We All Bleed Red

At the Ole Miss Atlanta Alumni Event in Chastain Park, GA

The title of this post is from a new song by Ronnie Dunn "Bleed Red" about different type of people all really the same because we bleed red when cut.  That is kind of how I felt today at the Mississippi Colleges Alumni Event in Chastain Park today.  There were representatives from all the Mississippi Colleges and wouldn't you know everyone had a tent. 

I went with my husband Kyle to my left and Laura and her friend Michael, pictured above. Laura is a dear friend and we celebrated our college and school spirit at the annual Mississippi college Alumni Event.  We were both in the same sorority there and we have the best memories.  I like that we were all color coordinating and wearing reds/pinks and blues.  You know pink is one of my favorite colors.

The event was catered by some different places: McAlister's provided the home-style sweet tea.  Sugaree Bakery provided the delicious caramel cake, and there was of course Mississippi fried catfish, hush puppies and french fries.  It was yummy for sure!

The best part was just talking with Laura and hanging out in the shade under a summer tent listening to the band play in the background.  They were playing all sorts of music!  Reminded me of being back in the Grove.  There is nothing quite like the Grove, but it was nice to see all the Mississippi schools represented there.  Bringing a taste of MS to GA was definitely a good time.
