Football Frenzy

Scarlett has definitely become Brody's football buddy. Just the other day when the Cowboys had their bye week she mentioned that she was sad that they weren't playing because they're her favorite team. Last Friday night, Brody took her on a date night to watch some high school football in the new Heroes Stadium. Scarlett was thrilled to get some time with her "best friend, Daddy". Brody sent me a text that read:

"she kept saying 'I love being here with you daddy'...brody wept."

That girl has him wrapped right around her finger-ha!

I got in on the action Saturday morning. Let me start by saying we are planners by nature. We just don't do much spur of the moment-probably because that's tough with kids. However, when we got a call Saturday from someone with three tickets to the Longhorns game we HAD to go! My mom and dad had their own plans that day, but graciously offered to take the kids along with them on their errands so off we went. My brother got to come with us and I joked that it was a date for Brody and me but reminded me of high school when Mom would send Jordan up to spy and make sure nothing "inappropriate" was going on. :) The only thing inappropriate this time would be the amount of stadium food I would consume.

Let me say that I made fun of Brody for wearing tennis shoes. I told him three times he should wear his boots. After about the 2nd mile of walking uphill to the stadium in my three inch heels, I was regretting my mockery.
This certainly is NOT the stadium I remember from my days of going to games with my dad. This place was MASSIVE!
Whether you love this team or not, you have to admit how impressive it is to see 100,000+ all wearing burnt orange. It was awesome!
I know my hair looks pitiful here, but I was so happy to be at this game I didn't even care...and that's saying a lot. It was a great day, and a fun football weekend! (even the Cowboys won!!)

It is a good thing to be spontaneous. Having built-in babysitters helps.

I'm with Brody on the tennis shoes over the boots (no cowboy boots for me). While I try not to make fun of people, I will admit I ROAST girls who wear heels to almost anything that isn't a wedding--especially sporting events and amusement parks. Of course you looked a lot better than I ever have at a game, though, too.

Glad it was a fun day!

You already read my comment and commented back. I was SO going to delete it because I'm extremely embarrassed and ashamed of how it all came out! I was busy all day with Roberta and was just now washing the dishes and thinking about my day and words and thoughts and I got to thinking about what I wrote and that it sounded mean and rude all the way around. I'm so sorry...I didn't mean for it to sound that way. I wasn't dogging you or laughing at your pain. I have often said I'd do anything to be able to comfortably wear a great pair of heels again without pain or embarrassment.

Also, I didn't mean to imply your family always babysits. You are beyond blessed to have them here but I know you don't expect it and demand their help.

I wish I had 1000 acceptable reasons for why my words came out the way they did but unfortunately lack of caffeine, hurrying through my comments, and having other things on my mind aren't good enough.

I am truly sorry and hope you'll forgive me.
