Football Wife - Tami Taylor, Watch Out

"54 days till football season."
Those were the first words I heard the other morning from my sweet, sweet husband. 
Good morning to you to my dear.

Wee wittle babes.

Football is a big deal in our house. 
Schedules and budgets revolve around football games.
Once upon a time, I wanted to have a fall wedding. 
But was quickly told that could never happen.

We recently got rid of cable.
Which means we got rid of our ginormous sports package. 
It hasn't been a big deal so far, however fall is quickly approaching 
and I can feel Robbie's anxiety rising at the thought of missing some game on ESPN.

Don't get me wrong...I love it and couldn't imagine our lives any other way.
Our "football family" are some of the best friends we have.
And the Saturdays we spend tailgating are too fun for words.

Plus, there's something totally hot about seeing Robbie so passionate about something.
He literally lights up anytime he talks about a game or a play or a team or something else I don't always understand.
But his passion for it is probably one of my favorite things, and one of the things that makes me love it so much too.
Well that and all the delicious tailgating food.

The obsession is about to take on a whole new meaning as we kick it up a notch in the Dunn household.

Robbie got a job!
And not just a job, the job.
The job we prayed for and wanted for him, without even really knowing we wanted it.

He'll be teaching high school American History at a school about 35 minutes from our house.
And he'll be coaching football.
So many dreams come true.
Because you see, as passionate as Robbie is about football, he's equally passionate about History.
That same light comes on his eyes anytime he talks about it.
After all the struggles that we've been through these past few years, and after all the hard work I've watched Robbie put into this, I am so proud to finally see him doing something that he not only loves, but is called to do.
He is going to be an amazing teacher to those students, both on and off the field and I could not be prouder.

I also don't hate the fact that I am one step closer to fulfilling my dream of becoming Tami Taylor. ;)


  1. I'm so excited for Robbie's good news! Congratulations! I know you can breathe a sigh of relief!

  2. I love that you all love football as much as I do!! ;) And CONGRATS to Robbie's new job... that is my husbands dream, no lie. Teaching history and coaching football!

  3. Yayyyy Robbie! So glad he got the position and that he gets to coach! And you already know my feelings when it comes to football, arrrghhhhh :)
