Ok guys, over the past few weeks, "A Perfect Mess" had been boring me. It was starting to feel like a rip-off. Not that I copied anyone on anything, but the inspiration for the title was the Red Hot Chili Peppers song (still an incredible song - if you haven't heard it, go.download.now) and the site "mascot" if you will was Audrey Hepburn. While I still lovelovelove the sentiment of "a perfect mess" and believe that we, and this blog, are all perfect messes, I want this blog to be uniquely mine. Hence - Game Day!
Game Day! is perfect on many levels.
1) Whenever I wake up on football Saturdays (usually around 6am no matter our game time because I'm so excited) I text all my family and friends the words "Game Day!" They get really annoyed because it's way too early and I'm way too excited, but I can't help it - I really really love game days.
2) After waking up and annoying all my friends, I walk around saying "Game Day!" for most the day. The only time this changes is during bowl season (if we're good enough to get to one) and I yell "Bowl Game!" all day.
And, most importantly,
3) Game days are perfect days. I look forward to them all week and savor every moment of them. There is no place I'm happier than tailgating in Craige and watching football in Kenan on a beautiful Chapel Hill day. With this blog, I hope to get a little more of "game day" into every day. Family, friends, food, fashion and football. Perfection. Or...a perfect mess. :)
