Thanksgiving Vacation (sort of)

Wow… I feel like Thanksgiving is supposed to be the one holiday that does not require much more than eating big and taking it easy. Not so much the style for our Thanksgiving. Between Ryan and myself, we had four Thanksgiving Dinners to attend and on top of that everyone was in town for the holiday, so when we weren’t hanging with the fam we were hitting the town with friends.

On the Friday after Thanksgiving we packed up our tailgating gear and headed to Auburn, AL for the Iron Bowl. No shopping for us- we had bigger fish to fry. For those of you not from Alabama the Iron Bowl is the big football rivalry between to two SEC Colleges in the state, Auburn University (whoo hoo) and the University of Alabama.
We had several hours to tailgate prior to the game, which, as always, was a lot of fun!

Then it was game time. I won’t recap the game, but Auburn dominated the #2 team in the nation for the majority of the game, but couldn’t hold on the lead in the last quarter. According to Ryan, a loss is a loss and it doesn’t matter what the team did during the game- it’s the outcome that matters…and I quote “there is no such thing as a moral victory- we lost and that’s that.”

So the game didn’t turn out quite like we would have liked, but it was a great holiday weekend all the same. We got to spend some good quality time with both family and friends. We were on the go the entire break... I now need a vaction to recover from my holiday vaction!
