This is it…the day we’ve been waiting for… College Color Day. If you aren’t a college football fan then you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. College Color Day marks the kick off of the football season. It’s the day where you flaunt your team’s colors.
At our house we are HUGE college football fans. We actually started the count down to game day last weekend with a pub crawl hosted by the local chapter of the UF alumni association. So fun! Every Saturday we gather around the TV and not only watch our favorite team (Go University of Florida Gators!) but my husband will watch any and every game that looks the least bit interesting all. day. long. Our 10 year old daughter, Hannah, is right there by his side asking a million question about the games. The two of them have a special dance they do each time our team scores. They’ve been doing this since she was one. Since the two of them barely leave the couch all day I make “game day food” every Saturday. Our favorites are oven baked chicken wings, fresh veggies and french onion dip, potstickers, and when it gets cooler Velvetta, Rotel and Sausage cheese dip. Every Saturday is a fun day together cheering for our favorite team(s). (My favorite part is the inevitable nap on the couch some time during the day!) It’s a great tradition and when we are lucky enough to get tickets to an actual game that makes it even more fun!!!
So are you looking forward to football season? If so what colors are you wearing today? Check out my post in the Community Forum here and show me what team you are supporting today and if you are feeling really festive, I’d love to see a layout that shows you supporting your favorite team. You never know, it might just give you a head start on one of the September Portfolio Challenges. wink, wink
Happy Football Season everyone !!!! Love – Juli
