Pavement

This weekend while visiting Carmen, my feet tripped over themselves and I hit the pavement. Hard.  First, nothing is broken.  Second, I am fine.  Bruised, scratched, and a little humiliated.  The girls had on heels…I was the one in sneakers trying to help them steady themselves over the stupid pavement.  So grateful that it wasn’t nothing worse.It happened early Saturday morning, and the above picture was the first night, still really swollen, and glasses scratched (badly).  Wrists, elbows, shoulders, nose and mouth (no loose teeth either) are tender, but my left knee is in some pain.  (The picture below is at home 36 hours later.)This picture is Sunday (about 30 hours later) at lunch (breakfast) at Louie’s in Baton Rouge (a must if you are in town).  We eat there whenever we are there.  Swelling is down, and starting to scab and heal.  Bruising is darkening, and my joints are hurting.And, now I am home…another bath with Epsom salts…and spare glasses are working fine.

Blessings.

Sunday Thoughts

Spending the weekend with baby girl in Baton Rouge, taking pictures for her college graduation.

This a one of the shots outside of her sorority house. She has made some incredible friendships here, and I am truly grateful God took her here. She found a purpose, plan and is focused on the future. Looking forward to see what the future has in store.

No matter what we may plan though, Gods plan is the best plan. I have been blessed with this amazing young lady.

Thoroughly blessed.

Pigs

Y’all know that there are times I am obsessed with pigs.  Well, apparently I am even more so when I am in Baton Rouge.

Visiting with Carmen, and going to the Razorback-LSU Baseball game was wonderful in itself.  Carmen took us to a restaurant that she and David had gone to before, that honestly, I thought was just a BBQ shack.img_4739I decided to give it a try, and fell in LOVE with it.  I love the atmosphere, staff, and the food was amazing!  We went to the City Pork Brasserie and Bar at the Jefferson Street location.They have these pigs hanging on their walls, and I seriously thought that they were wrought iron, and so wanted one.  So I asked if I could have one – sure for $20.  The picture below is what Carmen posted on her Snapchat of me after I got my pig!Just a tad bit excited!  But, can you blame me?!  We will make this a frequent place when we visit, and not just because of the chalk pig! And now she hangs above the kitchen table.  Not sure that I want to write on it…yet.  Love that pig!  (And, I have NO desire to collect pigs, but this one was special.) Now to work on the clutter on the table.

Blessings!

Free Seats – Baseball

LSU Baseball…again…my weekend with Carmen after my 5k Lucky Leprechaun that morning, drove for 5 hours, then dinner. Yes, we had to eat. Then we went to see if there were any seats left at the game.  Well, the rain helped for the empty seats, and the score did as well.  We got in for free, and seats at 3rd base.  Free seats weren’t bad at all.  We even made it on National TV – ESPN – David recorded it on his phone.  I am not sure why I am so wiggly…but Carmen and I make the same facial expressions. Yes she is mine, and I can’t deny it with this video!

We had a great time.  Home, bed, and then up for the Founder’s Day events on Saturday.  But first, selfies.Love her.

Blessings.

Marriage 

Part of being married is sharing, right?  I don’t mind sharing most things but when it comes to sharing a college, I normally don’t. 


Today LSU Baseball is playing in the super regional in Omaha.  The Razorbacks didn’t make it to the super regional, and being married to a LSU guy, I am supporting them.  Well, and Carmen is going there as well.  So being supportive of LSU isn’t that difficult really. So long as they aren’t playing my Razorbacks! Ha. 

Happy Saturday, and Gueax Tigers!

LSU & Baby Girl

This week is my Spring Break at the Northwest Florida State College.  I love being able to be off for both school and work.  I do have Math test on Monday when we return, but overall, I have the week off.


Catching up on appointments, the dentist, rheumatologist, and eye doctor all this week.  But…I also get to see Carmen at LSU.  I wasn’t able to move her in last summer (we went on a 50th birthday cruise), and haven’t had the opportunity until now.  I was able to go over on Tuesday, and come home today.

The main event of the trip was to go a LSU Men’s Baseball game on Wednesday evening.  I am all about LSU, Geaux Tigers! except when they play Arkansas.  You know that I LOVE my Razorbacks, win or lose, right?!  We had a great time, cold, but the best part was spending time with Carmen.

They lost in extra innings! 15 Innings to be exact. We got too cold and left after the 14th inning.  We did really try to stay but it was 11pm, and 48 degrees. Ugh. 

Love her.  Loved this time together.

Blessings.

Southern Girls and Football

NaBloPoMo 2012 – Day 10

I live in the panhandle of Florida in between Pensacola and Panama City.  Some people call it South Alabama, but I don’t.

But we are part of South East Conference in college football.  I say this because everyone here is a fan of either Florida, Alabama, Auburn (lots of those) or LSU.  I am a lonely girl by liking Arkansas.  I was raised twelve miles souteast from the University of Arkansas, and went there some.  (Partied there, more than anything.)

So, as far as I am concerned, Fall is football season.  We look forward to this time of year more than most. Which in itself really insane.  But most of the SEC fans are insane.  We have to be to do what we do on game days, or during the season.

My wonderful hubby is an alumni from LSU, and LSU and UofA (Arkansas not Alabama) have a game at the end of the season called the Boot Game.  I love it. We have more fun cheering on our teams. Hurts most of the time (especially this season), but we love each other and football.

Southern girls and football  I found this picture (quote) on Pinterest, and it is truth.

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday.
