That time of year is here again and I’m so excited!  One of the greatest traditions dear to the hearts of college football fans everywhere is tailgating so last year Mandy Kellogg Rye from Waiting on Martha and I collaborated in putting together the ultimate tailgating extravaganza filled with original and fun ideas to make your tailgating experience a parking-lot party to remember!  Since we got such rave feedback, I wanted to share this post once again.  Happy Tailgating!!

What better way to tailgate than to use your SUV!  It’s functionality is so practical — great for transporting all of your essentials as well as entertaining space during the pre-game showdown!  Thanks so much to Hennessy Land Rover and Porsche for letting us borrow these great vehicles!
