Let the Games Begin

Tonight is the first college football game of the season, and not surprisingly it is SEC game because we have the best conference. ESPN is showcasing some great football tonight - MSU vs LSU. As many of you know MSU is my football team and I know we aren't the great team like Auburn but they are my team - deal with it! I am looking foward to watching football on Saturdays and having my dear hubby at home. Which this also allows me to go places on Saturday without kids because I know he will be at home.

This year we have added a little fun into the season. Since my dear hubby cannot seem to get enough fantasy sports, he has added fantasy football to his college pickem as well. He got a jump on Jeff S. on setting up the pickem in which they have to type in the password goauburn - fun. Well, he would not let me in the pickem with the guys, but he set one up for the our dear family. Yes it is girls vs guy, and yes I said girls - the girls are going to pickem. Let the fun begin.

Hail State (Fight Song)

Maroon and White (Alma Mater)

In the heart of Mississippi

Made by none but God's own hands

Stately in her nat'ral splendor

Our Alma Mater proudly stands.

State College of Mississippi,Fondest mem'ries cling to thee.

Life shall hoard thy spirit ever,

Loyal sons we'll always be.

Chorus:Maroon and White! Maroon and White!

Of thee with joy we sing.

Thy colors bright, our souls delight,

With praise our voices ring.

Tho' our life some pow'r may vanquish,

Loyalty can't be o'er run;

Honors true on thee we lavish

Until the setting of the sun;

Live Maroon and White for ever,

Ne'er can evil mar thy fame,Nothing us from thee can sever,

Alma Mater we acclaim.

To My Fantasy "insert sport of the season" Widows

I think this is absolutely hilarious. Please read "Fantasy Land" first before "From the Commissioner". I thought we were suppose to be our dear hubby's fantasy!

A New Look

With school starting back and other new things popping up, I thought I would update the look of my blog. I read several other blogs and see all these cute designs, but most of those come with a price. In our effort to save a little money here and there, I kinda did it myself. You can get some free ones on the internet but I just didn't care for too many of them. So here it is, I like it. Let me know what you think.

On a another note we have started school back and soon we will be back into all our activities, except gymnastics. We have decided to take the year off. But we are looking forward to a good year in school.

all's fun till the police show up.

Last night we had our Connect Group Social at our home. We had 56 people, yes, 56 people in our home. Everyone had a great time eating pizza and desserts and watching the movie. I cannot believe we had that many people in which we think about half of them were children. When we surveyed the damage after everyone left, I think we may have pizza boxes that stood about 4 ft tall. Inventory of items left - lawn chairs, socks, pacifier, sunscreen, sweatshirt, parachute toy soldier, and one child - oops sorry Hailey was suppose to stay. We did have to call the socializing to an end when the police showed up, but thankful it was not for our party. There was a burglar on the loose and the cops were out with the dogs trying to find him. The police wanted to make sure our people got to their cars safely. So thankfully no one called them on us.

Here is another item of business. We have these flowers blooming in our backyard. The blooms are almost the size of dinner plates. Will someone please enlighten on what kind of flower this is?
