Blog Update: Football and Food!

Because it has been awhile since I have updated the blog, I have a lot of pics to put on here. Even though I woke up early to study for my test...I just want to finally post!! Brad and I have been feeling sick all weekend, and today is no different. We are supposed to take care of each other in sickness right?? Even if we look bad? haha

I think we will just be lounging around today while I study for one more test, two quizzes and a paper I have to have done by tomorrow!! I already took two other tests this weekend (darn that testing center!). It has not been the most enjoyable weekend of all time, but the football game and conference helped boost it up.

First Football game: BYU vs Oklahoma
Excited for the game?

What an amazing win! There was a huge party in the Wilkinson Center were thousands of people came to watch the big game!! The Wilk was PACKED, with people filling the ballroom, the terrace and the Varsity Theatre. It was so exciting to watch us win such a huge game with so many people around.
One of the best parts of the game was Max Hall's SHOCKED face at the end!

1st Home Football Game: BYU vs. Florida State
Here are pics of us at the very first home BYU Football game!!
Although we was still the first home game! We have seats on the 2nd row, right behind the team, which is AMAZING. Talk about superfans huh? :) We got a few shots of Jeff and the team on the sidelines.

2nd Home Football game vs. Colorado
Although not the most beautiful game, at least we pulled off a large margin win!Here are the captains on the field. I just want Max Hall to stop with those interceptions!! We had fun though. After wins, the team comes around and gives high fives to all the people along the first row (anyone can run up there after the game) Luckily I was able to snag a pic with Jeffy! (even though my body looks weirdly contorted.

Finally, we round off this weekend with the BYU vs. Utah State Game
It was the first cold game of the season! I think thats why Brad and I started feeling so crappy that night. We were out in the cold for four hours! Although I had a coat, a sweatshirt, a blanket, warm boots, a hat and gloves, I still got sick. But what is a diehard fan to do? Recover during the week! Even though Max Hall is now leading the country in interceptions....still love the Cougs!

Lastly, I just had to document my very first crockpot dinner! Brad and I both work from about 12:30- 5:00, so we have the half hour from 12:00-12:30 t0 eat lunch in between class and work. The other day, I spent that time making this dinner so it would be ready when we got home! It worked out great! I can't wait to try out more recipes on it!

Sorry that so many of my pics are of me smiling and Brad looking awkward. For some reason, he HATES taking pictures and tries to just be goofy in all of them...what a weird kid I married... :) Gotta love him though!

Whew! Well that's it for now! I'll try to be better on keeping the blog updated from now on!

Man, you make me want a crock pot so bad! We didn't get one because we thought about getting these cool dream pots that would make a crock pot not needed in our kitchen..but we came down from that cloud real fast since our dream pots won't be affordable for quite some time haha. Well done my friend though, your meal looked rather yummy. Hope you are feeling better! Let's hang out sometime soon.
