    Hi Jenna – I’m so ready to cheer – GO TEAM! Love this! Hugs, Holly

  5. Here we go again…thinking with that same brain!!!! I guess we’re both feelin’ that football spirit this week!

    Man oh man, you came up with a lot of good (and easy!) nibbles for the game!!! I’m going to have to try to make that Hissy Fit Dip just because of the name! ๐Ÿ™‚ (I didn’t know other people actually use that term!)

    I went to my very first ever college football game this past Saturday. Lincoln University Tigers vs Langston Blue Tigers. The game was played at our NFL stadium here. It was fun. Different because the rules of college football are a little different and there are no challenges on calls, but still…fun! I even bought pom-poms in Lincoln’s school colors for my Mom, my sister and myself to take to the game and cheer on my Mom’s alma mater!

    FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Wow, you got in the spirit all right! Football is so much fun, though we much prefer the comfort of the big screen and a group of friends in the Man Cave rather than the hustle and bustle of actually going to the game! Easier to sip and nibble too ๐Ÿ™‚
