Would You Rather?

After visiting with family for the holiday, we're still on the road staying with friends. It's Saturday afternoon and everyone went to the game. Poor me stayed back with my children. I debated going to lunch or taking the kids for a walk - but the flurries and wind said otherwise. Instead...I put the little ones down for a much needed nap, made this sandwich and helped myself to a beer.

So for today's traveling post I thought I'd ask, "Would You Rather..."

Be standing outside at a tailgate in 30 degree temps, drinking Bloody Mary's and hot chocolate, eating hot dogs and then sitting through a college football game? (PSU/MSU)


Sitting in a warm house with sleeping kiddies, games on large flat screen, homemade sandwich with chips and an ice cold {draft} beer?

I decided either way...I'm happy  :)   I'll be back in my kitchen (and to visiting your blogs) soon!

I would rather do exactly as you did ... kids resting, homemade sandwich and comfortable.

That sandwich looked delicious!

Scoot over on the sofa to make room for me, I'll go get us a couple more beers.

Sandwich looks AWESOME, btw.

For me the best hour of the day is when my son is sleeping in his bed and I can sit down and relax doing things I love. But most of all I love the silence that falls in our house once my child is asleep.

Hah! I was AT THE GAME in the windy, snowy cold :) Poor lions :( But then we made up for it with Cafe 210 fries and teas... THAT'S what I'd rather do!! Hope you had a lovely holiday! I plan to return to blogging once the leftovers are gone and I put my apron back on :) That is.... if my apron still fits, hah!

Oh the 2nd, defiantly the 2nd option!!

Ah! I love how everyone picked option 2! Wish you all could have been there hanging out!

The Food Hound was at The Cafe!? Jealous! How many teas??? Honest...

As much as I love going to a game and tailgating... 30 degrees is a killer! I vote for staying home in the warm house!!!

That would depend on my humor of the day. It sounds like you've had a great holiday. Your sandwich looks other worldly good. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

That's an easy question to answer.

I'd DEFINITELY rather be sitting at home in front of the large flat screen with a cooler of beer as my footstool... HEE!

However, that said, I've spent many a frigid day in my youth tailgating. I've turned into a wimp!
