A Weekend to Remember

Well, if you follow me on any of my social media outlets (or have read my recent posts), you'll know that this past weekend was the Texas A&M vs. Alabama football game here in College Station. You'll also know that I'm way too in love with football to even shut up about it for longer than five minutes. We may not have won the football game, but boy, did I have a fun weekend!

It started off with Curt's parents coming down to celebrate his birthday on Friday. We went "tent sale" shopping for some new Aggie gear, ate out at a local BBQ restaurant, opened presents, and had delicious homemade chocolate cake. We then made our way over to Midnight Yell (click the link if you wanna know more about my school's awesome tradition), where we stood outside Kyle Field.. trying to figure out why on earth we couldn't get into the stadium, with about 4000 other people, mind you. We finally made it in, only to realize that 40,000 other people had somehow beat us inside. Basically, 45,000-50,000 Aggies showed up for this, something I have honestly never ever seen at Midnight Yell. It was crazy, the air was so electric, we were all so pumped up for the biggest game in A&M history. Gosh, I love this school. 


The next morning, we woke up and headed over to campus to check out College Gameday, hosted by ESPN. We were all pretty exhausted from the night before, but ready to have some fun! We saw some famous Aggies, Gene Stallings and RC Slocum, who Curt's dad and uncle about fainted over when we realized who we were all standing near. It was pretty hilarious. Our backs even made national television! Hah. It was a cool experience, although, Gameday hasn't brought us any luck, so if they could just not come next year.. that'd be great, lol. Just joking!


We went back home to eat lunch and pick up the rest of the crew before the game began, and I decided to leave my camera at home. I knew I'd be jumping around and yelling at the top of my lungs while surrounded by a billion other people, so I didn't want to worry about my camera getting trampled. But, I still took pictures with my iPhone, of course. The game itself was absolutely crazy. The emotion in the stadium when our team came out of the tunnel was off the charts, and even though it was hot, we yelled our hearts out. During this play, everyone went absolutely positively BERZERK. You can actually hear it in the video. I mean, Curtis literally threw me in the air! Even though we lost, our team fought to the bitter, bitter end, and it was one heck of a ride. My absolute favorite game at Kyle Field ever, and there have been some really good ones. 

All-in-all, it was a fantastic weekend. Wish we coulda won, but we came dang close! I love my Ags, and am so incredibly proud to be a Fightin' Texas Aggie. It all went by in a blur, but that just makes me appreciate the moments even more. Not everyone gets to experience these things, and I'm so blessed to be apart of such an amazing university here at A&M. Hope you guys enjoyed my little football rant.. Have an awesome Monday!

  2. Oh my gosh - that game was crazy!!! We only planned on watching some of it, but we got totally hooked and finished the whole thing. I was really rooting for A&M... my husband went to Arkansas for college so we are ready for a new SEC leader. Ahhh A&M played so well!

  3. You are hilarious! I wish I was as passionate about something the way you and Curtis are! Glad you had such a good weekend :D
