Being a crazy pants aunt, I love to
vicariously live first experiences through with my Iowa twins. These three and a half-year old slices of perfection went to their first dance – a sock hop – at their school last week.
All by themselves.
Coming home to unwind after dancing her socks off, Princess B. changed in to her most appropriate college game day attire in support of our Iowa Hawkeyes.
You know who else had spirit(s) on Saturday?
Of course you do. Dada CBXB and yours truly were at the ready to see our fave football team take the field for an 11am kick-off. What we weren’t anticipating during our weekly trashy family tradition of touchdown shots was guzzling five before the clock struck noon.
Luckily for us, I’d made my blogfamous Shit Dip that also acts as an extremely effective cleanse if you eat the entire dish of butter, corn, jalapenos and cream cheese.
Dada CBXB made his “best batch of ribs ever” which is the tag line he uses in accompaniment of any fresh batch of anything that comes off of his grill.
Thankfully our halftime helpers laid foundation for the additional two touchdowns the Hawks scored during the second half.
With a 49-35 Iowa Hawkeye win over the Purdue Boilermakers, the party was just starting for our football afternoon. Except I switched to a little H2O in order to save face with the fur balls in my presence (that would be Clark, Cousin Eddie and Presh).
Super fun Saturday football proved a hard recovery on my day of ‘rest’.
But hey, like a building in Nashville’s quaint Germantown says…
Here’s to a week of you doing you.
