First, it WAS a weekend, so I watched lots of college football.
In fact, I invited some college kids over to watch the Michigan/Michigan State game WITH me. You know you can't watch football without football food so - - -
Look at these fun things I found to SERVE the food on. Football plates and gridiron napkins!!! How fun are these?
And - - -
Football Little Debbie's brownies. No party could be complete without these, could it???
We also had chips and dip, queso with chips, and pizza.
Michigan State won - - - in case you didn't find that out on your own.
My Badgers also beat Minnesota - - - in case you needed to be told THAT too.
Oh, and for all my southern friends, Alabama beat Kentucky too!
All in all, it was a GREAT football weekend.
Then today - - - - the HIGHLIGHT of my weekend - - - something I've been looking forward to for OVER a month - - - have I built up the suspense enough yet????
Kristin from "The Goat" came to Marion SPECIALLY to visit with me!!!! We met for lunch at Culvers.
Then I brought Kristin here to my home, where she met Brunhilda and Borris Bearsaltandpepper. Brunhilda was on her BEST behavior and didn't bite Kristin or anything!!!
I can't say as much for the behavior of Teddybear Toiletpaperholder in the bathroom, I'm afraid he forgot his manners and scared Miss Kristin half to DEATH when she went in there!
In spite of all the unBEARable things around here, we managed to sit in my family room and have a lovely chat for about an hour and a half before Kristin needed to head on up the road toward Michigan.
Before she headed out, Kristin showed me her car, and I'd say she was LOADED FOR BEAR herself!!! Of course, she IS going to Michigan for a month - - - but just look at all the STUFF she's taking!!!
She's got everything in there BUT the kitchen sink, at least I didn't SEE a sink, though I DID see the dish towels she plans to USE at her mother's kitchen sink!!!
She even brought her OWN pottery dishes and a glass to USE while in Michigan. I asked her if her mom was short of dishes - - - to which she replied, "nope, I just like to use mine, I LIKE my dishes."
She's just a fun kinda gal like that!
Then she hopped in her car, waved good-bye and headed on up the road.
Kristin, thank you SOOO much for making me a part of your travels today!!! It was soooo fun to meet you live and in person.
