Welcome to SEC Country! There isn't a better way to spend time with over 92,000 of your best friends, then spending it at Sanford Stadium. Football weekend starts with a pep rally Friday night at 7:00P.M., tailgating starts Saturday morning at 8:00A.M., and kickoff is at 6:45P.M. I love football!!!!

Q U I L T . S P O T

I made a quilt blog! I hope you all can check it out. It's basically a place where I can post the quilts that I'm working on and that I like. Also, it satisfies some of my blogging addiction to have another blog to play around with. Maybe someone will find the blog and want to buy a quilt from me. Anywho... check it out!

What's Up?

Ok, here is a pile of Zibby's hair. I (Brooks) brushed him for a half an hour and that is what I got off. The thing is, I could have kept going!!
The rest are a bunch of pictures that we took on our trip to Logan. Bonny's brother got married, and it was really fun to be there and see them. While in Utah Bonny got a hair cut, isn't it cute. I didn't think that I would like it at first, but I was wrong, I love it! There are some more pictures of the wedding, one of them is a picture of Bonny's grandfather and I shootin' the breeze.
We also got to hang out with my sister Tara, and their new baby Siena. It was great to be home, but I am glad we are home, and I am back in school.

This is Robert and Heidi with all of the little nieces & nephews/cousins. Getting this picture taken was a riot. I love the way Cooper had to stand right in front of Kiran and how Millie is holding the boquet with the biggest smile on her face.

Bonny's haircut. This picture sure doesn't do it justice.

Robert & Heidi coming out of the temple after their ceremony. So happy!

Cooper loves that homemade rootbeer!

Brooks and Grandpa Llewellyn having a long discussion on banking and loans.

Brooks holding his baby Niece Siena. We were so glad to get to see her finally!

This is weird but today I was bouncing around between blogs and landed on a blog of apregnant woman in California. She was talking about alternatives to disposable diapers...she's environmentally friendly. She talked about g-diapers and I checked them out. It's a pretty cool concept although I'm not sure how affordable it is.

gDiapers consist of a washable, cotton outer pant and a plastic free flushable refill. They are made of breathable material just like sports clothing. So, babies stay dry and happy and are far less likely to get diaper rash.

Pretty cool concept...and they're pretty cute. (These pictures are of the bum-side.) So I want to hear what all you mom's think...cuz I know that diapers are a huge expense and I figure that these cost much more than regular disposables. I guess it depends on how much of a tree hugger you are. Global warming anyone?

Honestly I Expected Worse

Tybee Island

We took a trip to Savannah for a weekend with some of Brooks' friends from the MBA program.

We stayed at a condo on the beach at Tybee Island. Tybee is about 20 minutes east of Savannah right on the Atlantic.

This is my niece Millie singing the song of all the states in the U.S. It's a song I remember learning when I was probably in 4th grade. Well....Millie is about 3 and a half years old! This is awesome! (don't forget to pause the music player!)

Well we finally have internet at home, and it is great! Now we will be able to update our blog regularly, so I suggest you all check back often.

This first picture is of a Bulldog statute. These things are all over the place around Athens, and I have taken it upon myself to find each one and take a picture of it, only 40 more to go.

This next one is the world's only double barrel cannon. This cannon dates back to the civil war, when UGA was used as an armory. They made this cannon, but it didn't work too well. The cannon balls would come out crooked and throw off the trajectory. Anyway the cannon sits just outside of city hall, and just in case you all were wondering it DOES point North. So if any of you Yankees want a piece of us you will have to deal with the cannon.

Here I am with the cannon. Since Bonny is working now, I have to take pictures of myself.

This is some bell that sits outside of some church downtown. I don't know if there is anything special about it, but I am sure there is. Maybe it's the Liberty Bell's twin brother.

Coming Wednesday

We finally have internet access at home....on Wednesday! We also have a home phone line which will be so nice. Forget about asking for it cuz I'm not giving it out online :)

Also, I started a job today. I am working in the MBA admissions office. It's basically an admin assistant job....making a lot less than you're thinking. It's fine for now. We will have insurance and it's pretty convenient to be at UGA and so close to where Brooks is.

Come Wednesday our site will get some major attention. I'm talking photos, links, music, video... you name it, we've got it! ha ha.

Whats a little humidity?

Lately I've been going on walks "around the block" with my neighbors in the mornings. The block actually comes out to be one mile and we do it twice. It sure feels like more than that...They each have two kids and push strollers and I have Zibby to pull me along. It's probably not such a good idea to go walking around 10:30 am here in GA....lately the weather has been between 80 and 90 degrees (which isn't too bad except...) and over 90% humidity! It's just, sticky!

Temp jobs...

I've been temping through an agency called Randstad. It's a good thing temp jobs are temp(orary). If you're ever looking for a self esteem boost, go work at a temp agency. Every company I've tempted at thinks I'm awesome when all I really do is type fast, copy fast, and organize filing cabinets fast. Little do they know that I can blog and temp at the same time and still impress them!
