Football Football!!

I am over this mommy!!!
I am suffering from football overload and it is still early in the season!! Friday night, we went to the local high school football game which was very exciting. It was the two rival teams from our hometown and my high school pulled out the win in 3 overtimes!! Saturday, we went to a friend's house to watch Ohio State and then UT/ Florida with them. Later, we came home and watched UK while listening to MTSU on the laptop. During the Titans game today, I had to lay down and take a nap with Bailey..Too much for me!! We found out some GREAT news this weekend! Friends of ours have been trying to have a baby for a while and they showed us a picture when we got to their house. It was a picture of an ultrasound which made me so happy and then she said there are THREE!!! Triplets!!!! I couldn't believe it! We are so happy for them and it really couldn't happen to two better people! So.. if you are reading this blog, please take a moment and say a quick prayer for them for a healthy pregnancy and three healthy babies!! OMG- I can't wait!!! I didn't take any Bailey pictures this week but here are a few of me playing dressup with some of her new fall clothes.

New Hobby

Two posts in one day!!! That is a record for me but it's because I am so behind from last week. Sorry family, this is a post with no bailey pictures! We went to the MTSU game yesterday but I forgot my camera. Bailey did so well. She only took a 20 minute nap all day and made it all the way through the game. We didn't leave until 9. We all slept until 8:30 this morning and were late for church!! So, I have a new hobby and it is sewing! If you know me, you know this is strictly out of my comfort zone but I am having a blast. It is helping me with my patience issues. Here is my first dress. Bailey will probably only wear it one time before it tears into pieces but that's ok. It's so much fun!

Chattanooga Weekend

We decided to take a little weekend trip to Chattanooga for Labor Day. I had not been there since I was little so we thought it wouls be a great place to take Bailey. We arrived Saturday in time for lunch downtown and checked in at the hotel to watch the UK game. Sunday, we went to the Aquarium which Bailey loved! Her little finger was pointing all through the place at the fish! It's so much fun to see things through the eyes of your child. We then walked around downtown for a while, drove around to see Ruby Falls and Rock City, and then went to the hotel for a rest before dinner. After dinner, we went to the park which was beautiful. Ben said I didn't dress Bailey right for the fountains but she had to dress up for dinner ;). All in all, it was a great trip but I will say that I was a little disappointed at the lack of stuff to do. I know I am biased for Pigeon Forge but, besides going to the beach, there is nothing like it. You never run out of things to do there. If you didn't know, Ben's job is advertising Supervisor for the city of Pigeon Forge. I may just be a little bitter because I couldn't find a good mall in Chattanooga but I will take Pigeon Forge anyday over Chattanooga!!

This was us at the game last year

And now..what a difference a year makes!
Fall is here..well kind of! We went to the first football game of the season last night. Ben and I both graduated from Middle Tennessee State University and we love to support the team as alumni and new Althletic Association members. I received my Bachelors from there and Ben received his Bachelors and MBA from there. Last year, Bailey went to all the games with us and it was so easy. She was in her Baby Bjorn the whole time and sat there. Well, this year she is walking so I was a little nervous. She did great! The first time everyone jumped up and screamed she got a little upset but by the end , she was giving her Daddy high fives! She fell asleep for about 20 minutes and woke up ready to go! She didn't get in bed until 10:30 last night. She slept in a little this morning and was ready to go! Unfortunately, we lost 24-17 but it was a great game to watch! We are headed to Chattanooga this weekend for a short little family vaca, just the three of us. Can't wait!!

Lake Day!!

Ben's parents decided to rent a pontoon boat Saturday. We were excited because Bailey has never been to the lake. I am not a huge fan of the lake. I like clean swimming pool water but I am always up for spending time with the family. Bailey didn't like the life vest at first but once we got rolling in the boat, she loved it! She just watched the water for awhile. We let her get in the lake for a little bit which she liked...for a little bit :). She also got to help granddad drive the boat. She loved the fact that G brought sandwiches and she loved the Cheetos. Aunt Abigail had to laugh at our little fat girl with her hand in the Cheetos bag! All in all, it was a great day. We left the lake to go to my dad's for a cookout. Bailey ran until her little legs couldn't run anymore with my nephew Ethan. Needless to say, we all three slept great Saturday night! We are so blessed to live close to both sides of the family. I want Bailey to grow up knowing how important family is. Lake pics to come soon!
