Job #3

I tease Andy all the time that I have 3 jobs. It is sort of true and sort of not true. I work my regular job everyday (the one that causes me to be in the office), then after that job I head on over to either soccer practice or a game (this job only lasts 3 months so is it really job #2, I'm not sure), then recently on the weekends I have been leaving my sweet, sweet husband and traveling all over the south to SEC Women's College Soccer Games. I get to commentate the games and it is so much fun. That is part of the reason that it does not really feel like a job, I love doing it and I get to watch really awesome soccer games. The travel can be tough and I don't really like being away from Andy, but it is only for 5 weekends and my last one is this weekend. I will be traveling to Alabama to watch Tennessee take on Alabama in Tuscaloosa. I am excited, relieved, happy and little bit sad. I am excited to go and do the job itself, did I tell you that it is so much fun! Relieved that it is almost over and I will get to spend some weekends at home. Happy that I can see Andy more on the weekends. Sad because it is almost over and I am not sure that I am ready for it to be almost over. At any rate, all things come to an end and I am not sure that I will be asked to do this again. If I don't, I am okay with that, it was so much fun and a wonderful experience. I was very lucky to get this job, even if it doesn't always feel like work...did I mention that I had SO MUCH FUN!!!

So that I don't have to send you away without a picture, this is what I look like at my job #3 if you have not seen me on TV.

The guy in the picture is Chris Stewart. He does all kinds of broadcasting work for Alabama and is really great at his job. He has helped me so much and is so nice and funny. I hope that if I do get to do this job again that I get to work with him. Since this weekends game is Tennessee at Alabama I am sure that it will be fun in the booth. We will just have to wait and see whose team comes up with the win!!! The game is on Sunday on CSS so you should check it out!!

love always,

you can stop counting

the babe is here!! I would like to introduce you all to Hayden Dean Watson in all his cute glory. He joined us on 10/14/09 at 4:56pm, weighing 7 lbs and 12 ozs and was 21 in long. He is too cute and the apple of his sister's eye. Reece was awesome with him and I know that she is going to be an awesome big sister. The best part of all of this was that Doc made it back to Knoxville on 10/13/09 at 4pm and his baby boy waited just 24 hours later before he met his father. Hayden has perfect timing. Just so you all know, I love him already! Here are two pics from yesterday when Reece and I went to visit him.
Here is the sweet boy!

Here is Reece, Tori, Hayden and baby Ava (Reece's baby)!

What do you think? Do they look alike?



love always,

the countdown is on...

This picture was taken 23 months ago today. Can you believe how tiny she is?! Please ignore us we look terrible. Ha!

Reece Bennett Watson entered this world and captured our hearts. We love her more and more each day. She went from this: her bink looks bigger than her.

To this,

and now to this, she is such a big girl and soon to be a big sister.

Reece is ready to welcome her baby brother Hayden, any day now. She is going to be the best big sister and Andy and I cannot wait to snuggle and sniff (you all should no that I love to sniff a baby's head, there is really nothing sweeter and I know it is weird.) this sweet baby boy. Tori and Doc we love you and are so happy to welcome your new baby boy!!! I promise, tons of pictures when he gets here!!

love always,

i went missing, i know

So sorry for the long delay in posting, and I hate to keep saying it but I have been B.U.S.Y! I am still working my normal 8-5 job, and then coaching in the afternoons. I thought that last year I was busy doing that and did not think that I could add anything to my plate, but I did.
I was called a few weeks ago to see if I would be interested in doing some broadcasting. Now, this is totally something that is Kara's department and not mine but I thought that it would be a great experience so I agreed to do it. It is 5 Sunday SEC Women's Soccer games so it is talking about something that I am totally passionate about. Soccer, women's soccer and the SEC. I have already done three games and have two left. I am tired, but it has been so much fun and I have learned so much. I have been busy prepping during the week for the upcoming game, and watching film of the teams, and learning on a smaller scale of what Kara does for her espn gig.

Here are some picture of where I have been. Can you figure out where? Think SEC!
Here is game 1:

I forgot to take a picture at game 2: it was Lexington, KY to watch Tennessee take on Kentucky!

Game 3:

love always,
