Hail to the Redskins - My 1st Football Game | #WeekendRecap


Hail to the Redskins - My 1st Football Game | #WeekendRecapSo my oldest, Hailey & I went up to my sister’s house to hangout for the weekend. We planned on leaving super early on Sunday to head to the Redskins vs. Rams game at FedEx Feild.. So we went up early.  After we got there, I went to the gym with my niece and her friend. Yes, a real gym something besides that thing in the backyard. I surprised myself, since all John put out back was strength – weights and such, apprently I’m a badass.. I did these 3 machines (couldn’t tell you what they were but I did 75lbs on arms, 175lbs on this other arm thing. Then leg pressed 270lbs! Yea, pretty much a beast, haha. Oh and 10 reps each. Not bad, pretty proud of myself. I also did the stairs for the first time, I hate that thing, lol.. I did 5 stories, whatever that means. Also spent 15 minutes on the treadmill at a 3 speed and 6 incline. I can’t run, I wasn’t about to try there. After the gym, we went to Starbucks and her friend went to Safeway to get a chicken, we totally ate that chicken sitting in Starbucks, haha Pretty sure, I got blisters from eating that hot chicken, but it was so good.

Hail to the Redskins - My 1st Football Game | #WeekendRecapAfter we got back to the house, my other niece Julie came over for dinner with her boyfriend, so we got to hangout with her for awhile, I haven’t seen her in forever. So we all chilled while watching that Biggy movie that was on. Played some soccer kick ball in the middle of the parking lot, ooooh it was about 20 sometime outside and that wind was INSANE. At some point we had a late dinner, but it was well worth the wait, it was amazingly delicious. We had some veggies, pears, baked chicken & potatoes. We also made this totally yummy juice. When I say we, I mean my niece made it. Then, I would say.. “This would make a good instagram..” A LOT! So, my sister is all, “Are you going to instagram this, before I cut it?!?!” lmao.. Yea, that happens. Awesome though.. Also snapped a picture of my nephew & Hailey rocking these crowns while watching tv.

Hail to the Redskins - My 1st Football Game | #WeekendRecapAround 130am ish or so, we decided to go to this place in DC to eat, they said it was good.. I mean, why not, I’m an insomniac anyways, I don’t sleep as it is.. Surpisely DC isn’t that far away.. it was pretty dead out for that matter, then again, that wind was nasty.. that could of been why. We went to this place called, Muncheez Mania.. If you’re ever in the Georgetown area, you should check it out. They’re open til 4:30am too! So after eating there we went back home. Just to find out, my niece realized she left her phone there, so we had to go all the way back. haha. We got back around 3:30-4am. I’ll regret it later.

Now being the fact that I went to bed about 4am waking up at 630am wasn’t as nice as one would think it would be. But I was excited, now I already knew the chances of the Washington Redskins winning was slim to none, but hey.. I’m a loyal fan even when they suck.. badly, lol.. I had more fun during the tailgating than I did the actually game, but it is what it is. There’s always next year, lmao.. But at least I was able to knock this off my #30ThingsBefore30 list! That wind we were dealing with on Saturday night was crap Sunday as well. Lighting the grill was insane, but when we finally got it done.. OMG the food was SO GOOD! Grilled Chicken, Ribs, & Steak! Can’t beat it! We also had limited cups, so the OJ in the vodka bottle was pretty awesome.

    I don’t even remember my weekend much…I have no clue what I did. Oh yeah, I did a bit of shopping, but nothing really stood out to me in the stores. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime to get all of my last minute shopping done. I like your weekend much better, and reeeaaallly want a whipped cream-topped Starbucks drink right about now after reading your post. I haven’t tried Pearl Vodka yet, but now I’m curious.

    It’s a great achievement for you to take the 6 incline in the treadmill. I honestly am suffering by the time I reach level 2. Obviously, I need to practice and train more in the gym. The chicken looked good, a nice treat after the workout, I must say!

  • Fi Ní Neachtáin

    Looks like you had a great weekend! It’s great that you’re a loyal fan for your team and you got to see them play. Looks like you enjoyed lots of lovely food this weekend too. When I read that you leg pressed 270lbs I really wanted to go to the gym again, I love the leg press!

  • Alli

    The leg press machine thingy is my favorite because I’m better at it than anything else in the gym. 🙂 Sounds like you had a great weekend with friends, family and food.

  • smfarris

    Georgetown is one of my favorite DC neighborhoods! It looks like you had a great weekend–I’ve always wanted to go to a Redskins game. While I was in Northern Virginia, I kept hoping someone would just offer me an extra ticket!

  • Natalie

    What a wild and crazy weekend–it looks like there was SO much good food involved, which always translates to a great weekend in my book. I’m such an old person, as I can’t tell you the last time I stayed up until midnight, much less until 4 AM! We didn’t do much over the weekend: we traveled home from Disney World on Saturday, and then rested on Sunday.

  • Penny Struebig

    Oh my gosh — I wouldn’t have been able to move after doing that stuff at the gym!! I’m a Rams fan, so I know what you mean about not expecting a win from your team. We love to tailgate also — the OJ directly into the bottle is a great idea. Why waste a glass?!?

  • Pauline C.

    Haha what an awesome weekend that was! For one thing, I agree about supporting your team no matter what. I enjoy sports with or without the win. My week’s not busy as yours. Just had a relaxing evening at home.

  • Lenze

    Glad you had a great weekend.Looks like a great day with great food (Muncheez Mania looks like an awesome place to grab a bite to eat) and stayed up all night to have a good time. It’s good to be young. Enjoy!

  • Sara-Jayne

    Wow. You have a LIFE! I love it! I hate the stairs machine too – I’m awful at it. I’d love to see a game – in England sporting events aren’t quite the same and generally lead to fighting!!!

  • Lauren

    Your weekend looks like it was so much fun! I’ve never been to an nfl game, but I’ve always wanted to! I live fairly close to Cowboys stadium, so I need to go down there for a game! The food also looks delicious!

    • Natalie

      Yes, you should… I wanted to go to the Redskins v Cowboys game in DC, I should of gotten tickets when they were like $30 for the cheap tickets, now they’re like $100+ haha and that’s for a STANDING area, no seats, lol

  • Michelle Hwee

    Wow, what an amazing weekend you had! So many different things you did and the great food too! I have never been to a football game before but that looks like such a different experience than going to a baseball game. What caught my eye are your starbucks drinks and the food! Makes me hungry just looking at it! Wowsa! Great weekend though 🙂
