Super Sunday!!!

On  the agenda around here for today.....


Yep, here it is - Super Bowl Sunday.  Everyone is busy preparing lots of yummy food for fantastic football-themed parties.....and I'm dragging out the vacuum and furniture polish and have the washer loaded!

Not that we don't like football around here!  After all, we live in West Texas - home of the Friday Night Lights.  We do love our football - but, mostly we enjoy the sport played at the high school and college level.  We rarely sit down and watch the NFL; and I can't say with any certainty that I have a team that I would dub "my team". 

So, the hustle, bustle and hype of today's game just doesn't get my adrenaline flowing.  I have no idea which team to root for; I had to ask my husband which two teams were even playing!  (And, I still don't know who to cheer for...)

However, the food associated with the festivities does peak my interest!  Wow, there are some awesome recipes floating around out there to be discovered and I'm busy "pinning" them this morning, like some sort of mad chef-wannabe.....

The Husband has to work til 9:00 this evening.  So, after I get this place in order, I've been invited over to a friend's for homemade tortilla soup and guacamole.  My mouth is already watering!  And, I'm sure the big game will be on the big screen when I get over there. 

So, here's to the Super Bowl and the great nibbling and snacking opportunities that it brings!!!! 

Go, Giants!!!  Go, Patriots!!!
(Did I get the teams right?????)

Loving Our New Woven Blinds......

Hey, ya'll!  Labor Day weekend is winding down.....hope yours has been great!!!
Mine was actually pretty busy.  Since Eddie Dale had to work all three days, I decided I would work, too - only I stuck around the house to do my work! 
I decided to go ahead and give the woven bamboo blinds I found at Home Depot a shot.  I've been eyeballing them online for weeks because the cost was only $16.97 each.  I simply hate the plastic 1-inch mini-blinds throughout our house - they are not cottage-y - at all! 
So, I ran out to the local store (their handy dandy website indicated they had thirteen 27"x72" shades in stock) and picked up enough to do the living room.  I really like the roman shade style and the way these filter the light, creating a nice soft ambiance in the room.  Although they are not completely private, they are fine in the living area.  Oh, and did I mention they are only $16.97 a window?!?!?  So reasonable, yet they give me the "look" I've been…

Super Bowl Sunday - What's for Supper!?!?!?

One of our favorite things to do when there's a big game on TV is make up a variety of "finger foods" to snack on during the evening.  Tonight's Super Bowl was no different and we went for some of our favorites - buffalo wings, sausage balls, pigs-in-a-blanket, and, of course, one of our old standbys,  this yummy spinach dip.

It's a tradition to have this creamy dip at least once during the holidays, but we rarely have it during the year.  So, it's a real treat!  It's delicious and rich; and the basic recipe makes a ton - we snack on it for days!  My favorite way to enjoy it - scoop it up with "hint of salt" wheat thins crackers.  Yum yum!!!
Most of you probably have this recipe down by memory.  But, in case you haven't tried it, I'm sharing it below.

Procrastinating on a Project

Sitting here, listening to the thunder and the pounding rain against the windows and wishing I had made good on my plans to clean out my closet today.

You see, I've been contemplating emptying my closet for months.  And I mean empty it completely!  Then reload with way fewer items.  Some call it a capsule wardrobe - that is a pretty popular term these days.  Others might say it a 'minimalist approach' to dressing.  Either way, it is something that has been wiggling around in my mind for some time. 

And yet, I continue to put the project off.  Why the blazes is that?  It's definitely something I want to do - downsize and simplify my wardrobe! 

The main reason is the sheer size of the project.  It is daunting, to say the least.  Perhaps even overwhelming.  I know it is probably going to take several hours and create a huge mess if I do it properly.  So, I start thinking about the process and begin to lose sight of the end result - which is a simpler wardrobe and less …
