36-0 The Streak Has Ended!

Roll Tide!! Last night was one of the most fun nights of my life. Alabama beat our in state rival, Auburn, 36-0! There was a huge party in Bryant-Denny stadium after the game! The atmosphere was electric. If you live in Alabama and have never been to a game, you must go to at least one in your lifetime. There is nothing like it.

Happy Thanksgiving and Roll Tide!

I'm a day late posting our Happy Thanksgiving wishes to everyone, but it's because we were having a great time with family. The weekend before Thanksgiving, Lee, Regina, Tyler, and Brianne stayed the weekend with us. The weather was great, and we were able to play outside for a long time on Saturday. We made pictures and Tyler drove Bo around on the golf cart.

Bo and I were on vacation all week, and we have been working in the yard. Boy have I been sore! I could definitely tell that I sit at a desk everyday!

On Wednesday night, Tim, Michele, Nicholas, and Anna Kay spent the night with us and spent part of today with us too! We played and played and just had a good ole' time. Thursday, we ate waaaayyy too much, but the food was just too good to pass up. Today my sister and I helped my parents decorate their Christmas tree. It's hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and since we will be heading to Tuscaloosa bright and early tomorrow morning for the Iron Bowl, I will close with a big Roll Tide!

Enjoy a few pics from the week!

Blog Giveaway!

Every once in a while someone will have a giveaway on their blog. Well, I was reading one tonight that you should really check out. It's in celebration of her 100th post on her blog. Check out PeepToePumpsandPearls.

The Big 4-0!

Yes, today I turned 40! Can you believe it? It doesn't seem possible.

The celebration started on Friday when my boss kicked me out of my office early in the afternoon so that he and my co-workers could decorate my office. None of them make into the office early enough to decorate before I get there, so they had to get a jump on it.

On Saturday, we celebrated with my parents, sisters, and nieces. My mom cooked a delicious lunch, and we had cake and ice cream for dessert, of course. It was great to have most of my immediate family together at once (My bro-in-law wasn't able to make it.).

Today, I began the day by opening gifts from my sweet hubby and several family members. Then I arrived at work to an office brimming with red, white, and UofA crepe paper streamers (Thanks, Renee'). I was expecting plenty of black and Over the Hill, but, thanks to Halloween, there were no black streamers to be found in town. My co-workers took me to lunch, and then finished the day with Chocolate Lasagna. If you've never heard of it, you are not alone. I hear this was a dessert served at Olive Garden at one time. It consists of thin layers of chocolate cake with rich, delicious cream cheese icing between and on top with chunks of chocolate mixed in. Yummmm! Thanks to Marcia for making such a wonderful dessert.

Tonight, my hubby surprised me with something sparkly and then cooked dinner. Did I mention how great my hubby is?

What a day it was. It was certainly something to remember, and I hope to have many more just like it!

Enjoy the pics!

Oh, look at this office!

They even put streamers on my computer monitor!

I have a lot of cleaning up to do tomorrow.
