Weekend Recap: All Things Connecticut

This weekend was all about Connecticut - local bloggers and the UConn huskies!

Friday night, Kallie and I hosted our first Northeast Bloggers - Connecticut area meet up.  The six of us met at Esca Wine Bar in Middletown to share blog ideas, get to know each other, and enjoy some wine - duh!

Amanda and I feasted!

Kallie's awesome CT trivia

Our sponsor of the night was CocoaShak, a local chocolate shop.  Even if you're not in the CT area, you can shop their selection online and I highly recommend you do!

Sorry for blinding you, Adriana, but I needed a photo of the best truffles ever!!!

Saturday, Mike and I got in the car early and headed down through NYC.  A few weeks ago, we got tickets to the UConn vs. Temple football game in Philadelphia, and on the way, we decided to swing down to Delaware to see Mike's family.

Lincoln Financial Stadium where the Eagles [and Temple Owls] play!

Eating a Philly cheese steak and drinking beer in 35 degree weather in our AWESOME seats!

We took an adventure to the upper deck...needless to say, the whole field was a bit empty.

UConn WON!!! It was their first win of the year and after the game, they all came by and thanked all of the fans who came to see them.

Sunday, Mike and I did some much needed work inside and outside our house, but in the afternoon, we went to our first UConn Women's Basketball game of the year.  The #1 ranked Huskies destroyed St. Bonaventure!

Now it's your turn:
-What did you do this weekend?
-Do you have a favorite college team? [Even if it might not actually be where you went to school, like me?]

Linking up for This Weekend I...Weekend Shenanigans, and Monday Funday!

So jealous of your blogger meet-up!! Looks like so much fun! Hopefully we'll have one here in MS soon! Your weekend looks like it was a lot of fun! Very cool that they came and said thanks to the fans that showed up. Obviously, Mississippi State is my fave college team! :)

YAY! Go HUSKIES! Was the stadium really that empty? That is kind of pathetic lol.
