C-L-E-M-S-O-N T-I-G-E-R...S Fight Tiger, Fight Tigers, Fight, Fight, Fight!

At long last, fall is here and, with it, football season has begun!!! You can see that we are ready for the Clemson V. Alabama game today! This little Tiger won't be able to stay up to see if his team will have enough to hang with the pride of the SEC, but, rest assured, his Daddy and I will certainly be watching. GO TIGERS!!! We are pulling for you and know you will FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT for a win!

Have you seen this?

So I was going around the blog world and came across this blog about the show Jon and Kate plus 8. I have watched the show for the last two seasons and found the children funny and cute. The blog is supposedly written by Aunt Jodie's sister. I wasn't convinced that it was completely true until I saw the most recent post! It's a video of Aunt Jodie addressing all the drama that has gone on about the show. If you are a fan of the show it makes you think differently to say the least!

Totally Feelin' the Love

My friend, Mandy, recently gave me my second award!!!! I can't believe that I have received two awards in one week.

If you receive the “Rock on Sistah Friend” award, you must post the button on your blog (in sidebar or in a post), and link back to Color Me Untypical.
Let Jia know if you receive the award from someone, so she can add you to our Sistah’s Who Rock Blogroll, and give them my personal “Rock On Sistah Friend!”

In the post on your blog, you must give the award away to 3 other Sistah’s who you think rock. Post links to their blogs, why they rock, and post the rules to the award. Also, let them know you’ve given them the award so they too can celebrate themselves and pass on the love.

My Sistahs are...

Margaret at So Happily Us- She just happens to be my Lil Sis from my sorority in college. She has a very cute blog with adorable children!
McMommy at The McMommy Chronicles - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her blog. It is a must read!
Sara at PS Happenings - She is a dear friend and like a sister!!!

And the Award goes to.......

I recently received my first award (yippee!) and need to pass it on. Here are the deserving seven.

Jessica at Farm Fresh Iowa - She is an amazing woman and adorable kids! You need to read about the recent birth of her son. AMAZING!!!!!
Elizabeth at Tigers in Beaufort - She is a fellow Clemson graduate and a newlywed!!!
Tanya at The Random Happenings of Us - She is an old high school friend I recently found!
Bree at The Story of a Little Man Lincoln - I love reading about how Lincoln is doing and can relate to somethings because I'm a preemie mom too.
Nate at Confessions of A CF Husband - This is a very inspiring blog that everyone should check out.

If you're looking my for my POW click here! Sorry this is last week's!

Behold, my new favorite snack! I discovered them at Costco, while they were giving away free samples. By the way, gotta love the Costco -
with all the free samples, you can have a whole meal when you visit! So the snack is freeze dried apples. They are crunchy and then they kind of melt in your mouth. The apples are very sweet.

Another plus is that Ben really likes them too! I went the to the website for the apples and saw that they made other kinds of fruits, too. I'll be on the look out to try the other kinds for sure, but has anyone else scouted them out already?

Playtime with cousin Madeline

This past weekend Ben spent sometime with his cousin before she moves to California this month. :( It was really interesting seeing them together. Ben was not quite sure what to think of while Madeline was in awe of Ben. She would smile at him and he would make a weird face at her. He did like to show her how the toys worked, which was very cute. I hope that they will get to see each other again soon!

Shoo Fly, Shoo

The other day my husband was trying to kill a fly and this is how Benjamin reacted. Now anytime he hears a slapping sounds he does this. Too cute!!! He makes me smile so much it hurts!
