Hail! to the conquering heroes!
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
The leaders and best!
Michigan football.....my husband's
Opening day for Michigan football was this past Saturday. Ironically, I stumbled upon this "pin" that morning...
I laughed out loud, especially because my MIL and I were joking about how I would become a "Football Widow" soon. (Truthfully, baseball season is worse because there are more games.) I joke that I hate football season, but the honest truth is though I don't really enjoy watching the games, I do enjoy spending a lazy Sunday reading/crafting while he watches. If I am being completely honest...I have been known to do a little "pay attention to me" jig in front of the screen if the game goes on too long.
Hey, no one's perfect :)
Well as a supportive beginning-of-the-season wife, I decided to make a Maize and Blue breakfast for my Wolverine.
He was thrilled! Now I joked earlier that Michigan was his first love...but no, sadly Michigan falls to second place...behind
me breakfast foods.
If I ever find myself in a position where, say, I went a little crazy at the mall...breakfast foods would surely smooth the waters. Not that I've tried, you know. :)
So what better way to celebrate opening day than with some awesome french toast?! And with "maize" colored bananas and blueberries! I don't usually like french toast, but this was so yummy. Especially with the fruit!!
