Gig 'em Ashley

or

If you live in Texas, you know the BIGGEST state college rivalry is between the University of Texas Longhorns & the Aggies of Texas A&M. Even if you didn't attend either school, somehow you gravitate to cheering for one of the teams (unless you went to Texas Tech who reportedly hates them both equally). Both schools are steeped in tradition, have super sports teams, and superior academic programs.

Well, truth be told, we are UT people. Lindy proudly displays her Hook 'em Horns sign and loves pointing out all the Longhorns she sees. However, she is getting some coaching from the outside to become an Aggie fan because look what she received in the mail last week from her favorite Aggie, Ashley--a senior at A&M...

Oh no, what will all my Longhorn friends think??? Please don't tell them...



Well, this pink shirt really is so much prettier than burnt orange...

This gig 'em is for you Ashley. I love you, love the shirt, and can't wait for the next time you come home because I miss you.

Thank you for sending the shirt, Ashley. We will think of you, your entire family, and all our other Aggie friends when she wears it.

I think it is fine, as long as you don't take her out in public like that. Poor little thing. :-) I can't believe Ashley is already a senior!

Lindy looks too sweet in her good ol' A&M (I am a fan, but I come from a long line of Longhorn fans, so burnt orange it is!)

My nephew painted his room the burnt orange, that is the extent to the devotion!

Hope you all are well.
Love and Hugs,
Heather

Well if she is not just the cutest thing in her t-shirt. She would be adorable in anything she has on. :)
How are you doing with "the wait"? I am doing better this week. Last week was not good but I do know that it is all in His timing, not mine. Let's just keep praying for each other and standing in the gap.

Lisa- this is the first time I've had a chance to check out your blog. Lindy is SO adorable! I would love to add you to my favorite links if that's okay. :)

Thanks again for all the encouragement and prayers the last couple of weeks!

Lindy .... I give you a "thumbs up" for wearing the RIGHT school proudly on your chest! Martine kids bleed maroon and will proudly tell you so ... even your bud, Maliah! HAHA
Your such a cutie.
