A True Fan


If I had to line up all the folks who like to hang with my girls…well, it would be a long line.

And I don’t even feel bad about bragging about that.

The first in line after Coach and I? Their Grandparents.

They are fortunate enough to have THREE Grandma’s and TWO Grandpa’s.

How lucky…I know.

There is an upside to divorce.


This past weekend, we were near my MIL and FIL’s hometown. They don’t get to see LoLo play as much high school softball as they do travel ball in the summer.

So Coach’s Mom showed up on Friday with her nails ‘did.’


Here is a close up.


I know. She is flippin’ awesome.



Have you ever colored your hair or nails to match a beloved team?


  1. I have not! She is awesome for doing that.

    I did dye my hair hot pink one time. Is there a team whose color is hot pink? If so, I did it for them. :)

  2. LOVE your MIL's nails! Here in Big Orange Country, many people go out all for the football team, but I've never done anything like that before!

  3. OMIGOSH! Nails in team colors, wowie!

  4. I'm going to have to redefine my understanding of the grandmother's role in life now. So there's more to life than baking cookies?

  5. She is awesome! I did dye my hair orange once. Go Vols!! Turns out temporary dye tends to 'stick' to hair that has been bleached so I was a lovely shade of salmon for a couple of weeks:)

  6. These are fab!

    In high school we always did alternating red and black nails for our home town.

    It was small. Sports were the "thing"

  7. Umm no, I have not. That is one Uber cool Granny!

  8. She is awesome! I hope I'm a cool grandma too. Oh, wait...I am! But, since I don't do my nails, I will have to think of something else. I've got plenty of time though since my guys are only two.

  9. She is so cool!! ;) I love it!

  10. I can't tell you how exciting it was when teal nail polish first came out. Remember, back in the dark ages, they only used to have pinks and reds!

    Too fun.

  11. There should be a trophy to go with that and I'm not kidding! And I want her to adopt me as her grandchild! And I'm not kidding! And I'm probably almost her age! And I'm not kidding! I love her!

  12. She is definitely awesome! Now that's the way to cheer on the granddaughters! Will she do her hair next time? :-)

  13. That is one wonderful Grandma! As you said, she's a true fan!!

  14. Wow----what a Grandmother!!! I've never seen anyone do that with their nails... That is special!!!!

    Glad she was able to see Lo play.... Did Lo have another 'grand slam'????

    Have a great week.

  15. Now that's a loyal fan! sweet!

  16. I have never colored anything in honor of a team but it's too bad the Homestead Grays are no longer in existence.

  17. Hobeejeez that's hilarious!

    I wanna see the rest of gramma :-D

  18. That is the most wonderful manicure I have EVER seen. She is a wonderful grandma (or should we say, fanma?) And she's clearly hip, too.

    You are so sweet, but no, my feet do NOT look or smell like roses. =)

  19. She is awesome! No, I'm sad to say, I have not. I'm not a very sporty girl. However, if my gilrs ever become sporty...I'm all over it! ;)

  20. awwww how so very loving and supportive of her, bless her lil green nailed heart.

    that is so sweet, suz....

    happy easter...


  21. THAT is one cool Grandma!!

    and yes..a very long time ago, when I was teaching in texas, i had a tail that was dyed hot principal jokingly said that the tail would be okay only if it was purple (our school color) football game, i sat right in front of and my purple tail. His sigh was heard 5 rows in front of us. i live for moments like that!!

  22. What a fun Grandma!!!
    I was very impressed about your baby #2 being willing to leave her techno gadgets at home to go camping. Way to go!!!
    And I also scrolled down to read about #1's Grand Slam!!! Wow! Kudos to her.
    Have a great Easter weekend.

  23. I'm impressed! Can she be my mother-in-law, too! Please, please...purtee please!

  24. No, I've never colored my nails or hair to match a team. I did purchase a purple and gray hairpiece for Phx Suns games though.hehe. Can't find it now.

    Your MIL's nails are B-Ute-E-ful!! And sweet to have Lolo's# too. When my Jessica finally has kids I'm gonna try to be that kind of Grandma too! Go team!
