Iron Bowl 2012

Hey, guys.  Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and enjoyed their time with family and friends. As planned, we spent the day at home watching football and eating good.

We spent Saturday in Tuscaloosa. It was a beautiful, chilly day -- perfect for some Iron Bowl tailgating.

Believe it or not, I haven't been to a Bama tailgate/game all year (not counting Dallas).  This year I decided to take a little time off from the "gameday life" to focus on my studies. Saturday is pretty much my only real day off, and I couldn't afford to spend it anywhere but at home handling my business. (I learned that the hard way.  Last year I tried to "do it all" and paid for it big time.  Lesson learned.)

Anyhoo, Saturday's tailgate was fun as always -- family, friends, food, football, music, etc.  

This kid had a good time, too, with a little help from 
her animals, Doc McStuffins, and  the iPad.
And cake.  Lots of cake.

I got these two camera-shy kids to take a pic.  It's my mother- and father-in-law, the brains behind these awesome tailgates.  Good times!

Next weekend they'll be taking the show to Atlanta for the SEC Championship game.  I'm not sure if I'll make it since my final paper is due, but I know it's gonna be awesome.  Even better is the fact that a win on Saturday will secure Bama's spot in the national championship (which is in Miami this year)!  Fingers crossed!

...and just like that, my 10-day break is over. Back to real life in the morning.  It should be a pretty good week, though.  My students are doing a fun project, so it should be easy to reel them back in after their long break. 

Anyhoo, have a great week, y'all.  Be back soon.
