Browns Party!!!!

It is that time of year again - Football Season!!! I love football season! Every Sunday hubby and I park ourselves in front of the TV and cheer on the Browns! It is in my opinion the best time of year - it gives me a reason to cook for a crowd every single Sunday! Well maybe not every Sunday this year since we have a few Monday night games and even a Thursday night game but...
This year not only did we get to throw our annual Browns kick off the Season party in our new house we got to throw it in our just renovated basement rec-room! When I say "just renovated" I mean carpet installed Friday, furniture delivered Saturday, party on Sunday! I LOVE!!! our new basement!

See the chair in the corner - that is my chair, the female version of ones stake to a chair - it is a round swivel chair with a brown leather base, camel microfiber seat with a pillow back - oh so comfortable! I heart it very much!

I love the bar even more though! Oh it is so so so pretty!!! Especially against the red wall - the black marble top stands out and just pops! Oh I love it!!! Hubby and I have dreamed of having a bar in the basement but didn't really think we would ever be able to but I am so so glad that we jumped feet first into debt for it =)
We rationalize it to ourselves that this was our last big thing before popping out the kiddos so we deserve it!

My GORGEOUS niece Haylee enjoying the game with her rocking Aunt Meghan! Love love the cheer leading outfit!
Okay so now onto the food!
This year I cheated A LOT! We were so so busy getting the basement done that I needed easy and I mean E-A-S-Y for the food! So we had:
pulled pork BBQ Sandwiches (recipes will be in separate posts to come)
cheesy potatoes
Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic dip and Spinach and herb dip with the Wheat Beer Bread
deviled eggs
sugar cookies
sausage and cheese dip with tortilla chips brought by my friend Jami.
The BBQ Pork - very very yummy!

The dips in cute little football serving plates

My adorable football deviled eggs - yumm! Just snip and place the chives on to give the football look.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
