Iron Bowl 2011


We usually don't tailgate when the Iron Bowl is in Auburn, but this year we were there!  My in-laws got up a charter bus and took the tailgating party to the Plains.  We had a great time!

All the Auburn fans I encountered were super cool, too.  They danced with us, offered their clean RV potty when they noticed a certain toddler refused to have anything to do with the porta-potty (she is her mother's child), and were genuinely kind to us on the trolley ride over to the stadium.  I know that none of this seems like a big deal, but I wasn't sure how they'd feel about this big bus of Bama fans coming up to their place and throwing up the best tailgate EVER. :-)   



I didn't do so hot with pics this year (my camera is missing lots of faces!), but I did manage to get a couple of us as a family.





My in-laws, the masterminds behind this whole operation.  I found this pic on my camera once I got home.  I'm not sure who got these two to take a pic, but THANK YOU!  These two kids shy away from the camera, so this is really special. :-)






My sister-in-law and I talked about how two years ago our little M was in her pack 'n play during tailgates.  Then last year we had a gate for her to play in.  This year she's a big girl and played with her toys and books without having to be confined. :-)  


I've sat at the Iron Bowl game in rainy weather (nine months pregnant, I should add) and super cold weather (last year).  This year the weather was PERFECT (high 60s)!

The two bands came together in honor of the victims of April tornadoes. I still tear up when I think about those days.  I thought the performance was a great touch.



We had a great Iron Bowl tailgate and a sweet Thanksgiving a couple of days earlier.  We spent the day at DK's granny's where my mom and grandma came over as well.

Tomorrow starts a super busy couple of weeks for me.  I'm wrapping up my semester in grad school (lots and lots and lots and lots of work to do).  If my sanity and I make it through this crazy week, I'll be heading to NYC for a fun work trip.  Then a birthday party for M!

I love that the Christmas season is officially here.  This time of year is my favorite for many reasons.  The holiday spirit in the air is just magical, and my Pandora Christmas stations are comforting and joyful.  LOVE!

Have a great week, everybody!
