If You Can't Beat Them...

So there you have it- my first football game ever. I was so excited I barely notice how disappointing the first half was. But my wonderful husband, with little to no nagging, brought me to see the Pats play in their season-opener against Buffalo. Right here I caught the kickoff, not bad considering we had seats in the highest section of the stadium. It was amazing enough to see the game from such a phenomenal view. It turned out to be the perfect day, and I have the sunburn to prove it...




We also got there in the morning to tailgate, meet up with all Phil's friends, and have some beer (or in my case, water). I knew this was going to be fun, but really had no clue what a great day it was going to be. We packed some food, drinks and camp chairs and met up with our friends for grilling, good times, and to talk it up before and after the game. (You also have to love knowing the right people in order to get free parking just steps away from the stadium.)

And yes, I brought my knitting. I didn't bring it with me, as checking any type of belongings to a game is a pain in the ***, but there was plenty of time after the game, in between all the good food to catch up on the pea pod set. I finished the body and moved on to the sleeves. Pretty easy, considering I really only spent about a half hour of the day on it, since my hands were usually full of food!


But here's the body, ready for sleeves, collar, and itty bitty buttons. Its so soft and cuddly-I can't wait to finish it. This week I'll be on the hunt for a pullver baby sweater, in a kind of eddie bauer style, something to match what his daddy wears... perhaps in a yummy light brown or taupe so I don't get sick of pastel blue.
