Then, the weather turned to mush and we missed Dapalooza IV (our friends AmanDA and DAvey's annual outdoor extravaganza) because we couldn't chance snow with a baby and my bad cold. This is one of my favorite events of the fall, so I was really sad to skip it this year... Especially later in the day when it turned out to be absolutely BEAUTIFUL outside. Go figure.
And, the GRAND FINALE to a horrible week... Clemson LOST Saturday night to Georgia Tech. UGG. We were 8-0 and #5 in the nation going into this game (I even had Jeff wearing Clemson garb and rooting for a National title this year). Apparently, the last time they were 8 -0 was in 2000 and they lost their 9th game to GT. Stink. Anyway, it was for no lack of spirit on our end... Here we are at my parent's "tailgating" before the game:
Thank goodness Clemson's color is orange so Sam could be festive for Halloween and the Tigers.
Apparently Poppy didn't get the memo about wearing orange... He also bad-mouthed Clemson all night. He might get kicked out of the family.
And, during the game... As you can see, even Sam was very stressed out about it.
Luckily, as weeks tend to do, it ended... And it's hard to be a Debbie Downer when you have a sweet little pumpkin at home celebrating his first Halloween tonight. :) My house is clean, laundry is (almost) caught up, pumpkin goodies are baked, Jeff's in town, the sun is shining, and we've got a lot of happy on the agenda...
P.S. And my computer magically started working again when I got to work this morning! Thanks God, glad to know you don't have it in for me this week too! ;)
