As summer vacation heads into its final weeks, people all over the country (especially in the South) start getting excited about the advent of football season. While NFL is a bigger deal in other areas of our nation, college football is practically a religion down here, and it heavily influences our calendars starting in late August through the end of the year. Southern brides planning fall weddings will consult major college football schedules when choosing a date to ensure that people will actually show up for their event, and even still, they can almost bank on some of the guests listening to games secretly with headphones while vows are being exchanged.

I see the exact same thin happening with our pink feathered friends, and although I’m sure we will hit the level of overload at some point, I’m going to enjoy it for now. 1) Mud Pie Flamingo Little Girls Swimwear-Okay my girls went BERSERK when they saw this swimsuit!
