Rainy Weekend Recap

Sunday, October 4, 2015

We had been looking forward to this past weekend for a while. Fun fact: Clemson had not played Notre Dame since 1977 and this game happened to fall on the 1,977th week. What a coincidence. 

Anyway, we are into our 5th week (4th game for Clemson since we had a bye week) of college football. Playing number 6th ranked Notre Dame was going to be a challenge for my 12th ranked team, Clemson. I'm not going to lie, I've been kind of nervous about it all week! 

When hurricane Joaquin decided to make his/her? way down south, we were told to expect anywhere from 2"-18" of rain. Hard rain. Rough winds. Did we ever second guess if we were going to skip the game due to a little bit of rain? Absolutely not. We might be a little crazy but we weren't going to miss the big game. 

Our plan slightly changed Friday night when we were told that our tailgate lot that we park in (that has assigned spots) was no longer assigned and was first come first serve. When Clemson eliminated a couple of hundred spots due to the rain and drainage, we knew that we needed to get there earlier than we had planned so we could get our three spots together. 

Because we claimed our spots early, we were able to walk to Bowman to catch the end of Game Day! This was the first Game Day I've been to since being in college, so it was a bit nostalgic.

No heater to keep warm? That's okay. A boiling pot of low country boil will do the trick. 

Speaking of low country boil, yum! 

How cute are these two…twinsies! Yes, those are waterproof pants. Smart boys.

Our personalized tailgate cups that Caroline and I designed a few seasons back. Oh, and we were lucky enough to FaceTime with her and Lucie at the game! 

Flowers make everything better. Especially orange and purple flowers to coordinate with your table scape. 

The most delicious tailgate cookies everrrrr. 

Oh, did I mention that Clemson won?! It was a total nail biter towards the end of the game, but we came out with a W in the end so that's all that matters. It was a great game and we were all great sports and totally embraced the weather and actually had a fabulous time despite all of the mud, cold and rain. 

Cheers to being in the top 10!! 

I was supposed to drive to Columbia for my sister's bridal shower but they ended up having to cancel and reschedule it because of the hurricane. My hometown is in a state of emergency and has totally flooded part of the town. Interstates are shut down and at least 3 people have died. So, so sad. Please keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers!

Linking up with Biana for Weekending! 


  1. We watched the game on tv and it was definitely a nail biter at the end! The weather was crazy and I was actually wondering if you guys had made it out to watch. Looks like you had a great time though!

  2. You guys are seriously the best fans - I would not want to be in the rain all day and then watch the game too! I caught a little bit of it on tv and couldn't believe how much rain was coming down!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I am so jealous that y'all were able to go! I'll be annoyed with Joaquin about this one for quite some time. Hope to see y'all Saturday for GT!

  4. I saw the end of the game on TV and it was definitely a nail biter. You are a good fan to have braved the storm! I love my Tar Heels, but I don't think I could have stood the rain. Y'alls tailgate spread is incredible and I'd kill for some low country boil right now. So good!

  5. Looks like yall still had a wonderful time!! Glad you were able to brave the rain and have so much fun! The low country boil is making my mouth water :)

  6. You are dedicated fans!! I don't know if I could have still gone i nthe rain! haha
