{SUYL: Blogger Connect}

Once again, I am linking up with Kelly's Korner for another "Show Us Your Life" series.  Today's topic is a blogger connect for "Single Bloggers Over 30"...that's me!
 
Howdy!  My name is Casey & I am new to this whole blogging thing.  I have wanted to start a blog for a long time, but never knew what I would write about since I am not married & don't have kiddos to post cute photos of.  A little over a month ago, I decided what the heck & started a blog...even if no one ever reads it. But, I would love for you to follow me.  Hello...I ONLY have 3 followers...how sad is that?!?! =)  The title of my blog: Faith, Football & Fairy Tales came to me one day & instantly I knew it was PERFECT!  No, my life isn't a fairy tale, but I do believe in them...I just haven't found my "happily ever after" yet.
 
I was born & raised in the great state of Texas.  I live in a small town that still has parades thru downtown several times a year & where practically every one in the town goes to the high school football game on Friday night.  And I LOVE it!  I recently sold my first home & am about to begin construction on my new house in the next few months.  For now, I am living back at home with my parents...which is always interesting when you are 34!

As much as I love living in a small town, I still love to travel to the big cities {especially ones in the north in the winter}.  I often question why I live in Texas because I HATE the heat.  And lets face it, it's hot about 10 months out of the year here.  I have traveled to Chicago, Washington DC, & New York City to name a few.  NYC is by far my favorite place to travel.  I am headed there again this December for the 7th time...there is nothing more magical than New York City at Christmastime.   
 I am a graduate of Texas A&M University, Class of 2001. Whoop!  I LOVE football, especially Aggie football.  I am really enjoying our recent move to the SEC {the BIG game is this weekend...BTHO bama!!}.  These football road trips are WAY more fun than Austin, Waco & Lubbock.  I have a group of lady friends who love Aggie football as much as I do so we hope to travel to as many SEC schools as possible over the next few years.  Last year, we went to the A&M/Ole Miss game {tailgating in the Grove was an awesome experience} & to the Cotton Bowl.  This year, we are headed to the A&M/Arkansas game at the end of the month & to the A&M/LSU game in November.  We are thinking Alabama & Auburn in 2014.  I. CANNOT. Wait.
I have been blessed with an amazing family.  I am the "middle child" & only girl; I have an older brother & a younger brother.  I have a nephew & niece who I adore and love spending time with.  Sleepovers at Aunt Casey's are always fun.  I may or may not allow my niece to eat chocolate in bed, at midnight, while watching Disney Junior. =)  I have equally amazing friends.  I am still friends with my 2 best friends from elementary school...we have been friends for 25+ years!!  How cool is that?!?
 
Thanks for stopping by & Gig'em!

  1. Stopping by from KK but I have to say (if you look at my blog title) that I am a Roll Tide girl! lol I am just hoping for a great game Saturday and I'm kinda scared! lol I hvaen't visited NYC but I most certainly hope to and there is no other time that I would want to go than Christmas! And on another note, at the end of this year, I'm moving from PHX to Austin! Heck, even I might embrace A&M - when they aren't playing Bama of course!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Unfortunately I don't have tickets to the game tomorrow {I just can't part with $350+ for a ticket, but am heading up in the morning to tailgate & soak up the atmosphere. I think it's going to awesome! I too am hoping for a good game...and a win would certainly be nice! :) Good luck with your move to Austin & welcome to Texas!
