Orange Tears

Gooooood morning! It’s a dreary, rainy day here in Knoxvegas, and I’m currently either battling a cold or allergies. Either way, hope it passes soon!

I wanted to recap the mostly amazing weekend (how has another weekend come and gone?!). On Friday, I received a notification that I had won a free Vols tank top from Neighborhood Barre! I was stoked! I could get used to winning. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Saturday was gameday! We all loaded up and headed downtown around 2:00 to tailgate until kickoff at 7:00. I enjoyed this scrumptious snack plate and an unpictured plate of delicious home smoked BBQ, baked beans, slaw, and potato salad. Mmmm mmm mmWe got to see several friends, and I was SO happy to have my twnkie with us! I’m converting her to being a football lover slowly but surely. ๐Ÿ™‚Someday it would be fun to make a collage of all of D’s and my gameday photos, especially since we met at a Vols tailgate. :))

That’s my father-in-law being a goob and photobombing us. hahahaha

Once fueled up, and sweaty from head to toe, we hiked to the stadium to witness 60 minutes of a pure ass whooping. Y’all, it was PAINFUL. The Vols turned the ball over 6 times…SIX TIMES. There was no coming back. I also know this is what so many people say, but the refs were AWFUL. Straight up trash just like the FL players (sorry if any of y’all out there are FL fans). FL played dirty, the refs apparently wore blindfolds, and the Vols just could not hold onto the ball if their lives depended on it. We also missed countless blocks, didn’t have the speed needed on our defense (although our defense did play pretty well otherwise), and our offense couldn’t protect our QB.

Didn’t really abide by the very first rule: “The team that makes the fewest mistakes will win”…Basically, this season is going to be tougher than last year I think. Our new head coach is awesome, we have the talent, and we are recruiting, but it’s clear we are a long way away from being an SEC competitive team. I’ll always bleed and cry orange though.

Alllllrighty, Sunday kor and I decided to enjoy some liquid gold at K-Brew together whilst doing some behind-the-scenes blogging updates, nommed on some leftover pizza at my house and then loaded up with Axl Rose to enjoy the fall festival at Cruze Farm! The house was sooooo beautiful covered with pumpkins everywhere, mums on mums on mums, and the pumpkin ice cream was perfection. We snapped some wonderful photos that I plan to have printed, lip locked with some ice cream, and enjoyed being a part of such a wonderful local event. Axl was also so well-behaved (as always!). Is he just not the cutest pup you have ever seen?!?!?! I know I’m biased….kind of. ๐Ÿ™‚

All in all it was a fab weekend, but I most certainly am hoping to see some Orange and White miracles this fall!

Please tell me if you did anything fall related last weekend!

  1. I just love your new fonts! Very pretty. I am beyond grateful for our weekend spent together, but I sure wish the Vols had won!! Maybe if I had graced the stadium with my presence it would’ve helped. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I kid! But seriously, they need to get their act together asap. Thanks for the pitsa, the memories, and the help with my blog! I love you, Boo!

  2. Yay so excited to see this recap here ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you feel better soon! I always get allergies/ a cold whenever the weather changes too! So far so good, but Iโ€™m just waiting for it to hit. That Vols tank is soo cute! Love it. Ahhhh I am loving those photos of you and Kori! Adorable. Girl, you are so stinkinโ€™ cute! I am lovinโ€™ all these photos. So fun that you and D met at a tailgate too!

    Oh my gosh, wait I have to say it again- these pictures are too amazing! I am getting all the fall feels! Axl โค What fun times! What a fun weekend ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. It’s so weird cause I don’t really feel sick (ya know that feeling in your throat when you are sick?), but I’m just soooo stuffy and my ears have little pops. I took a hot bath with lavender Epson salt after work yesterday, and I think that helped. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you! I was so excited to receive such a cute tank for free! I love the style, and I always love adding more gameday gear to my wardrobe!

      Ha aww you are the sweetest! I’m sure some people are like “oh look at those millennials taking pics”, but I just love love love having photos to treasure for years to come! It helps me to see what all I/we did and to enjoy the past times. :)) To this day I’m still not sure what made me stand out to D at that tailgate since I was rocking flared jeans and a football jersey but I like to think the excitement of the game and a littleeee alcohol for him helped. ๐Ÿ˜‰ bahaha

      Isn’t he?! I just love toting my sweet pup around to allow him to get out and have fun! He had so much fun finding bits of waffle cone on the ground and trying to lick up any ice cream drippings. ha

      Hope you are off to a great start this week and that school is going well!

      1. Ohhh I totally know what you mean! That tickle in the back of the throat is like a big warning sign- get out the echinacea, vitamin C, extra water, etc. and more vitamin C! But wait— lavender epson salt?! Genius!! I am adding this to the list. I don’t know why I haven’t tried that- lavender is a cure all!

        I totally agree! I love having the memories even if I can feel the judgement gettin’ them- I kinda hate that there is a weird insecurity/sigma around taking photos in public now-a-days.. like no one gave it a second thought years ago. Ohhhh welllll! I just went on a tangent- but yours are spectacular. Get allll the darn pics ya want!

        Pshhhh GIRL- you are stunnin’ .. you could have been in a paper bag and he woulda noticed ya! Plus flare jeans were alll the rage back in the day ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Oh my gosh, I cannot get over Axl, seriously toooo doggone cute. (pun intended of course).

        Thanks, girl! I’m lovin’ it. โค Hope you are having a great week too!

  3. Aww colds/allergies are the worst. Hope you’re feeling better soon! โ™ก

    The photo of your father-in-law photo bombing you is too cute! I love the playsuit you’re wearing in it too!

    Axl is definitely a beauty! ๐Ÿ˜‰
