Bowled Over: A Weekend Recap

I don't know about you but I am totally wiped out from the weekend.  I really think today should be a national holiday so we can all recover from too much food, beer and TV watching.  Anyway, I had a great, yet busy weekend. Friday night I went to dinner and a charity concert for the American Heart Association with my best friend.  It was so great to see her and catch up over good food and music.  Saturday I had an awesome 15 mile training run.  I tried a new trail that took me to Georgetown and back in my new kicks in record time.  I was thrilled.  I spent the rest of Saturday watching college basketball, hanging with my husband and making a few crafts for the Superbowl.  Rather than I buy a $15 tablecloth I painted this $2 tablecloth like a football field with Patriots and Giants end zones.  I also made this field goal post out of paper towel rolls and breadcrumb canister. I even made Wally (the Red Sox mascot) a little Pats uniform. Yesterday I cooked my heart out for the big game.  If you need any party food in the near future, this empanada recipe is fantastic and my husband proclaimed that he would like to marry this dip.  His words, seriously.
Getting the snack table ready.
Themed Foods as usual.  I used my favorite chili recipe and set up a fixins bar for our entree. 

These lobster sliders were a nod to my New England roots.  Where were you yesterday Jerrod Mayo?!?
Ugh, the football cake pops from H-E-double hockey sticks!  At least they tasted good. 
Wally got in on the action.
So did you party it up last night, or did you skip the Superbowl?  Overall I thought it was a pretty underwhelming game/commercial lineup.  My favorite commercial was the chocolate M&M commercial, and the new VW bug/dog weight loss one.  What was yours?

I'll have a new craft project, feature and outfits this week! Stay tuned.

I liked the commercial of the little boy running thru the house trying to find a bathroom. Hilarious!

Your party looks awesome! I wish had been there. The weight loss dog commercial was my favorite. Some days I feel like that chubby dog.

Cake pops don't have to look perfect--they're CAKE! That's all that matters. :)

All of these treats look so cute and delicious! I skipped the superbowl weekend since it really isn't celebrated in my country (Panama). Glad to see you enjoyed it though!
