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!

New York, New York

AWWWW NEW YORK.  Such a wonderful place!  So much culture and SO MANY people. I love going but I also getting to come home!

My husband had never been so we were the “typical” tourist over the long weekend!

We stayed at the Double Tree In Times square and here is a summary of everything we did!

Thursday- Walked around times square… Ate lunch at Carnagie Deli [HUGE sandwiches] and tried out a pub and went to the mets game!

Friday- The weather was all over the place but we headed for Wall Street and to the Pier area.  Got to the One world Trade Center, so amazing but so sad reflecting on how that day changed our lives forever. Then we went to the Pier area! Sat and had a drink with a wonderful view and then ate lunch at a food truck park! We tried  and it was AMAZING! Then we headed back to change for dinner and a broadway show!  We ate at Carmines and saw Of Mice and Men with James Franco, Chris O’Dowd and Leighton Meester.  SO MUCH FUN!

Saturday- We got up and went to see Barndard College at Columbia Univeristy where AOII was founded! Then walked to see Central Park! We went to meet my cousin and stopped by Radio City Music Hall and 30 Rock. We met up with my cousin and ate lunch in her neck of the woods then ventured to see the Empire State Building.  Then ventured for some Juniors Cheesecake!  After that she left and we decided to see an off Broadway show called Avenue Q…. HILARIOUS!  Of course we were starving afterwords so we went to a hole in the wall to get some true NY Pizza…. MY FAV!

I wore my Fitbit on the last day and we walked of 25,000 steps and 10+ miles! SO CRAZY.  We loved it and hope to visit again soon!  Below are a few fun pictures!
