I don't understand.
FINALLY! He's looking at me but no smile. I guess I can't be too picky. We had so much fun with him. He kept us laughing all night!

Sunday, my neighbor had what she called "Holiday Market at The Mitchell's". The idea was to help us with our shopping since we're all going to Disney the week before Christmas. Things got a tad bit out of hand & there ended up being 9 "vendors" there & about 80 "invites" went out to people in the subdivision. Thankfully, all of those people didn't show up! There was a nice turnout & I was able to pick up a few cute gifts, drink a little wine & eat a few snacks! It made for a very nice afternoon.

So, now it's Monday & I MUST finish those doves....
