Embracing a Healthy Family: Football!

Football!






I'm so excited as our family loves football! Mostly I love the Colts and the Patriots and yes, I admit that I am a Tom Brady fan but I prefer Peyton Manning for his football skills. In our house, we all have our favorite teams with my oldest daughter loving Brady but my husband is a Cowboys fan. So that leaves two little one's that get to root for whomever they are preferring at the moment which is usually whoever they are feeling closest to or if they are wanting something.


 

We started this tradition that every year, we get out our team shirts and wear them on the day of game play. We have even went so far to buy the rub on tattoos to match ...well, my husband didn't but my girls and I did.



The shirts I get are usually personalized with our names and they are the lookalike jerseys as the replicas are too expensive. This one shop on Ebay sells really nice shirts that appeal to girls (linked in the pictures at the top). The shirts are rhinestone and look really nice if you want that girly look.

Shindigz has great party supplies all in a theme so it makes it easier to plan. I like Shindigz as they are an Indiana company which is where I am from and lived up until becoming an Army wife. This year we are having a superbowl party so I'll be looking for all the cool and unique supplies.

Cookies by Design has great cookies to add to a football party:


Party 411 has really great invitations that look like ticket stubs. I'll probably make my own on Zazzle as I like to be creative.




The latest Kraft Food's magazine Food & Family has great ideas for game day gatherings. 

The Ritz Cheesy Football is so cute and since the cheese is shaped into a football, the men will love it!   They even have a recipe for a Jell-O football helmet.

The Game Day Football Cake is something that I'll try this year.

this party looks fun, but as a Steeler fan, I had to move quick over the Cowboys talk. :) Thanks for the ideas!
