Hotty Toddy

I had forgotten how much I love SEC football games.

Saturday, I ventured down to the University of Mississippi, where John goes to school, for the football games versus the University of Memphis. I must say, the Grove did not disappoint.

When I decided to go to Rhodes, which is a very small school, I remember my dad telling me "Victoria, I'm so excited for you because I really believe this school is the best fit for you, but I'm really sad you're going to miss out on college football games that are actually important." 

Well, he's right. I'm going to be honest and say that my high school football experience was more fun than Rhodes football is, but let's remember, even in the South, football isn't everything. Just a lot of it ;)

We had a blast. The entire experience was a little overwhelming, but it was so good to see him and his family, and get to experience a little bit of SEC life, and then come back to Rhodes on Sunday and have an e-mail from a professor saying she'd see me in the morning since I need help on an assignment. 

Plus I snagged this of him when he wasn't paying attention. Isn't he cute?!

Fall Wishlist

Fall Wish List

I'm thinking this season (if it ever gets here...) will consist of a whoooole lot of cognac & accessories (want need that leather tote).

Since we're still in this awkward transitional period, in the South at least, I plan on throwing some bright colors in there to keep things September-y.

What's on your wish list?
