Only a few more hours of the 26th year of my life. Sniff.
We got the last minute invite to join Matt’s dad and his girlfriend, Cheryl, for a Carolina Panthers game. I’m not the biggest sports fan, but I do enjoy going to a game or two every year 🙂
Matt and I took the lightrail up to meet them –
It was a nice day for football!
But we soon realized that with high altitude seats comes low temps!!
Brrrrr! I was in gloves and shivering by the time the sun set!
But I’ll take ROW 26 any day!!!
We started out with his and her beverages – H20 and a brew
The highlight of the game for me was the junior Top Cats that performed at halftime(Certainly not the umpteen interceptions Delhomme threw…)
After halftime Matt and I walked a loop around the stadium to try to warm up.
I got hungry.
I did get hungry though, around 6PM, and snacked on a smuggled snack bar:
After the game we all headed for a quick dinner at The Counter, recommended by us.
I saw they had Cottonwood Pumpkin Ale on draft….so tempting….but I drank so much beer yesterday that I decided to take the night off. Did have some sips of Matt’s though!!
Love The Counter because you can customize a burger any way you like – like in a bowl
I had the veggie burger – which was excellent – with pickles, jalapenos, carrots, jicama, avocado and the dijon balsamic dressing. I cleared my plate – ’twas excellent and the perfect amount of food!
Especially in combo with some delicious sweet potato fries. Had a nice handful of those too –
And a bite of Matt’s turkey burger
Thanks for the fun day Mark + Cheryl!
Once home I cleansed my palate with the Banana’s Foster chocolate that BethT gave me last month. Loved it Beth!
Glad so many of you like the new design!! A HUGE thanks to Jenn for designing 26 (literally!) different headers for me and for all her help with the theme, and to Zest for his assistance providing a test site and helping me with FTP 🙂
If you have any feedback on the organization of the sidebar, please let me know. Also, if you are unable to see the header, please leave a comment with your browser and computer type (small screen, wide screen, dial-up internet) so that I might have some clue what might be causing the image to not show up. Thanks!
I am off to ward off this chill under my down comforter. I’ll be 27 26 in exactly 12 hours at 9:35AM! I’m thinking I’ll just stay 26…..
