Show Us Your Life-Tailgates and Favorite Teams

Every week Kelly hosts Show Us Your Life and this week it's favorite teams. That's a no-brainer for me. Our entire family graduated from Auburn-my daddy, my husband, my brother and sister-in-law, both of our sons and daughters-in-law, and me) so we have strong ties to Auburn University and not just the football team. We have season tickets to football games and also try to go back for a basketball game and a baseball game every year. If a swim meet is in town or a gymnastics meet when we're in Auburn, we go to those, too. In other words, we bleed orange and blue. Here are a few pictures of some of our trips to Auburn this fall.

Our nephew is a sophomore at Auburn and is a trainer for the football team. Here he is on the sideline just behind the yard marker (looking over his left shoulder).

The Auburn University Marching Band in the pre-game show

One of the best pre-game activities in college football---our eagle circling the stadium before landing at mid-field while the crowd yells "War-r-r-r-r-r Eagle!"

It's GREAT to be an AUBURN TIGER!! War Eagle!


  1. Thank you for the comment! =) And your family is beautiful as well! I decided on Ashlyn because I never heard that name. Now it seems there's Ashlyns everywhere!

    I love the pictures you have posted on your blog. The rainbow, the beach ah I love the crab and the sunset was awesome! And your time in Colorado! I used to live there and never heard of the places you've been! I'll make sure the next time we take a vacation CO will be it!

    Thanks again =)

  2. Fellow Auburn alum...met my husband in section 19 a long time ago! Now we share the Auburn experience with our kids on game days on the plains. The eagle flying is one of our family's favorites! I posted a pic on our blog from the Sept. 12 game, where Spirit has patriotic streamers flowing as he flies. Gave me beautiful!!

    Just wanted to stop by and say WAR EAGLE!
