I’ve been looking forward to fall all summer long. Not so I could break out my riding boots (though I do love them) or cozy scarves (love those too). I wasn’t really excited about ordering my first pumpkin spice latte (I’m a black coffee and chai tea kinda gal anyways), and carving pumpkins, and corn mazes aren’t really my jam (though I do love a deep red leaf color). I’ve been looking forward to fall because, football (let’s be honest, a lot of us started counting down the days to late August/early September after the bowl games’ pomp and circumstance in January).
My dad is from Wisconsin, and I went to college and law school in Wisconsin, so my loyalties definitely lie with the teams in America’s Dairyland (born and raised, y’all). In law school, my roommate and I lived right behind the stadium, so many game day Saturday kicked off with a tailgate party at our house.
AJ, on the other hand, hails from Michigan, so it could easily be said there’s a bit of a rivalry in our household.
Although we’re cheering for different teams when weekends roll around, you’ll be able to find us parked on the couch, screaming at the TV, together (true love, no?). I definitely enjoy the game day experience; nothing can beat the roar of the crowd, the smell of charcoal in the air as brats sizzle on the grill, or a jubilant tailgate party (and you can bet you’ll see us at a fair share of tailgate parties near the stadium during football season). But a tailgate party at home can be just as festive with a great spread.
