Fab Friday

After playing catch-up at work all week, I just did not have the energy for a Friday's Fancies post this week.  But the theme is Game Day Chic and that reminded me of something very serious.  You guys, some major dramz is gonna go down with me and The Boyfriend this weekend.  Unfortunately, The Boyfriend (and his whole fam, btw) is a Niners fan.  Or as I like to call them, the "Whiners."  Being a true Texan, I am a Dallas Cowboys fan to the end.  Like, hard core.  In middle school, when other girls my age had posters of Devon Sawa and JTT, I had posters of Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith.  When my girlfriends spent their Sundays painting their nails, I spent my Sundays watching football and shouting at the TV.  For my 13th birthday, my mom thought it would be really funny to get me a cake decorated in green and yellow for the Green Bay Packers.  (Just FYI, the Packers and the Whiners were our biggest rivals in the early to mid-90s and I absolutely hated them.)  I threw a teenaged hissy fit and refused to even blow out the candles on that treacherous cake, much less eat a piece of it.  My mom ended up going to the grocery store down the street and picking up a Cowboys cake.  At grocery stores in San Antonio, Cowboys cakes were available on demand, especially during the playoffs.

So you know I must really really love that Boyfriend of mine if I'm willing to look past such a glaring personality flaw and date him despite the Whiners fandom.  When we first started dating three years ago, we made a deal that neither one of us would actively root against the other's team ... unless they were playing each other.  Well guess what.  Our rival teams are playing each other.  This Sunday.  I hope our love can withstand the test.

Despite all the different gold and red nail polishes I have, I painted my nails gray for the Big Game.  If only I had a lovely dark blue (or silver...).

  5. The whole cake story made me laugh. I can totally relate. I wouldn't blow out the candles of a Florida State or a Tennessee cake.

    Your nails came out great.
