Game night!

I'm so glad I asked everyone for their appetizer ideas. Now I have a few new tricks up my sleeve for the future, thanks ladies! I ended up using MotherHen's suggestion of a package of cream cheese with salsa and shrimp on top, minus the shrimp since SIL is a vegetarian, and served it with tortilla chips. YUM! I completely forgot that my mom uses the same "recipe" sometimes too (also without shrimp; I will definitely be trying it your way sometime, A), so thanks for the reminder. :) It's definitely a crowd-pleaser!

Hubs, both of my brothers, SIL and little niecey all had a great time last night. So much so that we decided to do "family game night" every week from now on! Just like the cheesy Hasbro commercials, but way cooler since we're so awesome of course. We played Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart on the Wii, and I don't mind tooting my own horn - I friggin' rocked the socks off of Mario Kart. With the exception of the first one (I was still getting the hang of the controllers) I won every race. I usually suck at video games, but like I said, Mario Kart has always been my favorite! My driver of choice was Luigi, but I cracked up at Allison's comment about how Princess Peach flashes her undies on the jumps! I'm going to have to check that out! ...Wow, how pervy did that sound?

After game night hubs and I managed to squeeze in a BD sesh, and not a moment too soon! I did see some EWCM yesterday as anticipated, so I'm thinking last night was probably our best shot for this C. We'll keep on it for a few more days just in case though. I've gotten my hopefulness down to the "cautiously optimistic" level, and am just trying not to think about it too much. So far so good, but we'll see what happens when the 2ww really kicks in! I think I'm gonna need to pick up a new sewing project... new covers for the throw pillows perhaps?

We played Mario Kart with our nephew at Christmas and it was pretty sad how a 5 year old kicked our asses in it! I was Princess Peach and she does flash her undies which is pretty funny.

I saw the title of your post and thought you were talking about the BCS Championship game. LOL Family game night sounds great. I used to have that when I was younger with my family. Its great getting the family together and having fun. I wish I could sew, def could use some curtains & throw pillows.
