All kinds of Nashville party shenanigans were had this past weekend for Teddy and me.
We had a wild Friday evening sorting through my bins of winter threads.
Speaking of wardrobe, my little niece and nephew love going naked as they proved with a pic on Saturday am.
Saturday game day party ingredients were prepped for our Iowa Hawkeyes 11am (ugh…too early!) kick-off. I worked my ass off setting liquor bottles on the kitchen counter. Exhausting.
As soon as the first play was underway, Ted assumed his fave football position on his Gma’s lap.
Of course, his beauty sleep was interrupted by our moonshine shot tradition that we guzzle after every touchdown.
Our halftime show featured a celebration of my dad’s birthday complete with a whopper pie (made by yours truly) and gifts.
The sign I gifted my dad reads:
“Dad, no matter where I go in life, who I get married to, how much time I spend with guys, how much I love my boyfriend, you’ll always be my number one man.” And the last line should have included – don’t tell Mr. Bear.
Of course, Teddy had something to say about this revelation and gave my dad a stern talking to on the porch.
After all was settled, TB sauntered into his Juicy Couture Pussy Palace to ignore all of the birthday and football celebrations taking place.
We carried on to our 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th moonshine shots…
Which of course led to Dance Party USA – then turned into a victory celebration as our Hawks won the game.
I drug Ted out of his Pussy Palace to see if he felt like a whirl and twirl.
After almost losing an eye to a claw, my dad and I ran to the liquor store in order to prep for the Tennessee Titans game on Sunday (you like how we have our priorities straight, don’t you?).
Sunday greeted us with a gorgeous day for football – sunny, cloudless and 60 degrees.
As the players were suiting up in their uniforms, I was putting the final touches in my Sunday attire.
After our photo shoot, I headed to tend bar in the bathroom.
And as the Titans continued to suck it up the entire afternoon, my dad and I turned into comedians while we were people watching. Our most clever observation was spying the oldest jersey in our section, being that Pac Man Jones hasn’t been with the Titans since 2006.
The Titans may have lost to the worst team in our division BUT my dad and I gained hats. Oh so many free hats we collected as other fans ran out of the stadium with their heads hung in shame.
And we refused to leave until the end of the game – which was perfect as the Titans scored another touch down and we were able to finish the last little bit of tequila we had with us.
The highlight of game day was the halftime event, which honored local veterans and active duty members of the military. Lee Greenwood sang “God Bless the USA,” the crowd witnessed a re-enlistment ceremony for 50 members of the Army stationed at Fort Campbell and the color guards from the five branches of the military were on the field.
