A {Busy} Virtual Coffee

Whew! What a CRAZZZZY day!

I have been running around all day...and it is nice to finally sit down and settle in with a steaming cup 'o joe.

If we were really meeting for coffee today I'd tell you that I'm famous. Ok...not really famous, but it felt like it. See, I was at the gym this morning looking uber cute {that's sarcasm, just in case you missed it} and a girl walked up and asked me if I was Redhead Reverie. Turns out she's Inspirations by Ivy a fellow blogger right here in Iowa City. How cool is that? I've been meaning to contact her because she is a super kick ass photographer. I love meeting fellow's so much fun to put a face with the words!

Then I'd share some pictures from the football game on Saturday. I know you've been going through withdrawal right? I haven't talked football for weeks, but Saturday was a home game and you know what that means...TAILGATING!!!!

Name that movie!
Plus it was a night game...EVEN BETTER.

My hubby, the chef, prepared BBQ pulled chicken with onions and peppers YUM! Our neighboring tailgaters said it was "Badass", which made B2 think he was the next Bobby Flay.

The game wasn't without drama. First we had to make sure we were wearing the right colors. Odd sections wear black and even wear yellow. I think it turned out pretty well.

Then we had to perform a couple of "stunts". The athletic department put these cards on everyone's seat and then when you hold them up they make a design...I can't believe it actually worked!

Then it was game time...Ugh...seriously. I need a Xanax after these games. First we were ahead, then we were tied, then they were ahead, then we finally KICKED NORTHWESTERN'S BUTT!! Hurrah! This is a losing streak that needed to be broken and I was glad I was there.

The late game made for a late night, and an early morning on Sunday was painful. However, knowing I was spending it with my mom, stepdad and Toby the wonderdog made it MUCH easier.

We visited their new condo in Eldridge {only 45 minutes away!!!} I know right?...much better than the eight hours to Michigan. Now they are in crazy packing mode and as it looks right now they will unfortunately be moving amid some cold temps and quite possibly snow...YIKES. But they will be here and that's all that matters. 

Ready to play in Mimi and Papa's backyard.
Oh, and if we were really meeting for coffee I'd offer you some of my leftover CHOCOLATE birthday cake. Yeah...I'm a year older. Although not as old as I originally thought. I think it took me till Sunday {the big day} to realize I was only turning 38 instead of 39...Duh. But hey, at least it gave me one more year before the big 4-0. 

Well, I gotta run. Dinner turned into an all evening drama that the kids didn't get to eat, because I started it too late {mom fail}. So off to bed with the little hooligans and B2 and I will settle down for a late dinner...and save the rest for tomorrow. 

I think I'll head on over to Amy's and see what everyone else is up to as I dine on my pork loin with roasted carrots and cous cous...mmmmmm.

That's so cool that you were recognized/approached by a fellow blogger!! You are famous!! I am so impressed at the football team spirit where you are-- the bleachers look so cool in alternating black and gold (and they're so filled with fans!) and the formations made by the colored paper are really cool. Happy Belated birthday-- cake looks yummy! I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't remember how old I am!! (45--- but I had to sit here and calculate it!!-- guess I'm in denial? Or maybe its cuz I don't feel that old) Thanks for coffee!

i'm so meeting you next year (when you are 40 LOL) for the night game -- so fun!! B2's dish does look badass. i didn't tell you i finally found *the* Real SImple magazine at Target -- yippee!! i wanted a hardcopy :)

Holy cow! That is some football crowd! And what a hoot to be recognized in person as your blogging identity! That has never happened to me, I think my readership consists of my immediate family and old two friends. I could use some pulled chicken right now, maybe I'll just go and grab another cup of coffee. Congratulations on your mom finally moving closer to you. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the snow stays away until they are there. See you next week!

Yum that choc cake looks delish. Hope you had a lovely birthday. How cool do those card designs look, the most exciting thing I have played a part in, in a crowd is a mexican wave, but this is brilliant x x x x
