Darling Friend got his Master of Science in Meteorology from Florida State University. Since we first met, he has always wanted to take me to an FSU game. Always. He bought our tickets on a whim and drove us (without stopping for the night) 16 hours. I don't know how he did it. My wonderful bf got us to tallahassee safely, so we could see his alma mater (GO SEMINOLES!) take on their rivalry Miami. Oh it was a close one!!!! a great game to see live (thx for rooting them on M!!!) and a sweet get-away with my love. I am a believer now, there are no fans like college football fans.
they had an air force flyover at the start of the game which was incredibly touching. Remember the remains discovered last month, belonging to the first American casualty of the Gulf War? Scott Speicher was his name, and he was an alumnus. It was such an incredible moment.
i loved getting decked out in garnet and gold, cheering on the Noles!!!
esp. with my favorite seminole...
on the way home, we had a sleepover at a hotel/casino in Shreveport on the Louisiana Boardwalk. It was a teeny vegas, and though we did not get lucky on a few minutes spent at the slots... i felt lucky in so many other ways.
i love you bf!!! thanks for an amazing trip, an amazing labor day weekend.
you are my favorite date always.
