Fiesta Anyone?

I know, I know I haven't even written about our Christmas or New Years festivities but I plan to.

Now onto the Fiesta....

2 hours in the car to get there

$30 for parking

$8.50 for a personal size pizza

$8.50 for 3 chicken strips & fries

$4 each for a small Coke - no lid, no straw

Put these together and what do you get?......

Oh Ya it's the Fiesta Bowl!


Thanks to an awesome SIL Jessica, Eric and I along with his brother Brent and his wife Jessica partied like it was the collage days.


Ok, See that little circle?..... that's the hottie of a Texas Fan Matthew Mcconaughey!


So Texas has a dramatic last minute win, making for a great bowl game. Now it's off to see if we can find our car in the sea of thousands of vehicles UOP Stadium tries to pass off as a parking lot.... I like to refer to it as a Rat Trap! They lure you in to this one way in/one way out trap with their fancy games, charge you $30 and pack you in like sardines. The parking lot is striped with parking spots but they devised a brilliant plan by having everyone park perpendicular, thus making lots more money. And then for the topper, the nice people who so kindly guided us into our make-shift spots are now gone! We had heard rumors of others attending events at UOP Stadium having to wait 2 hours to get out of the parking lot. But of course that would never happen to us! ...... Ok well it sure as heck would have if my genius of a husband didn't believe we were in our suburban. Lets just say, after waiting 45min in one of the 7 lines that then merge into one, with out moving an inch Eric sees a few other "trucks" and "SUV's" taking an alternate route which involved a ditch with gravel and a curb. Did I mention we were in our Camry?


So this is Eric and Brent pushing the Camry up over the curb. I was dying laughing! But in all fairness this little incident did get us all home a lot earlier.
