Hello friends and Carolina fans!!! I just want to brag for a second and make it known that I was in the swamp to take part in history this past Saturday! A group of us went down to Gainesville, Florida for the weekend for the South Carolina verses Florida game that determined the SEC East Champs! We had a great weekend, a wonderful time. We tailgated all day Saturday, played some corn hole and football and ate some good food and then we walked on into the swamp! It started out with a Florida touch down with the opening kickoff but from there it was downhill for the gators and uphill for my South Carolina Gamecocks! It was so great and we had a blast! We wouldn't leave the stadium, we stayed there celebrating long after the gator fans were gone celebrating with our SEC EAST CHAMPS!!! There wasn't many gator fans left, only a few, most left before the fourth quarter even started. So to all of you out there who knock on Carolina when the stands begin to empty, it happens everywhere, including national champs and not so national champs like clemson... anyways, after we celebrated in the stadium we began to exit the stadium with a whirl of Gamecock fans just straight up taking over the swamp and taking over the town. It was SOOO GREAT!!! :) We went back to our tailgating spot, celebrated some more with more great friends, and, caught the end of the clemson/Florida State game with about fifty other Carolina fans. Here we cheered on Florida State with the good ole tomahawk chop! Oh, it was so much fun! Then to top off the night clemson lost! We finished our Saturday with a pizza delivery and went on to bed feeling like champs! The next morning we got up and made the 7.5 hour drive back to the wonderful state of smiling faces and beautiful places! It was the best weekend!

So friends, I was reading Jessie's blog over at "Keep It Together" and I saw where everyday in November she was signing on and blogging something different she was thankful for! I do realize I am about 8 days late, but, I will get caught up! So... I'm stealing this from you Jessie.. I hope you don't mind!
In honor of November and the month when we celebrate Thanksgiving, I will list something, well 8 somethings today, every day from today through the end of November! I am obviously thankful for a lot, and too many times I just take it all for granted. So this will give me the chance to sit in awe and realize how truly blessed I am.
November 1- I am thankful for Christ and what He did for all of YOU and Me on the cross.
November 2- I am thankful for prayer.
November 3- I am thankful for Caleb Aaron Thrower, my wonderful fiance!
November 4- I am thankful for my beautiful family, my momma, daddy, Corey, and Brittany. And of course, Krinkles too!
November 5- I am thankful for great Christian friends and hilarious movies like Due Date! :)
November 6- I am thankful for Columbia, SC and the University of South Carolina Gamecocks, win or lose.
November 7- I am thankful for an amazing church family.
November 8 (today)- I am thankful for the opportunity to go to school, as much as I strongly dislike it, I know it's all worth it in the end and there are many who will never have the chance.
Sorry, it's been a long time since I've last posted! I've gotten addicted to BlogFrog and been spending all my blogging time over there! You should check it out if you haven't already and join my community! ;) So... what's been going on in my life?
Well... a LOT! But, God still reigns and He is oh so good!
My fiance and I have had a past couple of gross weeks. Nothing with our relationship, just other stuff from the outside! But it's all good now and we trust in our Lord and know He will always provide.
My momma is back from her 2 week work trip to FL so it's time to get back on the wedding grind! Hooray! I've been having withdrawals! I have been working on a lot of stationary stuff, pictures will be up soon!
School is kicking my butt, if you've read any of my past blogs you would know I am enrolled in 3 different sciences this semester and spanish just trying to finish up my gen ed junk I've put off. But... I do student teach in the Spring and am sooo excited! I will be hearing about my placement here any day now! So ready!! I've been shopping a lot here lately and have gotten so much precious (but still indie) "teacher clothes!" I can't wait to wear them!!!
Halloween was great! I love fall and Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas.. and just all of it! As you can see I'm a little excited!! Ready to listen to my Christmas music and watch my favorite Christmas movies!!!
Coming up this weekend Caleb and I will be back in Cola to watch our Gamecocks beat the Razorbacks, we were there for the defeating of the terrible Tennessee Volunteers and will be there, will in Florida, next weekend to watch us take on some Gators!!! I love college football and love my Carolina Gamecocks!
Okay so that was a lot of rambling, but, just catching you up!!! Hopefully I can post again super duper soon! Until then.... PEACE! :) And God loves you!!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This may mean little to some and a lot to others. I do not have anyone in my biological family whom has been diagnosed with or affected by breast cancer but, I have many friends in Christ, great friends who have been. I've seen all that breast cancer controls, and, I've seen how our God truly controls more. He does overcome, He does have a reason, and He does take care of His people!
There are many ways to get involved, find a way, it's simple, you could do something that seems so small that ends up being so big to someone dealing with breast cancer! October isn't the only month you can do something, there is always something to be done. And all year long, no matter the season, pray. Pray for the survivors, the one's still battling, and the one's lost, the family and friends, and all affected by this awful disease and by any cancer or disease. It's never too late to pray!
so... this blog will be used to brag on my Gamecocks! Yes, I am a Gamecock fan! A HUGE Gamecock fan, born and raised, and now marrying the biggest Gamecock fan I know! Caleb was born in Columbia and his heart will always be with the South Carolina Gamecocks. We love our Gamecocks. We try to go to all the home football games and some away and however many basketball and baseball games we can make it to also! We love Columbia and we love the University of South Carolina! This past weeks game, when we played #1 Alabama at home, was the first game we couldn't get tickets to! For obvious reasons, people wanted to be in Williams Brice Stadium that day. That is one we count as missed, the most historical win in history, but we were there in "spirit" and we were rooting our Gamecocks on all the way at our own party! I am so proud of my Gamecocks! They took on the #1 team in the nation! Bama WHO!?! We are now ranked #10 in the nation and will go on to play Kentucky this Saturday at Kentucky, we'll, of course, be having a party cheering our dudes on! If you're not a college football fan, I apologize if I bore you but this is something we love dearly! All college football too, all but Clemson! ;) We enjoy watching the games all weekend together and with other friends! There is just something about football, the fall, and this time of the year! It is GREAT!
