Today was full of food! Ryan and I spent the majority of the day at my mother in law’s house at a birthday BBQ celebrating all of the October birthdays in the family.
Before we headed to Sarasota, we spent a few hours at my parents’ house helping my sister get some goodies together to take to Gainesville where she was heading to tailgate and cheer for the Gators in their big game against Alabama tonight. (They’re currently winning!)
We took my favorite white chocolate dipped Oreos and transformed them into Oreos that were more school spirited by dipping them in blue and orange sprinkles to show some University of Florida pride.
Then we made margarita cupcakes because what is a tailgate without a little tequila?
I was on a sugar high by the time we left for the birthday BBQ.
HomeGoods Pit Stop
Before going to the BBQ we made a pit stop at one of my all-time favorite home décor stores, HomeGoods. Oh how I wish we had a HomeGoods in Ocala!
We bought quite a few things for our home including a centerpiece for our dining room table, a trash can for my home office and picture frames for some prints I ordered online.
I really liked these two chairs for a sitting area in our house but they were vetoed by Ryan.
He was a much bigger fan of this print for our dining room…
I answered back with this little gem…
Neither made the cut. I’m not sure Lil’ Wayne has a place in the Fagan household.
After our adventures at HomeGoods, we made it to my mother in law’s house for the birthday BBQ.
As always, the food was fantastic!
Ribs, fried chicken, salad and watermelon filled my plate. I also had more than my fill of dessert that included chocolate cream pie, cheesecake and vanilla cake with buttercream frosting.
And some wine to wash it all down.
We spent the afternoon outside playing corn hole (my team lost) and catching up. It was the perfect afternoon of family and good food.
Time to chill on the couch with the fam and catch the rest of this UF/Alabama game! <—Like how I’m pretending to really care? Pretty sure I’ll be looking for a magazine or something within 10 minutes.
