Over the Weekend..

This past weekend was super fun!! It started with Thanksgiving and ended in an Egg Bowl victory between Mississippi State and Ole Miss.

We had Thanksgiving Thursday with Kendol's family here in Jackson, then went to Columbus to celebrate with my Daddy's side of the family on Friday!! There were babies everywhere and I finally got to meet my cousin Kaylis' precious little angel Lawson. O my... he is the cutest!

Look at those cheeks!!

Sweet Hayes' found her a new favorite toy..
The John Deere Dump Truck ha!!
After we wrapped up our final Thanksgiving festivities (5 total), Kendol and I headed to Starkville to kick off the Egg Bowl festivities. First up, a trip to Anthony's for dinner. Yum!!!

After a late dinner it was off to bed in preparation for Saturday's festivities. We were out in the Junction by 9:30... our game was at 6!! We had lots of tailgating to do and we did just that!

We even had a maroon and white Chrimma Bush!
 Finally it was time for the game!! And it started pouring... and it poured for hours... as in it poured until Sunday at lunch. But the rain made it even more fun, in my opinion.

Santa even came!
This is Gilmer... a business school professor/Santa on the side!!
Isn't he precious??

Boobie Dixon (49ers) came back for the game and he was super pumped!!
Love him.
 And the outcome... Mississippi State keeps the Golden Egg in Starkville for another year!! It marks the first time in 70 years that we have won 3 consecutive Egg Bowls against Ole Miss, which just absolutely makes my year.

This was our endzone for the game!
Ever since twitter started, it has just become a must to put #hailstate in a tweet regarding MSU.
Of course Ole Miss made fun... bc that's all they ever do to us.
All I've got to say is... How can you make fun of our endzone if you never even saw it??
MSU: 31
Ok that's all the trash talk I'm going to dish out ha! (sorry Rachel and Faye) It's all in good rivalry fun :)
P.S. I wish you two had come to tailgate :(

OOOO and I got to meet (well wave really big) to Nicole !! A precious blogger and fellow Bulldog. Go check her out!!

OOOO and these two cuties made the Kiss Cam on the Jumbrotron.. Yes!!!! We went nuts ha!
Yes, we have a Kiss Cam and it's awesome!

Grant and Rachael

Oooooo and I got myself one of our awesome Egg Bowl jerserys with the Egg Bowl gold numbers!! So sad I have to wait til Christmas morning to sport it. It's going in the ole stocking!They were legit. I heard alot of trash talk about the jerseys and the gold cleats... but they looked awesome in person and we were being festive!! Loved it.

My favorite part!
Sunday was spent being lazy and doing a little Christmas shopping, then ended with some Chicken Parmesan, "Horrible Bosses" and last but not least some Kardashians.

O, and over the weekend I had a dream nightmare that I attended a Taylor Swift concert.... in my swim suit.. The concert is nightmare enough... but in my swim suit. MORTIFYING.. I was furious when I woke up... and stayed that way for a few hours.

I hope everyone's weekends were equally as fabulous (minus the whole concert debacle)!!


  1. Wasnt the game so much fun:) I think the rain made it so much fun!!!! I was watching the Kardashians last night and almost texted you to see if you were watching it:)

  2. his cheeks are soo cute i could just squeeze them! thanks for introducing me to the egg bowl. this weekend was definitely the one for all the college rivals to play each other. looks like you had a great time callie

  3. I really do love this post (minus the smack talk...haha just kidding :)) I don't mind a little victory dance, y'all deserved it this year! And I will be the first to say, I didn't say a SINGLE negative thing about State this year...because I refrained from saying anything at all :) Everyone hates a sore loser...Sure wish I had been off work, because we totally would've come to tailgate with y'all. Next year, come to Oxford?!? I would just die of excitement!

  4. looks like so much fun! I was really impressed by putting the hashtag in the end zone. It's really clever & advanced. And congrats on winning! My team (Texas A&M) lost, which was sad :(

  5. I hate when I wake up from a dream and it seemed so real that I'm still pissed or sad or whatevs. Not cool! I had a dream this weekend that I had 3 boys. FML! I can't imagine having 3 boys.

    Your weekend looked super busy and I'm so glad your team won. I Wish I could say the same about ours. We SUCKED this year. There is always next year.

    I watched RHATL last night over Kardashians. OMG, you have to watch if you haven't yet. Just wait until you see "Ri-DICK-ulous" the stripper. NO WORDS.

  6. oh my goodness, looks and sounds like so much fun. busy... but fabulous. lol. adore this post. thanks for sharing, love. xo
