TEXAS FIGHT, TEXAS FIGHT

The eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the live long day.
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
You cannot get away.
Do not think you can escape them,
At night, or early in the morn'.
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
Till Gabriel blows his horn!

This weekend P and I went up to Austin to visit a friend and go to the UT football game. As you know, I am very passionate about my football, and the game, as well as the time with friends was awesome! I was wearing orange, and sitting with the UT fans,even though I am not a huge fan of UT. Secretly, I was going for Colorado. In my perfect world, Colorado would have won, and LSU would have beaten Florida, thus, moving Alabama to number 1 and putting LSU at number 2 in the BCS poll, but that did not happen. Its alright, my Tigers will bounce back!! GEAUX Tigers. (I am a Louisiana girl at heart!!!).
I think the biggest factor that made the weekend so great was the fact that we were in Austin. P and I really enjoy Austin, and I can see us living there. For those of you who have never been to Austin, TX, it is really a great city. Unlike Dallas or Houston, or many other big cities for that matter, Austin in not a chain, big box store kind of town. Austin is all about local. They like local artists, locally grown food, and locally owned stores. It is such a big city, with the feel of a small town. There are hundreds of hole in the wall places to eat and roof top patios where you can sit, relax, hang out with friends, and look out at the beautiful skyline. It is a really unique city, that is unlike any other.
Here are some pictures of the game.
Hope yall had a fun weekend. P got this picture of me at the end of the game.
The HUGE HUGE HUGE screen.


A picture of an older lady sitting in front of us. She was a major fan, and she was yelling and dancing the whole time!! Got a pic of her showing some longhorn love.
