Football season is upon us...

It's almost that time. Saturdays in Oxford! The Grove, tailgating, pretty dresses, cute kiddos in their football jerseys and their smocked dresses. Oh, my heart can't stand it! I'm so excited for it to be Football Season again! :)

Yes, he is!
Stole this from Sarah's Blog. It's too good not to share!

The 10 Commandments of College Football

1. Thou shalt wear team colors. But think twice before adorning yourself with body paint—you don’t want to be the Internet photo that goes viral.
2. Thou shalt know—and sing—your team’s fight song from beginning to end. Sure, you can “watermelon watermelon” your way through the alma mater, but not memorizing the fight song is a fan failure.
3. Thou shalt keep your language clean (unless, of course, the quarterback fumbles on fourth and goal).
4. Thou shalt support the coach. Even when his calls are questionable.
5. Thou shalt be respectful to visiting teams. Remember: Southern ladies and gentlemen never boo.
(not sure I agree with this one. For those of you that know me.....)
6. Thou shalt set up a tailgate no fewer than three hours before kickoff (six if it’s a night game). Table linens and matching huggers encouraged, but not required.
7. Thou shalt theme your tailgate food around the visiting rival. Gator bites, anyone?
8. Thou shalt stay through the fourth quarter—rain or shine. That’s what ponchos are for, y’all.
9. Thou shalt respect the solemnity of Game Day by planning weddings, births, and other life events around the football schedule.
10. Thou shalt not covet other teams’ bowl games, national championships, or Heisman Trophy wins. There’s always next year.

Isn't this awesome! Share with me your favorite game day traditions?

Hotty Toddy y'all!
