Football Time in Tennessee

Happy Saturday!! How’s your day going so far?

I woke up around 7:30 this morning and powered up with cup of coffee #1. I headed to the gym to teach my first step class in 2, maybe even 3 years. Luckily for me, another instructor was able to teach at the last minute – so I gladly attended the class as a participant instead of the instructor- it was fun – maybe I’ll even have to think about starting to teach step again occasionally.

After class, I had a nice breakfast outside at Starbucks – the weather is amazing here today, there was still a bit of a chill in the air as I enjoyed my banana-walnut bread and Pike’s Place brew (cup of coffee #2)….


Then, I went shoe shopping! I took advantage of the fact that most of Knoxville was either at Neyland stadium or in front of their TVs for the first football game of the year…so, the shopping areas were pretty empty. I may have told you before…I’m a horrible shopper – meaning, I don’t really enjoy shopping, I’m super impatient,  and I usually can’t find clothes that I like, so I often go shopping and come home empty-handed. Today, I did great! I scored a great new pair of New Balance running shoes and some nice dressier shoes for work.

When I got home, lunch was leftovers from last night’s Drunken Noodles – seriously, the. best. meal. ever…even as leftovers. This photo totally doesn’t do it justice.


And, after being so busy for the last few weekends, we are so excited to have a day at home…Football on the couch. (I’m not even a big football fan), but this is a new era in Tennessee Football…new head coach Lane Kiffin….


And, even I was excited when TN scored 4 touchdowns in the 2nd quarter!


So, at halftime – it’s 28 – 0 – TENNESSEE – Go Vols!

Hope you’re having a great Saturday!

  1. Take-out leftovers are so much better the next day! I think it might be the deepening of the flavors? Anyway, sooo good!

    The weather here has been great, too. It definitely feels like fall, and I am so excited since fall is my favorite season.

    The internship is going really well, and I’ve really enjoyed my time so far in the hospital.

  2. I love your description of the “drunken” noodles 🙂

  3. Drunken noodles are my faaave Thai dish (ok, well ONE of my faves 😉 ) Hope you enjoy the game!


  4. is it just me or do those drunken noodles just keep looking better and better? Glad you got some new kicks! Have a wonderful time at the game 🙂

  5. I am in love with college football. How exciting, a new coach! We haven’t had a new coach for about 6 years now…I think.

    The drunken noodles look amazing, even if it’s not the best pic. I can tell they are possibly addictive!! I had wings tonight, that was my pleasure food!

  6. I’m with you on the shopping! I get exhausted really quickly. The drunken noodles look so good!

    I wish I wasn’t such a good shopper, lol! I did some serious damage in Victoria’s Secret yesterday. But I definitely can’t shop with other people…it’s weird, but I like to shop alone (guess I can concentrate better that way, ha!)
