UNC Football (VIP Style)

My company sponsored the football game Saturday in Chapel Hill and I manage our sponsorship, so I get a few perks now and then. Along with some great BBQ and hushpuppies, we also received VIP tickets to sit in one of the suites to watch the game. We were actually sitting right behind Woody Durham (The Voice of the Tar Heels) and the whole on-air team for the Tar Heel Sports Network.

Some highlights from the day:

  • I asked the guys at Tar Heel Sports if they could find something special for my little guy and they gave him an official UNC Nike jersey in his size. He was truly in heaven.

  • Hubs sported a UNC hat the entire afternoon and even said he was impressed with how nice every was and how everything was so organized and well-run (vs. the typical Duke events he's been accustomed too - how can you even compare????)

  • Coach Roy Williams came up to my little guy and said "Hey Bigman" and then shook his hand. I didn't have my camera out and it all happened so fast. My little man totally didn't understand why mommie was squealing after-the-fact.

  • I climbed the bell tower for the first time ever (and my shins were KILLING me yesterday from all those stairs).

  • Everything, including the sprinkles on little guy's ice cream, was Carolina blue...and I absolutely LOVED IT!!!!

  • and...we won the game!


  1. So much fun! Great pictures. My husband would def. be jealous. Go Heels!

  2. Lucky, lucky! Looks like a fun time and your son will understand your squealing over Roy Williams one day :) Have a great week!

  3. It's really hard to go back to the stands after you've been in one of the boxes!

  9. Ah! One doesn't choose to be a Carolina fan, one is chosen from Blue Heaven! Go Heels!

  10. How fun!!! your little one looks precious in his jersey!!!

  11. Any Saturday spent in "God's country" is truly a good day! LOL! Glad you enjoyed your time there! Nothing could be finer than being in Blue Heaven for Carolina football!

  12. We opted for State/Duke assuming it would be more action... shame on me, I know. Guess that's what I get. We'll be back in Tarheel town next, I'm sure. Maybe the home team won't get beat!

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people?

It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from. has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards.

Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths.

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
