The Football Halls...

As you all I'm sure are aware, we take football time pretty seriously in Tennessee. This was the first game for us as Newlyweds, and because we are lame, we took pictures ;)

Food. Food is oh so important. We tried to go a little healthy with some of my homemade hummus and veggies. So pretty!


Course, then we ramped it up a bit with a garlic and parsley cheeseball and crackers, and habanero jelly. The Hammontrees love a cheeseball, y'all.



Natalie makes a killer Mexican dip--layered refried beans, salsa, sour cream, red bell peppers and onions, cheese, and of course, jalapenos, artfully arranged into the Power T by John! Very nice, dude.

Not pictured are the meatballs in sweet mustard pepper sauce, and Ryn's Buffalo Chicken dip. Also missing are the Dark Chocolate Orange Cream Cheese Brownies, because, well, we ate them, and it wasn't pretty. We tend to over do it (I know you're all shocked) when it comes to the food, and EVERY SINGLE TIME, we swear next week we'll scale back. So far, it hasn't happened.

As for the decor, well, we took it easy this week. The season is just getting started, afterall.

If you're gonna be obsessive fans, do it all the way.



Lil' Smokey watches from the hearth. We have a big Smokey too.


Notice the cups, koozies--hey,even the soda is orange, baby. We are deducting points from Natalie for having no Tennessee apparel on. She promises to do better next time.


Out come the UT thows, and the bandanas for the puppies. You can see it, but my big orange cat there? His toenails are orange. And we're just getting started. GO VOLS, y'all. Go Vols.

Oh hush. :) That was a commercial during the local pre-game special we were watching. Maybe I should have theme clothes for all the TV shows we watch? We had themed food for Lost one time...

i don't think i can let adam look ar your blog or else we're going to have to start getting a bit more themed up in carolina blue around here. at our old house, the kitchen AND bathroom were painted carolina blue (i let him pick the colors, of course). he feels it's just sinfull to watch a unc game if you're not in appropriate attire and was disappointed in my very black shirt i wore to the game saturday. i'll try and do better...

Our current kitchen is orange, believe it or not, although it's not really Tennessee orange, it's sort of an orangey pumpkiny peachy thing. I can get forgiveness for a black shirt on gameday, but only if I wear my orange cowboy hat ;) I love football season!
