Usually I don't have trouble with this sort of thing... I mean normally my poor little brain is planning and scheming months in advance. Yes, normally, it just isn't normal that I'm planning details about events sometimes a full year before they actually happen (I mean really.. I've been worry about our Christmas schedule for a few months now, when I realized that Christmas is on Sunday this year, and we usually have 4 different stops to make NOT counting church....)

But here I was just weeks before poor Piercey's birthday with no grand idea or inspiration or theme of any sort. Poor Pierce. I just wrote it off as normal 2nd child syndrome. Let's just do a simple low key celebration. We'll just go theme-less and have boyish colors... and that'll be that.

Then, it hit me!
The OBVIOUS answer, of course, for a family who is football obsessed and one, in which every person feels very strongly about one of these teams, and for a boy's birthday, who will inevitably fall around this important 3rd weekend of September each year... yes the same weekend that these two rivals battle it out year after year. Of course, Pierce should have a Florida/TN tailgating party. When you think about it, there's just really no other option! =)

So, as you can imagine, once inspiration hit... the ideas quickly began to flow! Of course, Allie is already a "gator girl" at heart, like her mama, so she will, naturally be sporting her cheerleading outfit to the party, but I've generously decided to allow Pierce to go to the "dark side" and sport orange and white, like a true daddy's boy. Especially, since I found him a jersey with a 1 one it! So, stay tuned for the big day, because pictures are sure to be cute! =)
