Friday started out simply fabulous with a chili cook-off at work. Being that I’m not much of a kitchen connoisseur, I opted to be a judge.
Afterward it was time to go and prep for my dad’s birthday with assistance from my favorite pussy, of course.
Meanwhile in Iowa, my twins were busy making their very first homemade pizza.
And the reactions to the ooey gooey goodness were cheesier than the cheese on their pizzas.
Not only was Saturday my dad’s birthday, it was also an Iowa Hawkeye game day. My dad was so excited, he grew black and yellow hair overnight.
Being that my Hawks won big last week, I expected no less this week as Iowa scored first and we happily stuck to our moonshine touchdown tradition.
Little did we know, those seven points would be the only time Iowa would touch the scoreboard until the end very of the game. So to make things more interesting while watching our team get spanked, we celebrated a birthday…
….we stuffed our faces with my dad’s self proclaimed “best batch of ribs ever”….
… I whipped out the Whopper pie I make every year in honor of Dad growing one year older…
… and we did sympathy/birthday/just because shots, as losing a game as badly as we did (14-51) to a mediocre team at best is no fun sober.
While no sports fan wants to see their team to get their own asses handed to them, at least we were having some fun.
Here’s hoping your week is off to a more winning start than mine.
You know how to party that I already know but also having fun when your team loose, respect 🙂 ! Your father despite that had a great time and that’s what’s count !!
To me, having fun is really the only thing that matters! I mean, it is definitely better to win but we had a good time anyhow!
Ouch! Yeah, didn’t Iowa lose like 73-7 or something like that? At least yo had booze to ease the pain!
Oh yes, was beyond pitiful! The booze helped us lift our spirits as the game wore on….and on….and on…..
Aw oh my gosh, I think we just saw the source of all that CBXB fun!
Happy birthday to your dad. Those ribs look scrumptious, and I’m sure the twins made an awesome pizza. 🙂
I’ll pass the wishes along – my dad had a big time!
Those ribs look delicious! Nothing says happy birthday like Teddy claws in the birthday paper.
It’s Ted’s way of spreading his love!
Bummer about the Hawkeyes. But at least there was another reason to celebrate. The spread looks awesome. Especially them ribs!!!! You peoples really know how to take the fun stuff seriously. Which means not being very serious at all, if ya get me. Keep on keepin’ on CBXB.
Being too serious is gross! Well, maybe it isn’t gross but it’s just NO fun. Oh the ribs…! They were delish.
At least you had plenty of fun even though you lost, that is quite a football tradition, moonshine shots~ I hope that doesn’t catch on in the south, the football fans are crazy enough as it is!! Your Dad looked like it was the best birthday ever!
Thanks Jenna! I’m sure the shot thing won’t catch on in the south because SEC football is too high scoring for shots every touchdown!! 🙂
Looks amazing! I love the pink in your hair! xxx
Thanks Girlfriend! You can never go wrong with pink!
Those best ribs ever sure would make that whuppin’ easier to take, I’d say. Wow do those look tasty! Great birthday for pops despite the Hawkeyes forgetting that the game lasts longer than the first drive, CBXB. 🙂
I’ll be sure Dad makes the ribs next year when we’re all ‘tailgating’ together!
