I was so busy I could barely catch my breath during the last week of 2011 and the first week of 2012. We spent the new year in Houston--we had bought tickets to see our alma mater, Northwestern, play in a bowl game at Reliant Center in Houston. They played on New Year's Eve against Texas A&M and sadly, we lost. NU did put up a good fight though, so at least we didn't totally embarrass ourselves. I had never been to Reliant stadium before and I was pleasantly surprised. It was a really nice facility. Everything was really large--Texas style--just how I like it.
I always have to get something to eat at sporting events so I got this giant baked potato with brisket on it. I ate the vast majority of it AND we went out to eat after the game with one of my best friends, Jacquelyn, and her fiancee.
