Weekend (Warning - Picture Overload)

Friday night, Sean and I went out for Trivia night. We hadn't gone in a while and I was looking forward to it. To be honest, I was just looking forward to the cheese fries and Philly steak cheese sandwich. The food is dirt cheap but so good!

This was a different experience because we actually won for the first time! We won a pitcher of beer (ewww for me, yay for the others) and a $25 gift card to use for the next time we go. I will be using it for more cheese fries.

Saturday was a game day. Sean's team completely killed it. The score was 144-6.

After Sean's rugby banquet, I was designated the rugby photographer. My days of sitting in the car and cheering are over. OK, I'll be honest. I wasn't really cheering. I was listening to Lil Wayne and pretending that I could rap.

Sean is in charge of making sure that all the equipment is at the field before the game begins. Since we got there early Sean asked to take pictures of me holding the rugby ball. At first, I was so surprised that I asked him, "what do you want?" He said, "do you want me to take pictures or not?" I got the pictures.

Y'all are probably wondering why Sean is not playing. He busted his knee at his last game and his orthopedic advised him to stay off of it for 3 weeks. You would think that his doctor told him that he couldn't play for the rest of his life.

Saturday evening, I was invited to a Syracuse game party. Colleen is from Syracuse so she is a the biggest fan. It was also her birthday so we were hoping that meant that Syracuse would win. Unfortunately, they didn't. Good thing I had wine.

Sunday was church, lots of deep cleaning (due to the fact that while I was sick deep cleaning was on the back burner) and Netflix watching.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Are any of those rugby boys single, haha!!?! ;)

Yay for being the game photographer and model...poor Lil Wayne, though, I'm sure he'll miss your duet!

Have a great week, Faith!

Katie said...

You are the perfect designated photographer. Great photos!!

Love trivia night. Derek and I always lose so that's awesome that you won!!

Christina Marie Kellogg said...

LOL at the conversation you and your DH had about him taking your pictures! Maybe it's a sign...he's coming around. :D

I haven't had cheese fries like that in a long time! There's a restaurant that we go to here, and we order them but, they put the sauce in a little cup for dipping. Either way, they're good!

You look great! I especially like the first few photos of your outfit...very nice pops of color with the pumps and the bauble necklace!

Carolyn said...

Sounds like a great weekend! :) And see! You're training Sean to be a photographer. I knew you could do it. :)

Also - all I was thinking this entire blog post was CHEESE FRIES. Wow. Apparently baby wants some cheese fries. :)

Desi said...

Yes I'd say they smashed the other team! Your pics are looking fantastic... great motion shots! Love the pic of the team in a huddle with their arms around each other, and the pic right above it (dunno what that's called lol) . And loving those Steve Madden boots. Ok, let's face it, you're a pro at this photography stuff now :)

Kathy C. said...

Yup...I agree with the rest of the should definitely be the official photog for the team! Awesome shots! Loving the outfits too! I need to get back on the wagon with #yesimwearingthis! I've been slacking! You look so cute though! Glad you had such an awesome weekend. :)

Kathy C. said...

Kristen said...

Tenecia said...

You're so gorgeous & fashionable that I have no choice but to start hatin' on you and givin' you the stank brought on yourself!


Susannah said...

Congrats on winning trivia!!! That's awesome!!! :-)

Cece said...

Cheap and good food usually means less then 100% healthy but it's so good. Wow, they really did kill it. That's a landslide. Sorry Sean couldn't play. Ha, ha, doing your job as photographer! Dontcha love it how we get put to work for the team? But it's pretty fun trying to get good shots and it looks like you got some good ones.

YeamieWaffles said...

Well done on the big quiz win Faith, I adore that jacket on you and think that you absolutely rock it! Always love your look when you wear it although to be fair I always love your look full stop! So cool seeing you posing with the Gilbert ball, the same rugby ball we sell over in the UK in the rugby store I work in. As a rugby fan I know for a fact that 106-6 is an absolutely MAMMOTH score for anybody to win by, there must have been a try on average like every 6 minutes or so which is absolutely amazing!

Kacie Ellis said...

I love the bright pops of color in your outfit!

Meg {henninglove} said...

you know i have never had a philly cheesesteak and you look super cute even to get a cheesesteak. i really love your leather jacket, it is so chic on you!

Sounds like a busy weekend but definitely a fun one. You captured some really great photos. Rugby is not popular here in my little piece of the world but I always thought it would be lots of fun to watch :)

Brittany said...

What an awesome weekend! Your pictures from the game are incredible (per usual)...I love the way the blue uniforms pop in the pictures. That yellow bubble necklace is so pretty- I want it! I've wanted a bubble necklace for a long time and need to finally take the plunge. Love your Steve Madden boots, too!

Pegster said...

What an eventful weekend! Love weekends like that. And I'll say it again, your pictures are so good! I'm getting a new camera-baby on Tuesday... Ours went kaput during the cruise, hmph.

Tricia said...

As a former rugby player I always thought of all of the sports to photograph rugby was the coolest one to get shots of. Great job!
