Last week, my dad presented me, Nate, and my brother Matt with tickets to see the Patriot’s vs. Browns game! (I guess this is proof that working full-time right now, while prepping to teach piano, is keeping me quite busy these days. 🙂 I can’t believe it took me an entire week to blog about this!! Well, I’ll be blogging more regularly once things settle down a bit at the end of December, I promise!).
I love going to Gillette Stadium, just in general, because there are so many shops and restaurants now. I feel as though there’s something new to explore every time I go! But Nate and I are both huge football fans, so it’s especially exciting when we’re there to see a game.
The day promised to be a cold one, and I knew that we’d be sitting outside on plastic seats for hours, so my outfit consisted of:
-one more long-sleeved t-shirt
–one last long-sleeved t-shirt
I was so bundled up that I pretty much couldn’t move, but I also think that I was the warmest person there. And since I absolutely hate being cold, movement was a small thing to sacrifice. 😉
(See, don’t I look warmer than my brother looks? Never underestimate the power of layering…).
Although none of us own a truck, we did our own version of tail-gating by eating a hearty lunch outside before the game. I made a big ol’ batch of chili with all the fixings, and my dad brought chicken wings. Double yum!
Our seats for the game were absolutely spectacular! Nate and I usually end up in the nose-bleed section, but my dad had tickets that were much closer to the action. AND to top off the already incredible day, we won the game! (It was a nail-biter at the end, especially since we all thought that we had lost, for sure). But the Patriots pulled through!
Thanks, Dad, for the tickets! We had a blast!!
