Monthly Rewind - October {Iron Bowl Ticket Giveaway}

Saturday, November 1, 2014

October was fun filled! I started the month in Munich, went to the Southern Food Bloggers Retreat, saw Bon Qui Qui in concert, Alton Brown in concert and went on the Bon Appetit Grub Crawl in Nashville. I'll be sharing all about the Grub Crawl on the blog very soon.

November is a big month for us. We have an exciting trip planned, Thanksgiving with the family and the Iron Bowl! For those of you not familiar with college football, that is the Auburn-Alabama game. It is a really big deal. Tickets are super hard to get. 

Do you need tickets? 
Well, you are in luck! We are giving away two Iron Bowl Tickets!!!

Our official hashtag was #Blogyall - LOVE it!

I had my friend, Jamie, make some Plain Chicken cake pops to give to everyone. 
I am dying over the cuteness. Dying!
You can see all her pops and order your own at Jamie's Sweet Revenge.

Kim Box Photography
The super talented Kim Box, from Kim Box Photography, gave us tons of great camera and food styling tips. I learned a ton!
She also took headshot photos for each of us. She did an amazing job. I loved all of my photos!

I was thrilled that my friend, Jennifer from Bake or Break, came all the way from New York City for the retreat. It was great to get to catch up!

This was the table setting for dinner our last night at the retreat.
Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?!?!
The tablescape was done by Evan Cooper
I want to have a party so he can decorate it for me!

I had a fabulous weekend with everyone. It was worth all the jet lag! 
I am already looking forward to next year!

Powell & Mahoney
The nice folks at Powell and Mahoney ( sent us some of there Bloody Mary mix. We are in LOVE with the sriracha and chipotle mixes. SO good!
These are perfect for tailgating or holiday parties.

Have you played Heads Up! ?
It is SO much fun!
You put your phone on your forehead, 
and your friends give you clues to guess the word on the phone screen. 

Download it in the App Store - it is only $0.99 and worth each and every penny!

We went to a dinner party and this was the signature cocktail.
Our friend, Melanie, created it and it is delicious!
We will be having these during the holidays!!

Apple Pie Martini
one part vodka 
2 parts apple cider
2 parts ginger ale

Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice, shake and strain into a glass.

Stephanie, from Grinning Like an Idiot, painted this amazing picture of Jack for me.
She captured him in his favorite spot - sitting in the catnip!
I absolutely LOVE the painting. Stephanie is SO talented.
If you are interested in your own pet portrait, you can get quotes from her website:
They would make a great Christmas present!
