TV and Modeling: Fail

My college friend and Tri Delt sister, Randi has recently launched a website called Passionately Rivalicious.  Her stuff is all things college gameday and beyond!  They carry some really really cute stuff for the littles and for the grown fans!  
Passionaltely Rivalicious was invited to do a feature on UATV and they were wanting kids to model their outfits in order to get pictures for their site.
I was beyond honored that Randi approached me about Cilla and I being a part of this.  However, we are at a stage right now that groups and uncertainty overwhelm our little munchkin.  So, I hesitantly agreed but not without warning Randi!
Well, she may have been sorry she asked us to take part because Cilla was in rare form and did little to participate.  I knew when she didn't have an afternoon nap, it was going to be BAD!  But, I couldn't back out, I didn't want to let my friend (if she will still be my friend) down!!!
At first they asked Cilla to wear a tutu outfit and that was a no go.  She refused.  Threw a fit.  Made a scene.  Embarrassed me.  You get the idea.  So we found something a little more accommodating  but still cute!  After she was finally dressed, all she wanted for me to do was hold her.  Perfect for getting pictures and being on TV, right?!?!
She finally settled in and became a little more comfortable and decided to cooperate...just a tiny bit.  By the time it was time to be on TV she did pretty good.
By the end of the night she was really good!!!  Randi brought iced cookies from Rick's to reward all the little ones and Cilla was in hog heaven!  Here is a little video of her eating her cookie!
 So, Randi called and asked if Cilla would be up for a mini photo shoot before heading off to school the next morning.  I, once again, hesitantly agreed.  We got a few pictures this time around.  Not the best, but we got some.  You can't have too high of expectations when dealing with a nineteen month old.
Be sure and check out Passionately Rivalicious!  You will not be disappointed.

Pumpkin Patch

Friday evening we went to the pumpkin patch.  We met our friends from playgroup, including the dads!  It was fun to be around everyone with their family.  There was a petting zoo, a corn maze, a corn cannon, a cow train and of course, Pumpkins!!!  It was a wonderful crisp fall night! 
However, Cilla was in rare form.  She loved petting the goats, but other than that all she wanted me to do was hold her. Flint has been traveling a lot this fall with work and I think it is taking a toll on her.  She has been so clingy!
I got her on the cow train with her friends for about 45 seconds.  Just long enough for a picture!  
And that was it!  She was off before the ride ever left the station!

You never know what you are going to get with an nineteen month old!  At least I tried, right?!?!

We are well into football season and quite a season it has been!!!  We have been to some fun football games and have had several fun visitors this fall!  

Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE the spirit of football season!?!?  And now that it is starting to feel a lot more like fall here in Arkansas, it makes it that much more wonderful!!!

First of all, I wanted to give a HOLY TURF update!  It is in full swing and keeping Flint on his toes.  There are some really good articles that I thought some of you football lov'in gals might like.  Check out the "FOR WOMEN" section.  There are several articles about all the cute football fashions around the south.  The latest one is Texas-style.  But, if that is not YOUR style there are also articles from several other SEC schools!  
While you are visiting Holy Turf, check out the ad for Ketch the Spirit!!!  They have some really cute game day attire that I think any girl would LOVE!

I don't know how you make a decision!!!

   There are also lots of YUM-O tailgating recipes on HOLY TURF.  If you are like me, you get in a rut and make the same finger foods week after week.  This is a good opportunity to get a few fresh ideas!  And Flint thought that girls might also be interested in the new Bowl Projections article!  He said this might determine your New Year's plans!  This is only a projection, but might help you start some planning!   
Check it all out, then tell then football lov'in men in your life about it!

I also wanted to include some pictures of what we have been up to this fall!  

Our friends came into town for the heartbreaking Arkansas/Alabama game.
Here are Harper and Cilla jumping in the bounce house at sweet Stella's birthday party!  These are two cute little Razorback fans if I have ever seen any!!!  Stella's party was so so cute!  It was Mickey Mouse themed and absolutely precious and fun!  They even served "Hot Diggity Dog" hot dogs!  Now that is creative, isn't it?!?!  The daddy's went to the game and the girls stayed at home to help Stella celebrate her birthday and to cheer on the Hogs.  As always we had a fun time with the Pardue family!

Then, we headed to Texas (for a week) to watch the Hogs take on the Aggies at Cowboy Stadium.  Daddy was the only one that actually went to the game.  Again, us girls stayed behind.  But, since we got to spend time in Dallas with my bestie, Laura, it was worth it.
Cilla loved playing with Braysen's baby toys.  Funny how that works!
 Me, Cilla, Braysen, and Laura
We have two kiddos and both have their hands in their mouths!
Here are Flint and Corby outside of the stadium...

I have lots more cute pictures of our trip to Texas.  I will post them soon.  For now, I have to go chase my toddler around.  She is about to raid the pantry!
