It's tailgating time. Living in Wisconsin – and as a gal originally from Minnesota – you can only imagine the football season that's underway. A Vikings fan through and through (I know I might lose some readers with that admission...), I'm actually loving the friendly rivalry around these parts. It's especially great when you can sit down with someone from "across the field" with a nice cold one and just have a great conversation. About how good the beer is. Or how pretty the leaves are. Or when we think we'll get the first snow. Or ... well, you get it. Who am I kidding? It's best to just leave the football discussion out of it.

(How's your cooler holding up this tailgating season? Grab one of these for the cabin or the car to keep things cool.)
