Football Friday (finally)!

Although I'm sure most of us root for different teams, can we all just mutually agree that its SO exciting football is back!??!?! Although my team lost its last two preseason games... I don't even mind. Seeing those uniforms back on the field makes me SO giddy! I'm linking up with the most beautiful sister-in-love ever, and you should too! Erin didn't really give us a prompt for this linkup, and I kind of love that. ANYTHING goes! So, I'm going to list LOTS of things that I love about football, both past and present!

One of my favorite memories was when we went with our best friends (isn't it cool when you can say that about family?!) to watch the Bengals beat down on the Titans in Fall of 2011! It was such a fun weekend, and the fact that we won was just the icing on the cake!

Another fun tradition is staying IN to watch the game. Lots of folks buy season tickets (which hey, is amazing, and if I had that kinda cash I'd do that too!), but there's something awesome about staying in, everyone hanging out together on one giant couch, eating whatever we want and having a blast... then going outside after a win during a brisk, Fall evening, and tossing around some football!

Did I mention we TOTALLY believe in superstitions!? ;)


But lets be honest...other than the game, what do I love most about Sundays? THE FOOD. I plan to make as many treats as possible this Fall, especially on Sundays. I'll be working my tail off ALL season long with practically two full time jobs, edits, and church volunteering...oh, and maintaining a social life! So I think a few carbs each Sunday are well deserved.

  3. Lovin the pictures! I'm a Vikings fan & while we've won both of our pre-season games so far I still don't hold any stock in it. Pre-Season means nothing...however it is pretty exciting that my team is winning some games ha. We aren't even in the same conference so...GOOD LUCK TO YOUR TEAM!

  11. Colts fan here, and really ready for football to start up! We are really superstitious too - we won't put our feet on the floor during the games or change positions if we're playing well...my husband thinks we're crazy, but he is starting to play along! :) Best of luck to your Bengals!
