a fall football game...



Saturday morning I woke up to a call from my little brother Alex. He had an extra ticket to the Utes football game and was wondering if I wanted to come with him. Did he even really need to ask?! 

It was so much fun to go back to my Alma Mater and driving into Salt Lake City brought back a rush of memories. I drove by the spot where Trevor and I first met! Where he proposed, where we went to school and where we first lived together as husband as wife. Oh Salt Lake City and especially the University of Utah will always hold a special and dear place in my heart.

The trees were yellow, the weather was just brisk enough for a sweater and everyone was buzzing with excitement. If there is one thing the University of Utah knows how to do right, it is football. Swarms of red, tailgate parties, chants and cheers - a total experience!








Alex and I had hit up a tailgate party where Red Robin was providing all the food, and tons of prizes and games were being played. I won a Utes beanie and a flag that I was very excited about :) haha

The game was fun to watch with my brother and his friends, and we dominated - a landslide win of 49 - 6. The adrenaline was high, and it was just a perfect text book afternoon. Thanks Alex for thinking of me and inviting me - LOVE YOU! &Go UTES!

    1. You can always pick a team from wherever your from! I am not a huge baseball fan imparticar, but I love the atmosphere of baseball games. I grew up going to padres games in San Diego so I consider my team when it comes to baseball the padres :) and the chargers when it comes to nfl football :) but nothing beats my passion for the utes!!! ;)
