I Heart Football!

If you know me at all, you know I really love football. I crave ESPN Game Day, love "ballgame food", tailgating and all the hype around Saturdays in the fall!

Our first year back in Texas, Blake and I knew we had to get season tickets to Baylor football. There was a lot of hype around our QB - RG3, who was supposed to be amazing- but unfortunately he injured his ACL in the home opener...bummer! Oh well, we are still loving Baylor football and so glad Baylor decided to embrace the whole tailgating scene. It has made Saturdays even more fun! So far, we are's to 3 more wins and making a bowl game this year :)

Tailgating before BU vs UConn

Tailgating with my sis before BU vs NW State

And if you didn't know, my parents and grandparents are HUGE OU fans! They have had season tickets since I was a baby. So naturally, this past weekend we all made the trip to Norman to watch the Bears fight the Sooners.

London Times

Last week I was so excited to be able to travel across the big pond to London to visit my sweet friend Kambry! When Brian and Kambry found out that they were going to be transfered to London for 2 years....I immediately started planning my trip to visit. Unfortunately, Blake wasn't able to make this trip with me...he stayed home and worked to pay for me to go...thanks love :) Don't worry, B and I are already planning another trip together for next year!

So...I got to spend 6 fabulous days with one of my best friends in the world in one of the most fabulous cities in the world!

All through college, Kambry was my running buddy...we probably ran a dozen half marathons together. So naturally, we would run together in London...a good 4 miles around Hyde Park and then a yummy breakfast at the Serpantine
Then a fun walk through Notting Hill...and a gorgeous flower shop

And Buckingham Palace...

The next day we made a day trip to Windsor Castle to see where the Queen lives on the weekends...and of course stopped for tea

A trip to London wouldn't be complete without High Tea (at the Worseley) and a show (Wicked!)

The next day, we went on one of the most BEAUTIFUL hikes I have ever been on.... through the Cotswolds. We literally hiked from village to village. A total of 10 gorgeous miles on the English countryside :)

(a stop at the Horse and Groom pub for some refueling)

And on the last day, we strolled through London to see the sights...

I loved every minute of my time in London and can't wait to go back! Thanks for being such amazing hosts, Brian and Kambry!
