♥ Footballs ‘n’ Cookies ♥

NEWZ ALERT: I have decided that Atlanta will be my footballs team this season because of this man, Osi Umenyiora. I have yet to figure out how to pronounce his name, but I can already tell that we have similar values.



Being the newest Atlanta fan and, thus, having fresh eyes on the situation, I’m proposing they change from the Falcons to one of these suggestions for the reasons of (1) FUN, (2) rhyming/alliteration (3) branding opportunities:

  • Atlanta Santas
    Lots of cookie options here.
  • Atlanta Atlases
    This would help combat their “streets” reputation.
  • Atlanta Fantas
    Like whuttt? Yum.

H/T to Christian for finding something that would make me care about footballs (cookies).

Dip Dye Chairs

Huzzah! I accomplished something on a Sunday! I giveth you… dip dye chairs!


I really like this example (below), but for £395 I was all “SAY WHAAA?!” and set out to make my own. 


I wanted a more ecclectic look anyway, so I thrifted three different wood chairs from Goodwill ($11.27 total! Or £8.23 if you swing that way.) and painted them all to look slightly different, but still “dipped.” I thought about staining them all first so they’d start out as the same color, but then I remembered that I really wanted to catch up on Sherlock, so PASS. 

I used up some leftover white paint (primer included) we had from painting the trim in our bedroom and used electrical tape to mark off where I wanted my lines (I think it sticks to wood way better than painting tape does). Two coats and 1.5 hours later and TV TIME YEAAAH LET’S GETTA PIZZA!
