I, for one, have been looking forward to this day for weeks now-GAME DAY. Woo hoo!
Tomorrow night...MSU vs. LSU....7 pm...Scott Field...GO STATE!!!
I don't know about you, but I'm optimistic this football season. We're so going to win tomorrow night.

Here he is loving on a big stuffed bear that my dad bought him. I'm a little freaked out by that giant bear, but Henry LOVES it!:)
He crawled over to my dad's baseball bat and starting "playing" with it. He knows how to make his daddy and grandaddy smile! :)
GO DAWGS!!! :)
He doesn't like to be still much these days, but I did manage to hold him long enough to have my picture taken with him.
Me and JR at Nana's after Sunday lunch.
So, I'm a little anxious to get this week started. I think it's going to be a good one for these particular reasons:
1. FIRST FOOTBALL GAME THIS THURSDAY NIGHT!!! WOO HOO!!! GO DAWGS!! (My outfit for the game is pretty cute too. :) )
3. Labor Day weekend is coming up and I'm headed to the beach, baby! :)
4. ALSO, the weather report says that it's not supposed to reach triple digits in temp. this week. KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED! Isn't it sad that we are to the point where we actually hope for 90 degree weather? Pathetic. I'm so ready for fall.
I hope YOU have a great week!

I can't get enough of Sugarland, which is ironic (or "ironical" if you will) because I didn't like them at all when I first heard them. After watching Jennifer Nettles perform on TV, though (she's the lead singer), I am now a fan. Am I the only person that thinks she's FABULOUS? I could definitely handle looking like her AND singing like her. Watch this video if you've never seen it. Even if you're NOT a country music lover (Heather- be open minded!), give her a chance...I guarantee you'll develop a "girl crush" on her just as I have.

Am I a bad mom?? :(

I wish that I were as good at writing poems as MSKS and Heather. They're constantly putting me to shame with their creativity. I hate you both right now.
1. She lived in the small town of Starkville nearly all of her life and still has trouble getting from point A to point B without getting a little turned around. She always manages to go the long way no matter WHERE she's going. Riding with her is always an adventure. :)

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for rain and MUCH cooler weather. I walked outside today just long enough to change a light bulb and it caused me to sweat. A LOT. I'm so not a fan of this!! PLEASE RAIN AND COOL THINGS OFF FOR US DOWN HERE!!!
On another note, tomorrow starts my first full week of school. I'm supposed to already be in bed because I'm determined to start my week off right...with plenty of sleep. I hope you all have a great Monday. Don't go outside unless you have to. It's just not worth it.
I'm going to bed now.

Anyway, come to find out, my mom had actually GIVEN MINE AWAY years ago to a lady who had a little girl who was also named Laura (this family moved away many many years ago). I of course told mom that obviously meant that she liked K and H more than she liked me (haha...I'm exaggerrating quite a bit!). Needless to say, I have NOT let my mom forget about this. I wanted my dress back.
WELL, the story doesn't end here, my friends. My mother, being the geniusly wonderful person that she is, actually got on the internet and somehow FOUND the email address of the woman with the dress. She emailed her, asked her if she still had the dress, and asked her to please MAIL IT so that she can give it back to me. Wow. (Note: the "other" Laura is in college now, so I'm pretty sure she's not still needing the dress). The lady actually FOUND the dress in her attic and mailed it to my mom. Mom showed up at my door yesterday afternoon with a package containing this precious little dress. My question is: how many people out there would go to ALL of this trouble to make their daughter's day? It really is one of the most thoughtful things that anybody's ever done for me. Seriously. I can tell you that I will keep that dress in a safe place, treasure it FOREVER, always remembering the fabulous story behind it. :) I love my mom.
Note to all mothers out there: be careful before you start giving away your child's things...you never know what kind of trouble it can get you in later in life! :)
I hope you have a fantastic 27th birthday! I'm sorry I couldn't come up with a poem for you like my lovely sister Heather did. We all know I'm not as creative as she is! I'm still your favorite though..no doubt. :) Yay for birthdays! Love you!
Claire, Mere, Sarah, and me
