best kept secret in the south

 If you are not from the south, college football is probably not a huge deal to you. If you are from the south & college football is still no big deal...then I am not sure what is wrong with you. I grew up cheering on the Georgia Bulldawgs but spent my first 5 years of adult-life in the best kept secret south of the Mason Dixon line: Oxford, MS....home of the Ole Miss Rebels. I adore this small college town and & the Black Bears Rebels .  Seriously, I love it. There is nothing more fun than spending a Saturday in the fall tailgating in the Grove! 
 We spent our Labor Day weekend in Oxford with our friends, Whitney & Matt. Thankfully they never left Oxford so we always have a place to stay! winning!
 This was Grayson's first time to tailgate in the Grove. I wasn't sure how he would do because a)it was about 97 degrees, b)it was during nap time, and c) there are about a gazillion people there. Grayson was a champ! He had so much fun walking around & "talking" to people. He loved seeing dogs, eating chicken tenders (shocker), and trying to steal adult beverages out of the coolers. Ha!
I love this. He felt so big with his sippy cup listening to the big boys!
 I stayed in the Grove for about 3 hours & left right before the game. Ben went with Whitney & Matt. Sadly, we lost to BYU. Again, shocker. G and I went shopping on the Square during the game. I'll take that!

 My little Rebel looked so cute in his game day outfit! We will be wearing this every weekend until it's cold. I ordered it off of Etsy from Cappy's Closet. She has lots of other SEC schools and makes cute jon jons & dresses!
Being back in Oxford always makes me want to move back so bad. I miss the small town charm and I miss my best friend. I'm so glad we got to have our grove experience this year...here's to hoping we actually win a few games this season! Hotty Toddy!

Love the outfit! We love us some college football too! However, we are a house divided... Poor Kendall is torn between UK & UL!
