FFF is Back!

I haven't participated in FFF lately, so I thought I'd get with it this week!  Here are this week's FFF:

1.  High school football games.  It's like a school reunion on Friday nights.  Seriously.  As I was walking to the restroom, I heard my name.  I looked around, and saw 2 ladies that were in one of my brother's class.  I hadn't seem them in a long, long time.  I also saw a few of my classmates.

2.  The 1st half of the UT game.  Only the first half.  The score at halftime:  13-13.  The score at the end of the game:  48-13.  I think they have a lot of work to do.  Florida is coming to town on Saturday.  Let's hope they can string 4 good quarters together.

3.  MS going to school close by.  He and a few of his new friends came by on Tuesday night for about an hour.  If he lived farther away, I wouldn't have a chance to meet his friends or have him come by expectantly.  (Sorry, AuburnChick... I'm not rubbing it in!) It's nice to know that he has chosen friends who appear to be good people and have their heads on straight.

4.  An intern who knows what she's doing.  Yep, I have another intern this semester.  I'm convinced that having grad students as interns is completely different than having undergrad students.  

5.  A new blog to read:  Jeannie's Happy World.  Jeannie is an army wife who just moved to Italy.  She has just started some new Thursday posts:  Queen Lessons.  Intrigued?  You should be!  I can't wait to become the queen I know I can be!  It's not too late to get started:  she just posted  an introduction today. My friend Karen blogged about the Queen Lessons, and I hopped on the train!

And, a "bonus" favorite of the week.  This is a commercial that I saw on Saturday.  Love it!

Don't forget Follow Friday 40 and Over!


  1. My brother-in-law is a big fan of UT football, so I imagine that he shares your sentiments on that. :)

  2. That commercial is hilarious! Happy Friday!

  3. Grannies with an attitude! Love it!

  4. I think our Lo is going to college close by too, and this thrills me.
    Love that commercial...so cute!
    have a great weekend!

  5. It's too bad that football game got so lopsided after the 1st half.

    #3 made me sigh. So nice to have your kids coming by once they go off to school somewhere. Mine is way to far away for that and I really miss it. I don't know any of her friends anymore.

    I'm going to check out that blog link. You have me intrigued.

  6. Patty said it... Grannies with tude! Love it.

    Yay for your son being closer!!

  7. I enjoy finding new blogs to read! :)

  8. Thank you for the kind comment you left on my blog.


  9. Thanks for sharing the commercial with the grannies. Hilarious!

    It's great that your son lives close enough to drop by ... my daughter moved out this summer but she is only 20 miles away. That really helps a first time empty nester!

  13. Get together's for football games are fun and Friday's are a bonus.

    I love the granny commercial, funny and great video.

    I'll bookmark my things to do list to visit Jeannies Happy World to see about getting close to being a Queen, I'm ready to give up the title of "Queen of Frugality"

  14. I've always enjoyed high school and college sports more so then the pros!
    Sorry about that final score. What a great treat for your son to bring some friends by. It's great when our kids are comfortable doing that.
    Have a great weekend.

  15. Oh yeah! That commercial is great! Love it. Finally, when our fourth child started college, we lived close enough that she was able to come home on weekends and bring her friends. It was wonderful!

  16. LOVE that commercial Mary! Thanks for sharing and for the laughs!!

    Have a great Sunday!!


  17. Still can't figure out where you find those videos! This one is funny!
