Good morning ya'll!
Man, have I missed sitting down at my keyboard and pounding out a blog post, sadly life got in the way for awhile, but I am back now.
So what's been going on with my life since I last posted a real post on August 10?
I cut off my hair. Like 12" of my hair, and gave it to Locks of Love to help make wigs for cancer patients.
|me and my freakin' awesome hairstylist Renee, and yes that is my hair in my hand.|
On Aug. 21, we hit up Meet the Pirates, an annual event where families can come out to Dowdy-Ficklen stadium to enjoy some inflatable ride things, get autographs from the players, score some Pirate swag and meet Coach Ruff. Josh's cousin Michelle and her son Wallace also came with so Sawyer and Wallace could have some cousin bonding time.
|waiting in line to go in.. I think Sawyer had just caught a glimpse of John John in the parking lot, hence the smile|

Sadly, it didn't go very well. Sawyer was NOT about a stroller and also didn't want to be held, ride on his daddy's shoulders or have his hand held... needless to say he was cranky and we got crankier the longer we had to chase him around the stadium. On a brighter note, I think we have a running back on our hands because that little dude ran on those little short legs from the 50 to the 10 like it was nothing.

It was also incredibly warm, Sawbug's little face was so flushed. He apparently got so hot he decided he didn't mind the stroller after all and spent a little time in Wallace's.
But, we did get some good pictures of Sawyer enjoying the Pirates!

|great to see that awesome score board again|
|you know he's ill when he won't even pretend to smile|

Other than that, life has been pretty dull, but it won't be much longer since ECU FOOTBALL SEASON STARTS THIS SATURDAY with a home game against App State. I am so beyond excited. My twitter feed has of course been eaten up with Pirate news (sorry if you're not a fan). But I just cannot wait for tailgating to begin.
Since the game starts at 12noon, I will be making some breakfast casserole and biscuits for the tailgate. Prepare yourself for tailgate pics and posts! Here's just a little something awesome to leave you with..
