Not being a football fan, I can’t tell you how little I really care about Saturday games in a college town. I promise you, I’m not your average college student. There is something special, though, about having your own tent in The Grove to tailgate. It’s honestly the only way I like to tailgate. You have your friends and family surrounding you, a place to sit, relax, with yummy food to eat and bubbly to drink. The Grove really is something special, I will say that.

“The Grove is the legendary tailgating area located at the center of the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) campus. Surrounded by ancient oaks, mysterious elms, and Mississippi magnolias, the 10-acre sized plot known as “The Grove” plays host, most autumn Saturday afternoons, to thousands of Ole Miss Rebel tailgaters,” –Wikipedia.

I had the best time this weekend while my friends and family visited. My parents rented two tents in The Grove and brought all kinds of goodies to enjoy. My three best friends from high school to visit, my brothers, and two of my younger cousins. It was a great weekend!

  1. I hear ya girl!! I am not a fan of football so football Saturdays utterly bore me! It looks like you had a blast regardless, though!

  4. Looks like such a fun weekend though!

  5. This sounds like so much fun! Makes me wish that my college had a football team- our little "tailgates" for basketball games are kinda awful compared to big schools like yours, haha!

  9. This looks like so much fun! At my school, hardly anyone went to the game, tailgating is definitely the main event (probably a d-3 problem).

    with southern grace,

  10. Oh my goodness, you are the absolute cutest! I'm so glad that you had a fun weekend :)

  11. I'm not into football but I am into the social aspects of the sport. I can't help it, I just get bored by the third quarter. But I do love being around friends and family and if they like sports, I can be found at least at the tailgate.

  12. It looks like you had a great time! I feel the same way about tailgating on the Plains in Auburn, there's something magical about it :)

  13. You are so cute! That's probably the only way I would tailgate too!

  14. What a fun weekend! This is my type of tailgate! You are adorable, sweet girl!!

  15. I honestly HATE football but I don't think I would be able to turn down these fun festivities. This seems like such a great school tradition!

  16. That looks like so much fun! I love it whenever my parents come to town on a football weekend and join me in the tailgating experience.


  17. Oh my goodness! This looks like an absolute blast! I love tailgating.

  18. I've heard a lot about the Grove! Y'all had such a close game this past weekend!

  19. I'm so jealous! I've heard that Ole Miss has the best tailgates. That's probably what I miss most about college!
