Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!

Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

It Was Worth a Shot...

In case you didn't know it...

I have a huge Auburn Tigers fan living at my house.




She seriously intends to go to college there...
"In just twelve more years, you know, Momma."
(gulp!)
I'm seriously wondering if I need to go on and move to the state of Alabama now, just to establish in-state residency.

In an effort to perhaps offer another alternative, we stopped at Vanderbilt on our way home from Camp Maggie-Hada this week.  
After all, just like Auburn, Vandy runs in the family.
And surely a mother and a grandmother trump one beloved uncle, right?!?


 We wandered around the campus and read about Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt ("Oh!!!  So THAT'S why they are called the Commodores!" she exclaimed after reading one of the historical markers), took a few pictures, and visited the bookstore where we found a "fabulous" pink tote bag.


But even the fabulous pink tote bag doesn't trump all things orange and blue.

As we headed out of town I was told that "Vanderbilt is nice and it might be ok for me.  But Auburn is definitely still my favorite.  OK, Momma?"

Funny. We don't live too far from there. And even though we have always been GA fans it hasn't stopped all these AU fans from trying to convert us since we moved here 6 years ago. They are die hard!
