So...Tailgates Are About Food or Football?

Good morning and welcome to all my new followers! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I spent mine relaxing with family. I was lucky enough to have a super fun sleepover, with matching owl pajamas, and my niece on Saturday. And on Sunday, I went to a tailgate party to celebrate the engagement of one of my cousins. I'm not a football fan so I didn't know what to expect, but there was tons of yummy comfort food like mac'n cheese, chicken wings, and chocolate fondue for all sorts of sweets. Oh, and I should mention it was held here in a big opened up banquet room with a huge projection screen showing the Bills game. I swear the players looked as big as I imagine they are in real life! And the little thank you gifts were beer koozies in Bills colors with the couple's names and the date of upcoming wedding printed on them; so fun! All in all it was a very fun experience. I came home with a full tummy, tight jeans, and a re-affirmed love of a good beer.

p.s.- stay tuned for today's Monday Morning Movie. It's gonna be more of an afternoon matinee.


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun! I am dying to go tailgating... just for the experience! :)

  2. We tailgate each home game here in KC. When you drive up the hill to the parking lots you are treated to a WOW view of literally thousands of tailgaiters. The smell makes you instantly hungry hungry! You wouldn't believe the gadgets people have. One guy had a little gas powered blender! LOL Mixed drinks were delicious.

    So glad you had a good time and thanks for the nice post!

  3. Wow, that sounds nuts! I imagine those beverage cooler motor scooters I saw on T.V. (Ellen is awesome) would be a neat gadget to have especially if those parking lots are huge enough to hold thousands!

    And thanks, ladies, for the kind words and comments. I love knowing that I'm not just talking to myself - lol :)
