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?

Football watching requires lots of piggy things…

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

And maybe some Pistachio Pigs

Oh and you definitely want to up your game with Brown Sugar Bacon Bundles

  1. Yay to football! Jenna, what a great assemblage of, no doubt, fan faves! The runner is so perfect, and the foods, esp
    that pigskin hot dip, look so good! Thanks for sharing. I love this type of party style.

  2. Jenna, you know how to throw a football party…love the popcorn bar! Our team certainly won big last night, they got off to a slow start but once they got their rhythm the Tide Rolled! RTR. Wishing you a wonderful Labor Day!

    Happy Labor Day weekend Jenna!

  4. Roll Tide Roll! What a great start to football season! I love your front door….how cute! Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day weekend. I’m still trying to get my house in order from the moving in and out of college daughters.

  5. I think my comment might have disappeared. First of all, Happy Labor Day Weekend and Roll Tide Roll! What a great game and start to football season. I love your door decoration! So cute!

  6. Oh, this looks more fun than anything! Enjoy!

    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!

    My team doesn’t play until Monday night, so I was totally relaxed over the weekend! Snacks are nearby and ready to go!

  9. Woo-Hoo for football season! Happy Labor Day Jenna-enjoy:@)

    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!
