This weekend Ben and I went down to College Station to see an Aggie football game and celebrate Matt getting his Aggie Ring! Uncle Alex and Aunt Mendy kept Kinley....I think all went well and they are all recovered now. 24 hours with a baby that isn't your own is tough, even if it is your niece! But, they were SUPER sweet about it all and I think they had a good time.
Of course, since I was heading to Aggieland and to a hot, hot football game, I had to make an A&M T-shirt dress! I am aware that this makes me look like I am trying to be in college still but, I have always wanted to make one and it beat spending $65 to buy one like this or even $50 for one like this. Instead, I used an old t-shirt I had and 1 yard of black jersey knit fabric from Hobby Lobby for $2.40 to make my dress! My dad showed up in the same T-shirt that I made my dress out of...so, we were twins! Love it!
Matt will be graduating in May with a Finance degree and is Class of 2011. We are so proud of him! He is so smart and fun, a great friend to everyone, and just a blast to be around. He is such a sweet brother and was so excited that we came down to celebrate with him. We missed our other Aggie siblings, Bart & Olivia, but, it was a blast to be there with some of our family and celebrate with Matt! Uncle Ben and Brooke and her friend Rachel came down for the game too. They got a quick glimpse into college life and some Aggie traditions!
The game was not stellar on behalf of the football team but, we won, our seats were awesome and I always love a flyover and the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band! If you haven't been to a game in Kyle Field....it is quite and experience!
After the game, Matt took part in the Aggie tradition of dunking his ring. This is a time-honored tradition at A&M for seniors who get their class ring.
