Mushy Monday- Another IU Game!

On Saturday, Mr Pug and I went to the big Bucket Game aka IU/Purdue. Of course you know we're Indiana Hoosier fans!!!! Unfortunately, the game was a bust. But we had fun anyway! We piled 50 or so IU and Purdue fans on a rented bus and head down to Bloomington. On the two lane highway we were on (one lane northbound, one southbound) there was an accident. Our bus driver decided to do a U-turn.

Yea it was stuck like that. And completely blocked traffic. For about an hour.

Mr Pug and I got out with everyone else and waited for the cops and tow truck... yea, I'm not kidding.

(Yep those are the leftover koozies from our engagement party/shower in NJ!) I won't lie, I had a NASTY bad attitude about being out on the side of the road with no end in sight. But Mr Pug was charming and funny and supportive and made me (and I'm sure others!) feel positive. I mean... we had our beer!

Here's that tow truck...

One of the guys asked the cop "I bet you see this all the time, right?" He laughed and said "NOPE!"

When we finally got there, we popped around to see our friends who were tailgating.

After a few hours we went to a local bar. It was great to hang out with friends and relax with each other- no wedding talk, no work worries, nothing but IU, friends, and each other. Oh, and beer!

So for non-fans, ok, maybe not so interesting. But Mr Pug being there for me, so able to make me smile, and cheer me up, is one of the reasons I fell in love with him in the first place. I love that we enjoy sports together and have the opportunity to visit his alma mater, since it's so close by!

What things that you do together remind you why you fell in love with your fiance or husband?
