God I love fall weekends. Saturday was another tailgating day – MSU was playing Central Michigan and it was absolutely beautiful out. It was a noon game, so we were up bright and early for tailgating. We had quite the turn out, including two of my best friends Jacquelline and Maurica. The little girl I used to nanny for and her family came up for the game too. They moved about an hour away recently, so it was great to see them all again.
Getting up at 6am took it’s toll and Jacquelline and I hit a wall at about 2pm. Thankfully my parents have a superb tailgating spot that features a cozy little area under a tree that is perfect for napping. We took full advantage of it.
After the game we went home and slept some more. We were rather exhausted. Later that night we went out downtown East Lansing.
Like typical girls, Jacquelline and I tried to get a good “pre going out” picture. Unfortunately, they all ended up like this. Kidd is such a photo bomber.
We went to my favorite bar in the area, P.T. O’Malley’s. It’s actually where Ivan and I met just about 2 years ago. There were a lot of people we knew there, which was fun. Afterwards, we had the munchies and ended up at Georgio’s. If you are from the East Lansing area, I’m sure you’ve had Georgio’s before. They sell gourmet buy the slice pizza and it’s divine. I had a piece of potato pizza and split a slice of tomato/pesto with Jacquelline.
Here’s the last photo of the night. Post our face stuffing pizza session. I have to say, I’m incredibly surprised with how good this pic turned out. It’s probably the best end of the night, 2am drunk photo we’ve ever taken.
Oh, one final note about Saturday night. We took an uber home and when I woke up Sunday morning I checked out my receipt. Unfortunately we were in a surge rate the night before and I ended up paying almost $40 for a $7 ride. I’ll be going back to using local cabs at night. There just aren’t enough drivers in the area to support the demand at 2am in East Lansing. It certainly hurt when I woke up and saw that bill. Never again lol
