September Kick Off!

Happy September!! Can you believe we're rolling into fall? My favorite thing about fall (besides fall fashion, halloween, pumpkin spice lattes, and chilli...) is college football. I'm not the most avid sports fan and I'm first to admit that keeping up with the game is a bit of a challenge, but I do love a Saturday spent tailgating and cheering on the NC State Wolfpack! Speaking of tailgate, now that we're adults and our college days of grabbing a case of cold beer and a Box of Bojangles and "figuring it out once we get there" are long gone, I have some inspiration on how things will go down this coming up weekend. Being a Meredith Alum, I've attended many a game at Carter Finley, and I can proudly say that I have never been one to wear a Wolfpack Tee Shirt. Saturday I'll be wearing this online exclusive from Target!
Now, onto the actual tailgate. We're heading to the game with some good friends and I think we have a pretty decent crowd. So far on our menu, we've got hot dogs, cole slaw, buffalo dip + chips, pineapple salsa, corn on the cob, pasta salad, and maybe some football brownies. Of course no tailgate would be complete without cornhole and ladder ball! I'm busting out my inner Martha and probably attempting some sort of paper bunting and I've gotten a table cloth and other decore. Our tent will be decked out.

Do you take tailgating as seriously as I do? Who do you pull for?!


ps. I'm not the only one who likes Hot Pants as you can tellll...!
