Hostess with the Mostess®This is one mega awesome, very boy-ish party, that will make you the coolest mom ever!  ;) I have to admit that I am pretty unfamiliar with Halo (Mom of 2 little girls over here!), but Lori of Littlebeane Boutique designed a Halo Themed Birthday Party that pretty much looks like the ULTIMATE party for her 11 year old birthday boy! Basically, if you’re little Master Chief is a Halo fanatic, well then, he’s GOT to see this! PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:– “Spartan-tacular” Favor Bags + Burlap Silkscreened Halo Sacks – UNSC Lollipops, Cortana Popcorn & Jelly Bean Halo Grenades – Confidential “Top Secret” Mission Birthday Invitation – Camouflage Cupcakes with Spartan Figure Toppers*****PARTY DETAILS, as told by Lori… ;As with the last Godzilla Party I had for Jack, this theme was very difficult! There were no Halo party supplies to buy out there, so I had to design custom graphics and create everything myself! We went with a military/camo theme.I made the invitations, banner, cupcake toppers,water bottle labels, candy bar wrappers, table signage and table print and stickers to match the theme. I made candy coated popcorn and camouflage cupcakes. I had custom cookies made by Lori from Lori’s Place Gourmet Delights. They were designed with the Halo logo and my son’s age in the middle. There were bags of jelly beans done in the camo colors and there were called “Halo Grenades” plus we had UNSC Lollipops and  Toxic Waste Candy. The kids also got “bomb bags” that would explode when they threw them! The kids had such a great time and then the surprise of the night… we had the “Rocket Car” come and take the kids for a ride through the town! The kids had such a blast!*****VENDOR CREDITS:– Concept & Styling: Lori of Littlebeane Boutique  – Cookies: Lori’s Place Gourmet DelightsHostess with the Mostess®

If you read our food posts regularly, you probably know that we simply love snack foods and sweets, so of course we exploded with happiness when we saw Food Beast's newest recipe that combines SpaghettiOs, Velveeta and Goldfish Crackers into an amazing, cheesy and tomato-ey cupcake creation. Hopefully you will dig these sweet, salty savory snacks just as much as we do and maybe we can even have John do a taste test soon. While these look fantastic, I do think they missed out on one great opportunity by not garnishing these bad boys with a Flamin' Hot Cheeto for a spicy, crunchy kick.

Step right up folks!  You are about to enjoy the super fun nuptial spectacle of Kelley and Larry!  There’s fun and games!  Tears and smiles!  There’s dazzling DIY and photos you’ll have to see to believe!    Is there really a need to say anything more!?  Well maybe just that every last detail of this whimsical vintage carnival makes me giddy with delight!  Anda Photography has certainly won a prize for capturing a perfect blend of whimsy and home sweet style that only Kelley and Larry could create. Kelley’s super cute dress was a bridal consignment find that with a few alterations (like chopping off three feet of skirt or so) created a perfectly vintage-esque frock.  To combat her allergies, Kelley tackled some beautiful paper blooms and bouts that complimented the bright and cheery carnival atmosphere perfectly.  Kelley’s no trickster carnie though.  She shared with us that they weren’t quite coming out the way she wished and managed to send her materials to a vendor that shaped them into the fantastic arrangement you see here.   We’ve totally got a winner with the cupcake liner poms that adorned the backyard railing and enhanced the groom-crafted and painted signs.  Yep that mural cut-out, directional sign, and wedding banner were all groomie made.  (While we’d normally give him the big DIY prize, we think he fared pretty well with an awesome bride.)  So what’s the can’t miss key attraction of the show? The World Famous Carnival Cakes!  Handcrafted by a bud, a gluten-free, rice krispy treat, and funfetti set of mesmerizing beauties were worthy of biggest prize yet! It’s weddings like these that make my job so fun!  A big thanks to Anda Photography for sharing this awesomely fun day!  I’ll leave you with some words of wisdom from bride Kelley: Make lists, prioritize, take on one task a day, give yourself reasonable deadlines and be sure to meet them. Don’t be scared of delegating, YOU CANT DO IT ALL BY YOURSELF! Perfection is impossible, be grateful for the love and support you’ll receive and don’t freak out if people don’t do things your way. Always remember you’re getting married because you love your spouse not because you love shiny things. Do keg stands. Congratulations Kelley and Larry!

Missouri's SBNation site, Rock M Nation, is one of the best around. I had the pleasure of exchanging emails with CapnCribbs to see just what Mizzou fans are thinking as we get closer to Saturday's noon showdown between top 25 teams in Sanford Stadium. I somehow broke two fingers and badly sprained my right hip in the process, but still managed to finish the drill. Can the Dawgs do the same come Saturday? (and no, I didn't really get hurt. My couch isn't made from Neyland turf after all) 1) Missouri sits at 5-0, but because of the schedule, they didn't crack the top 25 until this week (and that's the AP poll, as the coaches poll sits them just outside at 26). How much does the early season schedule contribute to the Tigers' success, and how much is finally having key players healthy? I think a lot of what is being said about Mizzou's early schedule has been overplayed. No, the Tigers did not start the season with an extremely difficult schedule, but Toledo and Indiana were great early season tests for a team that needed to rebuild some confidence after a season of injury and disappointment. (The Hoosiers actually walloped Penn State this week for what that's worth.) Mizzou fans are already getting sick of hearing "Well, let's see how they do against a real test this week" immediately followed by "Well that was a cupcake game, when will they play a real team?" I'm not going to sit here and tell you we expect Mizzou to win the SEC after beating Murray State, Indiana, Toledo, and Arkansas State, but the way Mizzou beat them is what's giving Tiger fans hope. The offensive line has developed some cohesiveness and the QB play/running game has greatly benefitted from that. The overall health of the team has been the biggest reason for the turnaround this season, so we feel for the Dawgs and their plague of injuries. James Franklin is finally back to 100% for the first time since his freshman season, Henry Josey recovered completely after he tore everything he could possibly tear in his knee, and after a year when only one offensive lineman (Evan Boehm) played in every game, we're seeing some consistency up front. This is a different Tigers team because our playmakers are finally back. 2) Averaging over 46 points per game, what should Georgia fans be most concerned with in the Tiger offense? Is it the aerial attack of Franklin, Washington, Green-Beckham, etc? Or the rushing attack of Hansbrough, Josey, and Murphy? And can you get us a little more familiar with what Missouri will try to do offensively now that Franklin is back and fully healthy (which he wasn't when we played last year)? As far as what Georgia specifically should be most concerned with, it's James Franklin (boring answer, I know). Yes, our receivers are extremely talented, but Franklin is back in full force and will beat you with his arms AND legs. From what I understand, Richt's defenses have struggled with mobile QBs throughout the years so Franklin could make him lose some sleep this week. He also does a fantastic job of distributing the ball to all of the playmakers at his disposal, so the Georgia defense won't be able to zone in on any one player. The rushing attack of our three-headed monster does a great job keeping things balanced as well, so this offense keeps defenses guessing which is what convinces me it is for real. The factor that makes this offense look so much different than last year is Franklin, mainly because we have a QB that can get the ball downfield. He's thrown a couple of picks this season that make you wonder what he was thinking, but other than that he's looked like one of the top QBs in the league. 3) What is going on with Missouri's pass defense? I see they sit last in the conference in yards allowed, but lead the league in sacks per game and interceptions per game. Georgia, even with losing some strong receivers, has the ability to do a lot of damage through the air, so which stat is to be believed, the yardage allowed probl
