“Well this is the year
And the Cubs are real
So come on down to Wrigley Field
Go, Cubs, Go!
Go, Cubs Go!
Hey, Chicago, what do you say?
The Cubs are gonna win today”
Go Cubs Go // Steve Goodman
1-2) Bethany and I went to Old Navy to get a present for Chelsea’s baby shower (see below) and we found the Christmas pajamas…soooo of course we put them on and took mirror selfies haha
3-6) We got to go to OSU’s walkaround on Friday night for homecoming :) It was our first time to be there for walkaround since 2013 and we loved getting to be there! Go Pokes!
7-8) We ordered Lou Malnati’s pizza from Chicago in honor of the World Series, so we enjoyed it before going to watch game 4…which was a doozy. Also, check out my lucky socks with sandals #coolkid
17-18) After the shower, Colin and I took Bozeman out to the Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge to go for a walk. It was just the relaxing we needed after a crazy-long weekend and a crazier week!
19) Cubs won game 5 which kept us going in the World Series. Here’s a photo of the W flag flying in the window at Blake and Brian’s house haha
20) Our friend, Mirinda, threw a Halloween party and she asked for me to make the food creepy…this was the best I could do haha
21-22) Colin was Harry Potter (he already had the costume), I was Rey, and Bozeman was BB8 (because he’s orange and white haha) for Halloween :) So fun!
23-24) We also won game 6!!!! It was a crazy game that went really really well for the Cubs
25-32) and of course, WE WON THE WORLD SERIES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 108 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was the single longest and most stressful game of sports I have ever witnessed, but oh my gosh was it worth it! In the 8th inning, when the Indian’s scored to tie with us, the satellite feed went out at Skinny Slims, and the rain started pouring down. We all crammed inside and crowded around cell phones to keep up with what happened until the feed finally came back. The game went into a 10th inning, but then there was a rain delay for 15 minutes. The first half of inning 10 went great for us, but the Indians still had a chance for the second half. For the bottom of the 10th, we all went back outside in the pouring rain to be in our usual spots. Indians scored one point, meaning they were one point away from tying us again and adding another inning. But then, finally, we got them out. I started crying immediately. Everyone was screaming, jumping on top of each other, hugging, and basically freaking out! Dustin, the bartender at Skinny Slims (who is a huge Cubs fan) ran outside with his arms full of champagne bottles and everyone started shaking them up and spraying them everywhere. We were already soaking wet from the rain, but the champagne gave us a whole other layer haha. I think we all sang “Go Cubs Go” about 20 times, and each time was more enthusiastic than the last. We signed the W flag at Skinnys, took lots of photos and video, and eventually made our way home to relive the excitement through the video clips and news stories. It was a night I will NEVER forget. If you want a taste of how we looked/felt, check out this video Brian shared with me.
Also, just in case you think the expressions on Colin’s and my faces are alcohol based, they definitely are not. I think Colin had two drinks and I had zero. That is pure adrenaline and emotion! Haha
Oh man, this weekend we have Friendsgiving and a photoshoot (as if this week hadn’t been crazy enough)! I hope your weekend is refreshing and lovely, friend.
