NFL for the Holidays

Football is one of my favorite things, so it only makes sense for me to consider NFL related gifts for my wish list/gift guide. Even if your team isn’t doing as well as expected (like mine), any loyal fan would love to have some game day gear under the tree. There’s always next season, right?

The best part about NFL gear, is that it is super easy to purchase on NFLshop.com. They have a huge variety of clothing from shirts to sweaters to pants and even dresses. The site is easy to navigate, and there are tons of great options.

I love how there are so many different women’s styles to choose from, and I can dress my game gear up for a fun party, or even wear it as an everyday outfit. (By the way, the sweater I am wearing in the below picture is SO COMFORTABLE. Go buy it. now.)

Personally, I got lucky that my favorite team has the great colors of black and gold. I can dress up my outfit with gold jewelry, and I can wear black pants, a skirt, or jacket to complete my outfit.

Do you have any NFL fan gear under your Christmas tree? If you could pick something, what would it be?

It’s almost Christmas! That means it’s almost time for the PLAYOFFS! Who are you rooting for? Me? I’m still undecided.

My Go-To Look for Game Day

I am a die hard football fan (shocker, I know). I have posted many times in the past about my love for the game, even when my team isn’t doing so well….like right now. But I think that is what makes a TRUE fan right? My parents both grew up in New Orleans, and I was raised in the area as well. As you can very well guess, I am a tried and true, in my blood, New Orleans Saints fan. Oh, we have had some bad years, but that doesn’t stop me from cheering for my boys in black and gold, or from wearing my favorite Saints gear all over town.

Believe it or not, I don’t always wear running clothes and yoga pants, and that is particularly true on game day.

I remember in the not so distant past when women were forced to wear men’s game day gear, or be forced to shop in the kids section (guilty!) Adorable women’s football gear did not exist, but thankfully that isn’t the case anymore! NFLshop.com has a great selection of fan gear, from dressed down, to heading out on the town, to going to a game day party or tailgate. They have a huge stylish women’s selection which I loved browsing through.

Sometimes we watch the game alone at home (I think I embarrass my husband in public with my screaming and ranting), and sometimes we go to a family members home, a party, or a sports bar. We have been on vacation many times and had to seek out the nearest sports bar just so I could watch the game.

Of course, no girl wants to wear the same outfits over and over, so having a closet full of gear to wear no matter the weather or how dressed up or dressed down the occasion is very important. For instance, the year the Saints won the Super bowl everyone wore their game day gear to church. It was hysterical but also so much fun. I of course dressed up my outfit that day! It’s fun to take things up a notch instead of just wearing jeans and a t-shirt on game day. I love to pair a typically dressed-down shirt with a skirt and heels to jazz things up a bit.

Another fun thing to do is to take a more decorative or “statement” shirt, and pair it with jeans and heels. I am all about cute wedges! In New Orleans, bling, glitter, and gold are all very important and can be found on a lot of clothing, so an adorable shirt like the one below doesn’t need something fancy on bottom to take away from it, so skinny jeans work great to dress it down a bit.

I LOVE the laces on the v-neck of the this shirt, it’s so fun and perfect for game day. What, you don’t think I can grill?

We still have a lot more football to play my friends. So what if the Saints are 0-3, we can still come back, right?

September Weekend Happenings

Good morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine had some stressful moments but had some fun ones as well.

Bobby surprised me with a new iPhone 6 on Friday. We were eligible for the upgrade and cheaper price, and with the trade in of my 4s it was free! I have never had the “newest” device so it’s kind of fun.

Since this was potentially our last weekend EVER without a child, (whoa) I wanted to hang out a lot with Bobby, and do some of my favorite things. I worked hard last week to get most of my work done, but ended up with some last minute work that took up a huge chunk of time Friday-Sunday, but we still managed to go on a date on Saturday and I got to watch football.

We went to lunch on Saturday and then Bobby took me to see The Maze Runner. I can’t remember the last time I went to the movies. It was really good! They did a great job. Of course, the book was better (when isn’t it, really?) but I didn’t feel cheated like I do with a lot of other book-to-movies.

Saturday night we watched some football, and after church on Sunday we watched the Saints FINALLY get a win for the season. They still made me nervous, but whew! I was starting to really wonder.

Bella was getting quite skeptical of the Saints, too.

Sunday night I did some cleaning up around the house, and just relaxing watching more football and hanging out with Bobby. I can’t believe very soon things around here are going to be not so quiet!

Oh! I will be closing my baby pool tonight, so get your hunches in if you want to guess! Winner gets a prize!

*For two Fitness (maternity workout apparel) is having a SALE this week, up to 30% off! Be sure to check it out! Their stuff is SO comfy and adorable!

QOTD: Did you read The Maze Runner? Have you seen or do you plan to see the movie? Thoughts? Did your football team win this weekend? I went 1-1 with the Saints and LSU.

A Great Year

 

It’s no secret that I am a huge football fan. Specifically the LSU Tigers and New Orleans Saints. Both my teams lost this week, but we still had an amazing year of football here in Louisiana. We played our hearts out, and I couldn’t be more proud. I have done a few other posts about my beloved teams:

Today my parents, Bobby and I went out to lunch before the big game.

It was fun seeing everyone all decked out in their Saints gear, even all of the employees! Later, my aunt and her friend came over and we all watched the game. Unfortunately, you can’t win a game when you have five turnovers. Such a heartbreaker, I am so sad. I really thought we were going to win. Always next year right? Regardless of the outcome, I am still a always a Saints fan.

The Boys of Fall

 

If you have known me for any length of time, you know I am a huge football fan. More specifically, the “Bayou Bengals” LSU Tigers, and the “WHO DAT” New Orleans Saints. Growing up in South Louisiana, going to many Saints games, it is just in my blood. Through thick and thin, bags covering our heads, to super bowl champs, I love football. On Sunday, my husband knows better than to to try carry on a conversation with me unless it’s in between the late game and the Sunday night game. It is THAT bad. We rush home from church to catch kickoff, and I refused to go to a Super bowl party when the Saints won 2 years ago because I didn’t want anyone to talk to me, so I could focus on the game. Awful, right? I think I was supposed to be a boy. But I don’t like mud. yuck.

Saturday is all about college Game Day and afternoon naps. There is just something about taking a nap with football on in the background. Oh, and There is ALWAYS someone playing you can cheer for (GO SEC!) When I am in Disney world and one of my teams is playing, you bet I will LEAVE whatever park I am in to go watch the game. On our honeymoon, we watched the Saints in the playoffs with Wishes fireworks going on outside our window. Best. night. ever.

You can bet when I pack my suitcase for my upcoming trip it will have Saints Jerseys and LSU t-shirts for game day, and the days after. I find it hilarious that I like football more than my husband, and he played the dang sport for like 10 years! So you can bet when I found this clip from Ellen, that I just HAD to share it with you guys. I have watched it three times and it puts me into hysterical laughing fits every time.

HILARIOUS! I am so excited to see where the Saints will go this year, and how LSU will do missing our starting quarterback, eekk! Doing ok so far! Check out these past posts I have done on the Saints to see how deep my obsession goes:

I promise we are normal…right…

Bobby refers to Drew Brees as my boyfriend. Seriously. He will ask “so what time does your boyfriend play today?” and I know exactly what he means. Smile I did a review on his book Coming Back Stronger also. I wrote more posts about the Saints, but those are the best ones.  Football is one of the reasons I just love fall. Now if only the weather would drop below 90 degrees…

—————————-

Last night Bobby and I had to deal with some personal issues I can’t really talk about, so we were to drained to go to the gym so we took the pups on a nice long walk instead. So what if I am taking it easy this week. I could use a good cut back week.

Tomorrow is the big day! I get so nervous just thinking about it. Saints vs. Vikings, in the dome, my goodness do I wish I could be there! It is going to be AMAZING. See, I have been a Saints fan from day one. Grew up in a suburb of the city, grew up with season tickets, grew up wih the Aints, stuck with them throught he paper bag times, and the recent good times. I. Love. Saints. Football. We have never made it to the superbowl, and I would seriously FLIP OUT if we made it, and won. AAHH! So, be thinking of me tomorrow. I will be yelling at my tv, jumping up and down, pacing around behind the couch, and scaring the dogs so much that Sassy hides in the bedroom.
THE SAINTS ARE COMING BABY!

Does anyone have any predictions? I say Saints by 10. Anyone else?

I shall leave you with these pictures in parting. WHO DAT?!?

coming for YOU Vikings!

on a running note…rest day today…not sure about tomorrow. If the Saints win I may ahve so much energy I run around the block a few times!
