HAPPY NATIONAL PET DAY!
We were going to go to the stadium in a bus the Cleveland Backers of Kansas City had set up for everyone. It was scheduled to leave at 8am. So we woke up early and ate breakfast at Einstein Bagel. Once we were done, we picked up the stuff we were going to take to the game. We waited and waited. The bus was a no show. I felt really bad because the organizer was so embarrassed. It was not his fault. He promised to send back our check for the payment. We had a car, so getting there was not a problem. We were more excited because of the team camaraderie. Since the driver was a no show-we needed to prepare to head to the stadium. The first step was getting ice off of the windows. We don’t have an ice scraper. But never fret, there was a plastic hanger in the trunk of the car. That took care of the ice beautifully. We were ready to go and could see. Earlier that morning we rolled the windows down, with 30 degree weather! in order to be able to drive two blocks away.
Traffic was poppin. We left the hotel around 9ish and didn’t get there until 11am. That’s how crazy the traffic to the stadium was. I loved the fans. Everyone was so nice and they took pictures of us in front of their stadium. Since they are the loudest stadium, I was ready to get a headache. Nope-I was freezing, but there was no headache. It was so empowering to see everyone backing up their team. And it is true, you cannot see the other team in the sea of red. The only bad thing is that the hot chocolate salesman couldn’t see me every time I wanted to buy hot chocolate. It was until the 3rd quarter he was able to see me. I tell you, that is the most glorious hot chocolate of my life. I was super duper cold.
The browns lost the game. Even then, the fans were awesome. We truly enjoyed the game. Next time the Browns play in Arrowhead, we will definitely want to come. My one and only complaint of the stadium is the nachos. A bag of Tostitos with a side of cheese is not Nachos. To their defense, the cheese stayed warm at least 20 minutes after we bought it, in 30 degree weather.
We wanted to go into the World War 1 Memorial Museum. We missed it by about 30 minutes. We will definitely try to make some time, next time there is a game. The view was worth the short trip from Fritz. It’s so pretty, we saw 4 couples taking engagement pictures in a 15 minute time frame. It was surreal standing there, remembering all of the brave soldiers that have gifted us with our liberties. The view of the city was also amazing. On the way to the store we also saw a firefighters memorial. We spoke to a lady that had lost her dad and cousin in two different fires. It was an honor to speak to her. She was very inspirational.
We also did some Christmas shopping and tried to find souvenirs. We failed at the finding souvenirs part. We headed back to the hotel and I crashed. I don’t remember anything else until I woke up. I call that a successful second day.
Happy Halloween. Can you tell it’s one of our favorite holidays? This year Peanut was a Mariachi. Her trumpet was crashed in the trunk by accident-but we have a replacement in the leasing office. We haven’t picked it up. Maybe we’ll do a reshoot. Here is a little bit of our Halloween decor.
And this is our front door.
My plan was to do a tutorial. I never got around to it but it’s very easy to make. I basically bought a cheap boa, gardening wire (you can use a metal hanger, the wire is the perfect gauge, I didn’t have one). After that, I covered the wire with black duct tape, wrapped around the boa, added a tulle bow and wrapped some ribbon around it. I already had a plastic skeleton from last year that I just tied. At the end I just added a string to hang it.
