Are You Ready for Some FOOTBALL ???

I was ... until the Cowboys disgusting loss on Sunday night. I guess my 'boys are back ... in the same style as last year. How lovely. How fun.

Today we are having a football themed potluck at work. We have them a few times a year, but this is the first this year. I got lazy. I am typically the hostess for these events and I don't know why. Probably because they are not super fun to organize ... trying to get a sign up sheet going and then sending out reminders. Set up and clean up ... OMG.  I started them when I first came here, because I had done them at my other job in Dallas.... and they caught on. I tried to hand it off to someone else in my group, but nothing doing. I am stuck with the honor! :)  ... so I theme them the way I want too- and this one was FOOTBALL.

So what better thing to bring for fall, football, etc. than my grandma's chili?

How to tote such a thing into the office? Crockpot!

What kind of crockpot?


I KNOW. How cute is HE? I lurve him. One of my prized possessions.

I love the football lid.

and I love the little football nob.

As you can see it's made by Rival. I have never been able to find another one. I wanted to see if I could find one for other people - you know, gifts. I've looked- online and different places. I didn't even know they made themed crockpots but I love mine. Can't find another one!

Even though the Cowboys promise a disgusting, hate-filled season ... I am ready for some football. Along with it comes fall, college football, cooler weather, sweatshirts, Halloween, lazy movie Saturday's, cuddles with my dog ... so I am looking forward to it!
