Missing my Hawks

It dawned on me this morning that this is the first year since 2000 (2000!  I was a senior in high school!) that I won't be attending the Iowa football season opener.  #Saddaytobeahawkeye 

Eleven straight years that I've been there, cheering on my beloved Hawkeyes.  Even in last year's monsoon, we were there with smiles on our faces.  Remember that

But not this year. :(

And not because I have a baby!  Believe me, a baby is not going to stop me from doing the things I love, despite suggestions from others! 

The game is in Chi-town and, although, I'd love to go, it means we wouldn't get to spend time with the fam.  We like to kill two birds with one stone.  Especially this year with both new babies.  And the fact that Brantley has not even met his cousin Kellen.  So, instead we'll be there cheering on the hawks and visiting family two weeks from now when they take on UNI.

But that doesn't mean we can't pretend this weekend!  Here's Brantley in his finest black and gold, ready for his first weekend of college football!  (Don't worry hubby, he's going to wear crimson and blue for you today!)
