A Tradition Unlike Any Other...

Ok so maybe it wasn't the Masters but the the annual Michigan/Ohio State game in a sense IS a Tradition Unlike Any Other.  These seats were not as "good" as our previous game seats being on row 81 as opposed to the mid-twenties but I'm now a believer about there not being a bad seat in the house.  Michigan did not end the day as Victors or Conquering Heroes but it was a better game than most predicted.

It's Football Time in Tennessee

As we get older my brother and I both cherish the times we get to spend with my parents.  Since we live in different cities, we don't get to spend nearly as much time together as we'd like.  My dad has even begun sucking it up and going to football games with us! Two weekends my brother was in town and my parents came down on Sunday to hang out with us and go to the Titans game.  I have to admit, between Vince Young and Chris Johnson, the Titans are looking so much better after their terrible start.

Michigan Beer Festival

In July Darren, Alex, Anna and I went to the Michigan Beer Festival in Ypsilanti, MI.  I would never have been able to imagine the beer concoctions that they came up with.  I would never have thought of a blueberry pancake beer slushy, beer flavored with chipotle or beer that tasted like liquid creme brulee.  It was such a fun day... We might have to make a trip to the winter beer festival in February!

Play Ball

This summer Darren took me to Comerica Park to see the Detroit Tigers play my Chicago White Sox.  The good guys in black prevailed 5-1!  Too bad the Baseball season is long over and those annoying Yankees won, again.

Elizabeth's Bachelorette Party - Part 3

Pictures from the remainder of the night celebrating Elizabeth's last girl's night before tying the knot on October 3rd!

Elizabeth's Bachelorette Party - Part 2

After dinner and star stalking we went to our favorite Nashville bar, The Stage!  By this time we were making all sorts of crazy faces.  Enjoy laughing because we certainly did that night!

Elizabeth's Bachelorette Party - Part 1

Sometimes when I scrapbook a night there seems to be 1 million really good pictures.  How do you narrow them down?  How do you leave out one picture over another?  It can sometimes be really hard.  For Elizabeth's shower and bachelorette weekend I think I took 200 pictures, of which I wanted to use almost 60... I did end up cutting about 12 but that is still a TON pictures to scrapbook yielding a ton of scrapbook pages! You've seen the shower and here follows the evening's events!

These pages are from dinner, drinks and dancing at Cabana.  This is also where we ran into Carrie Underwood!!

The Truth Hurts...Sort of

I read this today in a response by Olin Buchanan to some 'fan' mail on talking about the SEC being the best conference in the country:

I've often compared SEC football fans to a beautiful woman who's painfully insecure: No matter how many times she's told she's beautiful, it's never enough. She needs constant validation. And if you have the audacity to say someone else is beautiful, too, she throws a tantrum, slings dishes and slashes your tires.

My reaction is the proof we've put on the field in the last 3 National Championships and 4 of the last 6.  The other two were USC.  You have to go back to 2002 for a Big 10 National Championship and to 2000 for one in the Big 12.

Elizabeth's Nashville Bridal Shower

Thankfully I am finally able to be creative again.  It is back and in full force!  These two pages are from the Bridal Shower part of Elizabeth's Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Saturday Extravaganza! Any time we get to have fruit pizza is a good day!  What a fun day.  I can't believe my girl is MARRIED!

Family Time on July 4th

I spent July 4th in Hopkinsville with my family.  As you can see by the pictures, this weekend mainly consisted goofing off with my cousins.  I love them all so much; I wish I got to spend more time with them!!

A 21st Birthday that was Remembered!

My little cousin Heather finally turned 21 this summer.  We had quite the low key night of dinner at Amerigo's and then goofing off together on the streets of Nashville.  She's all grown up now.  Makes me feel so old remembering her being born!

Aarggh Matey

I spent Halloween in Ann Arbor with Darren.  I had previously been a pirate so Darren decided to get a costume that would compliment mine.  We ended up at a pre-party at Alicia's house and then out at Connor O'Neills.  A good time was had by all.

Here is some of the rest of the crew: Pete (from the Big Lewbowski), Laura (Heidi Montag), Kevin (Inmate), Alicia (Goddess), Mitul (Ninja/Pilgrim), and Darren.
