Kegs and Eggs Shenanigans

by Courtney on March 13, 2011

Yesterday’s Kegs & Eggs was such a blast!!!!

Once everyone started to arrive, we got to work on breakfast…Overnight French Toast & Egg Strata

Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls (don’t knock ‘em, they’re awesome!)

IMG_0995

Mal’s Blueberry Coffee Cake

Plus some other goodies, including Kate’s Cheddar & Sour Cream Scones and Andrea’s brownies. Smile

Then, of course, there were the beverages…

Frozen mimosas! They were good, but the general consensus is that they’re better straight up, not frozen.

Boys being boys. Winking smile

Eventually Just Dance 2 was broken out, and it was dance party time!!

At first, Cody wasn’t quite sure what to make of everything going on…

but he ended up having plenty of people willing to play with him during the day. He was a happy camper. Smile

As the day went on, we all decided we’d rather just hang out at the house rather than fight the crowds at the parade. So we made our own fun shenanigans!

For example, my brother thought it would be fun to sled down the front of the yard.

But then realized that being hit by an oncoming car probably wouldn’t be as fun…

So then we brought the party out to the back yard, where some games of beer pong ensued.

And then, once again, my brother thought it would be fun to “help us clean up our old kitchen cabinets” by smashing them with softball bats.

IMG_1045

Jay also thought this would be a good idea. Ohhh boys. Eye rolling smile

IMG_1046

This picture really makes me laugh. Smile

Overall, I think everyone really enjoyed themselves! Some may have enjoyed themselves a little too much, but I won’t mention any names….

Winking smile

****************

Jay and I just finished up some leftover breakfast, and now we’ll see where the day brings us. I was hoping to go out to look for a new kitchen table, but I was just informed that today is “Selection Sunday” with basketball soooooo, not sure if I’ll be able to coerce him out of the house.

Call me crazy, but I just don’t understand all of the hoopla over this “March Madness” stuff?

Question for the Day:

Do you follow college basketball? Do you get involved in any brackets?

That’s a great idea! I haven’t done Kegs & Eggs since fall 2006! Kegs & Eggs at one of the frat house on campus, or a friends apartments, and then a short bus ride downtown for a Gopher football game! I may have to start this tradition on St. Patty’s weekend too!

P.s. I love Pillsbury cinnamon rolls! When I was a kid I would make a tube under the guise that it was for the whole family, and then eat 6 of the 8 over the course of the day (my family isn’t really into sweets)!

Ahaha! It looks like you guys had so much fun! What a great idea :) And with the basketball – I don’t get it either. I’m getting my Master’s at George Mason and they’re doing really well – but I just can’t get into it. Oh well! ;)

Looks like a fun afternoon! I agree, there is nothing wrong with Pillsbury cinnamon rolls :)

I have to agree with your husband, Selection Sunday is one of the best sports days of the year! I can’t get enough March Madness – I think it’s the sports fanatic in me. :)

Looks like fun! I can NOT get into things like March Madness. Sometimes I’ll keep track of the scores if I happen to randomly bet on games (my coworkers love doing this,) but usually I just breeze past basketball.

I am a football girl, so not all that into March Madness . . . but I’m also a sports fan, so I’ll watch a game if it’s on.

I love the intense concentration on your face in the beer pong pic! I am the same way, but I never realize how focused I am until I see a pic like that! :)

Your kegs & eggs pics make me miss college!!

And I’m so excited for March Madness! I’m in a bracket tournament with some girlfriends but its just for fun – no money. But maybe we should put a little wager bc we get kinda competitive!

looks like you guys had a great day (how can it be a bad day when there are mimosas and cinnamon rolls involved?)!

I’m definitely looking forward to March Madness. Choosing a bracket makes the tournament so much more exciting. If you like sports, need some advice as to how to make your Madness selections or just need a laugh, check out my blog at http://www.sportsblitzditz.com
