Holidays, Happy Labor Day & Psst, It’s Football Season!

My prayers to those affected by Hermine and the Pacific storms.  We were lucky and only had a couple of hours of rain from the outer bands on Thursday, and have been enjoying hot sunshine on the Gulf coast.  Fingers crossed hurricane season will be mild this year.

Okay, what’s the best thing about Labor Day weekend?

A last summer getaway?

Time with friends and family?

The beginning of fall?

Football watching requires lots of piggy things…

You’re going to need a good dip, like this Pigskin Tailgate Dip

    You guys really go all out! Ray was totally in hog heaven yesterday and last night. I binge-watched another Aussie soap opera I have gotten hooked on. Just not a football girl. I could definitely get into some of that food, though!

    Happy Football Season and Labor Day Jenna! Love your pigskin round-up and team pride. I know you were celebrating Saturday night couldn’t help but feel a pang of sympathy for USC when I saw the final score 🙂 Hope you’re enjoying some fun in the sun today!
