Football is in the Air...

Can you feel it? Football is in the air. I know that high school football has already begun, but I am talking about good ole College Football. I have to say, I LOVE football season. I love get togethers with friends, good food and just the excitement all around. It is fun to get up on Saturday mornings and look forward to some good football all day. I am usually not a huge football fan but when it comes to College Football and especially Auburn Football, I can't help but get excited. I know that all my friends aren't Auburn fans but I just love college football in general.

Auburn football kicks off a week from Saturday and I can just hear it now....WARRRR EAGLE HEY!!!

Movie Review

Last night my sister Sara and I had a movie night. Troy students were able to get in the movie for $1.00, they are going to start doing that every wednesday night. So of course Sara was able to get in for one dollar and I had to pay full price :(. When I went up to pay for my ticket she asked if I had this blue ticket that all the students had and I said no, I am not a student. She was like oh I'm sorry you look like a student, so I thanked her and then she said, that'll be eight dollars...ugh. We went and saw the Time Traveler's Wife. I have very mixed emotions about this movie. I LOVE Rachel McAdams, I have loved every movie she has been in, especially The Notebook. This movie was just a little out there, I mean time travel, really. Rachel McAdams was great but the movie was just ok. It was just a little slow and some of the time I wasn't sure what was going on. I am glad that I went to see it, but it's not a movie I would want to see again.

Lunch Date!

I had the most wonderful lunch date on Saturday with my old friend Jill. She and I went to Auburn together and were BEST friends. It has been about 4 years since we have seen each other. See, she lives in Virginia and I'm here in Alabama so it's been hard for us to get together. She was in Alabama b/c her brother and sister in law just had a baby. We were able to get in touch with each other and we met in Montgomery for lunch. We had such a great time catching up on each others lives. I have really missed her! Sometimes I wish we could go back to those good ole Auburn days, we had some really good times. We will not make it another four years before we see each other again!

Sister Weekend!

"Sisters by Birth, Friends by choice"
My sister Sara and I headed out Friday afternoon headed towards Birmingham. We went up there to visit our sister Anna and have a Sister weekend. We got there late Friday afternoon and just hung around the house. Stefanie Long an old family friend stopped by and it was so great to see her so we all visited for a few. Friday evening around 7 we went and ate at Chez Fonfon, a wonderful French restaurant.After our wonderful meal, our bellies were full and we were headed to see a movie. It started at 10:05 and we didn't get out till 12:30, and yes i know it is hard for you to believe, the people who know me, that I stayed up for the late movie. We saw Julie & Julia and it was a great movie, it made me want to go home and cook, well not really but it was a good idea anyway. It was a cute movie and if you haven't seen it you really should.

We woke up Saturday morning and went to Lowe's to look at tile and bathtubs for me because Rob and I are redoing our guest bathroom and then Anna had to get some heavy duty hooks to hang up her new mirror. After Lowe's we went to visit my grandmother, she had just gotten new carpet in her apartment and we had to help her get things put back in order since she can't see very well. After that visit we headed to pick up Cole at his parents house because they had just gotten back from the beach. Saturday night Sara met up with her old roommate Casey for dinner and Anna, Cole & I headed to dinner at this wonderful sushi restaurant called Jinsei, if you love sushi then this is the place to go, it was great!
Sunday I got up before anyone else and was talking to Rob on the phone when I heard a knock at Anna & Cole's door. They were getting their new tv delivered and Best Buy had said they would deliver it between 9 and 11 on Sunday, but the knock at the door was at 8:20 so they decided to deliver it early. I opened to door and the stinkin' alarm system went off. I am not used to anyone having an alarm system and I totally forgot they had one. I didn't know what to do, I could just picture in my head all these cop cars surrounding the house. Anna came running out to turn it off and then the alarm company called to make sure everything was ok. Needless to say, everyone in the house was awake now.
We had such a wonderful weekend. I always love when I get to spend some time with my sisters. I hope we do it again very soon. I hope that everyone who reads my blog had a great weekend as well.

Boy's Weekend

This past weekend our friend Aaron was in town. He lived next to Rob when they first moved to Troy and were in school here. He is in the Navy now and he was back in the States for a little bit. Usually when he comes back we all have a get together. This year we had it here in Troy at our house. All the guys came in town and we grilled out pork tenderloin and had twiced baked potatoes and baked beans. The only girls were me and one of the guy's wife, it is always fun for me to see Rob having a good time with his friends. We had a good weekend with some good friends. Here is a picture of the guys:
