Week 2: Clemson vs Troy

Ah, Clemson, I've missed you.

I've missed the early Saturday mornings in our tailgate lot. The time spent wandering around downtown checking out the shops. The visiting with friends that we only get to see a few times a year {mostly during football season}. The excellent tailgate food. And the football.
Definitely the football games.
Clemson has played five {that's right - FIVE} games away from Clemson. It's about time they finally made it back home for a game!

But to tell you the truth, we spent most of our time in Clemson socializing with our favorite brother/brother-in-law, doing a little shopping, and hopping from tailgate to tailgate... not so much time watching the actual football.

First game in Clemson as a married couple! :)
... and of course, Patrick got roped into a quick game of cornhole with some of our good friends.

Which was fine, because it meant that I got to hang out with these two mamas-to-be.

There was a game, too. We made it in for most of the first quarter and a good chunk of the second one. But second half? Ha.

Clemson vs Troy
September 10, 2016
30-24, Clemson
Have you gathered from this post yet that we were terrible fans this weekend? I mean first of all, Patrick isn't even a fan of Clemson to begin with and second of all, we didn't make it through the first half of the game. And we were on the road by the time the second half started.
In our defense, it was hot. It was Troy. I had a friend coming into town and a Maroon 5 concert to get to.
Either way, GO TIGERS! 2-0 to start the season! ... even if you didn't look like Clemson at all for the second week in a row.
Next week, Patrick and I are participating in that whole "marriage compromise" thing and we'll be going to USC's home game rather than Clemson's game. USC will be playing ECU and not going to lie, I'm pretty excited about our tailgate for next week. We've got some fun things planned!


  1. You're tailgates look like SO much fun!! Yay for a great start to the season for both our teams :)

  2. Tailgating is so much fun and it looks like you guys know how to do it up right!! :)
    P.S. you look so much like a friend of mine that I do double takes every time I see your photos haha

  3. It would be funny if you dressed as a Pirate for the USC v. ECU game. My eyes are watering right now thinking about your husband's face when he saw you :o)

    That Clemson game was like a bad scrimmage. They best shape up.

  4. Tailgating is the most fun for the game. I'm glad you had fun back in Clemson and I can't wait about your tailgate this weekend! Jess at Just Jess

  5. YAY for your first Clemson tailgate of the year! And congrats on your win! Cornhole is always a definite must have at a tailgate, so fun! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  6. Ah yay football season is here! Looks like such a fun day! Have fun behind enemy lines next weekend!

  7. Sounds like you guys had a great tailgate! Love the whole compromise thing - can't wait to hear what fun things you have planned for that tailgate!

  8. Yay for your first game as a married couple! Tailgating is the best part. We were a little disappointed in how they played last weekend but a win is a win!

  9. Loved seeing you this weekend! I hate this marriage compromise you have…you are a much better wife than I am!
