OSU game weekend

Our weekend was fun and busy. We spent a total of 6 hours in the car just to get to the game and back, but it was worth it because we had a ton of fun and (this sounds horrible, but oh well) it was so nice to be away from the girls for a night.

Saturday morning we left at 6 a.m. and stopped for McDonald's breakfast (Mike's favorite) and then started out on our adventure. We only had one minor mishap in the very beginning, but it was easily fixed and everything turned out fine. I drove for about 2 hours and then Mike drove the last hour so I could change in the car since we were running a little behind schedule and we didn't want to hold up Mark and Kati anymore when we got there. We took a cab from Mark's house to the stadium and got ripped off, but that's a whole different story and no one was too happy about it!

We made it to the stadium and got our tickets and posed for a quick picture, a terrible one of me I might add, but oh well! We ate a little (well Kati and I did) and drank a little (well Mark, Mike and Kati did) and then it was time to go find our seats. It was quite the walk up, but we made it and I have never been so happy to sit!

Me, Mike, Mark, Kati
The game was good. We won, our defense sucks, but we won and Terrell Pryor is going to be awesome! I can't wait until next season when he gets all his freshman nerves out and really becomes great. He was good this week (very impressive) and it was only his second game and he played almost the whole game.

After the game we went to the Varsity Club and met up with a couple of Mark's friends, one of which I had to yell at, but he shouldn't have been talking about me and making it so noticeable. I ate again and then we went back to Mark and Kati's house exhausted. It was a really long day and Mike was asleep by 8 and I was asleep by 9:30, we are party animals. Mike's hat got ruined along with my purse so I will be going online to get a new hat for him for Christmas. I'm not too worried about my purse.

Here is the script Ohio if you're interested:

Sunday we left Columbus about 8:30 and Mike dropped me off at home to get a shower while he went to his mom's to pick up the girls. My grandma's 90th birthday is Wednesday and they were having a get together at my aunt's house for it. I took the girls while Mike stayed home and studied for his finals that are today and tomorrow. It was a pretty good time and I was in bed last night by 10. I don't remember the last time I was that tired and have gone to bed that early two nights in the same weekend.

I hope everyone else enjoyed their weekends and I look forward to reading about them.
