For my sons 13th birthday we bought him a beautiful LSU watch. Louisiana State University is the college he wants to go to... only because he's a Tigers fan. :) He says if he can't play football for LSU, he's going to Stanford. Hahaha! Gotta love his reasoning. ;)

Anyways, I'm taking it to be engraved later today, but can't think of anything creative to engrave on it, so I'm hoping to get some ideas from all you creative chi-ppl.
:)

His name is Jordan and he's turning the big 13 on December 26. :)

Anyone have some ideas?

How about "For Jordan not afraid to dream for the future"? Or "Never be afraid to dream" I am not great with words so not sure?

Thank you Michelle & Lisa! Those are really good!
I dont know if it will all fit, but I could probably tweak it a bit if it doesn't. I really like those so they are going on my list. :)

These are the two I came up with. Hubby is no help! He says put Happy 13th Birthday & the date. That's to plain for me. Lol!

Hi Lisa - I like incorporating the 'time' element in the quote. That's really clever! How about....

It's all about timing!

Those are very good Tracy! The Benjamin Franklin quote is great! :)

You guys are such a big help!!!
Now I need to decide which one.
I like using the time element too. I need to decide quick. I only have until 3:00!!!

I want to thank you all for the great ideas. I love chi-ppl!

I took a poll with some family & friends and it was a tie between Tracy's Ben Franklin quote and the one I came up with.
I was torn between the two. I decided to go with mine.

Haha, if he were a little older i'd have said something about "It's Always Party Time."

Those LSU kids get downright crazy sometimes! But what college students don't?

Great gift ma, i'm sure it'll mean something to him for a long time.

Thank you Tracy! It really was hard to decide. There were so many beautiful quotes, so I left it up to family and friends. :)
I really hope he loves it. I think he will. He loves LSU, and he's very sentimental. :)

Ha!Ha! Amanda and you know this because.....??? Lol! You seem to speak from experience. Lol!!! ;)
Great quote, but thank God we're not at that point yet!!
I don't even want to think about it.

Aw! Thank you Michelle! That really does make me feel good about my choice. :)
I'm always second guessing myself.
I pick it up tomorrow. I can't wait to see how it turns out. :)

Haha, Beaumont is just a few minutes from the Louisiana border, a lot of kids from here went off to college out there. My OH went to a private school and it's a pretty reputable University so a quite a few of his class went there.

Ah, got it! :) :) :)
Well ya know....sometimes my inner party gal just wont stay in!!! jk haha.

No that's great of your son to have such good ambition, if he hangs on to it through high school i'm sure LSU would be proud to have him, or any school for that matter.

There is no value on a good education, I wish i'd have been more ambitious.
