Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
Soo many things to write about so I'm joining in with Carissa and Miscellany Mondays! It was a great weekend, even though I was battling a head cold!

[one] ChrisChris got a promotion at work! He interviewed for the new position a few weeks ago, and just received official notice this morning that he was selected!

[two] I made Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes for tailgating yesterday using this recipe from Annie's Eats.
I kind-of loved them, but the 'cookie dough' filling creeped me out... I don't like stuff in the middle of my cupcakes! I think I'll leave that out next time. I did try to 'pipe' the frosting on with a Ziploc baggie though, quite an upgrade from my spatula-smeared icing of the past.

[three] We celebrated my cousin's wife's birthday Saturday night. It was good to see everyone. I played beer pong for the first time in a while this weekend, I forgot how much fun that stupid game is! I was driving, so I let Chris drink my beer, I just did the 'shooting'! Good times, good times

[four] My aunt & uncle came over for dinner Friday night and I made two different kinds of pizza (check that off my 23-before-23 list!) I will share with you my recipes and feedback later in the week.

[five] Our boys in blue brought home another W yesterday! It wasn't pretty, but a win is a win! (Hehe that picture is a few years old, but I still love it! It's not everyday you run into a SuperBowl Champion quarterback downtown!)

[six] I'm on the hunt for a perfect pair of skinny jeans (for tucking into boots). Any opinions/suggestions are welcome! I bought a pair from Gap, but I can't say I'm crazy about them (they just don't fit me right...)


[seven] If you participated in our Snuggle Up Scarf Swap that Mateya and I hosted, and haven't linked up to show off your scarf yet, what are you waiting on?! Head over here now and link up!

That's all I've got for today ladies. Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Enjoyed your list! :) Try J Crew for skinny jeans/pants! I just got two pairs of the "toothpick" cords, and they're awesome!!

LOVE Peyton Manning. His commercials crack me up. Those cupcakes look SO GOOD!!! And... I bought a pair of skinny jeans from Forever 21...they were like $12/15 and they work great! :)

You're right. It wasn't a pretty win. And my boys managed to keep your boys out of the end zone until the very end.

YAY for Chris! That is awesome! And I would be kinda creeped out by the cookie dough filling too. I don't know what it is about gooey centers but sometimes it freaks me out. Ha! And I just found a great pair of skinny jeans at my Banana Republic outlet! If you don't have an outlet near you I'm sure the BR store has something great! Good luck.
