So…. the football game. Yeah… that wasn’t pretty. I thought the Noles were starting to bounce back and show some of that fighting power in the third quarter, but they definitely lost that spirit in the fourth quarter and just plain gave up. Sigh. Oh, well. I still love my Noles and will stand by them no matter what the score is.
And, can I just say Go Notre Dame!!! I’m really excited they’ll be in the National Championship game! Go Fighting Irish!
We kept it low key for the game. Derek and I wore our garnet and gold with pride, and my brother and sister-in-law came over for beer and food.
I had a Publix cob salad before the game.
(with an Octoberfest beer)
And nibbled on some chips and cheese dip while riding the emotional roller coaster of the game.
My dad and I made a chicken and sausage white chili based off of the recipe in the Publix flyer this week.
Neither of us had ever made white chili before, but we both really enjoyed how it came out. It was nice and creamy, but not over the top. I would make it again. And, if you have a Publix where you are, I would suggest grabbing a flyer and checking the recipe out.
I meant to blog last night, but ended up crashing right after the game. I woke up on the couch at 11:00 and forced myself to walk upstairs and go to bed. I slept in this morning and decided to take advantage of the last day of the holiday weekend by declaring it a rest day.
It’s a rare morning where a fire in the fire place makes sense in Florida.
My dad made homemade coffee cake.
And I made a plain yogurt/blueberry/ pear mix to go with it.
My parents brought home their Christmas tree yesterday. We’re going to help them decorate it before finishing off our wedding to-do list for the weekend.
I’m still not sure if we’re going to put a Christmas tree up at home. We have a pretty busy December ahead of us, and with all the wedding stuff I’m not sure I have it in me to put decorations up for the season. I think we may skip our decorations this year and just enjoy everyone else’s instead.
Thoughts? Any other December/ January brides have any advice?
