1. Yay for college football! Both Texas Tech & Texas came out on top in their games on Saturday!! We had to pass on our free tickets to the Texas game since Dave’s back won’t cooperate 😦

Get your guns up & or horns up for the next game this Saturday!!

2. Dave started early on Monday smoking beef ribs….one of his favorite things to do.

3. Scarlett L-O-V-E-S the backyard & relaxing under the trees!

4. Getting the table top ready for dinner with Dave!

It’s Time

It’s been a long 8 months and we’re so excited for this college football season to begin! You can feel the spirit in the air….the anticipation of watching your favorite team take the field to give us, the fans, what we’re dying to have…a WIN, one game at a time.

As we move into another football season, I have to say my emotions are in an interesting place. Since about mid-college I’ve had strong negative emotions towards the Texas Longhorns…..not sure if it’s the loud obnoxious fans (I totally know that all teams have them) or the fact that they seem to always have the cream of the crop players over my Red Raiders. These emotions have caused several ugly arguments between Dave and I & even with myself and close friends. Sometime last season, I started to realize that I need to let these negative emotions go so I can enjoy the many seasons ahead with my husband….and not allow the passion that I have for my college football team to cause a true divide in my head, heart & household.

So it’s time people. Time to enjoy the positivity that college football brings. Now, you won’t see me wearing burnt orange or hear me singing the Texas Fight song, however, I have found a tiny spot in my heart (for the love of my husband and in-laws ) for the Texas Longhorns. (Shhhh! Now don’t tell my dad…he needs to hear this from me face to face….he won’t see this bc he has no clue what a blog is).

Best of luck to the Texas Tech Red Raiders (my alma-mater) & of course to the Texas Longhorns (please keep our home a happy one!)

The only place there is a divide is here on this flag:
