In Case You Couldn't See it Before...

This is what's across the street from my house right now! Craziness!

Disturbing My Peace

Our neighbors across the street have all of this in their front yard for Halloween...

If you can't see, from left to right there is a horse-drawn hearse being driven by the Grim Reaper, a haunted castle and on the far right there is a creepy looking organ being played by a deranged looking man. As I type, I can hear the "organ music" that it plays. It is loud enough to hear in our living room every night.

These neighbors are extreme holiday decorators and while I admire their spirit I do not love the creepy music that I am subjected to every night.

Happy Halloween. Boo.

Home Sweet Home

I took these pictures of the old train bridge in downtown Northport the other day and was pleasantly surprised with how they turned out...

Good Ol' Rocky Top??

J and I headed up to Knoxville to see the Tide play this weekend. As a lifelong Vol-hater this is one of the few games where I really, really want Alabama to win. We stayed with my brother-in-law at his cabin in Pigeon Forge and had a super great time.

Not a bad view, huh?

The final score - it did not stay on the scoreboard long!

The view from the top...the very top!

Some of the Volunteer Navy - pretty cool, I have to admit

I Still Can't Believe It!

Yes, I'm an Auburn alum. Yes, I love the Tigers. Yes, I still love them even though they're having some tough days lately. Yes, I bleed orange and blue. Yes, I am married to an Alabama fan, but that in no way dampens my enthusiam for the Auburn Tigers!

That being said, I grew up in Nashville and, thanks to my mom, have been a Vandy fan as long as I can remember. I love the 'Dores and cheer them on anytime I get the chance. Whenever Auburn and Vandy meet my heart feels torn between the two. Thank goodness they don't play each other every football season. I have never cheered against Auburn on any of these occassions until Saturday. Always the underdog, Vandy had the chance to go 5-0 for the first time in 50+ years and I had to do my part in cheering them on. The game was amazing. The fans were loud. And the outcome was fantastic!! I'm sad that it was Auburn that they had to beat, but I am so happy for Vandy I almost don't care.

This article summarizes my feelings much better than I can. I get a little misty-eyed reading it.

Who ya with??? VU! Go 'Dores!!

Happy Honeymoon!!

Here are a few pictures from our honeymoon cruise to Progreso and Cozumel, Mexico. We had the best time. I highly recommend a cruise - especially if you like to eat as much as I do. You will not go hungry on a cruise. There is always food to eat and lots to do, too!

Getting our marriage license in Nashville. Don't you love the fancy arch?
Our first day as a married couple - at Union Station Hotel in Nashville
Our life vest drill after boarding the ship - really hilarious!
The view from our room - not too bad!
Dressed up for dinner...

On a street in Progreso, Mexico!

At the Governor's "palace" in Progreso - check out that guard cut-out behind us!

At El Cid resort in Cozumel. We ate, drank, laid in the sun and snorkeled all day here. So much fun!

Our ship - as seen from Cozumel...

Our "Happy Honeymoon" cake that J's family sent us! It was SO good!
