Day Seventeen.

A favorite picture of myself and why I love it.


1. My Giants shirt that I bought before they won the Super Bowl against The Patriots in 2008. I know, I know, I'm officially trading in my Giants gear this year and backing Aaron Rodgers Green Bay 100%, but still. Don't hate me, Erin.

2. Draft Coors Light! Listen. Draft beer is my favorite - I prefer it, and going to a bar that has CL Smooths on tap is a recipe for disaster. Or a lot of fun. Either one.

3. It's kind of hard to see, but #3 is my very first Jessica Simpson purse. I still have her, even though I have not used her in years. People referred to her as Jessica, and I could get up from my bar stool and say, "Please watch Jessica while I pee..." and no one thought twice about it.

4. $6.00 packs of cigarettes, y'all! Guys, I used to smoke. I quit almost five years ago, but in college, I couldn't imagine having a beer without also having a cig. And the fact that they sold them right at the bar? It just doesn't get better than that.

But the main reason why I love this photo? It was taken at my favorite bar that I frequented everyday every weekend when I first turned 21. It closed about 6 months after I started going there, but I'm still close with so many people I met there that I'm indebted to that townie bar forever.
