Show Us Your LIfe - Tailgates and Favorite Teams

I think you all know I'm crazy about my Arkansas Razorbacks! My parents both went to the U of A and we have been coming to games as long as I can remember. I thought I would share some of my favorite recent pictures and memories (even though I have a lifetime of these).
In 2006 - College Game Day came to Fayetteville for the first time when AR and TN were both ranked. We got up early and came and watched the show and then we BEAT the vols that night. We were not quite "#1" but that night it felt like it!
One of our favorite game day experiences is when our families can come and be with us. Scott's parents usually come up for one game every year. They are coming this weekend for the Auburn game only just the men are going this time.
My parents come for every game so it always gives us an excuse to see them. My dad also comes to most basketball games - he is a crazy fan. I love basketball SO MUCH too but my very favorite is Football. I can not stand baseball (sorry to all of you who love it).
In September 2003 - Scott and I went to Austin with my family to watch the Hogs beat Texas. That was so fun but it was also the HOTTEST I have ever been in my life. It was an 11:00 kickoff and we were sitting in the direct sun. It's also the most sunburnt I've ever been.
Scott and I went to Los Angeles to see Arkansas play USC in the coliseum a few years ago. It was such a fun trip. The game - not so much. I've tried to erase the score from my memory but I'm pretty sure it was like 77-14. yikes.
In 2002 I hitched along with a group of people going to watch the hogs play in Knoxville. I only knew a few of this group but I've always wanted to go to a game in Neylend Stadium so bad. I had a great time but once again we lost. In 6 overtimes. BRUTAL. The Tennessee people were SO nice - I would love to go there again. It's a dream of mine to visit all SEC stadiums at least once before I die. I really need to get moving on that. I have 10 more to go.
I love this picture because it was Harper's FIRST Razorback game. I was about 5 months pregnant. This was also the first time I really felt Harper kick a lot - during the game. I guess all my screaming and jumping got her excited. ha!
My friend Hillary is as crazy as I am about the hogs. In fact - we got season tickets the same year and out of almost 80,000 seats - we wound up right next to each other which to this day we still think is amazing. She got married last year and we all posed with Hog noses! How cute is that? I wish we would have done that at our wedding!
And of course my favorite tradition now is dressing Harper up for game day. I can't wait until we can start taking her to games. It will probably be a few years but I hope she grows up loving college football and the hogs as much as I do. I'm pretty sure she has no choice.

The Razorbacks have a tradition of Calling the Hogs! We do it all the time at games, pep rallys, just randomly walking down the street (just kidding). We raise our arms and shake our hands and yell:
Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Pig Sooie
Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Pig Sooie
Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Pig Sooie
and then shake our fists and say "RAZORBACKS"

Our team also has the tradition of running out into an "A" formed by the band at every game!

Hog fans love to tailgate as pretty much every school does. What you will probably find the most at each tailgate is Barbeque. We love BBQ in Arkansas. Which is ironic - if you think about the fact we are eating "pork". ha!

Let's hear it for your teams!

P.S. I HAVE TO END THIS WITH: GO HOGS BEAT AUBURN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Update: you asked for it so here it is:

Myra said...

Shelly Powers said...

in my kindest voice... I just have to say WAR EAGLE!!!!

WHat is funny is that my husband in a HUGE alabama fan so we are a mixed marriage! LOL

Another funny is that I actually have been asking my hubby about the razorback games this season... he recently just said what is up with your recent interest in that team... i had to tell him it was YOU! LOL

Good luck Sat! :)

Megan said...

I love this post! I got so excited that I messed up the link, and had to post twice. You can delete #21, I re-posted properly in #23 :-)

At Baylor if you're rooting for another team you say "Sic 'Em (insert team name here). Soooo....Sic 'Em Hogs!

Hillary said...

I LOVE that you added the "whoooo pig..." to the wedding photo. I'm a fan! Gonna miss you tomorrow!

Trac~ said...

WOOOO PIG SOOOIIEEEE - RAZORBACKS!!!! My husband will literally sometimes call the hogs in the middle of a restaurant in New York, New Jersey, it doesn't really matter - drives me crazy as people look at us like we're NUTS! HA! I hope they beat Auburn this weekend and I HOPE they are on tv again this week. Big hugs! :o)

Allyson said...

Dont you just love football season! And I'm gonna have to say WAR EAGLE! Let's go Tigers!

Jennie said...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR EAGLE!! :)

Todd and Courtney said...

Cute cute cute!! I would totally post our traditions but I don't have any pictures on my computer, sad! We are a mix of teams in our house so it would be one long post :)

Channa said...

You can't even tell you are 5 months preggo in that picture! You were so tiny!!!
Love all the pics! And love college football!!

Patty said...

I am so excited that I get to participate this week!! It is so funny that you posted a pic of Neyland Stadium...and was at the Arkansas/Tn game that went into 6 overtimes!!! I was at that game...I talk about on my post. LOL

Plus, I have a picture at the very end of post in honor of you and your Hogs!!

Blessings,
Patty

The Heath's said...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR EEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAGLLLLLLLLLLLE!

Samantha @ Mama Notes said...

WHy don't you take Harper to the games? We are also huge football fans and I have taken my 7 month old son to all of them!

I bet she would love it! :)

Of course when it starts to get rainy and really cold in a few weeks we probably won't :)

Candice Lynn said...

I am SO glad to see that you said the Tennessee fans were nice to you! As a Tennessee fan I have always hoped that we were good hosts!

Go VOLS!

Jason and Kristin Hunderman said...

I think it'd be great to see you on video doing the "Calling the Hogs" Cheer! :)

Abby said...

I know you have touched on this before, but it is so crazy how different people dress for games! I am a Big 12 girl (Rock Chalk Jayhawk) and would never even imagine wearing a dress to a game! But you look so cute - maybe I will go out a limb next time I make it to a game and dress up!

Carrie said...

If I didn't say it my husband would be very disappointed - WAR EAGLE!

Gracie Beth said...

I am so glad you enjoyed your visit to Neyland and that everyone was nice. I firmly believe that Tennessee is very different from other schools.

Angry Julie Monday said...

Love all the pictures!

I truely envy the school spirit that everyone has in the south.

Ashley said...

AWW MAN! What a cute post! I already did one today so I will post a fun one after the weekend!!! ;)

I sure do miss you, hope to maybe see you next week! I will give you a call!!

Aura said...

I can't believe you're five months pregnant in that picture! You look tiny. You might as well been talking about the Sooners in everything you said, because this is my life living in Norman! I even work on Campus Corner, so on gamedays, it's a SEA of crimson and cream.

Kelly said...

WAR EAGLE!!!!!!!!!!! Love all your pictures btw! :)

Melissa Miller said...

~WOW! Great memories! :)
Love college football! Go Noles!

♥Amber Filkins♥ said...

You are pretty much nuts, lol. :)

I am still wowed by the sunburnt picture. Girl, you are TIIIIINNNY in that picture. Yikes! I've NEVER been that tiny. I bet you weighed like 110.

Shana said...

First time commenting. I LOVE your blog! I had to set up an account so I could comment today! I Loved the Neyland Stadium pic! I live in Knoxville and I am a die hard Vols fan! Like another lady mentioned, my husband and kids don't understand my sudden interest in the Razorbacks this year, so I had to show them your blog! lol We also root for all SEC teams when they are playing other conferences...gosh, it's hard to root for the Gator's though! My son and brother are HUGE BAMA fan's. My son's room is all BAMA and actually looks pretty cool and my brother named his daughter Bama... we thought he was crazy at first, but it really suits her. Now, that I have an account, you will probably hearing more from me. Love reading about you and your precious Harper.

Mandy Quinn said...

Kelly I love your blog and my daughter is not much older then Harper as Jayci will be a year old next week! I live in Auburn and I do have to say "War Eagle" and we are looking forward to a great game!!

Rachel H. said...

Love all the tailgating photos! My favorite season and favorite thing to do on the weekends in the Fall! :)

Rachel McPhillips said...

As a HUGE Alabama fan... I'll be helping you call those Hogs this weekend! Whooo Pig Sooie!!!!!!

Sarah said...

Okay, so I love this southern tradition of dressing up for games - I will bring that up north when I move back next year.

Secondly - you have me intrigued by this Calling the Hogs. In fact - I keep flipping over to the Arkansas games on Saturdays to see if I can hear it. My husband keeps asking me what's with my recent fascination with Arkansas football :)

That being said ... I think you should post a video ... of maybe you and Harper calling the hogs? I'm just saying ... I think it would be cute.

Natalya said...

I love reading your blog but WAR EAGLE!!!!!

Leslie said...

First time commenting, but I've been reading your blog forever and love it! I'm always torn this game. I'm originally from Arkansas, but went to school at Auburn! I will be outwardly pulling for Auburn, but there is always a part of me that loves those Hogs!!

Jessica Miller Kelley said...

We're an SEC family too. My parents went to Kentucky, my husband loves Tennessee, and we met while in grad school at Vandy. There is a book out now, a memoir of a guy who went to all the SEC stadiums and writes about the traditions at each. I can't remember the name right now, but I bet you would love it!

Summer said...

Kelly,
You always crack me up! I love the pic of the wedding party with the noses! How funny is that! You and Scott look like the cutest couple! I love Harper's custom outfits, I get Kelcee's made on Etsy! I have a quick question, the smocked dress of Harpers, where did you get that???? I would like to have one for Kelcee but with another team on it.... I know sorry about the whole other team thing! Ha!

kimberly t. bowling said...

I can't let it pass....WAR EAGLE! :) It would be against my southern, Auburn Tiger, roots!

Barb said...

This time I'm right there with you - I can't wait for you guys to beat Auburn. ROLL TIDE!

Amy said...

I love your blog and think you are sweetheart, but I knew we would get to this week eventually. So War Eagle!!!!! Hope it's a good game, too bad I'll be working and miss it!

Gina said...

We'll be helping you cheer on Arkansas this weekend! Go Razorbacks, beat Auburn!!

Dandelion Momma said...

I say this with all due respect... WAR EAGLE!

Cathy said...

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar Eagle! Hey! Harper would look adorable in a little orange and blue cheerleader outfit, don't you think?

Ashley said...

I'm almost 6 months pregnant now and we took Lily Ann to her first Alabama game about a month ago. She was kicking up a storm, too! Babies must love the roar of the crowd and feel the excitement! Haha!

P.S. I'll be rooting for y'all this weekend. Roll Tide! ;)

Lynda @ SportsMadGirl said...

You call the Hogs, I call the Dawgs!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Dawgs! Sic 'me! Woof Woof Woof.

I love seeing all the girls on here that get as excited about college football as I do. Do women up North get as geared up about football as women in the South?

One last things for this weekend,
Geaux Tigers (beat them Gators!!!)

Carter Family said...

Love your blog. I am addicted.
Just wanted to comment for the 1st time.
Yeah!!!
I am wanting you to do a "show us your life" post on junk that you Keep but have no reason why, or things you hold on to but will never need/use again! Haa
With my first two kids we collected/bought every childrens dvd available. When my twins were born we would blame the broken/scratched/not useable dvd on on the babies. Just recently the babies (now 3) found my "stash" they were so excited about all the dvds they could watch. However all 200 of them don't work What was I thinking keeping them. Maybe the magic dvd fixer fairy would fix them. They have been crying all week to watch them What was I thinking??? I had good intentions, but something just never will be the same/used again.
I think it will be funny/fun to watch all your readers reveal there guilty pleasures. Thanks you so much you your blog and god bless!!!!

Grecia said...

I am still working on setting up my blog so can't participate, but just wanted to give a shout-out to my Kentucky Wildcats~Go Big Blue! Of course, here in KY, our biggest passion is basketball--cannot wait for the season to begin!
Oh, and if you think the TN fans were nice, Kelly, please come to Commonwealth Stadium or RUPP ARENA....we will truly show you what tradition and southern hospitality is all about!!

Lisa said...

hi kelly....

since I have no idea what the tradition of calling of the hogs sound like....I think you should video tape it and post it! what a good idea....

I live in Tx, with the longhorns and the aggies. HA.

riddle me that said...

I cannot believe I am the only SOONER fan that reads Kelly's blog!?!?

Let's show them some SOONER spirit!

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

What a cute post, and fun tradition. We love college ball around our house too!

Blessings this weekend,
LMM

Chelsea said...

Can I request a video of you or Scott (or the both of you) yelling your "Whooooo Pig Sooie" thing? I can't imagine it, and I think it'd be really cute to hear in your accent :)

Heather said...

GO HOGS!!! I totally think you should have posted a video of you calling the Hogs! I will never forget after I moved here and married Todd, my sister and her husband came to visit, and we took them to a basketball game and when people started calling the Hogs they could not stop laughing! They had never seen anything like it!
Have a great weekend, Kelly!

Made To Organize said...

What a great post. LOVED the pictures! I was born in Little Rock and my dad was born and raised in Hot Springs. Thanks to the military, I never really remember living in AR, but spend many summers there at my grandparents'. There is a special place in my heart for the HOGS and my dad STILL pulls for them everytime they play. :)

WAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR EAGLEEEEEEEEE Hey!

Brookie said...

My best the Arkansas as long as Ryan Mallett is your quaterback.

He started at Michigan (MY TEAM!!!!) and had a GREAT freshman year. We LOVED him, but then our coach retired and he transferred to Arkansas.

Enjoy him. Go Michigan! Go Mallett!

Sarah said...

Hey Kelly! I went to U of A and was in the Razorback Marching Band and got to go to the Texas game in 2003 - you aren't kidding about the heat - and we were in those awful, heavy uniforms too! SO HOT, but so worth it! I was also at the TN game you went to! I got to see us beat Ole Miss in the 7 overtimes my freshmen year! GO HOGS! :) And do you remember Batman Carrol? One year in the BIG A, he ran by and slapped my rear and then turn around and winked at me and all the other girls were so jealous! :) Fun times! Love being a RAZORBACK!!

Heather said...

I was being nice earlier, but since everybody else is having fun, I'll join in.

C-A-T-S, Cats, Cats, Cats!!!!!!

you know your basketball coach for basketball, Pelphrey, is a Kentucky Boy. Yep, that's right, UK baby!! :)

The Taffs said...

WAR EAGLE!!!!!!!!!

Haley said...

I loved this post--your pictures are great!
I'm a fan of any team that plays the Auburn Tigers--Woooooooie Pig Sooie tomorrow!!!!! :-)
ROLL TIDE!

Mandi said...

Ya'll are just too cute! Dillan was sitting on the coach next to me and we watched you call the hogs together...HE LOVED IT!...But don't tell Howie. :) He raised his arms and said "Wooooo" and then clapped his hands. Ha Ha!

Nancy said...

Growing up in Michigan...when I moved to AL in the 6th grade, everyone asked me am I a War Eagle fan or Roll Tide? I didn't even know what they were talking about!
I quickly learned that in Alabama you have to make a choice! My son's favorite color is Orange...so don't hold it against me!! War Eagle!!!

Adrienne said...

This is my first time commenting, but as a Vol fan I was so excited to see that you came to Neyland stadium! Good luck with the game tomorrow!
Also, I love the bangs. :)

Diana said...

Love your blog... but gotta give up a BIG Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrr Eagle, Hey!

Courtney said...

That you for posting the video, I needed a visual. Here is in Ohio it is GO BUCKS! OH-IO!

nataliekate said...

I love reading your blog and have been since Harper was born, but I do have to say....

WAR EAGLE!!!!!!!

:)

Kim said...

Can I just say: your bangs are adorable! I think you and Harper might just be the cutest football fans ever.

Nina said...

Kelly, I went to Sonic and thought about you. :) I even wrote about ya in my blog tonight and how I got the cherry vanilla diet coke, which is my absolute favorite! Yummo! I so wish I had a Sonic closer to me.

Maggie Dickinson said...

My husband and I are huge Clemson fans. So are our parents. Our son will not have choice about loving our Clemson Tiger, but I don't think that he will mind. I wish I had tailgating pictures. We go to almost every game, but I never bring my camera. It doesn't fit in my game day purse. :) I love having a big team to follow.

PS. I love all of Harper's game day outfits! We can cheer for the Hogs too, since we never play them.

2 Little Irish Boys said...

Love it!
I have been to many Razorback football and baseball games in the past. John Bland and his wife Candis are good friends of mine (he used to QB for them) and we used to make the rounds all the time.
We visited the campus and found her name on the sidewalk--awesome tradition!!

MrsSchoon said...

Good luck with the game tomorrow!
WAR EAGLE!

Carrie Beth said...

I love your blog and read it every day. I have a daughter named Harper too, but I found your blog after she was born...promise I didn't steal the name. :-) Anyway, we love SEC football too and I'm so happy to be sharing it with both of my daughters. They both attended their first tailgate last weekend and LOVED the entire day. So much fun. I bet your Harper will just love all of the people, sights, and fun when you do decide to take her! My link is #139.

Meg Conley said...

I love to read your blog and this is far and away one of my favorite posts yet! I've never done "Show Us Your Life" before, but I decided to this week and I'm so happy! I love your team spirit and your blog! :)

The Klins Family said...

Good times! We are big MLB fans (sorry, I know you're not) and love having a team to follow and cheer for! Enjoy your blog daily - this is my first official comment!

Kelli said...

loove the video :)

Liz and Garth said...

Precious video of you and Harper!! Thanks for sharing.

Lauren Kelly said...

I love seeing your team spirit and to hear you talk about your great love for your Arkansas. Loved the pics :)

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

eee love it! I have to say first ROLL TIDE! And second ANYONE BUT ALBURN!!! oxoxe

Miss Monogram said...

LOVE the video! You are Harper are SOO cute :) Have a great weekend!

Kylie and crew. said...

I LOVE that you made that video. I actually didn't get the whole Pig Sooie cheer so that helps! Thanks for being so down to earth. I hope your team wins!

Renee said...

Love reading your blog although I'm not a blogger myself. Completely off the subject of Hogs...how did you paint your kitchen cabinets? Love them! rburchyett@yahoo.com

Jeff and Steph said...

You are so funny! Love the demo at the end! You are so cute in all of those pictures! Love the new bangs!

~Alicia~ said...

Question- what is tailgating? Because here in Australia it's when you drive too close to the car in front of you... and I'm guessing by the context of what you were saying that that's NOT what you were talking about! Ha!

Lindsey Conrad - Nabors said...

LOVED the video of you 2 calling the hogs!! I miss living there and doing that!! I love it!! Have a great weekend!!

Tracee said...

Hookem' Horns!

Jill_in_AL said...

War Eagle!!! We made the LOOOOONNNNGGG drive up to Fayetteville in 1999 and Auburn lost a rainy game again your Hogs....what I remember most about that trip (besides Eureka Springs caramel apples) is "that's another Arkansas Razerback FIRST DOWN!" again and again and again.

Hope my Tigers represent better today!

Game day smiles, Jill

Jessica said...

Your pictures are all adorable!
But I have to say....
WWWWAAAAAARRRRR EEEEEAAAAAGGGGGLLLLEEEEEEE HEY!!!

marie said...

I am not a football fan but did so much enjoy the video wth you and little Miss Harper, She is going to get so much pleasure from seeing and hearing all that goes on in her life as she gets older, You are such a good mama !!!

Laura White Photography said...

You know I'm a BAMA fan... so I will say.... GOOOO RAZORBACKS!!!
Any team playing Auburn is who I cheer for!!!

I am pulling for your team today!!!

Sandy P said...

I am Bulldog fan myself, but I remember that Ark/UT game. I taught the kid who was kicking for UT. He was not one of my favorite students, and I kept hoping he would miss a field goal.

Roxanne said...

What a cutie, you are! Love your darling blog and precious baby. I'm a West Texas high school football coaches wife. Coaching for us, has become a ministry. My husband motivates, leads and loves the kids, coaches and community....and I the wives! I treat them like family. God is making a big difference in our corner of the world!

Blessings and blue skies to you and those you love!.

Jennifer said...

That video was too cute! Brody laughed at it...I think he thinks you are funny, or either he saw Harper and it made him laugh! Haha!

I wore purple last night, too! :) Yay OBU!

sjm4him said...

Harper is so cute when she laughs at you clapping...LOVE IT. I'm a huge Ohio State fan...I grew up there...my Dad taught there 35 years...my bro went to Med School there and met his wife whose entire family when to Ohio State...so I "bleed" Scarlet & Gray. We were 1.5 hours away and didn't have $$ to go to games when I was young, but in college I went a couple times. I have been a couple more times since and now enjoy watching on TV. My brother's version of "tailgating" is pretty posh...the exclusive Faculty Club...but I've been with them and it is very nice--often the Men's Glee Club (love me some men that sing!!!) come and do some spirit songs. I know my niece (22 months) will grow to love football as much as her Mommy--who is seriously the expert on all things college FB...I love FB. I decided when I was in HS in OH freezing every Fri night game that I would learn about the game that I was suffering for (marching band). Then with 2 bro's and a Dad that loved FB, I couldn't help but love it...I LOVE FB season!!! :) I've been watching some of your AR v AU game and I got bored watching you all BEAT them good! Happy for you...but I've turned to watching some Big 10 action since we play Purdue next week I wanna see whom we're up against. Harper is precious...thanks for making my day with her sweetness. Have a great weekend. Go Hogs and GO BUCKS!!! :)

Cori said...

Another Auburn fan here - WAR EAGLE! However, it's half time and it's not going well for us. :(

Stephanie said...

We were just in Fayetteville this week. I have never been, but loved going around canpus and shopping at Hog Heaven!! I really did think about you and Harper while I was there! Unfortunatly we were there for my cousins funeral. She was the 10 year old precious girl that was killed last Saturday. She was hit by a car on Razorback road. Please say an extra prayer for my aunt, uncle, and cousins. They are very strong and full of faith, but this is so tough.
GO HOGS!!!

texasinafrica said...

I was at that game in Austin in 2003...on the other side of the stadium, cheering for Texas. What I remember most is the Arkansas crowd starting a cheer when there was a player hurt on the field and us sitting there thinking it was the tackiest thing we'd ever seen, but I'm sure that wasn't y'all. :) You aren't kidding that it was HOT that day. Miserable. I think they had quite a few people end up needing medical treatment for heat exhaustion.

Christina said...

I love the video and your cute accent! It will be so exciting to hear Harper speak one day.

Mrs. E said...

I was at the Tennessee/Arkansas game in 2002...it was my senior year. That game lasted forever but was such a good game. I have several good friends who went to Arkansas so the rivalry between us is strong. Love your blog and your personality!

Krystena K. said...

You two are the cutest and have our accent! :)
tooooo cute!

Gayle @ thewestiecrew said...

Ok, Kelly...
Let us have it! I'm wincing and waiting.... :(
Oh well, War Eagle anyway. :)

mommieof2 said...

Congratulations on your win!!!!

MomMom said...

Congrats to you and your family, Kelly. The Razorbacks played great! It hurts to lose, but the Razorbacks deserve all the credit for playing a super game.

Patty said...

I called the Pigs for ya today. :) I am happy for both our teams but I know Scott isn't proud of my team won. lol!! Come back and visit Tn. and Neyland anytime you want!

Future Mama said...

Cute cute!! I have the perfect post for this!! I'm a BYU fan myself, my hubby and I went to sooo many games in college!

Can't wait to dress our baby up in gear one day like I dress my doggie up!

Kim said...

Don't think I'm weird for this but...My hubby and I had season tickets for several years and I think they were a couple rows in front of yours. I've been thinking that you and Hillary both looked familiar (I'm pretty good remembering faces) and when you said that yours seats are near each other, that confirmed where I had seen you before. We had to give up our season tickets last year when I decided to stay home with our little girl instead of working. I do miss our tickets but Ashlen is worth the sacrifice.

Donna said...

Hi Kelly,
Thank you for the Hog tutorial. I will be practicing my hog calling when I know your team is playing. Cute game day pictures of you and Scott. I know you will be glad when Harper joins in. Have a great weekend with your family.
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.
Donna

The Southern Housewife said...

Love the video!

Ashley said...

We beat em girl! Your video did me proud!!!! Loved it... super cute!!!!!!

Harper is looking like a princess as always, I want to pinch her! Talk to you soon!! ;)

Heather said...

I am cracking up at the video....so cute!!! YAY for the Hog win today!

SayRah said...

Great pics & Fabulous Spirit!

Love It:)

Kathy said...

I know you are thrilled with the game! We watched and I thought about you. And of course, it makes Bama fans kinda happy inside. :)

And why does everyone talk about your accent? You hardly have one!

Gina said...

I'm a Razorback from waaaaayyyy back. Lived in Fayetteville as a little girl and one of my teen-aged babysitters lived near campus. She parked cars in her yard on game days and I would go hang out and watch all the students dressed up for the game. I couldn't wait until I could be one. Fast forward 10 years and I was that student! It was the late 70's and tickets were a nightmare to come by...standing in line & lotteries for limited spaces. Even though we live in Iowa we faithfully watch our hogs...all by ourselves. Tailgate for 2 is not nearly as exciting as being there. Daughter has Arkansas on her short list of universities for next year! Go HOGS!!!!

Heather said...

Just had to tell you, I made cake balls tonight and they look great! White cake, rainbow chip icing (yum!) and dipped in chocolate ganache. Hope they'll go over great at the work lunch party tomorrow. Thanks for what I hope will be my new go-to party recipe!

Heather

Hillary and Russell Jordan said...

You & Harpers are soooo cute... such a fun momma!!!

RockiesRazorback said...

I was at the 6 overtime game at Neyland, too! I think that's probably the most depressed I've ever been in my entire life. We were supposed to stay in Knoxville another night, but we were so upset that we just left the stadium and drove right back to Fayetteville!

kprincesskate said...

K- so I was watching your little tutorial on how to do the Hog call when my husband walked in to the room. He asked what I was watching so I started it over for him to see. He has been walking around all weekend randomly doing the Hogs call. I can't stop laughing when he does it. And he doesn't even watch football- he would rather play sports than watch them. Anyways, thank you for being you! Love your blog!

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

I love all your pictures and so love the videos. You girls are just too cute!!

-S A R A- said...

Hey Kelly! My husband is a native Arkansan (right?)... staying true to his Razorback roots - here's a video of him rocking out the fight song :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOb6yK95VQU

Just thought I'd share! :)
-Sara

Andrea said...

So - my daughter (just turned 6) wanted to watch the video of you calling the hogs with Harper! And now - she wants to watch it over and over. You are a star in her mind - LOL!!

Melissa Abby said...

We were at the USC-Arkansas game, cheering for USC though, and had some crazy Arkansas fans in front of us going that pig cheer the whole time. They were hilarious and so nice though!
