Tailgate Tuesday...



My girl, Erin, over at Love, Fun & Football has this link-up & you best believe that this Green Bay Packer loving girl is gonna partake.  Anything to talk some football!  Awhoo hoo!

I don't remember when my love for the green & gold started or how it started because my parents were not that much into watching football.  My uncle, Kevin, was so I'm sure that I got my love of the game from him & a little guy you may know as Brett Favre.  I loved Brett Favre.  I wanted to marry him & until that day came, I just collected everything with his face on it.  I have magazines & birthday cards & books - it's insane my collection of Favre/Packer stuff.  But then one night in Dallas, I was introduced to a guy named Aaron Rodgers.

I was in love.  With the mixture of Brett's tactics & Aaron's charm & talent, Brett was replaced in my heart.  I know that he didn't have fun in Minnesota & that's called karma.  Anywho, back to my love of the game.  The first time I saw Lambeau Field in-person was for the Return to Titletown after their Super Bowl win in 1996, I cried.  No jokes, I cried.  It was still good ol' Lambeau, no commercializing of the stadium or field so the way it was intended.  I never got that feeling around when I went back after the commercializing.  Don't get me wrong, I love Lambeau but for me it doesn't have the feeling it had before.

I have not had the opportunity to attend many games - five only, Return to Titletown & the Brett Favre Induction Ceremony - but I do love sitting there in my green & gold cheering my boys on.

GO PACK GO!!!!

  1. I love this! Football (and the players!) can just take over your heart! We're Colts, Packers, and Notre Dame fans, and I feel the same way about them. And I've shed a tear or two over games and players (Peyton!!! Dang that Alabama!) That's so awesome you've gotten to watch some games at Lambeau. I can't only imagine what the atmosphere is like there on game day!

    Stopping by from Erin's! You should link up with us for Tuesday Talk this week (and every week!) - several hosts are doing the football theme with Erin. We'd love to have you! -Jess, Sweet Little Ones

    1. Oh my gosh, they can take over, it's just amazing. I actually have a Colts sticker on my car (I fell in love with the team with Jim Harbaugh was QB & then Peyton, oh how I love him - ha!) & my boss is a Notre Dame fan so I cheer for them as well. :)

      I love me a good link-up so I may have to do the Tuesday Talk as well. Oh yea!

      Thanks for stopping by, Jess! :)

  2. Even though I am a diehard Browns fan, I have always like Brett Favre and Packers. Fun fact - I was a Packer cheerleader when I was younger in the youth football organization here :)

    1. Very, very true. Lambeau tends to be on any football lovers list as a stadium to visit. The Hall of Fame there is pretty dang cool as well. :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over toApril to do so.  :) My five this week are things I am most excited about in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.  In case you didn't see the preview of it, here is one & this is one that I did not see until today:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1.  Seeing more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.  Now, if you are new to these parts, I have been "forced" to be a fan of Johnny Depp as my mom is in love with him & told me that he's my dad.  Ha!  So, whenever I see him I always say to myself "hi, Dad!"  Ha!  Plus, it helps that he's an amazing actor.  I am so excited to see how he plays this character, I know that it will be fantastic!

  2.  Jacob Kowalski.  Oh my gosh, do I love this character!  Dan Fogler plays him so wonderfully.  He is just so likable &a…
