Whooooooooooooooooooooooo Pig Sooie!!!!!!!!!!

Four more days until my very favorite time of the year (outside of Christmas) - FOOTBALL!!!!


Anyone out there excited besides me????? I can hardly stand it. I love EVERYTHING about this time of year. I love when the leaves change, I love pumpkin candles, I love pumpkins on porches, fall wreaths, crisp days, fall clothes, caramel apple spice at Starbucks, starting the day with College Game Day and ending it with Sportscenter. :-) I love listening to Colin Cowherd on ESPN radio and getting pumped for each game weekend. I love Sunday afternoons when the college rankings come out. I love cool mornings and nights and warm days. I love new school supplies.

I love going to Razorback games and picking out a cute red outfit and hearing the band play our fight song and seeing the team run out of the A and making that first touchdown and high fiving everyone around me and standing the whole game and yelling at the top of my lungs and eating $100 popcorn and cokes, and people watching and looking at other cute red outfits, and listening to the after game show on the radio on the way home.

My dad turned me into the Razorback football fanatic I am today. He took me to games from the time I was very young until I got married. Most of the time just me and him and I LOVED it. I hope to help Harper love football and game days! I know Scott is looking forward to snuggling with her on the couch in January and watching NFL playoffs. ha!

Speaking of the SEC ( the greatest conference in the world) and the Hogs - our friends who gave us that awesome SEC matching game started a blog. Please go visit them and welcome them to blogging. Oh and they also got Scott this awesome shirt in Starkville (Mike's a Miss St grad).

My apologies to any Ole Miss fans out there. At least you still have the grove. ha!

So - are you ready for some football and who are you cheering for?????

I CANNOT WAIT!! I think I am just as excited as you! We are HUGE Razorback fans and everything you described is exactly why I love this time of year too!!

Carrie said...

I can not wait I could have wrote the same thing just change it to GO DAWGS! Im working on some red and black project right now!

Linda said...

I am looking forward to football but also the weather that comes with it. It is fun to go to the games on a nice fall day. Hubby teaches part-time in a satelite program for UofA and if they play in Little Rock this year we are going to try to get to a game. I am a huge Tiger Basketball fan but football has always been whoever is playing UT(Vols)

Kelley said...

I am HUGE fan of FALL in general and can hardly wait for the pumpkins, the fall leaves and the need for a sweatshirt. As for football, my blood runs ORANGE (sorry to my friend Linda)....GO VOLS!!!! My Dad played football there in the 60's so we were born Tennessee fans (particularly me because he was 19 years old when I was born).

SLS said...

I am so excited for football!!! And I just love this time of year! I am a Gator fan! Gooooo Gators! And I agree with you, SEC is the greatest conference!!!

Mandi said...

It's so funny to read this because we are getting pumped about football season here in Florida!!! We love our Gators just as much as you love your Razorbacks...GO GATORS!!!

I LOVE everything about this season, too! And Starbucks drinks like caramel apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes...Oh, girl...now you're speaking my love language...I've heard you use this phrase a couple of times when referring to yummy treats and have decided it is a "Kellyism" (:

Deidra Brown said...

Sorry Kelly! Can't wait until my big game day UA vs. Clemson
ROLLL TIDE ROLLL
I am a huge Alabama fan to bad my husband is an Auburn fan. Yes we are a house divide family. That fine I still love him.

Honeybee said...

Hello there! Found your cute blog on my reader and have enjoyed some of your posts. We are OU alumni so Sooners fans, but I can appreciate your excitement. Well...my hubby would appreciate it more than me!

Jenna said...

Oh Kelly, I love me some Fall!!!!
I love the weather, the trees, the baked goods, the scents, everything! Oh yeah, and RAZORBACK FOOTBALL (ahem, and the hot dogs that come with it)!

"J" said...

I'm an NFL nut! I love the Cowboys! It's all about being a TEXAS GIRL! That is THE ONLY TEAM we watched growing up! I've never been in to college ball but I love your excitement and enthusiasm!!!! I'm right there with ya ~ just in the NFL world!!!!!! lol

Mallory and Kenny said...

What year did your husband graduate? Was he in a fraternity? I went to state too! Go Dawgs!

Erin said...

I'm a Midwestern girl, so my heart lies with the Big Ten conference. I can't wait to see Michigan back in action. M Go Blue!

R said...

this post made my day! i love many of the same things about fall, although ours in North Texas is probably not as defined as yours.

we'll be watching my University of North Texas and Husby's Texas A&M!

Page said...

It's fun to read everybody's comments! We're GATORS!! GO GATORS!!! And, I agree that the SEC is definitely the best!

Kim said...

Counting down the days until the first game. Go Georgia Dogs!!!

Tracy said...

I'm so with you! Love starting my Saturday off with College Game Day as well! I made a blog post similar a couple weeks ago.

Okay, but our team love differs becasue...gulp...I'm a Longhorn fanatic ;-) And yes, our rivalry is renewed this year on September 13. Hook'em.

Mabry's gamma said...

Gotta go with Penn State, we are originally from PA but now that we are here in GA, husband thinks we probably should go UGA or possibly get kicked out of our development. ha ha

I am just glad that it is coming into Fall, football season, sweaters, leaves changing and the whole hoopla of the season. Yeah!

Jenna said...

One post about blingin pacies and all things pink and the next about SEC football and Sportscenter. I think you are the coolest person I know. :)

Alyssa said...

I am so glad that I happened to find your blog today. Football is my FAVORITE time of the year. I am an athletic trainer at the high school where my husband coaches, it also happens to be the high school where we met, became high school sweethearts, and where he played football. We are such a football family that we scheduled our child's birth around a football game.
I was looking at your older posts and I have to know where I can get the SEC matching game.
Roll Tide!!!

A Belle and her Beau said...

I just got 57 times more excited about fall just by reading your post!!! We bleed red and black (go dawgs) but this weekend we will be routing for the underdog in Athens, the Georgia Southern Eagles. I wrote a sad post about it yesterday :)

The best part of College Gameday is Kirk Herbstreit ... whoo hooo!

Susie Harris said...

How can I say this and it not come out corny.... My husband dreams of me acting like that! He wished I would get a little into the football season. I want to I just dont know that much about it. I cheered all through my highschool years and didnt learn a tootin' thing about it. I can mix up some great dips and finger foods. Awww My poor husband... I think he would be the happiest man on earth if I got into the game. I am going to try really hard. Of course he is cheering for yall's HOGS... all the while he lives with me... in Baton Rouge.... tigers.... sorry I had to say it, smile. My sweet baby who is 8 has mixed feelings. She has a tigers cheerleading suit and of course one for those Razorbacks. She wears them both with pride! You go girl! You inspire me....smiles! Go Hogs Go...see Im trying!

gtown1 said...

We're rootin' for our DAWGS (maroon and white) :) I'll have to get that SEC matching game too cute. One great thing of moving from Waco was we are now 4 hours from MSU and will get to attend several games with Walker...go SEC!
Btw--love the shirt Mike gave ya'll- as you know we strongly dislike Ole Miss (no offense) anyway...but you know how it is.

boomama said...

Best post ever. Made me squeal and clap my hands.

And clearly there are some new friends I need to meet.

Sister and I are trying to figure out if we can get together this weekend to watch the Dogs on TV together. Please keep us in your prayers as we try to coordinate our schedules for this important event.

Kim said...

We are ready for football season here!! BOOMER SOONER!!!! We are OU fans here, but I also root for the Hogs!!

War Eagle!

Bring on the cheese dip and nachos, the house divided garden flags, the doggie jersies and Sunday morning church ties... bring on the truck flags, the clever t-shirts, and the WINS!

I love that all of us gals are so excited about football season!

P.S. I stole your meat cupcake recipe - but I referenced you, so no worries!

Katie said...

Ahhhh...I wished I was as pumped about football season as I usually am...but things are a little different this year!!! I'm hoping to make it to the Ole Miss game in late October!!

LOVE YOU A GOOGLE... said...

Love, Love, LOVE the fall! I love it so much, as bad as I wanted to get married I waited 11 months just to do it in October! :) ha! and football I have definitely grown to love. I love going to the games. We got Ethan tickets to the LR game next weekend for a surprise. He will be ECSTATIC when he finds out he is going. He is the true Razorback fan in our house! :) Get ready to CALL THOSE HOGS!!!! :)

Cabana Maam said...

Go GATORS, baby! Chomp CHOMP!

Harris Family said...

I agree with you...The best time of the year besides Christmas is football season!

GO SEC!!! How bout getting picked up by ESPN! Boy, are we ever glad since we will not be in Fayetteville for every game this year! It is the so wondrful! Where else do you see fine china and high heels at football games?!?! Only in the SEC! LOVE IT!

SASSY said...

All I can say is.... GO LONGHORNS!!!

Amy (Metz) Walker said...

I'm like you...love love love this time of year...and love my Auburn Tigers. War Eagle!

The Barnes Crew said...

M-I-Z...Z-O-U!! GO TIGERS!!! Love the Big 12!!

Fran said...

GO HOGS GO!!! Can I send this picture of Scott to an Ole Miss fan??? Actually, I'll send her to your blog! :)

Can't wait...I feel it in the air my friend. Get that baby ready for some jumping and clapping. Don't want to scare her.

Hugs,
Fran

Jen said...

I've SO been looking forward to football and tailgating...but I've decided to forego the first game this year to stay home with my 3-week-old Caroline. It was a tough decision, but I figured I couldn't handle a separation of more than a couple hours just yet. Hubbie will go and celebrate for me, but I'll be there at the next game in September!

You're lucky that little Harper isn't due right before the season starts...she'll be prime age for tailgating fun next fall! :-)

Cindy said...

I love, love, love the fall!!! We're a GATOR family here!
Go gators!!!!

Britni and Justin said...

I love this time of year, also!!! I am so excited about football season! I graduated from Alabama and my husband graduated from Auburn, so we are a "house divided" I love SEC football!!!

Lauren said...

Oh yes... Cannot WAIT for Saturday! I am busy getting ALL of our outfits ready! And I love hearing College Game Day playing in the background on Saturday mornings. I, also, can't wait to beat (did I just say that?) Ole Miss come October!

And my fall wreath will be going up September 1st! :) I might hold off on the pumpkins, mums and cornstalks until September 15th! MAYBE!

Ashley said...

I was just talking to one of my freshmen English classes about this today. I was explaining to them why fall is the perfect season--pumpkins, changing leaves, fall wreathes, apple cider, apple anything and football.

We live in the midwest, and I will always choose to root for my sweet, sweet Purdue. I can't wait to Boiler Up!

Bama Girl in AZ said...

Right on! I second all of those fall things!! My most favorite time of the year! I gotta say......WAAAAAAAAAAAAAR EAGLE!!!!!!

Sorry had to do it!

Love your blog and so happy you have little Harper on the way!

Laura said...

ROLL TIDE!! I was so excited last weekend, I had to get my man to put my flag outside. Summer's over, hello football season!!

Robyn Beele said...

I am supporting the Georgia Bulldogs!!! They are ranked NUMBER 1!!! :)

Lisa said...

I love all the things you listed about fall except for ... football. I've tried and tried and I just can't get into it. I don't think I'll let my husband read this post because he'd be so jealous! :) I did watch the Olympics with him every night though and loved it. That's something, right! He's a huge Nebraska football fan so I guess I'll just leave it with ... Go Huskers!

Stephanie said...

Hi Kelly! I just had a blog posting similar to yours....I agree with everything you said about loving the season and football!!! Have to say it......GO AGS!!!! ; )

duchess said...

Absolutely love fall. Can't wait.
I've been checking all the tv sports to see what's on this weekend (since we can't go anywhere).
We cheer for a few teams actually. I'm a UNC fan that went to ECU, the son & the hubby love NCSU and we've just moved to the upstate of SC so I guess we might have to start cheering for Clemson.
Sorry we're an ACC family.
Not much longer.

Rachel said...

Fellow Razorback fans here!! We have been counting down the days and Claire can hardly wait to wear her sweet Hogs Cheerleader uniform Santa brought her!! This is my favorite time too..just decorated the house in fall decor!!! BTW - love the name Harper Brown and I LOVE all the things you have bought (and received =)) for her!!!

One more thing - the best part of going to football games...finding something cute in red to wear!!!

Amanda said...

Agree! I grew up the daughter of a high school football coach and taught my husband everything he knows about the sport! HA! I LOVE football season and the fall, it is truly the best time of year!
I must say that at least you get to wear cute red outfits, do you know how hard it is to find cute orange outfits! ;)

Jacquie said...

I certainly hear all about football in the fall/winter, but I just never really get that much into it. Kale has grown to love those fall football games, though.

You crack me up... YOU ARE the only one I know of who actually played their team song at their wedding!!

Jennifer said...

You are my kind of girl! I LOVE the fall! We were engaged a year just so we could get married in the fall! I couldn't have had a better due date either!! Now if I can just get Brody to be born on an away game Saturday so that I can lay in the hospital bed and watch games all day! I can hardly wait for this Saturday and I can't decide what to wear. I might need to go shopping!

My purple dress is from Motherhood Maternity. Thank you for the sweet compliment!:)

ShortOne said...

Who are we rooting for??? Is there any team other than the HOGS! GO HOGS!!!! Can't wait til Saturday! We don't get to go to many games in person, try to make the LR games, but we never miss one! We either watch on TV or have the radio blaring!

GO HOGS!!!

Kathy said...

Mercy Kelly you took my breath away just reading your blog. Are you excited or what!! I am a fan of the Hogs and of course the Dallas Cowboys. But I am the biggest fan of fall. Love everything about it. Goodbye August!

Leigh Ann said...

Okay, reading this totally got me ready for Fall! I told Derek just the other day I was getting excited about football. He about fell out! Ha!

mer@lifeat7000feet said...

Kelly...I am very excited too. I'm coming to the Razorback game on November 1 (Tulsa, I think) and I want to see you there!!!

I'm just getting caught up on your blog, and I am SO happy to hear you're having a girl! I LOVE it!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

Yes, I'm with you! It is so much fun!! I think I could be an announcer, I make all (ok a lot of)the calls and comments before they do, ha :) But now that we're out west we are not really going to have a real fall :( We'll have to live vicariously through your posts and pictures!

Tracy and Andy Yates said...

I am Very Excited! I am already wanting to get my Tennessee jersey out and wear it around. I located my bracelet and necklace along with my jacket. I got my pillow and my fleece blanket ready. I will be watching the first game on Monday. GO VOLS!!

PS- I really do think we are kindred spirits! I love all the fall things too, and look forward to fall again as soon as it leaves!

Michelle said...

I too am ready!
GO TENNESSEE VOLS and TENNESSEE TITANS!

Rocky Top!!!

Jen said...

This native Arkansan who lives in Louisiana is an Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner) fan all the way!! :) I'm SO ready for football...I love the season too just like you.

Meredith said...

Kelly! I am SO ready for Fall also!!!! I think it is my favorite time of year-like from September to December!!! Anyway, have a great time at the games!!! We haven't gotten any tickets yet.

Beki said...

Oh how I love the fall too! And this got me SOOO excited! I'm a HUGE LSU TIGER fan! Geaux TIGERS!!! It's so funny b/c 2 of my closest friends and I love, love, love college football while our husbands could take it or leave it! My husband jokes that if our son learns anything about football it will be from me! Have a great weekend!!

Honea Household said...

I, too, LOVE this time of year. Jim and I noticed tonight as we were driving back from San Antonio how much earlier it gets darker. Makes me so excited becuase that means the seasons are about to change. Fall is my absolute favorite season. The anticipation of Christmas is so exciting! And I love pumpkins, apples, and spice. And football, too!

Anonymous said...

This is absolutely my favorite time of the year as well...and for all the same reasons you listed.

BOOMER SOONER!
GO POKES!

I cheer on both OU and OSU in my home state of Oklahoma!

Heather said...

Texas Tech Red Raiders...Get Your Guns UP!! We absolutely love this time of year, and are headed to Lubbock in a few weeks for our first game since moving back home from SEA. I can't wait to buy mums, pumpkins, & put all of my fall stuff out in the house.

Julie said...

You now it girl!!!! I'm so excited. But sadly, Bryan doesn't seem interested at all!! I'm very sad and a little worried! :( But he seems to act like this every year right before football season. But I'm ready!! We had some scheduling conflicts and we will be in Ada for the first OU Sooner football game. I've not missed the first home football game in I think 4 years!! But thankfully my in laws are getting it on Pay Per View. I'm packing my OU gear to wear Saturday. And I too will start my morning with Game Day!! At leasat my FIL will watch it with me!!!

Lindsey said...

I'm ashamed to tell you about all the WAR EAGLE outfits my girls have, matching, of course.

We are a MAJAH Auburn family (love the SEC, too)!

spiritmom said...

You are so cute...we are Aggies and used to go nuts over every game until our two boys started playing youth football. Sadly, we hardly know when the Ags play now because we are racing to our boys' games every Sat in Sept and Oct. And for the second year in a row, they're both playing quarterback and this mama has to use some serious self control in the stands!!!

The Hickman's said...

GO HOGS- I AM SO EXCITED about this year! I LOVE your husband's shirt!

Sister said...

Oh, I'm also so excited about football season!

LOVE the shirt.

Hail State!
Go 'Dogs! Sic 'em!

Go HOGS! Boomama sent me your way and how glad I am! We are Razorbacks living in Iowa and you can't believe the lengths my husband will go to in order to watch or listen to a Razorback game. He's actually a Ouachita grad but you know everyone from AR is a Razorback! My 16 year old daughter is a high school cheerleader so we've just returned from the first game of the season. She's the last of my 3 and the only one considerng UofA. We're bringing her to Fayetteville soon--hopefully on a game weekend. Her daddy will be in hog heaven to see her call those hogs!
