I decided I want to give another challenge a try this month.  But I can't decide which one.  Anyone want to join me to do either of these?


Neither will be easy to complete and I think that is what I want this month.

Motivation Monday

I know I am not the only one needing the motivation to keep going when I am not seeing any results.

A Few Ramblings

**  It would be easier to tell if a player is out of bounds in football if they would ban all white shoes.  They blend in with the lines and make it hard to tell at times if someone is out or not.

** I already know one I am making one of my goals for next year is to travel to one Ole Miss game.  

**  A new Ulta opened in the area and I won a free blowout on opening day.  Now to figure out when to use it.  

**  My class this semester is pretty boring.  

**  The Enmy's picked 5 people who really impacted TV to honor separately in the memoroum part and they selected Cory Monteith over Larry Hagman. Really? Larry had a bigger impact. 

** My cousin is going to have a part in this week's Criminal Minds episode.  I am so excited for him.  He is out in LA living and working towards his dreams.

**  I have a new line for Luke Bryan to add to his song Rain is A Goid Thing.  It is rain is a good thing because it washes away the pollen.  My allergies started to acting up yesterday and I am so happy to see the rain today. 

Motivation Monday

This is the last full week of September.  I need the extra motivation to make it through and stick to my goals.

I did it!!! I did it!!!

I DID IT!!! 

I started putting stones in a jar for each workout I did last year (idea for it).  Last year I never finished going through the bag of stones.  I am not proud of not accomplishing that goal last year.  But I can proudly say that tonight I put in the last stone from the bag.  I would jump for joy but my legs are sore this week.  

I counted the stones before I put them back in the bag.  The total is 214 workouts for the year.  I will have to remember to count the stones I put in between tomorrow until the end of the year.  Now to figure out what I should do with the fun money.

Thoughts on Game Day

I admit I didn't watch that many games Saturday as so many of the SEC teams were playing at the same time.  I did some flipping during the afternoon games and would check on the other three teams during our commercial breaks.

**  To the Texas Longhorn Network I surprisingly enjoyed your broadcast.  I figured that you would be bias the whole game but you were pretty fair and very complimentary of our Rebels.  Oh and I love that whole line showing where the teams need to be for a field goal.

**  There are some Refs out there with common sense.  Somehow during the Arkansas and Southern Miss game a Golden Eagle player had his chin strap caught in a Razorback jersey.  Instead of enforcing the rule that you have to sit out a play if your helmet is off on the field you let him continue to play when the helmet was separated.

**  There was no doubt during the Bama game the Refs were for Texas A & M.  There was no way Clinton-Dix was intentionally targeting the Aggie player.  Thanks to the booth guys for not enforcing his ejection from the game.  

**  To the Aggie player who threw the Fins Up sign you obviously don't know anything about your fellow SEC teams or you are regretting not choosing the better school.  

**    The Rebels are now 3-0.  The first time since 1989.

This week out beloved cheer will be heard in Austin, Texas as my Rebels travel to play the Texas Longhorns today. 

I am excited that the local CBS is also televising the game because I don't have the Longhorn Network in my package.  Adding to the excitement of the game is that the Rebels are ranked #25 while the longhorns are not even ranked this year.

Bacon Jalapeno Dip

The Food Network magazine pull out came to the rescue for the second dish R & I took down to the Grove last weekend.  I picked out a dip to take too.

Bacon Jalapeno Dip

8 oz cream cheese
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 c. milk
4 slices chopped cooked bacon
1 tbsp. bacon drippings
1 tsp. white wine vinegar
2 thinly sliced jalapenos
Panko breadcrumbs

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and then spread in a baking dish; top with buttered breadcrumbs (preferably panko).  Bake at 350º until golden and bubbly, 30 minutes

This turned out amazing.  Though it is better while still warm.

Bacon Taco Wings

The second most important thing on game day is a good recipe.  R and I were trying to decide what to make and she suggested some wings.  I went through my cookbooks to find something that would be good.  I found the perfect one in a Food Network Magazine 50 Wings pull out.   

Bacon Taco Wings

3 pounds chicken wings
3 tbsp. taco seasoning

Toss the wings with 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning.  Then wrap each wing in half a piece of bacon.  Bake at 425º until very crisp or about 45 minutes.

These turned out really great.  And were a hit at our table.  

Motivation Monday

I know I need a great deal of motivation this week after the weekend.  I ate way to much and the closest thing to a workout was walking around the Grove and to and from the stadium.

Grove Time

Yesterday I headed down to Oxford with R for a day in The Grove and to watch Rebels play South East Missouri.  The game was declared a red game.  

I am not sure who decided that as SEMO colors involve red too.  

The band during pre game.  

One of our Super Rebels did the Are you Ready?  It was great to see Michel Oher in his Ravens jersey and the Super Bowl trophy.  

The team running onto the field.  

It was great to be back in Vaught-Hemingway on a Saturday evening.

I wasn't thinking and didn't get a single picture while hanging out in The Grove.  I promise to do better next time.
