It’s something we look forward to every year and something my husband and Big Perm’s Tiger Tailgate take seriously. TAILGATING! For some reason, we love it and our weekends from September to December are already planned as soon as LSU’s football schedule is released every year. And since Jon’s brother Jeremi passed away 3 1/2 years ago, our tailgating crew has become an actual organized LLC. I’m so happy to be a part of this wonderful group of friends, dedicated to a great guy that we all lost too soon.
Jon and I met on LSU’s campus tailgating in 2003. It was a brief introduction, but one neither of us will ever forget – LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!!! We talk about it often and laugh about what we thought of each other that day. Thank goodness for Helen!! She was our mutual friend and made sure we saw each other again. The rest is, of course, history. Almost 7 years of tailgating with this guy
Since the first 2 LSU games this year are away, our tailgate crew got as many together as we could and “tailgated” at our houses.
LSU vs. North Carolina
Marielle LOVED Cam, she was loving on him and and playing with him all night!! I wish I would have taken more pictures that night, but I put my camera down and forgot about it. It’s hard to keep track of 2 kids at someone else’s house. That’s why we decided to host for the Vandy game.
LSU vs. Vanderbilt (our house)
Marielle was all over the boys! She was wild towards the end of the night. I couldn’t believe she lasted so long, but she was pretty good and didn’t have a real breakdown. We were hoping since she was up late that maybe she would sleep later, but no such luck. She was up at 8:30, which isn’t real early, but we were hoping to be able to lay around a little longer on Sunday.
Now the real tailgates start – we can’t wait for next weekend to get on campus and have a real tailgate under the Oaks!
