As I mentioned, I was in Birmingham and Auburn over the weekend. It was a whirlwind trip from start to finish: exactly thirty minutes before I was planning to leave town, a little bird decided he wanted to hop in and fly south with me. No problemo.

My mom's two favorite things in the world are Evan and dressing just like me. So imagine her surprise when we walk in Taziki’s: not only are she and I accidentally wearing the very same top (BECAUSE I BOUGHT IT AND WORE IT HOME IN AUGUST WHICH PROMPTED HER TO RUN OUT AND BUY IT TOO) but right behind me was Evan. I thought she was going to wet her pants. The three of us had dinner with my brother-in-law’s mom, who had driven in to see her baby boy since Jennie and Jamie are so rarely in Alabama. Evan’s uncle came to pick him up while Mom, Jamie's mom and I made our airport run to collect my sister and brother-in-law. Jamie opened his birthday presents and we enjoyed birthday cake!

Friday, I had a lunch date with another Jamie, the original Jamie in my life. She is due with a little bundle of joy in October and I am so excited for her. I could hardly wait to give her this little guy – the only thing resembling Big Al I’ve EVER bought (or intend to buy) in my entire life. But for this little Bama baby, I made an exception. My talented friend Julia made this especially for Gage; isn’t it adorable?
Pretty sure Jamie’s husband Les, who is an Auburn fan like me, isn’t too happy but whatever. This little guy is worth it! I don’t know why this is the only picture I got that day, especially since her little baby bump is so adorable!

So after an amazing visit over an amazing lunch, I carted my sister and mother around all afternoon. They were eager to shop and because my brother in law had my mom’s car for the day, I was their chauffeur. Nothing says Quality Bonding Time like 280 traffic! Jennie and Jamie had plans that night, so Mom and I ventured off to Pablo’s for some girl talk and margaritas at Pablo’s. Since we were all planning to get up bright and early to head to the Plains, we hit the hay with visions of Aubie dancing in our head.

Auburn deserves a post of its own, don’t you think? Even more so when you only make one trip a year. How said is that! WHAT HAS MY LIFE COME TO?
