Over the Weekend: It's Football Time!


I'm back! After taking the longest break from blogging since starting First Impressions back in January, I am back and excited for another FULL week of posts! Last week and Over the Weekend, I spent my days moving into a brand new apartment. I'm talking 300 more square feet, walk-in closet (hallelujah!), huge kitchen, and so long to the concrete floors and showering in the dark (last place had a corner, stand up shower, with zero light over it). I am more than thrilled with my new place and had so much fun decorating. Not this week, but next, you'll get lots of peaks into the new digs and boy do I have lots of stories and tips to share with you regarding moving. So many things I wish I had known, did differently and some tips that I am sooo glad people shared with me. All coming your way Labor Day week!!

Now on to the fun stuff. As many of you know, I am a HUGE football fan (go VOLS and Steelers!!)! Growing up in the South, football is more than a sport… it's a way of life (I'm sure that's quoted in a movie or two somewhere). It's no secret that fall is my favorite season and football plays a huge part in that. I've gotten a little bit of a fix with preseason NFL, but nothing compares to a Saturday game day in the South. So naturally I had to dedicate an ENTIRE WEEK to gearing up for football season. The first NCAA game kicks off this week, including the VOLS on Sunday (yes, Sunday), so all this week I'll bring you posts on tailgating as an alum, game day food that is healthier but doesn't compromise on taste, how to tailgate the right way with a tailgate trunk from Mill & Mon, and more! So stay tuned all this week as we gear up for FOOTBALL TIME (in Tennessee, or whomever you cheer for)!

  1. I'm a HUGE Steelers fan! Football is big in the Northeast, but not as big in the South, and I'm kind of jealous. I love football, and it just makes me that much more excited for fall. Enjoy your new apartment, and have a great year!
