Tailgating has never been a big part of my life as I went to an all-girls high school and a very small college where sports weren’t a huge priority. My husband is always so confused as to what I did with my college experience if I wasn’t out cheering on the teams and going to tailgates and after parties. I’m finally beginning to see the hype of it all and it makes me happy to be able to partake in things that my hubby enjoys. One time he put it in perspective and said, “It would be like me going out thrifting with you all day and actually enjoying myself!” At that point, it clicked for me. I had been missing out on spending some good quality time with family and friends without even realizing it. I decided to redeem myself by planning and hosting my very first tailgate.
