I absolutely love my new kitchen. Me = Totally Swooned.

Sure it’s at least twice the size of our old one, it has TONS of much needed storage, and this cute little counter corner for Thirsty Thursday specials… but that’s not even the best part.Β Can you guess??

It’s the blue cupboards!! In love!

Ignore the mess, focus on the blue πŸ™‚

We really rocked it out last night and got everything to their respected rooms and mostly put away.

Except for the clothes, I’m going through those bad boys today and giving away anything I haven’t worn in the last year. Forget spring cleaning, it’s fall cleaning round here.

Just in time for FOOTBALL!!

In case you don’t speak CAPS, I love football. Actually, I love Michigan Football and I enjoy watching the rest. We just got cable…. because it’s football season. That’s the fam style in these parts, how ’bout you?

Do you like football? How ’bout Tom Brady? He went to Michigan. Just saying πŸ™‚

Go Blue!

And Go College Football.

And Go Fantasy Football.

And Frittatas!

Moving is tough on the fridge and this was all she had to offer this morning.

Took the morning bounty and behold my humble creation.

Imagine a western omelet from Cracker Barrel in pie form.

Crunchy from the peppers ‘n onions, spicy and creamy from the cheese, light from the tomatoes and hearty because it’s baked.

Grab me a hunk of french bread and let’s eat. This is the perfect pregame starter. We have a long season ahead of us, better get prepared. (Yes, I refer to us as me and the Michigan football team. It’s a genetic condition, I swear.)

Make this and Go Blue!
