Life Is Good

writeroval-1-1 Once again it's time for Sunday Favorites, hosted by Chari at Happy to Design.  This is one of those memes that I really ought to participate in every week, because Chari has made it so easy for us.  All you have to do is repost one of your favorite posts from the past.  And Chari even gives directions for doing just that.

This week, in honor of the Razorbacks' 44-23 victory over Auburn yesterday in Fayetteville, I have decided to share my post from exactly one year ago.  A year ago Tommy Tuberville was coaching Auburn.  This year he was predicting a three-touchdown Tiger victory.  Maybe he needs to rethink that.

Ironically, this year our weekend was also about football and weddings and Auburn and Arkansas.  Yesterday afternoon as the game was winding down in Fayetteville, we were headed to Auburn for the wedding of Ralph's and Wanda's son Braxton.

So life really is about more than football, and it's all good!

A Sunday Favorite

It just doesn't get much better than this--a football weekend in the South. Add to that a Friday night party for Ben and Claire, and you have a perfect weekend.
Friday night some of Ben's high school friends and their parents plus Allen and Areta hosted a shower complete with Southern comfort food--chicken fingers, grits, blackeyed peas, greens, biscuits and homemade ice cream with pound cake. Yummmmm. Claire's mom Marie and sister Britton were able to be here, and we enjoyed hanging out and tweaking "The Lists."
Saturday morning bright and early, LBeau and I headed to Auburn with the red F-150 loaded with grills, tables, tailgate chairs and food to set up for the Alabama Chapter of the Arkansas Alumni Association Tailgate Party. We've been doing this for at least 10 years at either Auburn or Tuscaloosa, cooking burgers and dogs for all Hog fans who stop by. The money we raise goes to our chapter scholarship fund.
Top off the weekend with a 25-22 Razorback win over Auburn, and life is good.

Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend. I love the football season and watch all of the games. I just wish the Cardinals would get their act in gear this year, sure not a repeat of last year so far. Hugs, Marty

We were in Fayetteville but opted to stay at Emily's with the babies. The day started out cold, windy and dreary. It ended up a beautiful fall day...crisp but sunny...and the win over Auburn was awesome! Sorry you missed seeing it in could have had our tickets. Congrats on the baby girl. I spent this afternoon making Kate two new tutus for Halloween. She couldn't decide on colors, so what was a grandmother to do? I'm just thrilled that she had decided to like them all over again. Now, if she would just decide to wear those 300 or so hair bows that I have made!
