Being Stove Up...and Football

I'm mindful of age today...partly because I have a birthday in October but mainly because it was hotter than the hinges of hell yesterday at the ballgame in Clemson and THEN we drove the whole 3 plus hours home without stopping. We are "all stove up" as my grandmama used to say...meaning we are moving slow today. Hank did go out for a walk awhile ago. I sat on the sunroom couch and stalked my children and their friends on FB.

OH...look at the adorable shoes I found on sale at Steinmart on Friday night!  I got lots of compliments on them at the game. The laces REALLY rock, don't they?

We did have a great time yesterday, in spite of the heat. It was a 12:30 game so we did a brunch tailgate for Lorelai and assorted friends. Our Tigers won handily, eventually playing third string players. I love it when those guys get time on the field. It appears that our backup quarterback is pretty good, all things considered. Nice! My intent was to take pictures with my iPad but the glare was awful. Didn't take a one.The camera goes in the bag next weekend.

Poor Legare...his Tar Heels had a bad day at Wake. Unfortunately for him, his Furman Paladins are probably going to have a bad day next Saturday at Clemson. Hank and I need to put together "house divided" outfits...thing is that Furman's colors are purple and white. Clemson's are orange, purple, and white. It will be hard to tell the Furman people from the Clemson people.

I think there is an old FU t-shirt up in his closet.  I KID you NOT!  FU for Furman University. Furman, otherwise known as "The Country Club of the South" holds a special place in our hearts...the boy had four wonderful years there.

I'm feeling like a couple of ibuprofen and a nap.  What are you up to?


  1. I think that you are exactly right about the weather yesterday! Funny story, I saw a girl tailgating near us that looked just like your daughter so I went up and asked her if her mom was "Life of a Southern Belle"!

    1. Oh my goodness...that is so funny. Wouldn't it have been wild if it had been our baby girl?

  2. Hi! Just got around to reading old comments and saw that you had linked these shoes! So cute, I love them! xx

  3. Hi sweet friend!

    Those shoes are PERFECT for Clemson!
    Hope your birthday is extra special.

    I'm back to blogging! I might not post or visit as often as I used to, but I promise I'm back. Loved catching up with you.

    Life is so good for me right now. I'm loving life and going "full steam ahead", so time on the computer is limited.

Please makes me HAPPY!
