Happy Monday from the snow globe that is Western Michigan! That picture was taken on Saturday evening. It was literally 70 degrees and sunny on Friday - I had all of the windows open in my house! - and we woke up on Sunday to twenty degree temps and a blizzard. I couldn't even believe it, but that's Michigan for ya.
It was a GREAT day to watch football... on the couch, but instead we headed out to tailgate bright and early. Our alma mater, Western Michigan University, is having a huge year. We are ranked #14 and 11-0 right now. ESPN's College Game Day was in town for our game, so you can imagine that all of our college friends wanted to come back to experience that! If only the weather would have cooperated, but in a way it also kind of added to the crazy day. Besides, my trusty North Face jacket, Sorel boots (on sale!) and beanie kept me quite warm. It was so great to see all of our friends and we can't even wait for WMU's next game on Friday. We're crossing our fingers to continue our undefeated streak and a trip to the Cotton Bowl this year.
Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving?! In a strange turn of events, we are actually staying HOME this year. We're so excited. My family is going to come over in the afternoon, but otherwise we're going to get to stay here and just chill for the whole long weekend, no traveling. It is so very needed. Nick is going to do a turkey in the smoker and I'm in charge of the rest of the food - give me your best Thanksgiving recipe!
