If you're new around here, you may be surprised to learn that I'm a BIG college football fan. Believe it or not, I wait with baited breath for the first Saturday in September when my favorite tv show, College Game Day, re-ups. Over the course of the past 12 years, Fall and college football have become synonymous for me. But trust me, no one was more surprised than my college girlfriends – I went to the University of Michigan, and while I bleed maize and blue, I did not catch football fever there.
See, I married into this thing called #SoonerNation. To be honest, I initially resisted getting caught up in the frenzy. I'm happy to report that 12 years in, I'm a raving OU football fan who travels across the country for games and searches the internet to find cute OU gear. The thing about life is that if you let go of how you thought it was going to be and embrace what it is, life can be pretty damn good!
