Hooray and a Yee-HAW!

Happy Friday!!! Fo' Sho'....it's been a long and crazy week for me. But, I'm happy to report that my trial calendar was very successful yesterday and now I have the lucky pleasure of trying - not some big felony meth lab case (which was continued) or an exciting aggravated assault...but... (wait for it...)

Pedestrian Under the Influence
Disorderly Conduct
and a few other minor misdemeanors...

Madness! So, I have NO plans for the weekend. However, I did want to mention that the Annual CRBI (Coosa River Basin Initiative) Fish Fry is this Saturday from 11 - 3 at the First United Methodist Church downtown. It's $8 for a good plate of fried catfish (with all the trimmings, including hush puppies!) or $4 for a small fry plate (half serving)...they will also have a Green Expo with interesting Earth-Friendly displays. The best part (other than the yummo fish and donating to a good cause) is that all the oil used to fry the fish will be recycled and used in vehicles that are designed to run on vegetable oil! How great is that?!?!? GO GREEN!

Also, there is a Downtown Sidewalk Sale this weekend on Broad Street - so come stroll for some good deals - oh, and the Downtown Business Expo is also this weekend at the Forum with lots of good holiday gift-giving ideas. Fun times! (And free food samples ;) )

Right. So, football... here are my predictions. Alabama will win, Georgia will win. I'm planning to catch as many games as I can on Saturday. My kids are going to the Auburn game with their daddy (though they're playing someone unmemorable...) but they're sitting in the 2nd row, so I'm awaiting pictures with Aubie and the Auburn Cheerleaders!

I am unbelievably in love with my children, by the way. They come up with the most interesting things to tell me all the time! Carson said - "Do you know that snails sometimes like to eat spaghetti? I love spaghetti. Maybe I could have spaghetti with some snails..." Um, ok. If she wasn't three, I'd wonder how long she'd been hitting the crack pipe. Cole is very into nature and science stuff. We had a LONG discussion about evergreens. Like pine trees, firs, etc. (He calls them "forever-greens" though, which makes sense, really. They're just perfect really. I know I complain sometimes about how exhausting they are - but I really don't know where I'd be without them. They teach me not only patience, but unconditional love, free-spiritedness, gratitude for the smallest things in life (you know, like snails...), and their love of learning just makes me so very proud. OK - Mommy gushing is over, thanks for staying with me on that one.

    You should send your kids to the cheerleading tailgate event tomorrow at Auburn. It's on the corner right where Tiger Walk ends at the stadium. They could get their picture made with the cheerleaders and also get their faces painted. Happy Saturday!
