I love red velvet cake, glitter, music, car washes, and nail polish. I am a southern belle with a hint of cajun class. Starting this blog was a challenge to do something I WANTED to do not because I HAD to.

Rocky Top

I know it has been a while since I actually was in Tennessee, but I never blogged about it.  My visit to Knoxville was jam packed busy! Date Party, Meetings all day (I mean literally ALL day), family tailgate, football game, and elections!  I also was blessed to catch up with some oldie but goodie Beta friends.  I just love how the Beta Club from High School can connect you to people all over the country.  It was great to catch up with Ali, Lindsey, and Carlos.  Miss those peeps:)

I enjoyed going to the game...this stadium was massive. It holds over 100,000 people. I mean seriously I felt like a bug in this place.  I was a true Tennessee girl that night.  I sang every word to Rocky Top every single time it played.  You should have seen me shaking my pom pom to all the cheers! Gosh I loved it.  I even became bff with the guy next to me...football just brings people together.  

It is funny that I am writing this today when LSU is playing in the SEC Championship.  

I was told by Mille the chapter President that back in the 80s when everyone would sing Rocky Top there was never the "whoo" in the song until some Phi Mus started it.  Now I really don't know if this is exactly true, but the Kappa Sigma President who sat with us agreed and said that it was true!  After hearing the story every time when it came to shout the "whoo" and fist pump at the same time I always smiled because I knew the true story behind that!  I just love the story whether it is really true or not.  :)

I just had to take a picture of these crazy pants!

Sweet Chapter President Mille and myself
We also had really great seats...16th row.  Oh and I also sported my bright orange coat.  
Happy Game day to all.
