Good Morning!  I hope your weekend was a good one!  We stayed in town this weekend and had a full day of football on Saturday.  Preston had a game in the morning and then we watched college football the rest of the day!  So to go along with our football viewing, I made this quick, delicious queso dip.  It's really easy and we gobbled it up while it was still warm (after a couple of pictures of course :)  Keep on reading for the yummy recipe.

Fall Table

Good Morning.  Since we are officially, according to the calendar, in the season of Autumn, I thought I would share my Fall table.  I don't do a lot of decorating for Fall, but I do like to add a little here and there in my home.  This year I was really loving the blue, orange, white combination.

The wooden box is from Home Goods and the perfect size for the center of the table to hold my mini pumpkins.  I already had the blue striped napkins, but picked up a couple of matching tea towels to drape over the box.  Inspired by Kelly's table, I decided to add the navy candle holders for an unexpected pop of color.  So those got a quick coat of navy spray paint.

Not wanting to add another color, I went with the baby's breath in my pitcher to keep with a more natural look.

I love passing by and seeing the table.  It definitely gets me excited for cooler weather and cozy gatherings.

Have a great day!
