28 days. That is how long we have before the greatest sport on the planet begins again. I have loved the Florida Gators since the day I was born. I can remember the excitement I would have on Saturdays to sit and watch games with my dad. I remember being heart broken when we would lose a big game, and I remember the pure excitement I felt when we won the National Championship in 1996 (and Danny Wuerffel became my first love). My love and loyalty to the Gators grew when I attended college there. I never missed a home game, and I never left a game early. It was one of the greatest times in history to attend UF, as we won 2 basketball and 1 football National Championship during my time there (and another in football the next year). When I moved to Atlanta after college, I imagined decorating my entire apartment in orange and blue(which sounds incredibly awesome and disgusting at the same time). Needless to say, the orange and blue decor did not happen. Now that I have a house of my own, I have really started to consider what a little orange and blue would look like in the house….it would be done in a tasteful way of course. No Tim Tebow posters or murals of the stadium on the wall. I would also have to let my husband have an Alabama room, which almost makes me want to entirely drop the idea of an orange and blue room just so I don’t have to stare at framed pictures of Bear Bryant all day as if he were an immediate family member. All joking aside, I would love a feminine, tasteful orange and blue room in my next house. Here are some pretty, fun examples of great Gator rooms!

And let’s be honest…orange and blue is way cuter than this!
