Sunday Social | goodbye to summer (FINALLY!!!!!)

This weekend has been SUPERFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS for one very important reason: FOOTBALL. That’s right, it’s time to let the pigskin fly. I asked Husband if we could crank down the A/C to just below freezing so I could wear my hoodie, but he said no.

Some highlights from the weekend so far:

  • The local high school football team (that, as far as I know, has never had won a winning record) won their season-opener Friday night
  • Allen I.S.D. (northeast of Dallas) began their season in the brand-new $60-million stadium and made the *NATIONAL* news
  • My beloved *COLLEGE* football season began this weekend. As an SEC fan, I loved watching Alabama beat Michigan at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. ROLLLLLL TIDE!!!!!!
  • I hope ESPN airs the Kentucky and Louisville (The Governor’s Cup) game later today. Regardless, I’m *PROUDLY* wearing my Kentucky shirt.

It’s time for another Sunday Social, a link-up hosted by Ashley and Neely. This week’s questions are all about saying goodbye (ADIOS!!!!!) to summertime. I couldn’t be more excited to see this time of year pack its bags and leave town. The longer I live in Texas, the more I dislike hot weather. But then again, global warming is causing icebergs near Antarctica to melt!!!!!

Sunday Social

What was your favorite trip/vacation/activity this summer?

You can read all about my D.C. adventures here ….. here ….. here ….. here ….. and here.

I also went to Kentucky. I helped in the garden, made tomato juice, shot a high-powered sniper rifle exceptionally well, spent quality time with several important people, attended a family reunion, and reconnected with high school classmates at our 10-year reunion. I haven’t had a chance to download all of the pictures from this trip, but I promise to do that sooner, rather than later!

 Your favorite outfit look of the summer and/or clothing item is …

I will make this real simple for y’all: t-shirts, shorts, and flip flops. If I’m at home, I’m barefoot. I hate clothes, moving on to the next question.

What is one thing you wish you had gotten to do this summer?

I have no complaints about this summer. It’s been incredibly busy, yet I’ve had lots of time to relax and be lazy at home alone too. There are no items I wish I had done but there are lots of things I *SHOULD* have done: clean my car inside and out, de-clutter my closet, clear the utility room, and home decor projects.

Your favorite song of the summer is ….

No question about this, it’s “Pontoon” by Little Big Town. The tune, the lyrics, I love everything about it. MMMMMMMotor-boatin’!!!!!

PONTOON ~ Little Big Town (2012)

Your favorite movie of the summer is ….

I did not see any movie this summer that made me skirt fly up. I have a feeling that most of you are expecting me to say that movie with Matthew McHottness and Tatum Channing (or is it Channing Tatum? I still don’t know that guy’s name.). If you have not read my review, please click HERE.

Ok, serious question, what’s that movie’s title? I’ve done forgot it.

(thinking …… thinking ….. thinking)

Oh, Magic Mike.DUH!!!!!!!

Yeah, not so magical for me, but please, PUH-LEEZE read my review of *MAGIC MIKE*. I liked a scene or two and they all involved loud music and semi-nude men dancing and thrusting their hips provocatively. I could have saved myself nine-dollars by replaying YouTube video clips over and over ….. and over …… and over. History repeated itself here: the book is better. I read the 50 Shades Trilogy at least a dozen times this summer, now *THAT*  was magical.

Your favorite TV show of the summer is ….

I’m a fan of The Real Housewives of (Anywhere) and I will stay up wayyyyy past any human’s appropriate bedtime to catch re-runs of Chopped on the Food Network. I’ve seen them all, and still mesmerized by the dishes those chefs create on a whim and a prayer. Kumquats and pickled chicken’s feet, anyone? I said kumquats. I make myself laugh.

Happy Sunday!!!!!!

      Hi Nicholl, and welcome to my blog. Thanks for stopping by. I’m visiting your blog and left you a comment. Gotta love the SEC …… I’m ready for the UK/Louisville game to begin. That ‘Bama game last night was a doozie, complete domination and proof that, in the South, we mean business on the football field. Happy Sunday. Big hugs! =)

    If you like Chopped, you would like MasterChef. Have you seen it?

      Hi Veronica. I think I’ve seen MasterChef a couple of times when it first appeared. That’s with Gordon Ramsey and the big tall guy, right?! I’m also a HUGE fan of TopChef. In fact, I love just about every show on Bravo. I would cry if that channel was gone. Have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a very happy Sunday!!!!
