It is here.......

We are full force into football season and it is fabulous. Our team at the school is doing well and of course our Auburn Tigers are doing well this year too! YAY! We have enjoyed some great times already with family and friends during this football season and it has only just begun!!
On that note, we had a bit of a scary weekend a few weeks ago. On September 12th my parents were in Auburn at the game tailgating with some friends and having a great time. Apparently my dad got bit or stung by something on his leg and he started itching really bad all over. He told my mom he felt like his ears were swelling so a lady at their tailgate site gave him some benedryl to help. He stood up and walked to the truck where he collapsed to the ground. They helped him up and went to get him a chair and when they got him a chair he collapsed AGAIN into the chair. Of course my mom and everyone else were terrified so they called 911. They took him by ambulance to the hospital where he was treated with an epinephrine shot for an allergic reaction. He was feeling alright on the way to the hospital but his blood pressure was 60/20 which is dangerously low and they kept him there until about 6:40. He left there with a prescription for an epi pen to carry with him at all times and even though my parents missed the game, they were so thankful he was alright as were my sister and I!! If nobody had been with him to give him that benedryl, it could have been fatal!! To top this off, it was his BIRTHDAY!!! Yep, it was and it was one he will never forget!! I am so glad he is okay!

On another note, we have been waiting for months now on Elizabeth and Robby's wedding and it's finally arrived!! We leave this thursday to head to North Carolina for this wonderful time with family and friends!! I absolutely can not wait for this mini vacation! =) It is going to be so exciting as weddings always are and I am glad we get to be apart of it with everyone up there! I'll post pictures when we return!

Today is your lucky day.........

As many of you know today's date is September 9, 2009, or better known as 09/09/09. Supposedly today's date makes this one of the luckiest days of the year. I was reading an article on the yahoo website that just talked about all the reasons the number 9 was special and I thought I would share a couple of them.

1. This is the last set of repeating single digit dates for almost a century (until January 1, 2101).
2. If you remember from school, the sum of the 2 digits resulting from nine multiplied by any other single digit number will equal nine (ex. 9x3=27; 2+7=9).
3. Also, spetember 9, 2009 happens to be the 252nd day of the year........2+5+2=9.

I know this may all sound stupid but at the same time it's interesting if you really thiunk about it!!! Somewhere today there are brides and grooms getting married because of the significance of todays date. So, with all that said, enjoy the last single digit repeating day you may ever see!! I hope today is everyone's lucky day!!! =)
