To me, the only negative of football season is limited time with family. In return, coaches get more time in the summer with their families which is great! We get to head to the beach and enjoy the sun. However, fall has its fun too! There are fairs, pumpkin patches, and apple picking. My coconut and I do these activities with other football spouses because they can relate. Plus, the women are seriously awesome.
One of the hardest parts of football season for me is missing wedding season. If I didn't have a child it might be a little easier. Coach is never available for fall weddings which means I'm not. Traveling and attending weddings alone with a toddler is nearly impossible...like 99%. If the wedding are not child friendly then it is 100% impossible. I have no one to watch my coconut. It's one of the sacrifices of being a football wife, and explaining the situation to friends can be difficult. To my friends: I love you guys! I really do try to find a way to make it!
I really want to head to the AFCWA (American Football Coaches Wives Association) conference that happens to be at the same time and place as the AFCA (American Football Coaches Association). This year it's going to be in Nashville. I wanna go!!!
I will be sure to post my favorite game-time and fall recipes throughout the season! In the meantime, check out my Buffalo Chicken Dip for a kicked-up a notch (sorry Emeril) appetizer perfect for football season!
