What We've Been Up To......

The Walkers fall has been pretty booked up.  I think we may finally have a free weekend coming up in November, but don't hold your breath :)  The best part about staying busy though, is all of the fun things we have been doing. 

We took a trip to Asheville to see my cousin, Justin, tie the knot and do a little sight-seeing.

 A quick beer flight at Pack's Tavern.....

Our ride to the reception :)

Wedding cake and grooms cake-a NC State helmet, perfect for Justin!

Jimmy, Mom, William and I at "The Venue"-their reception site, so pretty!

AND-this past weekend, my friend Laura and I threw one of our favorite gals, Kelly, a "cowgirl" themed baby shower.  It turned out really cute and I know everyone had a great time.  Here are some pictures of all the details:

Party favors-haystacks, mints and cakepops!

Food table

"Hannah" game-guess what's in the bag (all baby related items)

Wishes for baby Hannah. Elizabeth filled out one, my favorite response was "I hope you respect..." her answer was: "My house" haha :)

Sweets table

Chocolate and regular milk "shooters"

We love you so much, Kelly!  Can't wait to meet baby Hannah and add another wonderful addition to our friendship family.  Can't believe she will be here so soon!  Good thing there is still so much love to give!  Can't believe it's almost November....I better start my Christmas list!!

Tailgate Time!

Tailgating is so much fun.  Delicious food, getting to see all of your friends, college football, cornhole, ice cold beer.....the list could just go on and on.  We are fortunate enough that our group all gets into theme-ing out the tailgate and we like for our spot(s) to look good-I think we've grown into about 6 total. 
And when I say good, I mean people can hardly stop themselves from asking for a bite of food or dropping their jaws when they see our amazing cornhole boards.  Seriously.  In fact, a kid dragged his mom back to our tailgate a few weeks ago asking for a pig in a blanket.  And not just any pig in a blanket, a pig in a blanket made with hebrew national hot dogs.  Class, people. 
So this past weekend we decided to do a "mini" theme-bite sized versions of our comfort food favorites.  Here's us on our way in along with some of the delicious treats from the tailgate! 
Sitting in traffic!

Mini Pizzas:

Mini caramel apple shots--super cool!

Mini tomato pies:

Here's some of the group excited about those caramel apple shots :)

Mini meatballs:

Mini burgers:

We really do have a lot of fun.  So next time your tailgating-stop by spot 422,  but keep in mind, you won't wanna leave. Rumor has it that the last tailgate before the 2012 election (October 27-Tennessee game)  there will be a "Bring your Best Dish" tailgate theme complete with voting (ballot boxes) and someone will be elected Tailgate President.  It's going to be awesome.  Promise :)
