First Game of the Season

4 Sep

one of my favorite images. ever.

I’ve been looking forward to today since the end of basketball season. I’m gonna say it, so brace yourself. Football season is the most wonderful time of the year. I love what it brings. Rivalry after a long break, cooler weather, changing leaves, something to look forward to every week. I could really go on, but I’ll spare you. Just know that I love me some football. Specifically college football. More specifically, Kansas State University football.

I’m a proud alumnus, even in our team’s low points. We’ve had our fair share and after tonight’s game I’m pretty sure I can say that we’ll have a few more, but I’m a loyal fan and I’ll stand by their side. For better or for worse. You know, like marriage. I love my Cats!

Since we had Lakyn we gave up our luxury of season tickets to the football games. We felt it was the best thing for us to do. But, that’s not to say she’s never been to a football game. In fact, she’s been to a few!

Tonight’s first game of the season brought with it the usual excitement of a new season, the usual pride of watching our team take the field, and the usual quality time spent with fellow Wildcats. While our Game Days don’t consist of tailgating, sitting in the stadium through pregame warmups, or singing the Fight Song with 50,000 plus, I still love them with all my heart. Here’s what Game Days look like now.

We get decked out in some purple, y’all!

purple from head to toe

We (and I really mean Brandon) did some grilling in between the rain showers.



We do a little playing.

I don’t know how my husband consistently whips up amazing burgers, but I’m so SO thankful!

We ate, watched the game, and even had some surprise visitors!

Our Wildcats ended up with the all-important ‘W’ and we concluded our lovely family day with some bedtime stories.

story time means cuddle time

It was a wonderful Game Day. Good night all.

    Ugh! It was a TERRIBLE game, but at least we ended up winning :) You are all so cute, love all the purple! Miss you guys at the games.
