I know I am not the only coach's wife or super fan out there that has their own weekly rituals. Let us not forget that great Bud Light ad to the song "Very Superstitious".....It is only weird if it doesn't work......right๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ. We all have our own system to prepare for game day.

Despite the craziness of taking care of my four boys and working a full-time job, there are just some things I must get done for game day. Some may say I am overly superstitious....or that maybe I try too hard. I say do not mess with a good thing....aka......#DontMessWithTheJuJu

If we Win...I usually factor in everything that has happened the previous week. If I washed my better believe I am going to be washing it again. Don't think I'll be forgetting my team car flags either (my sons will vouch for me on that one.) I've been known to drive right back home if I do. If we tailgated last week....more than than likely we'll be doing it again. Nails painted in team colors for last Saturday's win....yup....I'll be keeping the same game day color scheme for the next one๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿผ✔️.

If we lose....(I hate even thinking about that....I mean let's not even put that out in the universe....right?!???)....but if we do...don't think you'll be seeing me in anything I wore for that game the rest of the's just bad luck๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ.

I remember when my husband coached at Colorado, I made peanut butter cookies for my husband's players before every game. When we lost halfway through season....guess who needed to come up with a new recipe๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿช.

Other coaches wives on staffs we had worked on have been known to hit the concessions/restroom when things weren't looking great in the hopes that it would help turn the game around. I remember we'd keep sending them back down when we thought it was actually working๐Ÿฟ๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.

So our football season officially starts this Thursday night. I will say, I have complete faith that our coaches have come up with an amazing game plan for the opening game.....and we have a bunch of very good players to execute the plan. I just like to believe that "my system" might also help light up a big fat "WIN" on our scoreboard Thursday night. 

So best of luck to all those coaches' wives and great fans out there who also have their own rituals to help with a winning season. isn't weird if it works. Go Jacks๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿˆ!!

PS......I'd  love to know your traditions as coaches' wives or super fans to be game day ready......

10 Things You Might Say if You're a Mom of Boys....

If you are a mom of boys you can probably relate to saying most if not all of this list....

1. WHAT HAPPENED!?!?!? Usually said when someone is crying, screaming in pain, or you just heard the sound of something breaking๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ค๐ŸฅŠ

2. Who clogged the toilet? I swear there must be legos trapped in that thing....why does this always happen in their bathroom?!?!?!๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผ‍♀️

3. Did you wash your hands? For some reason boys need CONSTANT reminders๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍♂️๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿผ‍♀️✋๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿผ

4. What's for dinner? Are you kidding me.....we just had breakfast. Boys eat A LOT!!!!❓๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ‍♂️

5. Keep it in the potty. I am like the toilet Nazi at my house....sorry NO ONE likes cleaning filthy/smelly toilets๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ

6. Don't say poop at the table!!!!! I do not get it.....why do boys like potty talk? I can not stand that word! Anything to do with bathroom talk makes them all roll on the floor laughing hysterically๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿฝ

7. BOYYYYS!!! Lets just say there is quite a few selective listeners in the house. I think Snapchat seems to make their ears less likely to hear their mom calling them๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ“ฑ

8. Be careful!!!! I say this regularly. This summer, one son alone has had to get three sets of x-rays...... there is truly never a dull moment with boys. They keep me on my toes....or in Urgent care๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป

9. WHO DID THIS????? A bump in the wall...wrappers on the name it. The mysterious part about it one ever knows how it happened ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍♂️๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿผ‍♀️

10. No baseball in the house!!! For some reason they have to be reminded of this frequently......when they forget, it is usually followed by #1.......WHAT HAPPENED?!?!?⚾️๐Ÿ˜ณ
