Capital One Bowl

Erik and I made it to the Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Florida. As soon as we heard the Gamecocks were playing in Orlando, we knew we wanted to make the trip. We went back and forth trying to decide if it was really feasible. In the end, we decided we couldn't miss out on such a fun opportunity. Mimi, Papi, and Jenna offered to watch Harper for the long weekend. I was sad to leave him but I know he had a blast and he was spoiled rotten while we were gone.

We are so glad we made the trip. The Gamecocks won and it was one heck of a game. We had such a fun time. We met up with some of our good friends and ended up tailgating with some complete strangers after the game. The strangers were Carolina fans and showed us true southern hospitality when they offered us Crown & Coke and lots of snacks.

After the tailgate we met up with a bunch of USC alumni at the Renaissance hotel. And we had a wonderful dinner with the Elmores. Overall, it was a great day to be a Gamecock.

And if you love Erik's shirt, it is from Southern Tide. They started making collegiate polos. They have Carolina, Clemson, and Alabama ones! Check them out here!   This is Erik's new favorite polo! 

With USC quarterback, Connor Shaw.


  1. Fantastic time. The weather looks good too - nice and sunny. Glad you had a fun time out. So important to get out when you have a baby.

  2. I was there last year to watch Alabama play. Loved It. What an awesome place to have a bowl game. Hope you incorporated some theme parks into your visit.
