lately: labor day weekend fun!

Another Labor Day weekend for the books! The hubs and I spent a fun weekend at home, full of activities – both indoors and out! We spent Saturday afternoon enjoying some wine at our favorite local winery, followed by dinner and cocktails out in the downtown area. Sunday was spent outside! – a great, new-to-us 7 mile hike, followed by a wine tasting nearby. The evening was spent out on the back porch; grilling, fire pitting, and roasting marshmallows! Monday was full of FOOTBALL – go hokies! Even though the outcome of the game wasn’t what we were hoping for, it was a fabulous day with fun and friends. Hope that y’all enjoyed yours! Here’s some snapshots of our adventures : )

superbowl snacks!

Are you ready for some football??

I must say, I am super excited! It took me quite some time to develop my love for the sport, but ever since college {go hokies!} I’ve been rather fanatical. On any given Sunday during the season, you’ll find the hubs and I curled up on the couch flipping between the games. I absolutely love it. And let’s not forget – the football food! Snacks galore, y’all.

As always, I try to balance the unhealthy with the healthy. So that means enjoying dips with crunchy vegetables instead of chips; spritzers and wine instead of the {oh-so} delicious dark beers that we love in our house; lightened up sweet versions. So with all that being said, I thought it would be fun to do a recipe round-up of what to prepare for the game!
