On Marriage & Football

Freshman Year - Fall 2006

As we head in to fall, I'm looking forward to normal setting in. I always feel like summer is a chaotic time for me. This summer, we moved. Which added an entirely new set of trials, tribulations and tales to the season.

I love summer. I really do.

But fall is when my life gets organized. So many wonderful things have happened to me during the Fall. It's hard to not associate all of those memories with the season. I'm a little more laid back (probably because I'm finally not sweating like crazy.)

Sophomore Year - Spring 2008

And there's football on the TV. Which, according to sitcoms, is supposed to drive a wedge between a husband and wife. Luckily for us, that's not the case at all. Football season gives us a chance to bond. We create detailed menus, throw football watching parties. We talk each week about what's coming up. (I ask C explain a few things to me here & there...)

College football is something we bonded over during our first Aggie game together, when we were Freshman back in 2006. Stealing a kiss at Midnight Yell, and celebrating every first down when the Aggies were down just a bit.

We've rushed the field after an incredible victory. Hidden under the stands when a giant storm blew in and the game was postponed an hour. We've followed games on our phones during our friend's wedding ceremonies. (We even had a pastor bee-line it for us after ceremony to ask the score, because he knew we'd know.) We've camped out in front of the ticket office in order to get better seats for the Thanksgiving game vs. t.u. (That's the University of Texas for you non-football/non-Aggies)

Fall 2010, after we beat Nebraska & stormed the field ♥

Sadly, our game tonight was postponed due to Hurrican Isaac. But that's not stopping us from watching football! Oh, no sir! We'll find ourselves somewhere, beer in hand, excited about the next few months.

Saturdays are now for Football, and making our marriage just a bit stronger. ♥


  1. You two are so cute!! I love football season!!

  2. That's pretty much how I feel about football season as well! And I can't wait for A&M to start playing t.u. again! Thanksgiving won't be the same without the game this year. :(

  3. You guys are adorable! Love that you found something that brings you closer together. I feel the same way with me and my bf, but we watch NFL. In fact, I joined an all-girls fantasy league just so I would be more interested in the games, and it definitely worked!

  4. How cute! I'm not a huge sports fan, but KB and I both went to UNC so I guess if we're anything we're basketball married!
