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. :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
