Way back in 2011

It was the year Iowa State gave us a late season L, putting 'Bama in the BCS Championship, and giving us Stanford, whose band forever haunts my nightmares.

While we were tailgating for Bedlam, Katy, my friend since freshman year (shoutout to Zink Hall!), and Korey told me they were having a baby.

I bought this outfit the very next week because I just knew they were having a girl.

They had a boy.

And I guess because I’m a super creep of a human, I decided to keep it because eventually I’d have a kid and whatever I’m hilariously creepy.

But can you even? No. You cannot.

Now we have our own little legacy, and she’s Homecoming Queen material, if I don’t say so myself.

Here's to hoping she's outgrown her premie clothes and fits into this by October.


20 days 'till game day.

Just a funny lady in the 313.

Saturday was perfection in Stillwater.

K. Smith and I have season tickets, and while my attending of Oklahoma State football games isn't breaking news, I thought I'd share with you the entertainment that comes from sitting in section 313.

To my immediate left sits an adorable lady who you might think is a grandmother to one of the fellas on the field. In all honesty, I'm sure she has season tickets to wrestling, basketball, soccer and probably even equestrian events.

Why does she stand out, you ask? It's not her always glamorous orange wardrobe or her amazing ability to stay within the 12 inches of allotted space. It's what she's yelling at the players on the field.

Please note, she's screaming these what-should-be memos to the field. This little old lady is yelling these from the top of 313. If you don't find this funny that's fine. Carry on.

“Gilbert. I expect more from you.” "Defense, Dana has been running this offense for years stop acting surprised. You know Dana, this isn't new.” “Defense, don’t let this quarterback get into a groove. Bad things happen with the quarterback gets into a groove. ” “Good for you, Gilbert. You had a lot to make up from last week and you’re doing great. Good job, Gil.” "My goodness, Gundy! What's your plan of attack? I expect more, Gundy. This is just not acceptable."

In unrelated, yet makes my heart beat a little happier news, a few things that happened this week: The adorable Max in the ABC sitcom*, Happy Endings, refers to someone as Big Country. 500 people decided to follow me on Instagram, that's pretty cool.


Hope y'all have a great week.

*the one that will forever have my heart after using my tweet in one of the commercials.

Fifty Shades of Orange.

Fifty days until football season. Read as: there are only fifty days before waving wheat, Thursday night black unis, orange fountains, sneaking limeys out of the Penny. Fifty days until Christmas comes early wrapped with a big orange bow. 

Once I wrote about tailgating... then I thought that was silly and I'd just date someone who did that for a living. (That's a joke. I never thought that...) Honestly, it's going to make this season more fun. He's like my own personal sports google. He's probably going to hate it.

Loving Pantone 166 is something that comes with drinking the Koolaid as a freshman, but the black uni combi is my favorite. The grey I could take or leave, but the black, oh the black.

Sure, I'm talking about unis. If you want to discuss our D holding the offense in the red zone or the thoughts behind Lunt starting as a true freshman you're in the wrong place. Look elsewhere, you know... like Mr. Pistols or something.

I think it's time we bring back Orange Fridays. As an Oklahoma State alumna, orange Fridays are something that just becomes common practice. I put orange on every Friday without a second thought.

Kate Spade cross-body is currently having a little party in the sale section, clearly just in time for football season. This is perfect for holding sunglasses, $$$ and of course tickets.

If you're feeling generous you could send this my way. I wouldn't mind at all.

Cowboys take the W.

My late-blooming love for tailgating doesn’t water-down the goosebumps that cover my arms the second the pre-game {poorly put together} video graces the screens at Boone Pickens. Sure I didn't start really tailgating until I was a junior or so..

Black on Black: my absolute favorite. I thought – hoped – the black on black color combo was going to wait until Bedlam. And, then, I hoped it would at least be paired with the black helmet.

All those years of working at the Shoe Bank on commission - and making bank from moms who weren't cut out for tailgating - were not worth it.

I love everything about game days. Even Thursday games when you have to leave OKC a little early and are a little too tired on Friday.
