Bad day for the Falcons, but a good day for me...

I should have known that this would happen to the Falcons. I was never a pro football fan until fantasy football and it is a good thing. The Falcons stink. They always have, and whether or not they always will, remains to be seen. I can't say that I care all that much. I think that it says something about a team when a person has lived in one city all their lives and has never once attended one of the team's games. That's right, in 28 years I have never attended one Falcon game. I would however not be opposed to seeing Matt Ryan play if someone offered me FREE tickets (hint hint). Anyways, when I woke up this morning the first thing I thought was "oh my gosh, am I late for something"? I lay in the bed frozen for a minute thinking that there was no way in hell that I had nothing scheduled and no event to attend. What a great feeling! Since it was pretty early I was able to pick up the third book in the Twilight series and read for the next hour. Definitely not my normal style of reading but that is a topic for another post. I will point out for those reading that this book has a BLACK cover and not a PASTEL cover. After some leisure reading I took a shower and met Deaner at my parents house to stuff the invitations for our wedding! How exciting is that! I happened to look at weddingchannel.com a couple days ago and it informed me that our wedding was only 66 days away! I can't believe it. It has come so quickly! And I am really really looking forward to it. I am very excited to see who will be able to come and who won't. Since there are 358 people on our guest list my mother refused to let me send out "save the date" cards. I could hardly blame her as she pointed out that we don't necessarily want people to save the date! :) It might come as a shock to some people that I am even getting married!

My sister and my mother went shopping this morning at a bridal boutique that was going out of business. To my great luck, they found the bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding at 75% off for the sample! Since it fit my sister perfectly they knew it would fit me well enough to buy it. I tried it on as soon as they got home and came out of the back bedroom to model it for everyone. My father agreed that it was a great dress, and would be even better "as soon as I got it in my real size"......Thanks so much Dad!! Too bad that is the exact dress I am going to wear in my sister's wedding! For that price, I won't eat for a week. Fine by me. My dad was really really good at putting stamps on the wedding invitations and the response cards. No opinions were requested there! :) Just teasing dad, if you read this, even Amelia and I laughed about the comment later!

After leaving my parents house it became obvious to me that it was Deaner's intention to go and watch the Falcon's game at Taco Mac. Too bad we got there 20 minutes before kickoff and the place was packed! I didn't even see that many people there for Georgia games this fall! You can always count on Atlanta to jump on the band wagon when the striking is hot. I guess I had just forgotten what it was like since it has been so long for the Falcons! Finally after waiting for an hour and a half I went up to the hostess stand to ask if we were getting closer. She told me that there was basically no shot at us getting a table until the game was over and as I was heading back to tell Deaner the bad news (I was not staying there any longer) my red blinky thing started going off! Right after being seated my sister and future brother-in-law called to see if we wanted to grab a bite to eat with them. Perfect timing! They came and joined us and the company was great. I got to assure my sister that mother had no intention of inviting 125 people to her rehearsal dinner and tell her how beautiful her wedding dress was that I had seen that afternoon. Now we are home on the couch watching Indy and San Diego battle it out. I really don't care who wins this game but I have to pull for Peyton Manning just because he is Eli's brother. I bet that most people never would have put loyalty in that order! :)

The best part of the day is that tomorrow will start off just the same! For the life of me, I don't think we have any obligations tomorrow either! I will be free to read my vampire book all day long. I am sure I will feel a small pain in my heart when I realize that there is no fantasy game, but I am also sure I will get over it. My nerves need a rest. Since next weekend is Deaner's birthday, I suppose I need to rest up!

I'm personally offended by your Falcons comments. The Falcons will NOT always stink, they DO NOT stink now, and Matt Ryan is the bomb.
