This might be confusing to some but here's what it means... Alabama's "thing" is Roll Tide. Auburn's is War Eagle! Their mascot is an elephant and Auburn's is a tiger! Strange I know, but it's our battle cry :) Anyway... so this shirt I think is AWESOME... Roll This Bama to me means... KISS MY ASS!! ha! Sorry it's the BIGGEST rivalry Auburn has and it's a brutal one. It's braggin rights for a year... it's being able to tell your friends "Who cares about (BLAH) we won the iron bowl!!" It matter more than I could tell you! And I am proud to say I am an Auburn fan (even if we have had a shitty season!) I hope we get a 7th win this year so bad I can't stand it! I get all fired up talking about it :) We have our "We Believe... Beat Bama!" sign up in our yard. We will be sporting Orange and Blue all weekend and wearing our Beat Bama pins!! :) So if you don't care about Saturday's game and you don't love either team, pull for my TIGERS! We need it! WAR EAGLE!!
Moving on to Thanksgiving traditions...
Tomorrow, Hubs and I will be going to be with his family for lunch (we live in the same town as them) and then on to my family for dinner! Hubs has a HUGE family that gets together! My family, however, will consist of Mom, Dad, 1 half brother (out of 4), his girlfriend, my only grandparent still living (MawMaw-mom's mom), my mom's sister, her son and his girlfriend and Hubs and I! I have a HUGE family. I mean massive! But when I my dad's mom passed away earlier this year, our tradition of doing all holidays at her house did too! Everyone used to gather at her house for Thanksgiving and Christmas! It was a HUGE deal! And that is the only times of the year that we all saw each other. You see, my family isn't a REAL close one. I mean, my mom and I are SUPER close. BFF! But I am not really close with any of my other family. That's not to say I don't love them dearly, but we just haven't ever been close. So it's so new to me to now be a part of a family (Hub's) that is so close. Anyway, I say all this to say that I am VERY thankful for so many things this Thanksgiving. Here's my short list!
- My salvation. Thank God for sending his ONLY son to die so that I can live an eternal live in Heaven!
- My wonderful, sweet, amazing husband!
- My strong, selfless, precious mother!
- My family & friends!
- My health (I realize more now than ever how blessed I am to be so healthy!)
- My church. (Well God's church. So thankful to have found one that I can grow in)
- My freedom (Thank you to all the troops who serve our country so selflessly so that we can live free)
- My job! It's not the best paying, but it's stable and I have all I NEED!
I could say so much more! I am just so blessed to have all I have in my life! My life in enriched because of the people in it.
Now onto WWW!!!
This won't be too long. I just have some news to report!! I LOST ANOTHER 2 POUNDS!!! So I am officially out of the 150's. I am not 149 and loving it!! So that's 17 pounds down! Whoooo! I ordered all new pants last week so I am officially in an 8 (and they are baggy)! So that is one more thing I am thankful for!! I also ran two miles yesterday! I haven't done that ever--well maybe when I was a cheerleader, but it's been a loooong time! I was thrilled. And to stay on schedule with workouts... I will be running today at the local track (because the gym is closed today and tomorrow) and in the morning, I will be getting up to go for a run before we start our Thanksgiving Day :)
I am lucky (kinda)... I don't like all the foods that come with the holidays. The only thing I will eat usually is turkey! I don't like casseroles... I don't like pies... I don't like dressing/stuffing. I usually eat the white meat off of turkey (with no skin) and that's that! So I shouldn't go through any BIG withdraws this season due to my dieting!! My mom usually makes mac and cheese for me, but I have instructed her not to do that. It's not necessary and I love turkey (only at Thanksgiving & Christmas) so I will be good to go!
I hope all of you lovely ladies have the best Thanksgiving ever! This is my first as a married lady so it's exciting! So much to be thankful for! I won't be back on Blogger until Monday probably! It scares me to think how many posts I will have to catch up on!
HAPPY TURKEY DAY!!!!!!!!
