Tailgating Time...Let's GO Hokies!

Well, as much as I hate to say goodbye to summer, my consolation prize is to say HELLO to college football season! I am definitely one of those girls who enjoys to cheer on her team. Going to football games is one of my husband and my "things" and being a dual alma mater household, we are already gearing up for a fall season of road trips.

When I was touring colleges nearly 15 years ago (yikes!) one of the major items on my checklist was school spirit. The second I stepped onto the campus at Virginia Tech, I knew it was "the one" for me. I just knew it...and I was right. Once a Hokie, always a Hokie.

VT gave me an amazing 4 years complete with friendships that will always be maintained. I have been back every single year for at least one game with those friends and hope that will remain the case. We're heading down to Blacksburg tomorrow for opening day and of course I had to make a few Virginia Tech cookies to share at tailgates.

Can't wait to hear "Enter Sandman" blare on the speakers in Lane Stadium. (Even my Penn State loving husband gets a huge kick out of that!)

We'll check out our team this year and hope that our QB can lead us all the way to New Orleans in January.

And if we're lucky, maybe we'll even get a tailgating picture with the Hokie Bird!


Happy football season everyone!


  1. Adorable! Kevin loved these. He saw them before I did and called me to the computer to sew them! And after I tried my own hand at making making these, I am so much in awe of your talent. Kevin would like to tailgate with you for a Penn state game!

  2. These are AMAZING! I might be all Wolfpack, but this makes me want to tailgate with you Hokies!

  3. AMY--Not only were the cookies BEAUTIFUL they were also YUMMY :) We had a great time tailgating with you on Saturday! Can't wait to do it again soon! XOXO, Camie
