Tailgate Time


Yes, ladies. It is officially almost that time of year. Some of you may dread football season {I personally love it}. The husband usually starts a countdown sometime in July as to when the first NC State football game is. However, I recall one year when it occurred as early as the Spring Game, sometime in April. So...here we are, with our first football game just 9 days away!

For the first time in many years, our game on Labor Day Weekend will actually be an away game. The Wolfpack will be playing Tennessee in the Chic-fil-A bowl game Friday night! This means we get to spend the weekend at the beach for Labor Day, a rare feat for us football fans.  Since we aren't really tailgating, we will be enjoying AC, having finger foods and tailgate-esque tasty bites. We are planning our menu now...so tell me, what are your favorite tailgate foods/recipes? This time around, we have a handy oven and fridge and microwave to make things very simple.

Go Wolfpack! xo.

I can't wait for tailgate season. My husband and I just moved into a new neighborhood right near the NC State stadium so we might go to some tailgates this year- particularly when they play Wake since we went there for law school. Maybe we will have to meet up if you're there! My husband went to Maryland and is a terps fan, so we are trying to go to Maryland's homecoming in College Park where they are actually playing NC State this year!

I love boiled peanuts and cheap beer. Seriously, nothing says college football like cheap beer!

I'm so excited for football season! Unfortunately we will miss the first two weeks of it while we are in Europe...but I think that's a good excuse :)

My husband, a total hot wing lover, loves my buffalo chicken dip! Served with Tostitos Scoops, it's the perfect gameday dip!
