A LOT of Orange

Lots & lots of Orange this weekend!  KJ had a vball tournament this weekend (I missed the 4 PM game -- I mean, seriously??  Who schedules a vball game for 4 PM on a Friday??).  The won their 4 PM game (match?  set?  I still have no idea what the correct terminology is!) but lost their 6 PM.  She stayed with friends on Saturday while the rest of us headed to Oxford which was probably a good thing.  It was a late game and turned out to be a very long day. 

I tried to keep up with the Hoover homecoming game via Twitter while I was at vball Friday night but when I saw that it was 33-0 with 3 minutes still to go in the FIRST QUARTER, I stopped checking.  As I said in an earlier post, no matter the conference or division, Hoover will run over their opponent. 

We had another great weekend at Ole Miss.  The Grove was nuts.  Totally nuts.  Wall to wall people, tents as far as the eye can see.  Lots and lots of burnt orange (when Ole Miss played Central Arkansas, you only saw a handful of purple).  The Texas fans were fun and I think they had a good time in Oxford.  Never did get to see Matthew Mc but Betty White got the crowd pumped with a great "Are You Ready" and the student section was pumping the entire game.  G & I had fun walking around the Grove (you never know who/what you'll see!) and Sorority Row (Phi Mu & KD had great signs too but I can't get them to load properly). 


It was wonderful to spend some quality time with T.  We had a great brunch with her and enjoyed catching up.  She texts and calls regularly but there's nothing like face-to-face and hugs.

LOVE the pics of sorority gameday signs. I was/am a ZTA at UGA and loved gamedays when I was in college. Greek life was always so much fun!

Did you see the thank you letter Burnt Orange Nation published about their visit to Ole Miss? It's pretty sweet!

Thanks so much for joining our link-up again!!
