Saturday morning, I ran around getting ready for the second home NCSU game as well as a friend’s bridal shower. Strangely, fall arrived very early & the high for Saturday was a chilly & misty 62. Instead of my planned outfit {black dress & red accessories}, I ended up wearing jeans {thanks Lee for sending them to me} & a red long sleeve light sweater.

Rhiannon’s shower was held at her mom’s house about 45 minutes away. It was a beautiful house with fun pink decorations & filled with family & friends all there to celebrate.

Congrats Rhiannon!

We played BRIDE bingo while Rhiannon opened gifts. We left to head to the game before she finished opening all the gifts, but her family & friends gave her some fun things!

Gifts Galore!

Kelly & I arrived at the newlyweds Jessica & Micheal’s tailgate. Jessica & Michael courageously got married during hurricane Irene then missed the first NCSU home game while they were unwinding in St Lucia. It was great to hear their stories & catch up with them on the truck tailgate.

Tailgating fun even in the rain.

After a few beers, a fleece & rain jacket slipped on, & munching on fruit, dips, & cupcakes, we barely noticed the rain & cold! We had a great time together & it was made even better that NCSU beat S Alabama 35-13.

Great crowd & game at CFS
