Aggies, Rebels and Mustaches

I would like to start this post by saying a few things:
1. I started this post Monday morning after driving in the car listening to football for 9 hours.
2. I promptly realized it sucked and decided to give it a better chance of not sucking when I got some of my whit back.
3. I do not feel like I fully woke up on Monday until 4th period. Sorry 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

So here we go... Weekend recap on Tuesday

This past weekend Reese and I travled to the one and only Oxford, MS. This is a trip we have done before, but this time I had a little more stake in the game. My dear Aggies were playing the Ole Miss Rebels. With good friends on both sides this was a cant-miss game for Reese and I!



So, lets talk about "The Grove" for a moment. These people know how to tailgate. It is one big mess of red and blue and ridiculous and wonderful.

Here is a little tale I can tell on the blog because you people wont think I am a crazy stalker.

I was walking around The Grove when a little group of kiddos came running across my path. One of the little girls got knocked down, she got up and toughed it out (thata girl sista). Well apparently I made some sassy comment about boys never changing or something like that. This guy in a tent right beside the incident said something to me... except I have NO CLUE what he said because I knew who he was... BECAUSE HIS GIRLFRIEND IS Rachel from Simple Little Joys.
PEOPLE... I recognized a guy from his girlfriends blog. 
So I awkwardly asked him if his name was Andrew ... although I knew it was cause Rachel is legit and I follow her on all forms of social media aka see pics of there cuteness all the time. 
And then proceed to go on some ramble about how I blog with his GF and see pictures of him all the time.
I'm embarrassing.
Thank God Reese wasn't with me at that moment... I might have been shuned.
(ps Breaking Amish anyone? Im obsessed)

Moral of the story.... If I ever am in the same town as where you live I will probably run into your significant other and awkwardly encounter them, because it has happened twice now( I wont tell you about the first time cause you'll probably stop reading forever).

Now back to your regularly scheduled I-was-supposed-to-post-this-monday post


Catherine, Reese's bestie from HS and a proud Rebel!


Reese and his Rebel bestie!


OOTD (better post coming soon!)

OH! Can we talk about the fact that it was 45 degrees and raining.
I only complained like 5 times... 5 time in 9 hours.
High Five for me...and my icicle feet!

I truely thought I was going to have a heart attack during this game.
High Five for our O-line... Kick in the Shin for our QB.
It was touch and go there for a little while but I am just glad A&M put some umph in the last two minutes and pulled out a win!

THE NATIONALLY FAMOUS FIGHTING TEXAS AGGIE BAND!!!
I heard an Ole Miss fan comment...man wasn't it enough they won the game... did they had to win half time too??
 GIG EM!
Stadium Food...BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos... YES please!
When in Rome... right? I seriously ate my weight in fried food covered in cheese this weekend... I didn't care... check back with me after my Tuesday workout... betcha I change my mind. 

So now... lets discuss the after game madness. 
This is Mustache the Band
I went to college for 4 years. I did the bar band scene. I saw some great acts. 
ALL OF THEM were dethroned by this band. EVERY LAST ONE. 

Mustache the Band is a 90's Country Tribute band. 
I don't think I have ever loved Alan Jackson more. 
I don't think I have ever missed my childhood more.
I don't think I have ever loved country music more. 
(I would like to point out that the lead singer is wearing a life jacket... circa 1992 Alan Jackson Chatahoochie music video)

Mustache the Band really grew on them...


I caught some of 'stache too. 

See, I told yall this post would be better when I had some sleep and my head wasn't clouded with all Reese's Fantasy football stats that he comment, repeated, and yelled about THE WHOLE WAY HOME from Mississippi... oops this I was suppressing that one. 

Happy Tuesday Yall

I have a lot to say. A LOT. So prepare yourself :)

1. I am still semi-freaking out that as I started reading this post that you texted me...BLOG BFF BRAIN WAVES strike again ;)

2. The fact that you had the guts to say something to Rachel's bf makes me love you even more than I did before.

3. That black lace top...GORG! Kinda looks like the dress I wore on Sunday night!

4. BBQ pulled pork nachos?! I can't even.

5. I just love the crap out of you!

:)

Britt @ The Magnolia Pair said...

I had bbq pork nachos this weekend too! We are twinsies! You look adorable in your game day attire, and I want your purse! It's adorable and just what I am looking for :) So glad you had such a great weekend!

Rachel said...

Well here we go...I'm about to write a book to you!
1) I love your outfit. SO cute. SO game day appropriate! You are precious.

2) I still can't believe you saw Andrew. I just cannot believe it. SO hilarious!!! He just thought it was the funniest thing in the world. What are the odds?! Makes me happy, even though I didn't get to see you! Glad you met Andrew :)

3) I LOVE that you had a good time in the Grove. I feel like when people come to Oxford, they're coming to my house and I really want them to enjoy themselves and have a good time. Oxford is my heart, so it makes me happy when I hear good things about the Grove and the Square and such.

4) Was Mustache at the Library? They are ALWAYS there on weekends and are always so fun...Andrew LOVES them and loves to make me dance to all of their songs.

5) PLEASE come back to Oxford soon so we can really meet! Or maybe I'll have to come to Texas next year :)

6) BBQ nachos? My favorite gameday snack.

First of all I think you're gorgeous! Seriously, you're beautiful! Second, don't you love how well the blogging community connects us?!!? Third, this sounds like a super fun weekend and I'm glad you got to get away :-)

tiff@thecoffeehouse said...

I agree with Darby. Gorgeous. Annnnd I agree that stadium food is simply amazing. And if you ever see Dan ... just run up and give him a big hug. Tell him I told you to.

That is so crazy that you recognized another blogger's boyfriend! Ahhhh! So funny! He must have tripped out.

Also, you are the most beautiful football game go-er I've ever seen. That skirt, that top, your leopard flats (R.I.P.), that necklace. GAH! Too gorgeous!

Love you, Meg!

Whitney said...
