wildcats & wolverines, oh my!

11 Oct

last saturday we kicked off the northwestern vs. michigan football game with brunch in evanston, a campus tour, and an alumni tailgate. i absolutely fell in love with northwestern’s campus & the scenery of a night game at ryan field.

here’s some highlights from the day!

{2 hotdogs & 4 beers later, ready for kickoff!}

{oh man! night game! loving our seats}

in the end, the wolverines came out undefeated, which kept this girl happy. we’re already planning our 2012 nwu vs u of m match-up road trip to the big house. then it’s my turn to lead the campus tour and tailgating!

thanks to the wildcat kids for showing us the ropes and a FABULOUS time!
