Nashville Huskers - Nebraska @ Washington - Nashville, TN

Wow I am continually impressed with the turn out at these Husker Watch Parties! The game this week was AWESOME and we had 125 Cornhusker fans show up to the Frayed Knot to support our team it was great!

Here are some pictures from this weekend:

We will be back at the Frayed Knot again next week for the Homecoming game against South Dakota State. It will be a PPV game and kick off is at 6! So get there early!

Can't wait to see everyone!

Game Day

So often I feel like I over commit my self to doing just way too much. The problem is that, for the most part, I love all my "extra" stuff...

My very favorite is game day! I started Nashville Huskers/Nasvhillians for Nebraska (i really need to choose one name and stick with it) for purely selfish reasons. I had lived in Nashville just over two year and was about to go into 3rd football season and really really wanted to watch the game with some other Nebraska fans. I knew there were some around I would see bumper stickers and license plate covers all across town.

So, stalked people (kinda, not really, but yeah) on Facebook, LinkedIn, name it to find other Nebraska fans in town. I set our first game for the '09 VA Tech game. I had 20 people say that they would show up, I was ecstatic...I was also SO SO SO nervous that these 20 people were not going to show up and I was going to look like a fool to the bar. I pretty much wanted to puke as Casey and I were walking in.

To my shock and amazement the bar was already full of Nebraska Fans...85 showed up that day! I instantly felt better, and knew that this was something special. Little did I know, at that point, what a defining moment that was for me. In planning these events I have discovered my passions, talents, skills and abilities.

The 2009 season ended strong, there were a few bumps in the road, but you know I learned from them in order to make the 2010 season all that much better!

This group always seems to surprise me!

I had made a goal for myself at the beginning of the season. I wanted a game with at least 100 people there. That goal was reached in the first game of the season, with 130 people. I think I was in a bit of shock...I saw very little of the game, because I was mixing and mingling it was AWESOME. The next game was 120 (it was a morning game, fewer people attend those)...

I am just so happy! It is fun to see the success of such a great group. The Nashville Husker fans are amazing, and so much fun to be around.

We are also becoming a hot commodity! I've had 2 bars contact me this week to see if I was interested in switching locations... :)

It is funny...before 2 weeks ago it was a challenge to get a bar in SEC country to give up a SEC game for a Nebraska game, now it seems like they are more than willing, if I bring the club.

The Frayed Knot has been really good to us, so we are staying there...however it is always prudent to re-evaluate these things every year...

Today the Nebraska Cornhuskers take on the Washington Huskies at Washington. People are calling for this to be a close game. I really hope not, but I would like for it to be a good one! If you are in Nashville and are looking to watch the game come on out to the Frayed Knot at 2:30 today, I am expecting a good turn out!

Nashville Huskers - Idaho @ Nebraska - Nashville, TN

What another awesome turn out at the Husker Watch Party here in Nashville! We had 120 for an 11:30 am game, with major technical difficulties. I was so impressed that everyone stuck with us through the Internet Radio portion of the afternoon! You are all troopers for sticking with us! At least we got to see the last half of the game.

Goal for the season is to get the FL fan converted to the Huskers... I think we can do it!

We will be back at the Frayed Knot (204 21st Ave S, Nashville, TN) on Saturday, 9.18.10, for the Nashville Huskers, Nebraska watch party. Kick off for the Nebraska @ Washington game is 2:30. See you there!



Nashville Huskers - Western Kentucky @ Nebraska - Nashville, TN

I am a blog posting fool tonight.... Here are some pictures from our first Nashville Huskers watch party of the season.

We had an awesome turn out at the Frayed Knot (204 21st Ave South, Nashville, TN) the count was right around 130! The best turn out EVER. More than I ever expected! Thank you Huskers for being so awesome!

We will be back at the Frayed Knot this Saturday for the game against Washington. I hope all Nebraska Cornhusker Fans in Nashville will be able to make it to the Frayed Knot - 204 21st Ave S., Nashville, TN.

See you there!




I've realized over the past couple of days what my God given talents/gifts are. And, I am pretty darn excited about it... However, I think I might be a little slow to the party. I am positive that others have seen these talents in me for a very long time.

I am not quite sure what to call these "talents", but I do know that I have the ability to bring people together. I have the ability to lead, network, get people involved and to make people feel comfortable in any situation. And, I have a strong entrepreneurial spirit. I use these skills every day, at work, with my Nashville Huskers, with the Vanderbilt Tri Deltas, the Nashville Young Tri Delta Alums...really with everything that I do.

I often wonder if I am not using my "talents" appropriately because I am not doing these kinds of things at church. But then a dear friend reminded me that just by using the talent that God has given me I am glorifying him. I am also setting an example.

So, now that I know and understand, it is time to figure out what to do with these amazing gifts I've been given :)


I'm Back!

Ok, so I know that I have been MIA for a while...

I was having serious computer/internet issues and I ended up getting a Mac Mini Last week... I am so excited. I love it... Yep I am a convert, and proud of it :)

Things also started to pick up at work which meant there was less time to post a blog...So I will do a quick recap of the past month or so!

I moved into my house, and painted, which I think you saw pictures of :) I am still loving it so so much! I have met so many neighbors and they are all pretty awesome, I can't complain!

At the end of July I started back up on weight watchers, and I have lost 8 pounds which puts me at -18 since Christmas 2009 :). Although I don't think you can tell. I can because my pants don't fit... but no one else seems to notice, which could be good or bad. Good that I carried the extra 18 well, or bad I still look like I need to lose 20 lbs... Oh well, I feel better and my close don't fit so I guess that is really all that matters. :)

September 2010


At the end of July was the Eve of Janus that became very time consuming, but over all it was a great experience. However I think I may have to pass the torch to someone new next year, I had entirely too much on my plate... (I like how I say that in the past tense, I still have too much on my plate but love it all) The Eve was BEAUTIFUL...yes there was some was quite fitting for this year...

After the Eve things really started to pick up. The Anderson's were in town for Erik and Jackie's wedding and we were so lucky to be able to spend so much time with them. I took a couple of days off because I knew that fall was going to be here soon and there would be no time to breathe!
