House Divided... Arkansas Vs. KSU Cotton Bowl 2012

I'mmmm BACK!!!!! Life has been crazy busy, not to mention my poor computer has been dropped one to many times. It's about to go into the shop but I wanted to catch up on some blogs first. My goal is to blog once or twice a week until I'm caught up. You may see some old blogs I started last year but never posted.

I'm going to start out this year like I did 2011! RAZORBACK football! Travis and I were extremely excited our teams finally got to play each other in the Cotton Bowl. My kids have known the Hog Call since birth and now Travis thought it was time to teach them some K-State chants. They would get the two teams confused and call them Razorcats! How cute is that?. I thought it was perfect.

We started our festivities with the K-State pep rally at Ranger Ballpark. At the last minute I threw this KSU cheerleading outfit on Chloe that was 3-6 month in size. Well we made it work. ( I won't mention how many Razorback outfits they both have...oops). Travis was super excited to share this experience with the kids. Originally when I was getting ready I had on a grey sweater (trying to stay neutral), then Travis walked through the bathroom and said.. "your Dad would be ashamed of you right now." I quickly changed into some Arkansas RED. What was I thinking?!! We all had such a great time. All the K-state fans were very nice to me. Travis was proud of me too. Ha! Ha

The kids couldn't wait to get their picture with Willie the Wildcat.

I didn't want to do it but they made me... (I was freezing bc I had a sweater over this top)


Cotton Bowl Day
The next day I woke up with a serious migraine. I've never had a headache that bad before in my life (at least not from drinking lol)! I was taking every medication imaginable to get me to the game. This chick was not missing it for ANYTHING!!!!
I made it!

Despite of my headache and sitting on the K-State side, I had a great time with my hubby and my sister from another mister Lara and stepson Preston. SEC baby!

Arkansas Vs. Kansas State facts...
They have only played each other 3 times in school history (now 4).
It's been 44 years since the team have met on the football field.
Oct 28 1967 Arkansas beat KSU 28-7 in Little Rock at War Memorial Field
Before that KSU beat Arkansas in 1910 and 1911.

2012 Arkansas beats KSU 29-16 in the Cotton Bowl.

To sum it all up. Although I was so excited to see our teams play each other. It's never fun to see your husband sad over a loss. Lets just say it was a bitter/sweet win!
