Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.45/Are You Ready To PARTY?

I'm soooo READY for the BIG PARTY tonight...MY #1 AUBURN TIGERS are playing for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE and I'm very pumped!!! We have had an AUsome year and if you have been around me for any length of time, then you know I'm a HUGE AUBURN FAN...I spend most of my Fall weekends in Auburn watching my tigers play. This year I attended six home games and was lucky to get a special ticket for the SEC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME...this was by far my all time favorite game! Mr.CC and I had plans to be in Auburn today to watch the game at our new arena on campus, but because of the ICE STORM those plans have been cancelled :(. I called last night and cancelled our hotel room...that was very hard for me, but I had no choice. I'm praying very hard that power will not go out during game time in Auburn, because all these students (including my very own Mary Claire) so deserve to see their team play in this BIG game...I ask you to say a prayer too. I'm very concerned that these young adults understand the danger of ICY roads...so please also pray that they will stay off the roads and stay SAFE! With all the excitement of the upcoming game, I made an AUBURN tree in my foyer that I will share with you today...I can say that it's a THRIFTY tree to some degree...came right out of my yard here at COASTAL CHARM, but all those game tickets are not very THRIFTY...oh well! I will warn you that this is a very long post, so please hang in there with me...I have lots to share! Thanks for coming today and I hope you have a fun time here at my party...so let's get this party started!
                                                         Hope y'all come back...real soon,
                                                                              Linda
                                                Such a CUTIE PIE...I just LOVE AUBIE!!!


                                                     
                                      Mr.CC and I with the SEC CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY!


                                                     
                           


                              I'm sure there will be a ton of these cute AUBURN snowmen in the
                                                           state of Alabama today!
                                                                  ESPN GAMEDAY!!!

                                        Here we are at Toomer's Corner after a big WIN!
                                        Having a fun time with my sister at the LSU game!        
                           Giving CAM NEWTON a high five...love this AUsome TIGER!!!
                                   I'm so proud that we have such a wonderful christian man as our
                                    head coach...thanks Gene for all you do for these young men!
                     I'm so happy that I got to do a lot of this during our season this year...WAR EAGLE!
                                Our AUsome seats at the SEC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!
                                 I so hope the next trophy that these young men will be holding up
                             will be a crystal football...I know you can do it guys...it's only 60 minutes!
                  If we WIN tonight...my front yard will look like TOOMER'S CORNER...yes I'm going
                                  to roll my own yard...what can I say...it's just in the blood!!!

I love the Auburn tree, soooo cute! Thank Goodness the worse did not come about, no loss of power so GAME ON! Daughter is going with some friends to a local restaurant to watch the game (her hubby - Ala. fan - is staying home with the twins) but I think we'll stay in with the fire going all toasty and warm. This is going to be an AUe-some game.....WAR "CAM" EAGLE my friend!

I love your tree. I found the trip to Arizona to be a little un-thrifty~ so I came to Boston to watch the game with my sister.
We'll be wearing our orange and blue tonight too.

Your tree is just the cutest. I LOVE football and have been glued to the TV. I am all set with tons of snacks for the BCS tonight. Sorry, I am rooting for Oregon. I lived there for 18 yrs and my son still lives there. I just have to. Whoever wins it is a thrill they have done so well this year. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

So sorry the weather keeps you from going to the game. I am not a football fan at all, but my daughter is a huge Ga. fan and her best friend and her parents went to Auburn and of course are huge fans. Cute vignettes.

Mr. Sweet is all settled in for the ballgame right now. I don't give a flyin' flip for football (unless a grandson is playing.):))

Hi Linda,
I don't have anything to link tonight but I wanted to let you know we are watching the big game at our house tonight and cheering Auburn on! My son goes to Ole Miss so we have to cheer for the SEC team! I told him what a big Auburn fan you were so I grabbed my computer and showed him your post.
Have fun cheering your team on!
Jane

Donnie said...

What a fun time you all are having. Stay safe and warm.

I messed up when I put my first kink up. Missed the l in html. So I redid it but don't know how to get the first one off. Hope I didn't mess you up.

Blue Creek Home said...

I can't believe I made the party and right in the middle of the ballgame!!!! I had to have a distraction - It's killin' me! I KNOW the second half is when the magic is going to happen!

I hate you guys had to cancel your trip to Auburn to watch the game...even more $$$ for the upcoming wedding!
Love the football tree.

You must be over the moon this morning! Congrats on the BCS win! I'm a Cali gal (no hopes for Cal for a few years) and my nephew now plays pro for the Falcons. But it was a great game - down to that last minute!

Thanks for hosting too!

Heather said...

Yay war eagles!! As soon as the game was over, the first thing I thought was, "It's loud in Linda's house right now!" I can only imagine how much TP is hanging from the trees right now.

Ann said...

Congratulations to you and all the other Auburn fans!! Happy, Happy New Year!!!
Fondly,

Now I thought for sure I'd be getting a note that you were coming to Arizona to watch the game and needed a place to stay. I would've said yes!

Congratulations on the win! I was at the hockey rink watching the game. Go figure.

Take care,

Lisa

Gail said...

Congrats Linda on your Auburn Tigers National Championship. When I heard they won this morning I was so excited for you! I know their was some celebrating going on in your house last night.

Enjoy your evening,

Heather@myeverydaygraces said...

Congrats... last night was a rough one for this Duck:) Great game, exciting to the end.

Thanks for hosting.

Jane said...

WAR DAMN EAGLE!!! Wasn't that a fabulous game?!!! We had a crowd here, cheering on our beloved Tigers.

Love your tree!!! I'll have to remember this idea for next season...

Perhaps next season, we can meet up at the pregame festivities...Our friends have a gameday condo, just down from Mama Goldberg's. It's great, especially with the short walk to the stadium, but I do miss our spot by Mary Martin...

Jane (artfully graced)

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Dayna said...

Roll Tide!!! I detest Auburn, but I have to admit that Cam's speech at the end of the game was good. He sounds like a nice guy who's Momma must've raised right. Congrats.

Best to you,
Lynn @ Cottage and Creek
