Brian and I both graduated from Mississippi State way back in 2003 and we had to opportunity to take our 3 kids up to the campus on Friday night for the homecoming parade, pep rally, and family fun. We were fortunate to have season tickets for a few years after we graduated, but we haven't been to a game in about 3 years and we have seriously missed the excitement of Mississippi State football. Our school has not always been known for it's awesome football team, so it's really saying something when I say that I have literally been a DIE HARD MSU fan my entire life. (Mainly because my daddy would have kicked me out the front door if I ever dared mentioned the word "ole miss" within earshot of him). The kids were so excited that they were going to get to see Bully, the cheerleaders and the band. Mackenlee is now obsessed with becoming a cheerleader when she is a grown-up. I personally think she would be a cute one! Just look how much she adores Bully! We collected lots of beads, to the extent where I questioned if we were at MSU or at Mardi Gras, ran around in the Junction, cheered with the cheerleaders and the football players, and then went to Abner's to eat dinner. It was a great night and we all had a lot of fun. It is amazing how much the city has grown since we were there just 7 years ago. Mackenlee left begging to go to the football game. I am so happy that my baby girl is so interested in my football team!
Oh, and I almost left out the best part!!! I got to meet and take a picture with our head coach, Dan Mullen! It was the highlight of my night! We ended up winning the football game Saturday night, but it was a close one. The one thing our Bulldogs know how to do is keep their fans on their toes. Our team has been pretty good this year, with us being nationally ranked (#24) after last weeks amazing win against Florida! We are now 6-2 and that is an awesome thing, because we haven't been that in a LONG time! Way to go Dawgs!!
