Tonight is THE Night

The Office and Grey's Anatomy are back in full swing tonight and I couldn't be more excited! It has been a long summer and I am ready to spend some time with the gang at Dunder-Mifflin. Especially Jim and Pam! Hooray
Yes, I realize that I am a complete TV geek and I'm ok with that. The other night Jeremy discovered my highlighed TV premiere week calendar on the coffee table and I thought I'd never hear the end of it. All in good fun - he just doesn't get my TV geek side.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming OR Another Rockin' Awesome Painting Created by Marissa

I went to Sips N' Strokes with my friends Christina and Sapna last night. Here is my latest creation. I taped it into a frame behind my desk at work to make it look more "fancy!"

Long Time, No Type

I'm sure my regular readers (all 2 of you!) have been wondering what I've been up to in my two week blogging absence. Things have been kind of crazy, but honestly I couldn't tell you what the majority of my time has been spent on.

I did take a trip to Nashville a few weeks ago to see the Commodores take on the Crimson Tide of Alabama. Alas, my hopes of a Commodore win were dashed, but we had a good time anyway.

Jeremy sporting his Bama attire...Booooo!!!

The whole fam went to the game - even Dad! For those of you who know my father, you know this is a HUGE deal. He is NOT a football fan. He stayed through 3 whole quarters - very impressive!

And then, last Friday night my good friend Sapna came over and we painted a masterpiece (if I do say so myself) together.
Here is the original painting that inspired us:
And this is my interpretation. I didn't paint the scripture on there because I have no idea how to paint letters with any real accuracy or so that they might be ledgible. Oh well!

This week the blogging absence has been due to the fact that I've been trapped in a classroom from 8:00 to 5:00 every day at Jefferson State Community College in preparation to take my Life & Health Insurance Exam. And yes, it is just as thrilling as it sounds. Needless to say, my days and nights have been spent studying. Thankfully, it wasn't all a waste. I passed my test today! Life insurance, anyone?

Green Zinnias

Here is the latest creation from my new hobby! Do you see the little blue boy peeking out from behind the purple flower? Everyone I've shown the picture to says it looks like a profile. It was completely by accident that it turned out that way. Sorry again (to my 2 or 3 readers) for the horrible photo quality. I was once again without a camera and had to resort to a cell phone.

Alabama vs. Western Carolina

Jeremy bought us tickets to see the Crimson Tide play and experience Nick Saban's Alabama coaching debut. We had a great time and the Tide won so everyone was happy! My Tigers won, too, but I have to say I was worried about them for a while. Football season is interesting for Jeremy and me, since he went to Alabama and I went to Auburn. As you can see I was a good girlfriend and wore my crimson to the game. I'll pull for Alabama as long as they're not playing Auburn.
Next weekend we are going to Nashville to see The Tide take on Vandy. As a Nashville native and huge Vandy fan, I've already told Jeremy I'll be sporting black and gold for that one - Go 'Dores! Here are some pictures from Saturday.
Jeremy and me ready for kick-off

The view from our seats

A friend of mine made me these super cute earrings to wear to the game. If you like them, let me know! She sells them for just $10 a pair, can make them in any teams colors, and the picture really doesn't do them justice.
