Football season is my favorite time of year, and I spend most of the summer counting down to it starting. Now that it’s just about here (only 19 days until the Hokies’ first game), it’s hard to contain my excitement. Some of my fondest college memories involve Hokie football, and I’m aching to go to Blacksburg for a game. I have yet to bring Abbie or Ella, and I cannot wait to watch them experience Lane Stadium for the first time. I’m hoping we’ll be able to make a trip this year – I haven’t even been able to take Chris in all the years we’ve been together!
Of course, with football comes tailgating. Since we haven’t been able to throw our own tailgates in the past, we’re just starting to stock up on the essentials. For that, I turned to the Coleman collection at Walmart. They have everything we could need – tables, chairs, grills, coolers, tents, dishes and more. I grabbed a small table and two chairs and had them delivered straight to my house with 2-day shipping. I love that ordering everything from Walmart.com made it fast and easy.
I like to keep tailgating pretty simple – hot dogs, burgers, drinks, and some fresh fruit and veggies. I have a feeling tailgating with kids when we go will be a whole different ballgame from tailgating in the past, so simple it is! This table from Coleman holds everything we need it to – I love that it’s super portable and so simple to set up and take down.
As for these chairs? My favorite thing about them is the insulated pocket. No warm beverages at our tailgates! Now to hope that it doesn’t get filled with Abbie’s snacks instead of mine, right?
Are you tailgating this year? Make sure you pick up the essentials from Coleman at Walmart!
