Show Us YOUR team! {and AMAZING Blog Friends}



I knew I had to participate in "Show Us YOUR Team" when my girly Kristin blogged about her Minnesota Goph's! and when she mentioned she knows OSU will beat on them next time they face eachother.

College football season is right around the corner and I'm counting down the days, so today I'm going to show you MY team {even though you prob already know this.}

My team is the Ohio State Buckeyes!!!!!!


{just look at that stadium..perfection}


I was born and raised a Buckeye here in Columbus, Ohio.

The whole city pretty much revolves around Ohio State football and I wouldn't have it any other way. There is so much team spirit here that it's contagious....

You see, weddings in Columbus are often PLANNED AROUND the Ohio State football schedule and it's considered a sin to have a wedding on the big Ohio State vs Michigan {our rival} gameday, which is always the last game of the year. You just don't do it. Each and every of my Saturdays are spent down on campus tailgaiting from 9am - however late I can make it out before hitting the sack.

Some say Christmas is their favorite time of year, I say football season is my favorite time of year. I absolutely love getting decked out in SCARLET AND GREY {our team colors} and heading down to the stadium. Ohio State has received a lot of negative press this year, but the love I have for my Buckeyes will never die. :)

I've been extremely lucky for the past couple years because my work can provide me tickets in to one of the executive suites, which have an AMAZING view of the field {see pics above & 1 below}, free food, & drinks.




{in the suite}


But we aren't above partying in the parking lots too....




even Rocky is a Buckeye....



and this looks like nothing but fun...doesn't it?!




I'm a pro cornhole player, if you are wondering.


Even the blistering cold temperatures in the winter
can't keep us from having a good time....





Last but not least...
just because I want to make it perfectly clear how much FUN tailgaiting at OSU is...
this is my best friend Lindsay (on the far right) who is a MICHIGAN fan and she is decked out in OSU gear because she loves OSU tailgaiting so much.



{sorry Linds - had to}


SO...Where are all my college football fanatics that want to come make a visit when your team plays OSU?!?

I promise to show you a good time!!!!


Now it's your turn to share with me who YOUR team is :-)

Alright, friends. Look what I got in the mail last week.



That's a surprise package from one of my very best friends Jess!
{who I met via this little blog}

you know, this gorg southern belle...


She used to blog on over at Polka Dots, Pearls, and Pink OH MY! but had a blog makeover and her new blog is The Kentucky Priss - which I must say, fits her a lot better. ;)

Anyways, she is an absolute doll and one of the nicest girls I've ever met. She is actually visiting me this OCTOBER for a weekend and I'm going to show her how we party during Ohio State football season! I. CANNOT. WAIT. {She is a Kentucky fan, but WILL be wearing OSU colors that day ;}

So, she sends me packages like whoa for no particular reason {how sweet?!}
 and I lurve them.


Here's what's inside.
Girl KNOWS my 2 favorite things this summer...




a black {with pink underneath} strapless lace dress.
NEVER WORN!

So cute.


and...





this adorable red romper
that is so so comfy.

Can you say Ohio State Red?!


Isn't she the best friend ever?

You should go to her new blog and tell her how awesome she is.
Thank you Jess - loveeeess you & can't wait for your visit.


xo.

  2. All your pictures are so much fun!! I looooove football season! Although football season in my hometown is all about the Redskins, and I prefer college football. Oh well! I've been a die-hard Tennessee fan for years :) But hey, if I'm ever in your town, I'd gladly wear OSU colors and participate in the fun!!

    And how sweet is the little care package??? The dress and romper are adorable! She's such a sweetheart!

  9. YAYYYY for the Buckeyes!!! Ya know, I am a bandwagon Buckeye fan. Y'all are fucking crazy with tailgating. It's insane. But I love it. Only on the cool fall days. When it becomes so cold my urine is slush, I no longer tailgate.

    Maybe I will run into you at a game this year!!

    OH ..... IO :)

    I didn't stand a chance not being a Buckeye's fan. My dad's family is from Ohio and I'm so jealous that he got to grow up in Buckeye country. I rep my SCARLET AND GREY on gamedays in NC!

    Just recently started following your blog and I love it.

    PS, it's nice to see a Michigan fan in the OSU colors...

  20. I am soooo excited for football season!! Wish I had a big team to root for. My future children will be choosing colleges based on which football team I would like to root for. OSU perhaps?
    I have that black dress - so cute! I have never worn it. Need to before it's too late in the summer.
    Your convos with Jess are hilarious... Love love love it.

  24. I absolutely loved this post and would so love to do one of my own. I'm a die hard Duke Blue Devils fan although our football team is certainly nothing to brag about. I had to laugh at your comment about weddings being planned around the schedule b/c I vividly remember my Mom being so upset with me for checking the score of the SEC championship game during my cousin's wedding reception a couple yrs back!;)

  25. I really love your blog and your pins, but I am a HUGE FLORIDA GATORS fan!

    I can look past it though, and I totally relate on how much I love college football and how excited I am for the season to start!! There is nothing like it! I'll have to do a Gators post soon, you've inspired me!

I used to get season tickets and that sadly ends this year. boo :( I still love watching at home and I am ignoring the bad press and am still believing we will have a good year. Also, just found your blog today and I am glad to find another blogger from Ohio.
