2- Number of people that attended the Lacey family Thanksgiving. Kenny and me. It was heavenly.

4- The amount of times I cried during the first half of the movie The Blind Side. Looooved that movie and want to see it again. It was so good.

2- How many times we have watched Christmas Vacation already. Not to mention I have already watched The Family Stone once, every silly Christmas movie on the Family Channel and Lifetime. We have also watched Elf, and Santa Clause 2 and a few others. We like Christmas movies.

1- the amount of Egg Bowls I have ever been too. This past weekend was my first Egg Bowl. Can you believe it!!!! And what a fun one to go to!!

41-27 The score for MSU vs. Ole Miss. We beat their tails. It was soooo much fun! I think after this weekend I might be a tad obsessed with Dan Mullen. And I decided that he is reeeeaallly cute when he smiles.

3- times that we have eaten Thanksgiving dinner. Once on Thursday and a few more times for leftovers. We still have food left. Not complaining at all. It is all so delicious!

9- as in 9:00 pm. The time that Kenny and I fell asleep both Friday and Saturday night. To our credit we both worked on Friday and then Saturday we woke up at 5:00 am to make it to Starkville.

1- Present that I have left to buy on my Christmas list and I am officially DONE Christmas shopping! Hooray!!

This past weekend Kenny and I FINALLY made it down to Starkville to see the Bulldogs face off against Alabama. And while it wasn't the outcome we had hoped we still had a fantastic time.

We woke up EARLY Saturday morning and got on the road. We had big plans of hitting up The Grill before making our way over to the tailgate. We were definitely the first people in the door when they opened. Ha! We enjoyed our cheese sticks, and other appetizers and maybe a couple of mimosas (Ha!) while we watched the Ole Miss game. I love the Grill so much. After hanging out there for a while we headed on campus to meet up with friends at the tailgate. We had so much fun and it was such a beautiful day. Kenny and I still can't get over how much Game days have changed. The tailgating is craaazy and there is just so much energy. And the game was packed and that jumbo tron is ridiculous. We think we want to buy season tickets for next year so we will see.

Ummm so I had never heard about this lady but some of the guys were super excited about spotting her. I gather she is a University of Alabama YouTube phenomena. Google her. Her name is Ramp Lady and she screams really really loud. Which I would of rather not heard her demonstrate.

• Definitely kicked off my Christmas Music listening yesterday and I am thrilled. I jut could not hold out any longer. I am soooo excited about the holidays. Yesterday I completed probably 80% of my Christmas shopping. My goal is to be done the first week of Christmas so that I can really enjoy the holidays and not be going crazy in the stores. I am also waiting for my extremely cute Christmas cards to come so that I can start addressing those and I am about to send out my invites for my Christmas party this week. I am on the ball! Now I just need to start wrapping!

• NEW MOON IS THIS WEEK!!!!! I already have my ticket bought and a girls night planned that includes sushi, movie and then maybe an ice cream so we can discuss afterwards. Am I a 13 year old. No. Am I on Team Jacob???? YES!

• I made Lifetimer in Weight Watchers last week! I am so excited and to date have lost 16lbs!

• Last night I watched Nights in Rodanthe. It was kind of weird. Richard Gere is HOT.(still)

I know everyone always says to make sure you tell the people that you love that you love them because you never know if it could be the last time. I just found out that a professor I was close to in college as were many many many other students were, passed away yesterday and I am heartbroken.

I am heartbroken at the loss of life and I am heartbroken that we had lost touch in the last couple of years. She had been battling cancer when I graduated and last I had heard was doing better. I had emailed and spoken to her briefly after moving to Memphis to let her know that I had landed the job that I wanted and I owed so much of it to her. She had been my advisor when I had strayed off my educational path and I had taken every class that she taught in my four years of being there. Totaling seven classes with her as my teacher all of them having to do with my major(which I loved). I loved her for shooting it to me straight and pulling out my talents as she did for so many other students. She was an amaaazing teacher and I am filled with regret at not having told her what she meant to me.

Tell your loved ones that they impact your life......but tell your teachers, role models, mentors and even your college advisors that they meant something to you too.

We will miss you Lora.
