Wofford Weekend @ Georgia Southern

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!
