College Gameday Makes me Emotional!!

No, it wasn't Lee Corso stating that the Aggies are no good that made me emotional. It was another heart warming story about a college football player and his family! I think I tear up every chance I get to see this show! I also tear up because I miss fall in Amarillo and watching football with Dad. He always has colorful commentary for every game!!!!!

I will now let you take a look at my favorite man on College Gameday. I have a special place in my heart for cutie Kirk Herbstreit since he is a Buckeye!!

So I think I need to head to the nearest Walgreens or CVS for the product shown above! The answer for why I need such a random product should be evident after you read my story below!

I usually don't have trouble going to sleep with the BLARING tv one floor below me, but for some reason I just couldn't do it last night. Every night I usually fall asleep easily to the interviews that Jay Leno is conducting on the Tonight Show. I always know Jay Leno's guests without ever having to turn on my own tv. FYI: I think Charlize Theron was on last night. Most people would have a rational discussion with their neighbor about the excessive volume on their tv, but I just can't do it. The biggest reason I can't do this is that the tv belongs to my neighbor, Vivian. Ms. Vivian is an 80 year old woman with beautiful soft, white hair who drives a very sha-sha white Jaguar. She is sweet as can be, but also deaf as can be!! I think she falls asleep to the Tonight Show every night even though the volume is blaring. The most frustrating part of it all is that sometimes I will think she has gone to bed because it suddenly becomes dead silent, but then 30 seconds later the tv comes back on at full blast! I decided that her neighbor on the other side must have placed a Clapper on her tv. When they think she has fallen asleep, they clap hard and miraculously the tv turns off!! I can't take credit for this Clapper idea as I saw it in the hilarious movie Duplex. I guess Ms. Vivian will never be as bad as the little old lady in that movie!

And if for some reason Ms. Vivian reads my blog, I am sorry for any disrespect. I love your soft, white hair, and I totally want the same kind of hair when I get old!! I'm still off to buy that Clapper though!!!

It's Fair Time!!

So I have not been to the fair in years, but I was so sad that I did not get to go to the State Fair of Texas last year! I have actually never been to the State Fair, so it bummed me out to live so close and not get to go!! My family figured out that Texans took their fairs seriously when we moved to Amarillo and got a day off of school for "Fair Day!" Crazy stuff!! We usually did not attend the Tri-State Fair, but I always loved when it arrived in Amarillo because it meant that the weather was getting perfect!!

So Big Tex, I will be seeing you sometime within the next month....even if I have to go to the State Fair by myself!!

Engagement Party Fun Times!!

I am SO sorry for such late post on the engagement party of Manda and Kent!! I had a wonderful time in Cameron, TX!! It was so great to meet the Morgan family and get to see Manda's parents again! I can tell that Manda is marrying into such a precious family! They have to be spectacular since they have an extreme love for the Andy Griffith Show!!

Emily, Brad, Penny Lane, and I had a great roadtrip down to Cameron! The Garmin led us an interesting way down to Cameron, but at least there was no traffic! We might have gone a full 45 minutes without seeing another car.

The Morgans have the most incredible backyard that contains a putt putt course, castle, and fun town with storefronts. There is even a corner focused on the Andy Griffith Show!! This backyard deserves a full hour time slot on HGTV.

Here are some pics from the fun party! I unfortunately did not get a pic with both Manda and Kent. Also, sorry for the bad lighting from my not so good flash!
