the silver lining

[i know you have already seen these pictures in this post, but i decided that to show them again for:  a. really liked them so wanted to show them again and b. wanted to document how i still had fun under crappy football playing circumstances]

the holy war was a huge disappointment 
all of Provo is mourning

but i still thought it was a {semi} successful family outing

tips for a {semi} successful family outing include:
-free tickets to the biggest game of the year
-free $30 food coupons from my old concessions boss
which you better believe i used all of it!
costa vida + mint brownies + kettle corn + cougar tail + soda = A GOOD TIME!]
-having a very nice BYU fan spot me 50 cents when I forgot my wallet
-the E man learning to cheer for the right team [BYU]
-really nice people around us that were patient with Elijah’s energy
-also have really nice people share popcorn with your chubby, energetic boy cause he kept whining to them for it…
-meeting Miss United Nations and Eli “petting” her hair & crown
{they thought he was adorable, which of course he is}
-perfect weather
-and spending great, valuable family time together!

of course the {semi} part is obvious:
-BYU playing a horrendously terrible game….
[do you follow me on twitter?? you would’ve seen my commentary]
-having to disown my family during rivalry week since apparently they are avid Ute fans (for reasons unknown…) and having to read all their messages on facebook… ugh!

BUT i still had fun!!

Adam might tell a different story….. but that’s why i write the blog
