Friends, Fun, and Football

Oh how I love football weekends! As busy as they are, they bring me so much happiness. I left for Clemson Friday after school. I thought I was ready and packed, so all I would have to do is throw my stuff in the car and leave, but I thought wrong. All day Friday I thought about how I wasn't happy with my outfit to wear to to the game (I know silly, especially since it was supposed to rain all day) nonetheless it was bothering me. The plan was to grab my stuff, stop by Steinmart and head out of town. Well, let me replay the events of Friday afternoon. Keep in mind all of the following events happened after a quite busy day at school.

Load my stuff and start heading towards Steinmart. OH NO! I forgot my raincoat. Especially important this weekend...had to turn around and go and get it.

OK, now I have everything. Get half a mile down the road, realize I forgot something else. Turn around again. Not happy at this point.

Finally get to Steinmart...find an outfit, and got $10.00 off and head to Clemson.

Boy was I happy to finally get there! The first stop in Clemson was to visit the Zelmers. We went to Jody's house for dinner and to play with baby Parker. That little boy is just the cutest. Best of all, Lorrie had his onesie on that I got him and it looked perfect.

After I left Jody's I traveled to Amy and Duke who were so graciously willing to put me up for the night. Amy and I chatted and caught up with each other for a while and then I hit the bed. Saturday morning was Gameday and what time did the game start, but of course noon. What other time does Clemson play? I was up-and-at-um early and went to meet Amanda to tailgate for a while. Please excuse my lovely was a rather muggy and humid day.

After some tailgating, I met Chris and Danny for the game. Meredith graciously let me buy her ticket from her for the game and the cheering began. I love Clemson football!

I was worried about the weather for the game, but it started out ok. Overcast, but that was better than rain. Then the rain was still manageable. I won't melt, right? Then the first lighting delay. Call me a fair weather fan, but I left at this point to go back to Hal's with Amanda. I was regretting my decision until I saw that there was a second lighting delay when we were watching it on T.V. As the Tigers might have the record for the longest game, we got a win! What a fun weekend filled with good friends, fun, and football!
