UF Tailgate 2015

Monday, October 5, 2015

This past weekend was my company's annual UF tailgate and we had an absolute blast! I've been lucky to attend the tailgate the past 3 years and it truly gets better and better every year. Honestly, I've been raised to always hate the Gators but I love going to the tailgate and helping out. I was so thankful my sister was able to come down and spend the weekend with me and Stephen was able to join us on Saturday after a long day of work on Friday.

Speaking of Stephen working, early on Friday morning he had a rocket launch and it was the perfect time to watch it. As the sun was coming up, you were able to see the solids falling back down to earth and it is the most incredible thing to watch!

Friday evening, I threw a welcome reception in the hotel lobby for the customers and employees that came up to stay in Gainesville Friday night. I loved throwing this little shindig and definitely had to consult Pinterest for some decorating ideas. After, we all headed out for dinner and then over to the Swamp. We didn't last too long since it was so crowded but it was fun!

The tassel garland turned out great ;)

Saturday morning, Stephen made it to town and we all headed over to the tailgate to get ready for everyone. We had such a great time entertaining customers and spending time together. Shockingly, the weather was beautiful and perfect!! We all ended up wearing jeans and we actually felt fantastic, which was totally out of the norm. My sweet friend, Susannah and her husband were going to the game and stopped by to say hi! We loved talking to them and catching up. 

So blessed to have such sweet friends as co-workers

Meridith got to hit the drum

Sunday, we headed back home and did the usual - laundry, grocery store, lawn care and blogging. It was an awesome weekend and can't wait to go back next year!
