2 Chix in the Mix

Neyland Stadium

Just before dinner tonight we heard our doorbell ring.  My husband answered the door and it was a salesperson for a lawn maintenance company.  After relaying that we were not interested in services – although we probably need them – my husband closed the door and said “I’m not paying anyone to cut my grass.”  My response was “Why should we, we have a teenager!”  Then I realized we don’t have a teenager anymore.  Trey turned 20 on Sunday.  We celebrated his birthday tonight with family.  Work schedules in our family means nobody celebrates their birthday ON their birthday.  Such is life in our household.

Anyway, here’s the story of Trey’s cake.  Back in December he “ordered” the University of Tennessee Neyland football field for his cake.  As time went on he started adding different elements to the cake.  First the stadium seating – all 150,000 seats!  Then the field houses, Tennessee River and the Tennessee Volunteer Navy.  It became a joke as to how much he could think of to add to his order.

This is what he got.  Although, he said it wasn’t an accurate replica because there weren’t lines at each yard!  Can you believe it?  He wanted me to add 200 little hash marks on the sides of the field.   In the end he was pleased with his cake.
