Go Mississippi State Bulldogs!

Ike and I had not planned to go to the game last Saturday. We don't have season tickets since we never know what Ike's schedule will be like, it would have been a waste. Friday afternoon Ike calls and ask if I wanted to go to the game, and since I am really excited about football this year I said YES!! His wonderful boss and her husband gave us 2 tickets! We were so excited. So of course I needed a new outfit, Ike took me to get that Friday night which was alot of fun! Then Saturday we headed over early to tailgate with the Barnette's! Good food and lots of fun! OUR bulldogs pulled out a win! We could not be more proud! :) And our seats were awesome. They were close, padded, chair backs...could not ask for more!

Our bedroom

I am continuing with the tours Kelly's Korner is hosting, and this week is Master bedrooms. If you visited last week and saw our living room... well our bedroom is even smaller, but I love it especially the colors. . We never have found anything the right size and colors for above our bed

Who's ready for FALL!?

Anyone who knows me, knows this time of the year is bitter sweet for me. I love fall as much as the next person, but I strongly dislike winter. Ike and I have been discussing our next move and anytime a northern state is mentioned Ike says, "You don't do well in cold weather." Translation: you complain. True statement, but we will see. I like to be able to go outside and soak up the sun, and get off work in the daylight. So I know what you are thinking, why are you even thinking of winter? I have no idea why my mind almost skips fall and jumps to winter, I am not a pessimist. A few things I like about winter...sweatshirts, chili, not having to mow the grass every week, lower power bill, and I am sure there is more. Ok that was therapeutic. So for now...we are ready for fall! We have started the decorating !Look who else is ready for fall...He has the proper clothing.Buster LOVES his sweaters! He will go crazy if you mention it and slips his head right in. He shares his mom's view of winter. And the picture below is for your enjoyment! :) Open up wide!
**Note that he has crawled between me and the computer once again, and is yawning right in my face. Think he is ready for bed?? He does not like Ike's late studying either, but we are so proud of him!

Show us your life- Living rooms

Kelly's Korner is doing house tours and I thought it would be fun to join in. Especially since we may not be in this house next year and I would like to remember our first home! So here it is our little living room! I like this room alot!

We never found anything for that wall.

Big Brother Party!

For the finale of Big Brother we all got together to watch. We were all pleased with the results. I mean of course we preferred Lane or Britney win but Hayden would do! It was fun to all watch together! I was actually sad that it was over. I am not sure why that show is so entertaining!
Big Brother party! Me and Ike...great hair, I know!

Amanda had check offs the next day so we had to be her patients!Are they not so cute!!!
Buster was of course so excited to see Mackenzie!

Not much to report

It has not been a very exciting week at our house. I mentioned that Ike was sick last weekend, which only got worse. He went the doctor but she did not think he needed an antibiotic. He strongly disagrees, and I have to agree with him. This week I came down with what I am sure is a sinus infection! So we have both been moaning and complaining all week! :) THEN our bulldogs didn't quite make the cut last night, we won't talk about that! Then we have been watching big brother this season and It made me cry on Tuesday. How ridiculous is that?? not a great week. HA! Enough of the complaining!

On a brighter note...I forgot to blog about Buster's recent skin rash. (He's our baby, remember) A few weeks ago we noticed his hair was coming out in spots and he had little bumps all over him. Turns out it was a fungal/viral thing that dogs can get from grass. We had antibiotics for him and special soap, and he is looking a 100 times better. And we learned that Buster much prefers a shower to a bath! We had to leave the soap on him for 10 min, that can be challenging.

Other than that nothing to report really. School is going good for Ike, in fact he is hard at work now (Friday night, boo!), and it looks like he has a long weekend ahead of him! I am so proud of how hard he works!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Friends and football...

Last week I was in Denver all week for a work conference. While I was there I got to visit with my friend Sarah! Sarah and I met when we were interns for a summer in Memphis! It was nice to be able to catch up! The last time I saw her we were both still in college and single. Now we are both married and she is expecting a baby! It is funny how conversations change!
Then I got home Friday night to my sick husband! Bless his heart, Ike catches everything! He was a trooper though. Because Saturday was a big season kicked off! We tailgated with 2 of my college roommates and their families! I have not always been such a huge sports fan but I am starting to actually enjoy football! Ike and I are both Mississippi State Alumni! (Actually Ike is still a student there). So we both love our Bulldogs, and they made us proud Saturday! Maybe this will be a better season for us!

Me and 2 of my #7 girls! and our newest member Walt!Jen and WarrenThe CarpentersSam and Candace stopped by to visit!
Ready for the White out game!!
This was Warren's first SEC football game! I think he liked it, and the cowbell!!
