Cheers to the weekend!

Sorry for being MIA from the blog for the past week. We'e gone from Labor Day fun, to Louisville for work, straight into a weekend of football fun! Since it's fresh on my mind, I thought I would fill you in on our trip to Blacksburg this weekend.

Since the hubs alma mater was playing VA Tech this weekend, we made the short trip down to Blacksburg for a weekend of football and fun! Our Yankee friends, Jen & Jim, came down from the big apple/jerz to join in the festivities! It was so fun catching up and enjoying a town I've never really had the chance to explore.

We got up bright and early Saturday to get started on our tailgate prep. We kept it pretty simple since it was just the four of us...

Buffalo Chicken Tenders
Pinwheel Pasta Salad
7 Layered Dip
Beer Cheese & Meats from Kentucky
Chocolate Chip Cookies and Bourbon Chocolates 
We enjoyed some Coffee Cake Crumble for breakfast. Then headed down to Blacksburg to enjoy our tailgating and people watching. 

Lane Stadium was really fun! Such a great football atmosphere. The Catamounts put up a good fight, but the Hookies pulled it out. 

After the game we made a stop at Top of the Stairs for a "Rail."

... We even made it out on two feet! Ha

Our next stop in town was a yummy new cupcake shop, Gobble Cakes. I had a chocolate peanut butter cupcake, and Jesse tried a maple brown sugar and bacon cake. So yummy!! 

For dinner we tried a new spot... They had only been open 7 days, so really "new" ha. It was an old fraternity house that they bought and renovated. The atmosphere was laid back and trendy...
And the outdoor patio was perfect for the 70 degree wether we were enjoying! We caught up games and enjoyed amazing burgers, the gobbler for me and the ultimate burger for J...

We crashed early after all the fun in the sun. All in all, a fun lil getaway to Blacksburg with great friends! 

We spent today unpacking, cleaning, and grocery shopping. I finally cleaned the hardwoods and unpacked some new wedding gifts. 

Looking forward to a nice week ahead at home. Happy Fall y'all!
