When Nick and I decided to live in Montgomery, we had many plans about what we would do and how we would live. One thing we were really excited about was being close to Auburn. We planned to go to all the home games. We are only 40 minutes away. Why not go to the games?

Well, last season, Nick had to work almost every weekend. I went to more games than he did! This season has not been much better. Needless to say, we have not taken full advantage of our location. So when Nick found some free ticket to the homecoming game this weekend, we could not pass up this opportunity to be in Auburn for the day.

We picked up a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts (I ate 3) and drove on to Auburn. We parked far away and walked to the stadium. We got there right in time for kickoff. It was a beautiful day! We enjoyed a hot dog and boiled peanuts at the game. To make things even better, Auburn won! We left during the 3rd quarter and drove back home. We did not spend a lot of time in Auburn, but we still had a lot of fun! Even though Auburn is not our home, we are still deeply connected to the town. We did spend 4 years of our lives there. We met each other while living in Auburn. It is a town of memories and reunions with friends. We thoroughly enjoyed this homecoming!

The view from our seats. We were up really high, but we had a great view. The only eye-sore is Haley Center. The building where I spent most of my college career.

The alumni band played along with current band after the homecoming girls left the field.


  1. Lucy -- I almost wrote an e-mail to you saying that I missed your blogging. I LOVE to hear what you and Nick are up to. It looks like a gorgeous weekend!!

    Looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans.

  2. Lucy, glad you got to go to the game together! I love your pictures.
