Tailgate Shower

As most of you that live in Iowa know, this past weekend a very important football game was played, well important to those of us that live in Iowa.  The Iowa/Iowa State game took place on Saturday afternoon and, as always, was an exciting event, no matter the score.  This game has always been especially exciting for Kevin and I because he is an Iowa State fan and I an Iowa fan.  It was not my year this year, as Kevin's Cyclones beat my Hawkeyes in a pretty uneventful game.  The upside to the Hawkeye loss was that I had lots of Hawkeye friends surrounding me.  

Two of my friends, Shelby and Jill, planned a tailgate shower for some of our local friends to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Baby Boy Forristall.  It was such a fun and cute shower and it gave some of the boys a chance to celebrate with us.  Shelby and her fiance, Jeff, cooked up some great shredded pork sandwiches complete with grilled buns, along with mac and cheese cupcakes, and chips and queso dip.  Everything was delicious and before the game got underway, Shelby and Jill had everyone make little onesies with iron-on decals and fabric markers.  Everyone was quite creative and now we have some fun little onesies that Baby Boy Forristall can sport this fall and winter.  The shower was such a clever idea and so much fun, despite the Hawk loss.  There's always next year...I think we might make this Iowa/Iowa State tailgate an annual event.
