Weekend Winks – Football Fail

The failure of my fave football teams showing up and kicking ass this weekend didn’t deter me from having an overall fabulous time with the fam in our usual Saturday shenanigans.

Game day began with Ted and I sharing breakfast – he goes straight for the cheese while I stick to my egg.

Pussy approved breakfast.

While my fur ball was busy scarfing down my food, the twins were taste testing apples at an Iowa orchard.

Our family’s version of Snow White….

As the Iowa Hawkeyes kickoff drew near, New Cat assumed his position as greeter, anxiously awaiting our arrivals.

The bar was stocked with my dad’s rot gut vodka (Taaka vodka could seriously start your throat on fire if you chose to smoke a cigarette while consuming), my beloved Captain and Popcorn Sutton White Whiskey was on standby for our traditional touchdown shots.

Cocktails - full bar

Stocked bar, warm bellies.

Naturally we can’t have cocktails galore without tasty tailgating treats.

Let the game day grazing begin!

My mini manse morphed into a brief media room when we were unable to get our Hawkeye game on TV due to the previous game running long. Typically this would simply be an inconvenience but since it was our in state rivalry game – the Iowa Hawkeyes vs. the Iowa State Cyclones, we were antsy to get the football show on the bigger screen.

TV fail

Double vision.

My pussies were less than impressed to be kicked off the couch and resorted to the front window, where they plotted how to keep their mother sleepless on a Saturday night.

Waaay into the game.

Your football game is stupid and you will pay.

Ignoring the holes being scorched into my head from the kit cats, moonshine was passed around for two Hawkeye touchdowns.

Touchdown...two in three minutes. #sos

Cockier with every swig of this cocktail.

Busy with moonshine, Skinny Pirates and the football game, I turned my back for one second and found New Cat perusing among the food.

Up to no....

New New is fully of naughty.

And when I whipped back around from scolding the pesky pussy, my Hawkeyes had lost the game by a last second Cyclone field goal.

FAIL.

No bragging rights this year.

Not only did I promise to be done with my team (fair weathered fan right here) this year in my post game misery, Ted wallowed in this disappointing loss by demanding a belly rub.

So upset, he needed a belly rub.

Rub me now, Bitch.

Drowning the rest of my Saturday sorrows in Skinny Pirates, I was able to get my ass to Target (my mothership) Sunday morning for the debut of the Altuzarra for Target line.  And rolling out of bed for this proved worthwhile as Altuzarra produced beyond cute merch that I was able to manhandle, making my football heavy heart skip a beat.

Sunday religion  Altuzarra for Target

My version of church.

Back to the mini manse in time for the Tennessee Titans game, New Cat could barely watch as the Dallas Cowboys kicked some Nashville tail.

Dismal display by the Titans

Is this football bullshit over yet?

Discouraged by the outlook of football season for my teams, I blew off the losing steam with a run in the crispy fall sun.

Lipstick and lunged my way through the park. Let off steam...

Lipstick and lunged my way through the park.

And then I parked it for Sunday night date night with my fave feline.

Wine and pussy time.

Wine and pussy time.

Cheers to a fabulous week my friends!

CBXB!

    How you can transmit the feelings of your gorgeous cats it’s a mystery but it works especially in the picture were the were resorted in the front window, poor pussies 🙂 ! Adore your intelligent version of church, it would go every day !!

  2. At least you had drinks and snacks 😀 my cat loves cheese too, but her stomach can’t handle it, so I have to make sure, she doesn’t have any…
    I really need to catch up on some blog reading here, I have been so busy, but as always your posts bring a smile to my face, sparkly lady! Btw, I just started over with a new blog, maybe you’d like to have a look at it, it’s called queenofsparkles 😀

    • queenofasparkles?! Um, yes PLEASE! Absolutely going to look it up! Is it on WordPress?
      Happy to bring a smile to your face and excited to get caught up on what you’ve been up to. Loving the hair, girl!
      Ted’s stomach doesn’t love what cheese does to it either, so I just let him have it once in a while and it’s the teeniest, tiniest piece. But he acts like it’s a Thanksgiving dinner, so it makes me laugh. Cheers! XO

  3. Hahaha, yeah, your teams had a rough go of it this weekend for sure. Hey though, at least you had fun and looked good suffering through it.

    • One of the reasons we started the touchdown moonshine tradition is because we had a dismal season and the games were god awful. So fingers crossed this isn’t another reason to do moonshine shots at first downs….! Then we’ll really look special when we’re suffering but we’ll be having fun!

Holla at me!
