I love weekends in Auburn! *Picture Post*

I am home from my fabulous weekend in Auburn! I just can't say enough about how much I love that place :) For me, it is one of the best places there is. Let me tell you a little something about Auburn, Alabama...

It is a charming and quaint little college town that was voted one of the top 10 best cities to live in the United States. I say it is little but it is also the fastest growing metro area in the state of Alabama. Since I was born pretty much, I have spent every football season in Auburn. My parents have had football season tickets since 1984 and I am fortunate enough to have shared so many wonderful experiences there. I also spent my college days in Auburn for four and a half years and those were some of the best times of my life. When I think of Auburn I think of family, pride, spirit, sophistication, dignity and a whole lot of love! And game days at Auburn are unlike any other. Coming from fans of South Carolina, LSU and Clemson, Auburn fans were the nicest and most welcoming people of any college town they had been to. We love our town and the people in it. During football season, the aroma of tailgating and cookouts fill the air and the town is crawling with people dressed in their orange and blue. I wouldn't trade it for the world!

This past weekend we beat Georgia making our team 11-0! It was a rocky start but we got it together in the second half. We secured the spot for the SEC West and we are playing in the SEC Championship game in Atlanta against South Carolina!! I am so proud of our boys! They have a week off and then we go to Tuscaloosa to play Alabama!! The Iron bowl...our biggest rival....our biggest game of the season!!

So Friday night was Kyndal's bachelorette party! We had a delicious dinner and then headed to the lake house! Kelsey, Kyndal's sister, and I had gone earlier in the day to decorate. We spent the night playing crazy games, opening lingerie gifts, dancing to blaring music and taking tons of pictures!

Saturday we got up bright and early for breakfast. Then I had to get ready and head to our tailgate on campus. The game was a little stressful towards the beginning but it got better. We beat the dawgs and sent them on a long bus ride home! After the game, everyone stayed in the stadium and celebrated for about 45 minutes! All the coaches and players were running all over the field celebrating, the student section was going crazy and music filled the air...it was our last home game of the season. But what a fantastic way to end the night!

Enjoy my pictures from the weekend! Love you all!
