I'm a little groggy today after staying up to watch the Super Bowl last night and having some friends over. But good times make a groggy Monday worth it! All I've got to say about the Super Bowl is that my heart was broken for the Broncos and I can't imagine the frustration they were probably all feeling, Bruno was THE MAN and I wish he would have gotten to perform longer, and a big shout out to Russell Wilson for giving God so much praise after the win last night. You go, sir!
|Can you tell Josh was pumped? You will also rarely find us in orange...|
but for the love of the Broncos, it had to be done.
I made seasoned pretzels last night for our party and holy wow...I had to refrain from eating the whole batch. I found the recipe on Pinterest and it will most definitely be my go-to for party snacks from now on. Here is the recipe I used, it really couldn't be simpler! You know who else liked my pretzels? Murphy...because he got the bag off the counter and started eating them...that dog!
I really wanted to do individual brownies in the shapes of footballs for the party but couldn't find a cookie cutter to allow me to do so, so I just cut them all in the pan I baked them in then took them out and arranged them on a plate and enlisted my husbands help in drawing the football with icing, I think it turned out pretty well! I should note that Murphy did not get ahold of these...he has consumed enough chocolate in that little body of his to last a lifetime...remember this story?
Our weekend was pretty low key. We had a new security system installed on Saturday and that evening we took my parents out for dinner. Sunday was the usual church service then we took Murph man for a walk because the weather was BEAUTIFUL...dare I say, Spring like?! Then we hit the driving range to hit a few balls and before we knew it we were back home waiting for the Super Bowl to come on.
Even though I would have enjoyed a few extra minutes of sleep this morning, Bruno Mars tickets went on sale for his Columbia concert and hubs and I bought them for our Valentines gift to each other...I can't wait to see him in June!!
In the next few weeks here on the blog you can expect a few recipes, a giveaway, and more home tours! It's hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that it's already February!
