30 FOR 30: Football Favorites Countdown- Monster Cookies

These things are amazing! You CANNOT eat just one.  Originally called the “Monster” Cookie my friends and I have jokingly named it the “CRACK COOKIE” because they are tremendously addicting!  Which means GREAT for tailgate season!

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!
