{life} weekend recap + confetti pasta salad

Oh my. This weekend was fabulous.

First came the Corey Smith and Tyler Reeve concert.

Roommates. <3
Old roomies, kinda.
COREY.
This video is horrible quality, but you can see how close to the stage I was. :)

Then it was time for some FSU FOOTBALL!

I ran into my great grand-big & Jacki at the Unconquered statue!!
Tailgating fun!
84,000 strong.
Student section craziness:

The game was ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. I will definitely remember attending that game for the rest of my life. It was the loudest I have ever heard the stadium.. even louder than the FSU v. UF game last year.

“It was just loud, I couldn’t hear anything, especially down there when we were in their student section,” Jones said. “I called some plays six or seven times, and I still don’t think the guys heard me.” 
ESPN article.

Mission accomplished student section. :)

We may have lost but it was a hard fight. I couldn't be any prouder of my team.

Oh and want a really easy pasta salad recipe? I made it for the tailgate an hour before I left for campus.
