Girl's Only

I spent yesterday at the Big House, that is Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbour, MI enjoying the season opener for the Wolverines. They played against Western Michigan and the game, although a bit of a blow out was nothing short of exciting!

This is the view of the student section from our seats.

This was the first time in many years that I went to a Michigan game a) without my husband, and b) with just girls! Tailgating was a little more reserved for sure. Less BBQ'ing and more lounging. Less drinking all around, but that's just because we ran out of time really, not because we didn't have enough booze. (On a side note, I was carded at the convenience store while we were buying the booze! Pretty exciting for a 30 year-old. I do think everyone in the store thought I was a little crazy for being so excited, but that might have been because they were all 17 year-old freshmen praying NOT to get carded!) When we arrived at the stadium making it to our seats for kickoff was not a priority, however going to the all women's clothing store located inside the stadium was. A bathroom break is also a priority when the trip involves all girls. However, due to the fact that we only had 2 Victor's Club passes we could not go to the bathroom in Chrysler Arena in a group as girls are likely to do when out together.

All in all the trip was great. Lots of boy-watching, a great game, and dinner at Gar's Bar on the way home! I am already looking forward to my second game of the season in October versus Penn State. That game will involve tailgating with 3 boys- so a lot more BBQ, beer, football and no boy-watching! But it'll still be a great time. And who knows how many games will be won by the Wolverines between now and then. If the season opener was any indication it's going to be a season to remember.
