“It’s gonna mean everything to hear my name called that day.”

PLAN ON IT
IN CASE YOU NEED A REASON TO CELEBRATE
TODAY is Hug an Australian Day, SUNDAY is World Wish Day and MONDAY is Adopt a Shelter Pet Day.
ALL OF THE LIGHTS
Did you know that the release of a paper lantern into the air is typically seen as a symbol of good luck and prosperity? As a celebration of this tradition, The Lights Fest will be held in Munford, Alabama on May 12. This event is held on the Talladega raceway and will include not only the release of lanterns but also live music and dancing. Purchase tickets now, you don’t want to miss this!
TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED
Finals are stressful. College is stressful. Want to know what’s not stressful? These nine “heavenly” places right here in Alabama! From the Huntsville Botanical Gardens to the Wilderness Park in Prattville, many of these locations are hidden gems of Alabama. Be rid of stress, and be one with nature in any of these beautiful (and photogenic) locations. Live your best life, not your stressed life!
Books are everywhere, we have four libraries full of them. PBS has invited book lovers everywhere to vote for their favorite book from a list of 100 incredible books. This list includes books from past and present and includes one of Alabama’s finest authors, Harper Lee, with “How to Kill a Mockingbird.” The winner will be revealed on October 23. Check out the list to see all the must-read novels and cast your vote!
What better way to start finals week then a sweet treat? This mug sugar cookie has all the ingredients of those sweet frosted sugar cookies, without any of the fuss. All the same flavor in just a few minutes. Can I get an amen?! Combine sugar, butter, salt, egg yolks, flour, and sprinkles (the most crucial ingredient) in a mug and you’ll be coming back for seconds in no time. Get to baking!
While there are no home games this week, it is time to turn our attention to championship season. The men’s golf team will begin their championship weekend on Thursday and will conclude on Sunday. Thank you to all the fans this year for your support and attendance at the games. Let’s bring that intensity next year as well!
