Game Day

In our house from early September through late December, Sundays {and the occasional Monday & Thursday} are considered “holy”. And not because we’re particularly religious people, but because it’s “football day” according to my husband, and the Giant’s are just about as holy as he gets. Oddly enough, I actually really enjoy watching the game! I was an athlete in high school, workout pretty regularly now, and overall really enjoy the sportsmanship of it all -and well-built men in tight football pants isn’t the worst thing to look at! The crisp Fall air, our traditional tailgate {which includes a multiple-course Italian Sunday lunch that would make my Nonna proud}, and the rush from the game, makes for a perfect day!

And while I may not know every play in the book, I like to consider myself somewhat of an expert on what to wear to a game. The weather can be a bit unpredictable, with warm afternoon tailgates and brisk end of game temps, so layers – in the form of my favorite t-shirt, plaid button down & quilted vest  {love these more affordable alternatives here & here too!} – are an absolute must! Like many other stadiums, there is a very restrictive bag policy, and this little guy just makes the size requirement. I’ve also learned my lesson to wear comfy boots that can easily be hosed down – we are cooking in a parking lot after all!

Do you have any Fall traditions? I fell in love with football a few years ago and am totally hooked!
