Football 101

My daughter’s interpretation of football:

Emma: Why won’t they (Denver Broncos) let the Bears win?
Me: Because they want to win, too.
Emma: Well, that’s just rude.


I adore this kid.

When in Rome…

When in Rome (or at your sister’s house in Charlotte), you tend to do things the way they do them. I did a few things I wouldn’t normally do and it was kind of fun. Here’s what I did:

  • Watched college football.
  • Watched the Country Music Awards. I loved Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton!
  • Hung out with a dog named Barkley.
  • Did absolutely nothing for about 6 hours straight.
  • Didn’t have to be anywhere at any time for 3 days.
  • Ate a beignet.
