Sadly, due to Hurricane Isaac the officials have decided to postpone the game to October 13. Better to be safe than sorry!
It appears that my birthday and the state of Louisiana just do not seem to get along! In 2008 we tried to celebrate my birthday in New Orleans before being evacuated for Hurricane Gustav after a short 16 hour trip.
Since the game was the main reason we were making the drive to Shreveport this weekend, we decided to nix those plans and just chill out at home. Thankfully the hubs is going to take me out to dinner so my birthday won't be a total wash.
In related news, my mom's co-worker Anita surprised me with a very sweet welcome to the SEC basket!
The card even plays the Aggie War Hymm! Other fun items in the bowl (which will be great for chips or popcorn while watching the game) included wine, chocolates, cocktail napkins, maroon and white popcorn, car magnets and a very useful reusable bag.
