Nashville Huksers - Kansas @ Nebraska - Nashville, TN

I am 100% blown away with the AMAZING turn out we had this weekend at the game. It was our largest turn out yet 150!!! If we keep growing like this we are going to have to find another place to watch the games...eek! a good problem to have I suppose.

I was sitting there on Saturday looking around and was totally overwhelmed (in a good way) and was thinking about how cool it is to have a place in Nashville, TN where there are so many Husker fans watching the game. To be honest...I think we have only scratched the surface of Nebraska fans here in Middle Tennessee, I can't imagine how big this group can get. But I sure am proud to be apart of it!

Here are some pictures from the game this weekend!

Also check out those awesome T-shirts. I think they look sooooooooooooooooo great!

I also wanted to toss some fun stats out there for you...
- Through 10 games...1085 people have walked through the doors of the Frayed Knot to watch a Nebraska game!
- We are averaging 109 people a week
- Nearly 90% of the people who show up, didn't RSVP...Thanks guys ;) ha ha ha
- Our largest attendance at a game was 150 (Kansas @ Nebraska)
- Our smallest attendance at a game was 45 (Missouri @ Nebraska)
- 142 Nashville Huskers T-shirts have been sold



I am sure that you might be a little bit tired of hearing how great things are going with the new house, the neighborhood, and well my neighbors! But they are and I LOVE where I live.

I have been truly blessed to find such an awesome place to live AND have super cool neighbors...

We go from house to house to hang out, have dinner, play a game, watch a movie, or just enjoy each others company!

What a good lookin' crew ;)

Here are some of the latest pics of the bunch, at Kelly's Housewarming party!

I really couldn't ask for anything better!

Chihuly Nights at Cheekwood

I made it! Granted it was the last night of the Chihuly exhibit at Cheekwood, but I got to go see it...

And wouldn't you know it I left my camera at home, so I "borrowing" Megan's pictures (THANKS MEGAN) from that night. The pictures don't do it justice!

It was such a chilly night out but it was fun to spend some time with the neighbors!

Jay, Me, Jason, and Megan.

What great people to spend a wonderful evening with! Thanks guys!

Check it out!

One of our Nashville Huskers wrote a blog about our group...Check it out!


Nashville Huskers - Nebraska @ Iowa State - Nashville, TN

What another GREAT turn out at the Frayed Knot for the Nebraska @ Iowa State game...Our final count was 120!!!! I am always so excited to watch games with other great Husker fans! We always have such a good time.

We squeaked out a win...but a win is a win is a win! We are in full control of our destiny in the Big 12 right now. All we have to do is win out and we will be in the Big 12 Championship. There is still a lot of football to play yet this season.

Our T-shirts came in this week and they looked great! I could not be happier!

My friend Kevin was in town for the Florida Vandy game and he came and hung out for the Husker game! It was great to see him, it had been years!


Happy Belated Halloween

So, I know Halloween was a couple of weeks ago, but I just had to post some pictures of our pumpkins and my table!

So here they are!

Casey and I carved pumpkins just like old times... Although Mr. Art opted to create his own design a three headed cat on the left, and mine is the owl on the left...


When I was in Omaha, I made this black and orange Halloween table cloth, I think it is UGLY as all get out but I LOVE it! And I put it on my table every year! It makes me smile :)

The Scariest Place...

Sometimes I think the scariest place to be is all alone with your own thoughts...

I can tell that it is November...I am in the thick of things at work, and about to head in to the last push for the fall...We've hit the halfway point in the football season, and a little part of me can't wait 'til it is over...Recruitment is gearing up...and burn out is right around the corner, I can feel it...

Don't get me wrong I LOVE all of these activities and I am so blessed to have an amazing job...This is just the time of the year that they all seem to demand the most of me...When I get worn out, I get overwhelmed with my own thoughts which can be very scary at times...Like,

Why do I take on so much?
How do people do what I do and have a family to tend to?
Are all my extra activities good or bad?
Is this helping shape my future positively?
Are they keeping me from meeting someone, or giving me the opportunity to?
Is this what God wants me to be doing?
Am I using the talents, skills and abilities I've been given properly?
What are my talents, skills and abilities?
Am I good a anything?

Then I hyperventilate...

And really the questions I ask myself could go on and on...but at some point I have to quit, and just TRUST. Trust that these things are coming up because I am drained...Which might be an even scarier place to be, because you start to worry, and doubt...

Then I sit here and look around, and see how amazingly blessed I am. I have phenomenal friends. A incredibly loving and supporting family. A life that I really do love.

Happy Halloween!

Casey and I dressed up for Halloween this year...

Case made his costume out of duct tape...can you believe that? I have such a creative brother! I thought my Flo costume was pretty good too!

Hope everyone had a good and safe Halloween!
