Can I get a “WAR EAGLE”?!?

Well hello and consider yourself greeted with the most enthusiastic “WAR EAGLE!!!” you’ve ever heard!! My goodness what an exciting game and to say that we’re completely thrilled over here is an understatement! Rover was so excited he passed out on the floor in front of the tv during the game.

Santa’s Workshop {aka Honey Bee Tees} has been restocked with Christmas Ride tees in assorted sizes and colors… as well as Off to the Bay & O Christmas Tree in long sleeves. You guys are really good at cleaning up house… more long sleeved Bird Dogs have been ordered and I’ll keep you posted when restocked.

    Congrats! I am a BIG Crimson Tide fan but can be happy for your team. They have had an amazing season and I think Oregon better be ready. We would love to keep the National Championship in the SEC!!!

    Hey Darby! Just found your site last week. I have read all your post from the beginning. You have beautiful children. Just wanted to say I’m from Arkansas and we were all rooting for Auburn today. I actually heard people at the game calling the Hogs. Aurburn beating S.C. means we go to the Sugar bowl. GO HOGS!!!!!!

    WAAAARRRRRR EAGLE! I started out an Auburn fan..don’t know how I arrived at that, but I did. Then I became an FSU fan, and finally, married into a family of huge Auburn fans, so I “came back home” so to speak! What an AWESOME game! Pulling for the ‘Noles right now…they’re not doing so well in the ACC game!

    As a still-proud Gamecock fan, I will say congrats to you and your team! 🙂 PS: ordered the “happy camper” shirt a few days ago, so excited for it to get here! 🙂 I think I may have gotten the last small.

    Could not be more excited for my Auburn Tigers and for the state of Alabama!!! We keep producing SEC winners! Now we got to beat Oregon at the National Championship game! That Auburn team has captured the nation with their zeal, love and oneness. Go Auburn and thanks for making us so proud!

    This here Tennesse Vol fan became a HUGE Auburn fan this season! That football team is very talented and so much fun to watch. We even shouted a few “War Eagle”‘s during the game last night. I do commend Steve Spurrier and South Carolina for their first ever SEC championship game. But in the end it was the Auburn Tigers!!! We are looking forward to watching the National Championship game against Oregon. That Cam Newton is a class act and we wish him all the best! Congratulations Auburn! BTW we are sporting our “Christmas Ride” tees for our Christmas card pic this year. Super cute! I also decided to do a lot of my Christmas shopping from your adverisers here on FTOW. I have been home-bound because of a surgery so internet shopping was the way to go this year. Loved shopping with your supporters! They have wonderful gift ideas! Have a great weekend!

    Saw the last few minutes of the game..looks like they were having some fun! SEC champs…wtg!

    Us Michigan fans are lamenting that the regents are gonna keep Rich Rod for now. We’re severely depressed. We used to have a good team…last few years…not so much.

    Good for your team…it’s fun to ride out the winning streaks!

    Funny little story to share…My husband and I live in DC and he went to Penn State so that is the only college team we really follow. While decorating the tree yesterday he explaining there was some big conference final (I think that’s what is was called) game on. I asked who it was and he say Auburn and the other team. I said, “Oh you mean the Auburn Tigers??” and he looked at me in udder disbelief and asked how I knew them. I said, “Oh just one of the blogs I follow, you know the mom with three little kids, she went there.”

    It was pretty funny!

    Love your tees! My 18 month old has the pink owl tee and wore it under her halloween costume. Well since it was hot here in Atlanta on Halloween, she was only half a giraffe so her Honey Bee Tee was showing during our neighborhood party and parade. Well you would have thought that every woman in our neighborhood knows you personally because everyone was coming up to us asking if she was wearing one of Darby’s tees. We talk about you like we know you. ha! Is there any way to get O Christmas Tree put on a long sleeve RED kids tee? The Jeep Wagoneer is my dream car. Really, it is.
