Super Bowl - Go Packers

The Soil Stud and I went to the greater Dallas area a few weeks ago for the Super Bowl!  We did not attend the game, but Soil Stud and his buddy wanted to be in the atmosphere of the game!  Soil Stud is a huge Green Bay Packers fan, his parent were born and raised in Wisconsin and his dad purchased season tickets in the 60's.  Of course, his family still has those season tickets today!  Soil Stud wouldn't even take me to a game until I took his last name!  We met Soil Stud's friend who now lives in San Antonio.  They are quite a pair!

All men really need is beer and brisket!

 Our first full day was Friday, this is how Dallas greeted us!
Snow on cactus just ain't right!

Thank Heavens I brought my snow boots!
If you squint your eyes really hard, maybe you can see my knitted Green Bay hat.  It was the envy of the town!  (At least that's what the voice inside my head kept telling me.) 
One thing I LOVE about Texas is wherever you go, you always encounter cattle, even if they are statues.  I really, really LOVE cows!
This is me at the NFL Experience!  I think I kind of look like Clay Mathews here (I just need a little longer hair.)  Packer's fans would get the joke!
Now my Indiana peeps, don't fear I'm still a Colt's Fan, Packer's are my #2 team.  I took this pic for my mom.  She loves Peyton Manning probably more than I love my cows.  That's a lot of love, people!

By Saturday and Sunday the sun came out and melted all the snow away.   We went to the JFK memorial.  This is the road where President Kennedy was assassinated.
After the Packers won the Super Bowl, we drove out early the next morning with our bag of goodies! 


  1. FUN! So glad you guys went what a great adventure!

  2. My husband is a huge packers fan as well, he was so excited after the super bowl was over it took him a couple of hours to calm down and go to sleep. I on the other hand cheer for the Bears since I grew up in Northern Indiana. Although we both cheer for the colts since we now live in Indy.
