30 for 30 football favorites countdown: Koozies

I LOVE koozies… They are such great souvenirs to remember fun places you have been or things you have done.  So why not make a custom koozie for your tailgate?  They are cheep, fun and such a cool thing for guest to take away (and bring back for the next game)!

Here is what I believe I am going to order from Custom Ink:

What do you think? I was trying to come up with a fun hashtag so we can *hopefully* track our tailgate guest pictures!

30 for 30 football favorites countdown: Ultimate Chair

Tailgating is like a marathon and chairs are like running attire in this analogy.  Having a good chair is important! I found this chair online and I am definitely envious!

30 for 30 football favorites countdown: Beer+Frozen Lemonade+Vodka

One of my favorite drinks to have during those hot tailgates is a “snakebite”.  After googling it…. come to find out a “snakebite” is a completely different drink then what I know it as…. but who cares right?  As long as it taste good thats what is important.

3 Cans of beer (My favorite is Coors Light)

1 Large Can Frozen Lemonade

1/2 can vodka (use the empty frozen lemonade can)

Chucks of Lemon

 

Sorry for no picture… I never think to take one because as soon as we make a pitcher it is gone!

30 for 30 football favorites countdown: Camp Fire

When the months get a little cooler and you need something to keep you warm this little beauty does the trick!

It is easy to pack and it works great! This is where you will find me if it is chilly outside! This is the BEST thing for tailgating during chilly games!  LOVE Camp Fire in a Can!

Here are my favorite beers to tailgate with.

Now whats a tailgate with out the classic Silver Bullet? Coors Light is a classic easy to drink beer.  Great when it is hot and you need to cool down!  Also, the perfect beer during drinking games!

Craft beer needs some love and one of my favorites is Blood and Honey from Revolver.

Also, I am loving a couple of Fort Worth brews:

Martin House– Gateway XPA

Rahr– Blonde

Rahr– Buffalo Butt

30 FOR 30: Football Favorites Countdown- Yeti Cooler

One of the most important tasks at tailgating is keeping the beer cold! If you haven’t discovered Yeti Coolers you are missing out! Now they are pricey for a cooler but TOTALLY worth it!  We LOVE our Yeti’s and they really do keep everything crazy cold for LONG periods of time!   They come in ALL sizes.  Here is the website says:

“YETI Coolers are built to be indestructible and keep ice for days.  Built for going toe-to-toe with hungry grizzlies.  Built for the prepared.  Built for better Monday morning water cooler talk.  Built for the long haul.  Built for the wild.”

I mean if it can handle grizzlies it can handle us tailgaters!

30 FOR 30: Football Favorites Countdown- The Chilly Pad

The heat can catch up with you during those early season football games! Of course you can cool down with a beer but sometimes you need a little something more.  One of my FAVORITE products is the Chilly Pad!

What is a Chilly Pad?

“Made from a hyper-evaporative material that retains water while remaining dry to the touch, The Chilly Pad® is an innovative way to cool down while enduring outdoor heat and/or high levels of physical activity. When wet, the towel begins to evaporate and cool, providing cool, soft comfort to the user. When it stops cooling, simply re-wet the towel in hot or cold water and wring it out. Within minutes, it’s cool again” – Frogg Toggs

30 FOR 30: Football Favorites Countdown

Since football season is ONE month away I decided to do a countdown of one item a day that I LOVE about football!

I am a SOONER at heart so many of my items show my love for the University of Oklahoma but most items can convert to other teams!

First up you ask? LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!  When we tailgate we go to SooneRVillage! Mark’s parents have an Airstream which is PERFECT.  We can cook, have electricity and most importantly a CLEAN bathroom! This tailgate season will be our 7th year there and our tailgate continues to grow…. Mostly because of all the new babies but new friends attend too! Here are a few pictures of our tailgate!

What are you favorite football items?  I will be covering food, fashion, tech and much more in the next 30 days!

Catching Up

Where has this summer gone?! I have been traveling the last 3 weeks so keeping up the blog has been a challenge!

I have an OOTD post coming soon, a fun recipe post and maybe a little something special!

I went to Indiana and Pennsylvania for work! Ate a HUGE Chicken Fried Steak… Not really my thing but when in Rome (or some hole in the wall bar in Indiana)! IMG_2478IMG_2483

Mark and I ventured to a craft brewer in Fort Worth called Martin House! We had SO much fun.  Loved the souviner glass and over favorite brew was the Imperial Texan!IMG_2488

I also ventured to Florida and successfully surprised my brother, aunt, uncle and grandparents! We had a great time enjoying family!

I ventured back to Fort Worth to celebrate my birthday! Mark and his parents took me to my favorite Capital Grill!e! It was YUMMY!

Then it was back to Indiana for Marks family reunion this weekend.  Let’s just say 17 hour road trips are not my thing.  I did get some awesome pictures! It was great to meet and see Mark’s family and just have a good ol’ time! Seriously cornfields in the summer are a sight to see! This place looked like a movie set!
