Friday Night Lights

Being in Texas, I've learned a few things. In no particular order they are:

1. Texans are super friendly, no lie. Southern hospitality is real y'all! BUT it gets annoying when people are so nice that they actually cause accidents waiting for people to make their exit from a parking spot. Move it or lose it folks!

2. Everything is bigger Texas. Again, we heard this before we arrived, but we kind of laughed at the stereotype. Nope. Again, very true. From houses, to hair, to smiles, to...well you-name-it. It's bigger here:) Bigger is better, right?

3. Football is not to be taken lightly. Not on any level. I didn't realize the show Friday Night Lights was a docu-drama. I stand corrected. My weekends now consist of football, football, and wait for it...more football:) But you won't hear me complain! I am loving it - in fact I nearly lost my voice at two of the three games I've been to so far!

With Matthew being a Senior on the Kingwood Park's varsity football team, I clearly won't be missing a game:) Here's a few snapshots from the games so far - enjoy!

The stadium:

This is how they start off the game - I had never seen a high-school team that had one of these, but like I said, they're intense here:)

Matthew is 48:

The field:

Matthew being all cute:

Matthew and his coach:

Last but not least - Miss Em and me at the last game, note the outfit change:) I only grabbed a pic in the beginning... the game was too good to be spent taking pictures, though now I kind of regret it because it was pretty spectacular. Matthew had a killer tackle that started off the game!

Living in Georgia I know all about football-it is intense for sure but fun! I love the hair also :-)

WOW! that is seriously intense! How fun to have a brother play in them!! It's probably so easy to get into it when everyone else is :)

LOVE your hair. Cannot believe we both went dark and bangs :) i LOVE it on you - it's a keeper!
