****GUESS I BETTER PUT A DISCLAIMER HERE...IF YOU DO NOT LIKE FOOTBALL would be better if you skipped this post...If you do not like BRETT FAVRE, you for sure should skip to the last post or head to another blog...
I had plans to finish blogging about our
Parker Get Away this past week and I will....probably on Sunday. We are home, had a blast, worn out, playing catch up from being gone for 5 days.....unloading all the NEW CHRISTMAS stuff I got at market, and on and on....Tonight we took a night off and had dinner and a card night with Micah and Amanda.
But here is the CRAZY...and if you are not a football lover you will not get it. This has been a stressful week in MY football world...I woke up in the hotel to a ESPN tweet Tuesday morning...saying my favorite player was DONE! Could not decide if I should go to market or stay by the if me staying would make it NOT SO....I will admit it was pretty much all I thought about all day. My kids called to see if MOM was OK. Turns out nothing that was BIG NEWS that day was really any news at all..
So I am still believing that when the Saints and Vikings line up on the first Thursday night in September, #4 will be behind center. Enough BRETT...
This is a weekend I look forward to all year....The induction of great athletes into the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. I may be the only women on earth that watches the shows leading up to all the speeches and then the post shows...I will agree its a little weird. I love it. I love their stories...This year
Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice are both being inducted. I was never a HUGE COWBOY fan, but have always been a big EMMITT fan....I had taped a show today on ESPN that was Emmitt's road to Canton...and just finished watching it...He went back to his old high school in Florida and really relived his life from the projects to Canton, Ohio. Bawled my eyes glad that I am the only one still awake...its 2AM! I love a story of overcoming the odds.
I loved Emmitt scoring touchdowns, I loved Emmitt on Dancing With the Stars, and after watching this show tonight, I love him EVEN MORE. So tomorrow will find me glued to the TV watching some great football players being honored.

This is actually NO SALES TAX, back to school weekend in our town, so I am thinking about buying me a new laptop in the morning..I feel like I am on a SEARCH for the perfect notebook.

I also have a DATE with a little man named JACK, AKA WOODY, tomorrow night, while his Mom and Dad have a date. Parker is out of town and my man is going on a short trip. So it will be me, Jack, Woody and Buzz tomorrow night. I bought him a WOODY outfit while we were in DALLAS...and he loves he has his first real WOODY.

It is the sweetest thing to hear him carrying on a conversation between Woody and Buzz....He has QUITE the IMAGINATION!

If you were a BOOK WINNER,we shipped today. The Post Office LOVES ME....AND JUST BECAUSE I BOUGHT ONE MORE COPY....MONDAY NIGHT PARKER WILL DRAW FOR ONE MORE COPY OF "IN A HEARTBEAT"! And along with that will come a little piece of jewelry that I picked up at market..All you need to do is leave a comment..THAT'S ALL! If you missed the first part of our trip be sure and read this post.

I LOVE FOOTBALL TOO!!!!!! And, I cannot wait for it to start!

Just a little something from Judy said...

You are a fun, creative, interesting lady. You never produce boring blog posts. Me...I share a few fun about Brett, Emmitt, Jerry Rice and the handsome little guys in your life. I smiled as I read this post. Christmas decorations and all makes for a wonderful visit again here. Hope you have a good weekend, and you can relax...I think Brett will be in the lineup this Fall.

Theresa said...

I love football and watch every game... I LOVE BRETT! I don't want him to retire either. Enjoy your time with Jack, I know you will!

Have a blessed day my friend!

Mary said...

I love college football; pro...not so much. But I love a good football story!
How cute is the little man in his Woody outfit? :)
We have tax free weekend, too. I completely steer clear of the stores. It's just not worth it to me!

skoots1mom said...

isn't he the cutest little boy with his new duds...he's quite a handsome cowpoke, he is!
sounds like you had a great time...
and i'm another football fan...more on the NCAA's though...but i understand differences between linebackers and punt kickers.
have a great weekend w/ Woody!

Oh Teresa - I had to for sure ck out your post just to see if you hard the inside "scoop" on that Favre --- I believe he will be back (why not) --- I know we in MN are sure hoping so!

Sure would like to win that giveaway book - I saw the movie "wonderful" -- heard the book is better!

Terra said...

Hey Teresa! I was kind of knocked over by the news of Brett too, but then come to find out, it's not true. I was watching ESPN when they interviewed him while in his big deisel truck...made me laugh because he never turned the truck
I love Emmitt too! We're big time Cowboy fans here. In fact, I just made a post on my blog about what football season means to me
Our season starts TOMORROW on NBC with the Cowboys and the Bengals. I know it's a preseason game, but it still means that football will be on every TV in my house (and my garage) from now until January.
Hope you get some sleep tonight!

That's some serious "fan-dom" you've got there!! :)

Love the pics of the wee one & his 'friends' chatting away. That is adorable.

Have a lovely PINK weekend.

Teresa!!! I am in complete agreement at the heartbeat skip when I heard of "the big news"... Glad it turned out to be nothing but a sneeze!!! Seems to me that if the media would just leave Brett and Lance Armstrong alone I would be a happy girl! Being able to watch these two athletes makes me happy :-)

P.S. I loved your pics of Jack with Woody & Buzz... Reminds me so of my son when he was small :-)

nancarts said... a big football fan! Pro and college! Can't wait for the season to start. I will be in front of the TV all weekend, Monday nights and whenever!
Loved the Woody outfit he is such a cutie!
Your trip sounds great.
Smiles and Blessings,

Well I live in Dallas...need I say more and one of my recent post was "I Hope My Son's Grow UP to be Like Colt McCoy"...with five boys sports is a year around thing.
Love the Woody...Toy Story 3 was our favorite!!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

After Brett had been with the Packers for soooo long and my dad's side of the family from Wisconsin, I can't help but admire Brett Favre! He truly is an amazing football player, with great work ethics...I mean wow! that he had made every game in during those years?

What great photos of your little Jack... He is a cutie!

Blessings & aloha!
I am behind on blog reading and even didnt get my post up this week! (I try to at least post once a week). Anywhooo...thank you for stopping by.

Kat said...

Your Woody is absolutely adorable!!!!!!!!

Not a football fan, but my husband...more like a football NUT.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Grandma Cyndi said...

Debbie Jean said...

"Are you ready for some football?"!!!! Yes, I am!!! I love me some college football!! Go SC Gamecocks!!!

Terra said...

No way am I calling you crazy; you may recall I am a Brett fan and he is my favorite athlete. I grew up near Green Bay and saw many Packers games there, and now I live in California, but the Packers are still my team, and Brett is the best. Sad he left them! I hope he can play another year.

Jen said...

Woohoo for no sales tax weekends!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend!

Leah @ Point Ministries said...

Thanks for stopping by over at The Point and leaving me your thoughts on my heaven post.

I have a friend who is a football person just like you. She can tell you every play and how it is to be executed that the GA bulldogs do or will ever do. Yikes! I can barely follow the football when it is in play. I love her anyway though.


flip flops and pearls said...

YOU have THE MOST precious Woody I have ever seen!!

Discovering the Me in Mommy said...

GrammyMouseTails said...

Oh Teresa, it was so funny to see of our shared "boyfriend" in the news as I had my WW post ready to go. I thought you may of posted on it, but forgot you were out of town w/Parker. Hope your weekend w/Woody is just as fun. I hope you don't mind I will post my link for you to find below, remove it if you want.

I'm not a huge football fan...please don't hate me. I do love the atmosphere and enjoy the stories behind the players and yes, ya gotta love that Emmit.

You and little Woody have a grand time out on the town. He's just precious!

God bless ya and have a glorious day! :o)

Melissa said...

I live in the Twin Cities. And since Brett has come to us I've come to admire and respect the man. Plus I find his longevity amazing...he is the same age as my husband and it really puts things into perspective for me.

I am not a huge football fan in that I am not a fanatic about teams...but I really enjoy watching the game and have tremendous respect for good players with good ethics and sportsmanship.
