This Weekend


This weekend I…

Listened: the Auburn University Marching Band, One Direction, and my girls’ laughter

Watched: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (whomp whomp. not my favorite.), the Auburn University spring football practice game (aka A-Day for all you non-footballers)

Ate: Chocolate chip pancakes at IHOP (had a craving!), a yummy football stadium pretzel (seriously though….the ones at Jordan-Hare Stadium are goooood), and Street Cafe for Sunday lunch (best quick service, hibachi food in Montgomery)

Smelled: Fresh cut grass, flowers blooming in Auburn, and my husband’s deodorant (yeah, I borrow it sometimes…so?)

Apparently the internet meme above is floating around on some blogs, so I thought I’d give it a try (thanks to Busy Bee Lauren for the inspiration).

Seems to me like our weekends have been full of adventure lately, and this weekend was no exception. We took the girls to their first A-Day game, which is a glorified scrimmage available for public viewing by my alma mater’s football team. We sat in the shade for the game’s entirety, which made it a very enjoyable experience. Our family walked around the campus for a bit after the game, but before long it was time to head home (or experience the inevitable meltdown, which was always on the verge of happening this weekend). I ran into a few of my old band mates and their kids (which is so strange and makes me feel much older than I am!), and took me back to my freshman year when we were the ones in the uniforms playing our hearts out or learning pom routines for the stands. It was great to be back in Auburn, if only for a little while.

So this is random, but I just realized the other day that my blog’s 1 year anniversary is coming up this Saturday! I can’t believe it’s been a year since I started this thing. I was thinking of doing something special at the end of the week (like maybe a giveaway?), but I want to know what you think. I know I have a lot of “ghost readers” out there who don’t comment, but would you comment for a giveaway? What would you like to see me giveaway? I would love to hear your thoughts, and, as always, thanks for reading!
