Tailgating is a lifestyle.

First of all, I got my first pay check last weekend. And what'd I buy? Workout clothes. An oversize American Apparel t-shirt. Leggings with neon blue zippers up the ankle. Welp, so much for being a grown-up.

Next purchase? It's LC tradition to buy a souvenir from every university you visit. So, what do I want 30 of? (Besides tennis skirts and bathing suits and Tory Burch shoes.)

Option A: I was gonna do charms for my bracelet. 30 charms. Until I realized no one wants to hear jingle bells until the 24-hour window between Christmas Eve and Jesus' birthday. Option A was nixed.

So I moved to Option B: Koozies or Tervis Tumblers. With my already-substantial collection of both, I've recognized two perks:
1. They're not noisy.
2. I'll be tailgating for the rest of my life so this is really quite practical of me.

But which item? Both?
Y'all have any other ideas?

Daddy's requested a t-shirt from each school. He's pretty pumped about his Huskers shirt. Except when I got relocated to University of Georgia for my 1st visit (next week!), my iPhone immediately blows up with this text:

"Hey, by the way---I'll pass on the Georgia t-shirt. Know what I mean?"

WDE to that, Daddy. I shan't be bringing my UGA Tervis to the Stallings family library lawn tailgate. Promise.


  1. Well, especially during football season, you should be able to snag at least a couple of free koozies anyways, so if you're looking for an actual souvenir to purchase, a Tervis isn't a bad idea.

  2. As a Florida girl, I'd go with Tervis. They have a lifetime guarantee!

    Tervis all the way...

  4. Tervis... and I agree with Mr. Rush WDE!

  5. definitely Tervis!

  6. nice blog. it reminds me how great life is in the south, especially with fall coming... go Dawgs!

  7. I think either the charm or the t-shirts are a much better idea. You could have special dedicated charm bracelet just for your LC/ADP years or you take all the t-shirts and have them made into a quilt when you are done. My guess is both of these options will long outlive 30 tervis tumblers (if you can find them) or Koozies.

  8. Sorry to be coming late to this party, but I second DAM. Tervis tumblers and koozies will get scratched/ chipped/ lost and, generally, won't be something you'll want to pull out and show your kids. You may not wear your charm bracelet frequently, but you'll be able to show it off -- and pass it on -- whenever you want to.

  9. I comment when I especially enjoy a post on a website or if
    I have something to contribute to the conversation. It is a result of the fire communicated in the article I browsed.
    And after this post "Tailgating is a lifestyle.". I was excited enough to post a leave a responsea response ;) I do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. Is it just me or does it seem like some of the comments look like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything
    fresh you have to post. Would you make a
    list every one of your public sites like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?
