ROLL TIDE...Oh Sweet Memories

Happy Cold Weather...NOT

So tonight is the Alabama vs Texas game. Even though that Texas (the state not the University of Texas, I don't care for orange) has a special place in my heart I so hope Alabama wins. GO SEC.


When thinking of Alabama I am reminded of one of my most favorite road-trips while in college. My senior year a few friends and I decided to road-trip it to Tuscaloosa Alabama to watch UK play. It was October 2008 and it was so much fun, it was perfect weather for football and fun.

The trip was super fun and definately a top-5 college memory. In the spirit of the BCS Championship game I went through my digital photo albums and found some of my favorite pictures from the trip!

 We stopped at the rest-stop with the rocket in Huntsville, Alabama.
I took a picture in front of the sign but couldn't find it:(

Myself & Anne Katherine at a Mexican restaurant.
Terribly dirty, just look at the two-toned walls...ick

Such a pretty stadium...

The view from our AMAZING seats, we sat right behind the band!

Anne Katherine, Lauren, and Myself. GO BIG BLUE!

Even though that UK lost that day I left loving Alabama. I have no idea why because so many people have bad impressions/ negative connotations about the entire state of Alabama. I will say that the accommadations (sp?) in Tuscaloosa were somewhat lacking. If I were to go back I would probably make better hotel arrangements. This trip we stayed in a SUPER 8 Motel and let me say that there was nothing SUPER about the place. I took photos but I will spare you the gross details. Even though it wasn't 5-star or even 1-star I still like Alabama.  The BF grumbles because of the whole competitive sports thing, but I think he is secretly upset (totally joking...) that he didn't get to go.

Oh well, GO ALABAMA, I promise I will come back and visit you soon:)
Love, MKH
