Friday Football Round-Up

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. The leaves are changing. Mornings are crisp, begging you for a run. Afternoons are pleasant, perfect for nice long walks with my favorite Kiwi.

But most importantly, fall is the best because it means football is back!

Being from the south and an alum of a school where football is king, life has always been just a bit more exciting in the fall. Lots of travel to away games, lots of planning and cooking for tailgates, and lots and lots of friendly trash talk. {Unless of course you’re a Tennessee or Florida fan in which case, it’s not that friendly.}

Of course, this weekend is really a double whammy–Labor day weekend and the football kick off. So today I’ve rounded up some great recipes, crafty tailgate decor, and precious game day dresses {because in the South we dress up for football games} to get you in a celebrating mood.

Enjoy the long weekend and GO DAWGS!

My weekend project. These pillows would really class up a place.

Build your own corn hole set. {Bean bag toss for the uninitiated. It’s not what you’re thinking.}

This cutting board would be perfect.

Some precious {free} printables.

but seriously, I may or may not be ordering this one.

…and maybe this one too.

from our archives:

You could throw these blue cheese burgers on the grill.

I shall call these tiger tails, and they shall be destroyed. {too intense?}

You could also give these maple baked beans a whirl.

Need something sweet? Try the strawberry margarita cupcakes.

…or the salted caramel and apple pies. Nom!

from around the web:

Healthy brownies? Stick some raspberries on top and they’ll be yelling Go Dawgs!

Not so healthy puppy chow.

…or this slightly healthier version.
