Hoda mentioned this song on The Today Show one morning a couple of weeks ago and now Dave and I run around singing it all the time!
It's so upbeat and lifts your mood immediately!
It reminds me how loved I am - by so many!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Wake-Up time on game day is SUPER early, especially if tailgating AND Game Day is involved! Dave and I wanted to get everything set up on the Quad prior to heading out to the morning festivities so we could enjoy the lunch-time games when we got back! On our way out there, though, we noticed some other people s.u.p.e.r. excited about a day full of football!
While making our sign for Game Day, we got to see Saban... We think he was pretty excited about the day's game, too!
Special for our sweet friend who's moved so far away (not really that far, but far enough). We missed you Brooks, but we're glad you were up to see your sign!
It was Coach Bryant's birthday!!! (I was really excited about this picture until I realized the lady who took it had cut off his head. RATS!) ...Now we're getting closer to the cameras! Hey Austin, Can you see us yet?
You probably can't tell from this picture, but it was pouring down rain at this point... and it actually cooled things down a little. Oh, to be little again and play out in the rain.... Maybe... I dont think I ever actually did that. :(
Because it was SOO hot, we had opted out of carrying around rain gear with us. Instead, we made our own make-shift poncho's from garbage bags! Go ahead and laugh... but they were perfect! They kept us dry when it rained and when we decided to sit down! PERFECTION :)
We REALLY wished there had been some markers lying around so we could've made some cool spell-out or something! Maybe next time... :)
YAY for tailgating with The Gladden's TWO WEEKS in a row!
Special to The Gladden's: We had a blast! I hope there's many more fun games ahead!
Contrary to popular belief, there are times I forget to whip out my camera, and today happened to be one of them. Daddy had his camera with him for a good part of the day, just snapping away... so I kinda forgot to take some of our usual pics. But, I'll be sure to fetch a few good one's I know he took and get those on here! Until then, here are a few shots from the end of the game! Dave, Daddy, Ginger and I all sat in the student section and boy oh boy did we have fun! I was a little concerned in the beginning but all went well! We had L.O.T.S. of laughs and made a tons of memories - most of all getting to experience a fabulous Penn State game, coached by one of the greatest legends, ever (after The Bear, of course)!

...realizing that "I can not do it all", and yet having a wonderful support system to help me try!
Over the last four weeks of school, doing homework and HESI studying and being away from my family, I've come to realize just how much my Heavenly Father can nurture those needs I have to T.R.Y. and do it all! Over my time here at college, I've had to learn to rely more on Him than myself... and that's been hard, but TOTALLY humbling!
THREE WEEKS and counting... THREE WEEKS!
The Lord, Your God, is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with his love. He will rejoice over you with singing. --Zeph 3:17

To The Walk of Champions we went!
And then we felt like we needed to take a moment to relish in the glory of Nick Saban and where they are going to put a new statue of him in order to commemorate his National Championship victory!

... my Complex Client midterm (yep, a midterm already) to be o.v.e.r. and some BIG BAD WOLF BBQ NACHOS to kick off football season!
No really. I have a lot to be thankful for today. Let's do a list to recap this week:
- a. Wonderful support from everyone and positive encouragement to get through the week!
b. ONLY five more weeks of school until I can hopefully feel a huge sigh of relief!
c. My parents are coming down tomorrow to give me lots of BIG hugs and have a wonderfully exciting day enjoying some Alabama football!
d. Having such sweet friends --> a ticket for Dave to the football game! (*Thanks Ginger and Megan!)
