Guess who is going bowling?

Christmas is coming early for me in the form of tickets to the Las Vegas Bowl. The lovely Fed Ex man made the delivery today. Actually I didn't see him in person, so I can't really speak to his loveliness, but still anyone who makes my dreams come true must be lovely, right?
I will be able to watch my favorite Cougars play against the Beavers. What kind of a mascot is a beaver anyway? I am sure a Cougar can take a Beaver any day.
Anywho, I was debating back and forth about whether I valued financial freedom and warmth over the adrenaline rush of attending the game in person. A little persuading from my son, Trent swayed me to take the plunge. He looked at me with his chocolate brown eyes, that I find hard to resist, and pled with me that it was his last chance to attend a bowl game before his mission. Seriously, who could resist that argument. Especially when deep deep down, I was dying to go myself.
I got my tickets off of stub hub and hopefully they are not counterfeit or anything like that. So just one week from today I will be freezing my hiney off whilst cheering my lungs out. I can hardly wait.
I thought it fitting that I post a few pictures of some of my favorite BYU things. Of course we don't want this post to turn into an epic novel, so I had to restrain myself.

Here I am bundled in my BYU fleece blanket. Oh how I love this blanket and take it proudly to church each week to help keep me warm. So cozy.

And what about my infamous blue fuzzy slippers. You gotta love something so blue and so warm. And remember how much they helped me through Jared's hip replacement hospital stay? These puppies have seen me through some rough times. They totally rock.

And last, but by no means least, my BYU pez dispenser. My sister Amie, saw this and knew that I HAD to have it. How coolio is that? Seriously. Would it not have been so much funnier in the Seinfeld pez episode if it had been a BYU football instead of a yellow duck? You have to adore a yummy candy dispenser in the form of a BYU football. Nuff said.

I knew you'd be going. Seriously-heard about the Vegas game and though to myself, "I'm sure NHC will have fun there."
