What a fun game today – lots of extra stuff since it was also homecoming today, and the weather actually turned out pretty well. We had no rain at all – it was just overcast and a little windy. Perfect for football watching.


Right before we went into the stadium, I had half a small roast beef sandwich on wheat and shared the rest with Nick. I ended up never having a real lunch, but it was okay.

Nick got these crazy nachos in the game –



I ended up eating one of my chocolate Amazing Grass bars during halftime, and it was the perfect snack.


The score at halftime! Woo!


Coach Beamer!


Coach Foster!

We had some great seats today, and it was just a fun game all around. The Hokies also presented a check to Mark Herzlich, the ACC Defensive Player of the year from 2008 with a check of money they raised for him and his fight with cancer. What a cool moment.

Final score: 48 – Hokies, 14 – Eagles.

We took the long walk back to the car, ran to Kroger to get the rest of the groceries, and came home to eat a quick dinner.


I made a quick pasta dish with:

  • mushrooms
  • lean turkey sausage
  • crushed and diced tomatoes
  • Italian seasoning
  • garlic powder
  • crushed red pepper
  • whole wheat pasta
  • 1/4 cup of so ricotta stirred in with everything at the end

We each had some pasta and a side salad.


Mmm…ranch dressing.

I also just had these 2 truffles from my favorite chocolate shop, The Chocolate Spike.


1 caramel apple truffle and 1/2 a pumpkin spice truffle!


Look at the caramel just oozing out – they were good.


Now we’re off to have some dessert (?) and play some games with some couples from church. Don’t know when we’ll be back!


Hope you’re enjoying your Saturday  :)
