OU #1

Thank you Alabama (sorry Georgia fans)!!!! What a great Saturday!! If you do not know yet, you should....Oklahoma is No 1 in the AP Poll for the first time since 2003 and broke the record for most appearances atop the AP Poll.


We made a flying trip to Ada on Saturday to visit Granny and Bryan had to set up his deer camera and then we high-tailed it back to Norman for some glorious football!!! It was a gorgeous day! The weather was just perfect and the company was too!! We sat behind Brooklyn and Jorge.




Brooklyn is such a sweet, patient friend to me!! I love to laugh with her!!

And yes, I did get my football nachos. They taste so much better at a live football game!! I thought I would just starve myself until the game (I certainly do not need the nachos; they are not the healthiest food :>) ) but Granny had chili cheese dogs when we got to her house!! I am in so much trouble this week. I will have to work out double time!!

Throughout the game we kept watching the Alabama/Georgia score. I just knew we would go to #1 if Alabama beat Georgia. I kept thinking of Laura who is a small Bama fan!!! I was excited for her and wondered how they were reacting!! I'm holding my breath for my Sooners though because we do have some pretty intense games coming up.

I am really trying to weed down our closets and odds and ends we just do not use. I'm either donating them or trying a resale shop or storing the undecided in the attic. As I was going thru my clothes I wondered just how many OU shirts I had. I thought it would be fun to take an inventory!

What an eye opener!!! I had no idea I had this much and I had even forgot about 2 of the t-shirts I had!! Thank goodness they are all different. It is kind of funny and kind of not. It made me realize how much excess I had. I was convicted of the extra money I spent on wardrobe items that were not really needed; just wanted. I told Bryan at the time of purchase I'm sure I felt I just had to have it but in reality there is no way I need another new shirt! I am glad I did this and hope I apply the lesson I learned. I can live without a lot of the material things so many of us have.

Tonight we have Monday Night Football, Tuesday -- Biggest Loser, Thursday -- The Office!!!

Have a great week!!!

YAY! for OU, going to the game, sitting by sweet Brooklyn, and eating nachos!!! What a great time!
I bet my dad could give you a serious run for your money with the OU attire! So funny!

Looks like you had a great time and congratulations to you Oklahoma fans! (Needless to say, not a great day for us Bulldog fans.) (-:

Laura said...

Julie - congrats on being #1 and I really do mean that. Although I love my Crimson Tide, I don't expect us to stay at #2 for very long! We have a rather tough schedule ahead of us, also! We still have LSU and Auburn left. I'll be sitting on pins and needles for those games!

I'm watching you Sooners, too!

Yay for our OU Sooners! #1!!!

I watched the game by myself on my comfy couch.

I'm glad you got to go with Brooklyn & Jorge. How fun!

It's gonna be a fun season. I hope we can keep up the good work.

I am so glad that you had fun at the game and got to experience your nachos ;)!

I am so with you on the excess! I would love to wear the same thing everyday just to save $!

Heather said...

I have to say I threw up a little bit in my mouth when I saw all those OU shirts!!! :) J/K Julie!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a closet clean-out! One of my favorite things EVER!

Looks like you all had a blast at the game! I wish I had that many Hogs shirts! =)

The Allens said...

Fun weekend! We are Aggies, so winning football games is a little foreign to us, but we love to go!

Alana said...

Wow!! That is quite a collection.

Guyla said...

I'm glad you got to go to the game. Looks like fun. I've never been to an OU football game, only basketball. We need to go sometime but I probably couldn't get my husband (the OSU man) to wear an OU shirt. Ha!

I love this!! Now I don't feel like such a hoarder! You are too funny! A great fan though. Love, MG

Leigh Ann said...

I'm so glad you got to go to the game. I know you love it. I'm also glad you have a great team to watch, us in AR not so much. Wow! You should be ready for many games to come with all of those shirts. Just look at it as an investment and you won't have to buy any for a long time.

Brandon & April said...

WOW! That's a true fan girlfriend! That's lots and lots of shirts!
