This is my 200th post. That's bananas! I really don't have anything exciting planned, just wanted to catch up on all that has been going on these last couple of weeks. Two weekends ago, Kent and I went to the GA vs KY game. I had gotten Kent the tickets for our anniversary. He's a big GA fan and had never been to a game at GA. We've been to a couple of GA vs AU games, just never in Athens. This was also my first time to ever go to Athens. What a great time we had! We got there early and ate at Mellow Mushroom and walked around the shops for a little bit before just sitting in chairs beside our car just talking before we went into the game. The stadium is beautiful! The entire set up is really neat and there is a road that you can walk on that is directly beside the stadium end zone.
We were a little sad before we left since UGA had passed. The mascot is such a vital part of the GA tradition, so they played a little memorial video before the game. The dog house was right below us and had a black wreath on top.
But don't worry, Kent did get to see an English bulldog as we were walking to the game. Of course he had to have his pic made with David Pollock.
And of course I got my history lesson throughout the day on mindless facts about GA. We drove about an hour toward home before we stopped for the night. The next day, we went and ate a The Varsity on our way home. I've seen it on the Travel Channel on the show Hot Dog Paradise. It's very interesting that this small hot dog restaurant can sell and feed to around 10,000 customers a day. We got there right as it was opening so it had not gotten too busy yet. We just had the most popular items-chili dogs.
Even thought GA didn't win, we still had a great time spending the weekend together not at home.
