Football, Food & Family...

I'm just now writing about our weekend. I've been having computer issues for a while, so that has hindered my blogging. I need a new computer badly. I'm afraid this one is going to bite the dust any day now.

Football season has arrived so that's what our Saturdays will consist of for many weekends ahead.

Amelia sounds so cute calling the Hogs. I will post a video soon. She can't say her "H" sound yet, so Hogs actually comes out as GO DOGS! She has the PIG SOOIE down though. :)

So if you're watching football - you gotta have food! I made this dip that Faith posted on her blog. It was really good! I went to the store to get all of the ingredients and having pregnancy brain - I forgot the scallions! They would have added even more flavor, so next time I'll make sure to put them on my list twice. That way I might remember them.

I also made frito chili pies. Because I love them with all my heart.

And for dessert I made Oreos and Reese's Peanut Butter Footballs. :)

Amelia was invited to a friend's birthday party on Saturday. Here she is mesmerized by Yo-Gabba-Gabba on the big screen. At one point they had music playing and she headed to the front of the room and just had to dance. She could care less that no one else was up there or that people were watching her. She certainly does not get that from me! She had a fun time.

Alex had a business dinner this evening, so Amelia and I had a dinner date of our own. I love going out to eat just the two of us. We went to Panera because I've been craving their french onion soup. We picked up CFA for Amelia because she told me she wanted nuggets, fries, and lemonade. Girl knows what she wants.

After dinner we walked over to Orange Leaf and had dessert. It was a fun night just me and my girl. I seriously love this kid.

We have family in town, so we have two family dinners this week. I'll be hosting one at my house. Joy and I will be trying some new recipes and that always excites me! If they're good - I'll share.

Love to all,

I've never seen Reese's footballs! Oh my goodness!! (Reese's are my favorite candy of all time) If I were on this whole MSPI diet, I'd be rushing out to find them STAT.

I'm so glad you're enjoying the start of the fall!!!

That dip looks so good, and I love your Hog sign! Did you make it? So cute!

Faith said...

Don't you two hog fans look darling?! I just can't get over how big A is getting. She's so fun!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

P.S. Still waiting to see pics of you and the bump ;-)

I love the sign with your name - so cute!

Reeses are my total weakness! LOVE the eggs, pumpkins, Christmas trees, and the footballs :-)
