A {Black and Gold Getaway} SBOW

The word is “Fight! Fight! Fight! for IOWA”,

Let every loyal Iowan sing;

The word is “Fight! Fight! Fight! for IOWA,” 

Until the walls and rafters ring (Go Hawks!)
Come on and cheer, cheer, cheer, for IOWA
Come on and cheer until you hear the final gun.
The word is “Fight! Fight! Fight! for IOWA,” 

Until the game is won.

Are you ready for some football?

We are heading to the windy city this weekend for a MUCH needed couples vacation. No kids, no worries, just us and some football. Ahhhh, life is good.

My week has been pretty chaotic due to this vacation. It amazes me how much work I need to do in order to just leave for two day, but I guess that’s the life of a working mom. Rushing to and from work, pick ups, drop offs and school activities.

Thus, the vacation.

So while we are cheering on my beloved Hawkeyes I’ll share this week’s Sound Bytes.

3. “Now that I’m out of your belly I don’t have to eat it.”

In reference to the cheese soup I was eating this week. I told E that I used to eat it all the time while I was pregnant with him and that he would probably really like it. He took one look and made the scrunchy face.

2. “Hey mom and dad, did you know I’m going on a field trip soon.”
“Really where?”
“To Africa, so I’ll be gone a while.”

Hmmm, well ok then. I guess sometime in the next month they are leaving. I hope he has his passport ready.

1. “labbalalsl Go Iwa”

This is G’s version of the Iowa Fight song. He better be singing it when we trounce Northern Illinois.

What did you hear this week?

Well, that’s it from the road.

GO HAWKS!!!! {Boo Cubs}
