Sip N' See with Mimi

Sorry it's been a while since my last post but I've been trying to get in as much G Dubb time as possible as my first day back to work is Tuesday, the 17th. I'm not looking forward to leaving my sweet baby boy but i have to tell myself it's what's best right now for me and my child. I know he will be in good hands, I just hate tobe missing out on so much of his infancy. I'll stop my whining now...

We were pretty busy last weekend with parties galore! First, we showered our dear friend Natalia Russo as they prepare to welcome their first baby boy at the end of the month. It was a beautiful shower with lots of good eats to share with good friends. The Lintner family is SO excited to meet baby Russo! The next day we headed off to Mimi's house as she welcomed some of her long time friends to "Sip" on tea and lemonade and "See" baby Graham. The guest of honor did very well, staying awake the whole time. It was so nice to see all of my mom's good friends, most of which were around to see my brother and I grow up. All of these women have remained such good friends over the years, they truly represent the meaning of friendship. I only hope that my friends and I will have that same type of relationship in the future.
Good times had by all...

Bowl time baby!

We kicked off the bowl season with the Dawgs vs. Michigan State. Here's G Dubb hanging out with daddy. Daddy was expecting Graham to be his good luck charm but was sadly mistaken. MSU -33 , UGA - 30.
This game is getting pretty boring...

And so we moved on from the Georgia loss and got ready to cheer on the Clemson Tigers as they took on the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Orange bowl. I was very happy to hear that Clemson was chosen for the Orange bowl this year as this bowl is especially memorable to my family. My grandparents are from Miami which is where my dad and uncles and aunt grew up. My grandparents were very involved in the Miami community and the Orange bowl. If my memory serves me correctly, the two sweethearts were named Mr. and Mrs. Miami because of their work with the Orange bowl and many other events.

Unfortunately, the Clemson Tigers took a HUGE beating from the Mountaineers in a loss of 70 to 33. Only 6 other teams have scored more than 70 points throughout bowl game history. Way to go Clemson defense and Kevin Steele.

As a result, Graham was not a good luck charm during bowl season but he looked pretty darn cute trying!!
