If you know anything at all about me, you probably know of my love for football. Growing up in Tennessee, I can't remember a time where I didn't watch the sport. I became a Tennessee Titans fan when I was attending WKU in Bowling Green and have been one ever since. Sharing my love for football, especially my love for the Titans with Carsyn has been awesome! Today, we got to attend our first training camp practice together and it was perfect.
Not that I ever need an excuse to eat a delicious Dairy Queen blizzard, but if I did, I would be covered tomorrow! Thursday, July 30th is Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen and you can snack on a delicious treat and make a difference in the lives of children.
Everybody needs a good road trip every now and then, right? Throw in some delicious food and awesome company and that sounds perfect! Well, that's exactly what Chad and I are doing Wednesday night! Madisonville... we're headed your way!
While on vacation last week, my Mom, sister and I took five kiddos to Venture River Water Park in Eddyville. It was the perfect day... Party-cloudy, mid 80's and just the right amount of people. After the first round of water slides, we took in the lazy river for some much needed down time. It was there in that inner-tube that I saw something puzzling to me... A woman who looked flawless. She looked like she was straight out of a JC Penny's swim catalog. Wait. Why didn't she look like a drowned rat like we all did? Then it hit me... She so fancy. So, to that Mom, here's a letter.
Sure it's only July, but with this crazy heat, I know I'm not the only one who doesn't mind thinking of cooler weather. Plus, it's never too early to start talking about Gaylord Opryland's "A Country Christmas"! There are several changes taking place in Nashville this year, including the addition of Dr. Seuss' "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" musical coming to the Grand Ole Opry stage! And, they just announced this years ICE! theme. It's going to be awesome!
Like millions of others around the country, I just finished watching the ESPY's. Contrary to popular belief, I actually watch for the awards, not just to see if Kevin Love took a date. And, to be honest, like many others, I wasn't exactly thrilled with the choice of Caitlyn Jenner winning the Arthur Ashe Award For Courage. I just felt that there were other people who had been thru so much more than her and it really bothered me. I was wrong for thinking that. And, after watching her speech, I realize that I may never know the amount of courage it took for her to finally live her life freely.
But, I will have to say, what I've seen regarding the show and her winning is disturbing. There's nothing like a good Facebook feed scroll to really make you question humanity. I wonder... Do you really feel all of that hatred that you're saying? Do you have any idea what damage your words could really be doing? Do you care?
If you're like me, you're counting down the days until football is back! If you're also a Titans fan like me, you can get in on the action a little earlier than the start of the season. The Tennessee Titans are hosting nine practices that will be open to their fans this summer! The Titans are scheduled to begin training camp on Friday, July 31st at Saint Thomas Sports Park in Nashville and YOU are invited!
