Auntie Pam's Originals

I LOVE this shirt, I think it is adorable and its definitely original! These are very well made, and authentic. Each shirt that she makes is one of a kind- no two are alike.
She can make these on a Shirt Sleeve Tshirt, Baseball Style and Sweatshirts.

Auntie Pam's is located in Gunter, Texas

Jamie Smith's Wood Signs

I found this awesome man on Craigslist, 2 1/2 years ago and he has been making me signs ever since that wonderful day! I have had him make me at least 10 signs, but I am only posting the sports ones.

He uses really nice, thick wood that he varnishes, stains, paints, and then tops with a polyurenthane that will keep it from weathering.
His signs are pretty reasonable in price and they are worth the money.

I started a tradition of having signs made from each of our schools with the dates listed. Josh has them hanging on our shed in the backyard. The pictures aren't very good- I will try to take better ones and replace these later.

The Hill's, Coyote Fans Forever
This one was a gift to my Grandpa a few years ago. He loved it.

Life Begins when the Season Starts
This sign is hanging on my wall going up my staircase and the phrase fits our family perfectly. This sign was made by Jamie, but it was given to my as a Christmas present from my Aunt Terri

Favorite Books

These are a few of my favorite books!

Talk Football: A book for Women, written by a Woman.
This is a FANTASTIC Book written by Alice Nicholas. She is just a mom that wanted to learn a little about football as her boys went from Pop Warner, up to High School. I had the priveledge of speaking to Mrs.Nicholas last summer and she is just the sweetest lady and it was neat to hear about her story. I love this book, its very easy to follow and the pictures in it are unbelievable.
If you would like to learn just the very basics, and a little more, then this is the book for you. It would also make a great Team Mom gift, or a great gift for a NEW Coaches Wife.

The Coaches Wife Book and Study Guide
Written by Carolyn Allen, wife of Randy Allen, head coach at Highland Park

You may have read her first book, The Coaches Wife, which has a different cover. This is basically the same book, but an updated version. I have read both and I like this version much better, as I can relate to it much better.
There is a Bible Study Guide that goes along with this book as well and it is fabulous! There are a lot of Bible Studies for Coaches, but this is the only one that I have found that is strickly for Coaches Wives.

Get Your Own Damn Beer, I'm Watching the Game!
Written by Holly Robinson Peete, an NFL Players wife.
It is funny, educational and a great book to read if you are in the mood for some great football talk for Women.

The Girlfriends Guide to Football
Think Football For Dummies. Written by a Teena Dickerson
Cute book, easy to follow, a LOT of information, so in my opinion, you need to know the basics of football, before you attempt to read this one!

The Taffy Box

I found a cute necklace on Etsy and I asked the seller if she could customize it to say Coach's Wife and sure enough, she was able! The taffy box also sends your necklace in a super cute mesh bag and she adds a piece of laffy taffy in with it!
I think it took about 2 weeks to get my necklace in!
