Confession: I am not a football fan. It’s not that I hate the sport as much as I find it incredibily difficult to sit through it for FOUR hours. Don’t think I’m not a sports fan. I love basketball (not really much of a choice marrying a basketball athlete, haha). But football is just sooooo boring! Plus it’s outside so it’s nearly always too hot or too cold.
However, I live in the Southern United States. It is so part of the culture here. Christopher watches football some just to keep up with conversation with friends, but he doesn’t really have a team [other than the Bears, but we're talking about college football here]. My sister, Holly, and her family are all HUGE Alabama fans. And so we cheer for Bama on the rare occasions we watch games to support my sis. But now we’ve decided to put a stake in a team. So I do believe that we are Bama fans now… I think…
Us at the stadium!
So this weekend we went to visit one of my old college roomies. She happens to be in grad school in Tuscaloosa, Alabama home of the Crimson Tide. She also is a major Bama fan so I heard a lot about Alabama’s football team over the 4 years I knew her.
Mary and I as seniors in college (Fall 07). We worked together (notice our super fly uniforms, name tags, and head sets) and sometimes we spent some serious time goofing off and dancing.
Getting to hang out with Mary and her sister, Abbey, this weekend was so great!
Us with all our Bama influences

Every where we travel we always pick up an ornament for our Christmas tree… this little place was cute.
Look at our cute little Bama snowman! He plays the fight song and says “Roll Tide!”
Another thing we always do when visiting a place, is check out the local food. This place was super delicious!
Us waiting outside the Waysider. The place was packed the whole time we were there and there were always people waiting for tables. Definitely a good sign of tasty food!
The Waysider had all you can eat biscuits that come with anything you order. They were so tiny and cute and amazingly scrumptious!
My breakfast from the Waysider. Oh my gracious, it was DELISH! Well, except the grits, but that’s just because I’m not a grits person.
Christopher’s breakfast. That’s meat stuff is called steak o’lean and it is the saltiest thing I’ve tasted. He said it was okay and worth having once, but he probably wouldn’t order it again.
Speaking of food – we nearly always try to stop at Panera for breakfast while traveling. We LOVE their bagels!
Aaaand of course… our jumping shot!
We had a great time experiencing A-Day for the first time and getting to hang out with my sister, brother-in-law, and old college friends.
What did you do this weekend?
