football is off to a great start!

My husband and I have lots of reasons to celebrate this Labor Day weekend! All of our teams won– even Furman! Washington and Lee didn’t play, but we’ll be sure to post their very exciting highlights throughout their football season.*
(* kidding)
Louisiana Tech (my alma mater) beat Mississippi State 22-14 in Ruston! The bulldogs vs. the bulldogs! It was the first time that Tech hosted an SEC team at home and the first time they’ve beaten an SEC team since 1999. Geaux Dawgs!

The University of South Carolina (my grad school alma mater) shut out NC State 34-0 at home on Thursday night. We’re looking forward to more exciting games this season as our schedule gets tougher. Todd is headed to Nashville on Thursday morning to watch the Gamecocks take on Vanderbilt. Go Cocks!

And maybe most importantly, Clemson lost. The ACC pretty much fell flat on their faces yesterday and our house couldn’t be happier. The No. 9 ranked team fell to No. 24, Alabama at the Georgia Dome. I’m not an Alabama fan, but I was yesterday. My cousin and her husband are big Alabama fans and I know they were happy. The final score was 34-10. Roll Tide!

so cute

While I don’t have any plans to cut my hair, I’m just smitten with Reese’s haircut and adorable dress. She always looks so happy!

oh yeah….

How could I forget? It’s time for Carolina football!
Todd and I are walking to the stadium from our house. I’m leaving work at 2:00 and I’m so excited to be in the midst of Gamecock fever.
Let’s hope we leave and don’t look like this:

trick or treat

I always find that my favorite Halloween goodies are in Pottery Barn Kids. The new catalog came yesterday and I’m finally going to break down and order the trick or treat basket with the monogrammed liner. It’s so cute! I wanted it last year and never ordered it. This year we’ll have real trick-or-treaters and we need a cute basket!

I’m also pretty sure that I need to locate those black and white lollipops!
Now, how cute are these costumes? I have to admit that they make me a little hungry! I think they’re a little small for Todd and me to wear, but we’ll keep it in mind in case we run out of options.

And the banana! She looks so happy to be dressed like an Organic Chiquita!
