It’s The Weeekeeeeend Baby!

23 Sep

…and I’m ready for it.   I checked off several items on my To Do list.  One being creating a textile pattern with Adobe Illustrator.  Check out the Orange and Blue..a tribute to my beloved school the University of Florida!

Go Gators!

The Gators travel to Kentucky on Saturday for their first road game of the season.  I’m hoping this pattern is a good luck charm that will help them bring home a win!  We’re having a game viewing party at our new digs, this will be the first time some of our friends have seen our new place.

Tonight is date night. Huum….. we nothing specific planned.  Perhaps we have a bottle of wine at our favorite wine bar, WineStyles, then go listen to a live band by the lake.  What are you up to this weekend?  Share and share alike 🙂

Florida Vs. Tennessee

16 Sep

I’m all geared up and ready to go!  Dr. B and I are driving to Gainesville tomorrow morning for the Florida vs. Tennessee football game.  Although this is the 3rd game of the season, This will be the first real test for the Gators against a team in the SEC. This should be a great game, both teams are 2-0, although Florida is ranked 16th in the AP poll.

In addition to the game, the College of Journalism and Communications is having its annual alumni reunion tailgate before the game.  It will be great to hang out with old friends, eat some BBQ, and talk Florida football!!!

Have a great Friday,

The Swamp

"The Swamp"


Dr.B. and I are driving up to Gainesville on Saturday to watch my alma mater, the University of Florida (UF) *Go Gators*, beat up on LSU!
This should be a very good game.  Last week in the AP poll Florida was ranked #7 and they were crushed by #1 Alabama.  After that loss, Florida fell to #14 and LSU moved up to #12.  They are will battle it out in the Swamp, which is the nickname for Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Hopefully UF will win so we can move up in the poll.

This will be the first UF football game Dr.B has ever attended.  I told him he is now officially a Florida Gator, whether he likes it or not 🙂  He bleeds orange and blue just like I do!  The game doesn’t start until 7:30, but were going to drive up early Saturday morning and tour the campus on our bikes.  I’m looking forward to showing Dr. B the campus where I spent four of the best years of my life.

Then at 5:30, were going to tailgate with my fellow alumni at the College of Journalism and Communications.  The college is right across the street from the stadium, so it will be a rowdy tailgate….you know who wild and crazy journalism students are. lol!

After the game we will probably hang out at one of the local bars, like Balls Purple, or Gators Sports Bar.  That’s if we can stand any more of the rowdy college kids.  We end up pulling an “old people” aka.  going to the hotel and calling it a night 🙂

Any big plans for the weekend? Any college football fans out there?
