A weekend in the steel city!

The coolest spur-of-the-moment thing happened this weekend! About ten minutes after I posted the "I love Football" piece on Friday, I was invited to this weekend's Pittsburgh Steelers v. Detroit Lions preseason game! My husband's aunt & uncle asked us to drive up and join them in a private box for the game - which i've completely totally never done and more than likely will never ever get the opportunity to do again!  His family is so awesome, I will never be able to thank them enough.  I ate great food, picked up some fun Steelers gear for friends, and had a super time visiting with the fam ! My husband and I had to borrow Steelers jerseys from the fam because our closets are full of Patriots gear, but hey - we had to experience the whole deal Steeler-fan style! And now, it's time to share the good time with ya'll!


Hillbilly in the Steel City!

Outside the suite - WHOA... gotta take a photo! ALWAYS w/the thumbs up

I always wondered what it looked like inside the boxes!
LOTS of great drinks and delicious grub!

The Chocolate Banana-bomb and Chocolate Confusion

(As you probably guessed, dessert was my favorite part!)
