Gamecocks vs. Tigers (the Clemson kind)

Can y'all believe that the regular season for college football is OVER? I anticipate its arrival at the end of the summer and dread its ending at the end of the year. Sadly, my Gamecocks will not be in the SEC Championship this year thanks to those damn Georgia Bulldogs (who we beat by the way, but whatevs) I wish the Dawgs all the luck in the world and all I have to say is GEAUX TIGERS! (the LSU kind)

This past weekend was rivalry weekend for college football and it was not different here in South Carolina and in my household. On Saturday, we packed up the car and headed down to Williams-Brice to see my Gamecocks take on my husband's Clemson Tigers. I continuously try to convince him that he should go ahead and switch to being a Carolina fan since our children will obviously be Carolina fans but he hasn't made the switch quite yet. It was an AMAZING game where the Gamecocks showed those Tigers what it's like to play SEC teams. We beat the Tigers 34-13 and it marked the 3rd year in a row we had won the Battle of the Palmetto State. It also marked the 2nd time that the Gamecocks had a 10 win season. Now, we'll wait to see where my Gamecocks are headed for bowl season. I'm crossing my fingers for Florida because I would surely love an after-Christmas DisneyWorld trip.

I'm linking up with the Belles of Saturday to bring y'all my tailgating pictures from Saturday. Go Cocks!

Monday Pinspiration

Hopefully Raleigh-Pug behaves himself this Thanksgiving. Last year his behavior was questionable at best...

My friend Kristin is confused. She thinks that Robert Pattinson is her fake celebrity boyfriend, but in actuality he's mine. Obviously I am more dedicated to him as I was in the movie theater at midnight Thursday (but had to get there at 11:00pm), sat through a fire alarm going off (where not a SINGLE person in the theater got up to move; thankfully it was only burnt popcorn) and was up until 2:30 in the morning watching my FCB in his latest movie. I hope this won't hurt Rob's feelings, but he's not my only FCB. There are many men that have the privilege of being given that prestigious title. Who are your FCB's?

Eff, Marry, Kill

I have been anxiously awaiting the return of this game.
<span class=

After scouring my brain for what three men I will be deciding from, I had a light bulb go off. OF COURSE! I'll do the 3 dads from Three Men & A Baby (and Three Men & A Little Lady) What girl my age doesn't LOVE these movies?? So here are my choices for my link up with The Vintage Apple

Eff: Jack Holden (Ted Danson)
Sure, he's a little irritating, but just for one night. And he's funny. Obviously many forms of birth control would be used as we know he is proficient at making babies.

Marry: Peter Mitchell (Tom Selleck)
He's caring, attractive, has a good job. Sure, there's that thick creepy mustache, but I think I could get over it. Or maybe he would shave it for me?

Kill: Michael Kellam (Steve Guttenberg)
Yeah, so he can draw. That's awesome. Maybe I'd get him to draw me a picture before I said bye bye.

15 Years

This past Saturday, my chapter of Kappa Delta celebrated their 15th Year. (Today is the actually anniversary date, 11/16) Zeta Sigma also is the chapter which I volunteer for as an advisor. It was wonderful to see some women that I was initiated with as well as some other ladies that were members before I was. Let's take a look back at my days in Zeta Sigma.

And here are a couple of shots from this weekend's anniversary luncheon. One with 2 of my pledge sisters and another with my cousin who I was able to initiate the year after I graduated college into my initiating chapter. Such a special family bond to share.

Pinnable Me: Service

On this day, 11-11-11, I am thankful for our service men and women who so bravely serve our country so that we may still live in the land of the free. Today, is also my granddaddy's birthday which is appropriate as he is not only a great man but also a veteran.

What I Wore Wednesday

My sweet friend Kristin had a great suggestion yesterday after I texted her a picture of my outfit of the day. She said "Brittany, you should do What I Wore Wednesday on your blog"! Why yes, I think that may be a great idea. A couple of things first:

1. Don't pay attention to my bitch face in this picture, I was sick. (which became apparent later when I was throwing up in the bathroom at my office, yuck)

2. This isn't technically my outfit from Wednesday, it was Tuesday and well I'm sick so today's outfit isn't as cute.

3. I usually put on some form of jewelry other than my staples (diamond earrings, wedding rings, ring from 1 year anniversary) but I was running late to work because this sickness made it hard to get up out of my bed

4. I promise to eventually take real pictures, not iPhone ones.

5. Yes, I'm in my parent's gym...again...not exercising but taking pictures of my outfit.

Top - J.Crew (not available in same color and only in large sizes in other colors)
Skirt - J.Crew (similar)
Shoes - Kohl's
Sunglasses - Ray-Ban
Bag - Le Louis

Shopping Sunday

I can't breath. And I'm sitting in my living room looking beautiful watching Sunday football and hoping that my fantasy team can pull out a win for the 7th week in a row. I'm in 1st place in our league with my husband and his friends and one other wife. I'm kinda a big deal.

I need to get on making my Christmas list for my parents and husband. My parents have a due date (Thanksgiving Day) for our lists. I always tend to wait until the last minute but here are some things I'm currently wanting. (Seriously Tory Burch, re-release the Selma's already. You said you were in December...)
