Buddies and Bullies
Russell and I were in charge of the tailgate food & decorations for the MSU/Tennessee game this weekend. Both the chili recipe (see recipe below for you, Claire) and painted pumpkins with Bully & Go State! were a big hit. Several people were trying to steal them for their own Halloween decorations (yep, Mary, I'm referring to you)! If you're interested in having your own pumpkins (hmm... Mary, Amy, etc.) or something else painted for you, contact me through Address to Impress.
We started the weekend off by eating at Doe's on Friday night with Russell's Kappa Alpha 5th Quarter tailgating crew. On Saturday, we had a great time hanging out and tailgating with many others including... Truitt, Jason & Jade, Sara R., Stacey, Gracie & Bailey, and Sara Beth to name a few. Even though we didn't win the game, you would have never known it based on the crowd out partying in Starkville. I'm still so proud of myself for staying out until 2am both nights (something to be proud of, huh?). Needless to say, I paid for it at the gym yesterday morning and poor Russell is still trying to catch up on lost sleep. He had to turn in to bed before 10pm last night. I hope each of you had just as eventful weekends!
