First NFL Football Game

My birthday weekend started off pretty awesome and only got better.

It was filled with some half marathon training, relaxing, and a lot of football!

Phil is a huge NY Giants fan which has made me one by default. The Giants were playing the Packers in the playoffs and with Green Bay only being 2.5 hours away, Phil bought tickets without hesitation. I was so excited when he asked me to join him for the game. This past Sunday was the first time I had ever been to a NFL game!

We made the 2.5 hour drive to Green Bay, enjoyed tailgating, and then headed in to Lambeau Field. To our surprise, there were quite a few Giants fans who had traveled from all over the country to be at the game.

All in all it was an awesome day and I’m so glad that Phil invited me to go. 🙂

Look at all of that blue! Go Giants!

The Giants pulling off a W made the trip even more worth it. It will be exciting to see how the Giants do throughout the rest of the playoffs. As of yesterday, I am calling myself a fan.

Quarter of a Century

This past weekend something happened.

I turned 25, gah!

My birthday was on Friday the 13th this year and I am lucky enough to say that nothing bad happened. In fact, a lot of good things happened.

My friend surprised me at work with these.

Phil showed up at my apartment with these.

Beautiful. I can’t stop looking at them.

Phil took me out to dinner at Sardine where we split a bottle of wine and ate delicious food.

And then we enjoyed a quiet night. Although it was weird to not be out partying with all of my friends like I did last year to bring in my 24th birthday (I miss them!), a quiet night in was exactly what I needed.

Phil and I both turned 25 in the past two weeks and I have high hopes that this will be a very good year, for the both of us. 🙂
