Welcome Fall 2011!

Welcome fall! I sure have missed you! Today is the first official day of fall, in case you were wondering or didn’t already know. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, which many of you probably already knew.

In college, when I was roommates with Melissa, I would get so excited about the “Fall of the Year” and without a doubt danced around and acted like an idiot when it finally rolled around. I always think of Melissa when it’s the “Fall of the Year” and I laugh about all the great times we had together, sitting out on the stoop, dancing and singing to TLC’s “Scrub’s” (which I’ve heard on the radio twice this past week), among other things. College – it’s the best years of your life people, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

So, tonight, I’m headed out to a brand new venue for me and I’m pretty excited about it. I’ll be covering the Etowah vs. Johnson game. This will be my second time to see Etowah play. The last time was a thriller against Madison County, this time I imagine it will be a blow-out over Johnson. I could be wrong though because I though the Madison County game would also be a blow out. So, we’ll see.

Anyway, the game is being played at Lewis Crews Stadium, which is the stadium on the campus of Alabama A&M University. I have never even set foot inside this stadium since it was built just a few years ago so I’m anxious to see what it looks like and what kind of concessions they have to offer, etc. etc. It should be a fun experience.

Last night I had some of my girlfriends over for dinner and catching up and we also had a surprise baby shower of sorts for our friend Amy. I think everybody except for one person got her diapers, wipes and baby wash or some combination of the three. Amy was surprised and we all had a fun time getting together and catching up on each other’s lives.

Well, I suppose that’s about it for today. It sure seems like when I started this post I had a long list of things to tell you all about, but now that I’ve gotten to this point I can’t think of much else to write about. I would like to say thanks for all the comments in the things That Annoy Me post. It was interesting to read about what grates on your nerves. I have no doubt there will be follow up post some time in the future.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Get out and enjoy the nice weather! See you Monday!

YAY Fall!!!!!! I'm glad the shower went well last night too. My sister called me afterwards, but the old woman here was already in bed :).
