Gameday

I don’t know about you, but I am beyond pumped for the start of college football season. I take immense pride in my alma mater, the University of Georgia. I bleed red and black and am a die hard DAWG fan. Games kicked off this week, but the DAWGS play tomorrow, so that’s when my season officially starts.

Sadly, I no longer live in Athens (or Georgia for that matter) and won’t be at Sanford Stadium to cheer on my DAWGS in person as they go up against Clemson. Have no fear, I will be participating in the red out, dressed to the nines in my school colors, cheering on my team all the way from Madison, WI.

If I do make it to a game this season, there is one essential item I won’t leave home without: my GirlyGoGarter.

My mom actually discovered GirlyGoGarter while on a buying trip at AmericasMart Atlanta last January. She brought home a couple samples, and instantly, we were hooked. I remember thinking how perfect the GirlyGoGarter would have been for New Year’s Eve – a night where I struggled and scrambled around trying to figure out what bag I could stand to lug around all night. Never again! Since then I have used my GirlyGoGarter at concerts, festivals, or just a night out. Now, I can’t wait to get to Sanford Stadium and use my GirlyGoGarter on GAMEDAY!
