Football Season

So, my life is already consumed by football season--and I LOVE IT!. I've shopped for my outfits, figured out which games we are attending, bought plane tickets, bought football tickets, and even planned my first Gator Game Viewing Party (we usually go to most of the games).

We are hosting our DC friends for the first gator game against Charleston Southern. The menu is planned, Evite sent and signature cocktails are going to be mixed! I am sad that some of our friends will be out of town for Labor Day weekend festivities, but for all who come we will have a grand time! Josh's signature Asian wings with my wasabi-ginger ranch dip, cheese straws, homemade chicken sausage, shrimp and grits bar (in honor of our opponent), veggie and cheese platters, pulled pork sliders, orange cake (in honor of the gators), and football shaped brownies. We may adjust the menu slightly, but this is the idea. There will be lots of cooking, cleaning and decorating in my future, and I just can't wait!

On September 12th we play Troy at noon. I have my Junior League of Washington DC transfer orientation that morning, so we are going to join the DC Gator Club to watch the game at Bailey's. I am excited to get my DC Gator Club T-shirt for this year!

We are flying home for the Tennessee Game, and I am looking forward to tailgating with friends and stopping by the sorority house. Nothing beats a Gator Game in the Swamp!

For the Kentucky Game we are driving with my sorority sister Maggie to Lexington, KY-it will be a fun road trip, followed by a much needed bi-weekend.

The Big Easy is our next calling for the LSU game in Baton Rouge. We will be spending Friday in New Orleans with Lacey and Mike, and plan for all of us to go to a nice dinner with Reema and Alex. We have lots of tailgates to go to in Death Valley, crawfish boils, creole and jambalaya-oh my!

Arkansas will be watched with friends in DC, and we are still working out our trip details for the Mississippi State game, as Josh will be returning from a business trip abroad that Thursday or Friday.

Josh will be using some of his plentiful vacation time the week of Florida vs Georgia. He is planning to head down to Jacksonville on Wednesday. I will meet him there on Friday night. Rumor has it Gwen and Josh are planning to rent an RV--I hope they can roll in early and get a good spot in RV city. Gwen has already planned and designed our T-shirt for this year-what fun we will all have!

The Vandy game we are going to watch with friends in DC, and the South Caroline game we are going to watch bits-and pieces of with friends, but mostly dance and have a good time at Danny and Allison's Wedding!

We will be watching both the Florida International and Florida State game from DC, unless we decide to go home for Thanksgiving. That is still TBD. Well my blog will probably be centered around football from now until mid-January...Happy Reading and GOOOOO GATORS!

So...the beginning part of this post once agian made me hungry! I need to tailgate with you and Josh sometime (especially after all those stories I heard at the wedding!).

I haven't picked out all my outfits yet! I bought an awesome orange ruffled dress and a blue and white polka dot one....still shopping for more.

I don't know if our FB schedules are gonna match up! Sad times.
