Super Bowl Sunday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
Super Bowl Sunday is usually a fun day with family and friends for us.
This year was a bit different.
Tristan has been a Seahawks fan since he was little and the nerves were really setting in, so we decided it would be best to stay home. He didn't want to be distracted and if, heaven forbid, they lost, he would've probably needed some alone time.

Staying home didn't keep us from having fun though.
We all put on our Seahawks gear and played with Calvin's Hawks football.

His face cracks me up! He was being such a goofball.
We even had festive socks!

I made Crock-Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches topped with Coleslaw and all washed down with hard cider.
I got the pulled pork recipe from a co-worker a couple years ago and I've been tweeking it to make it perfect.
It's so super easy and I promise, promise to put the recipe up on Wednesday.

I also wanted something sweet, so I whipped up a batch of Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark.
It tastes even better than it sounds.
And to make it Super Bowl appropriate, I sprinkled it with Seahawk colored dark chocolate M&M's.
Confession time: I didn't have any chocolate chips in the house, so I gathered up a bunch of chocolate left over from Christmas and chopped it up. I figured I was just going to melt it over the top anyway.
Totally worked!

Calvin sported his lucky Hawks Dipe but ended up sleeping through most of the game.

The game was a blow-out (as all of you know) and it was smiles all around!
This pic is going in the baby book and I'm going to try and snag a newspaper today to pop in there too.
Happy Seahawks fans!
