What's that, Coaches Poll? You think the UNLV Runnin' Rebels are the #21 team in the nation? Why, how observant of you!
I loooove these boys. You probably didn't know that.
They played incredible and fought really hard to beat Louisville. And it was soooo fun to watch them do it, even though me and JLev had a slight seating mishap and switched seats 5 times. It turned out to be good luck, I guess! I just love that feeling when your team just won a big game and everyone is celebrating and at that moment, nothing else really matters. Just the victory. BEST. FEELING. EVER.
We love our rebels.

PS We met Holly from Girls Next Door at a game a couple weeks ago (don't act like you don't know who she is!). She was super nice and loved to be a rebs fan for the day before she had to run off to her nakey show.

giving thanks. Dixon style.

Thanksgiving was precious. The Dixon side brought lots and lots of delicious food, and some great company. I made a few new little cousin friends. Love them... shout out to Emily because I know you stalk!! I just love thanksgiving... everyone is in a good mood. And it's an excuse to eat a ridiculous amount. Have you ever tried the chocolate satin pie from Marie Callendars? I recommend it. Highly. You know what I also recommend? The Blind Side!! It was incredible and just made me want to do every good deed in the world. Oh, and adopt a black child. It's on my list. I'm thankful for cool family and amazing friends and good food and inspirational movies. Oh, and pictures too.

all hallows eve

Oh, halloween. I just don't really like you that much! I mean, it was really fun seeing all the kiddos parade around the school in their cute little costumes. And having elementary school halloween parties with lots of candy and treats and games. I like that part. But grown up halloween just isn't that cool! It's stressful figuring out what to dress up as, and if you don't dress up, you're considered really lame and boring. So, me and Britt improvised with stuff we already had and decided to be our most favorite Dillon Panther, Tim Riggins. Well, the girl versions of Tim Riggins. If anything, H-ween is a fun time to wear more makeup than you ever would in your life and take lots of pictures. It's also really entertaining to see people suddenly turn into skanks for a night and loooove it. So strange. Anyways, party hopping was decent and we had a really great time throwing candy at party-goers. Good times, good times.
Some of our friends dressed up as secret service agents and one was Obama... it was hysterical. He would stop the parties and give speeches and some Asian tourists at Denny's totally bought it and were taking pictures with him... classic.

Oh, Halloween. We have such a love/hate relationship.
