Five On Friday: Clemson Football Edition

Happy Friday and happy game day eve to everyone that will be cheering on their favorite team tomorrow!  I cannot believe that football season is already here.  T and I rang it in in style last night with a feast of bacon jalapeno cheese fries, buffalo chicken tenders, and margaritas.  You just can't watch a football game and eat a salad-something's just not right about that.  Tomorrow morning we'll be heading to Clemson to tailgate for the Clemson/UGA game and I could not be more excited.  Here are the five things that I'm most excited about when it comes to Clemson football season.

{one.} College Friends- All of my friends are spread out all over the southeast, and it's a rare occasion that we all get together.  Clemson football games are one of those times where we all get to be in the same place at the same time, and I cherish that.

{two.} Cowboy Boots- Its now time to bring out the ole cowboy boots.  I got to wear them a few times in Nashville last weekend, and it was glorious to reunite with them.  I forget just how comfortable these things are.  I've had them resoled twice, but the leather is still in great condition, and it's now completely worn in and supple.  I think they're the only shoes that I can wear for 12+ hours and not have a blister.

{three.} Mimosas- I love any excuse for day drinking, and football games provide the perfect one.  Especially because many of Clemson's games kick off at noon.  That means we're out at the tailgate around 8:00 with mimosas in hand.  A mimosa in an orange solo cup just tastes like Clemson football to me.


{four.} Unlimited Appetizers- Along with my fervor for day drinking, I also love to snack on appetizers.  I could give up every regular meal in my life if I could just always munch on appetizers.  This week I'll be making these Seasoned Pretzels. They are a favorite among our group, so I know they'll be a hit.  They are also great for games in the earlier part of the season because they don't melt or spoil under the intense South Carolina heat.

{five.} Football- Well I guess I can't leave out the reason behind all of this drinking, eating, and tailgating...the football. Looking forward to being in this stadium surrounded by orange tomorrow!

Have a great weekend everyone!  And a special thank you to A. Liz Adventures, Carolina Charm, Hello! Happiness, and The Good Life Blog for this awesome link up.

  1. I'm so jealous that you were at the game! I saw the Backstreet Boys that night, so I didn't even get to watch the game. :[
