26 Weeks...football & spicy pretzels!

I'm sure I have said this before, but football season is by far my favorite time of year! I love the game, I love the tailgating, I love how often I get to see my family, and I love the food! It also doesn't hurt that my birthday, Barry's birthday and now Sawyer's birthday are during football season too =)

Speaking of Sawyer, I am now past 26 weeks and she is now the length of a cucumber. I don't know about you, but I have never seen a 15 inch cucumber, but thats what my app says! She is moving ALL the time, especially early in the morning and in the evenings. Barry wakes up at 5 every morning for some reason, which is also when Sawyer has been waking up, so he gets to feel her moving around every morning...doesn't wake me up though! So much for her sleeping in...that was too good to be true!

Here I am at 26 weeks...Lori wanted to sit by me, but was not interested in looking at the camera at all!

Quite a brat.  Huge difference from when I was wearing this same shirt, different color, in my 6 week pictures!

After some shopping on Friday and a night at home we kicked off our football filled weekend on Saturday. We headed downtown, went to lunch and walked around some stores before heading to the UH vs UCLA game. This was the first non-Aggie game Barry and I had ever been too, but we had a good time and the game was great...we won!! It was too windy to take any pics (lame excuse) and Barry said his clothes were too wrinkled (lamer excuse), so this was all I got...


After that game, we came home, showered, packed and headed to College Station. We tailgated in the CRAZY wind all day Sunday (no pics again) and ate WAAAAAY too much. Barry ended up going to the game with my Dad, Michael and Brie, I hung out with my mom and a few other family members at the tailgate during the game. Sitting in a comfy chair with my feet up...yes please! They texted me quite a few pictures of the Barry & Brie photo shoot that went on during the game, but will spare Brie the embarrassment this week!


I think they had a good time...at least my Dad said he did because no one bothered him the whole game since the boys were busy driving Brie crazy!


One last thing...here is the recipe for the snack I took to the tailgate this week. I made it when we went to the beach over the summer and it was a hit then, and again this weekend. I got this recipe from Barry's mom so I can take no credit for the spicy pretzels!

1 large bag of pretzels
3/4 cup oil (I use canola...healthier than vegetable)
1 package dry Ranch dressing mix
3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garlic powder

Whisk oil and seasonings together, pour over pretzels and coat well. (I dump the pretzels into a large tupperware, pour the oil mixture on top, cover the container and tumble until all the pretzels are coated.)

Spread the pretzels onto a baking sheet and bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours stirring every 30 minutes or so.
ENJOY!
