Go Pokes! (did I just say that?)

As you can imagine, Jeff was thrilled with the idea that we were moving closer to OSU – his alma mater – in Stillwater.  On September 13, he took Liam and me for our first OSU football game.  Our little “Poke” had a great time!

Our first trip to Eskimo Joe's - for shopping and some lunch!

We couldn't visit the student union without some more shopping.  Liam loves his OSU swag!

Loved hearing the band, watching Pistol Pete and cheering for the football players during the Spirit Walk!

As I constantly remind Mr. OSU Grad, he wasn’t the only one in our house to attend a Big 12 school.  Texas Tech is my alma mater, and I couldn’t help but notice quite a few similarities between the two schools:

Our mascots – both are well-armed.

Both schools know how to make an unforgetable entrance on the football field.

It’s not a football game unless you’re holding up your hands in a gun formation!

I admit that there is one very delicious tradition unique to OSU:

Eskimo Joe's Cheese Fries with Bacon

That said, once a RED RAIDER always a RED RAIDER.

There's no place like Raiderland.

It was a great Saturday spent with two of my loves.  And seriously… if you’re ever in Stillwater, stop at Eskimo Joe’s and get the cheese fries.  With bacon.
