are you ready for some football?!

I love football.

If you know me, you know that.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that.

I am a Denver Broncos fan.

I have been my entire life.

I grew up in Colorado…lived there for 30 years.

So, while I live in the Pacific Northwest, where everybody else is cheering for the Seahawks, we will be united in orange at our house on Sunday!

When I was in Colorado for the baby shower I stocked up on Denver Bronco gear for the whole family!

Our outdoor chalkboard needed to be updated, so I went with a vintage Denver Bronco theme.

Leftover decorations from the baby shower gave me a jumping off point for the Super Bowl…we’re just having a few friends over, but MY team is playing so I have to go big.

They look red in this photo, but these Chuckie T’s are bright orange. I love them. AND, Zappos got them to me in less than 24 hours! Amazing service.

Of course, this gave me an excuse for fun crafting…felt football and pennant garland!

No orange and blue to be found in the Pacific Northwest, so I ordered it. Guess where it shipped from? OMAHA! OMAHA!

Pigs in a blanket are ready to be cooked on game day!

Lorelai and I even made some Denver Bronco shrinky dinks…I may make some more to add to the football bead necklaces I ordered.

Today I finished out bulletin board decorations and made a Super Bowl Snackadium (search for “snack stadium” on Pinterest to find ideas on how to put one together…I was not able to do a tutorial as this was trial and error that worked out)…to be filled with snacks on Sunday!

I love to sew paper garland…it was the first thing I sewed on my sewing machine. I also used paper straws and cupcake liners for one of the garlands!

Penalty flags made from lollipops wrapped in yellow cocktail napkins will be a treat for our younger crowd…and probably some fun for the older crowd, too!

home is…getting ready for the big game.





did i mention…?

That I LOVE football!

Mostly, teams from Colorado.

Specifically, the Denver Broncos.

Did you watch the game yesterday?!

I was jumping up and down screaming at the end.

Scared my kids.

To be honest, I was in the bathroom during the first play of overtime. I could hear the announcers on the TV through the wall and knew I was missing something big, but I heard nothing from the little guy and Ryan who were right in front of the TV.

They weren’t watching.

They were doing something on the iPad.

Are you kidding me?!

Thank goodness for our DVR!

Ryan pressed rewind and I watched it all.


You’d better believe that I have our Denver Bronco flag flying outside our house.

Here’s a little joke I read recently from friend (and fellow Bronco fan) on Facebook:

Tom Brady, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God
was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded
Patriots flag in the window. “This house is yours for eternity Tom, said
God. “This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here.” Tom felt
special, indeed, and walked up to his house.

On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the
corner. It was a huge 3-story mansion with Orange and Blue sidewalks and
drive ways, a 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous Broncos logo flag
waving, a swimming pool in shape of a horse, a Broncos logo in every
window, and a Tim Tebow jersey on the front door.

Tom looked at God and said “God, I’m not trying to be ungrateful, but I
have a question. I was an all-pro QB, I won 3 Super Bowls, and I even
went to the Hall of Fame.”

God said “So what’s your point Tom?”

“Well, why does Tim Tebow get a better house than me?”

God chuckled, and said “Tom, that’s not Tim’s house, it’s mine.”

I’m hoping for a better turn out than our last game against New England. One thing is for sure, this team is not lacking enthusiasm…

home is…a diehard Bronco fan.
