super bowl food & fun

so obviously i had a really great time at our super bowl party. :) not just because my team won, but also because we had some really great friends over & some seriously delicious grub! 

here's my little family in our green & gold ~ i am wearing the bart starr jersey my dad gave me back in the day... because it was his originally, i think it's one of the greatest gifts he's ever given me. i love it :)

*p.s. although i look slightly stoned here, i swear i am not, but i will admit the eyes might have been vodka induced!*

don't you think izzy was sooo cute in her little jersey? :) this pic was from my phone, and i put a filter on it in case you're wondering why it's totally different than the rest. 

before our friends arrived, i completed the green bay bar menu on my new chalkboard. i just did this as a diy project, so i will share the deets on it in an upcoming post! i cropped out the frame just to tease you. :)

for the food we had a delicious little menu:

~ turkey burgers & veggie burgers grilled by the mister, plus his famous guacamole :)

~ pulled bbq chicken cooked by chef ray rey

~ spicy spin dip made by the spades

~ a lovely adult lunchables spread... seriously i love these things!

~ fresh strawberry, banana, and pineapple fruit screwers made by yours truly

red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting... i added some green sprinkles in an attempt to make them more green bay, but in the end they looked like christmas. oh and don't judge me by my icing skills ~ i am working on it. :) these were out of the box so i can't really take too much credit, but i did bake them.

and finally the last item on the menu was my dessert #1 for the year. strawberry pretzel salad. i never made it at christmas, so i was super excited to have a chance to make it for the game. i'll do a post on this  soon because there were some things i learned while baking this, and not to toot my own horn, but everyone did seem to like it! :)

overall it was a fun day, and i am so happy the pack won!! thanks everyone who rooted for them on my behalf :) i promise to return the favor when needed!!

hope you're having a great week.

Ashley said...

Hey.. I just found your blog and it's cute. I'm a steelers fan so I was a bit sad but its true-- life revolves around football. I couldn't live without it!
