Life on the Emerald Coast is returning to normal now that school is back in session. Traffic has died down, the rental units around our home have gone dark and there are parking spots again. I am in my happy place once again!
With school back in session.. the college football season is near! Being that we still live in SEC country, the excitement is building! I am not a huge football fan by any means. I can’t tell you who the players are or what’s going on in the game but I do know how to tailgate. And for those of you familiar with Ole Miss and The Grove you know that we never lose a party. And thank goodness for that because there’s some hearsay that the Rebs may need a little help this year. But here’s to hoping! Anyways, when I was at Ole Miss my Dad would get beyond irritated with me because I would never go to the football stadium to watch the game. Instead, I would camp out in The Grove with my sorority sisters and just enjoy every Saturday down South. With The Grove clearly on my mind, this flower print cold-shoulder dress is ideal for one of the games early in the season. The first games are always still so hot! Even better, this dress is currently 30% off and under $70!
Although my Saturdays in the fall look a lot different now, more like watching College Gameday with coffee in hand, I will always fondly look back at my memories in The Grove as the school year begins. Luckily for me, my co-worker is a fellow Ole Miss Rebel so we reminisce together. And I wouldn’t give up my Saturdays on the couch with my LSU-loving husband and our sweet dogs, Rebel and Tiger, for anything!
Which college football team do you cheer on (either from the stadium stands or simply while drinking champs)? Let me know in the comments! Hotty Toddy!
