okay... so the game...

was fun!  Did i just SAY that!
Yep... the hubby & I went to the Broncos game... and it WAS fun!
I can't believe it!
I tried to get out of going...
like i always do...
ANY sports event... 
he'd have a much better time with a guy who can "whoop it up" right along side of him... 
SO glad i went!
It was a much needed weekend away and since it was a company outing i got to hang out with some really fun wives... GIRLS... i wasn't the only one! 
Yeah for girl talk & just plain silliness!
And BIG thanks to grandma for watching the chickadees while we were away!

What a great weekend! I am one of those that "whoops it up" right along side him. We have season tickets to the Cleveland Browns -- I only go when it's warm which leaves only the first two months of the season, but I love it. Baseball and basketball too. Cleveland is playing Denver this Thursday. My husband and BIL are going. My 9 year old son and I are going to watch the game together at home. Tuck the girls in early and we'll have a special late school night together. My son and I also go to an away college football game together every year -- just a mother and son weekend. Last year it was Notre Dame, this year it's West Virginia. It's a nice way to spend time together, share in an interest and hey it's never too early to start looking at colleges!

It's great when the outing you think will not be great turns out FAB. Good for you and your hubby to have a get away...you come back feeling so refreshed. fun fun...

Carmen said...

Great pics Carissa! I love going to sporting events. We went to the Bills/Dolphins game a few weeks ago and we had a ball.... and played some ball in the parking lot too!

Christine said...

Too fun! Ahhh, I'm so glad you went. And the pictures amazing. The mojito looks yummmy! The picture of you and the hubby would be a great profile picture. He's very handsome, no wonder why the girls are so adorable; they have too hotties for parents!

I can do a guys things once in a while, I love sports though not all of them but I like to go to games. Hockey is probably my favorite because of the action but its not one I could do all the time!

Here's to an amazing week my friend... filled with HUGE amazing blessings from our BIG God. Continue to Whoop it up!

i always try to get out of it. and jus tthis week something made me feel guilty about not going to a chiefs game earlier this year. but my time didn't include weekend away- i'd be ALL over that!
so you have encouraged me to go next time. even if my ADD will make me crazy. i'll just have another $8 beer right?!

MGF said...

I so have seen that guy before. But I do not think that the barrel man is there any more.
We use to have season tickets before children- but I many went for the tailgating and the people watching. I too cheered every once in a while.

Sarah B. said...

I am one of the guys cheering along the sidelines...My husband is a Chargers fan and I am a Broncos fan which makes it even more fun. I remember my 1st Broncos game...in the cold, slight snow..and there was barrel man in his barrel...I had on a good 4 layers with 2 blankets and he had on a barrel..wow. Great pictures.

Beth said...

Looks like fun......I love your pictures of everything. The one of you and your man is cute. Your hair is getting longer and I got mine cut shorter! I love your bracelet! Fun Fun Night!

Dancing Queen said...

Liz said...

One Wired Woman said...

Oh fun!! You know I'm all about football games!! I live it daily. :) Hi Todd!! ~Jill :)

Sarah said...

My hubby is a soccer coach, so I cannot pass on the whole sporting thing. If you can't beat em, join em! It is fun to see him get so excited....and the whole atmosphere is great!

Don't you love Denver? We just moved here, and I adore the downtown!
