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!

  4. Great pics! Nothing beats a Saturday afternoon at your favorite team's stadium!

  5. love your pictures!! Sounds like an awesome day! How cute is that jersey?!?! Hope your having a great Monday! = )

  6. I think this is fabulous and you know it's hard for me to say this.

  8. Wow. Great pics! Looks like you guys had fun. :)

  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!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

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'…
