We are less than a week away from the official kickoff to the college football season and I couldn't be more excited!
As most of you know, I went to Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and as with most SEC schools, it's all about the Fall and football!
It's a BIG deal even when you're not in the town where your alma mater is.
Every year the Charlotte area SEC school alumni associations come together as one for a 'Kickoff Party'.
This started many years ago and I have only missed a few over the years.
This year was extra special because it was Shelby's first time!
Our alumni group went all out to make us standout in the crowd by hand painting this Tiger eye for our tent.
Great for photo ops, even for my Virginia Tech Hokie hubby.
One of our alumni members owns Painting with a Twist here in Charlotte and was nice enough to be on site giving everyone a chance to do a little painting.
Just like last year our Arkansas fan friends met up there with us.
Shelby got snuggles from Miss Katie.
New to the group this year was Missouri and Texas A&M.
Little weird but welcome to them!
My little Tiger.
Shelby was one of MANY babies there this year.
A fun family event.
Now bring on the games!!!!!
The COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF IS ON!!!
Does your town do something like this either for SEC, ACC, Big 10, etc??
