Sports & Food

I mean, the title of this blog post says it all. Those two things consumed my weekend and I'm not mad about it. Friday night involved dinner and dessert with my parents, grandparents, sister (& NIECE!) and other extended family members. I didn't take a single photo that night, or even think to since I was busy having fun and catching up. It's not very often we all are together so it was a fun evening- for the most part. The downside? Blowing my tire right in front of my grandparents house. How does that happen?! It was an embarrassing, frustrating 45 minute delay in the night- but thankfully Jared is a tire-changing pro and every other man in my family got to watch him and "help" ;)
Saturday night we had tickets with Jared's company to the Reds game that included food, hooray! It was an overcast day with some spotty showers mixed in, but it was still fun being downtown together and enjoying some baseball and tasty food. 


The Reds got creamed, but we really didn't care- baseball season is long over in our minds... Because hello?! 
It's football season and our Bengals are now 3-0. Talk about a crazy game yesterday, and a division game at that. I was hoarse at the end of it from yelling so much, whoops! My in-laws had us over for all kinds of delicious food and of course some puppy lovin' too.

Now excuse me while I try to keep my eyes open today. This girl needs a weekend to recover from her jam-packed weekend!

  1. Ugh the Reds. What a horrible game. Glad the Bengals pulled out the win though! I was seriously dying during that game. The refs were not helping us out at all!

  3. That Andy Dalton touchdown made my MONTH! Who dey?!!! So glad we got to celebrate that win together, even if I did pinch your armpit. Bahah! ;) I've been telling Caleb we need to get downtown soon and just take in the views of our city and walk around a bit. We're only ever down there for weddings/work (which you totally understand) so it would be nice to be down their for leisure!! :)

  11. That sucks that you blew your tire right in front of the house, but thank goodness you Jared was able to get it fixed right away! And that food at the baseball game looks phenomenal!

  12. I was losing my mind during the second half of the game yesterday. I am still a bit shocked that they pulled it off after 17 unanswered points.. but hey, 3-0!

  15. This sounds like the dreamiest weekend to me. Nothing better than food and sports. That food looks awfully fancy for a Reds game! Yum yum! And, of course, WHO-DEY?! I still can't get over it - so intense. 3-0, baby!

  16. Being from Michigan and a Lions fan, I'll always wonder what it's like to have a good football team... ha! Sounds like it was a fabulous weekend!

  17. What a great weekend! Bummer about your car tire! And so funny about the men "helping," it's like that in my family too!

  18. Sounds like a great weekend. Sports and food go together so well, especially when it's free food!

  19. I'm so sad that both baseball season AND football season are almost over for me! BUT the Blue Jays are in the playoffs so that extends that season a bit longer whoop whoop! I wish I could get into watching the NFL but I just haven't been able to

    It's a good thing you have Jared to help with things like the tire situation - I would be completely lost if it weren't for my dad and brother. I don't even know how to change my windshield wiper blades! hahaha
