After going to the UT/Alabama game together while dating, I decided it wasn't good for our relationship for us to go to that game together anymore. One of us leaves unhappy (yes, as of late, that would definitely be me), and when anything positive happens during the game...one of us is hooting and hollering while the other wants to butt punch the one who is celebrating. It's a house divided, my friends. What can I say?
But a certain someone had a 30th birthday back in October. And that certain someone was given two tickets for the UT/Bama game by his dad (which he was stoked about). And after thinking it over, I sort of felt like what better gift to give Andy? A date night out to witness a win against a team he can't stand? Priceless. So I did what I said I wouldn't do.
Before the smack down...how happy we look.
View from our seats...
The cattle coming in for the slaughter...Needless to say, Andy loved the game!
After the game, we drove into Pigeon Forge to visit with Andy's family.
Only in the Smokies do you see something this classy...
Not sure why I felt the need to do a muscle pose when I put the coonskin cap on...it just happened. Do you happen to know where the weight room is? (Tommy Boy reference)
This made me laugh. It's like Andy is the adoptive, somewhat awkward member of this little bear family. One of these things is not like the other. One of these things just doesn't belong.
All in all, we had a good, but busy weekend celebrating Andy's day of birth. I also made him a little something special for his big day that I'll try to share soon.
I promised this post would be less dog related, but I just had to show this video. For those that are wondering, Duncan is almost 100%! He smoked me going up and down the stairs to the bathroom just this afternoon and stood at the top like..."C'mon, Mom. You're so slow!" I'll take that over carrying his pain-ridden little body up and down the stairs any day!
This video was taken before his surgery. We had these momma-johamma moths around our apartment that Duncan found fascinating. He was intrigued and terrified all at the same time...
