The Fab Believes In Auburn And Loves it

Well, most of the Fab loves Auburn.  Some of the fab fourteen went to that other school in a city that starts with a “T” and a few others went elsewhere. 

All but two Auburn Fab alum came to join us last weekend as we tailgated before and after the Georgia vs. Auburn game. We missed you Allison M. and Amy.  (If you don’t know about the Fab, you can read about our special friendship here).

We started our morning with a yummy round of mimosa’s.  Then we played games, ate great food, visited, laughed, and just had an overall great weekend.

Oh, did I mention our husbands were also there with us?  We had a giant co-ed sleepover.  Everybody piled into Judd’s parent’s tailgate house.  It was just like our slumber parties in high school except this time we let the boys stay too.  :)

tailgate

Everybody got a big laugh out of our neighbors game day bus.  They use it to transport people to and from their house and the stadium.

The girls and I split ways just before the game because some of us had tickets and others did not.  Judd and I went to the game.  It was so much fun!  Our tigers won. In fact, our tigers have won all of their games this season!!! 

After the game, Auburn’s quarterback , Cam Newton, came running all the way across the stadium to thank the fans (his Auburn family) who have supported him over these past few weeks.  A compilation of season highlights was played on the jumbotron (aka: AUHD).  Click the video below to watch the highlights.  While the video played, the seniors (who had just won their last victory ever at home) also ran around thanking the fans.  If you know me well, it is no surprise that I had full crocodile tears running down my face as the seniors and Cam celebrated and thanked their AU family.  They have given us such a great season.  We are so proud of them.  It’s great to be an Auburn tiger.  I truly believe in Auburn and LOVE it!!!

  3. I think it's so wonderful that you girls have maintained such a strong friendship over the years. Have you heard of a book by Wall Street Journal writer Jeffrey Zaslow called The Girls From Ames? It chronicles a group of 11 girls whose friendship has spanned over thirty years. I love, love, love it, and I think it should be required reading for "The Fab" Check it out!

  4. @ Samantha- I have heard about that book. Someone from the fab read it and found their website. We all enjoyed looking at it. We had fun kidding about how we were like them. I have that book on my "to read" list. If I could ever get finished with school maybe I could actually read something for pleasure. It's been a long while.
