My Dirty Little Secret and Dare to Share

Hi everyone.  My name is Kim, and I'm a Football Fanatic.  I don't know when it started.

It wasn't like I came from a high school that played football.  I played a little with my guy friends and my brother's friends, but it wasn't a passion.

Until I went to College.  Then it became almost like crack.  I was out there camping with the gang the night season tickets went on sale.  I was sporting all my college gear to each game.  I was standing there screaming at the other team, but not "throwing tortillas on the field."  (That was just weird.)

When I finally graduated from college, I kept up with the games, until my brothers were old enough to play for the high school football team.  By then, I was living back in Texas and enjoying the Friday Night Lights with everyone else in the great state.
I can't believe he was ever that little. (sigh)
Once my little brothers moved on, the Perfectionist started playing.  He only played a few years, and his team was the smallest in the league.  Both in players size and numbers. 

But I was still there at every game, yelling, cheering, and ignoring the eye rolls of the fans around me.

When we moved from Indiana to Colorado, all my football contact stopped.  The Perfectionist stopped playing football and I couldn't get my alma maters games until the next day.  (Where's the fun in watching games that way?)

But tonight, it all came back.

Tonight was the Perfectionist's return to high school football.  While the game was away, I was still screaming and cheering and yelling and enjoying the game...except I did it from the comfort of my house where only my kids could roll their eyes at me.

It wasn't the same, but it sure started my fanatic football fan juices flowing.  It was even better that we won 40-13.  I can't wait for more football!  Bring it on...

Did you see some of my blood pumping projects this week?  Okay, maybe that's a slight stretch, but I'm pretty excited about the new look on the blog.  Even I was pretty sick of how drab it was looking.  It's simple, but pretty and colorful.

I've also finally opened the blog up to Sponsors.  Did you see my great new friends? Jamberry and Rachel's Book Nook.  Go check them out and say Hi from me. You'll be glad to get your shopping fix in for some great projects that are great on the budget.

Did you also see my fun Mommy Blogger Parody? It was so much fun to write and illustrate.  Kinda crazy, but if I can find someone else to sing for me, you might see a few more parodies at some point.  They kind of flow around this house constantly, so I'm going to try and capture a few to share with you.

My friend and co-host Pam shared some other exciting news.  I have heard great things about the Target Cartwheel app, but haven't been able to try it since there isn't a Target near me.  But if there was, I would totally be checking out Pam's post about how to save more on Purex with Cartwheel.  

After all, I hate to do laundry, and spending a ton of money to do it, is like rubbing salt into my wounds.  No thanks!

So what has gotten your blood pumping this week?  I can't wait to see!
