Links Of The Week

{University of Georgia Cheerleading Squad via.}
The first weekend of college football starts tomorrow and I’m glad because I know how excited my husband and our boys are to experience another fall season of the game.  Before we had kids, Scott and I would go to every UGA home game which is where we both went to college and met.  But now that we have 3 kids (one of them being an unpredictable 2 year old!), it’s rare that we can all go together and sit through a 2.5 hour game.  Here is a post from last year we got to go to sans kiddos.

What I have come to love about football season besides the actual game (even though I don’t always understand the rules!) is this: 

  • it marks the beginning of FALL (even though it’s still relatively hot here in Georgia for a couple more months)
  • almost every Saturday, it gives you a reason to get together with FRIENDS to watch the game on TV even if you can’t make it to the stadium
  • it gives you a reason to make yummy fattening TAILGATING RECIPES without the guilt
  • it is also not frowned upon to pop a beer, mimosa, or other COCKTAIL at noon in honor of game time
My favorite links of the week are going to have a football theme or 
a red/black/silver color theme (the bulldawgs color combo):
1.  I need this Olsen twins neon red piece to stand out in the crowd of fans.
2.  My next red lipstick purchase will be this one.
3.  Gridiron Punch is not for sippy cups.
4.  Cute ways to wear metallics.
5.  Tough girls (and little monsters) wear black perfume.
6.  Extreme tailgating truck.
7.  Grown men do wear makeup during football season.

8.  Nine tasty types of nachos for tailgating.

9.  My silver shadow look that I might pair with a red lip for game time.

Do you like football season?  Who is your favorite team and why?  Hope everyone has a fantastic Labor Day weekend!!
