According to Jeff on Facebook, I am officially his "ninth favorite person"
- Hey, I take what I can get! :)

Saturday morning we got up waaay too early and headed to Auburn for the Arkansas game. We were supposed to be going with my parents, but they were unable to go at the last minute. We enjoyed being back at Auburn, even if it was a pitiful loss. Is it weird that I get teary eyed when the eagle flies and the marching band plays the fight song during pregame???
We saw the new Cam Newton statue (a reminder of happier times for Auburn football)
and drove through downtown to see Toomer's corner. Makes me want to cry! For anyone who doesn't know - Toomer's Corner is an Auburn landmark, where fans roll the trees with toilet paper after a win. After Auburn beat Alabama 2 years ago, Harvey Updyke, a trashy Bammer, poisoned the trees. They used to look like this:
Anyway, we met up with my girl, Erin, after the game and did some true "tailgating"
Then, we made the 3.5 hour drive back to Mobile that evening. Yes, we are crazy!
Sunday night, we headed back downtown for the last night of Bayfest. We watched most of the Grace Potter & the Nocturnals show,

Then, Holly and I headed over to another stage to catch the end of the Luke Bryan show. Perfect timing to catch him dancing to "Country Girl" :)
We had a wonderful time with wonderful friends, but it is taking me a few days to recuperate!
