Pink Out and Clinics!

This past weekend while I was on my road trip Zach went to a coaching clinic in Stillwater at Oklahoma State. He really enjoyed it and I think they had a great time. Good news- my car got all the way there and back without any problems- a success in itself. One of his favorite stories was from one of the speakers who discussed the saying "never be a sometimes player." Zach really liked this and I have a feeling that it will be used a lot in his coaching philosophy. Also, it wouldn't be Zach if he didn't come back with some great food story! He ate at this one place (I will have to ask him what it was called again and update it later) but he got almost a whole chicken on his plate with a massive bowl of nachos- the head coach got a side of okra instead of nachos and it was like a serving bowl full of fried okra. He said it was some of the best he has ever tasted. *News to any restaurant trying to please my husband- intense portion sizes will be extremely impressive in his eyes!*

Because we were both out of town we had to board MJ. He was soooo NOT happy about this. Because of my schedule I had to pick him up at 8:30 AM on monday. They always give the dogs a bath on the day that they leave, but since I picked him up so early- he got a bath but was still wet. He was angry at us for many reasons! 1. He was left alone all weekend 2. He had to get his boardatella up his nose to keep him up to date on his shots 3. He was soaking wet and it was freezing outside 4. He is a big fat baby and hates being boarded. He cried, barked, and whimpered in the waiting room when I picked him up- so embarrassing! He has since recovered from his episode of being a brat.

Tonight is our huge Breast Cancer Awareness Night at the volleyball game. We have put a lot of time into planning everything. We got cute shirts for the girls. They are hot pink and say Cameron Aggies on them- but the "A" in aggies is the breast cancer ribbon. We are selling pink carnations and all of the profits go to breast cancer research. The girls have pink shoe laces that they got at the beginning of the month and will have pink ribbons for their hair. We have put up signs everywhere encouraging people to come wearing their pink- we are calling it a "pink out." Unfortunately we will be competing with the Halloween party thrown by student activities- so hopefully we will still have a good turnout. I will put a post up tomorrow with an update and hopefully some pictures. Oh and anyone who reads this today- text or call Zach to tell him to wear pink tonight. I think I am fighting a losing battle on that one! Maybe you all can help! Picture courtesy of
