A cool, rainy Saturday calls for snuggles, chili and college football. There were some good Texas rivalries to watch so we stayed in our pjs all day and relaxed. After a busy week it was much needed and I can't think of anything more Texan or Fall than good football.
Texas/ OU weekend has always been a big deal in our family since we live in Texas but my family is from Oklahoma. When I was little we had neighbors who were huge UT fans so every year we would toilet paper their house with Crimson and Cream and hang sings on their fence saying things like "Honk if you love OU because we do!" We all thought it was hilarious but if the Longhorns won you could expect a little payback. It was normally in the form of drunken UT fight song singing (screaming) in our front yard at 2am but one year they outdid themselves and put cow manure in our yard, spray painted orange and in the shape of a T.
It's almost like a holiday weekend over here but since we were out of town last week we wanted something a little more laid back so we made chili and I came up with a new concoction that I call a Sparkling Caramel Apple. Here's what I did… I rimmed a champagne glass with caramel dip then poured Brut champagne 2/3 of the way full. I filled the rest of the glass with apple cider and tossed in an apple slice. Delish!
It was also just cool enough to put Boston in this furry bear suit I bought him from H&M. It was one of the first things I purchased for him and I remember thinking how I couldn't wait to cuddle with him in it. Dustin on the other hand thought it was ridiculous and begged me to return it but I didn't and it's a good thing because he couldn't stop laughing about how cute B looked. The color I purchased is sold out but you can find other colors here.
Sunday we did a lot of the same. Relaxing. Eating leftover chili (which I swear is better the second day). And watching football. Eventually everyone got a little cabin fever so we took a quick walk before the Cowboy game. And somehow we ended up pulling off a win against last years Super Bowl champs making us 5 and 1. I still can't believe it!
And last but not least, I finally found leggings that don't give you a muffin top… I don't care how thin you are, most leggings are not very flattering around the waist area. These are awesome and they have a fold down band that covers your booty if your shirt isn't quite long enough. You can find them for under $10 here.
