A three day holiday weekend meant it was time to high tail it up to Iowa in order to see the twins, catch a little college football and finish up a birthday celebration.
Being that we arrived in the wee hours of Saturday morning, 8am tailgating time came a tad early for me. But I was able to rally with a glass of vodka mixed with everyone’s favorite…Capri Sun.
Excited to be in Iowa City for the first game of football season, I met up with my college bestie, Whitney Lover (who has a once-was-white-but-now-it’s-yellow-because-it’s-so-old Whitney Houston t-shirt from the “Greatest Love of All” days that she still sports) and couldn’t wait to get my hands on her little Lady E.
Then we headed to see the action at the tailgates with 70,000 of our closest buddies.
When it comes to Whitney Lover and myself, we do nothing but up the ante of classiness wherever we go.
Watching our Iowa Hawkeyes take in a big W was a fabulous way to kick-off the football season.
But want to know what was more fabulous?
Seeing my boyfriend, Herky the Hawk roaming the streets as I
stalked followed him to beg, plead ask for a photo together. He kindly obliged my request by driving as fast as he could down the street as I tried to throw myself in front of his golf cart.
Naturally a victorious football team AND running into my mascot boy toy called for celebratory bubbles.
The rest of the weekend required partying for my ma’s birthday, as the twins couldn’t be in Nashville on her actual big day. Being that this was a milestone, we brought out the big guns with friends and family joining in on one mother of a gift.
A Louis Vuitton will now be housed among my mama’s other accessories.
And mom had a wee bit of trouble taking her new bag back to Nashville, as Princess B wasn’t about it let it out of her sight.
Capping the holiday weekend out with one last cocktail took all of these ingredients…
Your weekend was like-always great and what a stunt photo with you in front of the jeep with your friend Herky, I’m sure he remembered you 🙂 ! Your mother was immediately in love with that awesome Louis Vuitton bag, and you can’t blame her 🙂 🙂 !
My mother is still on cloud 9 with her new Louis bag! But who can blame her? I’m not sure if Herky remembered me or not….but I’m going to throw myself in front of his Jeep next time I see him!
hahaha……………..than he’ll sure remember you for the next time after 🙂 !
CBXB, you mom loves that bag more than Princess B loves it, and Princess loves that bag! Great gift.
Thanks Mark – moms need to be spoiled as often as possible! 🙂
Awww you had us at the pink leopard wrapping paper! XOXO
I’ll be sure to wrap any future gifts for you in it. Just your style, I know!
oh crap..another year of corn field football…..
Ha! You KNOW it. I’ll be sure to go into great detail in future posts just for you. 🙂
That’s the way to say goodbye to summer!
And I said hello to fall by spending another week in Iowa. Happy to be back in Nashville again!
Yay! I love your family! What a gift for Mama!!!! Maybe sometimes you can borrow it??
Oh yes, I will be borrowing in the Louis. And I may have even dictated she will it to me upon her passing. Now if that’s not love, I don’t know what is! Hee hee.
Awesome weekend! Great pics! Your classy picnic spread kinda looks like the classy picnic spread I would have too. How lovely for your mum to get the LV bag. Very nice!
Sounds like we’d be two peas in a classy picnicing pod! Just can’t go wrong with junk now can you? And I think my mom is having fun flaunting her new bag everywhere she goes…at least she’d better be! 🙂
Awesome Tailgating prowess my friend. The party never stops. Keep rolling CBXB/Jazz Hands. You have earned that second nickname from me cuz well…..You rock those Jazz Hands with such style.
I proudly accept my new nickname, as I have worked tirelessly on my jazz hands, dammit!
I recognize hard work combined with natural ability any day of the week.
Hahaha, your pictures always make me happy. Those twins are getting so big! What’s up with that? One of these times across the midwest, you’ll have to stop in STL for a cold one with this nice guy I know.
I waved to you when we drove through STL late Friday night! And one of these days I am going to stop to see this nice guy I know in that city…
Great top photo!
Thank you! We were awfully happy to be there together!
