Big Game Mexican Bacon Cheeseburger Dip

This weekend is my husband’s favorite weekend of football… the great 8 as he calls it.  This time of year is spent with a lot of games on our TV and lots of yummy football food.  As we prep for the Big Game and the gathering of family and friends there are a few things that make party hosting easier.  Of course everyone is looking for great food, but when you’re planning a party you know more is involved.

Here’s one of our family’s favorites… Mexican Bacon Cheeseburger Dip.

For My Peeps Valentine Smores Printable

Happy Sunday Friends!  I’m so excited to be joining some great blogging friends for a Valentine’s Blog Hop.  Today I’m sharing a cute Valentine’s Printable.  When I came across these cute heart shaped Peeps a few weeks ago while shopping I knew I needed to make some sort of Valentine’s goodie with them… so why not use them for a Valentine’s Day S’more Treat Bag!

Valentine Pillow ~ Burlap and Ribbon Heart

Happy Monday Friends!  I’ve got a confession…. I’m not a huge Valentine’s decorator.  I’d rather bake the Valentine goodies and do a craft with my kiddos, but I will throw a few Valentine decor items into the mix.  This year I made a sweet Valentine pillow from one of my favorite fabrics ~ burlap and sweetened it up with a red ribbon with a dotted line.

Burlap and Ribbon Valentine's Heart Pillow.

I stitched up this little burlap pillow by hand.  If you’ve been around my blog for long you know I’m not much of a seamstress and if this had been fabric other than burlap I would have hot glued it together.  Our machine is out of commission at the moment… so hand stitching it was.
