It’s FOOTBALL season…

… finally!

It was a long summer, but the happiest of all happy times is finally upon us! Now, you better be ready for tailgate season as well! If you haven’t been planning your tailgate 09 season since last November, here are a few items that are a must:

  • a tent {not a camping tent} but a pavilion tent – you need something to claim your territory
  • lots of beverages of your choice – my choice would be alcohol, but you may pick other things such as soda or juice … I guess
  • even more water than you have other beverages
  • quick and easy snacks for grabby hand – this is only if you haven’t been planning for a few months and have a schedule of events directly related to specific theme days
  • sunscreen
  • a camera
  • a tailgating tv
  • a tailgating Xbox
  • another tent so the girls don’t have to sit with the guys, this is unlovingly called the Kitchen Tent in our circle
  • lots of tailgating chairs – here’s a tip – go ahead and write your name on them – with a marker, please don’t get them monongramed – and just keep them in your trunk – you’ll use them more than you’ll ever know
  • cute shoes, then “walking to the game” shoes – this is a must if you want to walk on Sunday
  • advil and vitamin c, maybe some b12 too
  • handiwipes
  • solo cups in your team colors
  • a marker to write your name on the cups, even though you’ll probably forget where it is
  • koozies for beer
  • a signature drink – I strongly advise sticking one {maybe 2} type of drink per tailgate – maybe it should match the theme of your outfit…
  • mascara, hell your whole bag of make up – you never know when someone’s gonna cry
  • bandaids, in case your cute shoes don’t last – or if you take a tumble
  • toilet paper! you don’t want to use the portapotty and most times its already gone
  • trashbags
  • germex

Well that’s whats in MY tailgate box – you may not use all of these items on the first tailgate but you’ll be prepared to help a fellow fan in distress – but don’t share your toilet paper with the opposing team fans – that’s their own fault!

Happy Tailgating!!!
