The weekend of October 13th was so far the best football weekend yet!!
Kelly came down on Friday night and her and I had a “sleepover”. We went to Mexican, drank margaritas and talked about boys. It was nice to talk to a non-married/child bearing women. We ended up cooking all night also. We baked meatballs, blended together her “famous” salsa, made a caramel apple dessert and the best item yet... CHOCOLATE CHIP and BACON cookies. It was a great “girls night” and exactly what we both needed!!
On Saturday we went down to the game. Tailgated with the GSU group. The cookies were the biggest hit. I think it was more shocking then anything else that there was bacon in them. I was a little disappointed that I was not able to taste as much bacon as I wanted, but it was cool. It was a good treat and something new to try.
It was Military Appreciation weekend at the GSU game. Georgia Southern used a Nike pro-combat" uniform which was blue and white camo. The University also had the Army parachute team "jump" with the game ball. It was one of the coolest thing's I have seen. I have never seen the jumpers that close. I absolutely love what GSU does for military appreciation.

The actually game ended up watched one of the best football games I have seen in a while. The weather was perfect, not to hot but not to chilly for a long-sleeved shirt. It was a little to close for my liking but I guess a win is a win. With this win Georgia Southern is now #1 in our conference and as you can see Ms. Ava is very happy about that and is great for us and play-offs. We have two more big games the next 2 weekends against Furman and App State. Then our fate will be decided November 3rd when we play app state in Statesboro.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday!
