Not Me! Monday

In case you haven't been introduced to Not Me Monday, here is the gist: This fun game originated with Mckmama, while LittleSack introduced it to me. you just list a lot of things you "didn't" (read: actually did) do this weekend/past week. All in the name of admitting that we all make mistakes and aren't perfect.

This is going to be more of a couple's edition, since we spent the weekend in Virginia watching IU (Indiana University Hoosiers) lose badly to Virginia. Mr. Potts definitely had a few, "Not Me!" moments.
  • We didn't get up Saturday morning to begin tailgating by 11am. Not us! No way would our breakfast consist of fried chicken, macaroni & cheese and beer! No way!
  • We didn't watch the Hoosiers hand the ball over to the other team & just watch as they ran by them. Uh uh - never happened. We definitely were not seated in a full Virginia section while sporting IU shirts. These guys across the field were quite entertaining, though.
  • Mr. Potts and I did not decide 2 minutes before half-time that since IU hadn't scored & were losing 28-0, that we were going to leave the stadium & walk to a bar. Nope, no way we'd ever leave before a game was over just to have some beers!!
  • We didn't then get bad directions from random people on the street who totally sent us WAY out of the way - causing us to walk for at least 30 minutes to get to a Buffalo Wild Wings. Uh uh - we would never go that far for an adult beverage.
  • Mr. Potts didn't then proceed to commiserate with a fellow Hoosier about how badly they were losing. No way would we sit with people 10 years our junior & get inebriated. Uh uh.
  • Mr. Potts did not walk out of said establishment & leave behind his favorite zip-up hoodie. No way would he be that out of it. He would not then proceed to pass out at the table of the restaurant we then went to with his head on his arms while everyone looked on. I did not walk him out to the van so he could lay down in the back seat. No way. Not us. We're way to grown up for that!
On Sunday we went with our friend for a tour of the Virginia campus. It was absolutely gorgeous - I have to say, however, that I would have loved to have spent the afternoon on our couch. Some pictures from our tour.What a gorgeous chapel on their campus!!

Looking behind us, you'll see Jefferson's Academical Village - students & professors live here!

All, in all, a great weekend!! What all did you NOT do this weekend?
If anyone has any suggestions where we can get a replacement hoodie for Mr. Potts, I'd greatly appreciate it! His was from Banana last year & was a navy material with a grey (super soft) material on the inside. He's heartbroken to have lost it.

Those are great two are such an adorable couple. Looks like you did NOT have any fun. Sorry for the not walking out of your way and not leaving the hoodie.

That sucks about Mr. Potts hoodie, when you find a favorite piece of clothing you can never leave it behind, if need be you should hire a babysitter for it! haha...glad you had a wonderful weekend.

I heart C'ville. My sissy is a UVa alum.

You should have gotten some froyo from Arches. Oh, how I love their homemade brownies!!!

Sounds like you guys had a great weekend in VA!

Great pics and that sounds a lot like what we do when there are home games here! Tailgating before noon, check. Drinking beer when I should be drinking OJ, check. Heading to a bar once the Aggies start losing, check!

Let's see: I did NOT watch my beloved Hoos roll over Andy's beloved Hoosiers. I did NOT chuckle just the tiniest bit over Andy's post-game condition (I have NEVER been in his shoes). I did NOT have fun meeting new friends this weekend.
This is fun!! So great to meet you guys this weekend. Thanks for making the trip up. I'm loving your blog.

So you didn't have an awesome weekend, right? Because it sure doesn't sound like you did! Ha!

I love "not me!" My friends and I do that and say "That's a compliment!" For instance..."My boyfriend broke up with me over text message today." Then we all chime in "That's a compliment!"

That campus is so gorgeous!
