Home at last

I'm here and boy am I tired. I honestly don't think I've been this tired in a long time... maybe when I had a newborn I was this tired.
Why am up blogging right now? Because I have to update my blog for my granny. :)
So here goes... last Thursday we left Oklahoma for a Texas tour. We stopped in the Big D for dinner with my mom and brother. It was a nice dinner. Then we headed to East Texas to drop Grace off with Adam's parents for the weekend. We didn't get there there till 10 so we went straight to bed. Unfortunately our alarm clock (AKA: Grace) got up early around 7. We brought Grace up to mother-in-laws school where she teaches and up to my father in laws work to show her off. She was a big hit in her new squeeker shoes. (I'll post about her shoes later... they are soooo stinkin' cute!).
Then after lunch we left our baby girl in good hands and headed to College Station, TX for a good 'ole Aggie football game. My uncle is Bob DeBesse... he is the wide receiver coach for A&M so we stayed at their house and hung out with all the other coaches wives and families. Friday night was hanging out while eating pizza! DOUBLE DAVES... yum!!
Then Saturday we headed to a tent sale where I managed to spend over $100 on Aggie gear. We don't get to Aggieland very often so I had to stock up. I got the cutest shirt for Grace that says "Aggie Chick"! I'll post a picture as soon I get one. We had lunch with some other friends that came into town for the game at the Chicken Oil. Double yum... but I forgot to order cheese fries, so I was craving them the rest of the day. Then off to TAILGATE! We tailgated with my family and all their Aggie friends. It was just so nice to hang out with my Aunt and cousins that I don't get to see very often. And finally the game. OH MAN. If you missed the Aggie game vs. OSU on Saturday night you missed an AWESOME game. The first half was boring for us since we were loosing by 17 points at the half, but then the Aggies decided to play some football. We ended up coming back and winning 24-23. It came down to the last couple minutes! What an emotional game. After the game we went to the Fox and the Hound (the only place that wasn't super busy or smokey), ate and hung out for a bit. Didn't get in till around 1:30 and didn't get to bed till about 2.
What were we thinking?? I'm a HUGE sleeper. I need a good 9 hours to function. But we had to get up at 9 to start driving to get Grace. And since I had to work today and since Adam is away on business for the week it has totally caught up with me and I'm tired. So I think I'm going to head to bed.
Here is a random assortment of pictures from the weekend. ENJOY!

My cousins and I. (Kaila (left) is a freshman at A&M and Brittany (right) is a junior at Purdue). Why did no one tell me to take my sunglasses off?? John and Sarah and with Adam and I. John was one of Adam's roommates in college.
Adam and I on the field before the game. (A perk of being family of a coach).
My friend Katie and I! Notice she gets to drink beer and see my water on the table! I would love a nice cold margarita!
Lane - He was the star player!! I just took a picture of him in the locker room stretching before the game. He is a HUGE guy... at least three times my size!

OH and Grace had a good weekend with Mema and PopPop. She got to eat lots of yummy food and got LOTS of attention! Like she isn't spoiled enough :)

Some days I really miss good ol BCS!! My kids (students) wanted me to go down and visit this weekend, but I didn't think I would know anyone there. So sad. I totally would have gone and drank one for you. ;)
You & Adam look great. Grace is as cute as ever, too.

Glad you had a great weekend. I am super jealous you got to be at the game.

We're not as lucky to get to be family of a coach so we were excited when my 9 year old brother got to go on the field after the game!
