Hey, you win some…you lose some!
Despite a disappointing loss from my Jets yesterday, our crew still managed to have a good time. :)
The ride down to the stadium encouraged the opening of the TJ’s peanut butter pretzels I’ve been holding onto for almost a month and a half now…
I don’t anticipate these being around much longer now…HOLY YUM-O! :-P
Once we got down to the game, the weather was still dry so we hung out and did a little tailgating (my favorite!)
I promise Joe & Kate…I mean that in the BEST way possible! ;)
Normally when my family goes down to Jets games, we like to really get into the tailgating; coolers packed, snacks stashed, and the grill smokin’! Unfortunately, since the forecast was calling for bad weather, we decided to keep things simple by packing some snacks and picking up some subs on the way.
These chip’ins popcorn chips from Popcorn Indiana may seriously be one of my new favorite snacks. I already loved their kettle corn, but after picking these up at the store, I think they may take the cake. They’re light, salty, and totally unique in texture. Two thumbs up from me! :)
I also ordered a bomb-diggity sub of honey smoked turkey & provolone with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles & honey mustard. YUM!
And of course, what December 12th football tailgating would be complete without some Christmas cookies? I munched on two of my M&M chocolate chip cookies while chatting away.
Unfortunately, the longer we were sitting outside, the wind started to pick up and it started to get rather chilly. I noticed my Raynaud’s disease kickin’ in…
…so I decided to start with the layering! The general consensus after all layering was complete was that I looked like a linebacker. Hey, you think they’ll hire me?
About an hour and a half before game time, we made our way up and into the stadium. I must say, the new Jets stadium is pretty impressive!
To ensure that my poor little fingers were toasty warm, I made sure to pack up all my hand warmers I’ve acquired over the years; hand warmers make great stocking stuffers for me! ;)
They worked like a charm!
Luckily, it didn’t rain for the entire game – probably only about half of it. We all agreed that the weather definitely could have been worse, and that we all had a great time…even if only two out of four of us could claim “victory.” ;)
I’m pretty excited for tonight…I’m going to be heading over to my parents’ house to “borrow” their kitchen so I can “host” my Nasoya “Wrappy Hour” party!
A couple months ago, I was chosen as one of the lucky hostesses from Nasoya and was given a goody bag of some great products to use.
I’ve never ventured into using anything with won ton wrappers or anything like that, so it should be interesting!
But for now, I’m off to work! Hope you all have a Marvelous Monday ahead of you!!
