Fall is Upon Us

GM: Every year around this time something happens in our house. It's called college football. Matt & I both get a little excited about college football & specifically our teams. You see, we each cheer on different teams. Matt is an Arkansas Razorback (unranked) fan & I am an Alabama Crimson Tide (preseason #5) fan. Which to most married couple is no big deal. But to us, two avid fans of two different SEC teams, this is a big deal. All kinds of trash talk & making fun of every facet of the other's football program goes flying through our house. We love the banter & have so much fun with it.
The thing about the way it generally is around here is that I just happen to be the one who dresses Hazel on a daily basis. So, despite numerous Razorback apparel hanging in her closet due to the little fact that we live in Fayetteville, AR, you can see below what she ended up wearing last Saturday. We sang the Bama fight song & said ROLLLLL TIDDDEEEE all day & it was a blast!

Absolutely darling!


My hubby went to USC and my college didn't have a football team so I adopted his. Wish we could banter back and forth -- sounds fun!

Hugs,

And you forgot to mention you grew up in Louisiana and most of your family is die hard LSU fans. Throw that in the mix and it gets very complicated! Arkansas is bad enough but did you have to put sweet little Hazel in Bama?

Adorable post! Hubby and I are seriously contemplating moving to Alabama and are already teaching the kids "Rollll Tiddeee". BTW, my oldest son thinks Hazel is just the cutest thing ever and loves seeing new pictures of her. He's told me that "Eliot is lucky to have such a cute little sister".

I understand your "stress". We, too, are a house-divided. Two of us cheer for Arkansas and two for LSU.

It's all in good fun though.
