One word is getting me through this week: Football.
Yes everyone, get excited. College football starts on Saturday (technically Thursday). If you know me, you know almost nothing gets me more giddy than college football. To me… it’s fireworks, the 4th of July, Christmas, chocolate and all wonderful things rolled up in one fantastic bundle. And right now, there is nothing to complain about. Iowa currently has a perfect season (that won’t last long), the weather isn’t frigid yet, and the leaves still have yet to fall. OMG I’m so happy.
I’m kicking off the season by going to the Badger football game on Saturday. No, it’s not an Iowa game, but I’ll settle. Camp Randall isn’t too shabby on a Saturday morning. But you can bet I’ll be repping black and gold somehow.
How else am I celebrating football season? By joining my first fantasy league this year! Yesterday was draft day and it was so much fun. Why have I never done this before?
Apparently my team is very “injury prone”, but I don’t cuuuurrr because I have Aaron Rodgers! And Gronk! The only thing that broke my heart? The chick before me in league snagged Eric Decker. Playing dirty I see. My team name? Gronk If You Love the Packers.
This weekend was just full of good things. I FINALLY broke out of my running funk. I ran 14 miles with my friends Ryan and Krista Saturday morning and it felt oh, so good. I didn’t love the first 3 miles, but what else is new? I cruised through the rest of the miles with ease and I ended with optimistic thoughts and a mood that skyrocketed. But that’s now in the past and I have a whole other dreadful week ahead of me. I have 15 on the schedule this Saturday…before the Badger game.
Of course, I can’t end a blog post without a picture of my adorable niece. Yesterday I took Mila’s 2-month pics and this little cutie just gets me every time. I’m obsessed!
